* In the middle of the first ''Film/{{Terminator}}'' film, Sarah Connor seems happy to accept the psychologist's explanation that Kyle Reese is a paranoid schizophrenic, and the KillerRobot is just on PCP. By the beginning of the second film, she's locked up in a mental asylum for insisting that Reese's story about the impending apocalypse is true.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Lisa discovers that town founder Jebediah Springfield was secretly a villainous pirate. No one believes her story except Homer, who is GenreSavvy enough to know Lisa tends to make the right assumptions on these things. They fail to convince anyone else and Homer is stripped of his role in the town parade as punishment. [[spoiler:Subverted when Lisa realises that the museum curator covered it up (he relents, but Lisa decides that the lie inspires the town and leaves things be).]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' episode "It Came from Beneath the Sea Duck", Kit is chewed out by Rebecca for taking Molly outside the apartment while babysitting (in reality this was for a load of convoluted reasons). Baloo is GenreSavvy enough to suggest letting Kit explain what happened, however Rebecca just assumes that Kit learned his irresponsible behaviour from him and shushes him too.

Maybe the PoliceAreUseless for everyone, perhaps the person you've convince can't convince their bosses or it might just be that your new confidant already has a reputation for believing crazy things. Par for the course if an ExtraStrengthMasquerade is involved. Bonus points if a scene where they try to convince someone to believe them parallels one they had with the heroes. Either way, they've put their name on the line but ended up [[JustForPun cosigning your discredit card]].

* For the first half of ''Film/{{Jaws}}''. only Chief Brody and Matt Hooper are convinced that a great white shark is still alive and well, waiting to eat any unsuspecting swimmers. It isn't until the shark kills for the ''third'' recorded time that the town and specifically Mayor Vaughn finally agree to take any measures to kill the shark.
** Though, in the town's defense, several fishermen had happened to catch a tiger shark just two days prior, which many believed to be the original shark.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Doug}}'s First Movie'': Doug and Skeeter tell the Mayor about the swamp creature they found, but she can't publicly declare its existence without backlash. They try, but an attempt to capture the beast by a CorruptCorporateExecutive impedes this.
