* In a ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' children's novel, ''Literature/SonicTheHedgehogInTheFourthDimension'', an [[ItMakesSenseInContext imaginary dragon creature]] threatens to redo the universe with his allies (the Mythos creatures) and remake it InTheirOwnImage. In the process, he claims he would erase "you [Sonic] and your ''ilk''". Tails responds indignantly with "I'm a ''fox'', not an ''ilk''!" "Ilk" means "kind", as in things of a similar type, and he was threatening to remove all life forms the universe considers normal, or real. This book was made in 1993, [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness before Tails was established to be a genius]].

* Inversion: In Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', Belle chuckles and tells Gaston that he is "positively primeval". Gaston, having no idea what she meant, takes it as a compliment, and thanks her for it. Though being who and what he is, Gaston would probably consider it a compliment either way.

** In another episode, after the group has returned from an investigation at the polar circle, Sheldon is having a phone conversation with his (very religious) mother.
-->'''Sheldon:''' No, mom, the fact that we returned safely is not proof that your prayer group's prayers worked, that's ''post hoc ergo propter hoc''. (Beat) No mom, I'm not sassing you in eskimo language.
