* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'':
** The ShowWithinTheShow [[{{Flanderization}} flanderizes]] Unalaq, the BigBad of book 2, in an effort to get people to realize that he was indeed the bad guy by showing him as an OmnicidalManiac. [[spoiler: This became unfunny when it turned out that Unalaq was indeed such after becoming the Dark Avatar.]]
** The original series has The Ember Island Players, about a Fire Nation play about the cast, which is about as hilarious a warping of reality as the Unalaq play. Then came TheMovie, where pretty much everything the actual Gaang had a NoJustNoReaction to in the play was true of the movie's portrayal. The movie goes on to be considered InNameOnly and universally reviled by fans, ''not even liked by people new to the franchise and unfamiliar with what the cast was supposed to look and act like,'' and generally cemented Creator/MNightShyamalan's FallenCreator status, [[StarDerailingRole derailed the lot of the cast's careers]], and put a hitch in the 3D revival with it's last minute conversion and the Razzies that it won for it.

* In a bad naming coincidence, the organization which the protagonists of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' work for is named ISIS, the International Secret Intelligence Service. Among other things, they have engaged in counter-terrorism and espionage, unintentionally racking up high body counts and causing international incidents. The group is a parody of intelligence agencies, and allows the writers, usually through Lana or Mallory, to give their opinions on the fubared nature of covert geopolitics, and the horrible things that happen when said politics go wrong. Unfortunately, in early 2014, an organization known as ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, rose to prominence, the result of several geopolitical disasters in the Middle East. Among other things, they have engaged in terrorism and mass murder, purposefully causing an international incident and racking up a high body count. The trouble caused by the real life ISIS has lead to the creators to drop the name from the sixth season onwards.

** The "Remembering [=SpongeBob=]" montage from "The Sponge Who Could Fly" is rather ''heartbreaking'' if you think about it as remembering pre-Seasonal Rot [=SpongeBob=].

* The series finale of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' was a [[NoFourthWall very meta]] story that basically discussed the show and what kind of series may replace it. The possible sequel show is given a lot of friendly riffing, with predictions that it'll be [[ConspicuousCGI animated with cheap CGI]], be DarkerAndEdgier in contrast to ''Brave And The Bold's'' LighterAndSofter {{Reconstruction}}, that it would be CutShort, and various other such jokes. Nearly ''every single prediction'' made about such a show ended up actually happening to the next Batman show, ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'', all the way down to the show getting ScrewedByTheNetwork just as it was GrowingTheBeard.

** The episode "Call of the Cutie" sees Scootaloo tell Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon they're "stuck being stuck up". [[spoiler:"Crusaders of the Lost Mark" reveals Diamond Tiara's mother is practically abusing her to act like a proper 'rich pony', which basically translates into being a stuck up snob to anyone beneath her, meaning Scootaloo was more right than one would think.]]
** Seven months after the episode "Hurricane Fluttershy" aired, most of the United States' Mid-Atlantic region was devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

** The Season 1 episode "Over a Barrel" has Fluttershy's memetic statement of her desire to be a tree. [[spoiler: In Season 7's "A Health of Information", she is one of the victims of the "Swamp Fever" disease which ends with turning into a tree.]]
** Happened twice with the Season 2 episode "Hurricane Fluttershy":

*** Fluttershy pretends to be sick to get out of training, painting spots all over her body and calling her ailment "pony pox". [[spoiler: In Season 7's "A Health of Information", the same colored spots turn out to be one of the symptoms of the aforementioned "Swamp Fever" disease]].

* 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.

* 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 rather popular 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.]]

** "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.
