* The story in ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'' was based closely on the experiences of the writer, Nosaka Akiyuki, in WorldWarII. In RealLife, Nosaka [[spoiler:watched his little sister die of starvation]] the same way the main character of the movie did. That the said main character [[spoiler:[[TakeThatMe later starves to death on the floor of JNR Sannomiya Station]] in [[HowWeGotHere the opening of the film]]]] should tell you a bit about how he still feels about that.

* The famous Marseillaise scene in ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' features a close up of a woman crying while singing. The film was produced during WorldWarII. Many of the actors, including that woman, were forced to flee Europe due to the German invasion. The emotion in that scene was not faked.

* May or may not have been intentional, but the wrong anthem incident in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E24EquestriaGames Equestria Games]]'' had a real life precedent in 2012, when the parody Kazakhstan anthem from ''Film/{{Borat}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2WH9HVJRFk was played at the Kuwait International Shooting Grand Prix]]'' when Kazakh Maria Dmitrienko won.

* Tragically, the pained [[BreakupSong breakup songs]] written by Creator/{{Motown}} staff writer Rodger Penzabene, including TheTemptations' hits "I Wish It Would Rain", "You're My Everything" and "I Could Never Love Another (After Loving You)" and the Music/GladysKnight[=/=]Music/MarvinGaye duet "The End Of Our Road" were inspired by the the songwriter's RealLife heartbreak over his wife's [[YourCheatingHeart adultery]], and the couple's subsequent divorce. According to TheOtherWiki, Penzabene would [[DrivenToSuicide commit suicide]] on New Year's Eve 1967, one week after "I Wish It Would Rain"'s release.

* At some point during or before production of ''Film/{{Bobby}}'', Creator/LindsayLohan received word that one of her closest friends had passed away. Lohan used up her grief over that event to fuel her during the more emotional scenes in the film.

*** Some have viewed the film's premise of the Avengers splitting into two factions going against each other accidentally reflective of the ongoing friction of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. The USA at the time was said to have engaged in a kind of "social civil war" having been polarized by the support of both it's two candidates, particularly the surprising popularity of it's [[Creator/DonaldTrump most controversial candidate and eventual winner]]. The film's tagline "United We Stand. Divided We Fall." somewhat highlighted this.

** For ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Creator/MarkRuffalo has stated he was extremely hesitant about taking the role of Bruce Banner. He called Robert Downey Jr. for advice, who convinced him to take the part. Ruffalo ended up kicking ass as Banner/Hulk. This is amusingly similar to their characters' relationship in the movie.

** In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', Tony Stark telling Peter Parker that he's here to give him a much-needed revamp and upgrade could be seen as a nod to Marvel Studios trying to fix Sony's ''Spider-Man'' franchise after the failure of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2''.

** The episode ''Gamera vs. Guiron'', has a line that's become infamous as the show's most obscure joke ever. There's a shot of a girl running away from the camera, and Tom Servo shouts, "Look out, Mike, she's got your keyboard!" This was a reference to the fact that head writer Mike Nelson had just broken up with his girlfriend, and she took Mike's keyboard when she left. (And this was back when Joel was the lead character, and Mike Nelson only made occasional appearances in front of the camera.)

*** Jerry Orbach died of prostate cancer just after joining the cast of, after spending 12 years on the mothership show as Detective Lennie Briscoe. ''Trial By Jury'' was cancelled in its first season due to low ratings, and Briscoe is stated to have died offscreen sometime thereafter.
*** In one episode, Briscoe is huddled by the door of a courtroom with some cops and is providing whispered commentary so as not to interrupt what's going on inside. The scene was written this way because Jerry Orbach was so weak from cancer treatments that he couldn't raise his voice to a normal speaking volume.

* ''WesterAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Volume Three starts with Ruby talking to her mother's grave. Monty Oum, the creator of RWBY, [[AuthorExistenceFailure had passed away]] before the start of the volume, so Ruby talking also acts as the crew of Rooster Teeth talking to Monty. [[spoiler: At the end of Volume three, after several deaths in the show, a slow song mourning the loss of someone who changed the lives of those around them plays over the credits, which end InMemoriam to [[TearJerker Monty]].]]
