* In the ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks'' episode, "Dogs from Space", Martha opens a refrigerator and takes out bread, Bologna, pickles, ketchup, mustard and mayo and says, "I know exactly what to make out of this!" What do you think she's going to make? A sandwich, right? No! She makes what she calls "a delicious mess"!

* Happens in Music/HoneyWorks' "Ai no Scenario". The music video opens with LoveTriangle between a noble lady who must choose between [[RichSuitorPoorSuitor her rich but abusive fiance and her peasant lover]]. She eloped with the poor suitor and seemingly got killed on the run. Flash forward to the future, the girl is now dating a nice, brunet who looks like the poor lover, but their time together is constantly disrupted by an unpleasant blond who is rather reminiscent of the rich fiance. Later, it's revealed that the brunet is actually her past rich fiance who's just pretending to be nice, while the blond guy is the poor lover, who's behaving crudely because he knows of the other guy's scheme.

[[folder:Visual Novels]] * ''VisualNovel/HarvestDecember:'' ** January's story ends with a Rock-Paper-Scissors match and the narrative is structured to make the reader think that the protagonist of that chapter utilized PoorPredictableRock. ** March's story begins with the main protagonist sheepishly looking at women's magazines for parenting tips. Everyone assumes he'd gotten his girlfriend pregnant but, in reality, was preparing for a babysitting job. ** August's chapter includes the series's obligatory bath peeping moment and the mother of the one of the heroines baits the boys into thinking she wants to join in. Once they lower their guard, she beats them up and delivers them to the girls for further punishment. [[/folder]]

* One chapter of ''Manga/FrankenFran'' starts off with a young girl waking up in the middle of the night, and coming face-to-face with a monster that attacks her. It turns out to be a horror movie Fran and her assistants are watching.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'', there's a scene where Sully tries to hide from Randal. Randal makes this face of shock as if he thought he heard something, but really, he made that face because he felt a sneeze coming on.
