* ''Anime/BiorgTrinity'' is more of a sequence of non-sequiturs than an actual manga with a plot. It's written by Otaro Maijo, the man responsible for the infamous jorge josestar lightnovel and it's exactly as crazy as one would expect. The unnatural dialogue, bizarre plot twists and surreal yet amazingly drawn art make it hard to tell WTF is ever going on. This trope gets taken to literal levels when a girl wearing an outfit made of strung together bikinis gets skull-fucked in the back of her head by a Louis Vuitton panda bear.

* You have ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', a slice-of-life anime. The concept seems normal. Then they bring in a giant, floating [[MegaNeko cat]] that hates the color red and is voiced by ''[[Creator/NorioWakamoto Norio freakin' Wakamoto!]]'' Though Chiyo-chichi only exists in one character's dreams/daydreams. The other characters are appropriately weirded out when she mentions it in real life, besides [[CloudCuckooLander Osaka]], who saw him once as well, after Sakaki already made some hints about it. She is just screwed up enough to put everything together, but she did give Chiyo-chan the stuffed animal.

She is just screwed up enough to put everything together, but she did give Chiyo-chan the stuffed animal. The anime adds an extra screwy element by giving him random and brief appearances in between scenes, where he's floating around above the school.


* The ending of ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' is [[WeaselWords considered by many]] to be an example of this. (TheMovie, at any rate. The original manga ending is a lot less confusing.)


** While the actual series is majorly mind-screwy, it's ''End of Evangelion'' that truly takes trope and flings it out the window into unexplored territory. [[FanMyopia For the two of you out there who haven't seen it]], here some quick examples-

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/NijigaharaHolograph'' has a timeline which frequently jumps back and forth between the present and 11 years prior, with characters that at times appear to be in both the present and the past at once, and it's never clear which events are real and which are just people's delusions.

* ''Anime/CasshernSins'' is kind of hard to understand in general, but you can tend to take all the symbolism in stride. Episode 18, however, just kicks your brains out. It seems a fairly standard episode of Lyuze, who is trying to kill the robot who killed her sister, but actually loves him too. She dreams of her sister telling her not to forget her. But in the middle of all that, we have random photographs of a woman. No, I mean... PHOTOGRAPHS. As in of a human, not an anime character. [[spoiler:Given the themes of the episode, it may be her voice actor, but who knows?]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' is usually free of this... Except for the fact that, in the manga, there's at least ''three Sailor Pluto at the same time''.[[note]]The first Pluto is the one that lived from the Silver Millennium to the 30th century, and died in battle against the Black Moon. The second is Setsuna Meioh, reincarnation of the first that was born in the 20th century due Neo Queen Serenity's power. The third is the mysterious Super Sailor Pluto that appears in the 30th century during the final arc, and cannot be Setsuna as she was already in Eternal form. There's no explanation about this, she just appears from nowhere to notify Neo Queen Serenity of the consequences of Galaxia's actions-and Serenity finds her presence perfectly normal[[/note]]

* ''Anime/DragonBallZFusionReborn'': Even for {{Franchise/Dragonball}}, this movie is weird. An evil essence tank overloads and turns into a giant, demon, man-baby that warps reality for both the dead and living world. He traps King Yemma and the spirit world in giant, multi-colored orbs and the only way to free Yemma is to curse like crazy which, in turn, causes the orbs to crack. Meanwhile Goten and Trunks are fighting Hitler.

* ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''. So ambiguous and convoluted at times that official translators admit in the notes that they're making a guess and winging it. Unofficial translators do not say such in the notes only because that takes up space better filled by actively and profusely cursing at Creator/{{CLAMP}}. Making a timeline for this series is [[TimeyWimeyBall practically impossible]]. And don't even think about trying to create a [[MyOwnGrampa character chart]]. Even the ''characters'' are baffled by some of what's going on. Among the characters that have expressed a great deal of confusion is ''TheChessmaster BigBad''. AKA, the man who ''planned'' a decent chunk of the confusing events. And believe or not, in a CrowningMomentOfFunny, now that ''Manga/XxxHolic'' has ended, even WordOfGod has admitted that '''they too are rather confused over how everything turned out and want to re-read it'''.

%%* ''Manga/MPDPsycho'' -- If you're smart you ''might'' able to follow the story up to Book 4...


* ''Manga/PandoraHearts''. The series as a whole. With ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' as its template, this isn't all too surprising. It only gets worse as the series progresses... [[spoiler: Various characters thought to be the epitome of truth were lying, and their truth was what was keeping us all sane.]]
