* Music/KellyRowland's ''Dilemma'' is a pretty iconic song from the '02s, both because of the success it accrued in the radios at the time, and the fact that, in the clip, the message about unrequited love is displayed, between many things, as a unanswered text message.

* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'' isn't immune to a few technical oddities either. When you acquire the Plasma Beam, Samus fires off a test shot and the sound effect used is the same one from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' since it's the same weapon. However, the sound effect used for the weapon in game is a different sound effect. Likewise, Aurora Unit 242 in [=SkyTown=] has his voice using a deep reverb to make it sound booming. When he tells the player to go east to the Federation Landing Site, the reverb is mysteriously gone, but only for that specific statement since the effect returns afterwards.

* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' is a visually stunning game and there's almost no flaws except for one at the Great Tree Hall. There's a platform that is invisible unless you look at it with the X-Ray Visor. However, looking at the platform normally and carefully will reveal that the raindrops splash in midair instead of continuing to fall. This little graphical quirk spoils the surprise of a hidden platform and you can stand on the platform regardless of whether or not you can see it. It only leads to a small room containing a missile expansion.

** The X-Ray Visor also lets you see Samus's right hand through her arm cannon. The developers forgot to rig the skeleton to recoil with the weapon, thus it clips through the cannon whenever you fire it.
* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes'' has U-Mos, who is [[InvulnerableCivilians completely immune to your weapons by using

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRuHk6Drj2U The music video]] for WillSmith's ''Film/MenInBlack'' features a [[ConspicuousCG poorly done]] dancing alien[[note]]based upon "Mikey", the alien at the beginning of the film[[/note]] midway through. The practical alien body parts towards the beginning don't fare much better.
** The music video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RVRCd6J2NA Nod Ya Head]]" (from the second film) features a glaring amount of '''''very''''' obvious CG.

* The makers of the animated film of ''{{Dragonlance}}: Dragons of Autumn Twilight'' made the strange decision to make the dragons and dragonkin CGI in what was otherwise a (poorly-done) cel-animated movie. At ''best'', it looks jarring and ugly.

* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' has one level that takes place in what can be considered the sun. The colors are mostly orange, red, yellow, and white and they are quite bright. On the VirtualConsole version, the colors in the same level appear muted and are not as vibrant.
