* In an arguably original take on the ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' franchise, the ''WebVideo/WisecrackEdition'' video "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LueVmefY_Kg The Philosophy of Dark Souls]]" views the philosophical implications of ''Dark Souls'' (and by extension ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' and ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'') through the lens of psychologist ''UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud''.
--> '''Jared:''' ''Dark Souls'' is about wanting to climb back into your mom's womb, getting your dick cut off and being endlessly miserable. I am completely serious about this. I'm Jared and welcome to this Wisecrack Edition on the ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' series.
** The beginning of ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsI'' beginning with a symbolic birthing scene, plunging into a tonic-crevice deep within the Earth into a pit where "things" are born, but only a few (the [[Characters/DarkSoulsMainCharactersAndLords Old Gods]]) developing names and identities via the Lord Souls. The beginning of ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' has the protagonist exit an underground labyrinth and breaching the surface through a yonic-shaped crevice.
** [[OedipusComplex Themes of openings and other tonic imagery (symbolic of the mother) being blocked by a masculine figure]] with [[PhallicWeapon phallic weapons]] that seek to stop your progress (symbolic of the father). This also applies to the protagonist needing to enter through deep dark caves for both progress and fulfillment in the story, symbolic of the [[FreudianExcuse Freudian desire]] to return to the womb.
** VaginaDentata symbolically represented in Chaos Witch Quelaag and Mytha, the Baneful Queen, attributing to themes of metaphorical castration.
** Kilns, thrones and the First Flame representing the womb, fighting metaphorical fathers as to return to this metaphorical womb and finally finding satisfaction.

* ''{{Manga/Gate}}'': The "Men in Green" (Japanese soldiers) achieve worldwide (the world on the other side of the gate) fame when they use a man-portable rocket launcher to seriously wound a giant dragon, viewing it at some sort of PhallicWeapon activated by the magic phrase "Backblast... clear!". And then the S&M-themed dark elves get ahold of some...

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' has a Cybertronian psychologist, Rung. In issue 28, Megatron is sent to see him, leading to this gem:
-->'''Megatron''': Enough's enough. Two hours listening to you tell my why I used to wear a giant weapon on my arm. I hate to disappoint you, Rung, but sometimes a fusion cannon is just a fusion cannon.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': [[invoked]] Inverted in "Phantasms", when Data recreates Dr. Freud in the holodeck with the hope of interpreting the disturbing images generated by his dream program. Freud, of course, proceeds to assume it's all about Data's issues with his mother and his sexuality, neither of which he has, because he's an android.

He's also been sexually active, though with women only.[[/note]]

* Humanity's obsession with sex is implicitly discussed in Gary Gulman's bit about how the birth control pill is referred to as "the pill".
-->There are a lot of pills out there, but that's ''the'' pill. There's a pill that keeps you from getting ''polio''. That's not the pill.

When characters in story think that any kind of long thin shape is a symbolic penis, or that any hole that is oval is a symbolic vagina, you've got Freud Was Right in play. Obsession with sex is one of the core aspects of this trope when it's {{lampshade|Hanging}}d.

Some say Freud was right about [[EveryoneIsBi something else]], too. Not to be confused with AllPsychologyIsFreudian and EverybodyHasLotsOfSex. Frequently leads to DoubleEntendre and AccidentalInnuendo.
