* Medieval bestiaries contain many bizarre "facts" about both real and mythological animals. One [[http://bestiary.ca/beasts/beast1195.htm bestiary]] has the "Barnacle Goose," a bird that ''grows from a tree hanging by it's beak,'' and ''dies when it falls off if it lands on the ground instead of water.'' People ''[[MedievalMorons actually believed]]'' this.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' has holy beans, which can instantly satisfy the appetite of even the {{big|eater}}gest eaters and will recover the stamina of those who eat them, as well as immediately heal all injuries bar amputation. ''Anime/YoSonGokuAndHisFriendsReturn'' introduces Chichi's grateful radish, a seed that can spout into hand sized vegetables overnight but will root itself in the ground so hard regular humans can't even remove the smallest sprouts, and they can grow their roots to extend to the base of a mountain.
