* The Philippines are a country whose name is ironic in and of itself because the Filipino language has no F pronunciation! Yes, they can't properly pronounce their own country's name calling it the ''Pilippines'' instead of the ''Philippines.'' [[labelnote:*]]To be fair, it's not entirely their fault. The Philippines used to be a Spanish colony and that name came from King Philip II of Spain, but it's still pretty ironic that they'd keep a name they can't pronounce.[[/labelnote]]

* Harry Potter notes in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11669575/16/For-Love-of-Magic For Love of Magic]]'' that Grindewald did more for equality among magicals in a few years than Dumbledore did his whole life. Of course, he accomplished that by killing most of the old pureblood families in Europe to steal their artifacts and knowledge.

** Another example from the musical: a group of MoralGuardian-types protesting a rock club while singing "We're Not Gonna Take It". ''Especially'' when you consider the protestors' similarity to the PMRC and how the [[TwistedSister lead singer of the band that performed that song]] felt about that group.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings", the Robot Devil throughout the episode describes the results of his schemes as ironic, to which Bender kept correcting him: "It's not ironic; it's just coincidental!" or "It's not ironic; it's just ''mean!''" Only at the episode's musical ending did Bender note that the Robot Devil finally executed the ''dictionary'' meaning of the word: "The use of words expressing something other than their literal intention! Now [[PunctuatedForEmphasis THAT... IS... irony!]]"

The Robot Devil's first use of the word actually is a correct example of Situational Irony. [[/note]]

-->''The irony that those two will end up spending more time with Asuka then any of her rapidly growing fan club… now that’s the textbook definition of irony.''
