Shades writes down a number on a piece of paper and hands it to Cottonmouth:

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has this happen during "Epilogue", the AlternateEnding where [[TheBadGuyWins Discord won]]. [[TheDragon Twilight Tragedy]] tells us all manner of horrifying facts about how much of a CrapsackWorld it is, but when she gets to [[PsychopathicManchild what Fluttercruel does]], she simply says [[YouDoNotWantToKnow "You don't want to know what Fluttercruel does"]]. We later find out what it was; [[SerialKiller she]] [[ColdBloodedTorture reenacts]] [[{{Cupcakes}} a certain fanfic]] ForTheEvulz. Needless to say, this actually lives up to it.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' there was Zero Reverse, the disaster (caused by ''a portal to hell being forcibly ripped open'') that demolished half of Domino City and broke it into two pieces, creating Satellite. Only still images of the disaster are shown, and we really have to take the word of those who witnessed it - and survived - how terrible a cataclysm it was, and it was clearly one of the biggest disasters in history. In the dub, Tetsu Ushio describes it to Rua and Ruka this way:

* For the people of modern times, the genius of {{Creator/Sappho}} has largely been reduced to this trope. There are many, many records of her poetry being gushed about in ancient times, but very little of it has actually survived to the present day. Aside from the scraps which have survived, we just have to trust that the ancients knew what they were talking about when they were calling her "the tenth muse" and counting her as one of the Nine Lyric Poets.

* Before his execution in 1936, infamous serial killer, pedophile, and cannibal Albert Fish gave his final statement to his defense attorney, James Dempsey, in written form amounting to several pages. When asked to reveal his statement by journalists after the execution, Dempsey said that he would ''never'' reveal what Fish said, stating that it was the most vile string of obscenities that he had ever read. To this day, Fish's final statement has never been revealed to the public.[[/folder]]

** In one intervew, in which, while [[TheDogBitesBack 2D is mocking Murdoc]], Murdoc reveals that he was the vocalist in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ-S968G7Jc "White Light"]]. As might be expected, the voice in that song is much more guttural and atonal than 2D's usual singing voice.
