** Another Pokémon, Toucannon, to be precise, has it's speed decrease drastically once it evolves from Trumbeak. However, in real life, though, a Toucan's beak doesn't impede it's speed in flight, making this otherwise perfect example of [[ShownTheirWork showing how far their accuracy can get...]] [[CriticalResearchFailure a minor flop in the end.]]

* Many, many ''VideoGame/{{Payday2}}'' players have endlessly mocked the very, '''very''' selective perception of in-game guards. One of these things is the fact that security guards will immediately call the police (which results in an InstantEmergencyResponse of a few hundred cops) if they spot a loot bag (that is to say, valuables loaded in a gym bag) (see [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snk9CqiFvvo&t=75s here for a fan mocking that aspect of the game.) But thanks to TheWarOnTerror, this behavior of calling the cops when spotting an unattended gym bag is actually the most realistic thing that happens in Payday 2, believe it or not.

** From the same game, the game's Pokémon League is an ice-covered mountain. Being that it is based off of Hawai'i, a lot of people felt this was bizarre, except that it was actually based off of Mauna Kea - which has seasonal glaciation.

* When any videogame features a shotgun that attempts to downplay, subvert, or avert ShortRangeShotgun, expect at least one person complaining about how powerful they are on a message board to profess [[SarcasmMode expert firearm knowledge]] and profess that "real" shotguns don't have that much range.

** Assassin's Creed II was also absolutely rife with complaints about the atrocious, exaggerated Italian accents. From its very large cast of Italian actors.
