Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Episodes penned by George R.R. Martin often feature subtle exposition of location and travel, such as Melisandre passing King's Landing in "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" because the Blackwater Rush is the fastest route back to Dragonstone, and Roose Bolton mentioning smuggling himself to account for bypassing Moat Cailin in "The Lion and the Rose". Contrast this with Robb campaigning somewhere vague in Season 2 and the Karstarks marching home regardless of Moat Cailin in Season 3.
** Director Neil Marshall loves ArrowsOnFire and MadeOfPlasticine mooks that can feel slightly out of place with the rest of the series.

** We also have former Wizards of the Coast employee Monte Cook, creator of the game's 3rd Edition and a strong hand in creating 5th Edition too. Monte really, ''really'' believed in LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards and went to great lengths to enforce it in all the wrong ways. For years, martial classes were either built on poorly conceived rules (3E Monks), ridiculously generic and boring to play (3E Fighters), or just straight up sucked (3.5E Samurai). Caster classes on the other hand enjoyed highly overpowered spell lists granting them in unprecedented breadth of ability plus new-fangled metamagic feats to back them up; by mid-level a lone, half-competently played Druid or Cleric was probably equal to ''three'' well-played martial PCs of the same level. And don't get us started on [[CreatorsPet Wizards]], the preferred class of Monte and people who hated losing in 3.5E, utterly dominant at all levels and pillars of play (except being perhaps a tad weak at 1st level).

** As well as this, several characters across his works espouse the idea that {{revenge}} is a 'sucker's game' (e.g., David Xanatos from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Flint 'Sandman' Marko from ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', LexLuthor from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''). As well as this, characters in those same works that spend their lives pursuing revenge tend to be miserable for it.

* Creator/TerryPratchett has copious amounts of LampshadeHanging, {{Stealth Pun}}s, and benign contempt for the common man.[[note]]Also, footnotes.[[/note]]

* Creator/TerryPratchett has copious amounts of LampshadeHanging, {{Stealth Pun}}s, jokes that follow a certain specific structure (it'd probably be easier to go to his quote page than try to describe it), and benign contempt for the common man.[[note]]Also, footnotes.[[/note]]

* Music/DavidBowie loves writing and singing about apocalypses, dystopias, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking cocaine]]. And science fiction/space-inspired subject matter shows up so often in his work that it became the basis for an article in ''TheOnion'', "[[http://www.theonion.com/articles/nasa-launches-david-bowie-concept-mission%2C2907/ NASA Launches David Bowie Concept Mission]]".

* Creator/BruceCoville has specifically 2-inches-tall people as a recurring pattern. ''The Monsters of Morley Manor''? Two inches tall. Of the ''Literature/RodAlbrightAlienAdventures'' books, the kids in ''I Left My Sneakers in Dimension X'' are described to be two inches tall compared to the monster Smorkus Flinders, if he was human size; and the aliens in ''Aliens Stole My Homework'' are two inches tall. In later sequels, it's revealed the aliens make themselves and their ship that small when they fly through space basically inexplicably. The sequel to ''Literature/IWasASixthGradeAlien'' includes the protagonist and his teacher subjected to a shrink ray that makes them two inches tall, at which point they are put inside a desk. In the third book, the classroom's two-inch tall hamsters turn out to be evil.
