* In ''Film/BedtimeStories'', a man named Skeeter (the main character) finds out that the bedtime stories that he and two kids he's babysitting tell at night keep coming true. In one story, the six-year-old Patrick makes the main character of the story catch on fire. Skeeter worries that the incinerated character represents him (probably because his name, Skeeto, was similar to his own name) and becomes paranoid that he's going to catch fire. When listening to the car radio, all the songs have fire-related lyrics (Burn Baby Burn, I'm on Fire, etc).



* From ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' we have the "relationship" between the Iron Isles, the Riverlands and the North. Before House Hoare took it upon themselves to try their hand at colonial expansion, conquering and ''ruling'' other lands was anathema to the [[RapePillageAndBurn Ironborn]] [[{{Pirate}} ethos]] (it technically still is). And, doing so wasn't at all popular at the time they ruled the Ironborn and their colonies, for all it has definately gained the [[NostalgiaFilter rosy glow of nostalgia]] by the start of the series. The Ironborn just can't get over the their lost holdings and have constantly tried to relive those GloryDays through repeated rebellions and invasion attempts against the Seven Kingdoms since then. They usually don't work at all well, but they still keep trying every time they think they spot a chance.

* Used in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. The Ed's, Kevin, Rolf, and Johnny all make a cold turkey bet, each ponying up 25 cents as the bet. Ed can't have gravy, Double D can't use any big words, Eddy can't be loud, Rolf must give up meat, Johnny can't talk to plank, and Kevin (the first to lose) can't call the Eds dorks. After Eddy spends most of the episode Invoking the trope towards everyone else, the eventual winner is [[spoiler:Ed. After falling into a barrel of gravy, Eddy LOUDLY declares his victory... until he finds out Ed fell into a barrel of butterscotch pudding, which he's allergic to. Ed gets the money and spends it on, you guessed it, gravy]].
