** When professor Goodwich first heard [[GenkiGirl Nora]] and [[TheQuietOne Ren]] were partners, she assumed they'd be a terrible match because they're so starkly different. Their differences are actually the reason [[OppositesAttract they have been friends since childhood]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' "Who Shot Mr. Burns? Part 2", the police accuse and arrest Homer for the shooting due to a number of evidence that seemingly points to him; an eyelash with Simpson DNA on the suit Burns was wearing when he got shot, Burns waking up from his coma shouting "Homer Simpson!", and most damaging, the gun that was used to shoot burns not only found in the family's car, but also has Homer's fingerprints! [[spoiler: The eyelash came from Maggie, who was left in the car. Burns tried to steal her candy, and during the struggle, his gun fell out of its holder, firing and shooting him. Homer got his fingerprints on it while feeling around for an ice cream cone he dropped. Oh, and Burns was saying "Homer Simpsons" due to brain damage- it was ALL he could say.]]

* In ''[[FanFic/Internship Deputy]]'' Taylor correctly deduces that Amy is gay and then ''incorrectly'' deduces Carol is a homophobe who mistakenly thinks Taylor is trying to seduce Amy. Amy finds this very amusing as Carol actually thinks Taylor will seduce Amy into ''villainy''.

** Much later Danny, based on a conversation with Carol, comes to a very similar conclusion as Taylor.

** Later, Jedi Master Fay wonders if Harry left so abruptly after saving her life because he not only didn't expect a reward but didn't want any recognition for it. To her dismay, Harry reveals that the event in question was [[ButForMeItWasTuesday so unmemorable that he doesn't even recall saving her]] until she mentions it was on a volcanic planet and that's only because he spent several hours fishing a gold coin out of a lava flow.

* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''):
** Tyn is perfectly reasonable in believing that Shallan is just using the identity of a conveniently housebound, never-seen noblewoman as her cover and still needs a [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism dose of reality]] as to [[DirtyBusiness doing what needs]] [[IDidWhatIHadToDo to be done]]. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for her, she's [[BrokenBird wrong on]] [[SelfMadeOrphan the first count.]]]]
** The book is pretty much full of this. Characters are constantly making assumptions about each other, their abilities, their religions, and more, that seem reasonable but are based on incomplete or incorrect information. Among the most amusing incidents comes when Shallan and Kaladin are [[spoiler: falling into the chasms together]]. They both use their abilities to protect them, but being unaware of the extent of their abilities or each other's abilities, they both assume they're responsible for their survival.

* In ''Fanfic/BlackkatsReverse'', an extrapolating Hiruzen assumes that Uzumaki Kurama is Naruto's maternal uncle by way of Kumo, having fled the Cloud for Uzushio right before its destruction. [[SureLetsGoWithThat Kurama does his best to maintain the illusion, as he fears the consequences if it were known he's actually a time-travelling Tailed Beast stuck in a human body.]]
** [[spoiler: Being familiar with the Kyuubi's chakra, Kushina isn't fooled by her "brother's" act, but thinks him an embodiment of the beast's unsealed chakra.]]

* At the beginning of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', it is perfectly logical for Baron Wulfenbach and his son Gilgamesh to conclude that a young soldier is the Spark responsible for a rampaging clank, rather than the girl he was found with, because you can't hide "the Spark". The girl, Agatha Clay, studies at the local university under Dr. Beetle: if she were a Spark, all her professors would know. The soldier, Moloch von Zinzer, only just came into town. What the Baron and Gil don't know is that you ''can'' hide "the Spark": Agatha had been wearing a device that does exactly that. Of course, since Klaus leaves early, he misses the big clue of the Clank going off to "protect" Agatha, leading Gil to do the sensible thing -- check their hands, revealing that the soldier's hands are clean... but Agatha's has grease and oil on them from building the clank. Which leads Gil to come to the conclusion that Agatha is breaking through ''now'' due to the stress in her life. Once again, somewhat wrong: she broke through when she was ''five'', and the same necklace that had a PowerLimiter.

* The entire plot of ''Film/HotFuzz'' is this. Nicholas Angel examines the evidence he has uncovered and deduces that a string of murders that has been going on in town is all part of a master scheme involving real estate prices. The truth is much sillier. [[spoiler:Each of the murder victims were actually going to make the town appear bad in the annual contest for best town, and the current Mayor is a little bit obsessed with winning every year due to a promise to his dead wife. The people were killed for having an annoying laugh, being a bad actor, making typos in a newspaper, having an ugly house, and planning to move away, specifically. Funnily enough all of these details are offhandedly mentioned by Nick and Danny while brainstorming but neither ever considers they'd be motivation for murder.]]

[[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Percy]] is actually a very modern demigod, being born only two years before the Fourth Grail War and invoked in his adult form only because of the Throne of Heroes' arcane working's ability to pull a hero from the future.
