* [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]] in the episode "The Tale of Scrotie Mc'Boogerballs" of WesternAnimation/SouthPark. When Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny wrote a extremely NauseaFuel novel just for fun. The novel ends up being published and became a success, with the readers of the novel end up interpreting the absurdly disgusting scenes as symbolisms for political issues, while they actually don't had any meaning beyond just being disgusting.

* Takanuva's reanimation at the end of ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Mask of Light'' is one of the biggest {{ass pull}}s in the story, but the creators wanted to [[{{Anvilicious}} very blatantly]] make it clear that three of the main characters each represented one of the story's three virtues: Hahli stood for Unity for uniting the villagers, Jaller represented Duty for doing his work without question, and Takua/Takanuva was all about Destiny, accepting his fate and becoming the hero Takanuva who defeated the BigBad. In order to drive the symbolism home, he ends up being reduced to his mask, but is immediately brought back to life by Turaga Vakama loudly proclaiming which virtue each of them represented, placing Jaller, Hahli and the mask onto a UDD symbol engraved into the floor. It's never explained how this brought Takanuva back, nor why he lost his body in the first place.

---->We look around Xavier's school some more, exploring every nook and cranny of Prof. X's office. We spot a couple of Atlas-themed book-ends, with two muscular men carrying planets on their backs. It makes us flashback to that dark room, where we saw [=McAvoy=] cry. If ever there was a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders, it's James [=McAvoy=]'s Professor X.

* ThomasPynchon's ''Literature/GravitysRainbow'' is so rife with symbolism integrated magnificently into the story (even much of the {{squick}} is symbolic!) that there's plenty of symbolism to be seen ''even when it might not be there at all''!
