* In ''TheAngryBeavers'', Norbert forgets to chew to keep his teeth short and when his forest friends discover his long dentures, they all follow suit with it. The same goes for Dagget later, and they both suffer for it by having their teeth grow long enough to bind them.

* ''TheSimpsons'' did it in "Simpson Tide", in which Milhouse gets an earring that everyone else in school thinks is cool, so everyone starts getting one. Bart gets his, much to Homer's outrage. Bart later gives Homer the earring before embarking on a nuclear submarine with the Naval Reserve. The earring ends up becoming the ChekhovsGun that saves the submarine from sinking.

* The episode "Dressed To Kill" from ''MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' dealt with this. [[AlphaBitch Brit and Tiff]] are infuriated when XJ-9/Jenny manages to one-up them in terms of fashion sense. As the girls prepare for their prom, their gowns turn out to be made from Pip Crystals unknowingly lost by Smytus. It's soon discovered that said crystals [[AppliedPhlebotinum give them]] [[StockSuperpower superpowers]]. Naturally, they try to enact their revenge on Jenny until they discover that a new fashion statement has rolled in, causing them to abandon their dresses in horror. A later episode ("Victim of Fashion") has the two engaging in a fashion war with Jenny once more.
* In ''{{Doug}}'', TheProtagonist in a ShowWithinAShow called [[TeenDrama "Teen Heartstreet"]] wear [[LimitedWardrobe the same outfit Doug wears]]. Originally, Doug laughs this off, but the next day, everyone at school is wearing it. Doug spends the entire episode trying to reclaim his uniqueness...only for [[spoiler: [[HereWeGoAgain Skeeter's outfit to become the next big thing.]]]]

Trends are often considered the come-and-go "necessary evil" of human culture. Whether they're [[PopularityPolynomial locked in a cycle]] or they [[DeaderThanDisco plain old wither and die forever]], they help define specific moments in history, [[VindicatedByHistory for better]] [[UnfortunateImplications and worse]]. So it only makes sense that InUniverse examples of trends exist in fiction.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', protagonist Jerin Whistler is too sensible to follow any trends, but his sister Corelle insists he needs to wear tight trousers with a codpiece, as that's the latest fashion. She gets her wish, as Jerin is invited to court, along with some of his sisters, for his coming out in society. All the fashionable clothes do is attracting attention that Jerin would rather not have. The tailors who make his and his sisters' clothes for the ball tell them that there's a new fad every two weeks or so at court. The Whistlers think it is pretty silly, and immediately make plans to sell their new clothes before they return home, as what is fashionable at court is unwearable elsewhere, the textile used would be ruined by ''rain''.

* ''FraggleRock'' had an episode in which some young Doozers took up pogo stick jumping, despite the fact that jumping gives Doozers the hiccups, which makes them unable to work. One Doozer decides to stop and is shunned by the others, but in the end he ends up saving them after they get the hiccups and cause a building collapse.

*** The same plot was recycled when Otto Sump came out with his new line of delicious food products, Gunge. Yes, it tastes as good as it sounds with food names like "Mold Jam", "Slime Sauce", "Bacteria Soup", "Maggot Steak", etc. His logic was that following the food shortages as a result of the Apocalypse War, people can look to his trash slop as a healthy source for nutrition. Justice Dept. effectively bans Gunge... and then [[FutureFoodIsArtificial rebrands the exact same trash as Foodstuff A, B, C, etc. for the people to eat]] to combat the food shortages.

* ''JudgeDredd'' has inspired ''tons'' of these in its approximately 30 years of existence, as the comic takes place in a [[CrapsackWorld future dystopia]] where most humans are practically permanently unemployed and take up unusual hobbies, trends, and activities to pass the time. A lot of them end up being banned or heavily regulated by Justice Dept. after a problem arises because of it; notable examples include:

* There were a couple of examples in ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''. The main ones being {{Mons}} Cards (which ended up becoming a currency) and a complex game that involved collectable tiles called "Jumbi" (which everyone became hopelessly addicted to).
