* Franchise/{{Pokemon}}. Just look at some Pokémon species and just try to imagine a skeletal, muscular, or organ structure for them.

* Franchise/{{Pokemon}}. Just look at some Pokémon species and just try to imagine a skeletal, muscular, or organ structure for them. You'll still want most of them as a pet/bodyguard/friend though, regardless of how much it would hurt to imagine how they function.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has the bio-mechanical Evangelion, which in real life would not be able to stand up thanks to their legs being too slender. There are a lot of weird biological phenomena occurring in Evangelion (like an Angel's egg being incubated inside a volcano) that are explained via [[HandWave incomprehensible pseudo-science]].

* Lampshaded in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Baby Cakes," where the Cakes, both earth ponies, have twins who are a pegasus and a unicorn. Mr. Cake explains that he and his wife have ''very'' distant relatives of those species, one of which would have required the genes to move ''back'' a generation, and nervously says [[HandWave "That makes sense, right?"]]
** Assuming [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar the mother was actually an Earth Pony]]...

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheJenkinsverse'': The HEAT operators as described blow away all peak human possibilities, especially when you consider that they pack on several hundred pounds of muscle - so much that they need scales made for trucks - while increasing their overall flexibility. Not to mention they're probably pushing up against physical limitations imposed by the square-cube law. Somewhat lampshaded by the fact that even characters who interact with HEAT operators on a daily basis don't really believe how strong they are.
** Jenkinsverse aliens in general. How is intelligence supposed to have evolved in species that don't have any evolutionary pressure to outsmart anything more intelligent than grass?

** It should be noted that face transplants are a thing in real life, though they weren't yet when this movie was made. Even today the results of such transplants aren't exactly flawless and certainly don't leave the recipient looking like a carbon copy of the donor.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie''. On his first day as a science teacher, Professor Poopypants lists the names for the parts of a human child's brain as follows: the "Thinking-About-Candy-opolis", the "Fear-of-What's-Under-the-Bed" lobe, "The-Only-Thing-I'll-Eat-is-Pizza-Chicken-Nuggets-or-Bottled-Noodles" lobe, the "As-Soon-As-Someone-Else-Has-a-Toy-I-Want-That-Toy" interior lobe, and the "Haha-Guffaw-Chucklomatus".

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the Trolls get this a lot. For starters, the hemospectrum. Different Trolls have different blood colors, affecting their social standing. Those lower on the hemospectrum (reds, oranges, and yellows) are more likely to have psychic powers, while those higher up (blues and purples) are more resistant, and this higher up live longer by centuries. Also their horns are completely different shapes, generally somewhat impossible without body modification (Think Eridan), and in at least one instance (Vriska) it's shown the horns aren't even guaranteed to be ''[[UpToEleven symmetrical]]''. For the kids, their eye colors. Dave has blood red, Rose and Roxy have pink, and Dirk has orange.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'', evolution takes place between generations, but your progeny can only evolve body parts ''that you have previously collected from an existing creature!'' But it must be noted that ''Spore'' can be called an "evolution simulator" only as much as ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' can be called a "farm simulator" -- that is, in a very rough way -- and many aspects are simplified or tampered with to appeal to RuleOfFun. In ''Spore Creatures'', you don't even need to mate to create an egg; and the offspring can be incredibly different from the parent creature. A full list of errors can be found [[http://scienceguild.org/wiki/index.php?title=Spore_biology here]].

* Disney/{{Zootopia}}: The backstory about how the animals all [[HollywoodEvolution evolved]] to have the same [[FunnyAnimal high intelligence, bipedal locomotion, and vocal mechanism]] all at the same time, despite originally being very different species and continuing to differ in many other ways. It's highly implausible for anyone who knows anything about biology, but [[NecessaryWeasel it's necessary for the basic premise to work]], so you just have to ignore it.

* Creator/{{Michelangelo}} is normally strict about adhering to the norms of normal human anatomy, but he deliberately made the hands and head of the ''Art/{{David}}'' overly large, most likely so that people viewing it from far away in a chapel could distinguish these important elements easily.
