* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'': The Holy Grail that grants its user immortality is kept inside a room with cups of all shapes and sizes. The old Knight Templar who guards it explains that the [[OnlyTheWorthyMayPass final test to prove oneself worthy]] is to pick out the right one. Donovan assumes that the Holy Grail must be a magnificent treasure fit for a king, a Jesus was the Son of God. The gold gem-encrusted cup he chooses to drink from turns out to be the wrong one, and he decays into a pile of ashes within seconds. Indiana then chooses the real one, which turns out to be an ordinary-looking cup that the son of a carpenter would use.
-->'''Templar:''' He chose... poorly.

* Used by the heroes in SequentialArt; most of the other party members have been drugged to sheer stupidity, so Art gets them to follow him by [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=860 offering a "prize"]]. Which is just a ruse.

* ''SpongeBobSquarepants'' uses a variation of the trope in one episode. Spongebob replacing his old spatula with a high-tech one, then crawls back to his old one after his new one declares it's too good for him. Spongebob even says "all that glitters is not gold". And the episode title is... * drumroll* All That Glitters.

Not everything that looks valuable on the surface is actually valuable. A bright facade on a house can conceal a rotting foundation. Makeup can conceal age and illness. A bright smile can hide deceit and hostility. Appearances can be deceiving.

Not everything that looks valuable on the surface is actually valuable. A bright glimmering facade on a house can conceal (whether metaphorical or literal) conceals a rotting foundation. Makeup can conceal conceals age and illness. A bright smile can hide deceit hides a life of suffering and hostility. Appearances sorrow.

* A little short story in the ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' manga dealt with the host club trying to find the perfect soup that their principal had sampled when he was younger. Turns out it was a very common soup and that the one giving the soup to the principal would later be his wife.
