* In ''Manga/SailorMoon'' Sailor Venus has multiple parallels with the Roman Goddess of Love, [[LoveGoddess including her tendency to bring couples together by simply being around]]. Her luck in love is so horrible the first youma she killed was ''her crush'', and [[spoiler: she later killed also her one true love]]. The fact she realizes it is part of the reason she's MarriedToTheJob.

* ComicBook/{{Concrete}} is hired to be a spokesperson for a controversial radical population control program in ''The Human Dilemma'' because he is [[spoiler: "race-neutral, childless, and sterile"]]. We already know from ''An Armchair Stuffed With Dynamite'' that he's not [[spoiler: race-neutral]], but it gets better. [[spoiler: Guess who [[BizarreAlienBiology somehow]] ends up pregnant the night before accepting the job?]]

* "We're Not Going To Make It" by Music/ThePresidentsOfTheUnitedStatesOfAmerica lists several reasons why they don't think they'll be successful. One of those is "We don't know how to rhyme." This comes two lines after "We don't have the ''time''."

* One Mandalorian in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII'' becomes a DeathSeeker if you beat him in a sparing match. Convinced there are no battles to fight and that he will never redeem himself. Not only is the Mandalorian camp attacked later in the story. Mandalore personally leads his clan(which would've included him) in the assault on the Sith flagship. If only the poor guy had waited just a little bit longer...

* Commodore's [=C64GS=] is recognized as the worst selling video game console of all time, selling around 2000 units. The irony is that it's based on the hardware of the UsefulNotes/Commodore64, the best selling home computer of all time. (Sales estimates vary from ten million to seventeen million.)

* Many levels in ''VideoGame/Superman64'' have you flying Superman through loops, very similar to the CultClassic game ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams...'' What's the ironic part? ''NiGHTS'' is considered a great game, while ''64'' is considered one of the worst.

* Following the formation of the [[UsefulNotes/NoMoreEmperors Republic of China,]] Sun Yat-sen wanted to introduce a more modern form of formal wear for use by Chinese politicians, while also getting rid of the traditional Manchu clothing whose wear was required by the now-defunct Qing Dynasty for their officials, and in doing so, create a signature look for the new Republic. Thus was developed the Zhongshan suit, combining Eastern and Western clothing styles and sensibilities without being too much like either. It became quite popular with government officials, and was required wear for those attending Parliament. As it became an accepted and recognized dress among China's communist political leaders (who were allowed in on an individual basis, not as the communist party as a whole), it soon became the standard suit of both the Nationalist and Communist political parties. When the Republic of China lost the UsefulNotes/ChineseCivilWar and the nation became the communist People's Republic of China, Mao Zedong adopted the suit for his government and became its most famous wearer. Eventually, what had once been a suit intended to be worn by the Nationalist politicians and military became a symbol of proletarian unity among the common populace of Communist China. Because of this, the outfit became closely associated with both Chairman Mao and the Chinese Communist movement, gaining the popular nickname of the "Mao suit".

* Vaas in ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' tries to set Jason on fire at one point, only to discover that his lighter is out of fuel. So, he sticks the spent lighter in Jason's pocket instead. Later, [[spoiler: Vaas tries to kill Jason again by shooting him. The bullet is stopped by the lighter.]]

** Vass likes to tell Jason that "The definition of insanity is repeating the same actions and expecting a different outcome." He's apparently under the impression that Jason didn't get it the first time he told him, so he repeatedly tells him this expecting him to finally get it.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RidgeRacer 7'' has a body kit company called Dig Dug (named after [[VideoGame/DigDug the early Namco game]]) which can be sponsored with a livery on the Danver Hijack Complete. The irony is that Dig Dug is the only body kit that is not available on the normal Hijack.

** It took ''years'' for Hinata to finally confess her love to Naruto, who couldn't comprehend both her feelings and his own as romantic due to him being ObliviousToLove and not truly understanding the concept of [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove romantic love]], although it's later confirmed that [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe he also never thought someone like Hinata]] would genuinely [[WartsAndAll love him for him]], due to [[DarkAndTroubledPast his past]] plaguing him with insecurities. [[spoiler:Come ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', Naruto finally understands what romantic love actually means, which helps him realize the true nature of his feelings for Hinata. As a result, he CannotSpitItOut that he's in love with her, while ''Hinata'' doesn't notice [[EveryoneCanSeeIt his very obvious feelings]]. He does eventually spit it out via FreudianSlip, only for Hinata to be unable to respond to his LoveConfession due to [[BigBad Toneri's]] intervention]].
