* Between [[TheNicknamer Baal]] and [[PungeonMaster Baphomet]], Creator/KieronGillen's love of puns is already well-catered to in ''Comicbook/TheWickedAndTheDivine''. [[http://maxximoffed.tumblr.com/post/162651101455/the-wicked-the-divine-29 The interstitial for issue 29 however, is groan-worthy.]]

* This infamous exchange in ''Film/BatmanTheMovie'':
-->'''Commissioner Gordon''': Could be any one of them, but which one- Which ''ones''?!\\
'''Batman''': Pretty ''fishy'' what happened to me on that ladder.\\
'''Commissioner Gordon''': You mean where there's a fish, there could be a penguin!\\
'''Robin''': But wait! It happened at ''sea''! See? C for Catwoman!\\
'''Batman''': Yet, an exploding shark ''was pulling my leg!''\\
'''Commissioner Gordon''': The Joker!\\
'''Chief O'Hara''': It all adds up to a sinister riddle... Riddle-''er''. ''Riddler?!''

--> ''Lastly, this chapter's name, Los, is something of a pun. In Spanish 'los' is the masculine form of the word 'those'. In German it can mean -less (as in, the suffix, like helpsLESS), off or loose (as an adjective), or “Go!” (as a command) ... Basically, Jericho was saying “go!” as well as remarking upon his loose (or, more accurately, lack thereof) morals. Though the line “Ich bin Gott...los!” can either mean “I am God. Go!”, or “I am Godless”, or even “I am free from God”, that last one possibly also meaning “I am free of morality” or “I have no morals”. Whereas the spell “Es wurde zeit...los!” can mean “It became timeless” or “It was time, go!” And finally, Jericho's remark “Ich bin los” can be interpreted to mean “I am -less” or “I am off!”, and “I am off” can further be interpreted multiples ways, either as “I'm off [to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz]” or “I'm crazy”. Basically, Jericho just made a storm of puns in only a few words. Nifty, eh?''

* Happens in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' during the episode "The Roots". When the Wattersons see Darwin seemingly feeling homesick, Gumball suggests that they comfort him by using words he can understand. They take this too literal.
-->'''Richard''': Ray there, buddy. What's going prawn?\\
'''Darwin''': What?\\
'''Gumball''': Minnow, you've been giving us a lot of carp about this whole fish thing and I eel you, no trout. I'm your sole brother after all, know what I bream?\\
'''Nicole''': We don't want you to feel orca-ward, we're just trying to help you.\\
'''Darwin''': I literally have no idea what any of you are talking about.\\
'''Gumball''': We just hate to sea you like this. Know what I'm salmon?\\
'''Anais''': We cod do batter if you let us fry. Here's some whale sounds to make you reel at home. ''[Pulls out a portable stereo. Whale sounds play]'' Wow, it's beautiful. If only we could understand what they're saying.\\
'''Richard ''': Majestic!\\
'''Darwin''': Ahh! Look, can you please just get out?! I've haddock up to here—I mean I've had it up to— Ah, just get out!!!

** One of these actually saves what could have been another weak jab in the ''WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror'' segment parodying ''WesternAnimation/ItsTheGreatPumpkinCharlieBrown''. While making the original religious subtext much more explicit in his defense of his belief in the Great Pumpkin, Milhouse suddenly recites a doctored Apostle's Creed that turns into a nonstop (and hilarious) torrent of vegetable puns:

** In "I'm With Cupid", when Apu and Music/EltonJohn watch Homer fight Skywriter Dan at the airport.
-->'''Elton:''' That maniac nearly killed us!
-->'''Apu:''' Shall I... "take you to the pilot"? Hah! [[DontExplainTheJoke You see, because that is]] "your song"...
-->'''Elton:''' I heard you.

* ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' has been leaning this way in its modern English releases, to the point of becoming part of the series' charm. ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' began the trend, and it's been carried on by ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'', the DS remakes of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' and ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'', as well as ''VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesRocketSlime''. All of them contain many, ''many'' puns, particularly when it comes to monster names.

* Brazilian blog/ Website/{{Tumblr}} Microcontoscos made a parody "[[http://microcontoscos.blogspot.com/2010/06/escalacao-das-selecoes-da-copa-2010.html Squads of]] TheWorldCup". Puns on the country name (Cameroon lists shrimp), the country's specialty (Chile lists Chilean wines, Japan includes "Hello Kitty, {{Haik|u}}ai, Tamagochi, Sudoku and Wasabi"), {{Punny Name}}s sometimes based on what the country has (South Korea has "Kim Sam-Sung, Kia, Hy Un-Dai e Kun Gui-Fu") and sometimes not (Slovakia: "Swarowský, Bratislavský, Hondačívik and [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Robotnik]]"), it has everything, including phonetic puns that only work in Portuguese (Germany has "Weissfüder", which in English would be something like "Gofükurself").
