* In ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' OAV episode 2, a combat robot begins launching missiles during a Halloween fireworks display in Elenore City Park, and the audience mistakes the missile explosions for fireworks (as do the pyrotechnicians themselves: "Whoa, when did we send up that really big one?") Kei and Yuri borrow some of the rockets and use them to ''kill'' the robot -- earning even more applause from the crowd in the park below.

* In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', Klavier Gavin is holding the concert when the guitar he's using - a gift from the guest star he's performing with - suddenly bursts into flame. However, the words sung at that moment were "Burn my life away, all away", so everyone in the audience thought it was part of the show. Klavier, meanwhile, was pretty ticked off over it.
** A different version from usual: in [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney the first game]], a young boy witnesses a murder, believing what he's seeing is a hero and a villain of a TV show fighting. This fact is reflected on the suspect and the victim being the actors who play the hero and the villain. In addition, the murder weapon was [[spoiler:at first thought to be]] the weapon the hero always uses in the show.

Klavier, meanwhile, was pretty ticked off over it, especially considering the guitar had great emotional value for him.

* Done ''straight'' in Bernard Cornwell's ''Literature/TheWarlordChronicles'' (a serious version of the KingArthur story). The Saxons know that the Celts have a series of beacons ready to light as soon as Saxon invaders are sighted. So they wait for the Beltane festival, when every Celtic community has a bonfire anyway...

* Part of the reason Per Yngve [[MeaningfulName "Dead"]] Ohlin's suicidal behavior went untreated was that most {{Mayhem}} shows featured gore and self-mutilation routinely. When Dead slashed his wrists and almost bled to death in one show, the audience assumed that once again he had meant to simply draw blood from elsewhere. It also didn't help that fellow bandmate Euronymous wanted Dead's self-mutilation to go to even more ridiculous lengths to build Mayhem's reputation and infamy, and he lied frequently about the state of Dead's mental health to prevent intervention as well as frequently egging him on.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'', titular character Jake has to get a legendary magical chalice that unfortunately was mistaken by the {{Muggles}} as an ordinary trophy. Cue a battle between two dragons on stage, and while there is one more GenreSavvy character who realises what's actually going on, he's dismissed by the principal on the belief that the dragons and fire are just pyrotechnics.
** [[spoiler: Although it was revealed that the principal was actually a mermaid, so it was possible she knew and (obviously) didn't want to say anything.]]

* ''Literature/LightThickens'' by Creator/NgaioMarsh is centred around a production of ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}''. A gruesome murder takes place at the end of one of the performances, and has to be covered up this way. It is mentioned later that those of the audience who noticed just thought that [[spoiler:the head was an "awfully good dummy".]]
--> The blood drips onto Seyton’s upturned face. And being well-trained professional actors, they respond, with stricken faces and shaking lips, "Hail, King of Scotland!" The curtain falls.

* The final episode of ''Manga/CatsEye'' revolves around a play about a female thief, with a famous actress portraying the victim. The sisters use the play as an opportunity to drug the actress and replace her valuable diamond with a fake, which goes completely unnoticed because of the show's subject matter. The cops only realize a robbery has occurred after the play is over and the girls have made off with the diamond.

* In the [[TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness]] crossover game ''Midnight Circus,'' the eponymous Carnival is surrounded by a {{Glamour}} Veil designed to hide the [[CircusOfFear true nature of the circus]] from its audience, usually by ensuring that anything unusual or disturbing is dismissed as part of the show. For example, [[MonsterClown Koba's Progressive Klown Show]] usually ends with a spy from a rival clown troupe being discovered, then chased down and eaten by Koba's enslaved werebear - all dismissed as special effects by the Glamour-baffled audience. If the player characters attempt to rescue the spy, the Glamour Veil just weaves them into the show, complete with comedy pratfalls and sad trombone music; the audience buys ''all of it,'' even when Koba's bodyguards open fire on the players with handguns and flamethrowers.

** In the [[VideoGame/Hitman2016 new episodic game]] the tutorial missions are re-enactments of past assassinations performed by ICA staff in a simulated environment. So snapping people's necks, shooting people in the head, murdering someone with an inflatable raft... no-one will bat an eye! [[SubvertedTrope ...up until a point]]. The actors will break character if Agent 47 [[spoiler: 'kills' Jasper Knight with an Ejection Seat malfunction]]. One even calls Agent 47 a 'Crazy Bastard'.

* Ian Curtis of Music/JoyDivision suffered from epilepsy and would frequently have tonic-clonic seizures on stage. These were mistaken for his stage moves by the audience, as Curtis was known for herky-jerky movements on stage.
