* Used in a surprisingly dark and serious manner in ''WebComic/OrderOfTheStick''. When the gods were weaving together the world from the fabrics of reality, their bickering and fighting over how they wanted aspects of the world resulted in the fabrics getting tangled together, eventually form the Snarl.

* As video game projects and their budgets grew bigger, so did the number of people working on a video game. It is not unheard of to have several dozen or even 100+ people working on one video game nowadays, yet a good chunk of them are either seen as mediocre or filled with glitches and bugs while ExecutiveMeddling can muck things up even further. TheNewTens saw a surge in indie games developer by a small group of people and sometimes developed by just a single person, causing many critics to give such games a ton of praise since less people means less interference and no meddling from publishers.

* Exploited by Dr. Bowman in ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}''. When designing the [[UpliftedAnimal Bowman's Wolves]], [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2600/fc02539.htm Dr. Bowman wanted]] them to be completely capable of free will, with their [[RestrainingBolt human safeguards]] being more like guidelines than actual rules, while some of his human co-workers wanted the safeguards to have certain dogmatic overriding limitations. However, they couldn't agree on ''which'' limitations were needed, and Dr. Bowman encouraged them all to consider their idea the only acceptable one, until the project ran out of time and none of them could be implemented at all, just like he wanted.

* Used in ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'', where Rudy and Penny are trying to design a robot, but because they have different views on how it should work (Penny wants it to be helpful, Rudy wants it to be a superweapon), the design turns out a mess and after being erased, it goes on a helpful/destructive rampage in chalkzone. Even worse, Rudy's [[ArchEnemy archenemies]] Scrawl and Craniac discover it and decide to use it in a scheme they were concocting.

** In another episde, while making omelettes Edd uses a spoon to take a small amount of butter from a stick. Eddy thans him and takes the stick. Eddy has a habit of not measuring ingrediants in cooking and simply using as much of it as he can find.
