* I dunno wether this should be listed in Abandonware or Emulation or Digital Piracy or whatever, but what happens in the event that a game formerly offered on a Console-based Digital Distribution system(Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network, Wii VC/WiiWare) ceases to be offered. Abandonware is pretty much a PC-exclusive domain, and this isn't a media-based thing that can be bought/sold on a secondary market... So what happens here?

* Ok, from chapter 247 of MahouSenseiNegima (FRAKKING ENORMOUS SPOILERS): [[spoiler: Do we have something for when one character absorbs the power of another character and uses it against them, like what Negi does with Jack's attack? The closest I could find was PlayingTennisWithTheBoss, but that's more reflecting an attack back as opposed to sucking power out of an opponent.]]

* I see this a LOT in [[TheSilentAgeOfAnimation silent-era cartoons]]. A character looks at something, and a series of dotted lines make a pathway to what he's looking at. I also saw it once in a Chuck Jones WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry short.

** In {{Suits}}, Louis Litt is the firm's ButtMonkey, and only became Named Partner because he blackmailed Harvey and Jessica. But he also works insanely long hours, maintains the internal bylaws, has shown fanatical loyalty to the firm, plays DrillSeargeantNasty to ALL the associates at once, and is a valued expert at some [[BoringButPractical vital branches of law]]. Frankly, he should've had his name on the door before Harvey.
** In HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire, Harry is not old enough to enter the Tri-Wizard tournament, and doesn't even try to enter, someone else puts his name in the cup as part of an elaborate scheme, but he ends up actually WINNING the tournament, and going above and beyond the call of duty.

* The way the SilverAge Green Lantern kept justifying his failures through some nonsenical invocation of his WeaksauceWeakness to yellow, like saying that the enemy contains a yellow compound, or that there is some "invisible yellow" or that the monster is giving off "infra-yellow" radiation.
