** By Season 7, Cersei Lannister. '''Oh so much'''. By this point she may be Queen of the Seven Kingdoms but she has effectively killed the Lannister dynasty and alienated ''literally everyone else'' on the continent, and Daenarys' superior forces are pouring in to bring her down. Only by Jaime's martial brilliance do the Lannisters manage to win a few battles, but even he realises they're fighting an unwinnable war. She doesn't listen to him. [[spoiler:Later she dismisses the threat posed by the Night King despite seeing a zombie with her own eyes, and seems insistent that she can still win the war; just because she correctly guesses that Daenarys dragons are killable, she believes that she can destroy both Daenarys' and the Night King's forces just by hiring enough mercenaries, this despite her scorpion ballista failed to critically injure Drogon one bit, let alone kill him, and the Night King possesses means to kill Daenarys' dragons very easily. She pretty much doesn't care if Westeros is ravaged and destroyed by the armies of the dead, as long as she still gets to sit on the throne.]]

** The Iron Bull of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' shows this off in greater detail. He considers all warriors men, as long as they're suited up. Thus his Lieutenant Krem, a trangender man, always qualifies as male in his eyes while Bull only classes Cassandra, a cisgender woman, as male when she wears armor. This is because the Qunari can accept transgender individuals as long as that individual still conforms to gender roles. Similarly, while he's terrified of spirits and demons Cole is okay because "you may be a weird squirrely kid, but you're my weird squirrely kid."
** Sera of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' takes this to an even more baffling degree than many Qunari. She fights for the "common people" however she strictly defines "common people" as "non-noble, non-mage humans or surface dwarves." The Dalish? They weird common humans out so they must deserve what they get. City elves? Deserve what they get for being too "elfy." Mages? Their power scares other people so they deserve to be locked up in the Circle system. Any amount of oppression faced by any group she does not like is that group's own fault and any part of the world that does not fit her worldview is "stupid." She will use any number of fallacies to argue her points and does ''not'' like being disagreed with, even if it's to offer a third option to a seemingly black and white question. She gets a little better in the epilogue DLC ''Trespasser'' and undergoes a bit of character development there.

* Played for laughs in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/10984500/chapters/24462450 How to Catch a Ladybug]]'', where Lila, upon discovering that Marinette is Ladybug, convinces herself she's an evil liar with an impressive facade of niceness that comes from a broken house with incredibly strict parents, and desperately tries to fit the mounting evidence of the contrary in her view just as she's starting to be drawn in by Marinette's genuine niceness.

The poster child for many other tropes: BeliefMakesYouStupid, the InspectorJavert, the KnightTemplar, the LawfulStupid. Not to be confused with the TheSparkOfGenius or the RealityWarper (who literally ''can'' reject and replace reality) although it is possible to combine this trope with either of the others; AGodAmI is usually the result. Also, if the reality is [[LotusEaterMachine fake]] [[{{Masquerade}} to]] [[DyingDream begin with]], rejecting it may be a right and necessary step to awaken.

*** Interestingly enough, this means Touma's power is to [[InvertedTrope ASSERT reality]]. It is even [[{{Lampshade}} lampshaded]] as he calls his ability Imagine Breaker and his catchphrase before battle is "I will shatter that illusion of yours".

* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', Senator Arnos would be a great commander except for two things: [[BadBoss he's willing to sacrifice any number of troops to further his own career]] and he rejects ''anything'' that doesn't fit into how he sees the world. There's a new enemy out there, dangerous enough to completely chew up a Marat and an Aleran force and whose sole motivation is [[HordeOfAlienLocusts killing everything alive that's not it]]? Just lies. Marat are barbarians and can't be trusted, you know. The Canim have invented crossbows? Nope, Canim are just beasts who couldn't possibly innovate anything, and the sample crossbow that you have isn't enough evidence. The Canim are building ships in order to get away from Alera? Can't be, since Canim only exist to make Alerans miserable. Allowing them to build ships would just result in sea-going Canim raiders. Pretty much everyone else is aware of this and thinks Arnos a fool for it, but he's in a high enough position that he can't be ignored (and is being backed by Lady Aquitaine, who's using him as a pawn).

* In ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' Season 2, "Real S.H.I.E.L.D." does this ''a lot''. They frequently criticize Coulson's actions, and try to brush off any (factual) counterarguments they get. This is done most frequently with his decision to go to ancient city with alien artifacts. Whenever it's pointed out that was done to deny HYDRA powerful weapons, they always try to twist things so that HYDRA doesn't matter. They also blame Fury's tendency towards secrets as the reason S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, once again smoothly ignoring that that was HYDRA.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'': At the end of the game, [[spoiler:Batman is unmasked as Bruce Wayne by Scarecrow on live television]]. The Riddler refuses to believe it, telling Batman he's far too smart to fall for such a trick. In essence, this is an impossibly large ruse with everyone working together to fool him. The fact that ''literally everyone else'' sees it as the truth is taken by him as proof of it being a lie, since he's clearly smarter than them anyway.

* The recent VisualNovel/Danganronpa installation entitled ''VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3'' has the theme of '''Truth against Lies''', giving the chapter 6 TheReveal of literally BreakingTheFourthWall that the characters are nothing but fictional contestants of a reality game show also entitled as ''Danganronpa'' itself. The characters are in shock that everything was a lie, including their identities, their memories, and their talents. They were able to recover this though in the end.
