** The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' spoof "Wizards in Heat" has Dumbledore portrayed as African-American, to the initial confusion of Harry. Come ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', and an ''HP'' character usually portrayed as white -- Hermione, in this case -- really does become played by someone of African descent.

** The Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}} are more {{Jerkass}} like than heroic, but most especially Franchise/{{Superman}}. The other members of the group have other characteristics played up.

** Similarly, the already-dark joke about [[spoiler: the murder-suicide of Huey, Dewey, and Louie's [[DisposableSexWorker mother-turned-hooker]] in "Duck Duck Party"]] was given new life when [[WesternAnimation/Ducktales2017 the reboot]] is ''actually'' going to be dealing with that very plot thread - hopefully it won't end as badly.

** In that same sketch, there's a bit with Ang Lee TemptingFate about the possibility of ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' being his CareerKiller. Later that year, ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' came out, which was a huge WinBackTheCrowd after the poor reception of ''Hulk.''

* UnexpectedCharacter: Judging by the comments in for the SDCC 2017 trailer, ''nobody'' anticipated the ''Franchise/HomestarRunner'' cast making an appearance on the show.

** Season 5 is almost universally agreed upon by fans of the show as the absolute low point of the series, since it seemed that the entire focus of that season was to be as [[CrossesTheLineTwice blatantly offensive as humanly possible]] at the expense of actual comedy. Nearly every sketch was horrifically insulting and in poor taste. Thankfully the creators got the hint, and season 6 has seen a massive improvement all around.

** The "Grand Theft City" sketch, where [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario and Luigi]] go to [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto Liberty City]]. In late 2016, the Nintendo Switch was announced, and among the games included in the presentation was ''Super Mario Odyssey'', in which Mario explores a big city.

** 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]].

*** This becomes HilariousInHindsight as of ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', where [[spoiler: a mook manages to ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kill Goku outright]]'' with a gun. Granted, it was a laser gun when his guard was down, but still..]]

** 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.
