* In ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration,'' Q does these excessively in order to troll Picard. A particularly shameless example was in the series finale, when he agreed to help Picard find a way out of his predicament by unhelpfully answering a series of yes or no questions. Turned around slightly in that, this being a battle of wits, Picard does manage to ask a few unexpected ones and gleam ''some'' useful facts out of it.

-->'''Daniel''': That is so amazingly unhelpful...] ** In at least one case there's a good reason for it: [[spoiler:"Oma" is actually Repli-Carter trying to pick Daniel's brain; she doesn't understand any of the stuff herself, and she's really looking for Daniel to provide her an explanation.]]

** He's far from the only one, although the ambassadors usually only resort to this when they need to rather than as a habit. -->'''Ta'Lon''': That was a stirring reply, Citizen G'Kar. Unfortunately, while all answers are replies, ''not all replies are answers''.

Doesn't quite fit
* When Grandpa Joe asks Willy Wonka how his Great Glass Elevator can fly and hover in ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', Mr. Wonka only says that it's "Sugar power! One million sugar power!" The [[Literature/CharlieAndTheGreatGlassElevator sequel]] has him saying that it's "skyhooks" instead, but that's more along the lines of VoodooShark (one end is attached to the elevator, the other to...?).
