* In VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII, King Trode's ability to [[StealthHiBye pop up from nowhere]] is usually followed by Yangus [[https://33.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7mtjuttDC1r00wup.jpg jumping to the side with a yelp of "COR BLIMEY!!"]] However, by the time the party visits Tyran Gully late in the game, Yangus admits that the gag's run it's course.

** The series is riddled with running gags, some of which are overused for comedic effect. Most notoriously, the "Retrieve arms from x" command has been done about ''12 times'' in ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' and ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. ''So far''.

* {{Reddit}} tends to get tired of jokes within the course of a few days, causing responses of "every time" and the likes whenever a joke the HiveMind has gotten bored of is used. In a grander scale, the subreddits /r/f7u12 and /r/adviceanimals, for rage comics and image macros, respectively, were removed from the default subreddits around 2013 because they were getting old, and most of Reddit was sick of them.
