* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'', the title character gets a new adrenal gland from who he THINKS is a world-famous stuntman who recently died in a freak accident. This leads to him believing he can do all sorts of monumental stunts and acts of derring-do. And it works...until his partner informs him that the gland came from a dyslexic accountant (and a new adrenal gland wouldn't give one increased strength, balance or flexibility, either). He calls off his latest daring stunt and everything is back to normal.

** In one episode, Kyle's parents tell him he can go to a Raging Pussies concert if he brings democracy to Cuba. He does just that, unaware that his parents thought this task impossible. They still don't let him go.

** After expressing a desire to join the Crips, which they believe is an organisation for people who have been disabled from birth, Jimmy and Timmy manage to "pop some punk-ass Bloods", despite assuming that this means buying marshmallows and ginger ale. They cross the road on the way to the store, causing a truck driver to swerve and kill the rival gang members. The Crips are ecstatic that they both popped some bloods and brought back marshmallows and ginger ale.
* In ''Film/WakkosWish'', [[BadlyBatteredBabysitter Buttons]] runs straight up a tree to save Mindy, only to fall when she tells him "Puppies can't climb trees."

* In a mainstream ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode, Stinkbomb B. Basset Hound pursues Slappy, and when she climbs a tree to get away from him, he scales the tree after her. When he reaches her, however, she tells him that dogs can't climb trees, at which point he plummets to the ground. (He gets a good idea in the next scene and tries to use climbing gear to do it, but doesn't fare much better.)

** And Grandpa Simpson once managed to take off his underpants without taking off his pants first. When asked how he did that, he is as confused as everyone else.
* This is how Ed of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' is able to [[RealityWarper warp reality]] and do things no normal kid should do-such as lifting a ''house''. Actually lampshaded once: Edd and Eddy come to a screeching halt at the edge of a cliff, Ed slams into them and knocks them off. Eddy starts yelling at him, before Double D looks down and announces: "Uh, gentlemen? [[OhCrap IMPROBABLE ALERT!]]" While Ed contemplates that he can "make it" (jump to the other side of the ravine while already standing on air) the others scramble back to safety.

** The building montage of "Home Sweet Pineapple," full stop. The two, attempting to rebuild Spongebob's house after it was eaten, manage to ''completely defy the laws of physics'' without even noticing.
* Goofy refers to this phenomenon on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop''. Pete wants to steal Goofy's cat, Waffles, as part of some scheme. So he convinces Goofy that Waffles is allergic to the color of Goofy's house. When Max's encyclopedia declares that cats are color-blind, Goofy shrugs it off: "Maybe Waffles hasn't read that book."
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2021}}'' ends with Marco singing a duet in Portuguese...while thinking he's singing in Spanish.
* During an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', The Monarchs Henchmen wake from a wild night of partying to find they actually managed to capture Brock and the Venture family. Blind stinking drunk.

* A bit into ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'', you meet a Half-Wit Inventor machine in Pascal's village. He keeps asking you for investment money until you reach about 100,000, which he intends to use to send a rocket to the moon. Come back later and he tells you that the whole thing was a failure since the rocket went to Mars instead.
