*** Between going through a personal hell, his mind clearly not working straight, it being the '70s and him shooting up to dull the pain, Xavier closely resembles a shell-shocked Vietnam veteran. Creator/JamesMcAvoy has even called it his ''Film/BornOnTheFourthOfJuly'' look.

* According to ''Entertainment Weekly'''s review of TheJonasBrothers' [[ThreeDMovie 3-D concert movie]], there's one part where the brothers spray foam at the audience -- out of a hose, if I remember the article correctly. The reviewer only hopes that the target audience doesn't see the symbolism in this.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': The animal police, due their own unexamined prejudices treat predators differently. [[spoiler: A politician whips up anger at predators with a reputation for violence for political gains.]] Many have commented that this is Disney's most political film for the subtle and not so subtle messages about race.

** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'': Mystique refuses to answer to Raven Darkholme (her birth name) because "that's my slave name."

** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'': Mystique refuses to answer to Raven Darkholme (her birth name) because "that's my slave name."" Considering the franchise's rather unsubtle use of HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster and Mystique/Raven's struggle about the discrepancy between the way she appears and her true identity, it also brings to mind a transgender person adopting a new name that reflects their gender.

* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': [[spoiler:Kylo Ren]] interrogating an abducted [[spoiler:Rey]] while the latter is tied down and in obvious terror and pain has more than a few parallels with a rape scene.

* The scene at teh start of ''Film/StuartLittle'' where the Littles meet and decide to adopt Stuart plays out like a white family adopting a black kid. The adoption agent even says "We try to discourage parents from adopting outside their own... species. It rarely works out".

* In ''[[Literature/{{Twilight}} New Moon]]'', one of the wolf pack's wives gets her face nearly clawed off because she made her wolfman angry. But she forgives him, and acts like it never happened, because that's what good women do. UnfortunateImplications abound whether or not this is meant to be taken literally (and with StephenieMeyer's writing, who can say?)
