*Discussed by the four in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. Paul mentions that the wizard Shaamforouz (whom they have grown to distrust) said that the Black Tower would destroy the amulet of mask-breaking if it was really that powerful. Ringo dismisses that by pointing out that it's useful to other people besides him, so why would they destroy something that useful just because there's a vague chance the good guys might get it? He also points out, with devastating logic, that the Amber Staff is a lot more dangerous for the Black Tower to let exist, because it's the centerpiece of the Nine-part Key, so why haven't they just destroyed it, or put it on a moon or something, which would instantly make it impossible for anyone to conquer them? But everyone knows it exists, so they must be using it for something.

* ''JessicaJones'' has a ''very'' cruel subversion. The villain of the first season, Kilgrave, can force anyone to do his will except Jessica who is rendered immune after he controls her in a traumatizing event. This means Jessica could simply kill him rather easily at any point in the series putting an end to his powers. The reason she doesn't is his control forced a college student abducted by him to murder her parents, and Jessica is quite intent on proving her innocence which she believes can't be done with Kilgrave dead, despite the body count he racks up killing others throughout the series. In the end [[spoiler: the student ends up killing herself in a bit of a HeroicSacrifice specifically so that Jessica no longer has any reason not to kill Kilgrave after seeing all the suffering he causes.]]

* El Chavo is like the Gilligan of Latin America[[note]] well except for the original Gilligan that was very popular in Latin America[[/note]]. Most of the problems caused in almost every episode of ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'' could be avoided if the eponymous Chavo didn't screw something up with Don Ramon and Señor Barriga as the most common victims of Chavo’s thoughtlessness. Worst thing is that Chavo is allowed to live free in Vecindad just because of Señor Barriga’s kindness.

* Also, the kids from the Lucky Charms commercials; why don't they just buy their own, instead of chasing Lucky for them all the time? This is DoubleSubverted by one Trix commercial. The Trix Rabbit just buys his own cereal. [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin The kids]] [[RefugeInAudacity steal it from him.]]

** In one Elrond's flashback of Isuldur being corrupted by the Ring in ''The Fellowship of the Ring'', after Elrond tells Isuldur to destroy it, Isuldur declines, due to being corrupted by the Ring. Because Elrond was ''right there'' as Isuldur was walking away, he could've just stopped him from leaving with the Ring, and then tossed it and avoided the plot altogether, rather than doing absolutely nothing and letting Isildur walk off with the ring.

** It's hardly suggested that Frankie would be a little less stressed out if Mike would offer to take up some of her duties or if she would call him out for just staying out of the way.

** Good thing the Decepticons never thought of getting rid of [[TheStarscream Starscream]]. He's the only reason the Autobots kept surviving, or even [[http://www.cracked.com/article_16954_5-reasons-megatron-should-have-fired-starscream-years-ago.html woke up in the first place]]. One time he even saved the cornered Autobots just for the sake of ruining Megatron's plans. Right in front of him, complete with a [[{{Pun}} smug one-liner]]. However, one could argue Starscream had the right idea. If they just blew up the Ark (or at least slagged the Autobots in their stasis lock), they could have conquered Earth without Autobot interference. In fact, he wanted to blow them up before they even crashed, but Megatron insisted on following them instead, giving the Autobots a chance to mount a defense.\

*** In 2016, unused audio from the first season was released, and in the audio for "More Than Meets the Eye, Part 1", Megatron explains that he won't destroy the Ark because he wants to follow them to their destination so he can find energy, as well.
