* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had an early episode "The Naked Now" when Tasha had sex with Data while everyone was intoxicated then at the end insisted it "never happened".

When asked why this particular crew member meant so much to him, he mentions how they'd been intimate.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Episode 105 shows [[ContinuityCavalcade flashbacks to several episodes]] where [[spoiler: [[TheChewToy Stumpy]] was abused or made fun of by his friends.

* Apollo Justice's "I'm fine!" catchphrase in the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' series gets its fair share of these, the first being the FlashbackToCatchphrase in "Dual Destinies" which reveals that Apollo and his childhood friend used to say it to convince themselves they were okay after their parents died, and again in "Spirit of Justice" where Trucy tries adopting it after her murder accusation but is very clearly being a StepfordSmiler.



* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In "Ponyville Confidential", the Cutie Mark Crusaders' first attempt at journalism for the ''Foal Free Press'' ends with them in embarrassing situations; Scootaloo falls into a mud puddle, Sweetie Belle models a gaudy outfit, and Apple Bloom finds her baby pictures. Later on, it's revealed that Featherweight secretly took photographs of these moments, and Diamond Tiara blackmails them for trying to back out of writing hurtful gossip by threatening to publish them in the paper if they do.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' features a gag early on where examining Sans' book reveals that it's a joke book hidden in a quantum physics book, with a joke book inside the quantum physics book, with a quantum physics book behind that joke book... At first it seems absurd, but later we begin to discover that Sans is actually a time traveller.

After Tim's brain injury Styx grows older and cares for his now mentally impaired brother with their roles reversed.

* The fifth season of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' introduced the Daughters of Aku, seven assassins trained from birth to believe Aku is a benevolent being and Jack is a menace that must be disposed of. This calls back to the first seasons "Aku's Fairy Tales" where Aku himself tried to brainwash children into thinking the same thing, but failed. Here we see the successful results of that and it's not pretty.
