* Some of the people you interrogate in ''VideoGame/LANoire'' are such terrible liars that you can easily tell they're lying without having to read their facial expressions. For example, Phelps finds a losing betting ticket that has a person's name on it, whom he had interviewed earlier. The NPC he questions tries to weasel out of his connection to the person on the ticket by saying one of the goons Phelps shot dead a moment ago is the guy he was looking for. A very obviously and laughably bad lie.

* ''Podcast/TheLastPodcastOnTheLeft'' debates this trope in their series on Casey Anthony, a woman who was found not guilty of murdering her three year old daughter, regarding whether the woman was a great liar or a terrible liar. On the one hand, she told and, for the most part, ''got away'' with some real whoppers, such as leading police through an office building she only claimed to work at for a long time through sheer RefugeInAudacity. However, nearly all of those lies were easily disproven with only minimal effort because she consistently escalated into {{Snowball Lie}}s when called on anything. In the case of the office building she finally had to admit she didn't work at the office at all when she navigated police into a dead end.

* ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'': Timmy can't seem to come up with a good lie to explain all the wierd things he wishes for, each time he uses the WildCardExcuse "the Internet". He even uses it when he ''travels to a time before the Internet even existed''. Naturally, this comes to bite when he hooks himself to a LieDetector which his father adks him where he got it from. Then there's "the power of music" for how he and the famous singer Chip Skylark got to the latter's concert so fast.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''FalloutNewVegas'', if your character's relevant skill is not high enough to pass a dialog check, the response will instead be replaced by an attempt. If the check involves knowledge your character doesn't have, or is an attempt to lie, the dialog choice will involve dialog that's a painfully obvious lie, often with hesitation or stammering. If the required skill is technical in nature, it will usually involve BuffySpeak in place of the technically accurate terms.
