* Music/FrankZappa: Happens during ''A Token Of My Extreme'' from ''Music/JoesGarage''
--> '''Joe''': "Are you telling me I should come out the closet now, Mr. Ron?"
--> '''L. Ron Hoover''': "No my son, you must go INTO THE CLOSET!"
--> '''Joe''': "What?"
--> '''L. Ron Hoover''': "And you will have..."
--> '''Joe''': "He?"
--> '''L. Ron Hoover''': "... a lot of fun!"



* Want to know why "What?" became [[StoneColdSteveAustin Stone Cold Steve Austin's]] main CatchPhrase during the Ruthless Aggression Era? It's because up until that point, there were many commentators in the WWE that would react to a particular, questionable statement a wrestler made during a promo with "what?"
** Of course, lord help us, since Austin introduced the phrase, we get to hear the audience go "What" every single time anyone does pauses during a promo...even today!



* A large number of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' fan-videos chop up speech lines from the game to give the characters appropriate dialogue for the situation at hand. The Engineer often has one of his taunts cut short to just "What?" due to the delivery making him come off as quite incredulous, where other classes' voice clips would just make them come off as angry. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fmiGMpkxi0 This video is just one example.]]
** And speaking of [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 TF2]], the ''Expiration Date'' short has Engineer switch from happy to terrifyingly angry with just this trope after hearing that [[spoiler:Soldier teleported bread.]]

* In ''[[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 5]]'' Duck Guy reacts this way when Steak Chef compares the body to a house.
-->''Steak Chef'': You see, the body is like a special house! With blood, hair, and organs in the different rooms. Oh look! There's Mr. Bladder in the basement! Ha ha!
-->''Duck Guy'': ...What?



** Phineas has this reaction in "Bully Bromance Breakup" when Baljeet announces his plan to climb a mountain without any inventions.
-->'''Baljeet:''' "No! This is something I have do by myself! That means no inventions!"
-->'''Phineas:''' "...What?"

* ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' Proves that this reaction can even come from a SilentProtagonist like Link. After smashing the Spider boss Arhmogohma three times with the Dominion Rod, the creature finally convulses and dies, bursting into smoke. Link gives a triumphant flourish of the Master Sword, [[note]] Which he didn't even use to kill the boss,[[note/]] only to gape in disbelief when the smoke clears to reveal the boss's true form. [[ClippedWingAngel A comparatively tiny and entirely non threatening spider.]]

* Since the protagonists of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' are only connected through [=IMs=], bouts of confusion are common. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003553 Example.]]
