* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' features Forgotten Beasts, creatures created by primordial chaos. In-game, they're created by randomly mixing any animals, materials, limbs, and strange attacks. Sometimes this can result in paradoxial creatures, the most famous being the "Six-Legged quadruped[[note]]This means it has six legs but a quadruped's body structure[[/note]]."

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Elixirs are cooked items that have an effect (fireproofing, speed-boost, etc) but no healing properties like food items, made from combining lizards and/or insects with monster parts. 'Hearty' is a modifier that provides full healing and extra hearts. A Hearty Elixir is surprisingly easy to come by.

* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': Near the end of the Future Trunks Saga, we're met with [[spoiler:Fusion Zamasu]], who is this trope on two levels:
** He's essentially an immortal who is partially mortal, as [[spoiler:one of his components, [[EvilTwin Goku Black]], was mortal whereas the other, Future Zamasu, possessed CompleteImmortality. It's for this reason that his immortality winds up being compromised, and makes him capable of being damaged]].
** He's a fusion, that much is true. But the weird thing is that he's basically the fusion of the ''exact same being''; [[spoiler:Goku Black is a version of Zamasu who stole Goku's body using the Super Dragon Balls.]]

** Similarly, in the Yoruba mythology, the supreme god is composed of three separate entities (Olodumare, Olorun and Olofi) who despite having separate roles are considered the same being. Further adding to the confusion is that unlike Jesus, it/they aren't given any sort of personification, as beyond their roles and names the three supreme being aspects are considered "unknowable" and are properly referred to as an "it" with no gender pronouns, as it is considered the "all-encompassing" aspect of existence.

* Creator/FrancisEDec, as with any dyed-in-the-wool kook, had a number of these in his insane worldview. He believed that the Nazis and the Jews were one and the same (and that the six million Jews that the Nazis murdered during the war were actually Polish people), and believed in Catholic-Communist (the communists being well known for being atheistic) infrared crusader priests with poison swords.

** This problem is perhaps most well known with the "gray" wolf, which can be pure black or pure white without any traces of gray. Also a problem with the "red" fox, which can be other colors such as black and sliver.

* The word "sophomoric", derived from sophomore, may be considered an oxymoron in Greek; it derives from the Greek words "sophos", wise, and "moros", stupid, (from which we get the word moron). A sophomoric person may be defined as [[KnowNothingKnowItAll conceited and overconfindent of knowledge, but poorly informed and immature.]] [[note]] The concept may be described by Film/TheThreeStooges, whenever one of them says "Oh, a wise guy, huh?" in response to another's smart-alecky attempt at "wisecracking" a pun.[[/note]]
