Added DiffLines:
* ''Manga/{{Arachnid}}'' and ''Caterpillar'' have characters [[AnimalMotifs themed after]] all sorts of arthropods. Some of them have really unusual abilities for what appeared to be a mundane setting. Whenever one of the assassins does something, the narration goes on wild life documentary-esque tangents about how the characters' skills relate to the bugs they represent. This more often than not doesn't explain a thing about how, for example, Oki Megumi has cockroach superpowers or how Kabutomushi is immune to nerve gas and has her heart covered by steel armor.

* ''Webcomic/StarslipCrisis'''s Superlinear drive works on the principle that the fastest path between two points is a straight line. The superlinear drive finds the straight line, then it finds an even straighter one to travel, thus allowing FasterThanLightTravel.

-->'''Brain:''' In the office kitchen, I will simply stage an accident utilizing the microwave oven and the non-dairy powdered creamer. For no one really knows how a microwave works. -->'''Pinky:''' But, why the powdered creamer, Brain? -->'''Brain:''' No one really knows how ''that'' works, either.

* ''"It runs on pure madness!"'' is a principle used quite often in ''ShadeTheChangingMan''. Things like Angel Catchers and Time Machines are built from unlikely whirlwinds of parts, arranged in implausible configurations, and powered by Shade's insane faith that they would work. For a time, even Shade's own body was formed and held together with madness.

** Sometimes happens with things outside the question and answer panel. For example, the reason Brook kept his FunnyAfro even after being reduced to a skeleton is that he had "strong roots". *** He also claims that milk has healing properties for him because "Milk strengthens the bones", Usopp calls him out on this one.

* Although it's half-TechnoBabble, half-MagiBabble, there has to be space here for RobertRankin's ''Raiders of the Lost Car Park''. The explanation for where TheFairFolk are hiding, which would boggle [[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Ford Prefect]]: if you've ever tried to glue a rectangular map onto a globe of the same scale, you'll find it doesn't fit properly. The bits of the map that don't fit onto the globe are the regions in which they hide out. These are only accessible to humans by playing certain notes on an ocarina that has been reinvented with a power drill. And that's the part that, comparatively speaking, ''makes sense''.

* '''Manga/OnePiece'''. Just, One Piece. Not very surprising considering the premise is that certain fruits give you superpowers.

* The {{Fanservice}}-laden furry comic 'ComicBook/'TankVixens'' achieved FasterThanLightTravel through the "Credulity Drive". The drive worked by playing a "hyperspace" light show followed by an image of the destination on all of a spaceship's screens, and the sheer gullibility of the crew would cause the ship to arrive. As long as nobody on board knew how the drive worked. This becomes important when the BigBad enters the coordinates for ''Gone with the Wind''...
