** Film/{{Deadpool|2016}} describes Professor X as a "bald, Heaven's Gate-looking motherfucker", but then later asks whether the Professor is "Stewart or [=McAvoy=]".

* In ''VideoGame/SpongeBobSquarePantsBattleForBikiniBottom'', Patrick's Dream consists of a black void with him under a spotlight, and he just gives you a Golden Spatula when you talk to him with no strings attached. While this is a MythologyGag to the show, it is also a reference to the original plan for Patrick's Dream: A LevelAte that is DummiedOut in some versions of the game. The final version of the level can be seen as SelfDeprecation on the developer's part for not completing the level.
