[[AC:''{{Discworld}}'']]
* Creator/AAPessimal wrote a kind of crossover short between the ''{{Discworld}}'' and ''Literature/GoodOmens''. In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6621206/1/The-Turtle-Moves The Turtle Moves]]'', Ponder Stibbons is tasked with closing down Project Chelonian, the ongoing Wizard research into "borrowing" the mind of the world turtle Great A'Tuin and finding out exactly what is going through his, or her, mind. Ponder discovers that the Turtle is in fact listening to The Music of the Spheres, the background harmony of the Cosmos, sufficiently slowed down to suit the brain-rhythms of a large slow long-lived creature. As with any other music playing on a sufficiently long journey, however, the waveforms have collapsed into [[Music/{{Queen}} scaramouches, fandangos, septuple seas of Rhye, and so forth]]. Which proves the truth of the running gag in ''Good Omens'' about tapes left in cars....

** During the Shining Armor Arc, a member of Shining's squad is ''literally'' named Running Gag. So naturally he has one, namely being attacked by a cat whenever he's near one...except the Luvcats, which he's terrified of.

** Every time Twilight Sparkle or a member of her family gives a lecture, a soapbox appears under their feet. Sometimes, they do it on purpose to use the box as a weapon, firewood, or some other reason.

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'':
** During the Shining Armor Arc, a member of Shining's squad is ''literally'' named Running Gag. So naturally he has one, namely being attacked by a cat whenever he's near one...except the Luvcats, which he's terrified of.
** Every time a pony throws up, they or someone else questions how it's biologically possible given ponies shouldn't be able to.
* ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/237978/how-trixie-somehow-saved-hearths-warming How Trixie (Somehow) Saved Hearth's Warming]]'':
** Trixie frequently says something with her normal grandiose boasting...only to then cut to her internal thoughts where her actual emotions are portrayed, which are generally what someone actually in her present situation would say in the predicaments she ends up in.
** During the section at the Rat King's castle, flower pots keep appearing, getting smashed, or being weaponized, to the point Vixen questions ''why'' a castle in the frozen north has so many. They later find an entire room ''full'' of them and Trixie questions the Rat King himself about it during their sword fight.

[[AC:''Series/MiraculousLadybug'']]
* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6326440 Chat's got Her Tongue]]'' has an in-universe example. Tikki has had to explain [[spoiler:Miraculous-bearing soulmates]] to so many Ladybugs, and dealt with so much romantic angst over the years that she just can't do it again without breaking into laughter. The present-day Ladybug- not being in on the joke- is distinctly unimpressed by this.
-->"What's so funny, Tikki?! This is serious!"
-->"I know, I know," Tikki gasped between giggles. "It's just that this happens every time."
