* ''Series/HouseOfCardsUS'': General Brockhart, who is selected as Will Conway's running mate. He's not a natural politician. As a result, lying does not come easily to him and Frank sees right through his poor attempts at deception.
-->'''Frank Underwood:''' Conscience has an unmistakable stink to it, sort of like raw onions and morning breath. But a lie stinks even more when it's coming from someone who isn't used to lying. It's more like rotten eggs and horse shit.

** In the second game, [[spoiler: Wheatley]] isn't exactly good at this either. For instance, trying to "hack" the neurotoxin control system: "Hello Guv'. Neurotoxin inspector, need to shut this place down for a moment. Here's my credentials; shut yourself down. I am totally legit, from the board of neurotoxin, uh, observers, from the United Arab Emirates."
** In ''both'' games they tell quite a few lies that suggest they have a very low opinion of Chell's intelligence (like trying to convince her to leap into a bottomless pit by saying a sex-starved boy band is down there). Whether she ''is'' stupid enough to actually fall for most of them [[GameplayAndStorySegregation depends on the player.]]

* The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' "Meet the Medic" video shows that the Medic is a bit of a bad liar: he claims that ribs grow back, and the Heavy looks unconvinced even before the Medic turns to one of his pet doves and loudly whispers, "No zhey don't." It's unclear why he even bothered to claim that ribs grow back, because the [[HealingShiv Medigun]] should make it a moot point anyway.
** Its funny because ribs DO grow back

* Cotton Hill from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. To give one example, he tells Peggy numerous war stories in one episode that make him seem like a hero, but simply don't make sense when you look at them all at a whole. (One of them places him at a location hundreds of miles away from another one that, according to him, took place just a couple of days earlier.)

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' Grim discovers that Morg, the Reaper of Mars, had something to do with the disappearances of the rest of the solar system's reapers. When he asks what happened to all of them, Morg says offhandedly, "Oh, they were vaporized... [[TheCoronerDothProtestTooMuch Complete accidents, every one of them.]]" (This is very hard to believe, seeing as he keeps complete records on why each one was vaporized ''with video footage'' of it. None of the cases looks like an accident.)

'''Brian:''' They are -- I'm-I'm washing them in some fabric softener because last night they were so itchy I couldn't sleep which is why I was downstairs when you asked me if everything was okay... You know, 'cause it was so itchy.

* Phineas from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' in "The Beak". He scratches his ear, stutters and giggles nervously whenever he lies in that episode, and he lies only to Isabella, for that matter. Phineas also lies to Candace in "Out of Toon" & "The Curse of Candace", in the former that the audience loves her as the BigBad, and the latter to prove that she's not a vampire, but ultimately ends up turning her to dust, i.e. killing her.
* The titular [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Venture Brothers]] are a prime example.
--> '''Sea Captain:''' Yer... not a good liar, are ya, Dean?
--> '''Dean:''' Mmmmmmaybe...
* Beezy on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''. He'll often buckle under pressure and tell people to quit interrogating him, even if they're simply commenting casually to what he is saying.
* Applejack from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is defined by her honesty, the Element of Harmony she represents. In the second season premiere, Discord turns her into a liar, but doesn't exactly give her the skills to do it well. Every time she lies, she bites her lip and makes shifty eyes, and when she's actually speaking, she blurts it out in a manner that makes her look like the dumbest pony alive - both in facial expression and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} content]]. She gets better at it in the next episode, at which point it's soon resolved. It certainly says a lot about a character's integrity when they have difficulty lying even when being ''magically compelled'' to do so.
** Applejack doesn't need Discord's help to be a bad liar - also in Party of One, she's perhaps the only one to have a decent, plausible, ready-made excuse for not attending the party (that being that she's busy harvesting apples). It still takes her a good few seconds of gazing over the acres of farmland, buckets of apples, and "um"ing and "ah"ing before she finally manages to blurt something out.
** Apparently, it runs in the family. Apple Bloom is also a terrible liar. For example, when she was "explaining" that Granny Smith couldn't come to class because of a family emergency, she involuntarily gave a nervous smile and her eyes started shifting. Apparently, she can cross "poker player" off her list of cutie mark attributes.
** In "Party of One," the rest of the mane six have to come up with reasons why they can't attend [[GenkiGirl Pinkie]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Pie]]'s party. Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy top the list by claiming they're housesitting for "Harry the Bear" who's on a beach vacation... [[StereoFibbing playing beach volleyball/collecting seashells/collecting volleyballs/playing seashells]]. Rainbow Dash even doodles a watch on her wrist just so she can look at it and "realize" they're late. Of course, since this is Pinkie Pie they're talking to, their excuse is the ''one'' excuse she accepts when she starts to put things together.
* Artemis in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. She looks away, stutters, and visibly has to fish for ideas when lying. This is made kind of hilarious by the fact that [[spoiler:her father and sister are supervillains, and her mother is a reformed one]]. Which is usually what she's lying about.

** Apparently, it runs in the family. Apple Bloom is also a terrible liar. For example, when she was "explaining" that Granny Smith couldn't come to class because of a family emergency, she involuntarily gave a nervous smile and her eyes started shifting. Apparently, she can cross "poker player" off her list of cutie mark attributes.
** In "Party of One", the rest of the mane six have to come up with reasons
why we...hurgh...''they'' lost they can't attend [[GenkiGirl Pinkie]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Pie]]'s party. Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy top the war! Lack list by claiming they're housesitting for "Harry the Bear" who's on a beach vacation... [[StereoFibbing playing beach volleyball/collecting seashells/collecting volleyballs/playing seashells]]. Rainbow Dash even doodles a watch on her wrist just so she can look at it and "realize" they're late. Of course, since this is Pinkie Pie they're talking to, their excuse is the ''one'' excuse she accepts when she starts to put things together.
* Phineas from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' in "The Beak". He scratches his ear, stutters and giggles nervously whenever he lies in that episode, and he lies only to Isabella, for that matter. Phineas also lies to Candace in "Out
of science!Toon" & "The Curse of Candace", in the former that the audience loves her as the BigBad, and the latter to prove that she's not a vampire, but ultimately ends up turning her to dust, i.e. killing her.
* An entire episode of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' revolved around Rigby betting Mordecai that he was this, while Mordecai attempted to prove him wrong.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. After being accused of toilet papering someone's house:
-->'''Cartman:''' Okay. Last night, all four of us were at the bowling alley until about 7:30, at which time we noticed Ally Sheedy, the Goth chick from the Breakfast Club, was bowling in the lane next to us, and we asked her for her autograph, but she didn't have a pen, so we followed her out to her car, but on the way we were accosted by five Scientologists who wanted to give us all personality tests, which were administered at the Scientology Center in Denver until 10:45, at which time we accidentally boarded the wrong bus home and ended up in Rancho de Fritas Rojos, south of Castle Rock, and finally got a ride home with a man who was missing his left index finger, named Gary Bushwell, arriving home at 11:46.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': In [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS1E04BreakingRanks "Breaking Ranks"]], as part of a plan to steal an Imperial encryption module from Agent Kallus' office, Ezra's new friend Zare Leonis has the job of distracting Kallus so Ezra can [[MindOverMatter telekinetically]] steal the module. Zare does this by claiming he has a delivery of ''used podracer parts'' for the agent. And Zare is so nervous doing it that Kallus suspects something is up.


Added DiffLines:

* Liar Starscream (whom WordOfGod definitely hasn't named Ramjet...) from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' [[BlatantLies never speaks a word other than the truth. Everything he says most certainly does not sound like a lie.]] [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Ramjet_(Animated) This page]] at the [[Wiki/TFWikiDotNet Transformers Wiki]] is not about him, and does not make his lying (which he never does BTW) [[SelfDemonstratingArticle really, really obvious.]]
** Ironically this means he really can't lie -- as long as you keep in mind that what he's saying is a lie, swap it around and you've got the truth.
* The titular [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Venture Brothers]] are a prime example.
--> '''Sea Captain:''' Yer... not a good liar, are ya, Dean?
--> '''Dean:''' Mmmmmmaybe...
* Artemis in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. She looks away, stutters, and visibly has to fish for ideas when lying. This is made kind of hilarious by the fact that [[spoiler:her father and sister are supervillains, and her mother is a reformed one]]. Which is usually what she's lying about.

* Thief, Red Mage, and Black Mage from ''[[Webcomic/EightBitTheater 8-Bit Theater]]'' are prone to this. Thief, however, has the force of personality to succeed in regularly conning people with his bald-faced lies.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Hot Pie. Arya sees through his attempts to lie. He does manage to grow out of this in Season 4, when he glibly dismisses the Starks as all traitors and denies any knowledge of them to Brienne and Podrick until he can be sure he can trust them.
