** The director as well put much reality subtext into the film. He was apparently annoyed that it was regarded as an anti-war film during its inital release, and in a 1988 interview in ''Animage'' Magazine, [[WordOfGod flat out stated]] that the message that he wanted to convey was not "WarIsHell" but instead "[[TakeThat look here, you little juvenile delinquent creeps -- look at what your parents or grandparents had to endure so you could be so spoiled rotten]]." He was enraged at the waves of juvenile delinquency that had gripped Japan since the '70s. This was the entire reason that late in the film, Seita and Setsuko [[spoiler:as ghosts]] look out over the modern-day city of Kobe, and then give the audience a look which seems to say "[[YouBastard you bastards.]]"

* ''Literature/AftermathEmpiresEnd'' contains a brief appearance from Jar Jar Binks, who is now a street performer and said be beloved by children but hated by adults. This is of course a nod to the fact that he was originally a KidAppealCharacter utterly ''despised'' by the majority of the franchise's adult fanbase.

* The premise of the 2017 ''Comics/{{Youngblood}}'' relaunch is a new team is formed to be a RedeemingReplacement for the original team, which has long-since disbanded and publicly reviled for being overly violent, arrogance and putting themselves above the law. Likewise the 2017 relaunch itself is an attempt to revive and update for the [[UsefulNotes/TheModernAgeOfComicBooks modern age]] the ''Youngblood'' franchise itself, which has fallen a long way since it's heydey in the [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks early 90's]], and now only largely remembered as an example of [[Main/DarknessInducedAudienceApathy everything]] [[NinetiesAntiHero wrong]] with that period of comics.

* One of the biggest examples of this is the allegory behind ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry''. The movie entails the forging of peace between long-standing enemies, {{the Federation}} and the Klingon Empire, as the Klingons face extinction following the destruction of their moon, Praxis. The film, released in 1991, bluntly parallels the ending of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar as tensions between the United States (The Federation) and the Soviet Union (Klingons) had subsided partially due to the potential damage done to Russia, one of the world's greatest superpowers, after the Chernobyl Disaster of 1986 (The Destruction of Praxis).

** Speaking of ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Chris Nolan seriously considered using actual footage of the Occupy Wallstreet movement, due to the fairly explicit parallels to the movie's plot. He ultimately decided not to, averting the trope.

* ''Film/AmericanReunion'' is, both a reunion in-universe for East Great Falls High Class of 1999, as well as in reality with all of the original cast members coming together for the first time in over a decade.
* ''Film/SpaceJam'': The subplot with Michael Jordan playing baseball is based very loosely on his real life semi-retirement. It's essential to the plot because it means the aliens don't think to steal his basketball skills and this incident in turn leads to him returning to basketball which he also did in real life making this a sort-of fictional autobiographical account. They even go so far as to acknowledge in film that Jordan is a subpar baseball player and is only being indulged because of his celebrity.

** Likewise the scene where the New Yorkers help out Spidey against Green Goblin as he tries to save a tram of school kids and Mary Jane i.e: The citizens of the city banding together.
* When Al Michaels reprised his RealLife role as the broadcaster of the US-Soviet Union hockey game in ''Film/{{Miracle}}'', most of his lines were scripted. However, the last seconds of the game featured the RealLife call from 1980 on the belief that Michaels could never duplicate that same emotion.

* Both the first and last ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' films mirror Creator/SylvesterStallone's story of making them quite movingly. He had over 30 failed screenplays to his name before United Artists took a chance on ''Film/{{Rocky}}'', and he was instantly catapulted to fame and fortune. Then when Stallone tried to make ''Film/RockyBalboa'', it was at a time when he was a laughingstock after several poor career moves, and no one thought the film could be anything but a disaster. Yet when the film was released, the fans all trumpeted it as a worthy conclusion to the story.

* Jennifer Grey and Creator/PatrickSwayze's tense working relationship going back to ''Film/RedDawn1984'' compounded the on-screen tension during Baby's TrainingMontage in ''Film/DirtyDancing''. Baby's giggling when Johnny Castle brushes his hand down her side, touching her breast, was just Jennifer Grey's nerves getting the best of her. Swayze seems mildly annoyed on most of the takes that ended up in the film.

* In ''Film/ClerksII'', Jason Mewes returned to the iconic role of [[TheStoner Jay]] for the first time in five years, with the biggest change to his character being that he had sworn off drugs (''doing'' them, not selling them) and turned to Jesus since the events of the original ''Film/{{Clerks}}''. In reality, Mewes had been battling a heroin addiction since the mid-90's, which greatly damaged his long-time friendship with Creator/KevinSmith, and finally got him sent to court-mandated rehab in 2004. When Smith agreed to let Mewes reprise his role in ''Clerks II'' in 2006, he did it on the condition that Mewes stay clean. Considering Smith had actually forced Mewes into rehab himself at least once before, and he had earlier refused to cast him in ''Film/JerseyGirl'' because of his drug problems, he understood the significance of making Jay an ex-drug user all too well.

*** Some have viewed the film's premise of the Avengers splitting into two factions going against each other as being accidentally reflective of the massive friction and tension generated by 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 deeply polarized by it's two candidates, particularly the surprising popularity and support of it's [[Creator/DonaldTrump most controversial candidate and eventual winner]]. The film's tagline "United We Stand. Divided We Fall." somewhat highlighted this.

* At some point during or before production of ''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.

* In ''Film/{{Deadpool|2016}}'', Colossus's attempts to have Deadpool join the X-Men and act like a real hero, and Deadpool having none of it, can be seen as reflecting the real-life push for making a more standard-fare, family-friendly superhero movie, and the filmmakers' (especially Ryan Reynolds) utter refusal to do so by keeping the movie as trashy and R-rated as the character deserves.
* The titular rumor of ''Rumor Has It'', about how Sarah's parents were the inspiration for the movie ''Film/TheGraduate'' stems from an real-life rumor that the original novel was inspired by an actual family.

** Riker's existential crisis throughout "The Best of Both Worlds" paralleled producer/writer Michael Piller's own crisis, as he pondered whether he should stay with TNG or move on to new opportunities. Riker's statements about Commander Shelby mirrors Piller's feelings about younger writers like Ronald D. Moore. Riker's and Guinan's conversation about Riker becoming his own man and "letting go" of Captain Picard in order to beat him could almost be about the show's struggle to find its own identity [[ToughActToFollow in the long shadow of the original series]].

** ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' got in a few great lines in its fifth season when Nana Visitor (Major Kira) was pregnant with Alexander Siddig (Dr. Bashir)'s child. Since Kira was the show's female lead, this would have been hard to hide, so the writers resorted to an inane plot twist: another character's baby had to be ''transplanted into Kira'' to save its life after an accident, and then (because of Kira's biology) couldn't be taken back out before the due date. In "[[{{Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS05E01ApocalypseRising}} Apocalypse Rising]]", Kira is talking with Dr. Bashir, she gets off the line "this [pregnancy] is all '''''YOUR''''' fault." The best part was probably in the episode "The Begotten", where Bashir finally delivers the little snot. Visitor gets the line "YOU DID THIS TO ME!" Common enough in media, where the woman in labor shouts at the father.

** The show also hid the pregnancies of Cobie Smulders and Creator/AlysonHannigan using large, baggy shirts, but towards the end of the season, Hannigan was too big to hide and needed to go on maternity leave, so the writers created a joke that would offend Hannigan's character Lily so much that she wouldn't speak to the rest of the group for a month.

** In 1970, ''Doctor Who'' made the switch from black and white to colour. At the same time, the production team came up with a StoryArc where the Doctor gets exiled to Earth in the 1970s, which allowed them to save the money that would ordinarily get spent on exotic settings. The producers considered having him face off [[MonsterOfTheWeek a number of alien invasions]]. However, it was felt the sheer number of invasions would push WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief too far, and so the Master was introduced as a recurring villain. Furthermore, the Master was originally slated to die saving the Doctor's life. Instead, Roger Delgado (the Master) died in a tragic car accident. Jon Pertwee (the Third Doctor) left the show partly due to this and the Master got new life later, played by other actors.

She really does adore her father, who single-handedly raised Wilson and her brothers while managing his daughter's film career, thus doing a much better job than Annabel's father.
