I once played with a guy who was extremely fond of comic books and made it a point of honour to bring in as many obscure references as humanly possible with his characters, who tended to be badly-disguised expys of various comic characters. This usually lasted until we politely asked him to stop it before we actually hit him, which was about ten minutes into roleplaying the introduction. Even so, he'd still drop the odd hint and shout out here and there, enjoying himself tremendously all the while and annoying the hell out of the rest of us.
We eventually forgave him all though, when at the climax of an extremely long, bloody and resource-draining confrontation against the Big Bad, in which we were all down to just a few HP and virtually nothing left on our side but hope, we saw our DM hesitate and then shrug - though we had just slain the Big Bad, his right-hand man, who we had thought defeated earlier, turned out to have escaped and come back for revenge and was even bigger and badder now that he was not constrained by his boss' Chaotic Stupid behaviour. We had the absolute devil of a time trying to beat him the first time, because of a specialised build that incorporated elements of the Monk, Cleric, Rogue, Shadowdancer and Divine freaking Oracle to make him able to counter almost any melee threat by literally predicting what attack was going to be launched.
Our comic-loving friend, having the most HP and a delighted smile that puzzled us all, immediately charged and rolled his dice...for an untrained Perform (dance) check. Baffled by this - and the natural 20 which resulted - our DM and final opponent became stunned. Then the sword came down for a called shot to the groin...
On asking how the hell he came up with the plan to DANCE at his enemy, the guy replied that he had seen the same basic thing happen in a Deadpool comic. The fact that it worked in our tabletop game pleased him no end. The fact that we then got to keep our characters alive for the next campaign pleased us even more. Since then he has been allowed to drop all the references he likes and pull all the stunts he can think of. If they are particularly appropriate, he sometimes even gets allowed to succeed.
