* The titular ''[[Disney/TheBlackCauldron Black Cauldron]]''. In the book, on the other hand, the Cauldron was very much its own thing. Hen Wen, on the other hand, served to be chased and clashed over until finally doing something in the final book.

** Darkseid isn't the most notable villain to want it; he's the ''only'' one who wants it, and the fact that in the finale` another villain [[spoiler: LexLuthor]] gets a hold of it is rather incidental [[spoiler: Lex only has it because he was looking for something, anything, to defeat Darkseid, and thats just what he was given.]] Darkseid doesn't actually spend much time searching for the Equation either and usually is out to conquer Earth and screw with Superman. The closest he gets to searching for it is one story where he [[spoiler: reprogrammes Brainiac]] and refers to him as "his solution to the Anti-Life Equation", meaning rather than look for the thing he'd decided to actually use a substitute.

* Acknowledged in an episode of ''SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'' when Sabrina and Chloe find themselves trapped inside a video game. The only way to escape is to retrieve an artifact from a citadel at the other end of the country. What's this item called? The Golden [=MacGuffin=].

** DonRosa's life stories of Scrooge [=McDuck=] make this even more explicit by detailing his adventures around in search of wealth, and the sharp downturn after he could just lie back and manage it. The treasures he's now seeking are less important than the ability to zoom halfway across the planet to do it.

* ''CodenameKidsNextDoor'', "Operation R.E.P.O.R.T." refers to its [=MacGuffin=] as The Goods until practically the end of the story, where it turns out to just be a pizza they were suppose to get. But at least they actually reveal it... the mysterious ice cream flavor that Numbuh 5 and the DCFDTL were fighting over in "Operation F.L.A.V.O.R." gets "name-cancelled" the only time it's going to be mentioned, when the others have phoned Numbuh 5.
