* ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'': In Episode 13, the Meekrob data crystal leading to [[LostSuperweapon Project Domination]] is [[AccidentallyBrokeTheMacGuffin shattered]] during the fight over it, leaving both Dib's team and each of the Irken factions in possession of a piece. But it doesn't work unless its complete, so no one's going after the weapon any time soon.
