* As part of one ''BrawlInTheFamily'' mini-series, Ganondorf and Bowser swap enemies to take them down easier. When Link sees that he has to fight Bowser, Navi confidently announces that they can't lose because Link has a fireproof tunic. However, it turns out that it doesn't make Link fireproof as well.

** Grubwiggler has no intention of re-animating [[spoiler:Roy Greenhilt's]] corpse as an Undead. What he does intend to do is transform it into a bone golem, which under D&D rules, is a Construct.

** When O-Chul was asked if he was the one who [[spoiler:destroyed the Azure City Gate]], he admits that he did decide to do that, and it was his blade that did the deed. He also roundabout admits that he's engaging in this trope, by immediately adding that he won't elaborate because [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead he won't speak ill of the dead]]. [[spoiler:The situation that caused him to decide to destroy the Gate had already been resolved, but Miko, not understanding this, took his sword from his (paralyzed) hands to finish the job as part of her KnightTemplar-ish [[VillainousBreakdown Breakdown]].]]

* ''Webcomic/TerrorIsland'':
** ** Liln has to call Sid a "privateer wordsmith" because she lost a bet; they were arguing over whether Pluto was the farthest planet, but both failed to specify what it was farthest ''from'' and so Sid clarified that he meant "farthest from Pluto".
** In [[http://www.terrorisland.net/strips/066.html Strip #66]], Sid tells Jame "don't panic, but there's a small chance that, through no fault of my own, I may have summoned a demon into you". Jame is definitely possessed, but there's a small chance it wasn't Sid's fault.
** From [[http://www.terrorisland.net/strips/027.html Strip #27]]:
-->'''York''': Stephen, your word is "Camelopard".\\
'''Stephen''': Can you use it in a sentence?\\
'''York''': Almost certainly.\\
'''Stephen''': Sorry, ''will'' you use it in a sentence?\\
'''York''': Probably not. It isn't a very common word.
** In [[http://www.terrorisland.net/strips/162.html Strip #162]], the Green Grocer responds to the others not wanting to hear his story with "alright, but if you don't want to hear my story, you won't get to hear about werewolf valkyries". He was telling the truth, he just omitted the fact that they wouldn't get to hear about werewolf valkyries either way.
** In [[http://www.terrorisland.net/strips/243.html Strip #243]], Sid asks Jame "If I don't know anything about skating boards, then how do you explain my undefeated record?"
-->'''Jame''': I give up. How?\\
'''Sid''': Oh, easy. I've never entered any competitions before.

** In another instance, the Mayor cripples Florence by ordering her to be silent, and since Florence is hardcoded to obey humans, she cannot speak ''at all''. Sam manages to find a loophole by sending the Mayor a message that paraphrases to "If you don't say otherwise, we'll assume your order has been cancelled" and couching it in enough of his personal annoying diatribe that it makes the Mayor livid. She sends back a massively hate-filled response chewing him out, but forgets to include anything saying her order still stands.
