** ''Discworld/TheLastContinent'' is a bit of a stylistic throwback to the earlier books, and contains a lot of Rincewind stumbling into various parodies of [[LandDownUnder Australian]] culture before stumbling back out. Most of these (winning a sheep-shearing contest, inventing Vegemite, encountering spoofs of MadMax and Film/PriscillaQueenOfTheDesert) have no real bearing on the plot, but they collectively contribute to Rincewind becoming a sort of Ecksian folk hero.

** "Avatar Day" has the heroes visiting a ''really'' wacky village that hates the Avatar because Avatar Kyoshi killed their leader Chin the Great several hundred years ago. This is called out [[LampshadeHanging in universe]] as the worst town they have ever been too.

* The African boys in ''Film/DinosaurIsland''. Where did they come from? What role do they have in the overall plot? They seem to exist only to capture our heroes for a short while and laugh at their lack of knowledge of [[ManEatingPlant Man Eating Plants]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': Used to great effect with Master Payne's Circus of Adventure, a group mostly comprised of lesser sparks and other runaways hiding from the Baron and other threats in [[HiddenInPlainSight plain sight]]. The circus establishes the post-apocalyptic world the Other left behind and works Zeetha, Dimo, Oggie and Maxim into the main cast for the rest of the story.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'': The second party of the "Time is Money" serial, "The Duck Who Would Be King". On their way BackToTheFuture from OneMillionBC, Scrooge and company accidentally crash-land in the ancient oriental kingdom of Toupee and become involved in its internal politics. While "The Duck Who Would Be King" is considered an entertaining episode in its own right, it has next to no impact on the rest of the five-parter.

** "The Cave of Two Lovers" has a Wacky Wayside Tribe of what can only be the ''Avatar'' universe's equivalent of {{New Age Retro Hippie}}s (including one named Chong after famous RealLife hippie [[Creator/CheechAndChong Tommy Chong]]). The heroes travel with them through a cave, get lost, and use ThePowerOfLove (in the case of Aang and Katara) and guidance from giant [[MixAndMatchCritters badgermoles]] (in the case of Sokka and the hippies) to find their way out.

* Near the end of ''Film/DamnationAlley'', the protagonists stop on a gas station to see if there is gas to syphon for their AwesomePersonnelCarrier, and encounter a bunch of [[HillbillyHorrors irradiated hillbillies]] that wanted to kill them and rape the sole woman of the group (and are taken out with a well-aimed rock, a few headshots and the Land Master's [[StuffBlowingUp rocket launcher]]). They are the only human antagonists that appear on the entire film.
