* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'': The Antarctic Treaty that both sides of the war abide by is often summed up as "banning all WMD's". So some people get confused that the Solar System (essentially a giant space-borne version of [[http://www.unmuseum.org/burning_mirror.htm Archimedes' Burning Mirror]]) or the Solar Ray ([[WaveMotionGun a giant particle cannon]]) are used without comment any comment of Treaty violations. Actually, what the Antarctic Treaty bans are "Nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons; and {{Colony Drop}}s". Neither the Solar System nor the Solar Ray utilize nuclear power despite their destructive potential, thus they aren't banned by the Treaty.

** The TSAB limits how much concentrated power is allowed in a single unit to cut down on InterserviceRivalry. So how does Hayate get her family and best friends on the same squad when every one of them approaches or exceeds the power limit on their own? Have everyone wear {{Power Limiter}}s of course.

** Uryuu thinks he's pulled this on his father to help Ichigo rescue Orihime from Hueco Mundo. Ryuuken restored Uryuu's powers in return for the promise that Uryuu would never again associate with Shinigami or their allies. Since Ichigo's been abandoned by Soul Society and is only a Substitute, not a real Shinigami, Uryuu concludes he's not breaking the promise to help. Ichigo calls it "twisted logic". Although the kids don't realise it, the manga implies Ryuuken planned the loophole and expected Uryuu to exploit it, ensuring Uryuu would carefully weigh up his options before facing the consequences of his decision like the man he claims to be. [[spoiler: The final arc reveals Uryuu's logic was actually more sound than the kids knew and that Ryuuken's known the truth about Ichigo (namely that Ichigo is himself a Quincy, even though his Quincy powers hadn't actually awakened yet) from the very beginning.]]

** The written part of the Chuunin Exam is one example. The test consists of ten incredibly difficult questions and cheaters are disqualified after being caught cheating a few times. Similarly to the real life Spartan example below, the true purpose of the test is not to determine the candidate’s knowledge, but to test their ability to gather the required information without being caught cheating. Naruto accidentally discovers a real loophole in the written test: you only fail if you’re caught trying to cheat, so there is no penalty for not trying to answer at all.

He therefore passes the test by turning in a blank sheet of paper.

* In the third sound stage of the first season of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', Fate is unable to contact Nanoha in real time because of restrictions placed on her for her trial, which is why they exchange video letters to see each other's faces and hear each other's voices. During a celebration of the anniversary of Fate making a contract with her {{familiar}} Arf, Lindy allows Fate to see a video link of Nanoha launching Starlight Breaker fireworks and Amy suggests that the video, lagging behind by 0.05 seconds, is not technically real time.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' ends with this: [[spoiler:the wish that Madoka ultimately makes is to erase all witches from existence. Kyubey hopes this will result in the creation of a massive soul gem following Madoka's becoming a witch, but Madoka's power had become some immense that she was not only able to carry through on her wish, but also prevent herself from becoming a witch, [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence becoming the concept of hope in process.]]]]

* The Davy Back Fight of ''OnePiece'' allows the team that wins each match to pick a member of the opposing team and force him or her to join their crew. In the third round, Nami considers choosing Foxy, who is set to compete in the Combat event against Luffy, so that they win by default in the third match and can easily get Chopper back. While some members of the opposing team hypocritically protest (they had already done the same thing to one of the three Straw Hat set to compete in the second event), Robin notes that this is legal, but none of the Straw Hats want Foxy with them.

* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'': The main rule of the Interspecies Protection Act is that humans are forbidden to harm monsters and vice versa... which enables such things as monster criminals freely doing as they please with the human police unable to intervene.

* In ''{{Beyblade}}'' there is a rule that you can't attack another player, but it doesn't count if you can't see the weapon. Bryan was able to seriously injure Ray by attacking him with [[ElementalPowers air control]].
