* As would be expected from a series with such a title, ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' has these crop up every once in a while.
** In [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventurePhantomBlood part one]], [[BigBad Dio]] has a bunch of pet dogs with human heads. One makes a lewd remark about [[NoNameGiven Poco's sister]] and Dio crushes it under his foot for being rude. No explanation is ever given of where the dog-men came from or why Dio had them, and [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment the other dog-men never appear or are mentioned again.]]
** The series is semi-famous for having at least one major Stand in each Part that demonstrates a power in its first appearance [[note]]that seems to have no connection to the power it's eventually given[[/note]] and then never again. [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Part Three]] has Noriaki Kakyoin cut Jotaro's leg at a distance by painting a red streak across the latter's knee in a painting. Kakyoin's Stand Hierophant Green's power is the ability to turn into tentacles.
** In [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable part four]], Rohan Kishibe's first appearance sees him drawing and shading complete pages of his manga in seconds. It's definitely a RequiredSecondaryPower since his Stand's main effect[[note]]Turning someone into a book and allowing him to read their mind and erase memories or implant instructions[[/note]] is activated only when someone sees one of his unpublished drawings[[note]]Later his stand is shown to have a physical form which can turn people into books on its own, but he summons it by drawing it in midair so it technically fulfills the same condition[[/note]], but according to WordOfGod, Rohan's superhuman drawing skills aren't part of his Stand. Where they ''did'' come from is unexplained, though unlike the other examples they are referenced regularly throughout Part Four and even get a CallBack in part six.
** In [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo part five]], when Giorno first meets mob boss [[FatBastard Polpo]], the latter idly chews off two of his own fingers, only for them to reappear seconds later. His stand Music/BlackSabbath, however, turns out to have the ability to move instantly through shadows. The actual reason behind his finger-eating and subsequent regeneration is never explained.
** The first appearance of [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStoneOcean part six]]'s main villain Enrico Pucci sees him apparently using his Stand to put Jotaro and Jolyne into a trance while they're slowly dissolved by a thick white fluid. The problem: Pucci's stand {{Music/Whitesnake}}'s power is to extract the memories and Stands of others and store them in the form of [=CDs=]. Nowhere is any mention made of trance-making or white acid.

* In episode 19 of the 2017 series of ''Manga/MagicalCircleGuruGuru'', Raid, in his dragon form, after capturing Kukuri, is looking at a photo book of [[{{Gonk}} Kaya]] which is filled with him doing [[FanDisservice "sexy"]] poses. This freaked Raid so much that it turned him back to his humanoid form.

*Many of the things that happen in WebVideo/{{Stampylongnose}}'s Quest and Den series are this trope. especially Quest's morning routine, which involves Stampy and his friend iballisticsquid shooting arrows at each other form the top of giant statue-houses of themselves, flushing themselves down a giant toilet, then kissing a snow-golem, then pretending to sell ice cream to each other. This routine has been known to take up an entire twenty-minute episode.

* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/this-robot-is-really-in-disguise/36327 This story]] on "Not Always Learning," a spinoff of Website/NotAlwaysRight, has a student quoting this trope almost word for word when their teacher discovers a photo on said student's camera of a Franchise/{{Transformers}} toy in a Franchise/{{Barbie}} dress hugging a beer bottle.

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'' contains copious quantities of this. Perhaps the most famous example is anything and everything to do with the [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/144.html Glumdroodler]], [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere including the Glumdroodler itself]].

* In ''Film/ErnestGoesToJail'', whenever Ernest gets an electric shock he temporarily becomes a living magnet. When he gets electrocuted on the Electric Chair he temporarily gains lightning powers. Now say that out loud. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Ernest P. Worrel. Gains superpowers. From being executed]]. The only part of that to actually make sense ([[ItMakesSenseInContext in context]]) is why he went to prison and got the chair in the first place.

** At least until the season 3 episode "Deep Dive," which implies [[spoiler: the unicorns are from the dimension that ''all magic in the multiverse'' flows from, having one in the wand is what powers it]], possibly turning this into a case of {{Foreshadowing}}. It's not any less ''weird'', but neither is anything else in the show.

* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'': The heroine brings something to her teacher during the summer holidays and he asks if she'll stay to help him with some work. The heroine can choose to either stay and help him; go to the library... or say that she has to claim her spoils of war and head to the distant land of mascedonia, to obtain her reward from the king. There is just ''no'' explaining of that line.
