* OlderThanSteam: Parodied in ''Literature/DonQuixote''. Whether his beloved Dulcinea appears to be a garlic-chewing peasant, or our hero is transported from his inn chamber to fight a giant (who is actually a passel of wineskins hung above his bed), Don Quixote believes it is due to malevolent enchanters. In fact there is no magic occurring and Don Quixote is quite deluded when he believes such things. The book is making fun of earlier works that used this trope.

* In the 3D Background Explanations Corner of the ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' volumes, whenever KenAkamatsu notes that something is off, like how the external shots of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Eva's]] home doesn't match the internal shots, he'd mention with his tongue firmly in cheek that it's probably due to magic screwing up its physical dimensions or something similar.

* Franchise/TheFlash is hilariously bad with this. He has the SpeedForce, an alternate dimension that surrounds the other dimensions and is the location of time and speed; also somehow Barry makes more of it whenever he runs. Basically, the Speedforce is used to explain anything or as a crutch to have writers get themselves out of holes in a way that is plausible enough; [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands including stealing kinetic energy, not having to eat millions of Calories, phasing through objects, and so much more.]] A lot of these are also canon now too.
** Naturally, the fans ran away with this due to the lazy and odd nature of the Speedforce. It can be used negatively or positively, but any question, no matter how dumb, is answered with Speedforce. The problem arises when technically they're not wrong due to the nature of the SpeedForce.

* Used and lampshaded in ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney. The game is set in Labyrinthia, where everything that seems out of ordinary at trials the witness just pin it on "the witch did it", even though there are clear inconsistencies inside that world's use of magic rules. Being inspired in real medieval-era witch trials, that was probably the real way of thinking back then.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', any weirdness beyond the setting's standard ElementalPowers can be explained with "spirits did it". Sokka even dismissed one incident with "That's Avatar stuff; it doesn't count." In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Amon even justified his strange powers as "the spirits chose me" ([[spoiler:they didn't, but it was considered a possibility in-universe]]).

* In the entire ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series, there are countless areas, characters, items, etc., with absolutely absurd physics that really remain unexplained to this very day, leading most -- if not all -- fans to just call this.
