* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' hilariously subverts this trope with the episode "The Job". The normally lazy Richard tries to get a job, but it's soon discovered that if he does, [[ApocalypseHow it will destroy the universe]].

** Face it: Ash's Pikachu is never going to be a Raichu. This is explained in a few episodes, most notably when the Vermilion Gym match has it face its evolved form. In-universe, it's a matter of pride. In the games, it's because Pikachu can still learn more moves from getting stronger while Raichu, being a stone-evolved Pokémon, can't learn much (such as learning Volt Tackle in the Battle Frontier arc, then trading it for Electro Ball early on in Unova). And in real life, it's because they'd have to redesign the series' iconic mascot. Taken to a particular extreme in the Mistralton Tower episode, in which Ash performs a DivingSave to prevent a Thunder Stone from accidentally hitting Pikachu.

* ''Manga/Working!!'' is the epitome of Status Quo, with characters seemingly going out of their way to establish a status quo even when its detrimental to their goals or has nothing to do with them whatsoever. There is never even an explanation for this and it is done without a hint of irony.
