* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "The Answer" a pearl appeared for a few seconds. She doesn't speak or really even do much but she is the first pearl shown aside from Pearl. Her design really stood out and within minutes of the episode airing fanworks started popping up. She was dubbed [[FanNickname "Blue Pearl"]] by fans.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is full of giant humanoid monstrosities from UncannyValley.

** [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Poorfag Poor-chan]], a girl in the protagonists' class taking notes in a notebook.

After many threads on a certain ImageBoard, she became an incredibly [[ThePollyanna optimistic young girl]] despite [[BreakTheCutie her horrendous living circumstances.]] She is somewhat [[TheDitz ditzy]] and takes [[ButtMonkey whatever the world throws at her]] with good grace.
** [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/File:Clip_Girl.jpg Clip Girl]], another random student that some fans picked up on because she was looking at Homura. Fans decided that Clip Girl [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer had a crush]].

* If you pick up a comic book, you might notice two recurring characters in the form of a ginger man with glasses and a goatee and his stockier, black-haired friend. They’re usually cops, but they’ve also be seen as everything from civilians, party-goers and common crooks), and are always seen together. The kicker? They’re found in Marvel, DC ''and'' Transformers comics, completely transcending companies, writers, and artists. No one knows where they come from or who created them. They are known to fans simply as the “Mystery Hipster Cops”.

* In ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', as Rossiu [[spoiler:announces Simon's execution]], a man can be seen in the crowd giving a BicepPolishingGesture. However, due to cultural differences the Western audience interpreted as the man giving an "up-yours" gesture. Dubbed Bruce Ironstaunch, this man became the vent of viewer's hate to [[TheScrappy Rossiu]].
