* Watching AMVHell 5, I was amused by the pairing of ''{{Manga/Gantz}}'' with the song Singing in the Rain, thinking it a matter of LyricalDissonance of a lighthearted song paired with violence. Then I remembered ''Film/AClockworkOrange''...

* The FruitsBasket fanfic "Eyes of the Cat" is known for a few things - but two of those things are a lot of filler chapters, and having one of the only likable Original Characters in all of fanfiction - the second is because Kyo and the OC mesh well together (and, thankfully, purely in a platonic sense). Its only if you reread the fanfic from the beginning, and read it all the way through in one sitting that you realize those filler chapters are designed solely to alter Kyo's character in a believable way. Each of those chapters describes events which, on their own, are humorous but plotless; its only when read together that you realize you are actually watching Kyo's character evolve and change in a realistic fashion because of those events while still keeping the main attributes of his original character.

** One might argue that Creator/AgentMatt's works are the same way. For anybody who's read his fanfics regarding ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretShow'', you might've noticed that all of them revolve around the popular OneTruePairing of the show. Well, that's because they're supposed to be StealthParodies of fanfics that pervert the characters to fit the narrative of said pairing being soulmates forever and ever. (For example, "Anita's Birthday Gift" and "Sneaky Agent" both have plots where Alphonse has been given the RonTheDeathEater treatment to manipulate the readers into rooting for Victor, who is by and large a [[PossessionSue Possession]] RelationshipSue.

* After reading most of Peter Chimeara's works as well ''MyImmortal'', I've come to realize that even horrible fiction can be deep and meaningful upon drunken nights and deep consideration. ''{{Doom Repercussions of Evil}}'', itself a parody of twist-heavy pretentious faux-deep fiction, has deep insight into the motives and drive of the human race. Don't get me started on analogues to racism. Then there's ''Batman: Nemesis Fight'', which if played straight and filmed, would be BY FAR the best batman movie ever made. Why does Robin leave batman? Because, Batman has broke his own rules after losing everything. Robin loses the will to fight. Regarding My Immortal, Tara Gilesbie creates a fictional world so completely bizarre and surreal that it's hard to call it anything but original. Put simply, gay vampire witch goffs go to a magic school, split on West Side Story style grounds.

* Back before I became a co-author of ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1319848 Something New]]'', an earlier version of this story had a scene where Scout's mother was described as blushing despite my headcanon suggesting that she's in her late 50s. Once I came to the point where she revealed that [[spoiler:she's pregnant again]] and did some research, it hit me. She might've actually conceived naturally thanks to being on hormone replacement therapy (HRT); it's remarkably similar to the case of Dawn Brooke, a British woman who was 59 years old when she gave birth by way of C-section in 1997.

* In ''FanFic/GameOfTouhou'', the leader of the rebellion Byakuren Hijiri is hailed as a [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVillified revolutionary]] that ended the reign of House Sanzu (after Mad Queen Eiki Shiki plunged the realm in war, while her sucessor, Queen Komachi, was much better). However, after she ascends to the throne, she reveals to be an ineffectual leader, that can't make difficult decisions, [[spoiler:to the point she prefers to [[DrivenToSuicide kill herself]].]] This makes sense if you consider that in canon Byakuren is a well-meaning but ultimately incompetent leader, that barely can control the youkai under her wing in Myouren Temple.

** [[spoiler: Sonic being created by Maledict via CloningBlues]] is a very clever parody of the biblical Immaculate Conception. [[spoiler: Sonic]] was born in a "virgin birth" (cloning) by "God" ([[spoiler: Maledict]])

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11157943/1/ I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For]]'', Harry Potter once listed his age on a form as "Do you mean physically, mentally, or existentially?". For several chapters, it's considered just another sign that he's a {{Troll}} (which he really is). But once his history comes to light, it's revealed that Harry stopped aging in his twenties, was born roughly 1700 years ago, and an accident with several Time Turners flung him 200 years into the future, making it a valid question. He's physically around 25, mentally 1500, and has existed for 1700 years.

** The Demon Empire in general is a pretty blatant copy of the Roman Empire. And it's not TheThemeParkVersion; it's both the good and the bad, without any sort of embellishment. It brings order, justice, law, education, peace, language, art, religion, culture, and many other things to the galaxy. Unfortunately, it's also a slaveholding state where hedonism and SocialDarwinism rule. *** It's also pretty brilliant if you take a look at the Bible; the "Whore of Babylon" and the other symbols of evil from Revelation are usually interpreted as Rome, so it makes sense that the Demons themselves would be based on it.
