** AliensSpeakingEnglish, whenever the plot is not about first contact with them. Sometimes hand-waved with a [[TranslatorMicrobes Universal Translator 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.

* Acting TooDumbToLive (even for a single thing, for one brief moment) on horror stories. After all, even if DeathByGenreSavvyness or [[DeathByPragmatism Pragmatism]] exists, many horror films depend on the heroes-slash-victims doing that one stupid thing that gets the ball rolling like [[DontGoIntoTheWoods going camping into the deep dark woods]] or visiting that friend on LovecraftCountry or [[CuriosityKilledTheCast getting curious about that weird thing they just noticed]].
