* In ''[[AVeryPotterMusical A Very Potter Sequel]]'' Ron attempts to cheer up Hermione, who's worrying that she's too much like Umbridge, by comparing her to Spider-Man. It's pretty clear that's not what he's really talking about when he mentions Spider-Man's 'enormous breasts.'

Handily TruthInTelevision. Nearly all metaphors start falling apart if you compare it to things far beyond the intended analogy. Has a lot of overlap with {{Dissimile}}. Compare AnalogyBackfire, SidetrackedByTheAnalogy, ShaggyFrogStory, DisorganizedOutlineSpeech, ILikeMyXLikeILikeMyY and MixedMetaphor. Because this often uses realistic diction, it can also subvert RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic. BuffySpeak uses this a lot.

''Metroman'': You can't trap justice. It's an idea! A belief!\\
''Megamind'': Well, even the most heartfelt belief can be corroded over time!\\
''Metroman'': Justice is a non-corrosive metal.\\
''Megamind'': But metals can be melted by the heat of revahnge!\\
''Metroman'': It's "revenge", and it's best served cold!\\
''Megamind'': But it could be easily reheated, in the microwave of evil!\\
''Metroman'': Well, I think your warranty is about to expire!\\
''Megamind'': Maybe I've got an extended warranty!\\
''Metroman'': Warranties are invalid if you don't use the product for its intended purpose!\\
''Roxanne'': [groans] Girls, girls! You're both pretty! Can I go home now?

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' gives us this wonderful example:
-->'''Azula''': That's a sharp outfit, Chan. Be careful, you could puncture the hull of an empire-class Fire Nation battleship, leaving thousands to drown at sea.\\
'''[[{{Beat}} (Awkward pause)]]'''\\
'''Azula:''' Because...it's so sharp!\\
