* The resolution of ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' is balanced on a person who disintegrated themselves entirely immediately after performing an assassination being photographed several minutes after the assassination took place. With a camera that, depending on how you read the series's timeline, the photographer may not have owned yet.

** In ''VideoGame/MegaManX8'', due to confusing writing, who the ''real'' villain of the game was is very unclear. [[spoiler: Lumine says that Sigma helped his plan all along, and that the entire rebellion was his and the other New-Gen Reploids' doing, which is clearly what TheReveal seems to go for. However, Sigma says that the New-Gen Reploids were his "children", and that Sigma oversaw the Jakob Project which in turn created the New-Gen Reploids including Lumine. That statement, combined with Sigma's DNA inside the New-Gen Reploids copy chips effectively turning them into Reploid sociopaths, seems to imply that they were intentionally designed by Sigma to carry on his rebellion, even if they may "use" Sigma.]]

* In ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'', a throwaway line at the start of Series 2 reveals that [[ChekhovsGun a pound of heroin]] has been stolen from the vice squad tuck shop. Later on, when Jack goes undercover at Macratty's lair, it's revealed he took the pound of heroin to give to Macratty, to gain his trust. Later on, back at the station, Asap points out that for Jack to have taken the heroin violates [[MediumAwareness the laws of continuity]], since it went missing before he was even involved in the storyline; Jack angrily retorts that [[CowboyCop he doesn't follow rules]], not even the rules of continuity... and just to prove his point, his BeardOfSorrow [[FreezeFrameBonus vanishes for the duration of his rant]].

** [=SDR2=] Chapter 0 is pretty much one huge plot hole both in-game and in hindsight. For one thing, Komaeda [[spoiler: has no idea what Kamukura's going to do, when Enoshima says that her followers all knew about the AI plan]]. This can be chalked up to UnreliableExpositor. What ''can't'' be chalked up as such is that [[spoiler: Komaeda has idea who Kamukura is. This despite the fact that Kamukura is heavily implied to be the ''acting leader'' of the organization ''Komaeda is part of,'' and ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' outright shows that they met before.]] Unsurprisingly, this is never once explained in game.

* A similar idea, except exclusively used with "Plothole Generators" in the AntiClicheAndMarySueEliminationSociety. All other gadgets in the Society operate exclusively on AppliedPhlebotinum.

** A [[FanWank fan theory]] is that the first Turokhan was much tougher because it had had a chance to feed unlike the Turokhan horde which was emerging from having been trapped underground for millenia.

** The Atlantis expedition did their best to run the city off several Naquadah generators which were the most powerful available alternative (presumably more so than fusion). That let them get basic systems up and running. Atlantis seems to be just ''that'' power-hungry and [=ZPMs=] just that powerful.

** At the end of the first film, Hagrid reminds Harry that the Dursleys don't know underage magic is forbidden. The second film cuts the letter informing the Dursleys of that fact after Dobby levitates the cake. Yet the Vernon suddenly loses his fear of Harry and barricades him in, despite having no reason to believe Hary wouldn't turn him into a frog or blast the bars off the windows (especially since he leave Harry his wand and trunk).

** In ''LightNovel/DanganRonpaZero'', Kamishiro states that the name [[spoiler: Izuru Kamukura]] is not on school file. Causes problems when it is later stated in the franchise that that is the name ''of the schools founder''. Why that isn't on file is never explained.

* In an early episode of ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' had Emily open a box of Alpha-Bits in the school cafeteria to find it full of "A" pieces (marking it as a message from the BigBad). If she has a preference for that brand of cereal, then it's logical enough that A might asssume she would choose it, but there's no way that A could know which specific box she would choose, nor is there any indication that any other boxes were similarly tampered with. A displays many other such examples of being TheOmniscient and hardly any of them are explained.
