* {{Toku}} example: In ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'', the main objects of AppliedPhlebotinum are [[{{Magitek}} cell phones that extend into magic wands]]. [[TheHero Kai]] drops his into a spring while sparring with [[TheObiWan Hikaru]]. The Goddess of the Mini-Spring lets him play Honest Phone, offering a silver version of his phone or a golden version of his mentor's. He's ''not'' honest and takes the gold one, and it works great for a time... until a misspoken spell turns him into a giant spider monster, and then the phone stops working. He can't change back until he learns his lesson.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' Steel Ball Run, giving a dishonest answer will result in death via [[WhenTreesAttack disembowelment]]. Furthermore, not using up your ''gifts'' will cause you to [[FateWorseThanDeath become a part of a massive tree]] [[spoiler: that gave you the stuff in the first place!]]

** Often talking to a villager will have them remark "I found this [insert item here]. Is it yours?" However sometimes it's this trope (they're testing you) or they honestly ''did'' find it laying around and don't know whether or not you actually did lose it. There's no way of knowing if lying or telling the truth is how you get the item; it's merely a gamble.

* [[ImageBooru Danbooru]] has [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post?tags=honest_axe a tag for parodies of this]]. As expected of the site, it's somewhat NotSafeForWork and roughly half ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''.

** Also in [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Fairy_of_the_Spring Fairy of the Spring]]. Only it's a gold or silver "Wicked Breaking Flamberge - Baou" instead of axes.

* Anime/NurseWitchKomugi: After her apparent CharacterDeath in her own show, Komugi herself was offered one of three magic syringes that might bring her back -- ''maybe''. Gold syringe, silver syringe... dangerous syringe. Guess which one she picked. It's a good thing, too; The dangerous syringe not only brought her back to life, but elevated her into her SuperMode. This is likely a reference to ''Anime/TheSoulTaker'', the anime in which her character was originally developed as a psychotic nurse with a fetish for giant syringes.

* Spoofed in the "Aesop's Fables that are Really Terrifying" skit in ''Anime/OsomatsuSan''. A fisherman (Jyuushimatsu) drops his pole into the water, and a water spirit (really Choromatsu) gives him the choice of choosing between bronze and jelly statues of Asura in return. For denying both, the fisherman receives a small mustachioed man as a family heirloom.

** And again in the H manga ''Glitter Dolls'' where a virgin loser is running home excitedly with his new love doll, only to trip and drop it into the river. The river spirit predictably appears, offers him the gold love doll or the silver love doll, then dumps both on him despite his protestations that he just wants his Haruka-chan doll back. He takes them back home, despite considering them useless because they're too shiny, only for them to come to life as the aggressive blonde Kogane and the {{Moe}} black-haired Shirogane after midnight and then [[CoitusEnsues obvious hentai manga events unfold]]. In the 2nd chapter his JerkAss neighbour hears about it, makes a crude love doll and throws it into the river, then lies to the river spirit about dropping a pair of gold and silver love dolls in. The angry spirit strikes him with a BoltOfDivineRetribution then, somewhat contrary to the normal tale, punishes him by giving him "the black love doll" Kurogane, a violent, bossy dominatrix-type who takes over his house, [[MurderousThighs chokes him unconscious with her thighs]], then goes next door to give some more loving to the first guy again anyway.



* ''KinNoKanojoGinNoKanojo'' uses this for the premise; a boy knocks his love interest into a magic pond, and the spirit of the pond reappears with a golden haired girl and a silver haired girl. After he honestly says it was neither, the spirit gives him both. And each of the two girls has a different aspect of the original's personality.
