Yeah, there happens to be this other RealLife religion with a similar name but they've got all this extra junk about the true [[ArchangelMichael nature of Christ]], the method of Salvation, organizational structure and all those other things that you can't fit into a 42-minute hour. Now those guys ''do'' believe that only 144,000 will go to heaven, yes (technically, ''rule'' heaven alongside Jesus), but that's not what most of them are aiming for: other good people will rebuild earth into [[{{Arcadia}} a paradise]] and live there for a thousand years before the final Judgment Day. They do indeed believe that blood is sacred and thus they reject blood tranfusions. However, the real life ones have committees trained to point out the alternatives to blood transfusion, even having had heart surgery performed without transfusions without lowering survival rates - but that wouldn't make for such an interesting moral dilemma in MedicalDrama. Despite the evangelical side, they are politically neutral (i.e. not voting, not joining the army, not working in government jobs, and generally not acknowledging the existence of the nation-state).

* Averted on ''Series/{{Community}}''. In "Religious Studies" (the first-season ChristmasEpisode), Troy is revealed to be a Jehovah's Witness and as such doesn't celebrate Christmas. However, you couldn't tell that he was a Jehovah's Witness if he didn't say so. He does have a crazy and &uumlaut;ber-religious and very strict grandma, but that's not so much a trope about Jehovah's Witnesses as it is a trope about black culture in the United States, as she could have just as easily been a Baptist or Methodist. Probably the only inaccurate thing Troy says about Witnesses is that they "can't drink". While Witnesses believe drunkenness is wrong, they have no problem with drinking alcohol in moderation. Even so, Troy doesn't fit the description of a typical Hollywood Witness.

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/LieToMe'', the family of a Jehovah's Witness kid accused of murder use religious idioms that are seldom expressed in the JW world except in parody or sarcasm, such as "praying for your soul." Also, the JW child is afraid of being sent to Hell. Major research failure: Jehovah's Witnesses [[https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/what-is-hell/ don't believe in Hell]].
** Expanding the above a little, it's highly unlikely they would "pray for your soul" given they don't believe in the soul in the terms most understand it; body and soul are not viewed as separate things. Rather, people will be resurrected by God in their belief if righteous, while sinners are left dead
* In one episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', a suspect in about five rape-homicides, who was found to have both marijuana and cocaine in his home and was known for sleeping with different women until their money ran out, claims that giving the police a blood sample is against his religion because he's a Jehovah's Witness (Jehovah's Witnesses condemn drugs and extramarital sex and have no problem with giving blood for non-transfusion purposes). Legally the detectives can't press the issue, but to their credit they don't take his claim seriously at all.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' does this one twice. In an early episode, Cartman's religion has been known to go knocking around for converts. A later episode has Butters mistakenly thinking the government is a religion, and converting the two Jehovah's Witnesses that visit him.

* Utterly mocked in ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}''. The first story has the titular 'hero' being mistaken for one when he knocks on the door of the Buffoon's lair and presents himself as "I'm Rat-Man! I bring justice among those who walk on the wrong path!", prompting the {{Mooks}} to grab the knives to 'make him disappear'. In a later occasion we have a Jehovah's Witness knock on Rat-Man's door, and we're treated to his own way to scare them away.

* There's an UrbanLegend that ''Film/{{Witness}}'' was named for the writer confusing the Amish with Jehovah's Witnesses. In truth, the film was going to be titled ''Called Home'' and was pretty wise up on Amish practice. The title actually comes from the fact it's about a cop protecting an Amish boy who's the only witness to a murder.
* Averted in ''A Perfect World'', where it's really only mentioned that they don't celebrate birthdays or Hallowe'en.
