** A similar gag in "Porky Pig's Feat"(1943): the hotel manager reads off Porky and Daffy's huge bill like an auctioneer. Daffy responds with "Sold to America!" and whomps him on the head.

** Bart once attended an auction where he runs away after his bid is declared the highest one. The auctioneer then offered the item to the second-highest bidder, who also runs away. The auctioneer then asks if there are any ''real'' bids for that item. There aren't.
** Homer once forced Bart and Lisa to keep their place in a line and they retaliated by offering it to the highest bidder. Fat Tony offers a lollipop and everyone is afraid of making a higher bid.

* The 2000 edition of ''Pay Day'' (which is in the Game Boy Advance version that also comes with Yahtzee and the TabletopGame/GameOfLife) has "Deal" cards that are "Auction Deals": instead of the Auction Deal only for the player who drew it, ''all the players'' can bid on it, highest bidder winning it. The catch is, only the player who drew it (or only the human players in the Game Boy Advance version as they must use the GB Advance or NintendoDS that the game is played on) knows the true value of the Deal. Getting other players (especially the AI players) to bid where they either lose money on the Deal or don't make enough in proportion to the bid and how much time is left to redeem the Deal (which can only be done on a "Found A Buyer" space or a mail card that lets you move to the next "Found a Buyer" space) for can be game-changing (any Deal, especially an Auction Deal, drawn late in the game might get no buyers if a player doesn't think he can get a roll that would let him land on "Found a Buyer" in time; games can be as long as six 31-day months to as few as just '''one''') as a Deal still held at the end of the game is worth '''NOTHING.'''

** ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' is a whole game show built around this trope, with a twist: many games require the players to guess as close as possible to a prize's correct price without going over. The original show (1956-65) was piloted as "Auction-Aire" (having first appeared on local New York City TV as ''The Sky's The Limit'') as it took the form of a modified auction.

Creator Bob Stewart developed it after seeing an auction house moderator conduct a contest using this format, only the closest bidder to the price without going over got to buy the item at the winning bid price.

* In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', Quark held an auction for items Vash brought over from the Gamma Quadrant. Q had a little fun with it.
** "In The Cards" also had an auction where Jake and Nog tried to buy a 1951 Willie Mays baseball card for Captain Sisko. Unfortunately the card is part of a lot that another bidder wins, which sets off the ChainOfDeals plot to get it.
