* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime indulges in this with its {{Filler}} episodes. Especially notable because 75-90% of the show is filler (depending on the season). The whole plot structure revolved around [[WackyWaysideTribe Wacky Wayside Tribes]] in the second generation, though the writers vary the conflicts later on.

* The OVA of ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'' had them meet a WackyWaysideTribe, presumably set during the two minutes you spend crossing the ocean to get to the center island in the game just before heading to Celestia the first time.

* The ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' films are filled with these. The first film has the CrazySurvivalist dodos and the trip through the ice cave. The second features a literal WackyWaysideTribe of mini-sloths who make Sid their [[GodGuise "Fire King"]] and the vultures singing "Food, Glorious Food." And there's Scrat and his acorn.

** In addition, the third season mostly took place in space and on alien worlds, rather than on Earth the way it had in the first two, so putting things {{IN SPACE}} set up this transition.

* The film ''Ator l'invincibile 2'' (1984) contained a sequence right in the middle involving a tribe of cannibals. Oddly enough, the USA DVD release (''FilM/CaveDwellers'') was titled after the WackyWaysideTribe. This film richly deserved the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] treatment it received.

** "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.

** "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.

** Later [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in the next two arcs, in which the Tribe and their relationship with the Clans turns out to be very important to the story and backstory.

* Commonplace in the ''Franchise/{{Grandia}}'' series.
** Though most villages are benign, there are some seriously weird examples in [[VideoGame/{{Grandia}} the first game]], such as Laine where the horned giantesses do all the work while mature males turn into bovines, and Gumbo, where every year, the villagers sacrifice two lovers to the volcano and, because of this, nobody in the village becomes a couple in fear of being sacrificed. When Justin and Feena arrive in Gumbo the village chief mistakes them for a couple and [[FalseReassurance rolls out the red carpet for them]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'': The Helmacrons. Twice. They show up out of nowhere. They're originally not dangerous enough to threaten the main characters - then they shrink everyone and suddenly what was supposed to be five minutes of ridiculousness becomes (in two separate books) an entire plot line just to get rid of them.

* In the ''StrontiumDog'' "Max Bubba" storyline, Johnny and his Vikings are at one point waylaid by a group of [[ImAHumanitarian man-eating]] trolls who kill a few {{redshirt}}s, but are never mentioned after escaping.

* The first few ''{{Spellsinger}}'' novels were episodic, but still possessed a plot. Later ones ... not so much. Most obvious in the sixth, which features so many escapes from cannibal tribes that [[LampshadeHanging even one of the characters complains about the monotony.]]

* A lot are spread across the solar system in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge''. Some good examples include the Northern Mountain Women of Venus, whose ranks include the storm riders, and the Rheans, Venusians who managed to get a Erisian space ship working and land on Saturn's moon Rhea. Many of these are self contained and might appear once in a season and never be seen or heard from again.
