* The hour-long [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4_U3Da_mwA 50th episode]] of [[WebVideo/ACoupleofCuntsintheCountryside A Couple of Cunts in the Countryside]], which featured interviews with past guest stars, a [[TopTenList countdown]] of the ten best episodes and previously unseen footage. It also served as the show's GrandFinale.
* From ''Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries'', the "very special episode" in this case was an episode of the ''Voltz'' mod, titled "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2ohslGivm8 The Bomb]]". In this episode, LetsPlay/{{Sjin}} and LetsPlay/{{Sips}} spawn in a series of red matter explosives... [[TooDumbToLive all so they can mine copper]]. [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds The server is nearly destroyed]]. In this case, the humour was still very much there, but had a slightly darker tone than normal.

* If potty-training episodes count, Pants Pankuro and Panpaka Pants are two other anime with these sorts of episodes, as well as the Franchise/HelloKitty and [[PreciousPuppy Cinnamoroll]] educational shorts that we're released in The90s and 2008 in Japan.

* ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' had a 2-part story about domestic abuse in the early 90's called "Crisis at Hand," deconstructing the days when Supes was a WifeBasherBasher from the early Golden Age comics, showing that early in his career when he once attempted to scare a man from beating his wife, only to later learn it failed and the man later ''killed'' her the next time he got violent; in the present day when he learns that one of his neighbors is the victim of abuse, Clark tries to find a way to help her without setting her husband off worse. Considered one of the better cases of a "very special issue" and was actually brought up a few times afterward in the Superman books.

* Website/{{Cracked}} has an article called [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19105_6-comics-that-covered-serious-issues-failed-hilariously.html "6 Comics That Covered Serious Issues And Failed Hilariously."]] As is probably quite apparent from the title, the article explores the FridgeLogic of some of these attempts at Very Special Episodes.

* Since the first wave, the stories of ''Toys/HeroFactory'' amount to this if the animated series is anything to go by and the Fire Lord arc is a drug PSA using fuel as a metaphor for drugs, and the Witch Doctor arc is about environmentalism.

* ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel''. One word: [[http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20080602 Miscarriage.]] This set off a slew of mockery and debate, including biting parody from [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/108-Webcomics Zero Punctuation]] and [[http://www.vgcats.com/cadaprilfools/ VG Cats.]]
