* In ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', in what appears to be a similar example to the ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana'' example above, Mario comes back to town from Shooting Star Summit and told that Merlon is looking for him. When he knocks on the door, he'd told that Merlon is out. If he tries again, he is again told that Merlon is out, but the door opens, knocking him down. A man in a robe comes out, and when Mario gets up, they go inside, he reveals himself to be Merlon.
** Mario is trying to get to Dry Dry Ruins. He meets with a mouse called Sheik. Mario may part with an item to be told that Moustafa knows how to get there. If Mario gives him the right item, he'll be able to tell Mario how to see Moustafa: by buying items in the correct order, which is a sign to the shopkeeper. Upon following these directions, Mario arrives to find... Sheik! And he was Moustafa all along!

* When Bruce Banner goes looking for the Panchen Lama in ''Ultimate {{Wolverine}} vs. [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]]'', he is greeted at the monastery doors by a wizened old man who assures him that the Lama is inside and offers him hot cocoa. Banner shows a flash of insight by assuming the old man is the Panchen Lama, calling it "one of those Yoda things"... but [[AvertedTrope nope]]. He's talking to Steve, who makes hot cocoa.

* This is played with in ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' with Radical Edward, Jet sarcastically comments that they should be expecting something like a 3-year-old, 7-foot alien genius that plays basketball based on a series of widely varying descriptions they got. When Ed hacks into their computer and they ask who Radical Edward is, she responds in her perpetual adorable third person way of talking, "But Ed is Ed." In case it wasn't clear: Edward is very much a girl tacking on the "Assumed Wrong Gender" part of this trope.

* ''{{Suikoden}}'' pulls this trick when you're first looking for TheStrategist. It's sort of given away by the fact that ''his name is in the textbox'' when you're asking him where he lives.

** As is to be expected from this game, it's ''hilarious''.

** As is to be expected from this game, it's ''hilarious''. Since you start in front of the quest-giver when the "Find the captain" game starts, it's also not unknown for players to rush through the dialogue, accidentally choose "Yes" when they're asked to confirm their choice for the captain, and win without realizing ''what the hell they did''.
