** Creator/KevinSmith loves this trope. In ''Film/ClerksII'', Jason Lee has a cameo as a character Randal refers to as "Picklefucker" due to an unfortunate incident in high school. Lee's character claims Randal "must be the only one who still remembers that". Lee's character then gives his food to Jay, who responds with, "Thanks, Picklefucker!" The audience thinks this is a subversion, until Jay then runs outside screaming, "Yo! Some picklefucker just gave us free eats!" indicating that he had absolutely no idea who the character was. WordOfGod confirms this is intentional in the commentary.
*** Actually, a trimmed portion has Randal asking "How did you know we called him Picklefucker?"; Jay responds, "[[HowDidYouKnowIDidnt You do?]]"

* Invoked rather violently in ''Film/TheDeparted'': [[JerkAss Billy's]] in a bar trying to get in with the [[TheIrishMob mob]]. He orders a cranberry juice, whereupon the guy sitting next to him says its a diuretic and asks if [[AllPeriodsArePMS he's on his period.]] Billy smashes his mug against the guy's head and is about to beat the crap out of him before mob lieutenant Mr. French separates them. He asks what's he's drinking: "What, is it your period?"
** Given that French observed the entire exchange, it seems more likely that his repeating the same line that triggered Billy's initial outburst is intended both to emphasize French's authority and to give Billy a chance to demonstrate his acceptance of that authority.
*** Later on, the head of mob Costello is sitting with Billy and orders a drink. His beverage of choice? Cranberry juice. Ha!

* Meta-example in the ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' franchise. The cards that Bruno uses (most recently in ''[[ShadowchasersTournamentOfShadows Tournament of Shadows]]'' are based on characters from ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' with a much DarkerAndEdgier theme, including an older version of Alice using a Vorpal Blade as a weapon. The author first introduced these cards in a fic called ''Legacy of the Duelist'', which appeared years before [[VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice a certain video game with similar themes]] was released.

* Meta-example in the ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' franchise. The cards that Bruno uses (most recently in ''[[ShadowchasersTournamentOfShadows Tournament of Shadows]]'' are based on characters from ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' with a much DarkerAndEdgier theme, including an older version of Alice using a Vorpal Blade as a weapon. The author first introduced these cards in a fic called ''Legacy of the Duelist'', which appeared years before [[AmericanMcGeesAlice a certain video game with similar themes]] was released.
