* ''VideoGame/TheWitness'': Out of all the rooms inside the greenhouse, the one with green light is probably the most prominent: it provides the main difficulty for the elevator puzzle, it's harder to reach compared to the other rooms, it contains an audio log and an environmental puzzle, and it's the only one which can be seen from the outside. It's ironic that the green room was chosen to be this way, considering it's also ''the most unrealistic''. Chlorophyll absorbs light throughout the visible spectrum, but mostly in the blue and red regions and very little in the green region (in fact, of all the many pigments that plants use to absorb light, none of them absorb much green light).[[note]]This is actually a form of protection. The sun gives off the most amount of its energy as visible light in the green region of the spectrum (483-520 nm). Chlorophyll is easily destroyed by too much energy, and when the pigments break down and stop absorbing light entering the plant, that energy can cause damage to other plant tissues as well, including the plants DNA. Think of it as a sort of plant sunburn.[[/note]]

* The first ''Literature/ThePaperMagician'' book depicts a valve between the second and third chambers of the heart, similar to the valves between the first and second chambers and the third and fourth chambers. This is not how human hearts work. The heart is divided into two parallel halves; the right half receives deoxygenated blood from the body and pumps it out to the lungs to pick up more oxygen, while the left half receives the reoxygenated blood from the lungs and pumps it out to the rest of the body. If you can get from one side of the heart to the other without actually ''leaving'' the heart, '''something is wrong'''. And this is after a character in the book has spent time ''specifically studying'' anatomical diagrams of the heart, [[spoiler: and has ''crafted a working prosthetic heart based on that knowledge'']], which gives the impression that the character has done more research than the author who wrote her.

* Several ''Anime/{{Inuyasha}}'' feature Kagome and/or Sango going into heat. Humans don't go into heat; they have a menstrual cycle. Similarly, some stories have a demon being able to smell that they/they're mate is pregnant as soon as a few minutes after having sex.

** Scrat the proto-squirrel has huge saber-like canine teeth. Being rodents, squirrels -- even prehistoric ones -- don't have canines at all.

It was not a rodent though, and lived in the ''Mesozoic'', not in the Cenozoic, much less the last ice age.

* ComicBook/{{Batman}}'s physical capabilities are supposedly natural, without any artificial or supernatural enhancements, but his feats are greatly embellished. For example, he's able to bench press 1,000 lbs ''and'' fight for 28 hours straight. Fighting for 28 hours straight is basically impossible for the human body, and much more-so if you've got the oxygen-sapping physique of a power-lifter. Consider that top professional fighters carefully regulate their training to enter the ring at their absolute physical peak, yet still need to rest every 3 to 5 minutes to fight at their maximum capacity.

* ''Franklin and the Green Knight'', a film from the ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'' series depicts Mrs. Turtle, an anthropomorphic turtle, as being pregnant with Franklin's sister, Harriet, rather than laying an egg. Franklin can also remove his shell in the cartoon series. In reality, a turtle's shell is fused to its spine and ribcage. Even if it were possible to take it off, attempting such an act would kill the turtle in a very messy way. (While we're on the subject, someone should remind a [[http://friskywoods.deviantart.com/art/Shellshocked-77703850 certain Italian plumber]] of this.)

This is averted in the follow-up series ''Franklin and Friends'' in which not only can neither Franklin nor any of his family remove their shells, but it's also said at least once that the shell grows with them.
