** 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.

** Further subverted in "Slice of Life". When Doctor Hooves' "flameless fireworks" are introduced, the Doctor says he doesn't know what would cause them to ignite. When Muffins/Derpy takes them to a wedding as a substitute for flowers, they're ignited by the newlyweds' [[ThePowerOfLove love]], which in Equestria is a close sibling of the series' titular magic.
