* The {{Jerkass}} practice of "negging." The idea is to shake the confidence of the negee (usually a woman one wants to pursue sex and/or a relationship with) enough to get her to seek his validation and approval. This can also be done with advertising: play on the potential consumer's insecurities (about their looks or status or whatever else)...and imply that your product will make everything better.

* There is a rare [[{{Inverted}} inversion]] of the trope in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV''. Gigi's, a NPC in the Goldsmith's Guild, initial criticism of the player's work ("Not fit to make a chamberpot" "an affront to the gods themselves") is so ridiculously over-the-top that "I've seen worse" is treated as high praise.

* In ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', Doctor Frank-N-Further asks his servants on their opinion of Rocky, his latest creation. While Riff Raff and Magenta offer lavish praise, Columbia enthusiastically says "He's okay!" The doctor doesn't appreciate that.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRLzrxnNwuI this]] ''Series/MrShow'' sketch, the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) attempts to bolster their public image with an ad campaign reminding the public that they're not serial killers. It wins the award for Best Improved Image at the Awards for Advertising American Ads. The audience gets so disgusted with the pro-NAMBLA PSA that even a member of NAMBLA takes offense.

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': Rei resorts to this to critique a drawing of her. It works because the artist is only three.
-->"How you like it?" she eventually ended Rei's wondering.\\
Taken aback, the teen didn't answer immediately. Being honest was likely to hurt the girl's feelings, and Rei didn't want that. But wouldn't she also do the same by lying to her?\\
"The... shade of blue is well chosen," she eventually settled for.
