* AllJustADream has quite a broad scope. It can be used for a single scene, entire episodes, entire seasons (''Series/{{Dallas}}''), or even [[MindScrew the entire series]] (''Series/StElsewhere'', ''Series/{{Newhart}}''). It can be a regular dream (''Film/TheWizardOfOz'') a [[CuckoosNest psychotic delusion of innocence]] told by an UnreliableNarrator (''Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari'') or even a "simulation"(''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''; 6th season, episodes 4th and 5th). ''Series/{{Newhart}}'' managed to make fun of this, ''and'' [[UpToEleven crank it up even further]] by claiming that series was the dream of a character (played by the same actor) in ''another series'' (namely ''Series/TheBobNewhartShow'').

* In terms of MalevolentArchitecture, Console {{Roleplaying Game}}s tend to have loads of enemies, but rarely any hazards in the buildings, save for the occasional lava floor. On the other hand, ''TabletopGame/TombOfHorrors'' is infamous for having loads of traps in every room.

* XanatosGambit and BatmanGambit are both about specific types of ingenious plans. The thing is there is nothing saying they have to be of a certain scale. Using these plans could involve just getting a promotion from your boss, to [[TakeOverTheWorld world conquest]].
