** Aika making deliveries/working in increasing unlikely places. Not only does she work at Aiya, make a delivery in the middle of a chase scene, and bring food to the protagonists on top of a mountain in the middle of the school camping trip, but she also has a job at a noodle shop at Tatsumi Port Island and at the Amagi Inn. They try to explain away the job at Tatsumi Port Island, but by the Amagi Inn episode, [[RuleOfFunny the writers stopped caring.]]
** SceneryCensor: In addition to CensorSteam, episode 20 uses this to hide the girls' lady bits from the audience. There are many, many conveniently positioned arms. At one point, a washtub held at a funny angle is used to hide [[spoiler: Naoto]]'s entire upper half.

* ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'': Rosette [[{{Tsundere}} violently]] responding to something Chrono said, normally meant to be a barb by him, but not always. The manga also has Satella flirting with Chrono because she "[[{{Shotacon}} likes younger boys]]" and Joshua [[PickyEater hating carrots]].

* ''Manga/CityHunter'':
** Kaori's Hyperspace Mallet and Ryo's Mokkori, with all possible variants.
** The ones mentioned above continue for the entire series, but most arcs have their own exclusive running gags, like the Ryujin boss being compared to a tanuki (even by his daughter!), or a fashion designer friend of Kaori trying to hire particularly good-looking people as models (including Saeko while she was trying to arrest her. Poor Saeko fell on the floor when she realized it was this and not an attempted bribe) and criticizing bad taste in clothing (including that of the Big Bad of the arc, twice).

* Merely mentioning the words "small" or "short" or any synonyms thereof around Edward Elric of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' will make him [[BerserkButton start ranting and]] [[RantInducingSlight raving about the insult]]. Whether it [[OverusedRunningGag happens too much]] is up to you.

* Hazumu's father's attempts to photograph her naked in ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl''.
** And his attempts to get her to bathe with him. And his inevitably getting beaten senseless by his wife as a result. And the alien showing up at strange times. And Asuta getting knocked about. And Namiko-sensei's speeches about 'having no boyfriend for 35 years', and the inevitable fall that follows. The show has a lot of running gags.

* And while on the subject, Ryōga from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' has [[NoSenseOfDirection getting lost]] as a major character trait. As Ryōga is an incredibly fit and highly durable martial artist, he is capable of getting ''very'' lost, even finding himself in other countries (or even other hemispheres) while trying to travel between two points in Japan. Whenever Ryōga demands to meet Ranma at a specific place and time, he will show up a week late, which is invariably when Ryōga finally finds the place.

* The first ''Anime/SailorMoon'' anime has many: Ami's obsession with studying, Makoto's always comparing boys to her ''sempai'', Minako's always getting proverbs wrong, Usagi's appetite and unwillingness to study and Rei & Usagi always fighting are only some, and a ''literal'' Running Gag; Usagi being late to school. One that's ''especially'' funny is how [[TheScrappy Chibi-Usa's]] scepter ''never'' works the first time, a joke used a few times during the S season, with ''even the daimons stopping confused'' and once in the subsequent season, [=SuperS=].

** And then there's the ultimate running gag - Team Rocket's [[ATwinkleInTheSky ubiquitous exits]].
*** This gag finally ended when they TookALevelInBadass, and they just rocket off themselves when the twerps beat them. After the Unova League, old habits die hard.
*** In Sun and Moon this is seemingly replaced by Bewear grabbing Team Rocket before a blast-off and taking them to its den. One time it happened even when Team Rocket weren't in any danger; in fact they were actually, legitimately ''winning'' for once.
** There's always one instance of Team Rocket (James especially) getting duped into buying a useless Pokémon from the Magikarp Salesman. The gag actually stopped in Black and White, and hasn't returned since.
** And Brock [[OverusedRunningGag flirting with every girl older than him but younger than his mother]].
*** And subsequently getting pulled away by Misty/Max/his Croagunk.
*** This specific gag was so overused that it ends up being exploited at least twice. Once to determine which Officer Jenny was an impostor and another time to get Croagunk to free him from an Ariados's String Shot.

** Wobbuffet and Psyduck popping out of their Pokeballs at inopportune times. Psyduck loves to do it when Misty's trying to call out another Pokémon in battle, and Wobbuffet pops out when Team Rocket's trying to do their evil stuff or say their motto or whatever.
*** 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.

** In Kanto there was the one where Meowth would claw Jessie and James' faces. This has since been dropped (alongside most Pokemon-on-human violence), however Meowth has done it a few times in later seasons.

* The [[AllThereInTheManual Sound Stages and Comics]] of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has a few, such as Shamal's cooking skills ("[[LethalChef Shamal is not a bad cook!]]"). In the series proper, we have [[AccidentalMisnaming Vita's inability to remember Nanoha's name]], which subverts the three times rule [[FirstNameBasis by getting it right by then]].
