* In the WesternAnimation/LooneyToons short "Transylvania 6-5000", Count Bloodcount could change between his bat and vampire forms by saying "Hocus Pocus!" and "Abracadabra!". WesternAnimation/BugsBunny [[HoistByTheirOwnPetard uses this against him]], first by mangling the transformation phases ("Hocus-Cadabra!" and "Abraca-Pocus"), then using InherentlyFunnyWords ("Newport News" and "Walla-Walla, Washington!")

* Parodied in ''Anime/{{Endride}}''. When Shun arrives in Endora and discovers he has a [[SpontaneousWeaponCreation Warp Relic]], he immediately names it [[{{Nerd}} Excalibur]] and tries to call it forth like he's in a henshin scene, even though that's not how summoning Warp Relics works. Emilio immediately gets on his case because the shouting does nothing and only calls attention to them as they try to escape.
