* In {{Manga/Bakuon}}, there is the first flashback of Rin's childhood, where it seems that her father died after an accident. Then, in present day, he's very fine and mocking Rin's Katana motorcycle (and he's driving the model that her own daughter got by writing an essay when he was in the hospital!).

** Like in [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BaitAndSwitch this strip]] where the heroes are thought dead but then it's revealed the dead bodies were someone else's.
** Or when YouMustBeThisTallToRide causes the hero to resort to [[http://www.loadingartist.com/comic/vomitron/ unexpected measures]].
** When commenting on the [[http://www.loadingartist.com/comic/mankind-is-magnificent/ advancements in technology]].
** When oogling his [[http://www.loadingartist.com/comic/business-plan/ money bags]] that turn out to be dummies.
** When a [[http://www.loadingartist.com/comic/life-support/ life support system]] is confused with a laptop.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'': In Slappy Squirrel's debut cartoon, "Slappy Goes Walnuts", Doug the Dog sets out a xylophone for Slappy to play that's set to explode when she hits a specific note. Slappy decides to play "Those Endearing Young Charms", and the viewer is set to believe she'll keep hitting the wrong note, which is [[XylophoneGag a joke that's been done to death]] in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' franchise. The thing is, she actually ''does'' hit the correct note, and the explosion ends up going off on Doug the Dog.
-->'''Slappy:''' [[LampshadeHanging Old gag, new twist]].

** One Hip Hippos sketch has the hippos in an American Gladiator spoof. After a number of contests with an athletic duo, the score is tied (the hippos' lack of athletic ability in some events made up for by their bulk giving them unexpected advantages in other events). The final tiebreaking event is to eat their way across a swimming pool full of beans and hot dogs. Easy hippo win, right? Their opponents sure think so and are ready to throw in the towel, but decide to give it a shot anyway. [[spoiler:And the human opponents win easily, when the hippos deliberately throw the event. They're the ''[[{{Hipster}} Hip]]'' Hippos, remember? They'd never eat something as common as beans and hot dogs.]]
