* One of the themes in the ''Aquarion'' franchise, the various titular mecha from ''GenesisOfAquarion'', ''AquarionEvol'', and ''AquarionLogos'' all have the power to grow and create new powers infinitely thanks to their pilots. ''Logos'' takes this a step forward by having a monster representing nothingness [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu being punched to death at the half way point]].

* In TheMovie of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', the final, almighty clash between the title mecha and the copycat villain is so powerful it absorbs the pocket universe around it, zooming out until the scene shows no more than two intertwined, struggling specks in a featureless void, which briefly become an infinity symbol before everything explodes back into epic mecha-anime action. What this is supposed to actually mean is anyone's guess.

Added DiffLines:

* One of {{WebVideo/Phelous}}' reviews has him call out the opening narrator for claiming that this story "is still happening" because "this story is about time, and time has no ending.". However, upon checking the DVD box label, he finds that the film has a running time of "∞", causing him to freak out.

* In ''SpaceRunawayIdeon'', when the Solo crew reaches Earth, they use its most powerful computer to estimate Ide's power output. As they look at the screen, the number on it begins to rise exponentially before being replaced by a single symbol: infinity.

* At this point, Wizards of the Coast doesn't even bother with making numbers in ''MagicTheGathering'' stay finite anymore. But the most annoying of these is Time Vault (which enters play "tapped", or off, does not "untap" or turn on at the start of your turn like normal, and lets you untap it by skipping a turn, so that you can tap it to take another turn) and Voltaic Key (which, for one mana and a tap, lets you untap any artifact). With this combo, [[GameBreaker you have infinite turns]]. And then there's the [[LethalJokeItem Mox Lotus]], a card from ''Unhinged'' that can be tapped for infinity colorless mana.

mana. Setting up infinite combos like this is considered a basic deck build style; they aren't as overpowered as they look at first glance since they take time to set up and are vulnerable to disruption.

* Infinity is used as a substitute for "really, really, fast" in the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "[[CanonDiscontinuity Threshold]]". In stark contrast to the Douglas Adams example above, it is played painfully straight prompting a near meltdown by SFDebris in his review who pointed out that "Infinite" speed is not something you can accelerate towards.

* In an issue of Archie's ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comic, Sonic collects his millionth (or billionth?) ring and has a DisneyAcidSequence that eventually leads to him running around a giant ring shaped like the infinity symbol. You might call it a sort of "[[IncrediblyLamePun Mobius strip]]".

* ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', and its sequel ''InfiniteCrisis'' are prime examples. Somewhat justified in the former where all of the multiverse is being threatened.

* In ''{{Necroscope}}'' Harry Keogh (and his heirs) gain access to the Moebius continuum (with its ability to time travel and teleport) by being able to calculate the infinite length of a moebius strip as a finite number.
