* Seiji's friend from ''Manga/MidoriDays'' spreads stories about how tough he is but it sometimes gets out of control. He explains Seiji's bandaged hand (hiding Midori) because he smashed it on a car that almost hit him.
* Kitano from ''Manga/AngelDensetsu'' is made of this. His fearsome appearance lead people to assume all sorts of things about him that turn him into an inhuman monster.

** Stringer Bell hears that two of his men have spotted stick-up man Omar, and gives the okay for them to attack despite it being Sunday (the "truce" day). What he doesn't know is that not only is it Sunday, but Omar is taking his grandmother home from church. Both Omar and his grandmother narrowly escape, but Stringer's partner Avon mentions stories about their people shooting her and urinating on her church hat.
** String and Omar's deaths become street legend. String is played up as a coward (he was DefiantToTheEnd) and Omar is supposedly killed in A RoaringRampageOfRevenge (he was shot in the back while buying cigarettes).

** String and Omar's deaths also become street legend. String is played up as Marlo Stanfield's crew (falsely) take credit for String's death and claim he was a coward who desperately tried to bribe them into sparing him, (he was DefiantToTheEnd) and Omar is supposedly killed in A RoaringRampageOfRevenge (he an epic LastStand against a whole group of heavily armed killers, or even killed by the police who then made it look like Omar was killed by his fellow criminals. (He was shot in the back by a kid who used to idolize him while buying cigarettes).

* In "The Rumor" from ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'', Yente brings the news that Perchik, who danced with Tevye's daughter Hodel, has been arrested in Kiev. The rumor spreads, and each time a different person is said to have been arrested. By the time the rumor comes full circle, this is what it has become: "Golde's been arrested, and Hodel's gone to Kiev. Motel studies dancing, and Tevye's acting strange. Shpritze has the measles, and Bielke has the mumps."

* Both the tree people and cave dwellers in the ''Literature/GreenSkyTrilogy'' are inclined to this. With no written media to speak of, nearly all communication is by word of mouth. Raamo knows himself to be a plain person, who with his friends makes some unusual discoveries -- the next thing he knows his kid sister is a HolyChild and he's The One Who Was Foretold In Prophecy...

Added DiffLines:

* WordOfGod said Kovu wouldn't appear in ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' movie or show. This got twisted to "Kovu's dead," until it was made clear ''The Lion Guard'' takes place before Kiara meets Kovu, so he has no reason to be in it and is alive, just off screen.
