* ''Film/TheBrothersGrimm''. Since the brothers are skilled at faking monster attacks for their protection racket, naturally they think the events on this small town are caused by another hoaxster like themselves.

* In ''Film/TheWolfman2010'', Lawrence is initially skeptical to being a werewolf and towards werewolves in general, until, you know, he actually '''become''' one. Played a little more straight with [[spoiler:Aberline, upon realizing he's been bitten]].

Inspired by the protagonist of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow and in particular Ichabod Crane's portrayal in Tim Burton's ''Film/SleepyHollow'', this state is what results when mundane presuppositions come crashing against the supernatural reality, and the character in question just can't handle it.

* While it's up to the player to decide precisely how to react, this is conveyed pretty well in ''VideoGame/{{Nethergate}}'' when you find out just what's living in the caves you're investigating. It's subverted later on, though--facing an assault by hordes of ghosts, you shrug it off through sheer force of {{Badass}}.

* The ill-fated trio featured in the "Kitchen" VHS tape in the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'' demo. They visit an old plantation house that was mysteriously abandoned in order to film an episode of their show. Their financier is the most skeptical, just treating the expedition as another day at the office until [[spoiler:they get separated from the host of the show and when they find him, he has been brutally killed by...something]].

* Present in quite a few works in TheSlenderManMythos: especially in later blogs, where people [[WrongGenreSavvy start assuming that Slendy's just an urban legend]], and his appearance in their lives is problematic. For particular examples, see ''Blog/SeekingTruth'' and ''WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID''.

This ends when he actually SEES the monster -- and finds that it is just as advertized, and worse. He sees the eerie, glowing intelligence in its eyes, smells the rotten meat on its breath, gets smacked around a bit, but survives, running back to safety to hide under the bed and refusing to come out because it's real ''it's real'' OH MY GOD ''IT'S REAL''... even though that's what everyone's been telling him up till now.
