''Film/NotANotherTeenMovie'': Jake's sister Catherine advises him that if he wants to get Janey's attention he must sing a song with her name in it. While Janey is taking an outdoor art class, Jake commandeers the school's PA system and sings [[Music/{{Aerosmith}} 'Janey's Got A Gun']]. One of the other students points a finger at her and shouts "She's got a gun!" Everyone except Janey screams and runs off, and the police converge on her; panicking, she runs, is wrestled to the ground by two cops and gratuitously tasered into insensibility.

* Zig-zagged in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' with one of [[FanNickname Phone Guy's]] bits of advice: He suggests playing dead if you're caught since the animatronics might assume you're an empty suit and leave you alone, but ''immediately'' takes it back realizing it could backfire badly with them instead trying to stuff an endoskeleton ''into'' you. [[spoiler:It's zig-zagged when it turns out playing dead ''can'' work: when you're out of power playing dead (not moving the mouse at all) you'll get a solid minute of Freddy's song heartedly support Jesse and become just as adversarial to Gus' operation. This gets lampshaded the next time Walt and Mike see each other, and Mike is less than pleased about the fact.
* One of the first few episodes of ''Series/The100'' has Bellamy try to help a little girl deal with her nightmares by giving her the same advice his mother gave him: "Don't be scared of the demons; ''fight back''." This backfires when [[spoiler: we find out her before he attacks. Since an hour's only a minute and a half, playing dead ''can'' buy you enough time to finish the night if you run out of power after 5.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', Eeyore seeks Tigger's advice on how to be popular. Tigger explains, "[[BeYourself I've just got to be me!]]" Unluckily, Eeyore understands this to mean [[IJustWantToBeYou he just has to be Tigger]]. [[HilarityEnsues This doesn't work out so well]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "The Damned", Hillary Clinton's associates advise her to say "My opponent is a liar and should not be trusted" as a response to anything Mr. Garrison will say in their debate. However, they didn't expect Garrison to try to throw his campaign and say that Clinton will make a better president than him, which ends up getting Garrison more supporters than ever, to both campaign's chagrins.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': Kaneki's MissingMom always told him that it's "better to be hurt than to hurt others." Not only did following her own advice result in his mother literally working herself to death to provide for both her own home and that of her {{Jerkass}} sister, who [[TakingAdvantageOfGenerosity took advantage of her at every opportunity]], but following it himself resulted in Kaneki being captured and undergoing ten days of ColdBloodedTorture at the hands of the crazed ghoul Yamori, resulting in him discarding his humanity altogether.
