Can often be the cause of an EnforcedTrope. Some AcceptableBreaksFromReality are Necessary Weasels to particular genres as well. Contrast with BadWriting, an article listing some real (versus merely perceived) flaws.

** AliensSpeakingEnglish, whenever the plot is not about first contact with them. Sometimes hand-waved with a Universal Translater device, but either way, the protagonists often need to communicate with aliens, and going back and forth with an interpreter is too clumsy to do all the time.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Sure, it would be sensible for the BigBad to personally hunt down TheChosenOne. But then the protagonist would get splattered and there'd be no plot.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything because otherwise you'd have a massive cast fighting for what little spotlight there is. (And in the case of live-action, massively cost-prohibitive.)

* MilitariesAreUseless in a ZombieApocalypse because otherwise it wouldn't be TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Can sometimes be avoided however, if the story takes place early on or in a small area, allowing the military to save the day in the end ([[NoEndorHolocaust long term implications be damned]]); or the zombies are [[OurZombiesAreDifferent more powerful than usual]].
