In various fictional settings, real materials may be portrayed as having different or additional properties, particularly when interacting with the unique elements of the setting itself. Image File history File links This is a lossless scalable vector image. ...

Name Source Uses
Aluminium Star Trek In the film Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Scotty gave the instruction to make the fictional material transparent aluminium. In fact, sapphire is an aluminium oxide (Al2O3) and is used as window material in some scientific applications.
Argon City of Heroes, City of Villains Experiments in argon make Science origin heroes and villains more resistant to damage.
Barium City of Heroes, City of Villains Being irradiated by barium is supposed to improve a Science origin hero's ability to avoid being hit.
Beryllium Galaxy Quest, The Shadow The starship NSEA Protector is powered by large spheres of beryllium. Also, beryllium is needed for the creation of a bomb and found by investigating the metal components of a supposed "beryllium coin" in The Shadow (1994). Beryllium's use in these fictional applications may arise from its actual use in some types of nuclear bombs.
Boron City of Heroes, City of Villains Being exposed to boron is supposed to improve a Science origin hero's ability to modify endurance. Probably connected to Boron's status as a conductor and the connection between electricity and endurance in the game.
Butadiene City of Heroes, City of Villains Being exposed to butadiene allows Science-origin heroes to jump higher. Probably connected to butadiene's use in making synthetic rubber.
Calcium carbonate Stargate SG-1 When made in suitable rocks such as calcium carbonate oxygen is produced as a by-product during the formation of Crystal tunnels by the Tokra allowing time to set up life support
Cermet Final Fantasy XI Super-hard material used to build structures, armor and weapons.
Cesium City of Heroes, City of Villains Exposure to cesium makes the sleep powers of a Science origin hero or villain more powerful.
Chloroform Various The use of chloroform to knock out a victim is a common plot element. Typically, a villain will spill a few drops from a small bottle onto a handkerchief, and then sneak up behind the victim. With the handkerchief clamped tightly over the mouth of the victim, there is a brief struggle before the victim slumps into unconsciousness. Portrayed after-effects are usually limited to a brief headache. In reality, a dose far greater than a few drops inhaled over a short while would be required to knock somebody out, and such a dose could also be lethal. The chloroform's effect to knock someone out would not be instantaneous.
Chocolate Harry Potter In Harry Potter, chocolate's mood-lifting psychoactive properties are greatly exaggerated, leading to its use as a cure for the depression caused by the Dementors.
Cobalt Mortal Kombat Conquest Drains the powers of all non Earthrealm-born humans. Effect is greater the closer to the material a non human is.

In Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove", a strange and very destructive weapon is said to use "Cobalt Thorium G", likely a reference to the cobalt bomb, a weapon of global destruction hypothesised by physicist Leó Szilárd.

It is actually expected to decompose messily at any reasonable pressure, but this doesn't prevent authors from building space ships out of it and attributing to it various desirable qualities as armor, structural material, etc. It may be that they are referring to the iron on the surface of these stars, which polymerises under the intense magnetic field to become 10000 times as dense as earth iron and a million times as strong as earth steel[citation needed] and which might be incorporated into a composite material in the same way as nanotubes.

Although applications for humans are limited to artificial respiration systems(i.e. LiquiVent), mice have survived prolonged submersions in liquid fluorocarbons in which the solubility of oxygen is very high.
