* The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse has two pop-cultured badasses in [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Peter Quill (Star-Lord)]] and [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming Peter Parker (Spider-Man)]]. Quill jams out to classic rock songs from the [=60s=] and [=70s=] while protecting the galaxy, while Parker takes inspiration from classic films like ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' to contend with his foes. Naturally, the two geek out a little when they meet in ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar''.

* Saul Goodman in ''Series/BreakingBad'' is an eccentric BunnyEarsLawyer who casually makes references to movies, TV, literature, music, and mythology in everyday conversation. He's also able to talk himself and/or his clients away from the deepest legal troubles as well as his strong connections in the criminal network. This trait carries over to his prequel series: ''Series/BetterCallSaul''.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' is known around the globe as the world's most dangerous spy, and for good reason. His dialogue is ReferenceOverdosed, one of his catchphrases comes from a Kenny Loggins song, and he has an obsession with Burt Reynolds movies.

** Raiden met Rose by correcting her on which building King Kong climbed.
** Specifically averted with Naked Snake/[[spoiler:Big Boss]] however; he's constantly being told about movies by his team, with his British commanding officer Major Zero being a devout Bond fan. Snake on the other hand can only be described as naive in this field.

* Deconstructed in ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'' and its adaptations. Patrick Bateman tries to define himself through his appreciation for music, art, and pop culture and relates this much to the reader/audience, but his grasp and understanding of his favorite music and artists is reduced to what material they make the most appealing to the widest audiences and lowest common denominator, such as dismissing early Music/{{Genesis}} albums with Music/PeterGabriel (and his "lame solo career") as being "too artsy, too intellectual" and favoring the more commercially-driven direction of the group after Music/PhilCollins became the group's frontman. Other assessments he makes of popular singers and bands are frequently off-the-mark and factually wrong, like being convinced that Music/WhitneyHouston is a ''jazz'' singer or believing [[Music/TheRollingStones "You Can't Always Get What You Want"]] is a song by Music/TheBeatles. In the book and musical, he often speaks of owning what's described as the original version of [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/600x315/5e/2e/c5/5e2ec5ee9ec77bb094ef1b45e762d45a.jpg "Sunrise with Broken Plates"]] by artist David Onica (while discreetly boasting of the high cost he paid to obtain it), only for his ex-girlfriend to later point out to him that he hung it upside down. All of this only serves to further demonstrate Patrick's shallowness and delusions about having "good taste."

* [[GamerChick Zoey]] in VideoGame/Left4Dead knows just how to handle the ZombieApocalypse because of her love for horror movies. May overlap with IKnowMortalKombat.

** Teal'c, surprisingly, after he acclimates to Earth culture. Turns out he's a huge fan of ''Franchise/StarWars''. He also immediately recognizes a reference to ''Film/DieHard'' later in the show, even when none of his teammates got it.
