* ''Manga/SgtFrog'' has a chapter where the Platoon fools Fuyuki and Natsumi into thinking they have gotten serious about their invasion of Earth - they even hijack some news broadcasts and internet sites to amplify the effect of their supposed attacks on the population. It even includes a number of {{Shout Out}}s to OrsonWelles' radio adaptation of ''Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds''.

* In a first season episode of ''Series/{{Community}}'' the plot is centered around Britta's attempt at an April Fool's Prank, after being called a 'killjoy' one too many times. [[spoiler:The episode subverts the trope as Britta's prank horribly backfires (as do the rest of the group's antics) and so the April Fool's episode ultimately ends with all the characters in tears.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Elona}}'', when the in-game calendar reaches April, all generic NPC dialogue is replaced by BlatantLies (as well as a few lies that may be plausible enough to fool uninformed players).

If the show as a resident {{Jerkass}} or [[TheBully Bully]], that character might use this celebration to be a douchebag to everyone around them and simply yell ''"April Fools!"'' to be immediately [[JustJokingJustification immune from any form of criticism]]. They use the freedom of the day to be abusive towards others by pulling pranks and get away with it scot free! If that is the case, the episode will probably end with the [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin jerk getting his comeuppance]] ending with ''[[WhosLaughingNow "April Fools!"]]'' being uttered by the former victim as he or she pulls a prank ''on'' the prankster. Of course, there have been variations, with even the prankster getting away with it.
