* In ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'', there is an episode generally referred to among fans as 'The Puppy Episode' (#20). In it, G-2 receives a hit that leaves a bit of shrapnel in his head -in an inoperable location. The good Doctor who is the Xavier for the team -and who is repeatedly shown ''not'' to be a medical doctor, but a scientist- decides that the only way to get the shrapnel out is to ''stick G-2 in a giant centrifuge'' normally used for G-forces training. G-2 later escapes and joins his team on the Godphoenix. The final explosion and death throes of the giant mole mecha (yes, really) send the ship into a massive series of spins -which removes the shrapnel. Somehow.
** The puppy of the fan title was rescued by G-2, resulting in his injury. The set-up was to show him as a softer character then the hard revenge-driven type he had so far been shown to be -but how drastically they fail in how medicine really works overshadows the moment of heartwarming.

* Anything and everything about [[FetishFuel vore]]. [[SchmuckBait Don't look for it unless you want to be scarred.]]
** 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.

** The effects of ALZ-113 on the apes are instantaneous. Neurogenesis is inherently a very slow-going process, as more rapid neurogenesis almost inevitably results in death. This does however explain why [[spoiler:ALZ-113 turns out to be fatal to humans.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': {{Space marine}}s, just ([[SuperSoldier acid spitting, one-ribbed, three-lunged, two-hearted, two-stomached, electric skinned, super strength, reinforced skeleton, fast healing, power armored]]) {{space marine}}s.

* ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' is a prime example of this trope. It's best not to think too hard about how a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant radioactive dinosaur, giant butterfly, or half-plant half-Godzilla hybrid]] is able to exist. Just invoke the RuleOfCool, a bit of TechnoBabble, and perhaps the AnthropicPrinciple (you can't have Godzilla films without Godzilla) and be done with it. ''[[http://www.angelfire.com/ego/g_saga/kaijubiologyarticle.html This page]] attempts to scientifically explain how Kaiju could possibly exist. To summarize, they're basically reanimated corpses whose cells have been transformed into microscopic fission reactors.

* ''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.

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.
