* On the gaming front, it's never too soon for the internet! At least as far as flash goes. Anyone who frequented {{Newgrounds}} in the following days was privy to many Trade Center parodies already, those which survived landing squarely in the Bastard category of flash games/movies. Among these was the infamous ''WTC / NYC Defender'', later deleted to make room for the finished product a couple months down the line. However, the game's main site took it down for the usual reasons, [[http://www.pcworld.com/article/62064/collapsed_building_ad_yanked.html as pointed out in this Sep1401 article.]] Yes, it really ''was'' made that soon. Eventually requested NG removal when they began trying a more serious angle. Of similar note is a flash game revolving around that one Marine who [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/428892 lobbed a puppy.]] For anyone that missed ''WTC Defender'', you had to shoot down hundreds of planes flung at the trade centers as if launched by catapult. Due to the oddly random scoring system, many surmised it represented the amount of people per plane. Ironically the far more offensive [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/53017 fly a plane into the trade center]] remains, as the author never asked for it removed.

* An episode of ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' which aired in November 2001 featured footage of The Pentagon; at the next regularly scheduled break, host Alex Trebek explained to viewers the episode had been filmed prior to September 11. Jeopardy! champion Kevin Laude's one win, slated to air September 11, never aired in its run in most of the country, until it reran on GSN for the first time in June 2005. Ramsay Campbell's fifth and final game also did't make it to air (it didn't affect much, since he lost and despite Alex's reassurances that he could make the Tournament of Champions that Brad Rutter won, it was impossible for him to qualify due to the long split between that tourney and the 2000 tournament in Atlanta seeing MORE than 15 retired champions [[note]] a few of which were through the other tournaments; several of these champions, including Mark Dawson, who qualified, had to wait until the 2003 tournament to reappear on the show, with one champion being on the waiting list until 2004 [[/note]], leaving no room for 4-time champions; Campbell has not reappeared on ''Jeopardy''.)

* Comic books ''depicting'' the attacks respectfully started in November 2001 with ''Amazing Spider-Man'' volume 2 #36, by Creator/JMichaelStraczynski. Artist John Romita Jr. expressed sentiments very similar to the ones above by Denis Bajram.

* A Spider-Man/X-Force comic crossover in the early '90s had part of the WTC destroyed by supervillains. Try finding it now. Notably, it was the last of Todd [=McFarlane=]'s run before he jumped ship to ImageComics.

* Pre-September 11 episodes of ''Series/TheLateShow'' with ''DavidLetterman'' included a joke about New York in the opening. Post-September 11 episodes simply described the show as being broadcast from "the greatest city in the world. "

* Pretty much any film adaptation which originally had Islamic terrorists as the antagonist in the source material. In ''Film/TheSumOfAllFears'', the antagonist was changed to a neo-Nazi. In ''Film/{{Jumper}}'', it was changed to a bunch of crazed Christians, etc.
