* Chapter 59 of ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' is called "The Scaries Chapter Yet". It's only scary if you think the {{Cut and Paste Translation}} of FourKidsEntertainment are frightening instead of silly. Further cementing this trope is that the chapter was written as the GrandFinale of a special week of horror-story chapters in the lead-up to Halloween.

* "Series/ThisMorningWithRichardNotJudy": This trope was used in the weekly "Richard Herring's Food and Milk" segment of the show where Richard Herring would try an unusual milk such as shrew, American Beaver or the milk of human kindness. Once the milk that Richard would be sampling was named, a documentary style clip was played to illustrate, over which stock horror music was played.
