* In ''WesternAnimation/WreckItRalph'', when Ralph is in King Candy's palace, he comments that it's [[PinkIsFeminine oddly pink for a male character]]. King Candy insists that it's clearly ''salmon''. [[spoiler: There's a reason it's so pink and so non-fitting to King Candy- he's a usurper who hijacked the game after causing his own to crash due to his [[AttentionWhore desire for the spotlight]]. The castle's original owner was Princess Vanellope Von Schweetz.]]

* 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 completely backfires since Natsu isn't the least bit embarrassed, but the enemy mage ''is''

* You would think Elena's botched magical surgery on Taizou would be just one of the many gags that pepper ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel''. As it turns out, [[spoiler: having your heart on the wrong side of your body is exactly the kind of thing that would win you a few more minutes by confusing your would-be killers, [[BigDamnHeroes allowing help to arrive just in the nick of time]].]]

* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' had a great Chekhov's Gag in the episode "The Waitress is Getting Married." Charlie knocked a hornets' nest down in the bar and put it in a box so that he could kill them with smoke and get whatever hornets make (hornets make nothing at all). He drew an "H" on the box and set it aside for later. When he learned that his obsession, the waitress at a coffee shop, was getting married, he went to give him a congratulatory gift. After Charlie learned that the guy was just marrying the waitress so he could dump her and get revenge for being treated badly in high school, Charlie lets him have the gift anyway and walks off. In the shot, we can see an "H" drawn on the front of the box.

* 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.]]
