* "Going to America" in ''[[Film/{{Clonus}} Parts: The Clonus Horror]]''. It is possibly a reference to Dostoyevsky's ''Literature/CrimeAndPunishment'', wherein Svidrigaylov commits suicide using the same euphemism. [[WordOfGod The director]] claimed it was due to "post-'60s fuck you-ism".
* The titular island in ''Film/TheIsland''. [[spoiler:In reality, there is no "lottery" and the clones are "chosen" when their originals need spare parts.]]

* In the ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' book "Dog Days", the Heffleys are celebrating Father's Day by going to brunch with Grandpa Heffley. Frank (Greg's dad) asks why Greg seems so sad and he replies he's "bummed out" because his fish died. Frank says that he never had a pet die so he can't empathise but he did once have a dog named Nutty who ran away to a butterfly farm. Grandpa then says that Nutty didn't really run away to a butterfly farm but got run over, which makes Frank ''mad''.

* In ''Literature/{{Ratburger}}'', when [[KidHero Zoe's]] pet rat Armitage gets kidnapped by a rat catcher named [[BigBad Burt]], [[EvilStepmother Sheila]] asks Burt what he does with the rats and we get this.
--> '''Burt''': "Well, I tell the kiddies that they go to a special hotel for rats"
--> '''Sheila''': *laughs* "And they believe ya?"
--> '''Burt''': "Yes, the little fools think they all get to frolic outdoors in the sunshine, before relaxing in a spa area, having massages and facials and the like!"
--> '''Sheila (whispering)''': "But really...?"
--> '''Burt''': "I pulverise them! In my special pulverisation machine!"
** Later
---> '''Sheila''': "You're evil. Ya know that, young lady. Evil! I've got a good mind to throw ya out on to the streer! How could ya attack dat lovey man?"
---> '''Zoe''': "Lovely?! The man is a rat murderer!"
---> '''Sheila''': "No, no, no. They all go to a special rat sanctuary and have spa treatments..."
---> '''Zoe''': "Do you think I am completely stupid? He kills them."
*** [[spoiler: Don't worry. Armitage survives, but a few background rats don't.]]

* An underground city in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has little food and and water and are unable to reliably care for more then 50 people. Every time the population reaches more than 50 people, they draw straws to see who gets "the blessing of the gods" meaning they get sent up to the surface, which is crawling with HumongousMecha that are charged to kill ''anyone'' on the surface. Tragedy ensues when a pregnant woman gives birth to triplets, bringing the population to 52. The family with triplets doesn't "win," but two {{Heartwarming Orphan}}s (Gimmy and Darry) do, specifically because they ''were'' orphans and therefore had no family to grieve for them. An older but sharp boy (Rossiu) then learns the truth and decides to go with them: to help care for the orphans and to help maintain the {{Masquerade}} by removing himself and the possibility of uncomfortable questions. The dark nature of the trope is subverted in this case, as the whole episode occurs while Simon and Kamina's group were in their city; the trio end up going with them, becoming significant characters as the series progresses. However, it does add further tragedy, since Rossiu is placed in an extremely similar situation post-TimeSkip

* Subverted in the first season finale of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''. Shaggy's parents assure Shaggy that while he's sent off to military school, they've found a nice farm that will take Scooby. Turns out they really do send him to a farm, albeit one resembling the second season of the original ''[[WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies1980s Pound Puppies]]'' cartoon; basically it's a jail.

** Many officers, confessed to selecting people for "transfer" out of the secret prisons. Officers told remaining "disappeared" prisoners that the former inmates were "transfered" somewhere else. In reality, the "transfered" were summarily executed then buried in mass graves or incinerated. Others were drugged, tied to metal weights, put on cargo planes, and thrown overboard above the Atlantic Ocean.
