* The Wizard is responsible for all the events of ''ComicFuryWerewolf''. This started as a joke, and eventually became the main plot.

** ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness''
*** The novelization explains that they didn't take blood from another frozen augment because [=McCoy=] didn't know if they could all regenerate like [[spoiler:Khan]] and didn't want to risk another superpowered psychopath running around the ship.
*** A tie-in comic says that [[spoiler: Khan]] had MagicPlasticSurgery to explain why [[TheNthDoctor he looks completely different]] to previous incarnations.

** The novelization to ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'' says that Sybok showed the crew how to radically adjust the deflector shields in order to be able to pass through the extreme radiation environment of the Great Barrier and that he tinkered with the ships engines in order to reach the Galactic Core in less than a day. The Klingon Bird Of Prey was able to copy these techniques by scanning the enterprise.

* The standard explanation for any continuity errors in the new ''Film/StarTrek'' movie is, "A particularly troubled time-traveling Romulan did it." Even when those errors date from BEFORE the Romulan split the timeline.
** WordOfGod says that Future Spock seeing the planet Vulcan in the sky was actually a psychic vision similar to how Spock can sense large numbers of vulcans dying over long distances in ''TheOriginalSeries''.
** The {{Novelization}} and ComicBookAdaptation say that Kirk's escape pod landed so conveniently near Spock's cave because the timeline was trying to repair itself by bringing Kirk and Spock together.
** Abrams says that the reason why technology is more advanced in the past than in the future is because the shuttles evacuating the Kelvin scanned Nero's ship and then studied the futuristic technology.
** A tie-in comic about Nero says that a stellar cartographer on Rura Pente and [[StarTrekTheMotionPicture Vejur]] helped him work out where and when Future Spock would emerge from the [[UnrealisticBlackHole black hole]].

* ''Literature/GloryRoad'' by Creator/RobertAHeinlein contains a reflection about the "It's Magic" form of {{handwave}}. In his InnerMonologue a character noted that "It's Television" is exactly as counter-productive.

* In addition to allowing the two to travel through time in ''Literature/TimeCat'', Gareth's [[CatsAreMagic cat powers]] allow Jason to blend in to his temporal and cultural surroundings nearly seamlessly. It gives him TranslatorMicrobes, adapts his clothes to current fashions and presumably keeps him from contracting common pathogens of the times and dying of salmonella or something before he gets back home.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'': In contrast to the original trilogy, which has [[MinovskyPhysics remarkably consistent fantasy-science]], anything weird or blatantly against the laws of physics as we know them is attributed to the Scourge. Among these effects are: super-intense lightning storms across most of a planet, stripping a planet's atmosphere, altering planetary orbits, inducing an ice age, hyper-accelerating organic evolution, and even physically shattering a planet into an asteroid field. All this on top of causing random gravity anomalies and ripping apart any spaceship that runs into it. Why it does one thing in one place and another in another place is never explained.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'' allowed the player to choose one of several endings with supposedly world-changing effects. This left the developers in a sticky place when it came time for the sequel, ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', so they invented a supernatural disaster, "The Warp in the West", in which all the endings to Daggerfall had happened at once.
** Oddly enough, this led to endings which contradicted one another occurring simultaneously. Mannimarco, the first Lich, both succeeded and didn't succeed in making himself a god, meaning he has a divine incarnation and a mortal (but undead) avatar at the same time. The Dragon Break (as it was also called) also makes the ending where [[spoiler: the player character is crushed to death in a meaningless happenstance]] true as well.
*** In the Shivering Isles expansion for ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', one quest has the player dealing with a town full of duplicates. When asked how the duplicates came about, the quest-giving NPC only tells you AWizardDidIt.

When asked how the duplicates came about, the quest-giving NPC only tells you AWizardDidIt.that a wizard caused it.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', this is given as the reason for how [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] are able to function. How are they able to fly in spite of their bulk and non-aerodynamic shape? How are they able to speak despite not having lips? Magic. To be more specific, they have a natural affinity for magic which allows for this.
