** "It's My Party" by Lesley Gore (at that time, a 16-year old New Jersey schoolgirl taking voice and piano lessons) was produced and recorded, vocals, orchestra, brass section and all, as a demo recording in a small four-track studio in New York City by a young Quincy Jones over the course of a day and not meant to be released commercially. That changed after Creator/PhilSpector talked to Quincy Jones at a concert both attended of his plans to record the song with the Crystals; Quincy mixed the recording, released acetates to radio stations across the country over the course of that weekend and it reached #1 in a month.

* YaoiGenre: Traditional yaoi stories involved a {{Seme}} and an {{Uke}}, in very fixed roles. Real male-male relationships aren't necessarily like that. The yaoi gnre is aimed at straight women, by straight women, for fetishising queer people, as is a lot of works in both Japan and America depicting an unrealistic, often to the point of offensiveness, portrayal of female-female relationships (or solely intercourse, more common in the case of American fetishising works)

* Defied in the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' graphic novel ''Hush'': Catwoman is shot in the arm by Harley Quinn...and while she survives, in subsequent scenes she is shown to be physically weakened from loss of blood.
* {{Invoked}} in one story from ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'': Irma had been drafted to write the script of a musical based on the first saga, and the dialogue she wrote for a romantic scene was laughed at as too cheesy and unrealistic-except she had copied it from a phone call between Peter Cook and Cornelia ([[HilarityEnsues who was in the room]]), the latter of which ''is the base of one of the characters''.

** Music/{{Queen}} in particular were notorious for this; contrary to popular belief, the "no synths" disclaimer on their early albums wasn't because they had anything against synths even then, but because they were annoyed at May's guitar proficiency and their overdub tricks being mistaken for synth effects.

* 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 assured them that that was how Elton chose to sing it (he was known to experiment with his vocals at the time).

* Some fans of ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' can be [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad extremely picky about racial depictions]] although it's a notoriously inclusive show. Both actors who have played Carlos have him speak unaccented English. Fanfic writers who have him speak Spanish or Portuguese[[note]]assuming he's Brazilian, as he was originally meant to be[[/note]] have been accused of otherizing and LatinLover stereotyping, since if he spoke Spanish he'd have an accent in English. These critics have perhaps watched a little too much ''Series/ILoveLucy'' and may never have been to Southern California, where ''Night Vale'' takes place; Hispanics routinely switch back and forth ''in mid-sentence'' and speak crisp unaccented English as Carlos does.

* FilleFatale: A young girl (or, for that matter, a young boy) acting in a sexually precocious manner ''is'' [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior troubling]], but not for the reason most people think. It's often a sign that somewhere along the line she (or he) was sexually abused.
* FiveStagesOfGrief: Grief follows a set timetable, with very specific stages. In reality, not everyone goes through every stage, nor does grief follow a neat and well-defined timeline. Additionally, grief can come in unpredictable waves or cycles; the grieving person may feel fine one day, and then the next day, they may feel sad or angry again.
* GenderAndSexualityTropes: Men and women don't always fit neatly into socially-expected gender roles/dynamics...nor do they always want to.

* TeensAreShort: The need for an older actor to be believable as a teenager leads to casting actors that are uncommonly short. This leads to many situations where the teenagers are all somewhere around five feet when in real life most teenagers are the same height as their parents, or even taller.
