** Goku carrying a handgun in one Christmas skit. Guns of almost any caliber are inane, insane jokes in the DBZ 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.
*** This becomes HilariousInHindsight as of ''DragonBallZResurrectionF'', where [[spoiler: a mook manages to ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kill Goku outright]]'' with a gun. Granted a laser gun when his guard was down, but still..]]

** The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' parody in season 6, despite the game having been out for 5 years and still extremely popular by the time the episode aired. The skit starts out promising with a recreation of the class selection screen, then it deviates a lot from the source material. The Demoman and Pyro are generic white mercs, when their defining traits is that the Demoman is the TokenMinority and the Pyro is TheFaceless, the characters all have realistic weapons when the game is well-known for its cartoonish art style, the Soldier and Medic both wield [=SMGs=], a weapon used only by the Sniper, and the Medic shoots the Nerd to death when they're on the same team; friendly fire ''is'' possible in-game, but it needs to be turned on by a server admin, and it never is due to the game's {{griefer}} population. A minor one is that the camera doesn't switch to third-person when the Nerd is killed.

** One sketch shows a [[BizarroEpisode completely nonsensical]] [[MissingEpisode lost fourth installment]] to ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. There are several reasons a fourth film couldn't exist, chief among them because the titular ring was destroyed in the third film.

** SantaClaus is either a drug lord or a badass that kicks Coco-Cola executives' asses for using his likeness without his consent. He is not ''jolly'' at all. In fact, Santa Claus should be feared in the Robot Chicken universe.

** Dr. Ball M.D.'s mockery of the consensus of Padme [["DeathByDespair losing the will to live"]] can come off as mean-spirited after the passing of Creator/DebbieReynolds, who was indeed distressed over the passing of her daughter, Creator/CarrieFisher just one day prior.
