Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* {{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''.

Added DiffLines:

* YaoiGenre: Traditional yaoi stories involved a {{Seme}} and an {{Uke}}, in very fixed roles. Real male-male relationships aren't necessarily like that.

Added DiffLines:

* Heihei eating rocks in ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' is treated as a sign that he's TooDumbToLive and is a running gag. Actually, chickens ''do'' eat rocks in real life since they need them for digestion. That said, however, they typically don't try to eat rocks that are bigger than their heads (like Heihei does), as that really ''would'' be TooDumbToLive. (Then again, this ''is'' Heihei...)

* On ''TheAgonyBooth'' Solkir notes in the ''Gladiatrix'' review that the villain was going to be described as horribly written...if the review hadn't aired shortly after the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Isla_Vista_killings Isla Vista killings]] and their fallout, meaning that it's recently been demonstrated that actually there are quite a few people who have the villain's attitude (why don't women like me what's wrong with them how dare they I'll kill them!) almost exactly, making him ''Series/BirdsOfPrey'''s most believable villain.

** Besides, to get that beautiful head that consumers have come to expect, many a brewer have resorted to additives (for example E405, propylene glycol alginate).

** Besides, to get that beautiful head that consumers have come to expect, many a brewer have resorted to additives (for example E405, propylene glycol alginate). To get that head without those additives you have to pour the beer badly (straight into the glass, rather than down the side) or use a special foaming nozzle (once common in northern England).

* LeadTheTarget: 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.

Added DiffLines:

* NoDeadBodyPoops: In reality, only about 10% of mammalian deaths involve the body voiding its bladder or bowels upon death. In fiction, it either ''always'' happens or ''never'' happens.
