* Three months are the end of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Volume 3, BlackComedy jokes about [[spoiler:Yang [[AnArmAndALeg losing an arm]]]] are more likely to induce groaning than laughter due to sheer overuse.

* ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge:'' Eventually, David Willis got fed up of people using the ButForMeItWasTuesday meme all the time, and set the filter to block any use of the word Tuesday.

* In an early episode of ''Series/{{Community}}'' Jeff takes a pottery class. One of first rules the teacher imposes is that due to somebody in class ''always'' referencing the scene from ''Film/{{Ghost}}'', nobody is allowed to due it anymore. Likewise, a similar gag happens at the end of the episode's B-plot, where Shirley and Pierce's boating class instructor reveals nobody is allowed to go to the mast and yell out "I'm the king of the world!" from ''[[Film/Titanic1997 Titanic]]''.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has fans waiting for Hoenn remakes. People make Hoenn "confirmed" because of many things, some making sense, some being utter nonsense.
** [[http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-video-games/pokemon-omega-ruby-and-pokemon-alpha-sapphire/ With the announcement of the so-awaited remakes]], not even two months gone by for [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/751/330/5f6.gif this picture in particular]] getting on every fan's nerves. Suffice to say "old news" is the most polite response one will get.
** According to [[WebSite/SmogonUniversity Smogon]], [[http://www.smogon.com/bw/pokemon/magikarp Magikarp jokes are this]].

** Referencing it on [=SlenderNation=] [[IShallTauntYou will get you mocked]]. [[ToThePain Mercilessly.]]
** The meme got a temporary new lease on life with the game "Slender", which had an unlockable [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejatl89mf5w&feature=related "$20 Mode"]]. Due to copyright concerns, the creator of the game removed the mode from the renamed "Slender: The Eight Pages".



** ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' also referenced it by having a bored Vegeta say the line (and this is after he ended up having his scouter on upside down and reading the power level as 1006, leading to Goku kicking Nappa's ass) and Nappa being disappointed by it. A later video celebrating Team Four Star's YouTube account passing 9000 subscribers did it again, with Vegeta using the original "Over ''8000''" line with an annoyed Nappa telling him he didn't do it right.

* An issue of ''[[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic Universe]]'' has a very annoyed Silver telling OriginalCharacter Gold the Tenrac that he's "getting really sick of people saying "It's No Use"". In context, it seemed that ''everyone'' was using that phrase to tell Silver to give up; readers have also taken it as a stealth TakeThat towards Silver's repeated phrase from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006''

--> '''Yahtzee:''' ''Castlevania: Lords of Shadow'' contains a ''Portal'' reference. That is literally all you need to know. It's attempting to jump on a bandwagon so late that the band has completed three sell-out world tours and sold their wagon to a scrap dealer. It's not even a clever reference, a note found on a dead character ends with the words "the cake is a lie". There's no contextual sense, it's just thrown in there like a random zombie wearing Groucho Marx glasses. [...] If a game has a ''Portal'' reference, whatever purpose it serves, it tells you everything you need to know about the absolute wankers who had creative control of the thing.
