If the person telling the truth is an NPC in a video game, they're spouting InfallibleBabble. In this case, the in-game characters won't believe them, but a GenreSavvy player will.

* The upcoming board game ''Secret Hitler'' is based on this. Most of the players are liberals, a smaller number are fascists, and one of them is Hitler, but the liberals don't know who Hitler or the fascists are. What ensues is everyone constantly doubting each other. There is no easy way to know whether the chancellors passing fascist policies actually had no other choice or are furthering their own agenda. This is a game of lies and bluffing, and frequently liberals inadvertently shoot other liberals.

* Azazel from ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' was the angelic personification of Truth. His demonic archrival [[ManipulativeBastard Tlacolotl]] was losing the war against the angels and knew it, and managed to convince Azazel to have a talk with the unyielding god of justice Namm about his overall strategy. Azazel, being incapable of telling lies, told Namm that he was going too far with the BlackAndWhiteInsanity and thus became its next casualty, creating a division between angelkind at a critical moment in time.

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', everyone is busily wondering why the title character seems so miserable and even insane. At one point, Queen Gertrude--Hamlet's mother--comments that the most likely cause of her son's behavior is the death of his father and her and Claudius's "o'erhasty marriage." She's 100% correct, but naturally no one listens to her until it's far too late.

* {{Trope Namer|s}}: Within ''Theatre/TheOresteia'', in the play ''Theatre/{{Agamemnon}}'' by Creator/{{Aeschylus}}, Cassandra gives a prophecy revealing Clytaemnestra's plan to kill her husband, Agamemnon. Although the chorus ''does'' try to listen to Cassandra, they don't understand a thing she says, and eventually ask her to stop talking about such horrible things, because they would never happen.

This is all part of Apollo's curse on Cassandra: she's [[BlessedWithSuck doomed to be able to see the future, but without anyone ever believing or understanding what she predicts.]]



* In ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'': The entire play hinges on a play on words and this trope. Macbeth was warned to "beware Macduff", that Dunsinane would never be taken until "Birnam Wood came to high Dunsinane", and that he could only be killed by a man not of woman born by the witches, which he took to mean that he was invincible. However, [[spoiler:Macduff was born by Caesarian Section, thus being not born of woman, and Birnam Wood came to Dunsinane through soldiers carrying boughs from the trees of Birnam to Dunsinane to mask their numbers.]]

** [[Creator/{{Lopoddity}} The Pandoraverse]]: Chakra Blossom, after shaping up and abandoning his old manipulative and selfish ways, is the only one to catch on to the fact that Moondancer [[spoiler:was responsible from Midnight Abyss' death and is playing her grieving mothers for fools]]. Starlight thinks he's just throwing accusations at a dear family friend and throws him out of the house. When he was genuinely telling the truth and trying to help, his record as an extremely manipulative and untrustworthy stallion ended up ruining everything.



* The BigBad ''weaponizes'' it in FanFic/TheMeasureOfATitan. The OC David foster is completely honest about what he knows of his history and his ignorance of why people are after him, but things are arranged by the BigBad to make him look like TheMole to Raven, sowing dissent.

* Creator/SeanMalstrom accurately predicted the rise of the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} to first place in the seventh generation all the way back in 2006, when others were expecting the Wii to follow in the footsteps of [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube its predecessor]] in terms of commercial success. However, Malstrom hasn't exactly become famous for this thanks to his controversial opinions on other gaming-related subjects overshadowing everything else.

* No matter how many times Nathan tries to convince people on the Encyclopedia Dramatica forums that Magnum is really an insane troll, the trolls/[=EDiots=] always dismiss it as 'sperging' or 'BAAAWING'.
