* Creator/DLAbaoaqu likes to put in his series, ''WebVideo/CantBelieveIsNotAVGN'', quite a few references to MobileSuitGundam and the ColdWar here and there, as well as making various TakeThat at FamilyGuy and other works by Seth Mcfarlane.

* There are a lot of doctors in ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Ross Geller (paleontologist), Rachel's father Leonard Green (vascular surgeon), Drake Ramoray (fictional neurosurgeon), Rachel's fiance Barry Farber (orthodontist), Richard Burke (ophthalmalogist), Timothy Burke (ophthalmalogist), Charlie Wheeler (paleontologist) and a pair of physicians played by [[{{ER}} George Clooney and Noah Wyle]]... and that's just the family and the love interests...

* The queue for ''Ride/PopeyeAndBlutosBilgeRatBarges'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]] contain advertisements for "Popeye's Cruises", which show that one of the cruise's activities is "Spinach Everything", and the cruise's restaurant menu consists of things like Spinach Salad, Spinach Soup, Spinach Juice, and Spinach Surprise.

** James Jacobs, the creative head at Paizo, is also a huge paleo-geek, so much so that he has made sure that EVERY hardcover monster book published contains at least four dinosaurs.

* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/kalash93 Kalash93]] loves GratuitousForeignLanguage, GunPorn, dark backstories, world building, head coverings, and things influenced by Russia, especially its military.
** In pretty much every one of his stories where he mentions firearms, expect at least one to be of Soviet or Russian origin. He has a real thing for [[MeaningfulName Kalashnikovs,]] often equipping the protagonist with one. He also has distaste for AR family (M16/M4 & derivates) weapons, which often end up in the hands of villains.
** Kalash really likes his military uniforms and equipment, especially camouflage uniforms and whatever else a character may be wearing. He is especially fond of eastern bloc uniforms and gear, often naming exact models and describing such things in vivid detail.
** He also seems to like making his protagonists {{ShellShockedVeteran}}s to one extent or another. Given how much verisimilitude goes into the stories featuring actual combat, one starts to wonder if there's an element of WriteWhatYouKnow to this. He certainly wouldn't be the first combat veteran to become a brony as a form of self-therapy.

* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' is infamous for putting its heroines in situations that appeal to one or more of a variety of sexual fetishes (e.g. {{bo|undAndGagged}}ndage, AttackOfThe50FootWhatever, IncredibleShrinkingMan, {{Animorphism}}, and many more) in virtually every episode, despite being aimed at a primary audience of teenage girls.
** Admittedly, these are usually just more fantastic versions of [[DistressedDude James Bondage]]. They ''are'' spies, after all.
** [[FetishFuel Good luck finding a fictional situation that doesn't have a corresponding fetish.]]

* ''Webcomic/CorgiQuest'' exists because the author wanted to combine two of his favorite things: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin corgis]] and ''TabletopGames/DungeonsAndDragons''.

* Someone on the design team for the N64[=/=]PlayStation generation videogame ''WWF Attitude'' was a fan of the MurderousThighs trope. All three women (Wrestling/{{Sable}}, Wrestling/{{Chyna}}, Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}}) in the game used the headscissor, even though none of the three used it outside the game. Also, it could be used as a finishing move in the game when outside it it's generally a resthold. And two of the pre-made create-a-wrestler dialogue sets, "Legs" and "Thunder Thighs", were specifically about this trope.

* ''Property Of Gwen'' and ''[[http://lowroad75.comicgenesis.com/ Lowroad 75]]'' both fit in, as series where the main premise is the size of the main characters' breasts. ''Lowroad 75'' is fanservice to the extreme.
** In fact, the Lowroad artist has admitted, on his Deviantart account, that Lowroad was just an excuse to pander to his fans and/or himself. He's now working on a new comic, which isn't much different, but the main character is at least more realistically proportioned...

** IncestSubtext is also a major element of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. At first it was just something accidental, but when the writers picked up on what the fandom was doing, they started inserting it into the show, with a few FandomNod[=s=] here and there. Canonically, the brothers are both straight, but tolerant/accepting of homosexuality.
*** They even had Dean, in a very meta moment, throw in his two cents on the Wincest idea: "You mean, together ''together''? That's sick."

* Less AuthorAppeal and more Editor Appeal in ''Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun''. Maeno loves Tanuki so much, he makes poor Miyako add them to all her stories.
