\n* This fallacy is used on the three Erics in ''[[Literature/WaysideSchool Sideways Stories From Wayside School]]''. Eric Bacon, the skinniest person in the class, is called "Fatso" because the other two Erics are fat. Eric Fry, the best athlete in the class, is presumed to be clumsy and weak because the other two Erics are. And Eric Ovens, one of the nicest people in the class, is presumed to be mean because the other two Erics are mean.

** There is also the New Testament command in the first letter to Timothy which could be interpreted as an active instruction to Christians to go out and consume alcohol:
-->"''Take not only water, but drink also a little wine for thy stomach's sake.'' (1 Tim 5:23)
It has been noted that this couold well render heretical, or at least heterodox, teetotal denominations such as Methodism...

* An anti-abortion ''ComicBook/ChickTract'' claims abortion is wrong because Hitler killed Jewish babies, and therefore doctors who carry out abortions are as bad as Hitler.[[note]]To put it more accurately, Hitler believed both in killing Jewish babies and in ''not'' killing Aryan babies, so neither side has a leg to stand on here. Except of course, the pro-choice side, as the one thing Hitler definitely ''wasn't'' in favour of was letting "Aryan" and Jewish women themselves decide whether to have abortions.[[/note]]

Except of course, Jews (among other "undesirables"), while banning them for "Aryans", who were rewarded for having many children. So the pro-choice side, as the side will simply counter that one thing Hitler definitely ''wasn't'' in favour of was letting "Aryan" and Jewish women themselves decide whether to have abortions.[[/note]]

Compare GuiltByAssociationGag, for situations where a person is assumed to be just like the other people he happens to be with at the moment.

* "Milspec" parts can end up doing this. While the military spec is above consumer grade in some applications (eg ''vicious'' drops tests for electronics, though the ruthless burn-in for components usually isn't a feature), for firearm parts it's a rather different story. The implication is that it's "suitable for actual war" because the military fights wars and all, and should therefore be pretty spiffy, but people tend to forget it's also "suitable for equipping thousands or millions of infantry" and so milspec gun parts tend to be pretty middle-of-the-road compared to high-end commercial parts.

* Due to the Creator/SpikeTV incarnation of Ren and Stimpy being made specifically for older viewers (hence the name "'Adult' Party Cartoon), and due to the nature of a number of episodes of [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow the original Nickelodeon series]] (which, for better or for worse, was intended to be a family show[[note]]The infamous [[Recap/RenandStimpy2x07SonofStimpy Son of Stimpy]] episode notwithstanding.[[/note]]), this has caused some people (and websites, including TheOtherWiki) to refer to the entirety of the franchise (such as it is) as being "adult" animation, which unfortunately was partially brought on by both the show, and Viacom (and by extension, [[Creator/JohnKricfalusi the original creator]]) themselves due to reruns of the original show also being shown on Spike TV. Because of this, Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} (who has been planning a number of reboots of older Nicktoons) has officially declared the original show to be ExiledFromContinuity, although The Splat (now [=NickSplat=]) still occasionally shows reruns of the original show, and the DVD release of the original show from Paramount continues to be available.
