[[AC: ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'']]
* In [[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-28404/DianeCastle+Xendra.htm Xendra]] ever since Halloween where he went as Xena, Xander's unable to go a week without being turned into a teenage version of Xena (named Xendra). At first it's due to a law of magic that if magic has had a given effect on someone before, it's more likely to do so again, especially if it's had said effect multiple times. Later it's because Xendra's a better fighter than Xander.
** Starting in Season 3, this extends to Wesley being turned into a woman when exposed to magic due to a spell that should have killed him and Xander instead turning Xander into Xendra and thus turning Wesley into a woman as well.

--> '''Clopin''': Good, but with a pinch. "PAHHH~~." Did you hear how that was tightly nasal? That's how it should sound, with a slight bit of nasality at the end, almost as if you're holding your nose while saying it. Just remember that it should sound like "pang" without the "-ng." Then, all you have to do is push the air out through the nasal cavity while saying it and you're good to go!

go! [[note]] You DON'T actually push air through the nasal cavity to pronounce a nasal vowel. You instead have to lower the soft palate in order to do so. [[/note]]

* In Fanfic/PokemonOpalAndGarnet, there is a common running gag in which Kaylie's Touceet, Clopin (yes, he's named for the character in the Disney version of HunchbackOfNotreDame), continually gets his name mispronounced, usually as "klop-pin." He will always be quick to correct them: "kloh-PAH~(n)," with the name ending in a Kalosian (French) nasal vowel. Many people and Pokemon have trouble with this, so usually "kloh-PAH" is accepted as being "close enough"- or, in [=PokeLatin=], "künek sjine." However, he will explain to them the (approximately) correct pronunciation of the Kalosian nasal vowel, as shown in this scene from "A Very Rocky Start":
--> '''Clopin''' (''to Rocky''): Don't get it? Allow me to show you, then. Take the ending- that "PAH" part that you said- and give it a sort of nasal pinch. Another way you could think of it is like the word "pang," but without the "-ng" at the end. Go on, just try it.
--> '''Rocky''': "PAH."

[[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....

** 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.

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.
