* ''Series/LukeCage2016'': Marvel's Netflix universe
**''Series/Daredevil2015'': Matt Murdock invents these sorts of cover stories to explain any visible injuries that show up on his face as a result of his fights as Daredevil.
***In "Rabbit in a Snowstorm," he shows up at the office sporting a bruise over his right eye from his fight with the Russians the night before, and claims to Foggy and Karen that he wasn't looking and walked into a wall. Foggy and Karen suggest he get a seeing-eye dog.
***In "The Path of the Righteous", Matt is laid up in his apartment, still recovering from being sliced open by Nobu and then beaten up by Wilson Fisk. Although Foggy is mad at finding that Matt has been lying to him for years about his secret life, [[ThickerThanWater he still covers for him]] by claiming to Karen that Matt got into a car accident.
When she visits him, he clarifies that he was hit by a Japanese car, allowing him to tell her a half-truth about what really happened. Even though Matt's lying about the cause of his injuries, Karen still correctly thinks that Fisk had tried to have him killed.
***By "Bang", the first episode in season 2, Foggy is claiming to Karen that Matt has a drinking problem to explain his constant injuries. In the next episode, "Dogs to a Gunfight," while Matt is recuperating from getting shot by the Punisher, Karen drops by to fill him in on the plea deal for Grotto and makes clear that she doesn't really buy Foggy's cover stories:
--->'''Karen Page:''' Sometimes I worry about you a little too much.
--->'''Matt Murdock:''' I appreciate it. There's no need to worry.
--->'''Karen Page:''' Yeah, you know that doesn't help, right? You denying that there's anything wrong?
--->'''Matt Murdock:''' Karen-
--->'''Karen Page:''' No, how many times can I hear that you "fell down the stairs" or you "walked into a door"?
--->'''Matt Murdock:''' Well, you know I'm blind-
--->'''Karen Page:''' And you know that I'm not an idiot. ''[beat]'' Okay, um, let's say this: when or if you ever feel like you can tell me what's going on with you, I promise that I'm here. Is that a deal?

For the lethal version, see TheCoronerDothProtestTooMuch. If he ''really did'' cut himself shaving, ThereWillBeToiletPaper. Not to be confused with DangerouslyCloseShave, which is about the barber cutting ''other'' people.
