** While hunting in the snow, Archer is initially scared of the Predator, before reminding himself that he only hunts in tropical jungles. However, the whole premise of ''Film/Predator2'' is a Predator loose in a city.

For RealLife examples of this in action regarding media, see CowboyBebopAtHisComputer. See also DanBrowned, for situations when an author falsely claims he did the research. For downplayed inaccuracies that requires more in-depth knowledge to notice, see ArtisticLicense and its subpages. If it's specifically math that is off, see WritersCannotDoMath.

** A double example, both InUniverse and out-of-universe: at one point, Cartman establishes a plan to ambush Wendy by kicking her in the balls. This, naturally, fails, as she's a girl and therefore doesn't have balls, something Cartman didn't know. However, what the ''writers'' failed to realize (similarly to the King of the Hill example above) is that, despite lack of testicles, getting kicked in the crotch hurts just as much for a girl as it does for a guy. Subverted later on when Wendy kicks a girl in the groin and it ''does'' hurt.

* The fact that ''WesternAimation/TheEmojiMovie'' portrays {{Troll}}s as a form of malware instead of real people is just one of the many many instances of this trope within the movie.

* [[https://tellygunge.wordpress.com/archives/story-archive/by-tellygunge/ Tellygunge's]] [[RealPersonFic celebrity fics]] will often involve a scene where a character getting [[CoveredInGunge gunged]] suffers a WardrobeMalfunction (or a PantyShot) at some point, and the narrative [[ShowDontTell making a remark]] about how [[InstantHumiliationJustAddYoutube it would become a YouTube hit]]. Except that it wouldn't because nudity is banned on Website/YouTube.[[note]]While it is true that the rules are often ignored by users, they would still be enforced for a viral hit because the large amount of views would cause [=YouTube=] to take notice of it.[[/note]] From the policy centre:
-->''Videos containing fetish content will be removed or age-restricted depending on the severity of the act in question. In most cases, violent, graphic, or humiliating fetishes are not allowed to be shown on [=YouTube=].''\\
''A video that contains nudity or other sexual content may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic, and it isn’t gratuitously graphic. For example, a documentary on breast cancer would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the same documentary might not be.''

** In Creator/RoosterTeeth's podcast, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiCmP10zhW0 episode #371]], Burnie goes on a rant about NASA's discovery of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/55_Cancri_e 55 Cancri E]], complaining about how NASA can announce so much detailed information about the surface of a exo-planet over 40 lightyears away when they are still unable to confirm if there is or isn't a 9th unknown planet in our own solar system. Quite a lot of viewers chimed in to point out that it's easier to see planets in another solar system than in our own because a distant solar system can be observed all at once.[[note]]Comparison: It's easier to read a T-shirt, front and back, that a friend is wearing than one that you're currently wearing.[[/note]]

*** They claim that the LicensedGame ''Quest for the Golden Hydrant'' was based on the episode "The Golden Hydrant", when the only thing the game had in common with the episode was that the plot involved Cat wishing to make money off the Golden Hydrant.[[www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiCmP10zhW0 episode #371]], Burnie goes on a rant about NASA's discovery of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/55_Cancri_e 55 Cancri E]], complaining about how NASA can announce so much detailed information about the surface of a exo-planet over 40 lightyears away when they are still unable to confirm if there is or isn't a 9th unknown planet in our own solar system.

* There is a Website/YouTube video called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlc_wTXdjjY Romance Languages Explained]]. Oh boy, where to begin? According to this video, there are only five Romance languages: French, Italian, Romanian, Portuguese, and European Spanish (apparently, Latin American Spanish is not a Romance language because it’s “a different dialect”). This claim is made all the more bizarre by the fact that we are later shown a list of many more Romance languages. Also, Romanian is supposedly much closer to Latin than to the other Romance languages because “Salut, ce mai faci?” (Romanian for “Hello, how are you?”) is ''obviously'' much more similar to the Latin translation “Salve, quid rerum geritis?” than to its French counterpart “Bonjour, comment allez-vous?” Yeah, don’t you see the similarity? True, the Latin "salve" is somewhat similar to the Romanian "salut", but ''the word "salut" also exists in French''. You may also notice that the Latin phrase doesn’t make much sense because the creator of the video uses Google Translate for everything. The video goes on to say that Vulgar Latin is “difficult to untangle.” Why? Well, the author simply shows us a tree of the Satem branch of the Indo-European languages and goes, “Look at how complex this is!” What the Satem languages have to do with the supposed difficulty of untangling Vulgar Latin is anyone’s guess. The real kicker is the claim that German (yes, we’re suddenly talking about German, a ''Germanic'' language, in a video that is supposedly about the ''Romance'' languages) is “derived from a contraction of Greek and Latin” (whatever that means — for the record, Greek is a Hellenic language (and, in modern day, the only living one) and German, which is more closely related to English than either of those, didn’t descend from either of those languages) which is somehow the reason that German words are, according to the narrator, “abruptly harsh.” Oh yeah, and “German languages” are also difficult to untangle, which, apparently, we “can see.” No explanation beyond that is given. All this is rounded out with baffling and irrelevant deviations discussing things like the Schengen Area. The people on the [[Website/{{Reddit}} subreddit]] /r/badlinguistics [[https://www.reddit.com/r/badlinguistics/comments/2zmrr8/romance_languages_explained/ had a field day]] with this video.
