** Durkon, a very lawful character, averts being LawfulStupid nicely when he convinces [[KnightTemplar Miko]] that the team wasn't trying to escape, their cages were open because of a mechanical defect. When questioned later he says that he considers "able to be picked by a rogue" to be a pretty big defect. More crucially, he gets around the fact that the other party members left their cells by stating that the '''five''' of them, as in ''collectively'', didn't leave the cells he stayed in his.

* A Demoness in ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' uses this when offering a DealWithTheDevil; she claims to be the guardian of the [[MacGuffin Orb of Bloodlight]], and offers a trade of "one soul for one orb". Dies-Horibly offers up himself for the bargain, and is given a non-magical orb made of ordinary blue stone instead. The demon gloats that Dies should have specified which orb he wanted when the deal was made. It comes back to haunt her immediately afterwards; Dies' [[EmpathicWeapon magical arm]] apparently possesses a soul of its own, because the demoness is horrified to learn that she claimed two souls instead of one, and accuses the goblins of trickery. The "powers that be" deem her guilty of breaking a demonic contract, and [[FateWorseThanDeath banish her to the plane of torture]].

* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', Matt's vow to himself that he won't so much as look at another woman until he wins Kiley back would be a bit more authentically noble if [[spoiler:he wasn't bisexual]]. (Strip #1079, October 06, 2015, NSFW.)

Removed an erroneous explanation about an OOTS example (there were 5 present; Belkar would make 6)

More crucially, he gets around the fact that the other party members left their cells by stating that the '''five''' of them, as in ''collectively'', didn't leave the cells he stayed in his. Or, equally: because Belkar is in solitary confinement, there are four rather than five party members present. Both technicalities work.

* ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' has [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1066.html this]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1059.html case]]: the players wonder what kind of SingleBiomePlanet Bespin will be.

** Another example in 'Dededoo'. A character who looks like, but [[SubvertedTrope isn't]], a PaperThinDisguise of Dedede, comes to kirby's door and announces an intention to "CLEAN YOUR CLOCK!!!". He proceeds to wipe down kirby's grandfather clock with a damp rag and then exit peacefully.
