* In ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'', a MonsterOfTheWeek is asked why he has a giant clock in his chest. His response? "I'll never tell you about the source of all my evil power!" Cue an attack aimed right at the clock while the monster futilely tries to backtrack.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'' episode "Night of the Living Dad", Gill Waterman accidentally lets slip that Marty is a fake dad that Frankentyke made to prevent everyone from finding out that his real dad is the human scientist who created him.
-->'''Gill''': I'm not telling you about the monster dad Frankentyke made because he was ashamed of his real dad.

* ''ComicBook/{{Impulse}}'' #77 (part of the ''ComicBook/OurWorldsAtWar'' crossover) opens with this from the narrator:
-->"Okay, let's say, just for the sake of argument, that you ''haven't'' already read the first part of this star-spanning saga in the pages of ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' #36 (still on sale!)...\\
And let's say that you ''don't'' know that the entire Young Justice gang has crash-landed on the volatile and unforgiving surface of Apokolips, home of the dark god Darkseid and about a million other unpleasant people...\\
And let's just assume that you don't know that, following the crash, Superboy and Robin had a fight over priorities and the team split up: Robin's team to stay with the downed ship and effect repairs...\\
... Superboy's team striking out across the harsh terrain in search of the fallen hero Steel, whose seemingly lifeless body was seen being spirited away by the grim herald of death, the Black Racer!\\
Well, if you don't know all that, ''we're'' not gonna tell ya.\\
Man, we'd hate to be you...

* In the functional finale of ''[[{{Beetleborgs}} Beetleborgs Metallix]]'', [[spoiler: the heroes have just managed to swipe the Astral Axe, which controls one of the two HumongousMecha of the season, Boron. The one who snatched it holds the axe high, intending to summon Boron by shouting his name...nothing happens. The villains laugh at him, one of them snorting derisively about how he forgot to say "Arise," after which of course the hero repeats the incantation, giving them the key to defeating the bad guys' plot.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Pretty does this in one episode where she goes on a TV show and says "I'd never say..." followed by one of her friends' secrets each time. [[spoiler: She's actually doing it on purpose, not because she's stupid.]]

* The ''WebOriginal/SCPFoundation'' entry [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-4357-j SCP-4357-J]] is a demon that keeps mocking the Foundation employees for the insufficient attempts they make at containing it. And, in the process, keeps revealing how to make its containment more effective. In some cases, it improves its own containment itself. Once it is so thoroughly contained that it cannot escape, it is asked why it didn't escape before all the changes to its containment were made. Cue {{Angrish}} as the demon realizes that it has no good answer.
-->'''SCP-4357-J:''' Shit, man, where's the goddamned summoning circle? Or the protective hexagram? You guys don't know jackshit. Hell, go get me some chalk and I'll show you myself! ''{does so}'' And THAT is how you make a proper summoning circle. All the runes in place, everything nice and neat. NOW, if I step in it like this, it'll be hard for me to get out!\\
''SCP-4357-J tries to step out of the circle and bumps against an unseen barrier.''\\
'''SCP-4357-J:''' Oh, [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK]] ME!

A sort of AccidentalPublicConfession, with a little SuspiciouslySpecificDenial thrown in for good measure. If the person is doing this ''deliberately'', it's CouldSayItBut. Or it could be that the villain has a gun in his face and he's a coward. If the person saying this is not a ''complete'' moron, he may follow it with "DidIJustSayThatOutLoud".

If the person is doing this ''deliberately'', ''deliberately'' and therefore is not being stupid at all, it's CouldSayItBut. CouldSayItBut instead of this trope. Or it could be that a variation where the villain has a gun in his face and he's a coward.coward and only acts as if this is the case. If the person saying this is not a ''complete'' moron, he may follow it with "DidIJustSayThatOutLoud".

A sufficiently GenreSavvy villain may give out a ''lie'' in this manner, expecting the heroes to think that he just accidentally told the truth.
