* A rather unfortunate use of RapeByProxy was used as an excuse for the ComicBook/New52 Tim Drake (Red Robin) and Cassandra Sandsmark (Wonder Girl) to start a relationship when the ComicBook/New52 Teen Titans author revealed that evidently Tim, Cassie and Kiran (Solstice) [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization enjoyed being raped]] by Trigon when he was possessing Tim. Note that prior to Flashpoint [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Tim]] turned down sex with his various girlfriends on multiple occasions and was canonically a virgin due to his complete non desire for casual or emotionally compromised sex, wanting to be in a very serious and committed relationship before even considering it.

* The original ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' was this, the plot being that the characters were toys being played with by their owner (ie. Master Hand), which was just an excuse to have "your favorite Nintendo characters duke it out".

* The original ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' was this, the plot being that the characters were toys being played with by their owner (ie. Master Hand), which was just an excuse to have "your favorite Nintendo characters duke it out". ''Melee'' hints at this vaguely (with the dolls replaced with trophies), along with no plot for its Adventure Mode other than "brawl your way through Nintendo worlds and fight Bowser at the end". ''Brawl'' averted this with its own Adventure Mode, ''VideoGame/TheSubspaceEmissary'', only for ''[=3DS/Wii U=]'' to return to the ExcusePlot format, this time being "characters from various worlds do battle/are invited to a tournament" as told through its trailers.

** With each successive major update, the absurd, tongue-in-cheek backstory of the game has become more elaborate. (The producers note that it's developed the most detailed story of any Creator/{{Valve}} franchise, even more than the plot-oriented ''VideoGame/HalfLife''.) It now involves attempts at achieving {{Immortality}} through technological advancements, family feuds over inheritance, and a {{Unobtainium mineral element with fantastic properties}} capable of making Australia into the world's dominant power. That, however, is all on the ''[=TF2=]'' website. Load up the game and it's just "work with your teammates, achieve your objectives, shoot everyone dressed in the other color."

--->"Nine mercenaries have come together for a job. It's the middle-ish part of a century a lot like the one we just had. A simpler time. There are three TV stations, one phone company, and two holding corporations that secretly control every government on the planet. Each corporation administers its half of the world with a multi-disciplined army of paper pushers. For any problem lacking an obvious bureaucratic solution, mercenaries like these are contracted to address the situation through a massive application of force."

* The plot of ''VisualNovel/OtomeWaBokuNiKoishiteru'' is kickstarted by the death of the main characther's grandfather and how the only way he will become chairman of the school is dressed in drag. Don't question how the criteria for chairman has a paradoxical clause that they must be an alumni and the ethical questions that follow, all that matters is that you get a Harem disguised as Yuri.

* The prologue to the Flash game [[RobotWantsSeries Robot Wants Puppy]] in its entirety: "In Zeta Sector, Morgox the Unborn has conquered all of civilization and spread his dictatorship to every corner of the galaxy, ruling with an iron tentacle. / But on Delos IV, a rebellion is forming. Ordinary people are rising up to stand against tyranny. Meeting by cover of night, they plot to cripple Morgox's fleet from within. The attack is set in motion simultaneously by confederates working in stardocks across the sector... / Meanwhile, in a completely different galaxy, thousands of light years away, Robot wants puppy. / By the way, his tentacles are literally iron. That wasn't some kind of metaphor."
