** The crew finds out that Kyle Pratt's daughter supposedly died with her father. No one on the crew thought to point out the obvious: where is the other casket? If she was just acting out of grief and delusion, there should be two caskets in the plane, not just the one carrying her dead husband. Good thing Pratt's not an {{idiot| ball}}. There is also a rare case of LampshadeHanging making everything worse: Kyle does ask Carson where the other casket is and he claims that he doesn't care after the trouble she's caused everyone on board. While it's later revealed that he is the villain, this still only calls attention to the fact that Captain Rich and the other flight attendants don't care either. See: VoodooShark.

There are also quite a few others. But the most amusing one has to be when Carson is lying to the captain about Kyle being the hijacker. He tells her that she outright refuses to negotiate (as to not blow his cover) and to go ahead and have the airline wire the $50 million "she" demanded without "her knowing". Next scene shows him getting a call from the captain saying it's been wired. Yeah, That's very much how real life does not work. The airline has no idea who she is and Carson gives no evidence whatsoever that's she's a hijacker. Yeah, We'll all believe she's a hijacker because an air marshal, the person one should trust the most on an airplane, says so. At the very least, the airline would want a background identity to consider wiring the money.

*** Another Crouch Jr. related plot hole is that there is no mention of him getting the Dementor's kiss. The movie states he will be sent to Azkaban. In later movies, Voldemort frees all the Death Eaters but Crouch Jr. never appears alongside them despite playing major part in Voldemort's return. He likely should be CoDragons with Bellatrix Lestrange.

**It was revealed late in Season 4 that Anders was a musician in his former/original life on the first Earth and that he wrote it. Why the song is identical to one from our modern era is not explained however.

* In ''TomAndJerry and the Wizard of Oz'', the Wicked Witch of the West somehow knows Tom and Jerry's names without being told. Then again, she [[AWizardDidIt is a]] [[CaptainObvious witch]].

* In ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestIIVohaulsRevenge'', Roger Wilco orders a whistle via mail required to solve a later puzzle. In both ''VideoGame/{{Space Quest III|The Pirates of Pestulon}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Space Quest V|The Next Mutation}}'', the owners of the mail-order company dispatch Terminator-like androids to collect the [[LoanShark huge debt incurred from the interest]] or kill him (but mostly [[EverythingTryingToKillYou kill him]]). What's strange about this is that the whistle is advertised as being free (''and'' that ordering it in the first place is optional!).

* There is lot of plot holes you can ignore with a lot of good will in the StarWars saga (notably the implications of the family relationships), but the ellipsis between Episode III and Episode IV is probably the one too big to swallow. Basically, it is supposed that Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the two most powerful Jedi of the Galaxy, just sat there waiting NINETEEN years for the sequel, despite the ending of Episode III shows the presages of the Rebellion they could have joined immediately (without counting all the Jedi who survived unofficially). They do not even have the lame excuse to focus on training their only hopes, the offspring of Anakin Skywalker, since they eventually DID NOT, and the films hint no explanations for that. The Expanded Universe tried to fill the continuity, but from the point of view of the saga, it looks like the galactic history was stalled for two decades.

* ''Film/MinorityReport'': Anderton's wife gains entry into the jailhouse using her husband's eyeball - but he's already locked up inside, so his eye would not still have access to enter as it pleased. Any place anywhere that would have any sort of security system requiring anything from a simple passcode to a card key to a retinal scan, would immediately delete the user in such instances from all rights. And would also certainly report on any attempted use of such (retinal scan, pass code, whatever). The first time when Anderton does this, you can say there was not enough time to block his access, but when he is a convicted (future) murderer and has entered the labaratory already? Never.

* In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'', Harry and Hermione take seats in the back row of the Quidditch stadium. A moment later Hagrid approaches them coming through the rows behind them, because how?
** In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows The Deathly Hallows]]'' Harrow gets a look at Snape's memories and discovers he's a good guy all along. He's been taking instructions from the magnifcent bastard postmortem using Dumbledore's portrait in the Headmaster's office. Except one of these pieces of information is how to safely get Harry out of his house at the start of the book without regarding suspicion. How, before the ministry falls and becoming headmaster, did Snape get into the headmaster's office to have this conversation? Hogwarts is extremely well protected and Snape is a wanted man.
*** Justified as the people in the portraits are shown to leave their frames and travel into others at will. Dumbledore even used a previous Head Master to deliver a message to a far away location.

* ''Literature/TheLegendOfRahAndTheMuggles'' is the absolute king of plot holes ''in all of literature'', period. The most blatant examples being fantasy elements in a supposedly realistic world, [[WritersCannotDoMath a character that ages only ten years in the span of twenty-two years]], characters changing sizes throughout the story, elaborated flower ceremonies in a land that never had sunlight in the first place, and sunlight somehow being blocked by [[TechnicolorSciente a purple cloud of nuclear fallout]] that somehow lets the moonlight shine through.
