* The [[https://youtu.be/hQW8dz8yAnI?t=6m4s 101 Facts About Space]] video uploaded by [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin 101Facts]] has '''A LOT''' of inaccuracies that would make astronomers and space enthusiasts cry, but by far the most egregious example on the video is fact #23 where the speaker says it would take ''70,000'' years to reach the sun. This is completely false. Not only had NASA already sent a probe to the Sun before called Ulysses, but several other spacecraft had also crossed distances in our Solar System greater than 1 AU (the mean distance between the Earth and the Sun). The 70,000 year claim is only true for the ''other'' closest star to us called Alpha Centauri.

*** Brown learned at some point that UsefulNotes/ChristopherColumbus is buried in the Cathedral of Seville. Or maybe Santo Domingo. So, being ignorant of {{UsefulNotes/Catholicism}} beyond the fact that [[AuthorAppeal he's supposed to hate it]], he made the logic leap that Columbus was made a saint. And everyone knows that Catholics chop up saints to make them into relics, right...?

** When asked why Connie preferes using the library rather than the Internet when researching for school work, she said that the last time she trusted the internet "she ended up writing an egregious essay that claimed that racoons have EyeBeams."

* In ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7269974/1/Her-Life-or-Mine Her Life Or Mine]]'' at one point relationship between Phoenix and Iris is pointed out as it could hurt his case since he'll be biased. Considering that Phoenix is ''defending'' Iris, being on her side is ''exacly what he's supposed to do!'' Considering that Phoenix canonically defends his friends all the time[[labelnote:note]]4 to 7 cases out of 12 he had in the original trilogy, depending on how loosely you define "friend"[[/labelnote]] there is no excuse for that.

* ''VideoGame/{{Scratches}}'' takes place around the 1970s. This setting has led to two mistakes.
** When Michael Arthate keeps calling the bank, the employee on the other hand eventually answers the phone with the words that he will call the police if Michael keeps calling. Given the above setting, the employee's phone would not have any Caller ID, making it impossible for him to know that it's Michael calling, without even saying anything.
** One newspaper article talks about how a large amount of money was stolen, with the currency listed as Euros. The Euro currency was not established until 1999, a good 20 years after this game takes place. There's also the fact that Britain never took on the Euro currency and has retained using Pounds, making this a double-whopper of a mistake.
