*** 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.

** Even later, when concluding the Bean spinoff series, it's shown that the Buggers ''did'' evacuate multiple queens, though the one Bean finds died before arriving anywhere, leaving only the drone pilots alive. This makes more sense, but it also opens up other plot holes in the later Ender books, turns the Hive Queen into a liar when she's supposedly not really able to lie at all and makes Ender's whole journey to find her a new home rather pointless.

*** Because in the book they look like wolves except for a few small differences, and that just isn't dramatic enough.
*** Notice that the assignment Snape gives in the movie is how to recognize a werewolf, not to notice the difference between one and a regular wolf.

There seems to an attempt at LampshadeHanging when the creature's DNA report comes back - it has the DNA of all its victims and even rat DNA, which [[AlliterativeName Detective Dick Durkin]] mentions as being 'Multiple Restriction Polymorphic DNA strands'. This might indicate that the creature is supposed to be a ShapeShifter of some sort and that it only changes back to its natural form when about to kill. Of course, this still doesn't explain ''anything'' else in the film, like why it kills based on the lunar cycle; why it behaves like a human serial killer; its obsession with [[AwesomeMcCoolName Harley Stone]] and the psychic connection between them; what the creature is or where it came from; why it stopped killing prior to the film; why it bothers to steal a shotgun from the back of Stone's police 4x4 and use it on Stone and Durkin when it is, as established, a nine-foot tall walking nightmare of claws and teeth; why it doesn't bother to fight back when Stone [[spoiler:rips its heart out and finally kills it], and a myriad of other gaping holes in the plot.

* In the beginning of the {{novelization}} of ''Literature/BackToTheFuture'', unlike the movie, Doc says he got the idea for the time machine by having a dream about the [=DeLorean=] many years ago. (This brings up [[VoodooShark a LOT of questions]] regarding what relationship Doc had with John [=DeLorean=], by the way.) However, later on, when Marty meets 1955!Doc, he says he got the idea for the ''flux capacitor,'' not the [=DeLorean=], which admittedly makes much more sense.

* Too many to list in ''VideoGame/The3rdBirthday'' to the point of MindScrew. It just raises more questions than answers by the end of the game.

* In Creator/RodgersAndHammerstein's backstage musical ''Me and Juliet'', some of the theatergoers are humming tunes from the ShowWithinAShow during intermission: "Marriage Type Love", "No Other Love", "It's Me". The problem here is that "It's Me" was only sung backstage, not onstage, so the audience shouldn't have heard it. Hammerstein privately acknowledged this mistake.

The problem here is that "It's Me" was only sung backstage, not onstage, backstage as a song about acting, so the in-universe audience shouldn't have heard it. Hammerstein privately acknowledged this mistake.

** The *entire story* becomes a plot hole when you realize that Tobi could have captured the tailed beasts all by himself, and it would take him no more than a few months to do so.
