*** [[spoiler: In the same arc Erza beating Kyouka makes no sense whatsoever. After the demon gets in her OneWingedAngel form, Erza becomes nothing more but a punching bag, with all of her five senses robbed. And yet Erza manages to fight properly without her five senses and beat Kyouka. This completely defies not just all logic but also everything we know about human's biology.]] *** [[spoiler: In the same Arc, Mard Geer was only defeated thanks to this. After he casted a powerful UnholyNuke created solely to kill an immortal like Zeref, Gray somehow knows how to cancel the spell, even though a)He just became a Devil Slayer like thirty minutes before and b)It was never explained if Devil Slayers were immune to curses. Dragon Slayers don´t seem to be be immune to dragons' attacks so why are Devil Slayers immune to curses? And Natsu unleashes Dragon Force, something that can't be done without consuming a strong source of magic unless the user is a Third Generation Dragon Slayer, and Natsu is a First Generation Dragon Slayer (while it's hinted this might have had something to do with Igneel leaving his body, it's never truly explained).]]

The only thing that even partially makes up for this is that Erza completely collapses afterwards and it's up to Minerva to finish the job of killing the demon.]] *** [[spoiler: In the same Arc, Mard Geer was only defeated thanks to this.

Again, the only thing that makes this less glaring is the fact neither of these were enough to actually beat Mard Geer (Natsu's Dragon Force just knocked him around and made him extra pissed) and it took Gray shooting him while he was busy trying to kill the utterly spent Natsu that to finally bring him down.]]

**Let's not even get started on [[PuritySue Lacus Clyne]]

* In the latter half of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'', Leina is supposedly killed by a falling Mobile Suit. She [[UnexplainedRecovery inexplicably returns]] near the end of the series, having been rescued by Sayla Mass from the original ''Gundam'' series. How this is possible is never actually explained, with Sayla's cameo being FanService more than anything.

*** However, this might end up explained later on. Blackbeard states that his Devil Fruit can absorb anything, which might include the powers of other Devil Fruits. Similarly, Kuma can repel anything, even abstract concepts like pain, fatigue and battle-damage, so it's not completely out of bounds.

* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', the "Thunder Armour" seen during the Advance Generation makes all the others look puny in it's glorious stupidity. Pikachu uses a electric attack that gets reflected back to itself and Swellow, which somehow becomes some sort of ''armour.'' Essentially granting the user(s) ''invincibility'' out of nowhere, without being used again '''at all''' in the rest of the series? What makes you scratch your head, though, is how [[AllLovingHero Ash]] came up with the idea in the first place. More importantly, how does his Swellow not get harmed at all? It's a Flying type, which is ''weak'' to Electric Type attacks. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdRndd1ZrDA See it here.]]

* The [[{{Retcon}} retconning]] of the Prince's personality in ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones'' counts as this. The stark contrast between his snarky but loveable ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime Sands of Time]]'' personality and his DarkerAndEdgier ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin Warrior Within]]'' personality is resolved by having the latter becoming a sinister voice in the Prince's head, fuelled by his exposure to the Sands of Time, a symptom which had never been so much as hinted at in the previous. On the other hand, [[TropesAreNotBad this new characterization was so well-written that most fans didn't complain.]]

This is odd because [[spoiler: Kaileena didn't come back as a ghost when she was killed in the previous game]] and the game provides no explaination of why she couldn't do it before the Vizir's death.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has Pendulum Summoning its even explored inverse. Yuya is the first one to make a pendulum summon and is the only one with pendulum cards. After defeating his first opponent with that method, people would wonder how he did it out of the blue, or they think he cheated and hacked the system to do it.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has Pendulum Summoning its Summoning; it's even explored inverse. Yuya is InUniverse. After the first one match he used the ability, everyone is in awe over Yuya's seemingly amazing new Summoning skill. However, when his second match ends with him being unable to make a pendulum summon use it and is the only one with pendulum cards. After defeating his first opponent with flattened by Yuzu, everyone becomes convinced that method, people would wonder he's nothing but a cheater. However, Reiji becomes determined on figuring out how it works so he did it out of the blue, or they think he cheated and hacked the system to do can mass produce it.

* In ''Manga/DeadTube [[spoiler:Mizuno]] seemed to have gotten mangled just as horribly as all the other [[spoiler:Film Research Club]] members, even showing beforehand she didnít think nothing of Machiya, labeling him as trash like all other traitors did, with that it seemed she died with them; come a few chapters later she is revealed to be alive, recovering at the hospital with no visible scars, Machiya decided to spare her to be of use for him later, [[spoiler:Mizuno]] is filled with gratitude and treats Machiya nicely like she did when it is all an act except it is for real this time around.
