* An episode of ''Series/{{Benson}}'' had [[GrimReaper Death]] taking part in a game of TrivialPursuit. ''Every'' question he got had some relation to death -- the name of Jerry Garcia's band, for instance. Benson accused him of cheating, but he denied it, saying, "You've heard it said, 'He cheated Death," but no one has ever said, 'Death cheated ''him''!'"

* Patrick Bateman fills in a crossword with some rather... sketchy answers in ''AmericanPsycho''. Of course, with the UnreliableNarrator and frequent hallucinations it's entirely possible they were the right answers, or at least that he thought they were.

* ''DarkAngel'': Max, due to having cat DNA, has periods of heightened sex drive (she is effectively "in heat").

* One episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'' had O'Neill doing a crossword after downloading the Ancient database into his head. (Again.) As he waits for his subconcious to gain access to the knowledge -- including where the MacGuffin they need is -- Dr Jackson notices he's been unconciously filling in answers in Ancient, and theorises that these are clues to where they need to go. (He's right.) Carter remains skeptical because he also [[BunnyEarsLawyer filled in 'celestial body' as 'Uma Thurman']].

In fiction, however, Scrabble tiles are magic [[InkBlotTest Rorschach's Ink Blot]] style windows to the soul. If we see characters playing a word game, then either the word being played, the ''only'' word the character can make, or ''every'' word on the board will somehow relate to things that are on their mind. Alternatively the words will {{foreshadow}} events they are unaware of. The game in question [[SmallReferencePools will usually be Scrabble]], but not necessarily - other games that can be used include [[CrosswordPuzzle crosswords]], [[SignificantAnagram anagrams]], ''{{Countdown}}'', or any other word game.
