* Literature/PerryRhodan is called "Heir of the Universe" (even more so in the comics). Whoever owns the universe probably hasn't died yet. It's possibly a metapher anyway.

* In the alternate timeline detailed in HarryTurtledove's {{Timeline-191}} series, America gets involved in a conflict called The Second Mexican War in the 1880s. Despite its name, the war wasn't fought against Mexico (unlike the First Mexican War) and only part of it took place South of the Mexican border. The war was fought between the United States and the Confederate States, and the part of Mexico where the fighting took place was technically part of the Confederacy at the time.

* The Incredibly Deadly Viper in ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents is one of the least deadly creatures in the animal kingdom (and not even an actual ''viper'' either, being described as something similar to an even more laid-back Burmese python). Uncle Monty named it that to play a joke on the Herpetological Society.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/RosemaryWells' young adult novel "Through The Hidden Door" falls afoul of this. The "Hidden Door" is only referenced midway through and is barely relevant to the plot, which is mostly about bullying and a cave.
