* In the first episode of ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'', Huey tries to convince Ed Wunsler's garden party that UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan is the devil by pointing out that Ronald, Wilson, and Reagan each have six letters in them. Therefore, 666. However, this just makes him even more adorable to the guests.
** The comic strip had a similar joke about Santa Claus. Huey evidently went through several possible "proofs" before landing on the fact that the date of Santa's annual errand, December 24th, adds up to 36 when expressed numerically. [[InsaneTrollLogic 36 = 3 6's!]]

* One ''Comicbook/GhostRider'' arc ("Vicious Cycle", if anyone's curious) had Johnny Blaze accidentally bring Lucifer with him when pulling a LikeABadassOutOfHell stunt, at which point Lucy fragmented and possessed a number of recently-dead people. If you can't guess how many from the page you're on, there is nothing we can do to help you.

* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', Creator/AleisterCrowley is eventually revealed to have used the CodeName Beast666.
* With the premise of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', this trope was inevitable. Called "Trihexa", it is considered to be the most powerful monster of the series that other mythologies, upon seeing it, claim that even they can't destroy it.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the atmosphere readings of "The Impossible Planet"/"The Satan Pit" are 66.6, the gravitational field is "6^6 every 6 seconds", and the name of the base, "[=SB6=]" is seen gradually melting into "666". The two-part episode was even aired over the week of 6th June 2006, or 6/6/06. Also, the Ood go to work to the sound of Ravel's Bolero, which Torvill And Dean famously skated to in the 1984 Winter Olympics -- and received perfect 6s for artistic impression.
