* Parodied in ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'', where a water demon gives a woodcutter a gold axe to replace a lost iron axe. The woodcutter freezes to death in the winter because gold is too soft to cut firewood with. That's what you get for annoying water demons by dropping things in their lakes.

* One of the Gag Reels of ''BlazBlueChronoPhantasma'' has Kokonoe sending Litchi, Tager and Roy Carmine to get her a rare plant known as the Blue Silver Vine. The place where the plant grows is protected by [[OldMaster Jubei]] and a young Taokaka. After a brief scuffle, Tager is thrown into the nearby hot spring and a magical witch (played by Trinity Glassfille) comes out asking if they dropped the Silver Golden Tager (which Roy points out looks more black than silver), or the [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Golden Golden Tager]]. When told they dropped a "normal Tager" the witch rewards them with both the silver and golden golden Tagers... but doesn't give them back the normal one. Taokaka gets excited by the idea of getting a shiny golden something that she throws ''Jubei'' to the spring. The witch asks if she dropped a silver or golden Jubei doll, [[CloudCuckoolander Tao being Tao]], she claims she lost the golden one and gets nothing. Roy then inadvertedly insults the witch, who pushes him into the spring, emerging soon after to ask Litchi if she dropped a silver or golden [[spoiler:Arakune]] Litchi tells that it was ''her'' who dropped Roy and she wants him back. The witch complies and gives her back the normal [[spoiler:Arakune, who she stills keeps calling Roy]]. Finally, they see the Blue Silver Vine being eaten by Taokaka and they break into a scuffle, throwing it into the spring. The witch emerges to ask them if they dropped a gold or silver [[spoiler: ''kiwi'']]. Tao screws things up again by claiming they dropped the golden one. [[spoiler:Luckily, Arakune had eaten some of the vine while in the pond and they can get it from his body. Kokonoe somehow doesn't find strange that Tager is golden or that Roy has become an EldritchAbomination]].

* {{Toku}} example: In ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'', the main objects of AppliedPhlebotinum are [[{{Magitek}} cell phones that extend into magic wands]]. [[TheHero Kai]] drops his into a spring while sparring with [[TheObiWan Hikaru]]. The Goddess of the Mini-Spring lets him play Honest Phone, offering a silver version of his phone or a golden version of his mentor's. He's ''not'' honest and takes the gold one, and it works great for a time... until a misspoken spell turns him into a giant spider monster, and then the phone stops working. He can't change back until he learns his lesson.
