* Parodied in ''TheSimpsons'' "Radioactive Man" where the actor blurts this out right before sidekick Fallout Boy rescues him from the wave of acid. Fallout Boy doesn't arrive on cue, so Radioactive Man repeats. Nope. "My eyes! [[GogglesDoNothing The goggles do nothing!"]]
* Spoofed on FamilyGuy when exterminators act like they're in the middle of a BugWar and when cornered by fleas note the only thing left to do is pray.

* The titular character of ''HellTeacherNube'' has died, halfway through his own series, even. Then his students get attacked by a RealityWarper --the fearsome Agyou-san, a monster that can negate anything you say. Oh, wait, the demon isn't here! It's suddenly standing right behind you. It's just a harmless-looking, goofy thing! Agyou-san is now an EldritchAbomination-type mass of flesh and [[CombatTentacles tentacles]]. But wait, [[AnIcePerson Yukime]] and [[NobleDemon Tamamo]] are here, they can beat him! They're immediately impaled and nearly killed. [[NothingCanSaveUsNow If only Nube were here]], but ''[[BigDamnHeroes he's dead]]''...!

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''SluggyFreelance'', during the Storm Breaker arc. Before Torg and Zoe pick up the book of Gud, Torg proclaims loudly that the situation is hopeless in an attempt to summon help. Zoe asks why he did that, and Torg explains this trope to her. When she acknowledges its relation to NothingCanStopUsNow, the BigBad shows up without warning.

* In Mel Brooks' ''HistoryOfTheWorldPartI'', a character in the Roman Empire segment cries out "Only a miracle could save us now!" Cue Miracle the race-horse. In the French Revolution segment another character does the same. Cue Miracle and one of the Romans, who has chosen to ignore the story's internal logic.

* This is Zigzagged in the beginning of the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' episode "Operation: U.N.D.E.R.C.O.V.E.R." Numbuh One shouts, "Okay team, let's not give up hope now!" to which Numbuh Five replies, "Fine, cause Numbuh Five gave up hope a long time ago!" The camera then pans to show that the situation IS rather grim; all five members of Sector V are chained to an iceberg with [[TheDragon the Delightful Children]] closing in on a high-tech craft armed with giant, spiked hammers. (The heroes are saved when one of the Delightful Children - Lenny - apparently makes a mistake that causes the craft to rocket away. Later, [[spoiler:it turns out that this was Lenny's way of getting them to trust them for a plan where he acted as a ReverseMole.]])
