* Played with in an episode of ''DanVs'' Dan is convinced that a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent wolfman]] scratched his car, due to incriminating sneaker-and-pawprints. When his friend points out that wolfmen don't run on all fours in the movies, Dan tells him this isn't a movie, it's real life. However, he later chides his friend for forgetting about the full moon needed for a transformation by saying, "Don't you watch movies?"
