- The Deadpool article was written as if Deadpool was narrating because one of the character's defining characteristics is how he has No Fourth Wall, so the idea was that if he addresses the readers in the comic books, it's only natural that he would do the same on his TV Tropes page. Then people proceeded to miss the joke when the style caught on, and as a result there are many pages dedicated to individual Marvel and DC characters that are written with No Fourth Wall, even if the character in question doesn't behave as such. Then it proceeded to extend into different works entirely, some missing the joke by an even wider margin, as characters with actual Fourth Wall attunement are missed out in favor of others.
- Rumor has it that Squirrel and Hedgehog is meant to bash and demonize the United States in favor of North Korea, but you'd never guess that. The Americans, portrayed by Bad Ass wolves armed with Frickin' Laser Beams and Glowing Eyes of Doom, are five different kinds of awesome compared to the North Koreans who are portrayed by wimpy little rodents. The Big Bad Lt.Col Fox Vixen is also popular enough, particularly with the Furry Fandom, to have spawned an entire slew of fan art from Americans praising her.
- The Conversion Bureau was written to explain Blaze's (the author) own hypothesis on why Equestria had no humans as well as Wish Fulfillment. Due to his lack of experience as a writer however, the story came off as incredibly misanthropic, and the mixture of the backlash he received as well as losing interest in the story altogether rendered it a Dead Fic; other authors came into the scene to write their own Recursive Fanfictions based off TCB, taking the basic framework of the story to espouse their Humans Are Bastards views.
- Some people need it explained to them that Friendship Is Optimal is supposed to be psychological horror, not Wish Fulfillment.
- Flask was originally created as a parody of similar web frameworks, implementing every bad design decision from other frameworks that the author could think of. He was quite surprised to learn that some people actually liked it, and asked him for the source code so that they could expand it.
