* The horse armor in ''VideoGame/DLCQuest'' is a reference to the infamous horse armor DLC for ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''; buying it has no in-game effect. [[spoiler:Except you need it to complete the game; your horse tries to rescue you in the final battle, and if you didn't buy the armor, the final boss will kill it and you in a single hit.]]

** While recapturing an old fortress, Xykon pretends to make a HeelFaceTurn, only to transform an angelic warrior into a zombie and rave about how he'd [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0193.html never thought of using flying zombies before.]] A few hundred strips later, Xykon rides a zombie dragon into battle; Roy [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0441.html climbs onto the dragon and decapitates it]], but this doesn't accomplish much because it's a telepathically-controlled zombie. [[spoiler:Roy ends up dying because Xykon doesn't even need the dragon to fly, so he just blasts Roy and the dragon corpse out of the sky.]]

* In ''Webcomic/{{OrderOfTheStick}}, Vaarsuvius frequently uses Explosive Runes to play pranks on people V doesn't like (mostly [[HeroicComedicSociopath Belkar]] and [[KnightTemplar Miko]]. (Explosive Runes places words on an object that explode when read.) Come strip 659, [[spoiler:V formulates a plan to throw [[BigBad Xykon's]] [[SoulJar phylactery]] into a rift. Xykon attempts to retrieve the phylactery, but [[NiceJobFixingItVillain thanks to one of Xykon's earlier lectures]], V is more willing to use spells that do not directly strike at the enemy, and thus enchanted the phylactery with Explosive Runes. The explosion almost throws the phylactery into the rift anyway.]]

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', the girls are relaxing in a hot spring when they learn that the guys are already there (it's a unisex pool). Lucy and Wendy freak out, but Natsu and Grey point out that they've [[ClothingDamage seen the]] [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl girls naked]] [[RunningGag so many times]] that the novelty has worn off. Later, an enemy has Natsu pinned down and is using his {{Invisibility}} magic to [[PowerPerversionPotential make Lucy's clothes disappear]] in order to embarrass Natsu. This complete backfires since Natsu isn't the least bit embarrassed, but the enemy mage ''is''

** In another episode, the group visits the GreatBigLibraryOfEverything because Nyarko has to return an overdue book, but they get sidetracked when two criminals ransack the place looking for a particular book. Trying to be GenreSavvy, Mahiro guesses that Nyarko's overdue book is what they were after, but it turns out that this time ''[[NotSoAboveItAll he's]]'' the one responsible, due to a copy of "[[LightNovel/HeavensMemoPad Malign God's Memo Pad]]" he idly picked up during their visit and accidentally pocketed. Nyarko even complains about how unfair it was for him to assume that she's always responsible for these things.
