* Minmax of ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' manages to create a sword made of nothingness by playing around with a magic sword and a hole in reality. It's theorized that the sword is powered by Minmax's lack of understanding of what it is or how it works.

** Nuclear cars could work, but be too dangerous and expensive in real life. It's possible that cars switched to nuclear power due to the shortage of oil which triggered the resource wars. In Fallout universe no one really cared about danger from radiation and apparently there are more radioactive elements (both in number of kinds and amount) than we know about.

** James Woods is, at one point, seemingly KilledOffForReal but than turns up again later. When asked for an explanation he gives an absurd and laughably insane explanation involving a woman's soul being transferred into his body to sustain him. It [[CloudCuckooLander fits perfectly with the character]].

* ''TheSimpsons'' episode "Don't Fear the Roofer", near the end. In the story, Homer gets his new friend Ray Magini to fix his roof. However, other people soon begin to postulate that Ray doesn't actually exist, since everyone who was with Homer when he spoke to Ray claimed not to have actually seen him. Thinking that Homer is delusional, his family takes him to the doctor, and after several treatments of painful therapy, Homer thinks he's back to sanity again. But then they find out that Ray was real all along, and that there were logical explanations as to why no one else saw him -- except for one case where Bart couldn't see Ray even though he was in plain sight and should have been able to. Guest star StephenHawking then shows up and delivers the trope -- a miniature black hole had appeared between Bart and Ray that absorbed the light from Ray so Bart couldn't see him.

* ''{{ComicStrip/Foxtrot}}'': One strip has Paige intently watching a pot on the range. Peter asks her what she's doing, and she says she's watching the pot to ensure it doesn't boil, so whatever foul concoction their CordonBleugh of a mother put in won't end up as dinner. Peter laughs, then learns there's twice the usual amount, and joins her.
