** Palpatine in the Star Wars specials is portrayed as LaughablyEvil, in addition to being a {{Jerkass}} and [[SirSwearsALot a huge potty-mouth]]. Also, in the final special, he apparently gets a DeathEqualsRedemption fate (that or RedemptionEqualsDeath). And he was manipulated the entire time by one of his apparent {{Unwitting Pawn}}s; the ''true'' Dark Lord of the Sith... Darth [[spoiler: '''Jar Jar Binks!''']]

** In the ''GPS Dating'' sketch, Creator/ScarlettJohansson provides the voice of the navigation system attempting a relationship with her driver. This was seven years before she provides the voice of another [[Film/{{Her}} A.I. attempting a relationship with a human male]].

** There is a sketch where Grover of SesameStreet meets up with Hannah Horvath from ''Series/{{Girls}}'' and it's made clear that their lifestyles don't mesh; the finale of ''Girls'' has [[spoiler: Hannah giving birth to a baby boy named Grover and having to make some adjustments to function as a mother to him]].

** The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' sketch that parodied ''Series/BreakingBad'' took random scenes from the latter without any indication of knowledge of their context. Examples include Dumbledore (who is the stand-in for Walter White) being in his underwear for no explained reason (Walter only did it in one episode because he didn't want his clothes smelling like a meth lab), Ron getting half of his face blown off in a lab accident (when in the scene it was spoofing, the explosion was intentional so Walt could [[spoiler: get rid of Gus]]), the severed-head-turtle bomb, leading to [[spoiler: Dumbledore dying for getting shrapnel in his abdomen]] (which not only wasn't done by Walter, but wasn't [[spoiler: the cause of his death either]]).

* AcceptableTargets: Creator/LindsayLohan has almost constantly been the subject of parody on the show, and is depicted as a drunken person whose speech is made entirely out of a slurred screech.

** Seth Green's original version of "Work It Out" from the "Voltron Gets Served" sketch. (It's not aired anymore and it's not on the DVD, but [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes you can find it easily if you know where to look...]]).

** The "Grand Theft City" sketch, where [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario and Luigi]] go to [[Franchise/GrandThethAuto Liberty City]]. In late 2016, the Nintendo Switch was announce and among the games included in the presentation was ''Super Mario Odyssey'', where it takes place in a big city.

** The Lance Armstrong sketch where he dreams of becoming president of France if he wins the latest Tour De France, which ended in him cheating by kicking over a fellow biker. Few years after the sketch, it was revealed that he took steroids.
** When an Imperial Officer tries to rally his fleet to attack the rebels in retaliation for [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi blowing up the Death Star and killing Emperor Palpatine]], one of his peers shoots him down, citing that those two events [[InstantWinCondition means the Empire lost and they they all have to throw down their guns and go home]]. While the original ExpandedUniverse already turned this into a case of RealityEnsues, this trope hits even harder now that ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' is coming out, where The Empire still exists in some form despite the events of ''Jedi''.

** Goku carrying a handgun in one Christmas skit. Guns of almost any caliber are inane, insane jokes in the DB universe. Goku as a kid kicked missiles and rockets back at the ones who launched them. Buu's puppy and the farmer who greeted Raditz in the pilot are about it for gunfire casualties in almost 300 episodes.

** The "Children of Lego Men" skit had a gag with a Lego soldier forgetting to put on his pants. Cut to 2014 and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie''... "Honey, where are my paaaaaaaaaants?"
