* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series generally avoids using this trope, with most named in-universe products being wholly original. However, in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'', a brand of dolls named "[[Franchise/HelloKitty Hi Skitty]]" is brought up a few times.

* In ''Film/ExMachina'', Blue Book is pretty much Google in all but name. It even ''sounds'' like "Google" when they say it quickly.

Rick and Morty movie/song examples
Added DiffLines:
* RickAndMorty do it with movies on a regular basis: ** In "Total Rickall," Rick is remembering a barbecue he hosted. He mentions that he's like TomCruise in "Cuisine" instead of {{Cocktail}}. Played with because he keeps asking if "Cuisine" is the right name, though he never gets an answer. ** In "Auto Erotic Assimilation", when Morty and Summer are scared of being killed by an advancing mob, they chant "there's no place like home" from [[TheWizardOfOz "the Dorothy and the tiny people movie."]] ** "Ricksy Business" contains this exchange alluding to Music/LittleRichard and the opening line to "Tutti Fruity": -->'''Rick:''' It's like that old song, "blomp blomp-a noop noop a-noop noop noop". You guys know that song? From Tiny Rogerts? You never heard of it? You know, the black effeminate guy from the '50s? No-nobody? A-all right, whatever.

** Ironically the movie was shot in a converted Wendy's. *** Later, it is shown that Cleo has a [=McDonalds=] operations manual in his possession, which he [[ImplausibleDeniability quickly puts away]]. * In ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'', Brawndo is largely a stand-in for Gatorade. The main character, who's from the present day, even mentions that it "tastes just like Gatorade". In a bizarre twist, Brawndo [[{{Defictionalization}} became a drink]] in RealLife - and is a citrus-flavored energy drink, like Monster and Amp, rather than a sports drink like Gatorade. ** Legend has it they wanted to use Gatorade, but Gatorade refused. Several other real companies agreed to allow their names to be used, even though they were used in a disrespectful way (Fuddruckers, Costco, Starbucks, Carl's Jr.).

added Super Hang On
Added DiffLines:
* ''VideoGame/SuperHangOn'' featured real-world brand names on billboards in the game in its original arcade iteration. However, when released on the Sega Genesis, the names were changed. "Bridgestone" became "Dridalstone", "Marlboro" became "Morobare", and "NGK Spark Plugs" became "NOK Spark Plugs", to name a few.
