* In the Literature/SolarPons story "The Adventure of the Orient Express", Pons encounters several characters who are thinly disguised (''very'' thinly) famous fictional spies and detectives, including Ashenden, Hercule Poirot, and Literature/TheSaint.
** Pons himself is something of a Lawyer-Friendly Star based on Franchise/SherlockHolmes.
*** He's one of ''many'' pastiches of Holmes. It's a popular mystery fiction sub-genre.

* [[ComicBook/TheSandman Death]] shows up at Rick Jones' and Marlo's wedding reception during Peter David's run on ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk''. We don't see her face, just her upper torso and shoulders, but the pale skin, black sleeveless top and ankh pendant are giveaways. She briefly chats with the bride to assure her that Marlo and Rick will have a long and happy marriage, and to give her a gift. Marlo opens the gift and turns out to be a hairbrush. Given that Marlo had died and come back from the death in a previous storyline, you might say that Marlo had [[StealthPun a brush with Death]]

* In ''Literature/WitchesAbroad'', the Lancre witches are [[Literature/LordOfTheRings on a voyage down a fast-flowing majestic river in a small boat with unspecified hazards on both banks and (although they don't know it yet) a mighty cataract ahead]]. A strange creature with big frog-like eyes is seen swimming behind them, finally coming to the gunwhale and announcing, apropos of nothing, that it's his birthday. It is stunned with the flat of an oar and thrown back in.
-->Ugly little bugger. I wonder what he wanted?
** Elsewhere in the Discworld, the [=NacMacFeegle=] have swords which glow blue in the presence of great evil. Lawyers.
** And in the ''Discworld Noir'' computer game, there is a young female Stealth Archaeologist with the suspicious initials L.C.

** Actually, Pokémon makes quite a few references. For starters, [[http://www.pokefarm.com/wp-content/rotom.jpg Rotom]] is based off of [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/Pulseman_box_art.jpg Pulseman]] and Volt Tackle is based off of his signature move. It helps that the creator of Pokémon also made Pulseman, however. Anything outside of that is rare.
