* '''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt''': Tenjian, a superhuman with [[AnIcePerson the power to manipulate ice]], has the ability to freeze things below absolute zero. If we assume that temperatures below absolute zero can exist, they would actually be warmer than any positive temperature.

** He can also apparently survive [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDooom falling hundreds of feet from a crashing airplane, down the slopes of a snow capped mountain and off of a cliff into a rapid river as long as he's on a flimsy inflatable raft the entire time...]]

* The physical complications listed above have caused some fans to speculate that Superman's power is not actually physical strength and invulnerability, but rather a form of telekinesis. For a while ComicBook/PostCrisis, that ''was'' the canon explanation of his powers in the comics. It still is the explanation of the powers of Superman's blatant MarvelUniverse {{Expy}} Gladiator.

* ''TheNewAdventuresOfSuperman'' episode "Rain of Iron". A {{villain}} on Earth fires an iron ball at an asteroid in space. The ball bounces off the asteroid and flies back to Earth. If an iron ball hit an asteroid it would just embed itself, not bounce away like a rubber ball.

* Applies to nearly every MechaShow which lacks InertialDampening, ''especially'' those which feature {{Real Robot}}s bouncing around like pinballs. Although it's possible that the [[AppliedPhlebotinum phlebotinum du jour]] explains why the robot can move like that, most series fail to fully account for the effects of such violent acceleration on the ''pilot''. Methods used to avert this include, in order of increasing effectiveness, (1) reinforced pilot suits and anti-motion-sickness drugs (''VisualNovel/MuvLuvAlternative''), (2) suspending the pilot in a gel or liquid medium (''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''), (3) encasing the cockpit in some sort of ArtificialGravity field, possibly phlebotinum-powered (''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' and its sequels, although [[AllThereInTheManual not explicitly stated]]).

* In the {{DCU}} Daxamites are vulnerable to ''lead radiation''--for those not familiar with the periodic table, lead is generally considered a ''stable'' element in its most common isotopes, meaning it is not vulnerable to spontaneous radioactive decay in the same way that, say, uranium is. (This has been retconned into a severe allergy to lead, even in trace atmospheric amounts.)

* ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa''. That aspect of the series, specially of the anime, makes for ''a lot'' of running gags in the Spanish fandom. [[http://www.lawebdefisica.com/humor/oliver/ There's even an article trying to explain why the characters seem able to bend physical laws to their will.]] So far, they've reached the conclusion that CaptainTsubasa's Japan is a little asteroid orbiting the Sun, wich would explain why you can't see the goal until you reach the penalty area or how [[InvincibleHero Tsubasa]] is able to [[InASingleBound jump twice the goal's height]] to score with his [[ThatOneAttack Scissors Kick]], due to Asteroidal Japan's smaller gravity.
