* ''Vurt'' is [[ArcNumber big on fives]]. So it has FiveRaces, five [[HalfHumanHybrids two-way]] [[NonhumanHumanoidHybrid mixes]], five three-way mixes, and five four-way mixes, plus one purely theoretical combination of all five races. This means that some two-way mixes can breed with partners that one of their parents couldn't breed with, which is genetically improbable--but since one of the viable pairings is human and ''dog'', it's also probable that TheyJustDidntCare.

* Another film with risible but plot-critical errors: ''Film/JawsTheRevenge''. Most glaring is how the shark decides to kill a family out of revenge, [[VoodooShark even though the very concept of revenge is well beyond the mental capacity of a shark]]. (Or is it?..... Other fish do seem to have this concept) Also, this shark died in the original ''Jaws'' but apparently got better. How would it recognize relatives of Martin Brody, anyway? It also is able to travel from Martha's Vinyard to the Bahamas (which is too warm for great whites) in three days. And it roars. [[IfItSwimsItFlies And leaps into the air]]. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment And it roars.]]
** The Bahamas isn't actually too warm for great whites. As endotherms they can tolerate a wide range of temperatures.

* ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' thrives on this trope. A gigantic mammoth that the heroes go spelunking inside, searching for the most delicious piece of meat. An overabundance of large predators eating each other. Flowers that detect how {{Badass}} you are. A guy with a skeleton consisting of 4000 bones. Then there are all the absurd food ingredients. The anime is even worse than the manga, having animals that are ''biologically impossible'' as well as environments that don't make one lick of sense.

* 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.

This might be because in hand-drawn animation it is very difficult to animate the tabby stripes.

* 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.
