* The original ''[[WesternAnimation/SpiderMan1967 Spider-Man]]'' cartoon. Half the time he's falling to his death, the other half a villain's attack is approaching him. Would you guess he usually escapes using his web? 90% of the time he swings away. The other 10%, he turns his web into a shield or sling or parachute or trampoline or something.

** A possible reason might be that [[spoiler:bringing either of them back to Earth would allow them to suck the life force out of anyone and anything nearby]]. It was only after the White Kakugane was finally completed that they could set out.

** A possible reason might be that [[spoiler:bringing either of them back to Earth would allow them to suck the life force out of anyone and anything nearby]], which makes one wonder why they decide to go get him at all.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Dog of Death". Santa's Little Helper is looking sickly throughout the first act and eventually collapses on the floor. Grampa tells the family he's died, and they all look on sadly as the commercial break starts. When the show returns, it turns out SLH is in fact still alive, and the family all berate Grampa for deceiving them (he still insists the dog's dead however, despite blatant evidence to the contrary).

* Played for laughs in one episode of ''PoliceSquad'' Just before commercial break, Frank Drebin drinks from a glass as he speaks with a woman who we saw drug someone in the teaser. Suddenly the music cues up as he starts gasping and clutching at his throat. After commercial break, it is revealed that his drink went down the wrong pipe.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had an epic one in "Up the Long Ladder", an episode that was more focused on diplomacy rather than any urgent situation (i.e. no battles or powerful evil forces). Right before one of the commercials, Worf spontaneously faints on the bridge! After the commercial break, it is revealed that he just came down with the Klingon equivalent of measles. (The resulting B-plot is actually pretty all right, but still, talk about a Pseudo Crisis).

** A minor one in "Future Imperfect", where Riker awakes 16 years in the future with a 16-year hole in his memory, to discover that he's now captain of the Enterprise and that he has a young son. Mid-way through the episode, he gets a call from Dr. Crusher telling him that his son has been injured! Cut to commercial break, he broke his wrist. Crusher heals this injury in two minutes. It should be noted that this event does serve Riker's story in this episode, despite being a Pseudo Crisis from the audience's viewpoint.

** 'Episode "The Trouble With Tribbles". In TheTeaser the Enterprise receives a Priority One distress call from space station K7, indicating a disaster has occurred. During the first act, they learn that a Federation bureaucrat sent the message because he thought a cargo of grain at the station was endangered.

In a variant, this is actually a Pseudo Crisis in-universe; Kirk is angry, and refuses to take the diplomat seriously from then on.
