* Used a lot on ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia''. The gang likes to pull this trope on ButtMonkey Sweet Dee.

* Another good natured example occurs in ''BabylonFive''. Commander Ivanova appropriates an extemely obvious solution to a problem that she missed and Dr. Franklin suggested (they need a strong power source, and the planet they orbit houses an immensly powerful machine controlled by an ally), but she is clearly embarrassed that she could miss it, and Franklin is playing along to make her feel better. * While he doesn't say this exactly, Archie of ''AllInTheFamily'' lives up to the spirit of this trope in ''Archie Eats and Runs'' when Mike suggests they check to see if Edith served poison mushrooms for dinner, only to immediately have Archie dismiss it and then repeat the idea verbatim to Edith not a second later.

* In ''[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh Pooh's Heffalump Movie]]'', Roo proposes the "expotition" to capture a heffalump. Rabbit agrees that it's a great idea, takes credit for it, then bans Roo from going because it's too dangerous for little kid like him. -->'''Rabbit''': Oh, yes, the first heffalump expedition in history. Splendid idea. Glad I thought of it.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Mr. Conklin uses this trope from time-to-time, usually at Connie's expense. However, being a DeadPanSnarker, Connie doesn't let this go without remark.

* This trope is ''WesternAnimation/CaptainFlamingo'''s entire "superpower" in a nutshell. He ''thinks'' he has a SpiderSense-like power in the form of a voice in his head that tells him the best course of action, when it's really just his best friend/sidekick giving him suggestions. He's either too deep in thought, too arrogant, or just too stupid to realize the suggestions are coming from her. Meanwhile, ''she'' thinks he knows the suggestions are from her, and she has a crush on him, so she's quite flattered to be referred to as his superpower. Of course, she can't take ''all'' the credit. He usually badly misinterprets her suggestions and does something totally different, which ends up causing some Rube Goldberg style chain of events that works out perfectly for him by sheer dumb luck.

* A months-long plotline in ''ForBetterOrForWorse'' revolved around Elly trying to save the local theatre. Eventually, she gave up and took her young son Michael along to pack everything away. Michael, amazed by all the costumes, proclaims they could throw the biggest Halloween party ever. Elly immediately hijacks the idea and helps organize a big celebration, inviting the local officials for a big shin-dig... only for adults, no children allowed. When one of those officials then declares the theatre a local icon and saves it, he proclaims "[[BlatantLies I've been lobbying for this for months!]]", leaving Elly gobsmacked and [[HypocriticalHumor shocked that somebody would take credit for]] ''[[HypocriticalHumor her]]'' [[HypocriticalHumor idea]].

* {{Invoked}} in an episode of ''[[{{Blackadder}} Blackadder the Third]]''. The Prince refuses to sponsor Dr. Samuel Johnson's Dictionary and insults the man on the way out, but Edmund promises Johnson he can change the Prince's mind in a few minutes. He does so by telling the Prince that pretending to hate the Dictionary while actually loving it was a brilliant joke, which causes him to instantly adopt this attitude (the entire episode is predicated on the Prince's desire to convince people that he was witty and sophisticated).

* On ''WesternAnimation/WallyKazam'', Bobgoblin does this to Hattie several times in "The Explorers Club" when she's part of his club. She gets tired of this and his bossing her around, but doesn't quit simply because she wants to find out what will happen as far as the "chickephant" animal they've been chasing.
