* ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}} Source'' has a level set in an office building, with these posters on the walls. The topics are all related to Counterstrike itself, in-jokes for the established community that had played the previous version obsessively for several years. For instance, a picture of a tent, and the slogan "Camping".

* [[http://inspirobot.me/ InspiroBot]] is a website that generates nonsensical often-nonsensical inspirational posters by combining random images with randomly-generated phrase combinations. This often produces {{Ice Cream Koan}}s like "The sun is better than it sounds", "Death ends when freedom begins", and "Never let nobody tell you that you are not in Hell".Hell". There are some legitimately deep/inspirational ones that have come out of it though.

* [[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/377/121shrugofgodcz7.jpg/ ImageShack user jillrg]] has a series of such posters used to showcase various tropes, mostly with images coming from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' [[TropeOverdosed alone.]] Kind of [[{{Irony}} ironic]] considering how TvTropes, as stated above, does not want Demotivators as images.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' featured the "Hang in there!" cat poster. Marge notices that, since the copyright on the poster dates back to 1968, the cat must be long dead, which she thinks makes the poster actually "kind of a downer".
** It also had, in "And Maggie Makes Three", Homer's ''de''motivational plaque: "Don't forget, you're here forever." Homer used pictures of Maggie to turn it into "Do it for her".
