* In the board game Dungeon Petz, if a baby monster isn't sold before it matures, it is discarded from play. The rulebook states that it is released to live happily on a farm...and tells you to add an extra meat resource to the market whenever this happens. For some strange reason.

* Wrestling/JohnLaurinaitis constantly attempted to claim his actions were in the spirit of "People Power" and therefore giving the audience what they want. Yeah, giving heels unfair advantages and firing [[Wrestling/JimRoss fan favorite]] [[Wrestling/JohnMorrison employees]], including [[Wrestling/TheBigShow one for simply mocking your voice]], are [[SarcasmMode truly selfless acts]].
* Wrestling/TripleH and Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon, as the leaders of Wrestling/TheAuthority since 2013, have claimed that all of their actions are best for business. Apparently screwing over Wrestling/DanielBryan at every turn, threatening to fire anyone who tried to aid him, orchestrating the breakup of [[Wrestling/TheShield major stables]], and firing [[Wrestling/DolphZiggler employees]] [[Wrestling/RyBack who]] [[Wrestling/ErickRowan aided]] Wrestling/JohnCena in trying to take them out of power are all good business decisions. At least during the [=McMahon-Helmsley=] Era in 2000, also led by the two, they openly admitted to screwing people over intentionally and only covered it up when they were backed into a corner.

* In the RPG ''Spycraft'', a 10th level Faceman has the ability to tell one bald-faced lie that can't immediately be proven false and must be believed. "The sky is purple" is legitimate as long as they aren't outside or near a window.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Fanfic/BitterHarvest'' is likewise entirely built up around the main character being in denial and saying pretty much the exact opposite of what she actually thinks or means. By the end of it, Minuette is acting the same way.

-->'''Barb:''' ''[To Chris]'' How about if [Bob] takes you to the zoo?
--> '''Bob:''' THE FUCK DID YOU JUST TELL THAT BOY, BARBARA?!
--> '''Barb:''' Well, now we have to take him, look here, he's so excited, you'll upset him so much if we go back on our word.
--> '''Chris:''' ''[Trying to put Sonic & Knuckles lock-in cartridge on Sonic CD]''
--> '''Barb:''' And besides, there's a few thrift shops that have some really nice things in the windows on the way there...
--> '''Bob:''' This little shit tried to cop a feel of some lady just the other day and you want to TAKE HIM TO THE ZOO?! Are you TRYING to make this kid grow up and molest people? You're probably already teaching him that no means yes, that silence is consent and that if she doesn't run away screaming, that's a free ticket into her pants!
--> '''Barb:''' But look at him! He's already getting his jacket on!
--> '''Chris:''' ''[Trying to wipe a game disc with his pants]''
--> '''Bob:''' BARB, ARE YOU FUCKING DENSER THAN YOUR SON?!
--> '''Barb:''' Now look, you've made him cry!
--> '''Chris:''' ''[Stripping naked and looking for clothes he likes]''

* Disguised as Jester White with a PaperThinDisguise, Sirius Black in ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'' denies having even ever ''heard'' of such a person as Sirius Black. To Snape. Who just saw him put on the disguise.

In the ideal version of the trope, most people accept this because of their built-in WeirdnessCensor, or because it's executed as a SeamlessSpontaneousLie. When it fails, you get ThatLiarLies followed by ImplausibleDeniability. May or may not involve {{hesitation|EqualsDishonesty}}. Will almost inevitably accompany any PaperThinDisguise or MostDefinitelyNotAVillain. Often delivered by a BadLiar. SuspiciouslySpecificDenial is a subtrope. See also MetaphoricallyTrue.
