* His goods may be a quite a bit more high dollar than your average Honest John, but ''Film/IronMan 2'''s Justin Hammer certainly has the attitude down pat as well as the [[TheAllegedCar cluster of malfunctions]], if the videos from the Senate Briefing at the beginning are any good sign.

**Of course, this turns itself around by the time of ''Series/LukeCage2016'', as his company has pioneered the Judas bullet, the only thing capable of penetrating Luke Cage's impenetrable skin, and even manages to bulk-sell it to the NYPD.

Added DiffLines:

* Turk Barrett in ''Series/Daredevil2015'' is an illegal arms dealer. He sells guns that don't work. In "Rabbit in a Snowstorm," the gun he sells to one of Fisk's assassins fails to live up to his promise that they don't jam (the buyer had said he preferred revolvers for this very reason). In the Season 2 premiere, Matt interrupts Turk while he's trying to sell a bunch of shotguns to potential costumers, overly praising them, only to then admit to Matt they couldn't even kill a rabbit.

* Subverted in ''Franchise/DarkSouls'', ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' and ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls''. Trusty Patches has a laugh almost as obnoxious as his huge nose and has a habit of kicking people off cliffs, making him look like this trope, but all of his goods are the real deal, albeit exorbitantly priced. He'll even throw in some free advice on who is and isn't a psychopath, if you can believe a man who has to put "Trusty" in his name.

* Similarly, in the Disney ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'', when Hercules lands in Thebes, a man appears, opens his vest, and says "Wanna buy a sundial?" Of course, Hades himself would be this trope if his deals involved actual money. James Woods even modeled Hades after a used car salesman.

* Mr. Wormwood in Creator/RoaldDahl's ''Literature/{{Matilda}}''. The tinkering with the cars differs between the book and movie. Maybe because the books is several decades older, and the Honest Johns had to update their methods meanwhile.
