* Producer Gus Dudgeon was often asked by EltonJohn fans if Dudgeon sped up the tape when recording Elton's vocals on the title track to ''Goodbye Yellow Brick Road'', as it has a very nasal, high-pitched quality to it. Dudgeon assumed them that that was how Elton chose to sing it (he was known to experiment with his vocals at the time).

* AllFlyersAreBirds: Birds are the only avian ones, even though there's also bats, for example. Thus creatures that fly must be inherently bird-like.

* LeadTheTargetLeadTheTarget: Sufficient distances require a weapon using bullets/shells to shoot "in front" of the target to make their trajectories intersect and thus hit. Fiction often ignores that or, on the other extreme, wildly exagerates it.



* PoliticallyCorrectHistory

to:

* PoliticallyCorrectHistoryPoliticallyCorrectHistory: Changing or removing uncomfortable facts from history in a work that is supposed to be historically accurate. Itself often used as a criticism towards regimes with a {{Retcon}}-happy attitude.



* StockObjectColors

to:

* StockObjectColorsStockObjectColors: An object must have a certain colour because the audience expects it so, else there must be something wrong with it.



* UnrealisticBlackHole

to:

* UnrealisticBlackHoleUnrealisticBlackHole: Portraying Black Holes as anything other than just a giant gravity field that will trap anything that passes its event horizon. The typical portrayal is more akin to a vacuum cleaner.
