* In ''QuestForGloryI'', a gargoyle who guards the house of the wizard Erasmus asks the hero three questions similar to these, probably as a reference to ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''. If he gives the wrong answer, he is transported back to the bottom of the mountain. The questions are random and along with the standard "what is your name?" and "what is your quest?" there are also questions either about information you've learned in the game or ones that are {{shout out}}s to other media. For instance, to "what is your quest?" the hero can answer "[[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland I want to be a pirate.]]" Another question asks what the password to the thieves guild is, and the correct response is actually to [[SecretTestOfCharacter give a wrong answer to prove that you are not a thief.]] (The VGA version is slightly different as ONLY answer the gargoyle will accept "I don't know." as the answer) And the answer to "What's the meaning of life?"...

* [[DeadpanSnarker Ferr]] of the LetsPlay/FreelanceAstronauts tried to pull this [[RunningGag a few times]] during the LetsPlay of ''SeriousSam''. He never does complete it, as [[TheQuietOne Evek]] interrupts him each time. Usually with bullets.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Susan's boss makes her go through this to get her paycheck. The questions, fortunately, are absurdly obvious (e.g. "Why should I give you a paycheck?"; "Because I work here.")

* Named for the scene in ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', which didn't just parody this, it [[ZigZaggingTrope zig zagged]] it (including in a DeletedScene). Heck, just referencing this would be enough for a trope on its own.
** For the record, the first two questions are constant: "What is your name?" and "What is your [[TheQuest quest]]?". After that, he'll often ask "What is your favourite colour?" but he's just as likely to throw curveballs like "[[UnexpectedlyObscureAnswer What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?]]," or "What is the capital of Assyria?"

** The Comic Book Guy uses this a few times on ''The Simpsons''. One time he says it when Lisa Simpson is alone on a bus, scared and desperate for someone to sit with. But not that desperate.

* Trisha, a sphinx in ''Literature/AFantasyAttraction'', tries to pull a 'you must answer these questions three' bit, only to get one answered. Which wasn't supposed to happen. So she increases the amount of questions to three ''hundred''.
