* In WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''Film/OsmosisJones'' had a parody of ''Film/InsideOut'' with other actors as his emotions. But instead of any character references, they mostly just fight about whether they ripped off the former movie or not.

* ''World's Finest'' #246-247 by "Zany" Bob Haney is an extremely [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age,]] entertainingly (if you're into [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs that kind of thing)]] insane story about Superman being framed for abusing his long-lost hunchbacked identical twin brother. Right. Not surprisingly, later stories did not reference it. However, [[MrExposition the plot is introduced]] by a little alien criminal guy named Ram Drood. We've never seen him before, but the JLA has apparently encountered him repeatedly and call him "the greatest space bum in all the galaxies!" We never learn what exactly he's done to earn himself that reputation, and he clearly lives his life on the shady side, and yet he also clearly isn't so villainous that JLA would feel obliged to haul him off to the SpacePolice or whatever, and they hear him out peacefully. In fact, he comes across as a fairly adorable and intriguing JerkWithAHeartOfGold who it would have been fun to see return once in a while, but unfortunately he's stuck in a story so ridiculous that no one wanted to revisit any elements of it.

* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' villains and AbusiveParents Zod and Ursa had their young child end up on Earth, where Superman and Lois Lane adopted him under the name Christopher Kent. The CharacterDevelopment and story potential opened up by Clark and Lois finally becoming parents was then wasted when Christopher got sucked into a YearInsideHourOutside dimension for a PlotRelevantAgeUp and wound up becoming just another minor character by the "New Krypton" arc. (He ''did'' get some further development during ''New Krypton'', though). Especially sad as the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' reboot came not too long after all this, so Christopher's change to the status quo would not have been permanent in any case. Chris eventually showed up at the end of Dan Jurgens' Rebirth run - as DaddysLittleVillain, with no one remembering the time when he lived with Clark and Lois anymore thanks to the events of ''SupermanReborn''.

* Wrestling/MickFoley said this about Wrestling/TakaMichinoku: "If the WWF was about talent, Taka Michinoku would have been WWF champion". Never happened because Taka isn't a tall steroid gobbling white bodybuilder.

** The Vahki made a huge impact on fans in the 2004 web animations and tv commercial, which portrayed them as merciless, extremely efficient and creepy law enforcers that keep the city in a constant ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''-esque state. They had powerful abilities, could show up everywhere, attacked in swarms, and being fully robotic, had no reason to care about their lives. This depiction never came up elsewhere; the comics, books and movie turned them into disposable {{Mooks}} easily beaten though convenient circumstances and barely ever using their powers. The writer [[CreatorsPest hated them so much]], he wrote them out of the story.

* ''Webcomic/VGCats'': To say the least, Ramsoomair's style was good back in the day. He made a number of jokes about ''StarFox'', but the only time anyone actually got to see how he would draw any of the characters aside from Slippy Toad was in the strip where [[YaoiFangirl Aeris]] imagines Fox & Falco having sex while making bad in-jokes... with Wolf presumably joining in later.
