* One of Lucy's personality-cementing moments in ''{{Peanuts}}'' is the famous trick of pulling a football away from Charlie Brown optimistically trying to kick it ([[http://assets.amuniversal.com/61ef10401dc7012ea5ca00163e41dd5b He managed it once...with hilarious results.]]. The actual frequency of this gag has more to do with the sheer length of the strip; Schultz specifically commented he only did these strips once a year at most to make sure the joke stayed fresh and keep Lucy from appearing ''too'' nasty. So she did it 48 times in 17,000+ strips.

* Creator/HowardChaykin regards his ''[[Comic Book/MarvelStarWars Star Wars]]'' comics as a combination of this and OldShame.

--> '''Chaykin:''' I'm on record everywhere regarding this I'd like to think that had I known it was going to be that big a deal, I would have done a better job. That work will haunt me to my grave, diminishing the value of the actually good and true work I've produced in the past forty odd years. I figure my ''NYT'' obit will read "HOWARD CHAYKIN DIES; FUCKED UP ''STAR WARS'' COMICS AND REALLY NOW, WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE HE DID, RIGHT?"

** In ''MarvelUltimateAlliance 2'', this is the ''one thing'' that [[CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]], [[HeterosexualLifePartners of]] '' all'' ''[[LikeAnOldMarriedCouple people]]'', mocks and throws back in [[GreaterNeedThanMine Tony's face]] in one particularly gut-wrenching scene.

* [[Comicbook/{{Agent 13}} Sharon Carter]], who had a long and storied history as a major figure in Captain America's mythos as well as becoming director of SHIELD for a time, is mostly remembered for being the woman who killed CaptainAmerica. She was brainwashed, and later lead the charge to bring him back to life, neither fact is as well remembered.

** Surprisingly, the one thing everybody ''does'' let her live down is the time she [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale molested Wonder Man]] during her FaceHeelTurn in ''West Coast Avengers''. Keep in mind this was over a decade before she destroyed the Avengers or depowered most of the mutant population, but no one, in or out of universe, ever brings it up when discussing Wanda's horrible actions.

** It was difficult for [[WonderGirl Cassie Sandsmark]] to live down the period of volume 3 where Geoff Johns and every writer after seemed to turn her into an increasingly catty, abrasive and overbearing team member who was supposedly powerful and leader material, but condescending and demanding to her teammates and who took up screentime from other characters. Then there was the time that she and Supergirl hijacked that plane during "Amazons Attack" and kidnapped a president...

* The time that Doctor Doom was defeated by SquirrelGirl, when the ultimate scheming badass of the Marvel Universe got owned by somewhone who was essentially a joke---[[RunningGag GAK!]] '''SILENCE TROPER! IT WAS A DOOMBOT. A DOOMBOOOOOOOOOOOT!!'''
** For that matter, {{Thanos}} will always have a defeat at the hands of SquirrelGirl on his record forever. Yes, the guy who killed half the universe in one stroke.

** The second part is subverted in ''TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' - when John gets powers, he becomes Colonel Jupiter, following one of the comics from the pre-Man-Wolf period.

* Umar was always a pretty intimidating enemy of ComicBook/DoctorStrange and first to make him consider rejecting his ThouShaltNotKill principle, back in the middle of TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, no less, and later was often an important player in the struggle between Strange and Dormammu. However, she will never live down the fact she once raped the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk.
