* In the ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' episode "The Longest Night", the Trotters are shopping when they're asked to go to the manager's office. They see a sign saying the millionth customer will get a thousand pounds, and assume that's them. Instead, they're accused of shoplifting. And then held hostage along with the manager and store detective by an armed robber. [[spoiler: It eventually transpires that this was all a plot by the manager and detective to take the money, with Del, Rodney and Albert as independent witnesses, but went wrong because the robber's watch (bought from Del) was slow, so he missed the safe's time lock. After everything's been resolved with no harm done as long as the Trotters don't spill the beans, Del suggests to the manager that maybe they ''will'' turn out to be the millionth customers after all...]]

* A RunningGag in ''ArchieComics'' seems to be that Jughead would always be this whether it's a restaurant or a grocery store. Thanks to Juggie being a BigEater, chances are those stores would wind up bankrupt at the end of the day.

* The vending machines for Marcus Munitions in the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series occasionally play with this. One of the randomly selected statements when you buy from one is, "You're my millionth customer! Don't let it go to your head."

* {{Zig Zagged| Trope}} a bit in the ''Anime/MegamanNTWarrior'' manga. There's a scene where Lan is told he's the one millionth customer of a restaurant, so he won a free helicopter ride as a prize. At this point, he and his friend Chaud are on the run from the government because of Megaman's new powers, which they fear. Once Lan goes up in the helicopter, he reveals that he knows that this whole "millionth customer" was a sham, and that this is an attempt to kidnap him and draw Megaman out, but he's willing to do it so that he'll see Megaman again. ''Immediately'' turned around, as he really has won the trip and this is a genuine prize, and the pilot has no idea who Lan is.
