* In ''ComicBook/ArchieComics'', Archie once requested for Jughead to use the latter's old stopwatch to record his time, to rehearse for the track-and-field tryouts later. During Archie's practice, Jughead tells Archie that he actually broke the world record for his sprint. Archie gets a huge confidence boost that he actually wins the tryout race. However, a skeptical Coach Kleats (he lost his own stopwatch, and Jughead volunteered to time the events in his stead; Kleats wonders why all the runners in the tryouts have excellent times) asked to have a closer inspection of Jughead's watch, and figures out that Jughead's watch is actually running slow. So Archie, never mind that he made the team, realizes he's been fooled, and decides to take out all his anger on Jughead.

* A unique version was used in ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' when XR's BlackSheep brother XL attacked him and stole a component from him called an AFD, which was believed to be the most important part of XR. Naturally, XR felt that without it, he was useless. In the end, however, it was revealed that the AFD was merely an Air Freshening Device and that what XR had in him that made him great was not in a robotic sense.
