* The videos made by wikia for the WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} wiki contain several factual errors. One pretty glarring example is in their video for Lie Ren. Not only do they pronounce his name wrong, but they also claim he's voiced by "WebAnimation/RWBYChibi voice actor Creator/MontyOum" who died over a year before WebAnimation/RWBYChibi first aired and has since been replaced by his brother Neath as Ren's voice actor.

** The above leads to making it look like the comic itself is a case of this trope to people who actually have knowledge about the Nordic countries and/or worldwide languages. For instance, Iceland wasn't settled until the 9th century A.D., making the fact that Icelandic is treated as its own laguage in the "before year 0" tree an easy "mistake" to point out, alongside the absence of any language that isn't Indo-European or Uralic (which unfortunately include African, Middle Eastern and Asian languages).

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'''s EncyclopediaExposita includes [[http://www.sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=196 a language tree]] that has gone viral. However, proper context is rarely given, with the most frequent mistake being claiming that it shows how ''all'' languages are related. In reality, the purpose for which it was created results in it showing only two language families (namely the Indo-European and Uralic ones) and not including languages from those families with too few speakers. Even when the illustration is mentioned to have been made for a webcomic, it's rarely specified that it's an AfterTheEnd story subject to HitSoHardTheCalendarFeltIt, which means that the year 0 mentioned on the image is ''not'' year 0 A.D., which it can quite easily get mistaken for. The comic is also set in the Nordic countries (with the human population of the rest of the planet quite possibly wiped out), which accounts for the focus on the Nordic languages.

However, proper context is rarely given, with the most frequent mistake being claiming that it shows how ''all'' languages are related. In reality, the purpose for which it was created results in it showing only two larger language families and not including languages from those families with too few speakers. Even when the illustration is mentioned to have been made for a webcomic, it's rarely specified that it's an AfterTheEnd story subject to HitSoHardTheCalendarFeltIt, which means that the year 0 mentioned on the image is ''not'' year 0 A.D., which it can quite easily get mistaken for.

* In a Website/CollegeHumor parody of Film/JurassicPark, Dr. Grant says that the only dinosaur that is from the Jurassic in the film is the T. Rex, and that it was actually a scavenger. In fact, T. Rex was from the Cretaceous, just like some of the others he pointed out earlier. Perhaps he was confusing it with the Allosaurus. Incidentally, the first dinosaur we see in the film, the Brachiosaurus, was from the Jurassic, and that exact scene where they see it for the first time is parodied in the sketch. Also, the theory that T. Rex was a scavenger is... [[ArtisticLicensePaleotology a point of debate at best, but has generally been overruled.]]

** Ironically, in both this case and a similar Fox 11 report on {{troll}}s in general, the station is universally mistaken for Creator/FoxNewsChannel when, in fact, they have almost nothing to do with one another; the station is an owned-and-operated affiliate of {{FOX}}, the separate broadcast network, and its local news operations are independent of Fox News Channel. Another recent example of this occurred when someone posted a news clip claiming that "Fox News attacks bronies". However, the clip came from a St. Louis Fox affiliate, and not the Fox News Channel.
