** Which in turn is part of [[HumanAliens Eros]] saying that an atomic bomb works by exploding a single atom, so that a bomb which detonates sunlight will be vastly more powerful due to sunlight having many atoms.

* In WebVideo/{{Gnoggin}}'s "Pac-Man Theory: The True Story UNVEILED!" video, he claims that ''VideoGame/PacMan'' debuted in 1985, when it was actually in 1980. This blasts a hole in his whole theory, as he says that each of the ghosts represents an infectious disease and that Blinky stands for HIV, but that virus was not known to science until 1981.

* In their video about sexuality, ''WebAnimation/ExtraCredits'' they talk about how tired the trope of a tough male with a feminine side is. In a quick visual montage of examples, they show ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'''s Lightning, who anyone looking at the character can tell you is ''female''. Of course, they've admitted to deliberately including errors in their videos in an effort to prevent viewers from blindly accepting everything they say, so this may very well be intentional. Or an AssPull.

** At one point in their video about faith in video games being nothing more than a simple mechanic instead of something more meaningful they segue into a completely inaccurate description of earth 20th century physics, which they claim to have all been made on faith. That is ''completely inaccurate.'' Physics was undergoing rapid advancement in part BECAUSE the up-and-comers of the field were challenging the classic assumptions, which is the opposite of faith.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' a ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' cutaway has George [=McFly=] accuse his wife of cheating on him with "the guy that set [them] up" because she insisted on naming their son Marty after him. Anyone who actually watched the film would know that Past Lorraine only ever knew time-traveling Marty as her friend "Calvin Klein", because he never used his real name.

* Channel Frederator's "107 Facts" videos occasionally have rather glaring cases of misinformation. One particular example is claiming that Creator/DanCastellaneta voiced Squidward Tentacles in some episodes of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' instead of Creator/RodgerBumpass, when the only source of information claiming that was an article for an upcoming episode that turned out to be a hoax. Another damning case was in their video containing 107 facts about ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'', where they acknowledged that Fred Jones' voice actor Creator/FrankWelker did voice work for ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' and the ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries'', but claimed that he voiced the character Barricade in both of them. G1 Barricade was a toy that came out a good while after the Generation 1 Transformers cartoon ended, and the Barricade of the live-action films was in fact voiced by Creator/JessHarnell. Creator/CraigBartlett has called out the show for their ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' vido, for spreading false information about the show such as him asking the network to remove an episode from rotation.

* ''WebAnimation/TerribleWritingAdvice'' suggests writers to do this to the point that it's a RunningGag. Some examples include not researching the issues surrounding environmentalism when attempting to write a GreenAesop, and basing an evil empire off of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany since picking another empire would require the author to open up a history book.

* ''Series/{{Futurama}}'' refers to the ''[[Film/TheMatrix Matrix]]'' example given above, with Bender saying "Doesn't that violate the Second Law of Thermodynamics? Wouldn't just about anything make a better battery than a human? Like a potato? Or a ''battery''?" Leela explains that while everyone at the time it was made thought ''The Matrix'' was the worst movie ever because of this "mistake", it turns out the film actually got it right. Of course, this is a universe in which it's possible to travel between stars in hours or at most days because "scientists increased the speed of light in 2208," besides which, in the real world, the original movie is still roundly considered very good by most people who have seen it.
