* In a ''OnePunchMan'' side-chapter, Child Emperor builds a power measuring machine. When scanning [[WorldsStrongestMan Saitama]], it reads "Unmeasurable", which ironically is the same result it gives for a normal human (and also for King).

* The Y2K probelm was a strange example. The scale on the years field was only 2 digits, allowing dates from 1900 to 1999. This was done to save sending an extra digit which at the time would have been very expensive. Fortunately programmers had a lot of time to redesign their systems but if uncorrected millions of computers would have had the time be "off the scale".

* In the first ''SakuraWars'' OVA the developers of the spirit armor are having trouble finding someone who is able to pilot it. After their latest military pilot nearly kills himself trying to operate the mech, the scientists comment that they need to find someone who can move the gauge on the [[BuffySpeak spirit-power-measuring-thingy]]. They idly flip it on in the presence of the granddaughter of the chief scientist (and daughter of the owner of the company), and the gauge, of course, promptly overloads and breaks.

* The very first flight of the Ariane 5 launcher resulted in a big ball of fire, because the reading coming from a speedometer went off the chart. More precisely, the reading was to be converted from a 64-bit floating point value to 16-bit signed integer value, but was too large for the latter format. It was arguably the most expensive bug in history.

* NBA superstar Steph Curry had such an absurdly successful real life season in 2015-16 that the developers of the game ''NBA2K 16'' admitted that they couldn't properly replicate his shooting accuracy without ''breaking the game engine''.

** According to the ship's name/acronym ''[=ZARYa=]'' (means "dawn"), the "R" standads for "relativistic", meaning the ship is actually designed to go to a significant percentage of the speed of light (at least 10%). In order to experience the TimeDilation effects the teens did, they would have had to travel much faster (at least 99%).

The star in question is a real one; over 200 light (at least 10%). In order to experience years away, but with the TimeDilation effects TimeDilation, the teens did, were expected to only age about 20 years (requiring 90%+ lightspeed). Instead, they would have had to travel much faster (at least 99%).got into some NegativeSpaceWedgie, making it 20+ years on Earth, a couple minutes for them, and definitely FTL.

* The Torifune Military Academy in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' evaluates its students' potential in various categories during the nomination and enrollment periods; even afterwards, the student council can reference them to help with their education or (in the case of troublemakers) containment. In the wake of [[FantasticRacism an incident between a trio of]] [[UpperClassTwit "in-name-only" nobles]] and [[LittleBitBeastly Makoto]], Jin pulls up hers and points out to Tsubaki just how out of their league the nobles stood to be.
-->"A beastkin, huh? Her ars magus aptitude is average, but her physical tests are off the charts. She would have no trouble dealing with a group of two or three people."
