* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie'': One of the first persons that Captain Underpants "helps" is a mime doing the invisible box routine. Thinking he's trapped in an invisible force field, he tries to break it by punching it, hitting the mime in the face instead. George and Harold, watching from the sidelines, are thoroughly enjoying it.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' episode "Phobia Factor", it was revealed that Trent had an intense fear of mimes. He then spent most of the episode being chased by one.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}:'' Mr. Mime is among the most hated Pokemon among the fanbase. He is often given as a example of a "bad" Gen 1 Pokemon to counter [[NostalgiaFilter genwunners]] (people that dislike Pokemon that came after the orignal 151) that argue the first Generation was the only good/the best Gen. His pre-evo is hated even more.
* Gameplay wise, people playing ''VideoGame/SpaceStation13'' tend to hate mimes because people use it as an excuse to be absolutely silent in a game that otherwise tends to thrive on character interaction. Lore wise, they tend to be the clowns worst enemy. Whether people are willing to tolerate the clown or the mime more tends to depend on which one is being more annoying, and both can be frustrating people to deal with on any given round.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Cake Mania 5: Lights, Camera, Action!'' comments that mime customers love other mimes because "someone has to."


* In ''Film/ScenesFromAMall'' Woody Allen has to deal with a pesty mime played by Creator/BillIrwin in the shopping mall during the Christmas rush. At the climax, Allen's character decks him -- though he quickly apologizes and shoves acwad of cash at him, which makes the mime's day.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForLaughs in both ''ComicBook/{{Pondus}} and in the cartoon spinoff ''Rutetid'', where (among other things), a military manouver is shown to take place in a "Mime Field", which is (of course), oversown with mimes buried in earth to the hips. In addition, the obligatory "police interrogation routine", where two cops are interrogating a mime, stating: "We are staying til you ''talk''!"

Added DiffLines:

* Disguising as a either a street performing mime in Sapienza, or entering the level in the Clown suit, ''VideoGame/Hitman2016'' NPC's don't take kindly to mimes walking around the level:
-->'''Male NPC:''' Dance for me fool!
-->'''Female NPC:''' I don't like that creepy outfit *Shudders*

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/ScoobyDooTeamUp'': When Angel and Sam hear screams, one of Sam's guesses is that "the audience realized they were watching mimes".


* The character of Mime on ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'', created so the creators would be able to kill a mime, again and again and again.

to:

* The [[ZigzaggingTrope An interesting example]] with the character of Mime on ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'', created so ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''. He seems to be universally appreciated for his performances and is generally well liked. A shame we're talking about a show that [[SadistShow revolves around the creators would be able to kill a mime, again cute critters constantly dying, and again and again.Mime is no exception]]. He does die less than the other characters, but only slightly.


* The ''RobotAndMonster'' episode "Doctor? No!" involves a disease called robies, which if untreated, would turn a person into a mime. There's even a mime reserve (like an indian reserve) in that same episode!

Added DiffLines:

* There was a RunningGag on ''Series/TheFlash1990'' of Mirror Master accidentally throwing out a hologram of a mime instead of whatever hologram he was looking for.


* In ''VideoGame/CarnEvil'', the final stage features a number of mimes throughout... miming. They're the only "enemy" in the game that can do absolutely nothing to you, and you're free to shoot or ignore them at your leisure.

They're the only "enemy" in the game that can do absolutely nothing to you, and you're free to shoot or ignore them at your leisure. The ''WebVideo/RosssGameDungeon'' episode on this game speculates that the developers didn't bother giving them an attack because they assumed all players would automatically slaughter all mimes on sight and would not need the additional motivation of self-defense.
