* On the positive end, Meltzer first broke the rating scale for a June 3rd 1994 match at Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling, which had been shooting 5 out regularly during the decade, between Wrestling/MitsuharuMisawa and Toshiaki Kawada, which got 6 stars to symbolize he thought it might have been the greatest pro wrestling match of all time. Another match wouldn't get such a rating from Meltzer until ''The Wrestle Kingdom 11'' main event between Wrestling/KennyOmega and then-reigning [[Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling IWGP]] Heavyweight champion Wrestling/KazuchikaOkada on January 4th 2017. Meltzer then later stated that the second match between Omega and Okada a few months later at ''Dominion 6.11'' was better than the first, giving it 6.25 stars.

* ''WebVideo/TierZoo'' couldn't rank the players of the very, ''very'' weird Abyssal Server because nobody has any real knowledge of it aside from a few screenshots and twitch clips--just enough to make it clear that the server is completely different from any other. (In other words, he couldn't rank the animals of the ocean floor because scientists have very little information about it and the conditions are incomparable to anything on land.)

* ''Series/MythBusters'' (see above) once had a myth fail to yield useful results—the Supersize JATO Rocket Car, because the rocket car blew up before it could launch off the ramp. Adam decided to call this myth “Appropriately Supersized”.

--> '''Unshaved Mouse:''' Dreamworks? She’s a five year old girl. If you can’t sell a five year old girl a cartoon with horses, you have FAILED. You have failed more totally than it should be possible for human beings ''to'' fail. You have created a masterpiece of ineptitude. ''You broke the damn scale.''

* Filmmaker Dan Bell has two main series on his Website/YouTube channel: one where he explores dying/dead malls, and another where he explores [[HotelHell creepy]] and/or [[NoTellMotel sleazy]] hotels and motels across the country with his friends. They often rate the properties on a 1-5 scale with 5 being best, given how rundown they are. After discovering a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvNbsi4aDuk motel in Maryland]] where the rooms were literally ''covered in blood'', one of Bell's companions gave the room a 0.
