- In Double Trouble (pictured), where Robot Rudy knocks him against a wall, where the hard rocks could have given him head trauma.

- In a meta example, the song "Time to Go Home" was loaded with End-of-Series Awareness (the episode it aired with was the last episode in production, however five episodes premiered after it).
- Whenever King Mumbo Jumbo's supposed death is brought up in "The Big Blow-Up", Barney the Encyclocentipedia cries. Fortunately, it turns out that King Mumbo Jumbo is still alive.
