* In a feminine-hygiene ad, some blindfolded women try to identify the rhinoceros standing between them. Their guesses are all inanimate objects, based entirely on the shape of its body parts that are seen on screen ("It's a rope", "It's a pillar", etc). None of them notice that it smells like a big freakin' animal, that it's warm to the touch, or that ''it's moving'' slightly.
** A case of Rule of Perception meets CompletelyMissingThePoint, as in the original parable that inspired this scenario (which involves an elephant), the blind investigators ''know'' it's an elephant, and are asked what the animal is ''like'', not what it is.

Fleeing characters could avoid mishap by stepping aside rather than continue rushing forward.

* In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' and ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', NoEndorHolocaust appears to be in play during the battles in Manhattan and Sokovia, respectively. ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' averts that trope with footage from those battles and others showing that, yes, innocent people had died during those battles and the Avengers had not noticed due to dealing with Loki's Dark World army and Ultron.

*** A strange result of this was the case of Ink, a character who thought he had the mutant ability to simulate others' powers by getting an appropriate symbol tattooed on his body (it turned out he was a normal human - it was the tattoo artist who had super powers). One of his tattoo powers was telepathy, which he got from having lightning bolts tattooed on his head, just like the ones used to show Professor X using his powers in old school ComicBook/{{X-Men}} comics. The question this raises: how would someone who'd never read an X-Men comic know to associate telepathy with lightning bolts?
*** Actually Marvel comics do exist in the 616.

Particularly in animated medium, if a character is supposed to be considered ugly then the best way to do so is to lay it on thick.

Maps only need to show what's important to the story, so in order to prevent the audience from wondering what places might lay beyond it, no landmasses extend off the boundaries of the map.

* In ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' (1971), none of the visitors recognize that the chocolate river ''is'' chocolate until Mr. Wonka tells them. At least one asks something along the lines of, "What is in that river?" Clearly, the chocolate ''smells'' no stronger near the chocolate river than anywhere else in the confection-filled room.

* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic\\
Fictional conversations are, on a {{meta}}-level, pre-scripted, so there's no reason they can't be perfectly polished and smoothly flowing unless the plot specifically calls for it.
** HesitationEqualsDishonesty\\
Likewise, when a character pauses for any reason, it's an audio cue that he's second-guessing what he wants (and ''doesn't'' want) to tell the others.
