** [[spoiler:Kyoko's survival. Not only does it completely contradict everything we were told about the NG Code poison, not only is the only evidence of foreshadowing a nondescript pill bottle (when ''nothing'' previously suggested the poison even ''had'' a cure), but it completely undermines the supposedly happy ending due to Makoto having everything handed to him and Munataka basically losing everything.]]

** Blackbeard having the ability to absorb a second Devil Fruit was this. It had been established that no one can have two devil fruit abilities, yet he somehow absorbs the Gura Gura no Mi from Whitebeard's corpse, and it's stated that the reason he can survive two abilities is because Blackbeard himself is somehow unique, not his Devil Fruit. They don't say ''how'' he's unique, just that he is.

It's not his explained how (though there's an amount of Foreshadowing building up on how Devil Fruit. They don't say ''how'' he's unique, just Fruits work such as Chopper talking about blood vessals in relation so it's likely an answer will be revealed by Oda at some point; [[spoiler: one theory is that the Devil Fruit "power" is stored in the heart and Blackbeard can handle multiple Devil Fruits because he is.has more than one heart.]]

* ''Anime/YuGiOh''

* ''Anime/YuGiOh''''Anime/YuGiOh'' and its subsequent series combines this with TheMagicPokerEquation. The protagonists frequently get just the right combination of cards with the right effects to get them out of their predicament and win the duel. Especially when it's the card they just drew when their turn rolls around. It gets increasingly egregious if said situational card proceeds to never be used by the same character in subsequent duels.
** The Duelist Kingdom arc may fall into this trope more often than usual largely owing to the game's rules not being properly defined yet and cards having undefined or inconsistent effects.
** Noah manages to draw and play a series of cards that illustrate the creation of the world and the development of civilization, all in the right order.



** And then attacking with a 3rd monster in order to ''[[MoreThanInfinite exceed infinity]]''.

** How many times has Shun begun with three Vanishing Lanius in his opening hand?
** Smile World is a really mediocre card, giving every monster a 100 ATK boost for each monster on the field. To make Smile World have a proper impact on the outcome of the Duel, several convoluted combinations of card effects have been used.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhVRAINS'' has Skills for duelists in Speed Duels. Playmaker's Skill is most illustrative of the trope, allowing him to, while his LP is 1000 or less, randomly gain access to a card in the Data Storm. What can be found in the Data Storm? Anything goes, especially if it can allow Playmaker to stage a comeback.

* During Creator/WarrenEllis' brief ''[[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]]'' run from the 90's, the title character was depowered as part of a BroughtDownToBadass plot. When Creator/PeterDavid wanted to have Thor fight the Hulk in his ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'' run, he realized Thor would need to be at full strength. To that end, he wrote a scene where Thor banged Mjolnir on the ground while reminiscing about the good old days, which somehow magically restored his powers. The closest thing to an explanation given was "Even a god may believe in miracles," which still isn't much of an answer.

* Website/GoAnimate "[[YouAreGrounded Grounded]]" videos will pull out all the stops to make sure a character gets grounded and humiliated. Recently, many video makers have taken to the term "[=GoAnimate=] Logic" to explain how anyone can do anything and how everything gets put back to normal.
