* Similarly to the Pokemon example above, a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' version of "Jingle Bells" has Rainbow Dash essentially ''forcing'' Applejack, Rarity and Pinkie Pie into her sleigh ride because the entire town is terrified of her mach speed sleigh rides and they all hide, the aforementioned trio being the only ones who are unable to escape.

*** In the second game, Edgeworth cuts off Wendy Oldbag's rambling with "I object to the witness's talkativeness." This is actually a legitimate objection, which the Judge sustains.

** Interpol agent Shi Long Lang, Edgeworth's rival in ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations]]'' openly despises prosecutors after one of them tampered with evidence submitted by his father, destroying the Lang clan's reputation in the process. Working with Edgeworth throughout the game doesn't change his beliefs about prosecutors by the end of it, though he does at least acknowledge Edgeworth as a WorthyOpponent.
** Near the end of the above game, it's discovered that Lang [[spoiler: has been unknowingly harbouring a major criminal within his team of subordinates. Who he later takes a bullet for and insists on arresting himself]]. These actions are seen as him [[spoiler: aiding and abetting a known criminal]], and by the time of the next game, Lang is revealed to have lost control of his old team of investigators as a result.

** There are a few moments where legally valid real life objections, and courtroom rules that'll hold up in an American court, are used. Since the court system in game is so insane, it's a bit jarring when they do this. (The games are based on the Japanese system where it's a more accurate representation.) For example, the Judge at one point tells a witness that her testimony is hearsay and therefore isn't admissible. Although this is immediately shattered, when the prosecutor objects to the Judge himself, stating at the testimony should be accepted. Phoenix himself, however, goes on to use hearsay to his advantage later on.
-->'''Judge:''' Mr. Wright, please keep the questions for the witness.\\
'''Phoenix:''' "Something you heard from someone else isn't admissible as testimony". Your words, Your Honor.\\
'''Judge:''' ... Touche, Mr. Wright.

** Characters who commit crimes not related to the murder being investigated (altering crime scenes, forging evidence, wiretapping, interfering with investigations, attacking police officers, etc) will be shown in the detention center later, showing that they do serve time for what they did. On the other hand, it seems darned near impossible to actually get anyone in trouble for perjury. ''Dual Destinies'' plays with this, the judge using threats of conviction for perjury to motivate witnesses to start telling the truth.
** Also, the fact that Phoenix in the second game [[spoiler:defends a murderer is reminiscent of many real attorneys who have to defend murderers who are actually guilty (of course, unlike most attorneys, Phoenix has to be blackmailed into it).]]
** What happens when you spend years exposing the hypocrisy and corruption of the justice system? According to ''Dual Destinies'', the result is that people don't trust law enforcement and prosecutors, which, because no one seems to care about guilt or innocence anymore, results in ''blatant and flagrant'' abuse of the law. NiceJobBreakingItHero.
** Since this series relies quite a bit on eyewitness testimony, laws regarding testimonies get invoked from time to time. A few witnesses get threatened with perjury for lying too often, and it hurts their credibility in the Judge's eyes. Also, the Judge once dismissed evidence because of hearsay; in his words, "something that you heard from someone else isn't evidence."
*** Related to this, Phoenix himself used hearsay later on in the case, only for the Judge to attempt to throw it out. The problem? Earlier on, the prosecutor forced the Judge to accept the previous hearsay testimony, which Nick threw in both of their faces! [[{{Touche}} The Judge allows him to continue.]]

** After multiple attorneys and prosecutors are caught [[AmoralAttorney presenting forged evidence]], and at least a few are convicted of murder (with [[VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney one of them]] requiring a complete overhaul of the entire legal system just to convict him), the public has understandably lost faith in the justice system by ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies''. The loss of faith causes more defence attorneys and prosecutors to use corrupt means to win cases heralding "The Dark Age of the Law". Even revealing the truth behind the two main incidents that caused this does not fix things immediately; someone still needs to pick up the pieces.

* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6apo1xlkXk commercial]] for Big M (an Australian brand of flavoured milk) has a man walking along with a carton in his hand when he sees a piano roll out of a moving van and down the street, heading directly towards an old woman struggling to walk her dog. The man puts down his chocolate Big M and [[LeParkour runs after it]], jumping onto a passing garbage truck and then a motorbike to get between the woman and the piano. But when he turns and puts his arms out to stop the piano from hitting them - it doesn't, taking him, the woman and, after a moment, the dog (pulled by its lead) with it. Cue the slogan: "Think Big! But not too big."

* A recent advertisement by British phone and internet provider BT features Creator/RyanReynolds demonstrating the range of a BT router's wifi by hanging on to a helicopter's skids as it flies up while holding a tablet. As soon as the helicopter takes off, Reynolds begins screaming in terror and begging the pilot to land, who just obliviously asks him if he has wifi.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* This is rare, but some themed rides may successfully be able to invoke this trope.
* Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a mine train roller coaster located at four of the Ride/DisneyThemeParks. The theme of the ride is that you're traveling on a possessed mine train through an old mine from the 1850s. One thing that sets the Disneyland Paris version of the ride apart from the others is that the trains are painted to look weathered from years of neglect, while the other versions use trains that look shiny and brand-new.
