* In the ''WebAnimation/BravestWarriors'' episode "Butter Lettuce," Danny uses the Holojohn to load up a version of Beth with the request that she be "30% sexier than normal." He then follows this up with a version that is 40% sexier, which is then followed by a version that is ''[[ReadingsAreOffTheScale 9000%]]'' sexier. [[spoiler: The last one [[EldritchAbomination doesn't end well.]]]]

* [[http://www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/2492884/Furry+Chart/ This funny chart]] is intended to measure the "[[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism furriness]]" of something. It's a heavily abridged version of a less comical and lesser-known image that does much the same thing -- depicting what different "percentages" of cat traits look like, from fully human to fully cat. The full version has many more examples of different percentages.

Added DiffLines:

** Averted with Gaige's "20% Cooler" skill, though, which does actually modify your skill cooldowns (although there's no value where it changes it by exactly 20%).
** ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'''s trailer claims it's "1000 Degrees Hotter" and has "96.5% more WUB WUB" (although since ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' contained ''no'' "WUB WUB" even just Claptrap's chanting "wub wub wub DROP" would count).
** A handful of skills have an arbitrary number thrown in just for chuckles, such as "+100% Multi-Kill".

Added DiffLines:

* Often invoked in modern sports where the term 'give 110%' has become something of a cliche. Aside from the vagueness of what the athletes are supposed to be giving, as noted above, by definition 100% is everything a person can give.

Added DiffLines:

** Kind of odd, though, mixing metric prefixes with [[IncrediblyLamePun Troy units.]]

Ah, statistics... The ally of mathematics, business and hard science. [[LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics How infallible]]. There seems to be a problem here though... What instrument can you use to measure "awesome", for example? How do you calculate a 14% drop in sadness? And then there are the ''units'', often measured using an AbstractScale -- how many millisobs do you need to get one kilocry?[[note]]Assuming there are one thousand sobs in a cry, it would be one million times--"kilo" refers by definition to "thousands of" and "milli" refers by definition to "thousandths of."[[/note]]
