* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': At the very start of the series, when Edward and Alphonse are battling the fake priest Cornello, Edward is trapped but has a huge microphone hidden as Cornello explains how he is manipulating the populace and so on.
** And then [[ShaggyDogStory it's rendered moot by the Homunculi]].
** The Abridged series made this incredibly amusing.
--->'''Edward:''' Then tell me all the bad things you've done...\\
'''Cornello:''' [[KickTheDog I once kicked a small child and stole candy from a puppy.]]\\
'''Edward:''' That's right... keep em coming...\\
'''Cornello:''' [[spoiler:I'm also making these worthless townfolk believe in a fake god so I can turn them into my fearless army and take over the country with the Philosopher's Stone!]]\\
'''Edward:''' Ha Ha! You've just been caught! This whole conversation was live on the radio.\\
'''Cornello:''' Not only that, but I once took part in a devil's three way with a nun. A nun!\\
'''Edward:''' Uh, you can stop...\\
'''Cornello:''' [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking I also wear a monocle! And a top hat!]]\\
'''Edward:''' I see you're gonna keep going...\\
'''Cornello:''' I was once even the CEO of Fox Entertainment, and it was I who canceled such great shows as ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''! * evil laugh* Ah ha... I'm evil...
