Mundane Utility / Music

  • The song "Boss Death" by Valshe features a Sword and Sorcerer pair who have grown apathetic toward their status as heroes. At one point, the lyrics mention them using a sword that can cut mountains to peel apples and a spell that can boil away the world's oceans to light a furnace.
  • In "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Everything You Know is Wrong", the narrator is offered the chance to travel through time to any point in history...and chooses the previous Thursday night, in order to pay his phone bill on time.
  • In "Who Wants to Join Our Superhero Team? (Right Now, It's Just Me & Jim)" by The Gothsicles, the leader can shoot energy beams from his finger, which he used to remove tattoos.
