* ''WebVideo/Spaceshipcontrol'' is notorious for this. Examples include the random arrival of Donald Trump Aliens on Earth, a scene where the protagonist shoots a pistol at a demon while on a swing, a sequence where the protagonist pretends to be in a First-Person shooter using a vegetable as a gun, a scene where one of the side characters is killed by an upside-down picture of a cow falling on his head and a moment where the protagonist dances Gangnam Style for no reason.

-->-- '''Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw''' (in response to the line "We may need you to play twing-twang;"), ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'', "[[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/1-Heavenly-Sword-and-Other-Stuff Heavenly Sword Demo review]]"[[note]]As this was merely the demo, it did not give the context, which exists elsewhere in the game. Hence why [[VideoGame/HeavenlySword this game]] is not listed below.[[/note]] [[note]]For those who are curious, "playing twing-twang" is [[{{Deuteragonist}} Kai]]'s ([[{{Protagonist}} Nariko]]'s adopted little sister) way of saying "shooting at people with arrows"[[/note]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' in the episode "Storm the Castle", a Mexican unicorn who did not appear at any earlier point in the series [[spoiler: offers to repower Star's wand]]. This may also be a MindScrew.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* This applies to any of the scenes in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' involving Chiyo's father. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnktCDi-BVs This scene]], for instance, makes equal sense before and after seeing/reading the work in full.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MarginalNumber4'' has schoolboy idols making out with a bust of Pythagoras. Context? It's part of an idol competition. Yeah, doesn't make much sense that way either... [[RuleOfFunny but it's funny]].

Sometimes, though, an event is just as nonsensical in context as it is when summarized (maybe even more nonsensical), and we say it [[TitleDrop Makes Just As Much Sense in Context]].

* ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' creator Chris Chandler's "I Got a Fish" video, which features Chris dancing and singing "I got a fish, would you like to make a wish?" (added via a deliberate HongKongDub) several times over. Many people who see this in WebAnimation/YouTubePoop or similar videos assume it's part of some longer clip in which it makes much more sense. It isn't, and it doesn't.

* Pretty much everything about the CartoonNetwork show ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa.'' A ManChild RealityWarper who is everyone on earth's uncle and grandpa travels in a flying RV with his friends-- a wisecracking slice of pizza, a deadpan godzilla-like lizard, a giant realistic flying tiger who farts rainbows, and a talking belly bag-- to save kids from dangers such as talking mustaches and hot dog monsters. Good morning!
