* In a ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' comic, [[InsufferableGenius Jason]] buys a Rubik's Cube at a garage sale after hearing it was ''the'' puzzle of the 80s. He solves it quickly, failing to see how anyone could have found it "hard".

* ''WesternAnimation/MrPeabodyAndSherman''. Subverted. UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein is seen playing with a Rubik's cube. He appears to have solved it, but finds one tile out of place and smashes the whole thing in frustration. [[note]]A single tile being out of place is a sure sign that someone has sabotaged the cube. It's impossible to get from a 1 tile switched around cube to a solved cube, and vice versa, without either taking the cube partially apart or switching the stickers. Maybe he just doesn't like cheaters?[[/note]]
* ''WesternAnimation/WallE''. After EVE has arrived on Earth, WALL·E takes her to his "house" and shows her the (unsolved) Rubik's cube. The camera moves away following WALL·E and when it returns only a few seconds later, EVE has solved the Rubik's cube.

* Ironically, this Trope was Deconstructed and Defied in ''WesternAnimation/RubixTheAmazingCube'', a short-lived series meant to capitalize on the toy's popularity. Pretty much every character could solve it within a minute, and while the main cast had an excuse (Rubix was powerless if his colors were mixed, which happened by accident rather often) it made little sense for anyone else.
