* During the ''16 More Ways'' bonus game in ''VideoGame/SixteenWaysToKillAVampireAtMcdonalds'', one of the ways the hunters kill a vampire is by steaking it... [[spoiler: with the steak from a steak, egg, and cheese bagel. They end up having to explain the pun to the confused vampire, [[PuffOfLogic who dies as soon as he understands it]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/FargoSeasonTwo'': Mike Milligan reminisces in one episode about how the word "revolution" has two meanings: either as an overthrow of another power, or [[FullCircleRevolution a planet making a complete orbit around another celestial object]]. He fails to realize the irony of his storyline: he thinks his revolution against the Gerhardts is the "overthrow" kind, when in reality it's the "full-circle" kind. His success against them just leave him back where he started: as an underappreciated employee for the Kansas City Mafia that's stuck doing a job he hates.

* ''Music/KidsPraise'': It takes them until the ninth album to do this, but they finally make a pun about Psalty tasting terrible because he's got too much salt. The context is that there are [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext cannibals who only eat books]] who want to eat Psalty.

* In ''Videogame/{{Portal}}'', [=GlaDOS=] tells Chell, "When the testing is over, you will be... missed/mist." The subtitles only state "will be missed", as expected. Subtitles have difficulty properly rendering an ambiguous spoken homonym. Considering the flames at the end of the testing course, most of Chell ''will'' be mist, and pretty quickly too. In the event, [[spoiler: Chell is fine because she used portals so that the flames missed her. So [=GlaDOS=] was literally telling the truth!]]

** There was also the episode where Noby asked if alcohol can reproduce, which Doraemon says yes. Unfortunately, Doraemon was talking about salmon, which also happened to be pronounced ''sake'' in Japanese. Presumably why Japanese borrowed the word "salmon".

Hilariously though, Doraemon then proceeds to reproduce alcohol like how salmon reproduce.
* ''Manga/KindaichiCaseFiles'' relies on this as a clue to solve a series of murder in a mansion linked to a deceased musician's poem. During the second murder, [[spoiler:the culprit mistakenly put a spinning top instead of something related to horse like chess piece, due to them sounding similar pronounciation wise (koma). Kindaichi then deduced that the culprit was one of those who came late to the mansion thus not knowing how the poem was written in kanji]].

* Invoked and lampshaded in ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'': When Dragon King of Arms (an ancient vampire) tells Vimes "Pray, enter", Vimes (who hates vampires) thinks to himself that he hears it as "Prey, enter." [[spoiler: Quite fittingly, since the old bloodsucker is [[ChekhovsGunman obsessed with puns]].]]

to:

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'':
** In ''Discworld/ReaperMan'', the wizards try to cure Windle Poons of his sudden undead nature by burying him at a crossroads with a stake through his heart. The wizards get a bit confused and think they have to bury him with a ''steak'' through his heart. Then the Bursar sheepishly admits he couldn't find any steak on such short notice and brought a bundle of slightly wilted celery instead.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Sadie Killer", Sadie [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m5HPZELpgs starts making up a song]] about how much she hates [[BurgerFool her job]], with at one point the lyrics going how she can't be in ''mourning'' in regards to [[spoiler:Lars being stranded on an alien planet]] because she has to work yet another shift in the ''morning'' due to currently being the only employee at her store.
