** The Smiling Titan. This is the Titan that, back in the first chapter, ate Eren's mother. Eren is able to take his revenge on this Titan later in the series. Even later than that, as we learn about the past of Eren's father Grisha, we learn [[spoiler:his first wife, Dina, was part of a LaResistance movement with Grisha in a nation outside the walls. When the resistance was sold out, Dina was one of many sentenced to be turned into a Titan and set loose behind the walls. Dina swears to Grisha that no matter what she becomes she'll find him. Then she transforms into the Smiling Titan]]. Essentially, the Smiling Titan was [[spoiler:Grisha's first wife who, even as a mindless Titan, managed to find where he lived, killed Grisha's second wife, Carla, and was eventually killed his and Carla's son]].

* Just like the above, Scott Freeman's conviction of possession of child pornography makes scenes of Sarue of ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'' creeping on various women not as funny as originally intended and especially when he's creeping on Chiho who is a minor.

* In ''LightNovel/{{Shimoneta}}'', Anna obviously became a [[MemeticMutation meme generator]] for her "love nectar". Then her seiyuu, Creator/MiyuMatsuki, tragically died shortly after the show finished airing, of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epstein%E2%80%93Barr_virus Epstein-Barr virus]], a form of herpes which can, according to Wikipedia, be spread by saliva and (ahem) ''genital secretions''. [[DudeNotFunny The joke lost its humor after that.]]

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStoneOcean'', written in 2000, contains a VillainOfTheWeek named Xander [=McQueen=], with the power to damage a target by injuring himself. He uses this ability by trying desperately to commit suicide, thus bringing a hero down with him. He was named after fashion designer Alexander [=McQueen=], who committed suicide in 2010.

* ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex 2nd Gig'' explores on the refugee crisis which is one of the important storylines of the show. The 2015 migrant crisis in Europe caused by the political and religious unrest in the Middle East made the show very relevant.

* ''[[Anime/HisCooolSehaGirls Hi sCoool SeHa Girls]]'' ends on an uplifting note as each of the heroines go on to become video game consoles developed by {{Sega}} and become beloved by the world. Sadly, reality isn't as kind: Sega has been out of the hardware market for years, and the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast were both commercial failures (the former suffering from a disastrous launch and the latter going strong for only two years before [[UsefulNotes/{{Playstation 2}} Sony stamped them out]]). The [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Sega Mega Drive]] faired a bit better, but also eventually lost out to Nintendo.

** Chihiro Shindou's amnesia-inducing car accident in the preceding season ''a tale of memories'' (which first aired in 2007) is also this when her sister Kei's English voice actress, Brittney Karbowski, would actually get involved in a car crash in 2010.

* ''Creator/FourKidsEntertainment'', a rather infamous dubbing company ironically ended up being this when they went out of business. While many actually cheered when it happened, 4kids was actually the last haven of the SaturdayMorningCartoon block. After they went out of business, the CW temporarily replaced the block, but eventually scrapped it all together thanks to American governemnt wanting more kid-friendly educational programming.

** Other anime episodes not aired by networks for being too close in subject matter would include an episode of ''Pokemon'' in which a skyscraper is destroyed by a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant Tentacruel]].
** Similarly, the episode "Tower of Terror" was banned in North America for almost two years after September 11th, and the episode "A Scare in the Air" was renamed "Spirits in the Sky".
** Ironically, that didn't stop the scene of Tentacruel smashing a tower from being in the show's opening for the rest of the Indigo League season.
