* FriendlyPlayfulDolphin: The dolphin, much like he human, is known to engage in physical violence for sport, as opposed to merely food or self-defense. Gang rape is common among their pods, too. Furthermore, dolphins are inherently wild animals; it is possible to teach them to be friendly and playful, but there have been many instances in which captive dolphins have actually killed or, at the very least, severely injured humans, including their own trainers.

* AnnoyingArrows: Don't yank that arrow out, unless you like torn organs and muscles, infections, and/or bleeding to death. In fact, try not to get shot by arrows at all.

* HealingHerb: As with AllNaturalSnakeOil, not all herbs will be beneficial, and they all come with side effects, some worse than others. Do your research.

It's done to make a singer not have to try and unlearn what they know about proper singing technique, and to not do any damage to their lungs or vocal cords.

This extends to audiences as well. Most people you see at close proximity in a concert all wear ear protection.

Unfortunately this is more dangerous than most people realize. Even though most real people don't consider fiction a reliable source of information, people don't usually don't remember where they learned stuff from, even just in the broad categories of 'reliable source' and 'unreliable source'.
