** Ponies frequently pick things up and do other fine manipulation tasks despite having blunt hooves. A section of the pen and paper RPG based on the show actually points this out ("No Fingers? No Problem"), and says players should just assume their characters can do things that would normally require fingers.

It justifies this by saying [[RuleOfCool reality works a little better in Equestria]].

* ''WesternAnimation/LeoTheLion'': What's ''not'' wrong with the animals in this film? Well, here are a few examples.
** Leo's pride shows five male lions running the pride, when real-life prides have one or two males in charge. Five male lions in charge is begging for lots of infighting for power.
** As lions are obligate carnivores, they can't choose to be vegetarians. Leo's body frame, which the movie tries to say is good because of a vegetarian lifestyle, is less sleek and more emaciated.
** Due to the way embryos are formed, it'd be impossible for baby elephants' tails to be connected at birth.
** Leo and Uncle Lope the antelope force a female zebra to give milk to the baby animals. She's shown to have nipples on the stomach (more like a dog or a cat) as opposed to having an udder between the legs like real-life zebras and other equines. The same can almost be said for Savannah the elephant, who nurses her calves like a mother dog or cat (her teats would be on the chest, not the stomach).
** Leo and Savannah's MixAndMatchCritter babies. That is all.

* ''Film/Piranha3D'' contains an idea so {{egregious}}ly stupid that it may very well have been put in just to make the dumbest people in the audience feel smart when they realized that it was impossible. The Piranha survived two million years in an enclosed cavern through CANNIBALISM!!!! It's like they took ''Film/TheMatrix'''s bio-battery lunacy and [[UpToEleven turned it up to]] [[MemeticMutation OVER 9000!!!!!!]]. For those of you who were absent the day they taught about food chains in Middle School, the general rule of thumb is that every predator gets about 10% of the energy his prey took in. So, every generation of piranha should have lost 10/11 of their population. Even assuming they magically preserved 90% of the energy, they wouldn't have made it that long without producers in their food chain! And just to add insult to injury at the end of the movie we find out [[spoiler:they've been fighting the babies, which are apparently as big as their full-grown prehistoric ancestors. So, apparently, this process made them BIGGER]].

** Nala's father should logically be Mufasa or Scar, making her related to Simba, who became her mate. In an early script Nala was [[KissingCousins Simba's cousin], but that was removed in the ''King of the Jungle'' stage. According to ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' her father is an unknown, possibly rogue, male.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Sahara}}'', each snake sports a unique scale color and patterning unlike anything exhibited by real snakes. In Eva's case, her pattern consists of rows of ornate flowers imitating the style of Mehndi body art, also known as henna[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mehndi]].
