* In Literature/KingDork, after Tom and Sam Hellerman's band performs at a school talent show, Sam sells a zine with lyrics to their songs. A lot of them criticize the mean assistant principal, Mr. Teone. Tom mentions in passing that one of the songs is called "Mr. Hitler, Mr. Stalin, Mr. Teone." ([[spoiler: After it's revealed that Mr. Teone was filming underage students having sex and selling the tapes, it's not quite as much an example of this trope - but still an extreme comparison.]])

* In the second ''Esther Diamond'' book by Creator/LauraResnick, ''Dopplegangster'', Esther screams at the BigBad for his various horrible deeds while hitting him, ending with the fact he nearly ''ruined'' her ''audition''. To be fair, she's an actress and that ''was'' pretty important for her.

--> Then He gets creative. He starts naming all the horrible animals that will come to dwell in Edom. Exactly which ones depends on your preferred translation. The King James Version translates these as unicorns, satyrs, and screech-owls.

** Gilderoy Lockhart: "Order of Merlin Third Class, Honorary Member of the Dark Force Defence League and Five-Time Winner of Witch Weekly's Most Charming Smile Award." And he thinks that last one is his greatest achievement ([[spoiler: it actually is]]), which makes Harry's detention in that book all the funnier. "Thought you'd make an entrance, didn't you? Well, it's not quite the Most Charming Smile Award, but it's a start, Harry, it's a start!"
** During the Ministry's smear campaign against Dumbledore in ''Order of the Phoenix'', he joked that he didn't care that they strip him of all his awards and honors, unless they ''take away his Chocolate Frog Card''.

** During the first Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'':
-->"You need to be prepared. You need to be alert and watchful. You need to put that away, Miss Brown, when I'm talking."\\
Lavender jumped and blushed. She had been showing Parvati her completed horoscope under the desk.

** Another example comes from ''Order of the Phoenix'' on a sign at St. Mungo's Hospital. The Plant and Potion Poisoning department deals with "Rashes, Regurgitation, Uncontrollable Giggling, Etc." Then subverted by the end of the same book, when Ron's encounter with uncontrollable giggling is what nearly gets him killed.



** At the beginning of ''Prisoner of Azkaban'', there's a nice example of an inversion: "Harry Potter was a highly unusual boy in many ways. For one thing, he hated the summer holidays more than any other time of the year. For another, he really wanted to do his homework, but was forced to do it in secret, in the dead of night. And he also happened to be a wizard."
