* HarsherInHindsight: ''Treehouse of Horror XIX'' features Homer killing celebrities for commercial rights, among which include Neil Armstrong and Prince. This is hard to watch since both of them are now dead.

** Then you have Kang and Kodos, the two space aliens from the very first Treehouse of Horror segment [[ToServeMan "Hungry Are The Damned"]]. They've appeared in every special since (or not, which they ''will'' unhappily acknowledge) and have even made the odd appearances in the regular episodes.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: The post-SeasonalRot episodes ''stopped'' being scary and are instead just parodies of 'relatively new' movies and TV shows with ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''-esque sociopathic humor.

** The Gremlin's first appearance in ''Treehouse of Horror IV'' "Nightmare at 5 1/2 Feet" with green fur, a wide SlasherSmile and WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises. The worst part is the ending, where [[spoiler: it reappears on the back of the ambulance carting Bart off to the insane asylum... then holds up ''Ned Flanders' torn-off head'', complete with dangling, gore-slick spinal column, which gurgles Ned's famous greeting to Bart]]. Cue end of the episode.

** In the ''Treehouse of Horror X'' short, 'Life's a Glitch; Then You Die', a virus (in this case, the fabled Y2K Bug) causes chaos around all around the world upon computers, and computer-controlled devices starting from Homer's computer, [[spoiler: leading into the apocalypse.]] Around 10 years later, ''[[Anime/SummerWars Summer Wars]]'' would also have it's plot kick off by some guy's computer device accidentally triggering a virus, and causing havoc to devices around the world. [[spoiler: But the big difference here is that Kenji never unleashed it (he just got one letter off, and by being the first to respond, he was framed), it was Wabisuke's doing, and it doesn't end on the apocalypse.]]
