* There are several ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' strips with mimes as [[ButtMonkey Butt Monkeys]]. One installment has John driving down the road while talking to Garfield. He hits a bump which he ignores, and Garfield casually remarks "You just ran over a mime."

* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}:'' Mr. Mine is among the most hated Pokemon among the fanbase. He is often given as a example of a "bad" Gen 1 Pokemon to counter [[NostalgiaFilter genwunners]] (people that dislike Pokemon that came after the orignal 151) that argue the first Generation was the only good/the best Gen. His pre-evo is hated even more.

* There is a suggestion, in Creator/AAPessimal's ''{{Discworld}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6093110/1/Clowning-is-a-Serious-Business Clowning Is A Serious Business]]'' that the reason ''why'' mime artistry is taught at the Fools' Guild, despite its practice being illegal, is to create a hidden élite corps of black-clad Fool/Assassins under the noses of Vetinari, Vimes and the Assassins' Guild. Who would suspect a sad-looking and despised mime artiste of also being a more conventional lethal killer?

* And now, the explanation for the quote at the top of the page: DavidBowie, in the late 1960s, supplemented his then-struggling career as a musician by joining the avant-garde theatre troupe of Lindsay Kemp, who used mime in the service of performance art (as Bowie puts it in the book ''Moonage Daydream'', "sawing away at Genet and re-interpreting episodes from ''The Maids'' and ''Salome''"). Bowie would work his resultant education in acting, stage movement, and characterization into his musical career, and even incorporated mime segments into his Ziggy Stardust-era stage act. As John Peel warned him, however, not all audiences appreciated such touches...
