* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' does this to [[spoiler: Godot]]. The sheer awesomeness of his logic made [[spoiler: his visor explode]].

* An unusual variant occurs in ''Podcast/TheAdventureZoneBalance'' when the protagonists face a murderous "quiz robot" named Hodge-Podge, whom they have to "stump" in order to defeat. The solution isn't to trick Hodge-Podge with a paradox, because he's too smart for that to work, but instead to ask him a question which cannot be answered because the answer was eaten by the Voidfish. Hodge-Podge stutters, sparks and then blows up as he tries to figure out the unknowable answer.

* On ThisVeryWiki, some tropes seem to contradict each other, such as for example ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet and MostFanficWritersAreGirls, ItAlwaysRainsAtFunerals and ItsAlwaysSunnyAtFunerals, or TrailersAlwaysSpoil and NeverTrustATrailer. They do not form paradoxes, however, since tropes are not logical truths. Firstly, tropes generally hold for one or more works (here, "works" is meant in the widest sense possible, including memes and general attitudes: the first pair above are about memes) and it is understood that they do not necessarily hold anywhere else (which is why we have example lists): the trope [=XIsY=] is shorthand for "it can be non-trivially observed that in some works, X is Y". Next, even when looking into those works where the trope appears, it may reflect anything from fictional "fact" (X is indeed Y) to tendency, possibly in a twist (X tends to be Y, but ''whoops'') to belief (X is held to be Y, at least by one character). Sometimes we make an example of a work because it ''[[AvertedTrope averts]]'' X is Y, and that's still not paradoxical. In the RealLife sections of tropes, or in the case of a trope that deals with the real world (as the last pair in the list above does) contradictions could suggest a possible paradox, but most such can be explained by (acceptable) vagueness and bias.

*** However, if a fetus is in a country with no documentation allowing it to be there nor citizenship in that country, all fetuses are illegal immigrants and thus should, according to Republican politics, be deported.

* A painting by the Belgian René Magritte [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b9/MagrittePipe.jpg "La trahison des images,"]] which says "[[TheTreacheryOfImages This is not a pipe]]" underneath in French. It's a ''picture'' of a pipe. Actually, it's just paint on canvas that we recognise as a pipe. Well, usually it's ink on paper arranged to resemble the paint on a canvas that we recognize as a pipe. Unless you're looking at it now, in which case it's RGB pixels on a screen that look like the ink etc. etc.

Unless you're looking at it now, in which case it's RGB pixels on a screen that look like the ink etc. etc. In fact, right now it's even worse. You are reading a set of pixels made to represent a series of squiggly lines that your brain interprets in such a way that you "see" the painting within your mind, which is comprised of nothing at all, and the image itself is created by mere electrical signals pulsing through organic matter that is made up of many cells, none of which have the individual ability to do this, which are all made from inorganic matter, namely atoms. And we don't even understand how the brain does pretty much any of this.
