* Freezer burns.

to:

* Freezer burns.burns occur, obviously, because of cold temperatures but if you're not numb completely they can feel like they burn.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': Touji and Kensuke were standing next to Rei when Asuka mmet the group. When Rei saw the German girl wrapping her arm around Shinji's and dragging him away, the ambient temperature suddenly dropped, and Touji and Kensuke felt a blast of cold hitting them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/PokemonMaster'': Due to their elemental mastery, Fire and Water Pokemon Master's body temperature remains constant, regardless the environment. In a scene Misty wore a sleeveless outfit despite the temperature being freezing-cold because she is a Water Master and coldness does not affect her.

* ''Fanfic/HigherLearning'': Misato has the misfortune of sitting next to Gendo at the school recital. The ambient temperature drops almost to freezing point when Gendo sees Rei smile and hug Miyazaki-sensei after her successful performance; when he gets up to leave, the cold lingers behind him to the point that Misato, not having the nerve to look, is under the impression that he's still sitting there.

* in ''SpyKids 3D,'' they jump into lava, but it's freezing cold
* In ''TheWaterboy'', Bobby gives Vicky Valencourt a bottle of water that is extremely cold at all times, even though it's kept in a room-temperature environment. Supposedly this is because it was blessed by an Eskimo medicine man.
* The machine room door in ''ForbiddenPlanet''.

** (Real rockets do this and it's called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regenerative_cooling_(rocket) regenerative cooling]], but it doesn't exactly keep things cool enough to touch.)

to:

* The ''Literature/PerryRhodan'' universe features "Luurs metal", which naturally maintains a constant temperature a bit above the freezing point of water. (It comes up as a plot point in one issue because thin threads of it are used in Terran bank notes as an anti-counterfeiting measure at that time; naturally, that issue is then all ''about'' somebody having found a way to make counterfeit notes anyway and using those to try to mount an economic attack on the Solar Empire.)

Simply put, an object or person exhibits Thermal Dissonance when its not the temperature it should be. It's true that some objects have a very low thermal conductivity, but these objects don't heat up or cool down no matter how long they spend in a hot or cold environment. They somehow seem able to defy conventional thermodynamics and ''choose'' what temperature they want to be, because of this the object can be a piece of hyper advanced {{Phlebotinum}}, an AncientArtifact or stranger fare. When touched or held it is either much warmer or colder than the ambient temperature would indicate, with no obvious reason for this temperature difference. A sufficiently powerful Thermally Dissonant object may also be able to change the temperature of its surroundings, freezing an active volcano or melting a glacier if dropped in.

* This is played both ways with the Slytherin Locket Horcrux in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows''. It is described as being cold to the touch, yet at one point it burns Harry's chest, leaving him with yet another scar. Justified, as not only is the locket imbued with very powerful Dark magic, it has something of a mind of its own -- and a spiteful, cruel one at that.
