* Done in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' with Hol Horse and Boingo, the latter of which has a comic book that predicts the future. It foresees Hol Horse kicking a woman, who is so thankful she rewards him with a great deal of treasure. Hol Horse finds the whole thing ridiculous until they find said woman: turns out she had a scorpion on her back, and Hol Horse kicked it immediately upon realizing what would happen otherwise.
