* ''FanFic/VigilanteTendency'' practically runs on this. A series of events leads to the vigilante group known as the Peaceful Namimori Committee taking a vacation at Mafia Land. There, they get into conflict with the Difo Family, the most powerful crime family in Asia, who, believing them to be associates of the Yakuza family Momokyokai (which they technically are, seeing as they took over their base, converted them to vigilantism, and then made them a branch of their group), demands that they give them 50% of their profits as regular tribute lest they be wiped out, and hands them their financial information. Tsuna promptly gives said information to Shoichi, who financially cripples them within a week. Since Tsuna never gave out the name of the Peaceful Namimori Committee nor did he specify what their actual occupation was, this leads to rumors of a new, unknown power in Asia -- and assassins in Namimori.

** Iris has a secret involving Phoenix which she doesn't want him to find out. During the final case Phoenix comes to Hazakura where Iris lives and on the same day she receives a letter telling her to come to a certain place at certain time "unless she wants her secret to be exposed". Iris of course thought she was being blackmailed and the blackmailer threatens to tell aforementioned secret to Phoenix. As it turned out [[spoiler: it was actually a ''love letter''.]]
** Speaking of Iris when Phoenix met her for the first time he was rather shocked. As the player knows it was because [[spoiler: she looked exacly like his ex-girlfriend who should be in prison after she tried to kill him]]. Maya however, unaware of that fact, seeing Phoenix stunned after seeing beautiful girl thought she just witnessed LoveAtFirstSight.

* 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.]]

* People once believed tomatoes were poisonous, being related to deadly nightshade and ''actually'' making people who ate it seriously sick. Both of these were true. However, the true culprit was the ''lead plates'' most people ate the tomatoes off of; while lead plates aren't a generally good idea, the real problem was that tomatoes were acidic enough to ''dissolve'' the lead off the plates, assimilate it and transport it into human biology.

* Creator/FrancisEDec's entire worldview was [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness completely wrong]], but some things stand out. For example, he claimed that Polish Christmas tradition of ''kolęda'' -- children going from house to house dressed up as devils and angels and singing Christmas carols -- is actually a leftover from ancient (reality note: nonexistent) religion of Astrocism. This is especially jarring to someone who took part in ''kolędas''.

* A lesser known real-life example occurs when Atahualpa, the last Inca emperor, hears about the Europeans approaching the Inca capital of Cuzco. He notes that the Europeans have cooking pots (metal helmets for protection) over their heads. Atahualpa believed that anyone who wore cooking pots was crazy, which goes double if they didn't even use those cooking pots for preparing food!

* In the ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy,'' Grand Admiral Thrawn discovers that a Noghri commando named Khabarakh has suddenly returned to his homeworld, Honoghr, after being missing in action for about a month following a failed mission to kidnap Princess Leia on Kashyyyk, the Wookiee homeworld. Khabarakh maintains that he had used that month to meditate over his failure. Thrawn, still suspicious, has his ship thoroughly examined, and finds Wookiee hairs all over. He concludes, quite logically, that Khabarakh had in fact been held on Kashyyyk for the last month, and has him taken into custody on suspicion of treason. Unfortunately for Thrawn, the conclusion was wrong: Khabarakh's story was true, and the Wookiee hairs [[spoiler:were all from Chewbacca, who had been aboard the ship (and had helped with a bit of coverup sabotage to it)]]. This is one of the few times that [[MagnificentBastard Thrawn]] is shown to be fallible, and in fact this error eventually leads to his downfall, because had he known a bit more information, he might have realized that [[spoiler:there were Rebel spies on the planet. Specifically, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO--who eventually were able to expose the Empire's betrayal of the Noghri.]]

** Two more specific examples occur in the thirteenth book, ''A Rising Thunder.'' In one scene, Mesan antagonist Benjamin Detweiler is telling his father Albert everything Manticore and Haven have learned about them in the past book, including the fact they had [[spoiler:Haven's Secretary of State re-ignite the war]] several books ago. Albert's surprised because they actually ''didn't'' have anything to do with that one. They just helped it along when they realized it was occurring. Benjamin points out that the circumstantial evidence alongside their use of PuppeteerParasite nanotech to tie up loose ends supports their belief.

* All over the place in ''[[http://cartoon.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600095039 How I Learned to Love a Wild Horse]]'' in regards to [[WesternAnimation/TotallySpies WOOHP's]] conclusions concerning [[Anime/RanmaOneHalf Ranma Saotome]]. They believe he's the leader of a terrorist organization known as the Nerima Wrecking Crew and has come to America for some nefarious purpose, as opposed to trying to escape the shenanigans in Nerima. After getting to third base with him, Clover is convinced that Kodachi is Ranma's psychotic ex-girlfriend who made him go down on her but told him he sucked so she didn't have to return the favor. In reality, Ranma just experimented in his girl form. Of course, Ranma makes several false assumptions as well, partially due to thinking his violent UnwantedHarem, HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood, and terrible friends are the norm.

** Later, because they don't know Ranma and Ranko are the same person, Sam takes Ranko's slip ups while talking about Akane to mean she's a lesbian who had a thing for Akane but got violently rejected.
