And no, "[[AcceptableTargets honest politician]]" doesn't count.

* Starburst had been running advertisements with people like this for a while; for example, an albino lifeguard or zombies as "living dead". One of them managed to be ''stunningly'' offensive by having the "contradictory" traits being Korean ancestry and Scottish nationality. It basically amounted to a painful national stereotype going off on a racist tirade against a kid. Strangely, this is one of the most commonly-run of the series of ads.

** There is a glitch pokémon referred to in the community as [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Invisible_shiny_bulbasaur "Invisible Shiny Bulbasaur"]]. Similar to the Religion examples above, how can you know that it's shiny if it's invisible? (the answer is that the space where it ought to be sparkles when it first appears!)

** Mega Altaria is Dragon/Fairy. The two types are considered to be the opposite of each other, with Fairy being super effective against Dragon and immune to it.

** Mega Altaria is Dragon/Fairy. The two types are considered to be the opposite of each other, with Fairy being super effective against Dragon and immune to it. Humorously, this also gives Mega Altaria a double type advantage against other Dragon-types, as Dragon-type moves are ''[[TakesOneToKillOne also]]'' super effective against Dragon.

Added DiffLines:

** The Chemicritters are similar to Fire Kraken in that their Type/Attribute combinations make little sense; Carbon Crab is a Fire Aqua Type and Oxy Ox is a Wind Beast Type, and Hydro Hawk is a Water Winged Beast Type. (While there are a few of those combinations in the game, most have an ice theme; Hydro Hawk is a bird made of fluid.) The higher-level Chemicritters make more sense, however.

** Youmu Konpaku. She is [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human]] and half-ghost (which as a form of [[TheUndead undead]] are themselves oxymoronic), with her ghost half existing as a normally formless white cloud separate from her physical body. How it's possible to be half-human and half-ghost, even in the bizarre world of Gensokyou where you can't let yourself be held back by common sense, is never explained. [[VoodooShark Apparently it's genetic]], as her father Youki Konpaku is the same way. As a kicker, she's also afraid of ghosts.

** Cirno regularly refers to herself as the strongest fairy. While this is technically true, it's still not a very impressive feat, seeing as fairies are garden variety {{Mook}}s that the player mows down by the hundreds, and Cirno herself is an early-game boss with an extremely glaring weak-spot.

* ''ComicBook/TheUltimates2015'' points out that Master Chaos, an AnthropomorphicPersonification of chaos, doesn't make a whole lot of sense if he's part of a balanced system with his counterpart, Lord Order, and is therefore inherently weaker than his brother.
