* ''Videogame/TheBardsTaleTrilogy'' gives the Sorceror class the ability to summon illusions to fight with the party. These can inflict damage on the enemy, and any damaged inflicted stays inflicted no matter what subsequently happens, but if the monsters disbelieve the illusion it immediately disappears. This doesn't stop the Sorceror immediately summoning up another monster exactly like it - it seems LaserGuidedAmnesia stops enemies immediately realising this new monster is an illusion too.

* Vanishing in a puff of logic is a consuming peril for the witches in ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', who are largely only as real as they can convince other people they are. Witches are therefore continually performing horrendous deeds in order to be recognised, while trying to undercut the reality of their rivals. At one point a witch uses magic to disprove her own existence, which has a result like reality DividingByZero.

** A very charismatic and wise Nameless One can, instead of recruiting Vhailor, either convince him that his PurposeDrivenImmortality is pointless or that he's restricting himself because the number of currently dead criminals outnumber the currently living ones. Successfully convincing him of either is enough to make him (literally) give up the ghost and die.

* In the prequel story to ''Manga/FairyTail'' a.k.a ''Fairy Tail Zero'', one of Mavis's companions is a girl name Zera who she saved a long time ago when they were kids. Time passes, they meet the other future founding members of Fairy Tail and have an adventure. However at the end of it one of them Yuri explains to Mavis that [[spoiler: Zera is just an ImaginaryFriend Mavis conjured up by her powers after the real Zera died from her injuries all those years ago. Once Zera confirms it, she starts to fade away as Mavis was unaware of this until being revealed the truth of such]].

** Even more aggravating are the reverse phenomena: heisenbugs. The kind that are immediately apparent when you are running your code normally, but magically disappear when you try to fix or isolate them, leaving you with [[ParanoiaFuel that nagging feeling that they can come back at any time]], no matter how much work you've done to fix them.

Usually, these bugs are triggered by a reverse of the same phenomena that causes Shroedinbugs: the error only shows up due to some junk data, and the presence of a debugger disturbs the cause of the bug to the point that it no longer exists. Alternately, a bug in one subsystem is only triggered when a bug in another system goes off, and so on, to the point that the result is impossible to replicate.

** Then there's that genie in ''Discworld/{{Sourcery}}''. The characters wish to go someplace. Cue them all sitting inside the genie's bottle for the ride. . . .''while they themselves are carrying it''. The entire setup was banking on the universe not noticing what they were doing, which backfired once one of the characters pointed out the conundrum. Puff of Logic ensues.

** In ''Literature/FeetOfClay'', it's stated that the standard protocol for dealing with bogeymen is to throw a blanket over its head. The reasoning being that since you can convince a bogeyman you're not there by hiding your head under a blanket, the same logic can be applied to the bogeyman itself. Throw a blanket over the bogeyman's head and he'll be convinced that ''he '' isn't there and be stunned by the ensuing existential crisis.

* In a ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketch parodying ''WesternAnimation/BackAtTheBarnyard'', Bessie points out the inaccuracy of Otis, a male cow, having an udder, which he counters with other inaccuracies such as that Abby can't have blonde hair and that cows can't walk on two legs ("Our knees should ''explode'' under this much weight!"). As soon as he says this, all three cows' knees give out and they lie on the ground in pain.
