I'm not sure if it goes here, but is the briefcase in Pulp Fiction "obviously supernatural?". I don't want to start an edit war, but I've always read that the original idea is that it was the diamonds from Reservoir Dogs, but eventually just turned into some bulbs in a box to motivate the plot. I have read theories about it being Marcellus Wallace' soul, but that's unsubstantiated. Maybe just remove the entry entirely?

A problem i noted- the first phrase of the text uses the word "unstated" and the following paragraph uses " even if this is never made explicit in the narrative." turning the "unstated" part more obvious. Despite this, all the examples are about stated things that are equal/not equal to real life- similar to the existence of "superheroes, vampires, aliens, or a fictional President of the United States." or "completely fantastic settings that have their own fictional history, geography, and culture", as noted in the own description.

To an example, why "sakuradite" is more worthy of an example than "geass" in Code Geass?

To an other example, this example in the Comic Book session:

DC Comics avert this more than Marvel Comics, since in DC not only are most of the stories set in entirely fictional cities, unlike Marvel they are more willing to follow their own history (e.g. In Marvel, in the 2000's George W. Bush was President, as in Real Life; in DC, the President was Lex Luthor, before he was impeached halfway through his first-term on the grounds of trying to kill Superman—or rather, getting caught doing it). Both follow a (rough) history similar to Earth, but DC makes a decision to divert that Marvel does not.
