*** In fact, ''nobody'' in the film thinks to just put out the firebenders' fires.

* In ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', Vegeta [[DeathByAdaptation kills Ginyu]] rather than sparing him like he did in the source material. This eventually brings up a plot hole when the Ginyu Forces gather together at King Kai's planet yet Captain Ginyu himself is not present as he doesn't die in the canon.

This will also produce an even bigger plothole should Team Four Star decide to adapt ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', since its version of ''Film/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' has Ginyu make a grand return by [[GrandTheftMe body-jacking]] one of Freeza's new minions.

** ''Dragon Ball Kai'' fixes some plotholes (like the Vegeta-dickery from the previous point), but creates some new ones thanks to the fact that it retains some filler while excising others. For example, the Buu Saga retained a scene in Hell where the previous villains watch Goku fight Kid Buu on a giant crystal ball. Two of the Oni present recognize Goku as "that fellow who fell off Snake Way a while back", referring to a Saiyan Saga filler episode that didn't make the cut. Of course, this scene also becomes an example with the release of ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', which shows Freeza being put through a SugarBowl punishment in Hell (suspended from a tree while fairies sing happy songs) instead of being free to move around as in the filler.

*** ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' messes up
this previous scene also becomes an example with the release of ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', which shows in another way by saying Freeza spent 15 years in Hell being put through a SugarBowl punishment in Hell (suspended from a tree while fairies sing happy songs) instead of being songs), while in the filler he was free to move around around. Of course, the entire depiction of Hell as a somewhat pleasant park originated in Filler in the filler.first place...

* Just like the original ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'' comic, ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox]]'' ends with Franchise/TheFlash [[spoiler: rebooting history and inadvertently bringing about the Comicbook/{{New 52}} timeline]]. However, this makes no sense, as in the original comic, the New 52 timeline was brought about when Pandora tricked Flash into merging the DCUniverse timeline with the Creator/{{Vertigo|Comics}} and {{Wildstorm}} timelines. [[AdaptedOut Since neither Pandora nor the timeline merger sequence were present in the film]], it's left completely unexplained as to why the Flash and Franchise/{{Batman}} are suddenly wearing their New 52 costumes at the end of the film.

* Season 3 of ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' adapts the ''ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}}'' story arc from the comic, which involves the Masters of Evil, a team of super-villains, posing as a new super-hero team in order to get people to trust them. In the comic, it actually made sense that nobody recognized them despite the fact they were still using the same powers, since the Masters of Evil had been through several line-up over the course of their career, and the members they used for the impersonation all had super-powers and abilities that were, for the most part, pretty common in the Marvel Universe (Baron Zemo[=/=]Citizen V was a BadassNormal like ComicBook/ThePunisher, ComicBook/Hawkeye or ComicBook/BlackWidow; MATCH-1[=/=]Beetle had a PoweredArmor like Iron Man, War Machine or nearly everyone in Iron Man's RoguesGallery; Goliath had SizeShifting like any hero using [[ComicBook/AntMan Pym particles]]; Moonstone[=/=]Meteorite was a FlyingFirepower like ComicBook/MsMarvel and plenty of other characters, and so on). Plus, they shew up at a time where most heroes in the Marvel Universe had gone missing, making it easier for them to get accepted with no question, since people were all too happy to have a new team serving as their protectors. In the cartoon, the Avengers have only met the Masters of Evil a few episodes before they show up disguised as the Thunderbolts, the only line-up they have displayed is the one they use while in disguise, very few of the characters with similar super-powers have been introduced, and every Marvel hero is still alive and well, so you are left wondering how the Avengers don't put two and two together when this mysterious new superhero team with the same powers than a super-villain group they recently fought shows up.

** In episode six of ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' Usagi freaks out that she can't transform in front of Tuxedo Mask and reveal she's Sailor Moon, a few minutes after telling him she feels powerless '''as the leader of the Sailor Guardians'''. She's then surprised to learn he already knows about her secret identity. The one she told him about ''five minutes ago.'' In the manga, he tells her he knows before she starts worrying about her inadequacies as a Guardian, so her reaction makes perfect sense. (Out of context, her words could be interpreted in a more general sense - she initially says she is a leader without explicitly mentioning the Guardians - but talking about having to protect everyone while there's clearly a fight going on not too far away doesn't leave much room for interpretation.)
