* ''CyranoDeBergerac'': InUniverse: Cyrano (a BrokenAce [[TheGrotesque with an enormous nose]]) [[ShoutOut invokes two famous historical romances (Cesar and Cleopatra, Tito and Berenice)]] and compares himself to the Cesar and Tito to justify why he cannot win the beautiful Roxane’s love. The point is that Cesar and Tito were loved not because they were fair, but they were highly charismatic leaders (like Cyrano himself, as his best friend Le Bret lampshades). Given that Cyrano is a BrokenAce and certainly this point would be obvious to him, this shows us how talking about love he will always deceive himself.

* Yellow is prone to moments like this in the [[Advertising/MAndMs M&M's]] advertisements. In one instance, he, Red, and several people are held up at a convenience store and their captor threatens to eat one of his hostages. Yellow automatically assumes he's intending to eat one of the humans. There's also the following exchange, which also doubles as an ActorAllusion considering that Yellow is voiced by ''Series/LawAndOrder'' semi-regular J.K. Simmons.

* A commercial for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWY3kkGpDbs&feature=trueview-instream Heineken Light Beer]] has NeilPatrickHarris try to drink the bottle of beer during the commercial. They explain to him that he is not allowed to drink the beer during the commercial; he keeps up trying to come up with ways to get around the restrictions, all of which are comically missing the point that no one is allowed to drink any sort of alcoholic beverages during American commercials.

* This is a stock-in-trade trope of ''Wilbur'', a children's series about a group of [[FunnyAnimal anthropomorphic]] barnyard friends who learn lessons from books. The character in question will sometimes miss the point of the story in question, often in a comical manner that at times could almost qualify as a SpoofAesop. This will force another reading of the story. In the event that the character doesn't miss the point, there'll be some other reason for the story being re-read, such as another character needing to learn the lesson.

* During his Impact Championship Wrestling debut, Wrestling/YoshihiroTajiri yelled "Shut The Fuck Up!" at the referee admonishing him for putting them rookie Wrestling/LowKi in an illegal hold, shocking everyone from the ref, to the commentators to the fans in attendance. [[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish Nobody knew Tajiri could speak English!]]

* Wrestling/CMPunk's reason for not joining the walkout on Wrestling/TripleH on Monday Night Raw had to due with the fact Punk left the company before ''because his contract was up'', and was tired of trying to change the company, arguing the 'hippie barbeque' was a pussy move if the participants actually wanted ''change''.
* After being told by a referee that stabbing [[Wrestling/{{Ivelisse|Velez}} The SHINE Champion]] with a fork was against the rules, Madison Eagles had to be told the same about knives.[[/folder]]

* To show he could do "[[InsistentTerminology characters]]", Wrestling/ScottHall did an imitation of ''Film/ScarFace''. Wrestling/VinceMcMahon thought it was an original concept that just needed some tweaking.
