** In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeriesChaosVerse'', a couple of Discord's lines from canon get put into a new context here:
*** "A weighty choice is yours to make, the right selection or a big mistake", this time said by [[spoiler: Discord to himself when having to choose between letting [[BigBad Nightmare Phobia]] kill Fluttershy and risking Fluttercruel's life to save her.]]
*** "Make sense? Oh what fun is there in making sense?" Twice, first when [[spoiler: Fluttercruel says it to scare Fluttershy out of her nightmare]], the context making it a TearJerker, and second when [[spoiler: Discord realizes he's a Bearer of the Elements of Loyalty and Laughter during the FinalBattle]].
** Back in the original ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', [[BadFuture Dark World]] Rarity/Rarigreed, well after her [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]], manages to turn her thousand-year CatchPhrase of "[[{{Greed}} MINE!]]" into a PreMortemOneLiner, when she says it right before [[spoiler: ripping out [[PsychopathicManChild Fluttercruel's]] Element of Chaos, which kills her]].
*** A little earlier, during the fight with [[TheStarscream the Valeyard]], he shoots down Derpy's [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight attempt to reach the Doctor]] by saying "I'm the Valeyard, the Doctor's out, and he's not coming back". Later, when he's [[VillainsWantMercy begging]] her not to [[spoiler: [[BewareTheNiceOnes beat him to death]] in an attempt to regenerate him back into the Doctor]] by saying she wouldn't hurt a friend, she points out that she's ''the Doctor's'' friend and "You're the Valeyard, the Doctor's out, [[spoiler: but he'll be back soon]]".
** ''FanFic/GettingBackOnYourHooves'': When Trixie is setting up [[BigBad Checker Monarch]] for her EngineeredPublicConfession, she takes the time to recreate the one chess match she ever beat her at when they were fillies, just so she can throw Checker's catch phrase of "Checkmate" back in her face.

* At the beginning of "A Complete History of the Soviet Union, Arranged To The Melody From ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}''" by Pig With The Face Of A Boy, the "man who arranges the blocks" muses that "The Tsar puts gold on his bread" when noting the unfairness of the old regime. At the end, having gone through [[RedOctober revolution]], JosefStalin, WorldWarII, the [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar Space Race]] and [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp the fall of the Berlin Wall]], the same worker bitterly notes that while he has more than enough gold, he's reduced to standing in line for the chance to get a loaf of bread.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' features an extremely well-deserved one in the prologue to the Followers of Set clanbook. At the start of this particular story, Maria Kenyon is a meth-addicted SexSlave working for [[SmugSnake "Doc" Hayes]], who provides her with her daily fix in exchange for an increasingly disgusting series of sex acts, and always begins each session with "Want your medicine, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]?" However, by the end of the story, Maria has been Embraced into the Followers of Set, and as a graduation present, she's been given her own ghoul - none other than Doc Hayes himself; finding herself with full authority over her former boss, and [[HourglassPlot knowing that Hayes is now just as hopelessly addicted to vampire blood as she was to meth]], Maria has only one thing to say to her terrified slave: ''"[[KickTheSonOfABitch Want your medicine?]]"''

* Several examples in ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'':
** "Do not ask questions you don't really want to hear the answer to." Gendo told this to his son. Several months later, Shinji remembers his words when Gendo asked him a question he ''definitely'' didn't want to hear the answer to.
** "Cry when you feel sad. Laugh when you're happy..." Asuka originally told this to [[spoiler:Aki]] as a lesson about not hiding your feelings. After [[spoiler:Shinji is absorbed by Unit 01,]] she tells herself this since she can't show her feelings. Due to the anachronic nature of the story, we actually hear the echo before the original line.
--->'''Asuka:''' Who am I to ask for a promise that I can't keep myself?

* Pyrrha Nikos from ''WebAnimatino/{{RWBY}}'' has "[[ApologizesALot I'm sorry]]" as her catchphrase, normally because of how polite she is. It stops being cute in episode 8 of season 3 when, in a moment of emotional turmoil, she ends up sending Jaune (the boy she has a massive crush on) flying into a pillar with her magnetism powers. And then there's the season finale where [[spoiler: it's the last thing she ever says to him as she sends him off to safety before she is killed in battle against Cinder (right after she confessed her feelings).]]
