* In the ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' episode "Run Pig Run," Spider-Man is [[BalefulPolymorph transfigured into a pig]] by Loki and thus made the target of an Asgardian boar hunt. In comes Thor, but sadly, Thor doesn't have the authority to call off the hunt. As Thor tells the hunters, however, he may not be able to officially call off the hunt, there's nothing in the rules that says Thor can't interfere with the hunt and slow them down.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHBJL3q_W-Qv one]] Cartoon Network short centering on ''WesternAnimation/PixieDixieAndMrJinks'', Pixie and Dixie, sick of constantly being tormented by Mr. Jinks, go to court and have a [[HollywoodRestrainingOrder restraining order]] on him (literally; it is pinned to his chest), ensuring that he can't come within three feet of either one of them without the cops jumping on him in a BigBallOfViolence, even if Pixie and Dixie are the ones to come near ''him''. In the end, Jinks is able to get around it by using the ExactWords of the restraining order ("Whosoever wears this is not to come within three feet of Pixie and/or Dixie") to his advantage, simply yanking the order off of his chest and sticking it to a grandfather clock in the WraparoundBackground.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': It's revealed during the Battle For Mewni that [[spoiler: decades ago, Moon learned the spell that could bypass [[KnightOfCerebus Toffee]]'s HealingFactor by making a deal with [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] [[SealedEvilInACan Eclipsa]], promising her that Eclipsa would be released from her prison when Tpfee was ''dead''. So Moon simply injured him with the spell, knowing his armies would flee when their general no-longer had his HealingFactor, and keeping Eclipsa sealed]]. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: Toffee proves to be too mcuh of a threat to live, forcing Star to kill him, and unknowingly setting Eclipsa free]].

** The episode "Square Footed Monster" introduces Edward Hornsby, a lawyer who specializes in finding loopholes to win cases. After Ted Wasanasong's commissioned, poorly built, [=McMansion=] threatened to fall and crush the homes of Hank and co., the neighbors got together and tore it down before a storm could. Ted sued them for destruction of private property, but Hornsby convinced the judge that according to the ruling of an older case, Hank and friends' actions were legitimated under state law. Ted then leased his property to the city to put an electric relay station, Hornsby agreed to represent them to petition the government to camouflage the eyesore under the condition they name it after him.

** There's also "Kung Timmy", in which Timmy wishes for "amazing kung-fu powers". The "rules of kung-fu" state that it must only be use for self-defence, ''never'' for vengeance"...[[IdiotBall which Timmy completely ignores in an attempt to beat the crap out of Francis]], who'd stolen the Turner's home. Because he's using his kung-fu for vengeance, which is against the rules, his powers won't work...until [[AbhorrentAdmirer Tootie]] arrives to help and [[WouldHitAGirl Francis threatens to beat her up as well]]. Since Timmy is now fighting to defend Tootie and not just hurt Francis, his powers start working again.

** In "Wish Fixers", HP puts shock collars on Cosmo and Wanda which electrifies them if Timmy grants a wish that's not approved and the only wish approved is that he hands control of Fairy World to the pixies. Timmy wishes Cosmo and Wanda were made of rubber, a material which doesn't conduct electricity, and the contract stated that Timmy would be let loose if he broke his bad wish habit, which he technically did by making a very ''smart'' wish that directly benefited his fairies.
