* In ''Literature/ThaliasMusings'', Aphrodite's GenreSavvy blessing on the Pythian Games: [[spoiler:"To whichever two among the gods and goddesses here whom the Fates will choose, may you each meet your true love at the Pythian Games."]] [[http://thaliasmusingsnovels.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/1-5-let-the-games-begin/]] Thalia, being equally genre savvy, knows that if she or Apollo is chosen, [[spoiler:they won't end up together since they've already met.]]

* TheUndertaker uses this as an entrance at times. Many a wrestler has loudly proclaimed that there isn't a man ''alive'' who can defeat him, only to freeze in terror when the lights dim and the gong sounds and everyone knows ''The Dead Man'' is in the house.

** A seer said that Psyche's mysterious betrothed "is a monster whom neither gods or men can resist". She was not speaking ''literally''; Cupid is mostly human (except for his gorgeous angelic wings), attractive, and compassionate. He's a monster in the sense that he's the god of [[LoveHurts love]]. (As for the second part of the prophecy...she never said that gods or men would ''want'' to resist him in the first place, did she?)



* In Main/HinduMythology, Shiva specifically promised Kama that no one, not even the highest gods, would be immune to Kama's arrows of love. When Kama shoots ''Shiva'' with one, he was not pleased (though he later recognized that Kama had done nothing wrong, and apologized).

* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', Zero of all people uses this trope to create unnecessary violence in their Nonary Game with the rules. The goal, as announced over a loudspeaker, is to find an exit, a door with a 9 on it. [[spoiler:'''''A''''' door. It never says there is only one, and in fact there are two, but everyone assumes there's only one door 9 because there's just one of every other numbered door, 1 to 8. If the nine players had known this, there wouldn't have been so many murders because all nine of them could have escaped safely. But this is not the objective of the game.]]

* At one point in the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' series, [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] gets away with lying to Phoenix despite his Magatama which lets him physically see people keeping secrets from him using this method. Specifically, the client answers "No, I didn't kill anybody" when questioned. [[spoiler:While he didn't kill the victim, as he claimed, he did pay an assassin to do it.]] It's implied that this only worked because [[spoiler:the client was warped enough to consider there to be an honest, meaningful difference between the two, and so he didn't himself consciously hide anything from Phoenix. ]]

** In the third game, Godot is introduced as yet another prosecutor Phoenix has to deal with who is said to have legendary skill and has never lost a case.
--->'''Judge:''' Yes, your reputation precedes you. What kind of cases have you dealt with so far?\\
'''Godot:''' Ha...! None.\\
'''Judge:''' What did you say...?\\
'''Godot:''' I've never prosecuted a case before.\\
'''Judge:''' N-Never? But you said you've never lost before.\\
'''Godot:''' ...Exactly. I've never lost. I've never won before either.

* Even the gods fall for this one occasionally. In Myth/NorseMythology, Loki, the God of Mischief, made a bet with the dwarf Brokk; the bet was for his head, which at the time meant "the sum that your head is worth" (i.e. to ransom himself). When he lost, it turned out that Brokk wanted his head -- literally -- due to his cheating over the wager, but still losing. Loki, being who he is, still managed to turn the tables, however, by pulling some Exact Words right back: "My ''head'' may be yours, but my ''neck'' is not." Hence, Brokk couldn't decapitate him to "claim his prize" because they couldn't manage to define which part of Loki was his head and which was his neck. Brokk still got the last word, however, and sewed Loki's mouth shut to keep him from performing any more trickery, hence one of his nicknames, Loki Scar-lip.
