* One editor on the Disney Wiki reckoned that all cameos in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' movie are either Creator/{{Disney}} or Creator/{{Nintendo}}, leading to [[AllAnimationIsDisney All Games Are Nintendo]]. They even gave among the "Nintendo" examples, VideoGame/PacMan and VideoGame/DigDug -- both of which are Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment. This edit also ignored the VideoGame/{{Qix}} (Taito) and VideoGame/QBert (Gottleib), amongst other decidedly not-Nintendo examples. Even better is the fact that Sonic and Dr. Eggman are from [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog a series]] made by [[Creator/{{Sega}} a former competitor]] of Nintendo's and never appeared on a Nintendo console until the early '00s.

* The final episode of ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' is fought in the World of Monsters, and has the FinalBoss use various monsters from the past ''Kamen Rider'' series that had been defeated by the titular riders. Amongst said monsters are [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Undeads]], [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Dopants]], and [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Zodiarts]], who had all been defeated nonlethally by the Riders from their respective shows. While the presence of the Undeads can be explained away by being Undeads defeated by non-''Blade'' Riders[[note]] as ''Blade'' Riders defeat Undead by sealing them in Rouze Cards[[/note]], there is no such explanation for why the Zodiarts or Dopants could be there, other than to have monsters from all the previous series present.

* ''FanFic/Gensokyo20XX'' almost has on a meta-level when it comes to Tosca, an opera she alluded to the author initially thinking it was by Shakespeare. Fret not, she later corrects her mistake both in RealLife and in-universe.

** Of course, this Critical Research Failure may be intentional from the writer's side and would certainly add another layer to the comedy -- Linus gets so caught up in looking for a deeper meaning in the text that he ends up [[ComicallyMissingThePoint blatantly ignoring what the text actually says]].

** In the ''Snow White and the Seven Clever Boys'' episode of "Bad Game Covers", he states that the art on the cover should not resemble the bad in-game graphics. It's actually a ''2D'' cartoon with 3D backgrounds. [[Horrible/WesternAnimation Not that it improves anything, though.]]

* In the '70s horror novel ''Literature/TheSentinel'', author Jeffrey Konvitz talks about translating ''Literature/ParadiseLost'' from the "original Latin". Yeah, John Milton was from this place--you may have heard of it--called ''England''.

* ''Series/SchittsCreek'': Moira gets offered a part in a moving shooting in Bosnia that will be released only in neighboring countries and pay in "local Baltic currency." Bosnia and the other named countries are Balkan, not Baltic. Furthermore, there is no "local Baltic currency," as all three Baltic nations now use the euro.

** Agent Smith mentions his contempt for humans, claiming that humans are the only creatures that don't instinctively seek an equilibrium to stop population growth, saying they are more like viruses than mammals. Many mammals have gone extinct through overpopulation, when something happens to the population of their predators, and many others have reproduced out of control when introduced to a new environment (rabbits in Australia for example).

Many mammals have gone extinct through overpopulation, In reality, all animals will reproduce out of control if given the opportunity (i.e. enough food and a lack of predators). Humanity has witnessed (and caused) this to happen in a wide range of species when something happens to the population of their predators, and many others have reproduced out of control predators or when introduced to a new environment (rabbits in Australia for example).

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' claimed in one episode that the mysterious "[[{{Unobtainium}} Bicenthium alloy]]" was extremely rare on any planet except Earth... except the "alloy" was ''iron'', the sixth most common element in the galaxy. And iron ''isn't an alloy''.

** In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', Skurd, a [[SuperIntelligence Super-Intelligent]] shapeshifting parasite the size of a golf ball who feeds on DNA, is stated to be an unicellular organism. Unicellular organisms are ''much'' small in real life (most of them can't even be seen with the naked eye), and ''none'' of them is complex enough to have even ''human'' intelligence.
