* The story of the first owners of [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP-]][[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1958 1958]]. All but too excited to have a bus that can travel in space, they set off to colonize the stars...neglecting the fact that it still goes at the same speed of a regular bus, and their destination was ''light years'' away. They realized it when, after two months of travel with the crew dwindled and nearly starved to death, they realized [[OhCrap they barely made it to the Moon]].
** One of the general themes of [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP]] is pointing out the horrific consequences of characters and plot devices with fantastic abilities, powers, or properties. A good example is [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-871 SCP 871]], self-replicating cakes: every 24-hours, for every such cake either still around or recently eaten by a human, another instance will appear; if a cake is destroyed by any means other than a human eating it, another one will appear immediately. Limitless free cake! Sound great, right? Except that there's no way to ever decrease the number of cakes. If the number of cakes ever increases to an amount where they replicate faster than humanity can eat them, [[ApocalypseHow all life on Earth will quickly be extinguished]].

** As a general rule, if an [=SCP=] has the ability to transform other things/beings, it won't ignore the aspects of the transformation that would ordinarily be solved with a HandWave, leading to a lot of entries that invoke TransformationHorror.

** An organization devoted to containing {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and keeping the public unaware of them will have to do ''horrible'' things to do so. A prominent example: they "acquire" death-row inmates for the dangerous work, and those who survive are generally killed at the end of the month, unless they're needed alive or can't be killed for some reason (often because something [[FateWorseThanDeath worse]] happened).
** A rather literal example is [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-3001 SCP-3001]]. It is a [[VoidBetweenTheWorlds pocket "non-dimension" located between realities]] that a Foundation researcher was trapped in for almost six years after a FreakLabAccident. His body slowly deteriorated while he was [[AndIMustScream unable to die]], and when he was brought back to our reality he was nothing but a pile of blood, gray matter, and rotting flesh.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1911 SCP-1911]] is an unusual entity that takes the form of a self-replicating old woman who wants to "take care of" young men, usually masquerading as said man's grandmother. When pushed to her limits, she will try to force her way into a man's house, usually in multitudes of 30 or more...thing is, this ''fails'' more often than it succeeds, as the entity almost always has the average strength of an ordinary elderly human woman. The one time the instances were able to overpower a man who was fighting back, it was because he had fallen off of a roof and broke his leg.

** Why does Clamperl (a bivalve) evolve into either Huntail or Gorebyss (both fish)? they're actually Shellder the two species kill and hollow out to use as incubators for their eggs.

** Brakket is located in what is basically a college town full of {{Muggle}}s. Muggles who are generally pissed off when things destroy their homes or businesses. A conflict with the [[KnightTemplar Elysium Nuns]] in one of the books is resolved largely when a mob of townsfolk with TorchesAndPitchforks show up and drive them out of town because they're mad at how dangerous things have gotten.

----* In ''Literature/VoidDomain'', a WizardingSchool in the American Northwest is subject to numerous magical disasters, zombie attacks, demon battles, apocalyptic invasions, [[OverlyLongGag magic nuns]], and every time, it's mentioned that parents are pulling their kids out, or keeping them home until the situation is resolved. The school staff come under fire from parents and media, and administrators get fired multiple times. Eventually, the repeated disasters take a toll and [[spoiler: the school is closed and the town shuts down.]]

* A lot of [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-xkHEbewJQenrFnjmTu0o9PujEy4Lhgd Scientficially Accurate]] cartoons (mildly NSFW).
** They point out that if [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Team Rocket]] is so obsessed about rare pokemon, they should just sell their talking cat. They also enter into Deconstruction, when pointing out that a 10-year-old WalkingTheEarth is less the tale of a boy becoming a master and more about a homeless runaway engaging in magical cockfights.
** The real reason the Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles are dangerous to fight isn't because of their ninja skills: it's the fact that they're walking petri dishes of infectious diseases, stemming from living in a sewer, being trained by a rat (a carrier species for Bubonic Plague, among other diseases), and turtles themselves being carriers of Salmonella. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, they wouldn't be able to talk, since turtles don't have vocal cords.]]



* This Pete Holmes sketch has shown ''{{WesternAnimation/Popeye}}'' eating his [[PowerUpFood Spinach]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar9EQBIonu0 only to get stomach problems]] from expired spinach.
* Website/GoAnimate: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmjcS-OgFJ8 This video]] involves WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer trying to use her [[SwiperNoSwiping famous trick]] in order to stop Swiper from killing her, it doesn't work and Swiper still kills her.
