** If you read the ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', when close-ups of the Pokéballs are given, the top half is translucent at the least, allowing someone to tell which Pokémon is in which ball.



* In ElfenLied, both versions, a bedridden Kouta endures Nyu's heartfelt but badly informed efforts to get him a drink of water. By the time Yuka arrives to aid them, she thinks they must have been engaged in some kind of summoning ritual. The gag is nearly identical to one with Momo, Katara and Sokka in AvatarTheLastAirbender.

* Harley Quinn does this in an issue of ''Harley & Ivy''. Contains a minor instance of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, as among the items she tosses out of the purse are a tampon and a condom.

* On AvatarTheLastAirbender, Momo is asked for water by a very sick Sokka and Katara while Aang fetches the cure for what ails them. The well-meaning creature brings everything you can think of except for water, leaving Aang very confused at episode's end. A very similar gag was used with Nyu and Kouta in ElfenLied, likely one of the only things the two series have in common.

* Taken UpToEleven in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2''. Not only is Baby Groot unable to bring back Yondu's replacement fin after ''many, many'' repeated tries, he ''doesn't even understand what it is he's supposed to be retrieving.''
--> '''Rocket:''' (when Groot drags ''an entire desk'' through the ship) We told you it was ''this big.''
** Taken even further in that by the time he ''finally'' gets into the correct drawer in Yondu's stateroom, we see the fin and him absolutely beaming has he reaches for it, only oops! He picks up some random tin that was lying next to the fin. Had [[spoiler: Kraglin]] not intervened to deliver the fin, this would have gone on a ''lot'' longer.

** The [[ChristopherEccleston Ninth Doctor]] does this in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek Dalek]]", rummaging through Adam's collection of weapons. The third item he pulls out he dismisses as "hairdryer!". This was an in-joke, we are told on the DVD extras, referring to a hairdryer that was used as a gun on Doctor Who's sister programme Blake's Seven.

** Another example is when Peter wins a month of maidservice from ''WheelOfFortune''. He tells her to clean out his belly button...and pulls out several objects, namely a carton of Parliament cigarettes and a Colecovision (with controllers!)

* [[MarxBrothers Harpo Marx]] practically started this gag with his magical trenchcoat. While he could often as not pull anything out of it from a swordfish to a lit candle (burning at both ends), there's still the classic moment in ''Film/AnimalCrackers'' when Chico requests "The flash" (light), and gets a flask, flush, fish, and flute. Since it's too dark to properly find anything, Harpo eventually pulls out a flashlight to try and find his flashlight.
