* A lot of markets have products or brands that are usually impacted by a rivalry between the top two brands with a third (or more) parties serving as the Hufflepuff:
** Dr. Pepper or RC Cola for Coca-Cola vs Pepsi.
** Linux for Windows vs Mac OSX.
** Chrysler for Ford vs General Motors.
** Blackberry or Windows Phones for iPhone vs Andriod.
** Nintendo for Microsoft vs Sony. (Or Atari for Nintendo vs Sega in the early 90s.)
** US Post Office for UPS vs [=FedEx=].

* Many have noted the similarities between Team Valour, Team Mystic and Team Instinct in VideoGame/PokemonGo and Gryffondor, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, right down to the team colours. With most gamers being nerds, that is, instinctive Ravenclaws, it's not surprising that the majority sign on to the mind-focused Team Mystic over the battle-focused Team Valor, and ignore Team Instinct completely.

* {{Rifftrax}} has some fun with this in their riffs of the Harry Potter movies. In particular, Bill gets incensed at the end of the first movie when it looks like Gryffindor came in last place for the House Cup, even behind Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.

* The UNSC Army from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' has only appeared in ''[[VideoGame/HaloReach one]]'' game so far, and their sole major character is Colonel James Ackerson, who only appears in the expanded universe (and even then, [[spoiler:his death takes place in a comic series that was went mostly unread even by story fans]]). They're mentioned to be around during ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'', but we never actually see them. But at least they're better off than the UNSC Air Force, which has even less screen time, to the point where they only have one character who has a name.

* The page image is a Superfluous Elf from ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}''. They started off as a single-panel throwaway gag, but [[ChekovsGunman two books later]] they've organized a group of elves that no longer fit into any other tribe into the [[InsaneClownPosse Juggle Elves.]]

* In the very first episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Professor Oak is supposed to send four trainers off to start their journey, giving them the starter Pokemon Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. One of them is Oak's grandson Gary, and the other is his rival Ash, hero of the series. The other two starting trainers were never shown and only mentioned sporadically throughout the series, the last time of which they inexplicably quit being Pokemon trainers. The only reason they were even in the narrative was for the three starter Pokemon ([[spoiler:Gary having chosen Squirtle]]) to be unavailable for Ash, and Professor Oak had to give him a rowdy Pikachu instead.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s Matoran/Toa come in all sorts of colors and elements, though the primary focus is spent on the main six (Fire, Water, Ice, Air, Earth and Stone) and Light. This results in a whole group of Hufflepuffs including Sonics, Electricity, [[GreenThumb The Green]], Iron, Plasma, Magnetism and Gravity.
