* ''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.

** He is also said to have failed the final exams three times (and the exam at the start of the series is his fourth), but is in the same age group as others from his class (who are presumably taking it for the first time). This would mean he must have advanced through the earlier classes much faster than others (notably [[TheRival Sasuke]] and even [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Neji]]) and yet he is called a failure and a dropout.

** Chapter 599. Pretty much all of it. In databooks written by Kishimoto, the author of Naruto, several ages are listed for characters - for example, Anko is currently 27, Kurenai is currently 31, etc. The databooks also list other relevant ages, such as when several people were promoted to Genin or Chuunin. Kakashi is stated to have become a Chuunin at age six. In chapter 599 we see the Chuunin exams where Kakashi passes, and he's competing alongside people like Anko, Asuma, Kurenai, Ibiki, Hayate, etc. several of whom had yet to even graduate from the academy, let alone qualify for the Chuunin exams.
** In Chapter 688 [[spoiler: Kakashi is able to use Susanoo, and not just that, he was able to use the complete and perfect version of it. To even perform and maintain a Susanoo, let alone the complete and prefect version, you need a ''ton'' of chakra, something which Kakashi doesn't have and quite possibly the most egregious, the Susanoo is an Uchiha blood clan specific technique and Kakashi '''isn't an Uchiha!''']]

** In Chapter 688 [[spoiler: Kakashi When Edo Tensei was canceled Madara shows that he knows how terminate the contract with Edo Tensei. But how he can know this, if he never planned to return through Edo Tensei in the first place. And to make things worse even the original creator of this jutsu Tobirama, '''does not know how to do it'''.
** At that moment when Obito becomes the Jinchuuriki of the Ten Tails, he is unable to use Kamui due to having the Ten Tails sealed inside his body. But later Madara which became the Jinchuuriki of the Ten Tails, without problems can to use Kamui in order to teleport to Obito, without any explanation.
** As stated in series, to use Izanagi you need Senju and Uchiha powers, as shown Danzo and Tobi, but later Black Zetsu shows that Madara survived the battle with Hashirama with help Izanagi. But how he could do this, if he on that moment hadn't implanted Hashirama's cells into his body yet? After all, that's the whole reason he started the fight in the first place.

* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' is full of them:
** Late into the series, it is confirmed that [[spoiler: the Monokuma message from the beginning of the series is a recording]]. This completely fails to explain why Monokuma was clearly able to respond to the charcters.
** Komaeda suddenly returns part-way through the anime, knowing everything about Junko's plan despite being overseas for the entirety of it. How he could possibly know is not even given a handwave.
** The [[spoiler: brainwashing software]] has highly inconsistent effects. [[spoiler: The initial effects shown are that it literally forces the victims to do things despite them still being conscious, only when Class 77-B get brainwashed it's presented as if they're not even aware of their actions (except Komaeda, for no explained reason). Then, when it shows up in the Future Arc, it's presented as a full-on MindRape instead]].
** It is revealed near the end that [[spoiler: the killing game was supposed to push Mitarai into broadcasting the Hope Video]]. ''Nowhere'' is it explained [[spoiler: how Mitarai was supposed to even learn about the killing game, when he wasn't supposed to be a participant and the killing game wasn't being broadcast]].
** At the end of the series, [[spoiler: it is revealed that Kirigiri survived her poisoning with Seiko Kimura's antagonist. According to Komaeda, the antagonist was made during the killing game...only there is absolutely no window of opportunity when Kimura could have made such an antagonist]].

** In "The Fenton Menace", Sam & Tucker can't see Youngblood when he's tormenting Danny even though the aforementioned himself establishes that he's only invisible to adults or kids who act like adults (like Jazz).

* ''Film/{{Back to the Future Part III}}'' has the setup that Marty can't immediately return to the future on arriving in 1885 because the [=DeLorean=]'s gas tank was damaged and there is no way to fuel the engine. No mention is made of the gas in the [=DeLorean=] that was already there in 1885 (which Doc had, at this point, already hidden in the mine shaft for Marty to find in 1955 because the time circuits are damaged): it seems the writers just forgot there was another one present.

* ''Film/{{Back to the Future Part III}}'' has the setup A partial example in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', after establishing that Marty can't immediately return to the future on after arriving in 1885 because the [=DeLorean=]'s gas tank was is damaged and there is no way to fuel the engine. No mention is made of the remaining gas in from the [=DeLorean=] that was already there in 1885 (which Doc had, at this point, already hidden in the mine shaft for Marty to find in 1955 because the time circuits are damaged): it seems damaged). That said, 1955!Doc mentions that he put new gasoline in the tank, and the writers just forgot there was another one present.did acknowledge later in a FAQ that Doc drained the fluids from the [=DeLorean=] before storing it in the mine.[[note]]Any gearhead will tell you that draining an automobile's fluids is the correct thing to do before placing it into long-term storage. Gasoline is ''highly'' corrosive, and had it been left sitting in the time machine's tank, it would have eventually eaten a hole through.[[/note]]

** Burgess got away with murdering Ann Lively by arranging for someone to kill Lively, have the [=PreCrime=] division stop the killer, and then kill Lively himself while disguised as the first killer. This would make his own killing of Lively appear as an echo of the first attempt on her life, so the [=PreCrime=] division would just ignore it... Except the [=PreCrime=] system would still generate a killer ball with his name on it, making it impossible for the vision to be mistaken for an echo.
