* ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman'': Judge Hopkins had one of these, and this was what got himself killed. {{Pun}} aside, he believed [[spoiler:Agatha]] to be a WickedWitch without noticing she was innocent. {{Justified}} because he was scared of her [[ISeeDeadPeople powers to talk to the dead]]. As such, this is {{Averted}} after he had a HeelRealization.

* A lot of the tragedy in ''Anime/CodeGeass'''s second season comes from ''a lot'' of this. Why anyone would trust [[DevilInPlainSight Schneizel]] is a question that is never properly answered. This lack of good judgement bites everyone in the ass, ''horribly'' [[spoiler: as this ends up being the incident that sends AntiHero Lelouch off the deep end after a TraumaCongaLine and makes him think up the [[ZeroApprovalGambit Zero]] [[ThanatosGambit Requeim]] as the only way to build a better world.]]
** A specific, recurring example from all the way back in season 1 is [[AcePilot Suzaku]], who takes IdiotHero to new levels by siding with the ''conquering empire'' that took over his country and reduced all its citizens to second-class citizens ''at best'' and is run by a SocialDarwinist and flat out ''racist'' philosophy, and yet insists on being an InternalReformist when an "Eleven" like him has no real chance of doing so. [[spoiler: Of course, it's implied this is mostly a lie to conceal his [[DeathSeeker real motive]] for becoming a soldier.]] At the same time, he manages to be the only one consistently able to see through [[ConsummateLiar Lelouch]].

** Dexter is normally one of few characters who avertes this trope but in season 4 he is way too willing to trust people like Trinity if he thinks he could learn something about coping from them.

* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'': Dexter, while constantly acknowledges that he's a monster, is way too willing to trust people like Trinity if he thinks he could learn something about coping from them.

** Most characters on the show except Doakes and the title character. And this is not a good thing, considering their job as detectives in the Police Department. Dexter seems much more competent than them and actively sabotages police investigations when he finds out the killer. They don't even realize
that he's a monster, SerialKiller is working with them for the police. Very few people see Dexter for who he really is, including his girlfriend (later wife) who sees him as the perfect man.

** Mocked heavily in Just A Pancake's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW0wjcS7-00 recaps of the series]], where every single time someone inexplicably believes in an ObviouslyEvil person's lies or walks right into a trap, they declare "OKAY I BELIEVE YOU." It happens a ''[[IdiotPlot lot.]]''

** Delphine believes that the Greybeards would rather have [[the Dragonborn]] meditate with them up on High Hrothgar, instead of letting them save the world. While she may have a point about the Greybeards only using their powers to worship the gods rather than solve worldly affairs, she's completely wrong about them wanting to impede the Dragonborn's destiny; Arngeir will generally allow the Dragonborn to do as they please, and will actively help them in their quest, albeit reluctantly on certain occasions. And if the Dragonborn offers to follow the Greybeards' pacifistic, non-violent philosophy, Arngeir will gently rebuke them, pointing out that they have their power for a different reason than the Greybeards do.

* Jarl Laila Law-Giver of [[WretchedHive Riften]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. She wants to clean up Riften's streets and trusts her good friend [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Maven Black-Briar]], the crime queenpin of Riften who has both the ThievesGuild and the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] in her pocket, to help her in this endeavor. Literally everybody in Riften except the Jarl knows about Maven's corruption, and she doesn't realize it herself until Maven steals her position right out from under her if the [[TheEmpire Imperials]] gain control of the city, and even then she thinks that Maven revealed herself to be a spineless moronic wimp who sold out to the empire and will lose control in about a year, which is the ''exact opposite'' of what Maven is practically boasting she actually is!

* Kaito from ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' may not have ''completely'' trusted his father, Dr. Faker, but the fact that he believed him at all or that any of what he was telling him was the truth was likely Kaito's biggest fault.
