* Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone have a few of these.
** "Derp" was apparently a nonsense word invented on the set of ''Film/{{Baseketball}}'' to exemplify stupid humor. It has been carried over to WesternAnimation/SouthPark in several forms, with no in-show explanation or link between them. Once there was a substitute school chef named "Mr. Derp" who did stupid physical gags; another time there was a Rob Schneider movie trailer (as part of a running gag of successively stupider movie trailers) whose narration consisted almost entirely of nonsensical permutations of the word "Derp".
** A more unusual example: Trey & Matt wrote the gag song "Montage" for an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark,'' but the same song was used in their completely unrelated movie ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice''.
** The DVDA (Trey & Matt's band) song "Now You're A Man", recorded for the movie ''Film/{{Orgazmo}}'' was later used as the closing credits of a WesternAnimation/SouthPark episode.

* It seems Music/RhapsodyOfFire say "mighty" at least once a song, on their older albums at least. "Holy" is also an unusually common adjective ("unholy" is frequent too for that matter).
