** 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!'']] Unsurprisingly, this is never once explained in game.

** In "My Secret Genies", one of the things Shimmer and Shine magically conjure to convince Leah they're real genies is a treehouse. However, in "Genie Treehouse", they assume Leah means a house made of trees when Leah wishes for a treehouse.

* In the ''TinyToons'' MadeForTVMovie ''How I Spent My Summer Vacation'', Buster and Babs return to Acme Acres via a literal "plot hole", to which Babs remarks [[WhoWritesThisCrap "I was wondering how those hack writers were going to wrap this up."]] Lampshaded again in a travel episode, where a set of luggage is devoured by Dizzy Devil, but reappears later. Babs pronounces it to be "A plot hole big enough to drive a Mack truck through!"

* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness'': In Act III chapter 50, Kokoa has somehow become aware that Akua and Kahlua stole the [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Chrono]] [[TimeTravel Displacement]] spell from their father's [[CollectorOfTheStrange secret archive]] for Kiria to use in his EvilPlan, when that information was never specifically revealed to them; while Tsukune and the others knew that Fairy Tale had acquired the spell, they were taken aback by the fact that it even still existed after allegedly being destroyed and outright questioned ''how'' Kiria acquired it.

* There's an ''enormous'' one in ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' movies that pretty much renders the underlying premise dead in the water. It's stated that the reason The Matrix is keeping humans alive is as what amounts to space heaters. But you could do that far more efficiently by just taking the nutrients you're supplying to the humans to keep them alive, and ''burning them'' instead. Or, even more efficiently, burning whatever feedstock you're using to generate those nutrients. Some argued that the virtual environment generated by the Matrix forces the human brains to produce more bio-electricity than normally, or the Machines have no alternative because the real world is totally destroyed since the war and the permanent nuclear winter which erased all life. But it still doesn't explain how they draw more out-put than the in-put, and in the latter case, how they can keep generations after generations of humans alive, even by recycling the dead to the full. Thermodynamics: it's not just a good idea ... ''it's the law''. There may be some other reason for keeping humans around (as opposed to having lots of little bomb calorimeters, or using, say, bunnies, which would be a lot less likely to successfully Rise Up Against The Machine), like for example as guinea pigs for experiments, but the stated one makes no sense at all.\\
\\
This was actually an ExecutiveMeddling induced - the humans are supposed to be the computer network, but executives felt ViewersAreMorons and would understand battery better. If you ignore the power and believe the computer network, the series does make more sense - but it's still not the in-movie-explanation.
** Actually, why would you think that "ThermoDynamics", as you call it, is accurate? Was that something you read in a book inside the computer matrix? What makes you think that the real world works that way?
** The programs aren't beings of pure logic. Using humans as batteries '''is''' less efficient, but the machines were presumably pretty angry at humans after the events of TheAnimatrix and the irony probably appealed to them. Contrary to Vicky of IRobot, the mad Machine entity at the ending climax shows very human behavior and emotions.

** Another plot hole regards the age at which Claire manifested her healing powers. When Claire reunites with her birth mother, Meredith Gordon, and later, her birth father, Nathan Petrelli, it is revealed Nathan and Meredith believed their 18-month old daughter, Claire, perished in a fire. Claire's grandmother, Angela Petrelli, reveals she has protected Claire from the Company (see above) since Claire's infancy and knew Claire survived but allowed her father to believe his daughter died in the fire. Claire assumes she survived the fire due to her HealingFactor but the problem with this assumption is that other episodes establish Claire's healing ability as manifesting when she was a teenager, not a baby. A graphic novel depicts 18-month old Claire being carried out of the burning building by one of the Company's agents, Noah Bennet, who Angela Petrelli arranges to become Claire's adoptive father. Since this detail is not depicted in the show, most viewers are left in the dark about the age at which Claire manifested her powers.
** In a flashback episode, when she first leaves Primatech, Meredith refers to her daughter by name, 'Claire', who she believed died in a fire at 18 months old. Even if Primatech knew that Meredith had named Claire (in reality, it's not even clear that Primatech knew Meredith was Claire's mother at all), why would they retain it? Calling Claire a different name would have made it much harder for Meredith to find her (or vice versa).
