* PlayedForLaughs in the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fan video ''Cirno's Perfect Math Class'', where [[TheDitz Cirno]] poses a math problem of a bus going across Gensokyo with people getting on and off, with the question how many people are on the bus at the end of the trip. Contrary to expectations, the answer is 0. [[FridgeLogic There are no buses in Gensokyo.]]

*** You're lost in a cursed forest. How do you get out? Simple: Squeeze some honey onto a completely arbitrary spot on the road, and drop your emeralds into the puddle until an elf gets stuck in it.

** In order to get the treasure, you need to have the tomes on you. Which means you need to solve the riddle and hunt down the treasure ''before giving the tomes back to your client'', or it'll be LostForever. Nothing hints at this, and it runs contrary to RPG sidequest logic, which generally rewards you for being nice and returning the NPC's lost items as soon as possible. (and nearly every other job request in this game has pretty much played that straight)

* Which weighs more - a pound of gold or a pound of feathers? [[labelnote:Answer]]The feathers weigh more, being measured in avoirdupois pounds that are somewhat heavier than troy pounds.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Alternative answer]]The gold weighs more, because Archimedes' Force is density times the gravitational constant times volume of object, and the feathers would have a larger volume.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Creatively-worded answer]]You could interpret it as "How much of each material could you buy with the equivalent value of a pound sterling?", in which case the answer would almost certainly be the feathers.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Engineer's answer]] Either the two weigh the same, or the initial statement is dangerously flawed. The premise states the existence of two units of differing materials, each weighing one unit. This unit has been identified as a pound, and ''is'', by the information stated, identical for both. Using a single term to refer to two non-equivalent units would represent a failure to document critical information. Replace feathers and gold with safe structural loads, and this trick question becomes [[MatterOfLifeAndDeath grounds for serious criminal charges]] in many nations.[[/labelnote]]
** Which weighs more; an ounce of feathers or an ounce of gold?[[labelnote:Answer]]The gold weighs more by about 2.75 g, since Troy ounces are 12 to a Troy pound instead of Avoirdupois' 16 to a pound.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Alternative Alternative Answer]]The feathers weigh more, because you also have to deal with the weight of what you did to all of those birds.[[/labelnote]]

* In ''VideoGame/FateExtellaTheUmbralStar'', unlocking [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Artoria Pendragon]] as a playable character is a doozy to say the least. The first thing you do is go into your system settings and set your clock between 3:00 and 4:00 pm if you have version 1.00 of the game. This is only for patch 1.00 of the game (if you have patch 1.01 then you can skip this part). Next up you'll need to choose one of the main levels with a "Mystery" side mission on any difficulty. Then, you have to complete the Regime Matrix but '''don't''' defeat the boss in the stage. From there, you'll need to go to one of the following locations: Sector D in the Jeanne d'Arc stage of Nero's arc; Sector J in the Nameless stage of Tamamo's arc; Sector E in the Cu Chulainn stage of Altera's arc; or Sector H in the Tamamo stage of the Special arc. After completing the Regime Matrix and have gone to one of those sectors, begin to kill the enemies and make them drop health power-ups. Consume 5 health power-ups[[note]]Being low on health (when the health bar starts flashing red) makes enemies drop more health power-ups.[[/note]] in that sector after completing the Regime Matrix. After completing those steps you'll be informed that Artoria, King of Knights, will challenge you to a fight. Once you defeat Artoria (force her to retreat) you'll need to defeat the boss Servant and then you'll unlock her as a playable character.

* Franchise/AceAttorney will often give you a testimony where the contradiction is easy to spot. Sometimes, actually proving this is harder than it should be because there are multiple parts of the testimony or multiple pieces of evidence that can be used. The game will only ever except the right piece of evidence presented at the right testimony.

*** Gets played for laughs in [[VideoGame/KingsQuest2015 the 2015 reboot]]. At a certain point, Graham gets stuck in quicksand and the apparent solution is [[spoiler:to grab a nearby bucket, umbrella and a wheel to build a sort of impromptu watermill and then use a nearby skeleton to hold it]]. Graham looks proudly for a few moments at his contraption, and then [[spoiler:Vee throws him a vine which allows her to pull him out, throwing in a comment that she's amazed you really thought something like that would actually work.]]

***Later, in the epilogue, Gwendolyn references the trope directly when the player attempts to use an item on an object it's not meant to be used on.
--> '''Gwendolyn''': Moon, meet logic.

* ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' has a puzzle where nine monitors display words and you have to rearrange them. Turns out there are words you need to get rid of because otherwise the sentence will not make sense. What does the game expect you to do? Shut down the monitors with the unneeded words at the circuit breaker. Granted, the game tells you these words should be erased, but why would you associate shutting down monitors (a physical action) with moving them around virtually (because you're not ripping them off the wall)?
