** Another similar episode had Nicole becoming jealous of one of her friends at school who had developed breasts before her. The judge told her about one of her friends back then. When Nicole asked her if said friend was the first to get breasts in her school, the judge told her : "I was the first one to get breasts in my class !", and told her of all she suffered because of that, including the breaking up of her friendship with the girl she was talking about.

* In ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'', Drive's sentient TransformationTrinket Mr. Belt tells Shinnosuke the story of a scientist whose invention was used for evil and spent the rest of his life trying to make up for it. Shinnosuke guesses that this trope is in play, but Mr. Belt explains that he was actually talking about Alfred Nobel and the invention of dynamite. [[spoiler:Double subverted later on, when it's revealed that the story could just as easily apply to Krim Steinbelt, Mr. Belt's original identity, since one of his inventions serves as the power source for the MonstersOfTheWeek.]]

* Played with in "Three Wooden Crosses", made popular by Randy Travis, where four passengers board a bus, "A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher." At the end of the song, it's revealed that it's a preacher telling the story. The twist is that the preacher telling the story is actually the hooker's son, having been inspired by the bloodstained Bible that the preacher gave to his mother before dying.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' when a space warrior named Raditz appears claiming to be Goku's brother, Master Roshi tells Goku of a story his grandfather once told him.
-->'''Roshi''': A long time ago, your Grandpa Gohan was walking through the woods when he came upon a strange object that appeared to have fallen from the sky. When he went to examine it more closely, he found a baby boy with a tail, sealed inside a little round pod. Gohan decided to take the childhome and raise him as his own. But the boy had an angry, violent nature, and before long the old man was at his wits' end. Then one day, there was a terrible accident. The child fell into a deep ravine and hit his head. The injury was nearly fatal. But somehow, miraculously, the boy survived. What's more, after that, he was no longer violent. From that day on, he became a happy, loving boy.
-->'''Goku''': The boy was me, wasn't it?
-->'''Roshi''': Yes...

* The opening narration of every episode of ''Radio/TheLivesOfHarryLime'':
--> ''That was the shot that killed Harry Lime. He died in a sewer beneath Vienna, as those of you know who saw the movie ''Film/TheThirdMan''. Yes, that was the end of Harry Lime ... but it was not the beginning. Harry Lime had many lives ... and I can recount all of them. How do I know? Very simple. Because my name is Harry Lime.''

This trope can be subverted when the narrator is asked how the story is relevant, with bonus points for the story being depressing, and he replies with something along the lines of "Fuck if I know." Can be double-subverted if he follows up with something about the story that was inspirational from the story. From here, it can encounter the rare triple-subversion if it is revealed afterwards, such as after the other characters leave, he reveals that he was in that story, such as pulling out a memento or taking one off of the wall/shelf, and talking about his companions or saying something along the lines of "Good times..."
