* ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'' has the [fictional] viking version with "Loki Day", in honor of Trickster god Loki. Due to the nature of the day Fishlegs discovery of an unusual dragon turns into a "Peter and the Wolf" scenario.

* ''WesternAnimation/WhatsWithAndy'' has an episode "Gooey Chewies", in which April Fool's Day falls on [[LoveInterest Lori Mackney]]'s birthday party, to which [[ThePrankster: Andy]] is invited, but he's not allowed to pull pranks. That doesn't stop him, Danny, and Lori's dad from pranking, though. [[spoiler: In fact, even Lori eventually joins in with the pranks.]]

** In "Fool's Paradise", the Louds send Luan to a clown camp so they won't have to deal with her pranks, but it turns out that Luan had planned the whole thing to lure them into a ''Franchise/{{Saw}}''-like trap.

* Came up in Twitch streamer Beaglerush's ''VideoGame/LongWar'' campaign of all places. After losing some of his best soldiers in an eleventh hour base defense mission, an irate Beagle passed the game's PointOfNoReturn, which was unfortunate since he needed to build some equipment for his replacement team. Since passing time normally was no longer an option, Beagle spent ten minutes real-time and a week in-game running the clock by flying a Skyranger to the final mission site, aborting the attack, flying back to base, and repeating the process until the equipment was ready. In a hilarious coincidence, this meant that the final battle took place on April 1st, making it all one overly-elaborate April Fool's joke at the aliens' expense.

-->'''Tom Tucker:''' Yes, April Fools. We, at Channel 5 News conducted the whole black hole story as part of our commitment to be festive around the holidays.
-->'''Diane Simmons:''' And with only eighty-seven suicides and widespread looting, we think this was a pretty successful practical joke!
--> '''Brian:''' [[DudeNotFunny You... DICKS!]]

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'' has a chapter where the Platoon fools Fuyuki and Natsumi into thinking they have gotten serious about their invasion of Earth - they even hijack some news broadcasts and internet sites to amplify the effect of their supposed attacks on the population. It even includes a number of {{Shout Out}}s to OrsonWelles' radio adaptation of ''Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds''.
