* A story (perhaps anecdotal or urban legend) of an artist who was commissioned to do the life of Christ in a giant mural. He started with Christ's birth, using the most cherubic baby he could find as a model, and after years reached the end, but was only stuck on the model for Judas. He simply could not find anyone degraded enough to use, until he finally found a worn-out drunk with the most depraved look and hired him. The drunk could hardly refuse the money, but when they reached the studio and saw the mural he burst into tears. Asked why, he said "I know about this painting. My mother told me about it. I was the model for the Christ child."

* At one point in ''{{Arcanum}}'', you are required to visit a penal colony. One of the inmates offers to tell you a story about the nation of Cumbria, which has fallen on hard times in recent years. He ends the story with the words '...and the rightful heir to Cumbria's throne was shipped off to a penal colony, never to be heard from again', at which point you realise you've spent the past few minutes chatting with a member of the Cumbrian royal family.

* In ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'',
** Stick tells a story about how a child began fighting the [[spoiler: Hand]], killing them until they were driven out and this act of defiance was the origin of his organization, the Chaste. Matt assumes Stick is talking about himself and sarcastically compliments him on keeping himself at the center. What the audience sees of the Chaste indicates Stick isn't its leader, suggesting this assumption may well be wrong.
** At Frank Castle's trial, Colonel Schoonover testifies as a character witness, and tells a story about a stupid officer who got Castle's squad into an ambush, that caused said idiot officer to lose his arm. When Reyes claims no one can really know what happened if they weren't there, Schoonover says he ''was'' that idiot officer, completely undercutting Reyes' argument.

* ''Literature/TheSagaOfTheFaroeIslanders'': Sigmund and Thorir spend six years in seclusion with farmer Ulf and his small family at their hidden homestead in the mountains of Dovre. When they depart, Ulf tells them a story of a young man called Thorkel Crispfrost who carried off a woman called Ragnhild when her father refused to give her in marriage to him. This caused a feud in which Ragnhild's father and nineteen others were killed; Thorkel was outlawed and made a secret homestead for himself and Ragnhild in the mountains. His story ends with the predictable revelation that he himself is Thorkel Crispfrost.
