* ''Webcomics/{{Nebula}}'': Most comics begin with the intentionally vague "Really far away. Really long ago"[[note]]Or reversed-- "Really long ago. Really far away."[[/note]] over a shot of the main character(s) of that comic. Occasionally, this is changed:
** #9 and #17 have no opening at all and go straight to action.
** #12 is "Someday soon, [[FantasySequence one would hope]]"
** #15 is [[WhamEpisode "Right here. Right now."]]
** The comic with B and Virginis has [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent "Even further away than normal"]]

* Parodied on ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'', where time cards are always "14 HOURS LATER", especially if that amount of time passing makes no sense. One episode is so egregious about it, using the card six times, that the characters started wondering how it was still the same day.

-->"Sometime in the 23rd century ... the survivors of war, overpopulation and pollution are living in a great domed city, sealed away from the forgotten world outside. Here, in an ecologically balanced world, mankind lives only for pleasure, freed by the servo-mechanisms which provide everything. There's just one catch: Life must end at thirty unless reborn in the fiery ritual of carrousel."

* ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' has fun of this, particularly in its PilotMovie ''The Adventure Begins'' where it has certain scenes like the Little Green Men's homeworld being under attack titled as "Under Attack", followed by the text replaced with [[CaptainObvious "Obviously"]]; or with a later scene of Booster mopping up the floor of Star Command as "Star Command" and "Caution: Wet Floor" right as several Space Rangers run by.

* ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' has such titles that feels like they were wrote by teenagers. Little gems like "So Yeah", after Scott asks Ramona out; "24 Hours Later", after announcing that they were gonna play in, yeah, 24 hours; and "So Anyway", after [[spoiler: Scott defeats Gideon and rescues Ramona, and they talk about making it work again]].
