What happens when a GenreSavvy character realizes that the incredibly absurd story he's just been told ''has'' to be true -- for the simple reason that no one in his right mind would claim such a ridiculous story ''unless'' it were true.

* In ''VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyJusticeForAll'', one testimony has a witness claim that they saw the defendant, a magician by the stage name "Maximillion Galactica", murder the victim then escape by ''flying into the sky''. Although it's subverted in that Phoenix is the only one who actually believes the witness if the player picks the opinion to believe him. Although incidentally [[spoiler:he wasn't actually lying. He just believed that what he saw was the murderer flying.]]

* In ''VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'', has [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Larry Butz]] show his masterpiece drawing that he says is ''exactly'' what he saw at the time. The masterpiece shows a silhouette flying above a burning bridge. ''Nobody'' believes it's real... until Edgeworth realizes that Larry's drawing ''is'' correct. [[spoiler: Larry was lying on his back and looking up at the bridge, so what he actually saw was a body swinging ''underneath'' the bridge, but then drew the scene upside-down]].

* In ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', Alfred uses this to explain Bruce Wayne's injuries he incurs as the Batman. In one instance he claims that Bruce was injured by 'falling out of a hot air balloon onto a table of cheese blintzes' because the story was 'too ridiculous to be disbelieved.'

* Played straight, lampshaded, and subverted, in the comedy panel show ''Series/WouldILieToYou''. The premise of the show is that the two panellist teams must vote on whether the story/fact the member of the opposing team just read out about themselves is true or a lie. The stories often end up being ludicrous, and this trope is often played with, z log of the time being played straight.
