* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' Season 3 premiere, we learn in a flashback that The Monarch used to work as Phantom Limb's henchman while moonlighting as The Monarch and seduced Dr. Girlfriend during this period. When Phantom Limb catches them in the act, he doesn't recognize him (as he's off uniform) and demands he identify himself. The Monarch then makes up the name "Manotaur" on the spot after [[LineOfSightName looking at the big "M" on the hood of the Monarchmobile]]. Phantom Limb is then summoned by the Council and before leaving tells "Manotaur" he is now on Phantom Limb's "shit list". The present Dr. Girlfriend, who is learning of this via video footage, claims it's impossible that Phantom Limb (probably the most competent and intelligent villain on the show) would be stupid enough to fail to recognize his own henchman. [[BrickJoke In the episode's epilogue]], we see [[spoiler:a still living but injured]] Phantom Limb descending on a retired, completely innocent, and looking-nothing-like-the-Monarch Manotaur...

* Rose of TwoAndAHalfMen is a StalkerWithACrush who goes to many extreme measures to stalk Charlie and/or get him to fall in love with her. Her plans have included staging a marriage to a [[InventedIndividual a groom who doesn't exist]], and moving to England while still returning to Malibu to observe Charlie in disguise. Such plans will be dismissed by both Charlie and the other characters because no one would be stupid enough to go to all that trouble (or, more accurately, [[RefugeInAudacity no one would be crazy enough]]; but of course, Rose really is obsessive enough to go to all that trouble.

* In the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' [[Webcomic/TeamFortress2 comic]] "Catch-Up", Saxton Hale says that "only a moron would live" in the area of UsefulNotes/NewMexico where most of the story takes place. The next panel features the Mann family, who settled the area, with Hale narrating with "Here's some morons who decided to live here."

The next panel story of the comic features the Mann family, who settled the area, with Hale narrating with "Here's some morons who decided to live here." While lampooning of New Mexico, it is mostly a piece of SelfReferentialHumor alluding to [[Main/SelfDeprecation Self-Deprecating Humor]] and lightly [[Main/TheRoast Roasting]] Team Fortress 2 publisher Valve's VideoGame/HalfLife series, which centered around the fictional Black Mesa Research Facility, located in New Mexico, where fictional genius [[UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} Seattleite]] protagonist Gordon Freeman presumably lived. The story eventually became a Main/{{Retcon}}."
