* Going past all of the usual dragon examples that would apply to the beast from ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' (like wingspan), how does a heart that can fit in a man's fist pump blood through the body of a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever seventy foot long]] [[IfItSwimsItFlies flying and swimming]] reptile? Never mind that a heart in the neck protected by tracing paper is a bad idea anyway. Blocking the trachea and being easily ripped out are not desirable traits in a heart. Although being the product of a gold thing and a human you can hardly expect it to have evolved properly...

** Jiminy Cricket bears very little, if any, resemblance to an actual cricket. To be fair, however, Jiminy was originally depicted as an actual (that is, less anthropomorphized) cricket with toothed legs and waving antennae. But Walt wanted something more likable. So he assigned animator Ward Kimball to redesign the cricket. Kimball whittled away at any and all cricket-like appendages until Jiminy became, in Kimball's words, "a little man with an egg head and no ears. And the only thing that makes him a cricket is because we call him one."
** Monstro the whale resembles a sperm whale, but has a head much too wide and teeth on both jaws, when real sperm whale have laterally-flattened heads and only have teeth on their very thin lower jaw. He also has belly lining, which is a trait of baleen whales. He is also seen sleeping at the bottom of the ocean. Whales don't sleep that way, or else they would drown. Although it's eventually revealed he's just pretending to sleep so he can ambush passing schools of fish.

** Possibly an in-universe example, as the cannibalistic Daggerwrist may have been behaving abnormally, forcing its packmates to kill it and then salvage its offspring rather than wait for it to give birth. The researcher who observed this event came from a failed ecosystem and had no experience with animals' natural behavior, so could've overlooked the incongruity.

*** The man also tempts the snake with milk (a common misconception). Holmes calls it "a swamp adder, the deadliest snake in India", a name which does not correspond to any species of the snake's characteristics.

** He is missing the point of natural selection. Because of his psychological quirks and self-centeredness, his fitness level currently appears to be very low (moreover he has a very low interest in finding a mate in the first place, much less conceiving and raising a child). Unless his attitude changes completely, he is going to be naturally selected against, and not pass on his genes. Evolution favors those who have multiple children.

* The final mission of ''VideoGame/Hitman2016'''s Season One brings you to the most advanced hospital in the world, where one of 47's targets, a person who suffers the condition Situs Inversus (Mirrored organs), is about to have a heart transplant. 47 can destroy the mirrored heart that was meant for him, which, in theory, dooms him to die at the operating table. In practice, however, patients suffering from Situs Inversus can receive non-mirrored organs. The operation is a lot more complicated but, again, we're talking of the most advanced hospital in the world...

* Deliberately invoked for horror in ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}: Whistleblower''. Eddie Gluskin, a psychotic SerialKiller even before his MindRape in the illegal underground lab below the Asylum, is fixated on finding himself a perfect bride. In response to being surrounded only by men, he's come to the conclusion that as the only major difference between genders is that men have a penis & testicles whilst women have a vagina, and as the vagina looks a lot like a cut, [[GroinAttack brutally castrating men and using the resultant wound as a vagina]] will make them fully functional as women, complete with [[MrSeahorse bearing his much-wanted children]]. Needless to say, it does ''not'' work that way, but he's so demented that he refuses to accept that he's doomed to fail.
