* TheAbridgedSeries: ''WesternAnimation/WhatsOperaDoc'', described by [[Creator/ChuckJones it's creator]] as "an attempt to squash the entire fire ring trilogy into six minutes." It is, by all accounts, one of the most famous examples of this trope.

* AssholeVictim: Mime. He used Siegfried as a pawn to get Fafnir's treasure, originally the treasure of Mime's brother Alberich, and intended to kill Sigefried once through poisoning him once the boy had killed the dragon. Naturally, very few feel anything for evil-hearted Mime once he has been killed by noble Siegfried.
