* In Creator/DavidEddings' ''[[Literature/TheElenium Domes of Fire]]'', Stragen takes the Styric Council to task for not being more proactive in the emerging crisis in Daresia. When one of the Councillors answers by calling him a bastard, he bears it no mind...because he literally is the illegitimate son of a nobleman. He then proceeds to point out he is also a swindler, murderer, and thief (since he is also the head of a thieves' guild): glibly implying that anything they could call him would not be insulting in the least.

* ''Videogame/Fallout4''. One of the sarcastic dialog options after searching through [[spoiler:Kellog's home]] with Nick Valentine yields us this jewel:
-->'''Sole Survivor:''' What? The ''Clockwork Dick'' is stumped?
-->'''Nick Valentine:''' It's ''Synth Detective'', jackass. If you're gonna be that way, you might as well get the make and model right.
