* This is apparently starting to become Ray's schtick in RoosterTeeth's LetsPlay series with the phrase "Is there fall damage?". This stems from an LP of "Trouble in Terror Town" where he leaps off a roof and asks, mid jump, that phrase. [[spoiler:There is and he dies, leading the terrorists to win that round.]]

** Also in his ''PokemonColosseum'' Let's Play, he confuses Dakim's Camerupt and says that now that it's confused, let's hope it does something stupid. Camerupt then used Earthquake, taking out Dakim's Shadow Entei.

* In the ''WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}'' video [[http://blip.tv/retsupurae/the-most-shameful-thing-in-the-world-5020223 The Most Shameful Thing In The World]], slowbeef comments that the video, which is of an anime fan coming up with attacks for a ''{{MUGEN}}'' sprite, just couldn't get any worse. Cue [[LigthNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Hare Hare Yukai]] dance.

* [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment The Spoony One]] sang a parody of RobVanDam's entrance music during one of the first episodes of ''Wrestle! Wrestle!'', with cheesy lyrics about himself ("Duh-da-duh-da-duh! It's time for the Spoony One's! Duh-da-duh-da-duh! Wrest-ling show!"), then remarked "Watch people ask me to make that the theme song." You get three guesses as to what ''WW'''s theme song is, and the first two don't count.

* It seems that when anyone tries to review the godawful ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' film, it is almost a requirement to suggest that it won't be as bad as it's made out to be ( like RiffTrax and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, with the latter providing a [[Quotes/TemptingFate quote]]). In the case of the Critic, not less than 15 seconds after saying so, he tries (and fails) to pop a cyanide pill.

* Occurs all the time in the ''ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum''. Whenever an agent says anything along the lines of "At last, a break from badfic." or "Now I can catch some sleep." he/she/other/it get sent to another mission. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by references to the "Laws of Narrative Comedy". If a mission is described as appearing "not too bad", it will rapidly get worse.

* Jim Sterling in his ''WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}}'' article [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/jimquisition/4966-Hate-Out-Of-Ten "Hate Out Of Ten"]]. After a rant on gamers whining about how [[EightPointEight a rating of 8 out of 10 for a highly anticipated game is not a good enough score]], he nervously asks "At least we're not criticizing 9's, at least now. Right? Yeah?" Cue a blog criticizing Games Radar for giving ''TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' a 9.

* Web serial novel ''[[TheRaptureLogs OH GOD THE RAPTURE IS BURNING]]'' starts the entire epic story with a sentence that sums up everything you need to know about TemptingFate: "Rapture's nothing but bullshit." The title of the story comes from almost the very next sentence, so you can imagine how that turned out.
