* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has several of them, completed with CartoonCheese in front of them, the problem being that they are impossible to get (they are respectively [[UpToEleven stuck to the table, crystallised, and kept in a computerised safe]], plus a plate of cold spaghettis with an unplugged microwave somewhere in the middle). In the GoldenEnding PlayableEpilogue all the cheeses are gone, presumably eaten by the mouses.
--> "Knowing the mouse might one day leave its hole and get the cheese... It fills you with [[ArcWord determination]]."
