* In ''The Man Who Evolved'', by Creator/EdmondHamilton, a man who goes through [[EvolutionPowerUp accelerated]] [[GoalOrientedEvolution evolution]] shows off his increased intelligence by making ''gold'' out of common chemicals. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] -- up to a point -- as SuperIntelligence would make him capable of things that are impossible according to normal science.

* Creator/IsaacAsimov wrote a series of articles about the endochronic properties of resublimated thiotimoline, a substance that dissolves in water before the water is added.
** In this case, though, it's essential to remember that Asimov was a '''professor''' of biochemistry, so it's a given that he used the trope as an anecdote or parody, as opposed to the use of the trope out of genuine belief that chemistry "works like that" due to lack of scientific knowledge.

* Chemical X in ''ThePowerPuffGirls'' -- it has the power to create life, give any living being superpowers with no side-effects, and apparently it's in abundant enough quantities to be regularly abused..

* The agreed-on origin for SelfDemonstratingArticlek/TheJoker, who plummeted into a disposal tank full of various chemicals. In ''DeathOfTheFamily'', Batman asides that he's studied the crime scene and knows the mixture by heart, but on sleepless nights finds himself poring over the list all over again. A combination like that should have eaten the Joker ''alive.'' (Batman gets trapped in the very same tank by Harley Quinn, and the chemical mixture chews straight through his Batsuit.)

* In ''FamilyMatters'', Urkel creates a machine that can create clones or turn people into other people (e.g., Steve Urkel into [[SexierAlterEgo Stephan]]). It required vaguely described "chemicals" to work, which were poured into a slot in the machine.
* ''LookAroundYou'' ascribes several ridiculous properties to chemicals such as a mixture of sulphur and champagne granting the drinker EyeBeams. Of course, this is all [[LittleKnownFacts part of the joke]].
