* In ''Literature/{{Gate}}'', the party checks into a hotel. Since Rory Mercury is pretty famous, the staff are star-struck and scramble to accommodate her and her friends. However, while they see the other girls as Rory's comrades, they think Itami is her servant and snub him. They give Rory and the other girls a luxurious room and tell Itami he can just sleep in the hotel's closet. Since Itami doesn't like getting into conflicts, he just plays along. When the staff later finds out their mistake, they are left very scared and apologetic.
