* {{Invoked}} by Marinette in the ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug]]'' fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5777140/chapters/13314037 i've been out on the ocean, sailing alone]]'': as in this fic she's the one who has to select Chat Noir and has been told about Plagg's love for puns, she decides to test her list of candidates (her classmates) by unleashing horrible puns on them, discarding the ones who have this reaction (and hoping she'll have an excuse to discard Adrien, as she doesn't want to have his crush as a partner). The biggest one, however, is Ivan's: after a bug pun too many he stormed out of the class... And came back as an ''akuma''.

* In ''A WesternAnimation/DuckTales Valentine'', Huey, Dewey and Louie find a chest in a sunken Greek temple.

** Papyrus often has this kind of reaction to his brother Sans' puns, even when he actually likes them. Upon [[spoiler:meeting Toriel in the True Pacifist ending]], Papyrus declares that it's the best day of his life. After one bad skeleton joke from [[spoiler:her]], he decides it's now the ''worst'' day of his life instead.

Upon [[spoiler:meeting Toriel in the True Pacifist ending]], Papyrus declares that it's the best day of his life. After one bad skeleton joke from [[spoiler:her]], he decides it's now the ''worst'' day of his life instead. However, there are times when Sans points out that [[ActuallyPrettyFunny he's smiling]], and in some of his phone calls, [[NotSoAboveItAll he makes his own puns]].
