* Similar to the above, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'''s comically evil and somewhat loony "President Business" turned out to be a pretty good match for Trump, a businessman president with authoritarian aspirations. They both [[VillainWithGoodPublicity have a bizarre amount of popularity]] despite hitting quite a few checkboxes for ObviouslyEvil.

* Whenever we saw someone mention St. Olga's School For Wayward Princesses in ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', it'd [[RunningGag usually be accompanied]] by a CutawayGag of a hilariously out-of-place conveyor belt dragging someone screaming into a dark, shadowy castle. It ''was'' funny, until we saw [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors what St. Olga's was really like]]...

** In "Game of Flags", Star complains that her mother, Queen Moon, was allowed to join the game of Flags when she was Star's age, and Moon replies "I did a lot of things you won't be doing." Fans speculated that Moon was a FormerTeenRebel, until the season 3 episode "Moon the Undaunted" revealed [[spoiler: Moon became queen at a young age when her mother ''was killed by Toffee, then a rogue monster soldier, during the signing of a peace treaty''. Not only that, Moon was driven to make a DealWithTheDevil with [[TheDreaded Eclipsa, Queen of Darkness]] in order to learn a dangerous dark magic spell in order to defeat Toffee and put a stop to his rebellion.]]

Added DiffLines:

** "Potty Emergency" has a scene where Wakko tries to use the women's restroom at a movie theater due to the men's room being out of order and gets kicked out. The controversy over transgender people and gender-specific bathrooms in the mid-2010s makes this moment cringe-worthy.

** "Samurai Quack" has one gag where Dodgers carves his way through countless robots, but pulls back from striking a human because he can't get away with that with a Y7 rating (a jab at how ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' got away with plenty of violence because it was directed towards robots and not organic beings). Then Season 5 of the latter show aired, and Jack brutally slashes the throat of one of the (very human) Daughters of Aku, whom he had assumed was just another one of Aku's robotic minions.
*** It got worse. The 9th episode of Season 5 had shown that the daughters of Aku being the [[NotHyperbole ''literal'']] Daughters of him.

*** It got worse. The Achoo's (Aku's parody) spoof of Darth Vader's iconic WeCanRuleTogether scene doesn't sound as hilarious when the 9th episode of Season 5 had shown that the daughters of Aku being the [[NotHyperbole ''literal'']] Daughters of him.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' pilot, the suicide booth Fry uses is promoted as "America's favorite suicide booth since 2008". At first it was just a silly side comment, but now it's funny (in a dark kinda way) since 2008 was the year the suicide machine was invented, and the year the American economy tanked, which would be reason enough for anyone (particularly stock brokers and those who work with money on the savings and investments scale) to be DrivenToSuicide.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode [[https://youtu.be/RIcvtTd-DQw "The Election"]] is about a mock election that Arthur's third grade class holds as they learn about the American government. [[RichBitch Muffy]] is an ambitious female candidate with PowerHair, Arthur is a down-to-earth candidate who wants to help people out, and Binky is a self-aggrandizing CloudCuckoolander candidate with unfeasible ideas [[spoiler:who somehow wins the election]]. Fifteen years after this first aired, it comes across as an uncanny prophecy for the 2016 U.S. presidential election, with Muffy as Hillary Clinton, Arthur as Bernie Sanders, and Binky as Donald Trump.
