Added DiffLines:

* The celestial beings of ''Series/TheGoodPlace'' intake these sort of ingredients to highlight their otherworldliness. At one point a Bad Place employee is seen smoking ''the concept of time'' instead of cocaine, and the Judge likes to season burritos with ''envy''.
-->'''Judge''': Really makes it pop.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TokyoDark'' character Crow is upfront about the ''physical'' goods he'll accept in trade for something else. The ''metaphysical'' goods? Not so much. One girl gave him a photo of her deceased father, and weeks later realized she had forgotten her father's face entirely...[[TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday but by then, it was too late]]. Crow does not accept refunds.

** Back when they were just Kid Loki in Journey Into Mystery, Nightmare forges a crown of fear with similar processes. He takes Kid Loki's lingering Serpent-induced fear of all of his crimes, tempers it with the burning passion of seperated lovers, hammers it with the iron will of a father who refused to talk to his daughter even on his death bed, and cooled it in the utter apathy of an internet commentor that always comments but only with a "meh".

* Subverted in ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen''. After Charlie offends Berha and she quits, Alan takes over her duties. One of those is making coffee, and Charlie complains that Alan's coffee doesn't have the "Christmassy" taste of Berta's. Alan protests that all they did to make coffee was put water and powder in the coffee maker and turn it on, implying that Berta may have used an insubstantial ingredient. When Berda eventually returns, she reveals the ingredient was cinnamon.

* Sigil in ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' is full of many, many portals that only open for a specific key. Sometimes that key is an actual physical object, though it can just as easily be a key phrase, or even just a thought or an abstract idea. Since Sigil (and TabletopGames/{{Planescape}} in general) is all about [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Clapping Your Hands If You Believe]], it's not quite as ridiculous as it might seem.
