* A hack of ''VideoGame/PokemonFireRed'' intended as a TakeThat against Nintendo's draconian FanworkBan that had claimed ''Pokémon Uranium'' and ''Pokémon Prism'' ended up targeting, among others, [[{{Misblamed}} Junichi Masuda]] (who is actually more friendly towards the idea of Pokémon fangames than is Nintendo).

* In ''Literature/{{Cluster}}'', Flint of Outworld is visiting a planet with a dueling society, during which he attends a party where he stands between two men who are constantly hurling insults at him. When a lady nearby asks if he is going to continue to let them insult him, he innocently says, "I thought they were talking about each other."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', Scarface seems fond of intentionally invoking this trope, redirecting insults directed at him onto the Ventriloquist, which largely works due to the weird "who's in control?" nature of their relationship.

* In an episode of ''Series/MotherAndSon'', Arthur attempts to get Robert to take care of Maggie for two weeks, so he can take his girlfriend to New Zealand. Robert dismisses his concerns, telling him they're all in his head, and walks out. Arthur yells back, "All in my head"?! She's half-loony, she's absent minded, and she can't look after herself!" He then turns around and [[RightBehindMe apologises to Maggie]], who replies, "That's alright, Arthur. But she sounds like a strange choice for you to go to New Zealand with."
