** Otta also displayed a comical inability to say the word "[[MonsterOfTheWeek Roidmude]]" no matter how many times he's corrected; what he does say instead gets translated into things like "Hemmoroido" and "Pork Roasto". In one episode, he even acknowledges this while under the effects of a HatePlague, raging that his co-workers think he's an idiot because of it. The gag gets put to rest about 3/4 of the way through the show, [[spoiler:where it's revealed that the incredibly powerful Freeze Roidmude placed a mental block on the police to render them [[PoliceAreUseless ineffectual]], [[TriggerWord keyed to the word "Roidmude"]]; Otta's mispronunciation is one of the only reasons he was able to remain competent. A cure is developed, and once it's used on Otta he's able to say the word properly, much to his teammates' relief.]]

** First, he only got bits and pieces of information about the Kamen Riders and therefore had a wildly inaccurate image of them - for instance, he saw only parts of Drive's body at times when he was in [[MultiformBalance different forms]], so his mental image of Drive was a mashup of all of them; and then when he realized there was more than one Kamen Rider running around he thought that ''all'' of Drive's forms were actually different people. This ended when Drive's identity went public and Otta could get his facts straight from the source.

source. It gets an amusing CallBack in the ''Kamen Rider Heart'' post-series movie where Heart's attempt to transform into Drive results in his turning into a real-life version of Otta's mashup picture, complete with a reaction shot from Otta when he sees it.

* ''WebComic/CtrlAltDel'' had a running gag of a normal strip being interrupted with one of the character randomly getting shot by an arrow. It was officially retired by having Ethan dodge and [[ArrowCatch catch]] it and snapping it in half. [[PianoDrop Cue him being crushed by an elephant]].

:: Given a callback as the very last line of the ending before the credits roll, though not by Yangus this time.
* In the first ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' game, numerous references were made to cake, such as Chell's reward being cake, and the famous TheCakeIsALie meme was found here. In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', [[DiscreditedMeme the writers were sick of the memes]] and stripped out all references to cake... except ''one'': an [[SchmuckBait Obvious Trap]] labeled "[=GLaDOS=] Emergency Shutdown and Cake Dispensary".

* WesternAnimation/BugsBunny doesn't do his trademark crossdressing shtick much, if at all, anymore, since its considered rather politically incorrect now to play something that can be interpreted as making light of transsexuality for a laugh, even if that wasn't remotely the intention of the original filmmakers. The last major instance of Bugs doing it was in ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunesBackInAction'', which was specifically done to call to attention how dated and questionable the gag is now.

* Early on in ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks,'' Tom was deathly afraid of [[BlackComedyRape being raped by Bubba]], [[HypocriticalHumor despite happily sending members of his own race to the exact same fate]]. In ''A Date With The Booty Warrior,'' he faces his greatest fear: [[MemeticRapist The Booty Warrior]]. [[TookALevelInBadass He easily defeats the Booty Warrior]], and he doesn't get a single rape joke in Season 4.

** Subverted with the running gag of Peter's shenanigans destroying the front of Cleveland's house while he's taking a bath, causing his tub to fall to the ground. At first, it seemed like the first episode of The Cleveland Show was this, as it was TheLastStraw that convinced Cleveland to move out of Quahog. Even after that, however, the gag still makes a few sparse appearances.

** The cartoons and comics can't use [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed caricatures of]] Creator/PeterLorre anymore (at least not in the context of him being a MadScientist like he was in a few of the older Looney Tunes) due to legal issues with his estate, who will no longer authorize using caricatures of him in that context. It got a planned appearance of him axed from one of the Looney Tunes comics and replaced with the scientist from ''Water, Water Every Hare''.

* From ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', the evil monkey living in Chris' closet. In season 8, he finally [[AccidentalInnuendo came out of the closet]], turned out to not be that bad of a monkey, helped Peter and Chris amend their relationship, and moves out to live in Jake Tucker's closet. He has been OutOfFocus in Family Guy, but he makes a complete HeelFaceTurn in ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', where he is [[MeaningfulRename renamed Monkey]], and he saves Cleveland from the guys from {{Deliverance}}.
