* ''{{Awesomenauts}}'' being a homage to wacky 80s' sci-fi cartoons, revels on this trope when it comes to some of the Nauts' backstories. The silliest example so far is probably Commander Rocket, who somehow survived getting his head blown away and replaced by a head prosthesis. Don't ask...

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonsAdventures'', when Buster Bunny asked Calamity Coyote how the machine he created works, all he could say is that it works "[[DoingInTheScientist with magic]]". Buster even comments on "[[SarcasmMode the miracles of modern science]]".

* [[MadScientist Dr. Forrester]] from ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', his explanation for some of his more implausible inventions? "It would take a scientist to explain it, and I'm just too mad".

** ''Literature/TheRestaurantAtTheEndOfTheUniverse'' also has an ''accidental'' application of nonsensoleum, when a rock band using cutting-edge high-tech amplifiers achieves such loud volumes that the ''tectonic plate'' on which the concert is taking place flips like a flapjack, converting a former blasted wasteland into a fertile field of volcanic soil which becomes the garden spot of that world in just a few short years.

It also somehow cured the natives of their unwanted psychic powers, which were forced on the populace by the rest of the galaxy for being quiet and happy while the everyone else was miserable from the small talk they were forced into by social convention. The concert was to distract them from the constant buzz of other people's thoughts.

* Several ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' series, particularly anime series[[note]]''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' and ''Anime/TransformersCybertron being especially bad[[/note]] have characters gaining NewPowersAsThePlotDemands or some form of SuperMode or upgrade through [[HotBlooded A Burning Heart of JUSTICE]]. Basically, if a robot soldier gets enough righteous fury or [[{{Determinator}} sheer bloody-mindedness]], they'll spontaneously get a new paint job, vehicle mode, or weapon. The dub of ''Cybertron'' at least has the characters address the situation, where the original Japanese script had the cast simply continue as if nothing unusual had happened.

* In ''ZakMcKrackenAndTheAlienMindbenders'', the eponymous protagonist makes a space suit out of a wetsuit, a fish bowl (leaving his fish in the kitchen) and [[DuctTapeForEverything copious amounts of duct tape]]. However, you also need an air tank or you will suffocate.
