* A variation of this puzzle occurs in ''FatalHearts'', where you need ⅔ cup of flour but have only an 800ml cup and a 100ml cup. The puzzle's not too hard if you're good at conversions.

* An apparently more complex version of this classic puzzle appears at the end of ''SherlockHolmesVersusArseneLupin'', where you have to measure exactly 478cc of black powder with only 250cc, 80cc and 12cc containers at your disposal. I say apparently only, because [[spoiler:1×250 + 19×12=478, so you don't actually have to use the pour-bigger-into-smaller subtraction trick at all to solve it]].
