* Avoided entirely in ''TheCaineMutiny'', which replaced the novel's four-piper destroyer-minesweeper conversion with a ''Gleaves''-class conversion. The only problem is that this leaves a few comments about the ''Caine'' being a rusty old tub sounding slightly odd, since she would've been less than five years old during the Pacific campaign.

* ''VideoGame/GoldenEye1997'' was supposed to feature a ''La Fayette''-class frigate like the movie did; the ship actually looks nothing like the ''La Fayette'' and rather more like an American ''Brooke'' or ''Garcia''-class.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' plays with this in "The Silent Partners". A few members of Team S.P.H.I.N.X. need to track villain Monstroso on his ocean-bound command ship, so they try to borrow a high-tech hydrofoil from Jonas Venture, Jr. [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Captain]] tells them that the hydrofoil is decommissioned, but he can help them out by bringing his own ship out of mothballs. When we first met the Captain, he was leading a crew of "fake [[GhostPirate ghost pirates]]" stranded in the Sargasso Sea aboard an obsolete sailing ship, so that's what they get: a tiny "[[TheAllegedCar almost brigantine]]" named "[[{{Series/Degrassi}} Manny's Song]]" that was originally a sloop and re-rigged partly with pieces of a theme park ride. When the time comes to depart:
-->'''Captain:''' [[TalkLikeAPirate Avast]]! We set sail! ''[beat]'' Well?\\
'''Brock:''' What? What are we waiting for?\\
'''Captain:''' We have to actually ''[[LiteralMetaphor set sail]]''. Like you guys have to help me tie down those sails.
** Later, the Captain gets a little swept away:
-->'''Captain:''' Hard full aft! Rudder astern! Jib the mainsail! Tally the sheets, ya swabs!\\
'''Brock:''' What the hell does that all mean?\\
'''Captain:''' Nothing. Made it up. I'm just all excited to be a fake pirate again!

*** The ''HMS Agincourt'', a WWI era Dreadnaught armed with a whopping fourteen 12" guns in seven twin turrets (no other battleship ever built had more than twelve guns of that size or larger), provides another example of what firing a broadside looks like: "the resulting sheet of flame was big enough to create the impression that a battle cruiser had blown up; it was awe inspiring."

* The climax of ''Film/DownPeriscope'' involves the USS ''Stingray'', a recommissioned WorldWarTwo-era diesel sub, attempting to make a suicide run at Naval Station Norfolk as part of a war game, while being chased by the USS ''Orlando'' (a ''Los Angeles''-class nuclear sub). With their stealth gone, Lieutenant Commander Dodge orders the ''Stingray'' to surface and gun the engines. Rear Admiral Graham, in temporary command of the ''Orlando'', orders his sub to surface as well in order to get close (using StockFootage from ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober''). The problem with this is that, while it makes perfect sense for a WWII diesel sub to surface to move faster, it makes ''no'' sense for a modern nuclear sub to do the same, since this actually ''reduces'' the ''Orlando'''s speed. The ''Orlando'' should've stayed at periscope depth in order to maximize her speed.

* ''Manga/KuroganePukapukaTai'', an odd mixture of GirlsLove romp and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo military action, largely avoids this trope.

** The aircraft carriers on both sides were visibly modern designs with angled flight decks when viewed in long shots, due to the lack of "straight" deck carriers in RealLife since shortly after UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo.

** The main guns of USS ''Missouri'' are loaded and fired by a crew of maybe 10 sailors who were not specialist artillerymen. It took 47 highly trained men for ''each'' gun's machinery (charge hoists, shell hoists, gun laying, firing) during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo.

* In the 1982 Australian/Taiwanese movie ''Attack Force Z'', the WorldWarII commando unit is deployed from an Oberon-class submarine. You don't have to be a naval buff to notice this either, given the straight sail and lack of a deck gun on the ColdWar-era sub.

** The angled deck, invented late into the war, was so much superior (as it allows the carrier to launch and receive planes ''simultaneously'', without fearing that the landing plane would crash into the launchind one at the bow) that all straight-deck carriers were either decommissined soon after the end of hostilities, or converted into the angled deck configuraton, and no straight-deck carriers were built ever since.

* Any submarine that flipped upside down, as depicted in ''Film/TheNavigator'', would not right itself but would go straight to the bottom, guaranteed.
