** Especially noticeable with [[StalkerWithACrush Gauron]], who actually had [[WifeHusbandry two beautiful girls]] who were desperately in love with him, and [[LoveMartyr whose existence revolved around him]]. Did he care? No. He just can't seem to forget that [[{{Shotacon}} beautiful and emotionless boy]] he saw [[LoveAtFirstSight once upon a time]], who currently hates him with a passion and loves to beat the shit out of him.

* In ''Literature/TheAmazingDaysOfAbbyHayes,'' Laurie follows an extremely strict diet, avoiding pretty much everything that isn't fresh, natural, or organic, which means that she eats practically nothing but nuts, crackers and seeds. Sticking to her diet isn't a problem for ''her,'' but she also imposes it on her five-year-old daughter Wynter, who naturally takes every opportunity she sees to eat foods like hot dogs, ice cream, candy and chocolate.

* In ''Literature/TheHobbit'', Gandalf and Beorn warn Bilbo and the dwarves ''many'' times to stay on the path in Mirkwood, emphasizing that it's the only safe place there. Or rather, ''safest''. Near the end of the long and frightening trip through, exhausted and low on supplies, they spot the wood elves' feasting off the path, and despite Thorin clearly remembering the warning, they decide to approach and beg for food. Unfortunately, true to Gandalf's warning, they get lost, are quickly ambushed by the Spiders, and even after escaping, the wood elves take them prisoner. (Not that being captured was a bad thing at this time.)

* Somewhat subverted in one series of ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' strips. The sorceress She Who Must Be Obeyed had obtained a written copy of That Which Man Is Not Meant to Know, and she is smart enough ''not'' to read it, because she realizes that it's obviously dangerous if no-one should know it. [[spoiler: However, Piffany assures her that only ''men'' are not meant to know it; women can safely read it, because it's something that they know already. When she reads it [[BrownNote not revealing it to the readers]], the fact that such a secret would be so devastating to men almost makes her bust a gut laughing.]]

* Symbolically invoked in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. When [[spoiler: Ellen]] is trying to convince [[spoiler: Boomer]] that the ''Final Five'' had the right idea, [[spoiler: she]] is eating from a bowl of apples. At some point, [[spoiler: she]] offers one of them to [[spoiler: Boomer]] but [[spoiler: Boomer]] refuses, symbolising that [[spoiler: she]] prefers to remain on [[spoiler: Cavil]]'s side.

* The Index of Prohibited Books created by the Roman Catholic Church during the Renaissance. Something on this list will be almost guaranteed to be a bestseller. Most of them are pretty boring though, prohibited for some obscure technicality.

Most of them are pretty boring though, prohibited for some obscure technicality. Probably the most famous is the ''Literature/MalleusMaleficarum'', which got so famous that many people still think it was endorsed by the Inquisition rather than condemned.
