- Examples from the Calvinverse:
- Done repeatedly in Can You Imagine That?.
Calvin: What're we going to do? Why is he chasing us? How will we escape? Where does this path lead? When will our bedtime be?

Hobbes: Of course, when I say 'big galoot', it means that you're handsome, intelligent, and, uh, both of your legs are the same length.
- Another example:
- From Calvin and Hobbes Get XTREME!:
Hobbes: We're raving from cold and starvation and lack of comic books.
- One gag in Calvin and Hobbes III: Double Trouble has the aliens smashing several of Calvin's mom's antiques, causing her to cry out every time. It ends with them destroying a clock worth about 50 bucks (compared to the fine china that was destroyed before). She reacts in exactly the same way.

- And from another episode:
Andy: Where do you suppose that (a door) leads to?
Sherman: I dunno. Dungeon, torture room, bloodthirsty zombie, the mansion's balcony.

- In a Naruto/Mahou Sensei Negima! crossover fanfic, Broken Faith by Kur0Kishi has this as well in a side mission unrelated to the main plot.
"Sorry, calling it a missive is an understatement. He sent a clone that somehow traveled 500 miles from here to our Main Headquarters in under 3 hours over land and water, bypassed all official channels and communication protocols, slipped through our ward scheme like it wasn't there and evaded 130 individuals affiliated with our Association, including our entire Security Force.

- The Metroid/Kamen Rider crossover fic Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations emphasizes this on Mitsuzane Kureshima's backstories. Considering that he is known for being the manipulative, lying, self-absorbed, cowering scumbag.

- In So Wrong, It's Right:

- In Never Had A Friend Like Me, Norm still hates Canada and occasionally magically torments the entire country. During one of Norm's attacks against Canada, he caused the place to be struck by earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, plagues of locusts, lightning, fires, glaciers, tornadoes, rampaging moose, and... he made the hockey players unable to skate in a straight line without falling.
- When listing some of the less moral people he's had as masters, Norm mentions dealing with "thieves, warriors, spies, murderers, psychopaths, and politicians."

While speculating about why Will doesn't like him, he says: "I don't know if it's some kind of latent homophobia, or that you don't really know what to do with me, or if you just don't want someone in the club whose hair is better than yours."
- The Sacred And The Profane: "...Caphriel had a bizarre tendency to get upset over the slightest things, like murder and rape and duck torture." Mostly used to show that, no, Zirah really doesn't see much difference in the levels of those crimes; why do you ask?
- You're Like, the Magic Twins or Something: Come up to Mabel and Dipper's annoyance. Demon magic and floating jewelry, fine, the Pines parents can take that... But no way are their kids getting tattoos, they’re teenagers for goodness sake!
- The fanfic One Wizard Too Many has a warning about the following: "Mayhem, destruction, and HHRnote ."
- A sort of 'reverse example' with Hermione's Badass Boast in The Parselmouth Of Gryffindor:

- In Royal Chances alternate-dimension Voldemort threatens to torture Umbridge for the scar on Harry's hand.
Harry: No Tom, you can't kill anyone. Nor can you chop them up into little pieces or water torture them or make them watch any cute children's movies that are really cute.
- In Harry Potter the Undead Slayer Harry, having been pulled from his foster family by the Goblet of Fire, threatens to begin "enhanced interrogations" if he doesn't get some answers pretty soon. Cedric unwisely asks what he means by that.
Harry: Thumbscrews, bamboo splinters, the rack, waterboarding, Justin Bieber music...though the last is banned in three galaxies.
- An Ancient Method of Torturing Males:
Hot needles under the fingernails, boiling oil being poured on unprotected flesh, literal salt rubbed into wounds, prolonged exposure to whiny teeny-bopper pop music; these were all things that he'd rather be going through at the moment than the torture he was now experiencing.

- In Kyon: Big Damn Hero, Kyon mentions casually to Sasaki that he has to meet several past instances of people, fight 12 thugs at once, arrange to deliver an alien artifact and study for a math test. It scares the crap out of adult Mikuru, but Sasaki doesn't take it seriously.
- During You Got HaruhiRolled!'s court case arc, Haruhi is on trial. When listing her charges, the prosecutor plays with this trope: Haruhi is accused of thievery (the most serious on the list, but mentioned first), being stupid and an asshole, as well as pushing a random passerby. This last one is treated as severe as the others, because Haruhi is unfortunate enough to be in a Kangaroo Court.
- Hivefled: The warnings page lists death, rape, incest, torture, body horror, cannibalism, necrophilia, and "dubious use of buckets". It Makes Sense in Context, though; said "dubious use" involves Bizarre Alien Biology and forced incestuous reproduction.

- In The Official Fanfiction University of Middle-earth: "Sauron would going to roast her for breakfast. He would make her grow long pointy nails. He would flunk her." (OK, the latter might be pretty bad for a fangirl, who'd have to leave Middle-Earth.)

- Whisper: Trixie apologizes to Twilight Sparkle and her friends for all the things she did in the story and in the episode "Boast Busters", including that she's sorry "for thinking that you were an evil sorceress and wanting you to be tarred and feathered or turned to stone or crushed by a garbage wagon or kicked in the shins."
- Getting Back on Your Hooves has a similar example when Trixie brings up her List of Transgressions from "Boast Busters" (first wondering why Rarity fixed her mane rather than take revenge and second apologizing to Rainbow, both times ending with the fact she bragged about it.
- Trixie: I called your mane a rat's nest, goaded you into a rigged contest, turned your hair into a disgusting green mess, humiliated you in front of the entire town, and then bragged about doing it! And before that I publicly humiliated two of your best friends!
Spike: Which you also bragged about.

The sink was filled with messy dishes, which Octavia suspected were several days, if not weeks, old. The walls were cracked, the ceiling was leaking in a few rooms, and the carpet didn’t match the drapes.

I hate playing the Big Damn Hero."
- In Ripples, Waves, Tsunamis, a One Piece fic, we have this:
Luffy: Of course I'm serious! This bastard broke on to our ship, our home, hurt Nami, almost drowned Chopper…and most importantly…HE STOLE ALL MY MEAT!
- Multiple examples from the One Piece Self-Insert Fic This Bites!:
- In the Christmas Episode, Wiper binds and gags Aisa and uses her as the replacement for their broken Christmas Star. What did she do to earn this? Sneaking out to Upper Yard to gather Vearth, accepting a gift of roasted almonds from the Skypiean Conis rather than fighting to the death as a Shandoran should, and using her Mantra to figure out where they were hiding the Christmas presents. That last one is what makes Laki think the punishment is appropriate.

- In Slut-Raven (a NSFW Teen Titans'' story on AdultFanfFiction.org), Raven's rant against her alternate self ends with this:
