*In ''FanFic/WeightOfTheWorld'' Team RWBY refuses to believe Emerald was the one who attempted to pickpocket America when he and Canada arrived in Vale, dismissing America's claim as soon as he brought it up. This results in the brothers not sharing their discovery that Emerald has a hallucination Semblance with them or JNPR. [[spoiler: In contrast, when America tells Penny about the Semblance and Emerald and her team's untrustworthiness, she believes him immediately.]]

* The Closing Logo Group encountered this when Professor D.L. Chandell claimed a logo variant discovered by a user named Supermarty-o, the "Cokeburst", was a phony. A massive administrative shakeup followed which began with his expulsion from the CLG. Just over two years later, it was definitively discovered that the "Cokeburst", the veracity of which the CLG had defended against its own owner, was indeed fake, but the Professor certainly didn't help his case by acting like a major {{Jerkass}} about it. Needless to say, [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings the whole mess resulted in the site changing its policy on so-called "mythical logos"]].

* A quite magnificent example in the first episode of Series Two of Creator/TheBBC Radio 4 comedy ''The Casebook of Inspector Steine''. As it begins, Mrs Gloynes, the police station tea lady who is actually the crime boss of 1950s Brighton, has been laying low since the highly intelligent PC Twitten discovered her secret and agreed to keep quiet if the crimewave stopped. Near the end, the constable is reluctantly dragged on stage at a music hall and hypnotised to believe that "this charming Cockney charlady is a criminal mastermind". The episode ends with crime rates up again, and Steine telling Twitten that if there's no way to snap him out of this delusion, the least he could do is keep quiet about it.
* In the radio adaptation of ''Radio/DrJekyllAndMrHyde'', a fortuneteller insists that inside Jekyll's saintly exterior is a monster. The other characters shrug this off.

The title comes from the mythical seer [[TheCassandra Cassandra]], whose prophecies were always accurate, but never believed because of a {{curse}} placed on her by [[Myth/ClassicalMythology the god Apollo]], thus making this OlderThanFeudalism.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' has Chris, through his diary, talk about how Police Chief Brian Irons refused to listen to him when he talked about what happened in the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' involving the [[MegaCorp Umbrella corporation.]] Likewise in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'', Jill tried to warn the townspeople about what happened in the first game, but no one would listen to her. In the former, Irons was actually a CorruptCop taking bribes from Umbrella while in the latter, the townsfolk either were too afraid to speak out against Umbrella or [[ApatheticCitizens simply did not care.]] This results in the town being plagued with a viral outbreak that turns the town into a ZombieApocalypse and it gets so out of control that the U.S. government decides that [[ItsTheOnlyWayToBeSure nuking the town was the only option they had to contain the outbreak.]]

The very second skit in the first movie has a guy trying to be saved from his killer tie. The other guy just walks backwards away from him, leaving the first guy to whimper "Please don't hurt me..." and the tie to ''laugh''.
