** Iruka allegedly became the class clown after his parents died due to how lonely he was. Problem is, Iruka was 14 when he died and had graduated when he was 10, thus when his parents died he'd already been a genin for ''four years''.

** The pokedex itself is generally taken with a HEAVY grain of salt by most fans when it comes to size/weight of Pokemon. However, given that Wailord's designation is the "Float Whale" this one [[JustifiedTrope might have been intentional.]]

* ''Film/{{Cube}}'': Leaven, a mathematician, spends more than half a second to determine if 645 and 372 are prime numbers. ''Any'' number ending in 2 or 5 is not prime (except for 2 and 5 themselves). Even if they didn't, it is not an "astronomical" calculation to factor a number less than 1000. You don't have to be a savant to do this in your head. (hint: you'll only need to check if it can be equally divided by prime numbers up to 31).

* This was mostly averted in the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' films. Every time a date is mentioned in the trilogy, the day of the week paired with it is ''always'' accurate. For example, November 12, 1955 really was a Saturday. The characters' ages also add up correctly, though the filmmakers made the math as easy as possible. ''Everyone'' in Marty's parents' generation (aside from Biff, who was one year older than George and Lorraine) was seventeen in 1955, forty-seven in 1985 and seventy-seven in 2015. And everyone in Marty's generation is seventeen in 1985 and forty-seven in 2015. However, according to the DVD features, ''Series/TheHoneymooners'' episode that Lorraine's family watched did not air on November 5, 1955. However, all the sports scores listed on specific dates in ''[[Film/BackToTheFuturePartII Part II]]'' were the actual scores on those dates.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has numerous inconsistencies with character ages compared to state time periods, mostly because [[AllThereInTheManual these ages are only in the databooks]], so the author either doesn't remember them or [[SchrodingersCanon doesn't care about later contradicting them]]:

* The eponymous Franchise/{{Dragon Ball}}s can't be used for one year after they grant a wish. However, only 8 months pass in between the first use in the series and the second one.
** There's also the fact that if your family name is "Son", your age is going to get very confusing: \

** Official sources place Howard as being born in 1917, and Tony in 1970 - thus making Howard 53 when his son was born, and Tony being 41 (going on 42) in May 2012 when the Avengers first... ahem, assembled,



** Possibly justified, given that Wailord's design is closer to that of an air-filled blimp than anything, and its designation is the Float Whale Pokemon.

** In the same book, a more subtle error is in the missiles which "accelerated at four thousand gravities." That means they fly a distance of 20km in the first second. They are locked-on manually, and there are six of them in the air at the same time. Assuming launch intervals of only two two three seconds ("Target Two up!" - "Launch Two!" - "Two away!" is spoken), that's at least ten seconds between the first missile and the sixth. And a distance of 2000km assuming constant acceleration. Even more importantly, an impact velocity of 400km/s, which would make them effective kinetic weapons - although Weber writes that they are not. (Certainly not at peak efficiency, but equally certainly effective).
