* Not a particularly funny (and actually a little tragic) example, perhaps more HilariousInHindsight: every time Leomon (or a [[PaletteSwap Leomon lookalike]]) shows up in a ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' series, he's either terribly abused or outright killed in short order.

This extended to the ''tri'' movies as well, where the Leomon from the first anime was killed off ''again''.



** To emphasize, we have Leomon/Saberleomon in Adventure, Leomon in Tamers, Leomon within the first three minutes in X-Evolution, Technically Koichi counts, having Loweemon as one of his forms, and there's [=IceLeomon=] too, [=SaberLeomon=] AND Bancholeomon in Savers, and in Xros Wars, [=MadLeomon=] [Who was a corrupted normal Leomon, who was also shwon revived at one point... and never showed up again, unlike the villagers he was with...], and Apollomon... Twice. And that's just in the main shows and movies, and not counting mangas. 10 dead Lions... possibly 11 if Leomon was killed off-screen in Xros Wars [Which, given how Leomon respond to evil, and the fact that Lillymon, one of the villagers, shows up later... is possible]

** The normally serious and {{Badass}} Roronoa Zoro [[NoSenseOfDirection gets lost any time he is left alone]]. Or when he's being led by other people, for that matter. This even extends to the Zombie that is possessed with his shadow. It sort of reached a crescendo post-TimeSkip when a ship suddenly appears sliced in two. Guess who's sitting in the crow's nest.

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'' the usually serious Kuroh starts blushing like a schoolgirl and uses his cassette to play the recorded voice of his former master, Ichigen Miwa, whenever his name comes up. It's always followed by Yashiro saying "Creepy!"
** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBhiq8uTj_U this]] radio drama Shiro is substituted with Fushimi Saruhiko who interrupts Kuroh's rambling about how wonderful Ichigen-sama this way.

*** Wobbuffet's interruptions are actually a fairly clever EasterEgg which is mostly LostInTranslation from the original Japanese version. In Japan Wobbuffet is called ''Sonans'', which can be interpreted as saying ''"that's the way it is"''. The implication is that the statement "that's the way it is" is what Wobbuffet is actually saying most of the time, making his seemingly-random interruptions make sense in context.
