Writers often forget about or ignore this, and assume that the ''creator'' of a thing maintains some sort of existential tie to the thing created. That is, if the creator is destroyed, it is "only natural" that the creation will [[PuffOfLogic pop out of existence]], or, preferably, [[StuffBlowingUp explode]]. Whatever damage or curse the BigBad has done [[WorldHealingWave disappears when it is defeated]], instantly resulting in [[CueTheSun sunlight]], birds and [[HopeSpringsEternal happy little flowers]].

** Largely [[AvertedTrope averted]] in ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'' for Hermetic and other spell casters, with the exception of those who specifically take this condition as a flaw.

* To a certain extent, human vision and memories. Experiments shown that the brain will actively alter what we think we see (and have seen previously) in order to make sense of the world. For instance, if somebody is slowly altering a picture or the letters on a page or simply ducking behind a counter, most people will insist that the changed version is what they saw to begin with and only realize the difference once they see the before and after shots. This has been taken to the extreme, with experiments having completely different people switch places and the test subject never even noticing.

* OlderThanRadio: In Creator/TheBrothersGrimm fairy tale "Snow White", all of Snowdrop's stepmother's attempts to kill her work this way. She laces Snowdrop's dress up tightly and leaves her for dead, but the dwarfs unlace it and Snowdrop is fine again. She gives Snowdrop a poisoned comb, but the dwarfs take it out of Snowdrop's hair and again she's fine. Even the famous poisoned apple is like this: it lodges in Snowdrop's throat, and when the prince dislodges it she wakes up.

** Actually Batu-khan, who led Mongol invasion of Europe, just wanted to influence the election of the new ruler. Anyway, it's just one of the possible explanations of Mongol withdrawal from Eastern Europe.
