* 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''!

Added DiffLines:

*** Charles and Erik have at least one costume which was strongly influenced by ''Series/MiamiVice'', and they are basically dressed as Detective Crockett and Detective Tubbs, respectively. Like Crockett and Tubbs, Xavier and Lehnsherr are HeterosexualLifePartners.

* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':
** The presence (or at least the desire to have it) or absence of Magneto's telepathy-blocking helmet is a fairly good gauge of how unhealthy or healthy his relationship with Professor X is. [[http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=108298 As writer Simon Kinberg puts it]], the finale marks the beginning of the characters' FriendlyEnemy dynamic:
--->"At the end of the movie, [Magneto] flies away without his helmet, with the implication that he'll go off and continue to be Magneto in some form, but not be able to hide it from Charles, who'll be able to read his mind and track him. There's a truce of some kind between Charles and Magneto, but there's a part of Magneto that will always be the Magneto we know from the comics."
** [[http://screenrant.com/x-men-days-of-future-past-photos/ This article]] has made the following observation about the elderly Erik:
--->"From the photos, we see that Ian [=McKellen's=] older Magneto has no need for his iconic helmet that protects him from mutant telepaths since he's once again allied with old friend Charles Xavier."

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'':
*** The Four Horsemen [[http://nerdist.com/x-men-apocalypse-set-visit-bryan-singer-interview/ represent four different aspects of a cult's power]] to attract and recruit new members.
---->'''Creator/BryanSinger''': It has a political faction, and I'd always felt Magneto could fill those shoes. It always has a military faction, so Archangel could fill those shoes as the guardian. There's also a youth faction. Those that you're trying to seduce and grow into your cult--the young, whose minds are malleable [such as Storm]. And lastly, the sexual component, because cult leaders tend to sexualize their position and have sex with half the people in their cult. And the Psylocke character, who was a very bright character in the comic, but is always looking for guidance and leadership, always trying to find the right guy, so she ends up with Apocalypse in this one.
*** [[https://in.movies.yahoo.com/post/137684622919/x-men-apocalypse-on-set-of-the-darker-heavier There are bookends]] in Charles' study which are shaped like the mythological figure Atlas, and they symbolize his heavy burden of trying to save the world.

* Many of the [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands New Cards As The Plot Demands]] in the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' franchise are set up to allow actions in the game to reflect something outside of it. For example, in ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', Shun uses a combo that puts a mark on Dennis' Performage Trapeze Magician, which would force Dennis to reveal his hand [[spoiler: (and the Polymerization he was holding, which would out him as an agent of Fusion)]] when it was destroyed. This makes Trapeze Magician a representative of Dennis' [[spoiler: false persona]], and its ensuring destruction would force him to 'show his hand' in both a figurative and literal sense.
