* ''Literature/TheTerror'': When the situation is especially bleak and crew morale is at a low, one crew member proposes a carnivale to cheer everyone up. He notes he got the idea from some pulp novel he read, but he can’t remember the book’s name or how it ends. [[spoiler:His description makes clear he’s talking about “The Masque of Red Death”, a story by Creator/EdgarAllanPoe about TheBeautifulElite trying to distract themselves from a spreading plague by throwing a party, and it ends with the characters all dying horribly at the hands of a monster. [[TemptingFate Guess what happens at the party the crew throws]].]]

* In the ''Film/ThePirateMovie'', Frederic dropped his sword when threatened by The Pirate King. He hears a voice tell him, "Use the Force, Frederic." The sword blade glows and he calls it back to his hand, disarming The Pirate King, his mentor, The PK asks, "Did I teach you that?" He responds, "No, saw it in movie once." Since the whole reality turns out to be JustADream (of Mabel's), it's justified.
