to.[[labelnote:*]]Think about it really hard. If a Reality Breaking Paradox were to exist, then it would destroy reality. Which would cause it not to exist, and therefore for reality to exist. Or even that if reality were to cease existing, it would cause a paradox in that there has to be a reality in which reality existed (for something to happen to undo everything), and because reality encompasses everything that has been or could ever be, the reality in which reality existed has to be itself. Basically, you are presently in reality, which means that nothing will have or can ever take away this reality. Stop thinking now and take some tylenol.[[/labelnote]]

-> ''"If the Universe came to an end every time there was some uncertainty about what had happened in it, it would never have got beyond the first picosecond. And many of course don't. It's like a human body, you see. A few cuts and bruises here and there don't hurt it. Not even major surgery if it's done properly. Paradoxes are just the scar tissue. Time and space heal themselves up around them and people simply remember a version of events which makes as much sense as they require it to make."''

** There is also the incredibly old demon lord ''Pale Night'' who appears as a female humanoid wrapped in a shroud. The shroud is however not part of herself, but Reality's desperate attempt to hide her true form from the rest of the multiverse. She has the ability to shed the shroud for a short moment and having a very strong WeirdnessCensor is the only thing that prevents everyone from being annihilated by trying [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm to make sense of what they saw.]] That's right, Pale Night's true form is so hidious and evil that ''[[UpToEleven Reality itself]]'' might GoMadFromTheRevelation of seeing it.

His is for B's wish to come true. B's wish is for A's to come true -- which already happened and so the chain closes, to no effect. Because it already happened, there is no 'paradox' being created in only one wish being able to be served, which would have otherwise denied both wishes.[[/note]]

* The ''VideoGame/HenryStickminSeries'' has one of it's many fail endings cause one of these. The Center for Chaos Containment uses a little calculator with a robotic arm as a weapon. It proceeds to divide a number by zero, causing huge chunks of the world to collapse on itself.

Added DiffLines:

* One character makes causing these their overall goal in ''LightNovel/FateStayNight'', but explaining it is a major spoiler. [[spoiler:Archer wants to kill his younger self, Shirou, hoping the resulting stress on the timeline will cause the world to erase them both from continuity in self-defense. He admits this might not work, there's no guarantee this is even his own timeline and the world is a conscious entity that could have another solution, but he considers the opportunity worth taking.]]
