** In an official {{Yonkoma}} for ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'', Asuka repeats the line when [[GiantRobo Alberto the Shockwave]] does the same thing to an [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Angel]], although the former at least fights it to a draw.

Added DiffLines:

** This is especially bizarre when you consider the companion novel ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', where Beyond Birthday (somehow) had The Eyes, and L knew that. (To be fair, however, this LightNovel was not written until ''after'' the series was over, and was not originally part of the canon, but absorbed into it later. So it could be considered a type of RetCon.)

* With the possible exception of London's level of stupidity, ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' was completely realistic, but its sequel series ''TheSuiteLifeOnDeck'' introduced supernatural elements and at one point crossed over with ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''. Admittedly, there were two episodes in the original series that implied a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost]] and a visit to an AlternateUniverse were real in their [[TheStinger credit scenes]].

* In ''ComicBook/ThePhantom'', TheCowl of the title seems to live in [[ArbitrarySkepticism surprisingly strong denial]] of the weirder side of his LowFantasy world, refusing to admit in the existence of things like aliens or magic when he keeps several monsters (a unicorn, a stegosaurus and a family of primeval humanoids) as pets or his ancestors' journals discuss one ancestor who used magic to regenerate his gouged-out eyeballs.

A moment within a show that doesn't work within [[{{Consistency}} the conventions of the genre]]. For instance, a [[HappyDays UFO abduction in a]] DomCom, ''[[Anime/HeavyMetalLGaim or the sudden appearance of magical elves]]'' in a RealRobotGenre series.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' was, most of the time, a MagicalGirl show set in the modern day, where the only non-ordinary elements are the Sailor Team itself and the season-specific villain faction. The [[BeachEpisode beach episodes]] (once a season), however, were strange exceptions: episode 20 had Usagi, Ami and Rei confronted by an (apparently) real ghost, not connected to the Dark Kingdom in any way [[spoiler:it is actually the result of little esper girl manifesting something she couldn't control]]. Episode 67 featured no villains and thus no need for the girls to use their powers, instead presenting a couple of living ''dinosaurs''. Seriously.

** At the very end of the episode when Booth and Bones visit the gravesite Bones is shown actually seeing and acknowledging the ghost of the dead soldier, but since she was apparently never shown a photo of the deceased she never realizes she's seen someone who is dead.

* ''Series/SeeingThings'': This light-hearted 1980's Canadian dramedy was usually squarely in the MundaneFantastic camp. It had a single fantastic element: Toronto Gazette reporter Louis Ciccone suddenly starts manifesting precognitive flashes, which allow him to uncover and solve the show's typical mystery-of-the-week mysteries. However, in one very out-of-character episode, a mysterious, befuddled old man found wandering the streets of Toronto and claiming to be an alien actually turns out to BE an alien, complete with anti-gravity levitation powers and a laser battle with hostile reptilian aliens in a Toronto park.

* The ''Series/BabylonFive'' follow-up "The Lost Tales" introduces a demon from Hell into what had until then been a fairly hard sci-fi universe. The fans were not pleased.
