* In ''Grimm'', The character Monroe is a clock-maker. Despite this, he only ever has anything to do with clocks in one episode.

* The Order of the Phoenix in ''Fanfic/PrincessOfTheBlacks'' does very little to actually fight Voldemort and his Death Eaters. During a series of attacks, only a dozen members actually help the Ministry and none of them were on Dumbledore's orders.

** The East India Company is a villainous version. They are never seen actually doing much trading, administration or any of the other things the real, historical Company did--just hunting pirates, and/or being jerks to the good guys.

** Nintendo occasionally refers to Mario being a plumber in the past tense, it just being one of the ''many'' occupations he's had, alongside things like carpenter, doctor, and, of course, princess-rescuer.

** Nintendo occasionally refers to Mario being a plumber in the past tense, it just being one of the ''many'' occupations he's had, alongside things like carpenter, doctor, and, of course, princess-rescuer. One instance of this caused a brief panic among fans until [[https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2018-03-06/nintendo-officially-reinstates-mario-as-a-plumber/.128625 Nintendo reassured them]] that he's still a plumber, although he's [[{{Understatement}} "not limited to that."]]

* Lampshaded and averted in ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/2898.html here.]] Even with a link to the page in the annotation!

* Lampshaded and averted in ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/2898.html here.]] Even with a link to the page in the annotation!annotation! Also parodied by the "Death" theme--most of the {{Grim Reaper}}s rarely, if ever, reap souls, mainly because most of them [[CripplingOverspecialization only engage with a specific and extremely rare type of death]]. Most of their comics involve them [[DiscussedTrope discussing]] how uneventful their un-lives are.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TheGodfather'' never explicitly describes the Corleones [[ShameIfSomethingHappened collect protection fees]]. The only protection racket is described in a flashback to the 1920s (shown in film in ''The Godfather, part II''), where Don Fanucci tries to blackmail the young Vito Corleone [[spoiler: who realizes that Fanucci is unprotected himself, murders him, and becomes the new Don]].

* ComicBook/LuckyLuke: Morris created Lucky Luke in 1946, as a cowboy who took time off for adventure. Since Goscinny took over the writing in the 1950s, Luke has been in very few cattle drives.

* In ''Series/{{Roots}}'', slaves seem to have an awful lot of free time. Much is made of major outrages (rape, children being sold away, mutilation of runaways) but little emphasis on the horror of performing agricultural work 70 hours a week for no pay from age six till death.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', we have the hierarchy of the Gods and Kaios, who oversee the various worlds and galaxies. With a few exceptions[[note]]The Kais fought against Buu's original rampage, Kami trained Goku and the Z Fighters for two upcoming threats, and King Yenma decides who goes to Heaven and Hell[[/note]], absolutely none of them have ever been shown doing anything important, from Kami the Guardian of Earth all the way up to Kaio-shin, who oversees the entire ''universe''. It becomes something of a running joke that all they do is sit around observing the worlds below them and either making casual comments or fretting about how bad things are going, with any intervention on their part deemed "disrupting the order of things" and [[TheMainCharactersDoEverything leaving it up to the mortals to sort it out]]. If that's the case, [[FridgeLogic why are they even there in the first place?]]
