* A few years before Creator/StanLee introduced Comicbook/DoctorStrange, he created a similar, but far less successful supernatural hero named Doctor Druid. The two characters had strikingly similar origin stories, and many comic historians have commented that Druid was likely a precursor of sorts to Strange. Many years later, ''Avengers Spotlight'' #37 revealed that Doctor Strange and Doctor Druid had actually been empowered by the same man, the Ancient One, and that Druid was essentially used as a guinea pig to make sure that it would be safe for the Ancient One to make Strange the new Sorcerer Supreme:

* The final issue of ''ComicBook/CaptainMarvel and the Carol Corps'' ends with the title characters flying off into the unknown space outside of Battleworld, with the narration [[BolivianArmyEnding commenting that while there's a good chance they might all die]], death is better than simply sitting around and refusing to explore what else is out there. Some have read this as commentary from writer Creator/KellySueDeconnick, as this was her last ''Captain Marvel'' story before she left Marvel Comics to focus on her creator-owned stuff like ''Comicbook/BitchPlanet''.

** In ''ComicBook/SecretEmpire'' #7, Carol Danvers is lamenting to the comatose body of the female Quasar that she's the reason for Steve Rogers and Comicbook/{{HYDRA}} taking over the United States and Earth's most powerful heroes are stuck behind an impenetrable shield. That she started off [[ComicBook/CivilWarII the second superhuman civil war]] that divided the superhero community again because she was too stubborn to back down, that she wanted people to love her and instead gave them reason to ''hate'' her. This is seen as reflecting on the CharacterDerailment done to Carol due to the story.

* In ''Series/TheWestWing'', Knowing that John Spencer (Leo [=McGarry=]), had [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim died]] in real life, makes the characters' reactions (especially those of KristinChenoweth) all the more poignant.

* ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTalesInTheHouse'': In "A Gift for Singing", Ichabeezer performs a rap bashing Pa Grape's store that, despite its nasty lyrics, is too much of an EarWorm for anyone to resist. This may be a reference to the controversy that surrounded the "Bunny Song" from the ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' video ''Rack, Shack & Benny'', which was a VillainSong that parents criticized because it was catchy enough for their children to start singing its bad lyrics aloud.

* ''[[FanFic/CitadelOfTheHeart Truth and Ideals]]'' had Chapter 72 ending with [[AuthorAvatar Grandis]] in a rather downer mood on a snowy night during the conclusion of the 8th Gym Arc. As the story progresses until its conclusion, Grandis shows a lot of signs of slacking off on the job as he begins [[DrowningMySorrows drowning his sorrows]] with either non-alcoholic, sugar filled drinks and soda, or eating a huge amount of pizza and junk food. In the end, Grandis was very quick to leave once he was no longer necessary, as he felt the need to just take time off and relax for who knows how long for at least the remainder of the year. In what ended up being a more LifeImitatesArt example of this, [[WordOfGod the author confirms]] he had been slacking off much of the remainder of 2017; often drinking caffeine filled soda and eating pizza and other junk food, and being incredibly lazy as he had a lot of anxiety issues over the fact a story he had worked on for over three years was finally over. Due to this, now that he had no need to work on it any time soon, he developed an EmptyNest syndrome regarding it that prevented him from focusing on his other fics.

* "On the American Plan," a sketch presented in the 1932 Broadway revue ''Flying Colors'', is set at a hotel which caters exclusively to the suicidal. At the end of a sketch, a man comes on and introduces himself as a theatrical producer, and the receptionists immediately tell him "Say no more!" as they [[LeaveBehindAPistol hand him a pistol]]. Though TheGreatDepression was obviously fatal to many renowned producers' careers (Ziegfeld left behind massive debts when he died in the same year), Max Gordon, the producer of ''Flying Colors'', really did attempt suicide during the show's tryout when he realized that the TroubledProduction was certain to lose its investment.

* A major theme in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' is the concept of a second chance in the face of the mutant race's impending extinction. This could be seen as a nod to the fact that the movie was seen by some as a last-ditch effort to revitalize the ''Film/XMen'' franchise, which had been in a critical and box office tailspin since the release of ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' and ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''.

* ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus'' was to have starred HeathLedger, but he died before filming was completed. In a show of support, Creator/JohnnyDepp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell finished the film in his place with the help of a magic mirror (according to an IMDB poster, Ledger has 45 mins of screen-time (out of ~120 total), Law and Farrell 15 each, and Depp 10). [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming The three actors then donated their profits from the movie to Heath Ledger's daughter.]]

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks "Victory of the Daleks"]], for the first time, justifies the change in default Dalek props in-universe: [[spoiler:Three Daleks who have miraculously survived the Dalek genocide of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd "Journey's End"]] (and are thus represented by the Creator/RussellTDavies props) create a new Dalek breed, technicolor, taller and more powerful than them. The old Daleks declare their unworthiness in comparison to the new ones and are promptly disintegrated by them.]] The actual production reason for the switch is that the RTD Dalek props were built so that they can go eyestalk-to-eye with Creator/BilliePiper (Rose), so the Creator/StevenMoffat props were conversely made to match the much taller Creator/KarenGillan (Amy).

** [[Recap/DoctorWho2017CSTwiceUponATime "Twice Upon A Time"]] ends with Twelve making a speech to his successor as the Doctor essentially saying "it is your time now, good luck". It is very easy to see this as Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffatt wishing their successors (Jodie Whitaker and Chris Chibnall) all the best.
