** Apparently magic can do everything... except regrow a ruined mane, as "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E20ItIsntTheManeThingAboutYou It Isn't The Mane Thing About You]]" demonstrates. This is [[FridgeLogic even more questionable]] since perfectly workable mustache-growing spells [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters have been shown]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel to be effective, twice]].

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' was promised to touch on the origins of perennial BigBad Ganon, but how the game executed it falls under this. [[spoiler:After defeating Demise, the GreaterScopeVillain and Ghirahim's master, he suddenly curses Link's reincarnations and Zelda's descendants to forever fight the "incarnation of his hatred." It's never foreshadowed that he even has the ability to do this, and it doesn't help that there is no visual feedback to represent the curse, nor is there any explanation as to how it works. It only serves as a very thin explanation for Ganon's tenacity to come back, even though his connection to the Triforce of Power already explained that.]]

* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'', where Vader does the famous LukeIAmYourFather scene with Luke... and then makes every other major ''Franchise/StarWars'' [[TheReveal reveal]] to Luke, including that Leia is his sister, TheEmpire will be defeated by [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Ewoks]], and several of the much maligned additions from the Prequel Trilogy. Luke is left increasingly bewildered and confused until he starts to think that Vader is ''trolling him'', and finally goes up to Vader, calmly tells him "[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Look, if you're not going to take this seriously... I'm out]]" and walks away.

** Harry's entire tragic backstory was kick-started when his parents chose a wrong person as a confidant to entrust their location to, a requirement for a spell used to conceal their home from Voldemort. It made a certain logical and poetic sense that the confidant would need to remain outside the effective area of the spell, since it's a common convention that magic requires some kind of sacrifice or tangible obligation. Then, in book 7, another character casually mentions being the confidant for their own concealment spell, thus prompting the question why couldn't Harry's parent's do the same thing.

* The first issue of ComicBook/DCRebirth's ''[[Comicbook/DetectiveComicsRebirth Detective Comics]]'' reveals that Kate Kane (Comicbook/{{Batwoman}}) has known that her cousin Bruce Wayne is Batman for a year and a half. There is no explanation given for her knowing except a playful admonishment that he not underestimate her, because "[they're] cousins." It's later explained that she once shot Batman in the leg when he caught her monitoring him, and that Bruce randomly visited her a few days later with a noticeable limp in the same leg, and Kate put two-and-two together. If this explanation is true, however, then it makes Bruce either seem incredibly inept (since he ''knew'' Kate and her father were monitoring Batman and wanted to know more about him), or just dismissive of Kate's intelligence despite the meeting possibly having been a test.

* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', many accuse the existence and function of the [[spoiler: Society of the Blind Eye]] as being this, despite a previous mention or two as the [[spoiler: society]] only really seems to exist for this one episode.
