** While the ones present in Naruto are [[RuleofCool stylized]], some types of Japanese armor really did use forehead protectors, sometimes taking the form of a headband.

* The climax of ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' involves a tanker truck full of liquid nitrogen crashing into a SteelMill. That's not as ridiculous as people assume. Large volumes of liquid nitrogen are transported in tanker trucks in real life, because it's used in the manufacture of trunnion hub girders. And yes, trunnion hub girders are also real.
** Actually, liquid nitrogen is the ''by-product'' of basic oxygen steelmaking. BOF process uses pure oxygen on converting the heat into steel, and the oxygen is separated from air in situ. Trucks carrying liquid nitrogen [[ShownTheirWork would be very much present]] in any integrated steel mill.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': A flashback set 109 years in the past has Shinji telling Aizen that he's playing jazz music which is just becoming popular in the World of the Living. The fandom reacted with surprise that Tite Kubo, a infamous music geek, would be wrong about jazz existing back then. However, in a small joke sketch in that volume, the author informs the character that 'jazz' doesn't actually exist yet, leaving Shinji confused over what he's listening to. The implication is that Shinji is listening to ragtime, which these days is often viewed as an early form of jazz.

Compare TechnologyMarchesOn, SeinfeldIsUnfunny, WidgetSeries, {{Defictionalization}}, and PoesLaw. A subtrope of RealityIsUnrealistic, ValuesDissonance, and TruthInTelevision. Can also be used as a means of ShownTheirWork. Frequently found in {{Unintentional Period Piece}}s. If not even the creators know it exists, it's AccidentallyAccurate.

* The Masamune and Muramasa's status as {{Public Domain Artifact}}s and their frequent appearances in [=JRPGs=] like ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy'' and ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' may lead some gamers to assume that they are mythical swords, like Gram or Excalibur. In fact, they're real-life masterworks more akin to a Stradivarius instrument. Not only were Masamune and Muramasa historically real swordsmiths, there wasn't even "the" Masamune or Muramasa blade; several specimens of both still exist today in museums and private collections, and they occasionally appear at auction, for the lucky and/or sufficiently-wealthy enthusiast to buy.

** Lifebuoy Soap is almost completely forgotten now, except in India, where it is a big brand like Dove in the US, but it's actually still being made. Likewise Palmolive is known almost entirely as a dish soap these days, but they did and still do make hand soap.

* ''Podcast/TheBlackGuyWhoTips'' opens every show by mentioning that "The unofficial sport [of the show]... Is Bulletball! (And Bulletball Extreme!)". While "sport" may be too strong a term, [[http://www.nchpad.org/778/4147/BulletBall~~~A~Therapeutic~Table~Sport~by~Inclusion~Sports Bulletball is real.]] Rod and Karen were on board even before Bulletball's creator brought it to ''Series/SharkTank''.
