* ''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”.

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.

* WebVideo/{{Brutalmoose}}, in his "Brutalfoods" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88l41TVd6wQ review of Lunchables pizza]], assigns "Ian Points" to the various boxes. For the first meal (all-cheese pizzas) he grants it 10 points for the pizzas themselves, 8 for the Capri-Sun drink, and 15 for the Air Head dessert... then takes away 100 for the incredibly terrible comic that came with it, giving it a final score of -67. For the second (pepperoni and cheese) he grants 2 for the pizza, 9 for the Capri-Sun and 10 for the Crunch bar, then takes away ''500'' for another comic that is not only terrible, but is in fact the ''exact same'' one as the first, leaving it at -479. The third (deep-dish) gets 5 for the pizza, 3 for the Cheez-Its, 7 for the fruit roll-up, 1 for the Kool-Aid mix, 20 for the water bottle the Kool-Aid goes into... and then takes away '''''20,0000''''' because he decided to put at least a bit of all the others into the Kool-Aid and drink it all at once, to which he jokes "they didn't tell me that I had to do this, but [[NeverMyFault it's still their fault somehow]]" and leaving it with -19,964 points. By the time of the fourth (a "healthier" organic version) he's crossing over into the Meaningless Value area, giving it no Ian Points whatsoever and, when summing up the scores at the end, labeling it as simply "BAD".

* ''Series/ThirteenReasonsWhy'': New Zealand censors, when classifying the show, had to build a new classification of RP18 (Persons under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian) from scratch, created specifically for the series. The censors deemed the subject matter too important to teens for the show to be given the existing R18 rating, yet the RP16 rating was considered to be too low of a rating and did not cover vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds in a country with the highest teen suicide rate in the OECD.

* In the Website/WhatIf entry "[[https://what-if.xkcd.com/65/ Twitter timeline height]], Randall Monroe has an analogy involving [[RidiculousFutureSequelisation twenty-seven]] ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'' sequels, and illustrates this with a list of their star ratings. While most of them don't seem to be very good, ''The Land Before Time XXVI'' somehow acquires an additional star. (Some of the others fall into the "meaningless" category with "half a star, but not the first one", "the bottom halves of all the stars" and so on.)

Conversely, ''The Land Before Time XXVI'' somehow goes Out Of Bounds and scores five stars out of four.
