* SexForServices: In an early episode, [[Main/TheGrimReaper Death]] comes for Peter, but twists his ankle and the Griffins nurse him back to health in the hopes that he'll spare Peter out of gratitude. At one point Death tells Lois that he might consider it if she does something for him. Lois sighs and starts unbuttoning her blouse; [[SubvertedTrope Death quickly interrupts, saying he just wanted more food]].

** In a parody of Cinderella, Peter points out that Cinderella and the Prince entered in an "ill advised long-term relationship" and points out it only lasted 7 months as they got married before even getting to know each other.

* ToiletPaperSubstitute:
** In season 2 "There's Something About Paulie", while Peter is using the toilet, a member of the Mafia appears to tell him that he has to see the Don to repay his favor. When Peter realizes that he's out of toilet paper, he uses an ''Entertainment Weekly'' magazine as a substitute.
-->'''Peter''': [[TakeThat Well, at least that's one problem solved.]]
** In season 8, "Spies Reminiscent of Us", when Peter tries to use the bathroom in Cleveland's abandoned house, he finds out there's no toilet paper. Peter runs offscreen to Joe's house and asks him if he can borrow something from him, Joe allows it, unaware of what Peter is doing. When he runs back onscreen into Cleveland's house, [[RefugeInAudacity he's carrying the American flag]].

** The first thing done once Cleveland returned back to Quaghog was Peter, Quigmire and Joe giving [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow his show]] a verbal thrashing and how unfunny and unpopular it was despite a very decent four season run.

* SmartAnimalAverageHuman: Brian Griffin, the DeadpanSnarker and OnlySaneMan who happens to be the family pet dog of the Griffin family. He is far more intelligent than the others in the family and the only one who competes with his intelligence is Stewie, the youngest boy in the family. But, Brian and Stewie leave this trope ZigZagged. While Brian and Stewie are very intelligent for their age (and species for that matter), there are some differences between when they are paired up. Stewie is highly intellectual and can build many scientific inventions like time machines while Brian is a cynical but wise atheist who just loves to talk about what is wrong with the world to anybody. However, because Stewie is only a baby, he has a lot to learn about the world around him while Brian has lived much longer and has much more experience with the world than Stewie does and helps Stewie grow. In layman's terms, Stewie is smarter but more naive than Brian, however, Brian is dumber but wiser than Stewie. At best, their duo is "Wise Animal, Smart Human".

* RealityEnsues: It's as if the writers flip a coin to decide which situations will run to cartoon logic and which will have real-world results.
** Watching a WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon where Bugs Bunny's "What's up Doc?" is answered by Elmer shooting him down and then snapping Bugs' neck.
** A version of Film/HomeAlone has the burglars easily evading the childish traps and shooting Kevin dead to avoid witnesses.
** A take on Film/DirtyDancing has Johnny's "nobody puts Baby in the corner" speech interrupted by Baby's father having him arrested for being a 41-year old man sleeping with a teenager and sent to jail.
** Finding the man who crippled him, Joe shoots him in the kneecaps. He tells the gang he didn't want to kill the guy, just give him a small taste of what he did to Joe and when he recovers, he'll understand. When Joe turns around, he finds the man has bled to death.
** When Peter and the gang pretend to be Series/TheATeam, they tell the construction workers at a site that they're only going to have their vehicles crashed and they'll be able to walk it off. The workers point out how even a minor accident tends to leave long-term damage to your neck and nerves.
** Winning the lottery, Peter decides to jump into a pile of gold like Scrooge McDuck and breaks half his body on the hard gold bars and coins.
** When Quagmire loses his pilot's license, Peter drugs the pilots of a plane so Quagmire can land it and be a hero. It does work but Peter is then arrested for hijacking and public endangerment.
** Not to mention how Peter and Stewie are responsible for the deaths of people because of dumb accidents than in another cartoon are just played for laughs.
