* There has [[http://www.messybeast.com/self-solid.htm never, ever been an actual self-colored red cat]], as a few of the characters in ''Disney/TheAristocats'' are. This is genetically impossible due to red fur being linked to tabby stripes. There are two red coat patterns that could be mistaken for self reds: a diluted red, or cream, can have tabby stripes that are very faint and easy to look over, especially from a distance. A long haired red tabby might also be mistaken for a self red because the fur length can confuse the pattern. Neither of these shows up, as Thomas O' Malley and the orange kitten Toulouse are a vivid red and, as far as one can tell, do not have very long fur.

* There has [[http://www.messybeast.com/self-solid.htm never, ever been an actual self-colored red cat]], as a few of Disney/{{Zootopia}}: The backstory about how the characters in ''Disney/TheAristocats'' are. This is genetically impossible due animals all [[HollywoodEvolution evolved]] to red fur have the same [[FunnyAnimal high intelligence, bipedal locomotion, and vocal mechanism]] all at the same time, despite originally being linked very different species and continuing to tabby stripes. There are two red coat patterns that could be mistaken differ in many other ways. It's highly implausible for self reds: a diluted red, or cream, can anyone who knows anything about biology, but [[NecessaryWeasel it's necessary for the basic premise to work]], so you just have tabby stripes that are very faint and easy to look over, especially from a distance. A long haired red tabby might also be mistaken for a self red because the fur length can confuse the pattern.

* The ''Film/{{Species}}'' movies, especially the second one. A film about the difficulties Creator/NatashaHenstridge has getting laid...
** The fate of TheVirus-infected astronaut's human victims in ''SpeciesII'': his Evil Spawn go from conception to full term in ''minutes'' and then tear their way out of their hosts like chest bursters. This is ridiculous because, whatever alien biology the fetus has, it needs nutrients from its human mother to survive; the human uterus could never supply enough to allow such growth rates. These things need to assimilate as much as nine pounds of material in minutes; even ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' chest bursters usually had the decency to take a couple of hours. Then there's the part where the infected astronaut blew off his own head with a shotgun and not only survived but also retained his memories, which is like smashing your hard drive, getting a new one, and expecting your old files to still be there when you plug it in.

Added DiffLines:

** Typical sites actually separate the realistic vore as "Hard vore". Usually it's decided by whether or not there is stomach acid present and whether or not the prey dies. Excretion is not taken into account. If the prey is unharmed, alive, and [[MST3KMantra undigested when they come out]], it still counts as soft.

** Not ''made'' from a dog, he was reincarnated as a kangaroo-man ultimate fighting machine bioengineered thing after having ''been'' a dog in a past life. So he's as much Art Major Metaphysics as this trope.

* Although there is no official explanation given as to the how [[TheVirus the Rage virus]] in ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' works after infecting a victim, the virus apparently infects its host after a single heartbeat. Also, the infected don't eat, they don't drink, it's debatable whether or not they sleep, and they're constantly vomiting copious amounts of their own blood. How could they possibly live for a total of 28 days before falling over dead from starvation?

* The 'farm humans for energy' backstory from ''Film/TheMatrix'' makes less than no sense. One much better solution for the machines would be to simply burn the humans and whatever they were feeding humans with. Humans were originally supposed to be organic computer hardware for the machines, which is at least somewhat plausible. However, the Wachowski Brothers were [[ExecutiveMeddling told to change that]] since the execs were worried [[ViewersAreMorons people wouldn't understand it]].
