* ''ComicBook/ArneAnka'', has an episode where the titular character, an anthropomorphic duck for the record, has been invited to a wedding but has a problem finding anything formal to wear for it. After digging through his wardrobe, all he is able to find is an old sailor suit, but after trying it on, Arne observes that he cannot not show himself in public wearing it as it makes him look highly reminiscent of [[WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck a certain other anthropomorphic duck]], and he would likely get sued. And indeed, Creator/{{Disney}} had previously [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope threatened the comic with a lawsuit]].

** Upon seeing that the video game in which they're fighting against the Warbeasts' representation looks like it's in Tokyo, Sora and Shiro are briefly thrown into a crippling HeroicBSOD, believing that it's their world, where they're {{NEET}}s unable to go outside. After snapping out of it, Sora tries to convince Shiro that it's a video game, like "[[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Pers*na]] or [[VisualNovel/SteinsGate Stein's G*te]] or [[VideoGame/AkibasTrip Akiba Str*p]]", while characters from the games(Chie, Kurisu and Kati) appear with black strips over their eyes.
