* ''Film/{{The Most Beautiful|1944}}'': The progress of the women at the military lens factory is illustrated by a line graph that trends up when they are dedicated and working well, and trends down when various factors (fatigue, internal bickering, a broken leg) slow them down.

*Referenced and parodied in [[http://explosm.net/comics/1940/ this]] WebComic/CyanideAndHappiness comic where it's remarked that a profit chart is upside down. Thankfully, it didn't change anything.


* ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons Movie'' has Spacely Sprockets showcasing the profits of the new Asteroid mine in such a fashion. The line goes up until it reaches the end, before crashing directly down and through the floor. Considering the mine is being sabotaged, this might actually be the correct profit margin.

* Series/HowIMetYourMother has a rather offbeat example of this. There is an episode where Marshall has an obsession with making graphs of trivial things. So much so that the gang stages an intervention.
* Dave Gorman showed a number of graphs in ''The Dave Gorman Collection'', the premise being that he didn't want to break his miles per Dave Gorman rule.
