* A story in the Hebrew Torah says that when Solomon became King of Israel, God appeared and offered to grant him a blessing: immense wealth or destruction of his enemies. Solomon instead asked to be blessed with wisdom so he would be a good ruler. God granted him wisdom, and wealth, and destruction of his enemies.

* {{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}}''.

* 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.
