Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/TheWickedAndTheDivine:'' Laura's "Shakespeare in the Dark" scene from #3 is a direct reference to the trope namer. She picks up the fake Morrigan head, makes a Shakespeare-esque speech, which convinces Baph and Morri to stop fighting.

->''"[[TropeNamers Alas, poor Yorick!]] I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen? Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must come; make her laugh at that."''

* One of the most heart-rending moments in ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}'' especially as the guy was still alive (being a [[HollywoodCyborg cyborg]]) had always been nervous and never wanting to fight, just wanted to get home to his family and was sobbing and begging forgiveness as he went.

* Happens in the fourth chapter of ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' when Owari holds Nidai's head in her arms. The {{Squick}} factor is lessened by the fact that it's a [[HollywoodCyborg robot head]], however.
