* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': The Rash. One of the symptoms of the disease's full blown version is getting skin irritations. One of the other definitions of "rash" is to qualify something done without much thought, leading to a common use as "something done too fast". Since the disease victims have a small chance of becoming PlagueZombie monsters that seem to act entirely on instinct at the beginning of the story and the disease itself spreads very fast, both of the other definitions apply as well.

** Vanitas: It means "emptiness" (and can even be defined by the appropriate kanji), and sounds similar to vanity and Ventus, his rival. To make it even better, the kanji for "emptiness" can also be used for [[spoiler: "sky"]], hinting at their shared connection to [[spoiler: Sora]].

* A line in the Music/TheBeatles' "Back in the USSR" goes "That Georgia's always on my my my my my my my my my mind." It's a ShoutOut to "Georgia on My Mind", a reference to the then-Soviet republic of Georgia, and an allusion to [[SensualSlavs Georgia as a woman's name]].

** The return of it in ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' is not only a CallBack to the first film, it comes at the exact moment in the film where the crew is actively sabotaging the enemy.

* Pat Buchanan's autobiography ''Right from the Beginning'' has three meanings: he has been a right-wing conservative from the beginning; his views have been correct (in his eyes, at least) from the beginning; and he is telling his story straight from the beginning.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has a character named Viral, who fits with the DNA ThemeNaming of many antagonists (Lord ''Genome'', the Four Generals named after the Nucleobases, etc.); however, his name (following the Japanese rules of pronounciation) can be also spelt "Bilal", as in French comic book artist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enki_Bilal Enki Bilal]]. That's why Viral's mecha is named ''Enki''du and the song associated with him on the soundtrack is called "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nikopol_Trilogy Nikopol]]".

* John Sheridan's nickname in ''Series/BabylonFive'', ''Starkiller''. This is both a, in-universe reference to him destroying a ship named the ''Black Star'', but it could also foreshadow him later destroying [[spoiler: another ship called the ''White Star'']], and a writer's reference to StarWars.

* One {{Deathworld}} in the TabletopGame/Warhammer40K universe is called Phyrr. On one hand, it is an obvious pun on ''fear''. On the other, the TropeNamer for Deathworlds is Creator/HarryHarrison's Deathworld trilogy, where the planet in question is called... Pyrr.

* In ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'', Mr. Mighty has been known to exclaim "Great Siegel's Ghost!" This is based on the phrase "Great Caesar's Ghost", commonly used by ''Daily Planet'' editor Perry White in ''[[Radio/TheAdventuresOfSuperman The Adventures]]'' ''[[Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperman of Superman]]''... which starred a character created by Jerry Siegel.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', in "Smug Alert", probably has one. The Smugs all drive Hybrid cars. (As in combined gas/electric engine.) The obvious pun is with "hybris" (or "hubris", the usual spelling). The stealth pun is that in biology, a hybrid is a [[TheyKilledKenny bastard]]. There is another pun in the the brand of car they drive, the Pious, which referenced that they are pious in attitude and Toyota's hybrid car, the Prius.
