* The 2016 Handball European Championships. Germany was basically a bunch of nobodies from a country that just a few years prior had to be given a "wild card" to even make it to the world cup. They squeaked by in the first round (after a loss in the first round to Spain) and only made it to the semifinal with a lot of luck and dedication. The semifinal is another squeaker which gets them to the final... Against Spain... Cue a 24:17 CurbStompBattle. It was not even as close as the score makes it sound.

* There's this Quarterback. Let's call him P.M. He is by all measurable (and some unmeasurable) categories the best of his era. However, any team he plays for suffers from chronic EveryYearTheyFizzleOut - and the blame is often (justly or unjistly) put on him. Cue his last season (for all we know) where he plays horribly but for the first time in ''ages'' is surrounded by a good or even above average defense and special teams. Of course he makes it to the Super Bowl (beating his long time rival with a reputation of being "clutch" in a 20:18 squeaker that went down to the wire to get there) against the undisputed MVP and probably one of the best young QBs of his era. Of course "P.M." wins his game. Of course this all just too cheesy to be true. Only that it is the story of Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

* In the 2016 NBA season, Stephen Curry's shotting was so unrealistically good that it was not replicable in the video game NBA2k16, leading the developers [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/bensin/2016/02/22/how-steph-curry-broke-the-way-basketball-video-games-are-being-built/2/#57fdcfa0125d to remark that they have to change the shooting algorithm they had been developing for the past decade]] just to reflect Curry's shooting ability.

* People usually confuse royalty, castles, knights, and carriages for elements of fantasy due to not having been informed about what the 1400's was like, assuming it was just like today.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Klaus makes a joke about [[BlackVikings black Germans as though they're an entirely fictitious thing]]. In real life, there have been black people in Germany for centuries. Like many other European countries, Germany's history of Colonialism means that there are many descendants of slaves and African immigrants still living there.

In more modern days African American soldiers have had children with Germans as have "guest workers" in both east and west and immigrants from "socialist brother countries" to the GDR. Any major German city will have quite a number of black Germans, if less than in the US
