** In "Bart's Girlfriend", Jessica Lovejoy steals money from the church collection plate and manipulates Bart into taking the fall. Lisa gets frustrated at this and rats her out, leading to the entire church congregation going to Jessica's room and finding the stolen money under her mattress. Reverend Lovejoy ''still'' tries to blame Bart, claiming that he somehow transplanted his bedroom into the Lovejoy household, at which point Jessica finally confesses (while admitting that it was just a stunt to get her father's attention).

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'' gives us an inversion. That is to say, Hugh O'Connor is trying to ''affirm'' an allegation against him in a ludicrous and unbelievable way, claiming that his alibi is false because [[spoiler:he had a body double]]. Suuuuuure.

** He didn't even last that long, really... far from it... In the very first chapter he explains his plan to get rid of all evil humans by killing them off to Ryuk. Ryuk replies that if Light pulls through with his plan, he'll be the only evil human left... [[ObliviouslyEvil Light, in turn, seems completely unable to comprehend the logic in Ryuk's statement that what he's doing is in any at all way evil.]] Clinical psychopaths have a tendency to never admit guilt for their actions.

* [[CuteWitch Marisa Kirisame]] from ''TouhouProject'' lies. Like, ''a lot.'' Despite her being a [[FlyingBroomstick broomstick-flying]], [[RobeAndWizardHat pointy hat-wearing]] witch, a running gag of sorts is her introducing herself as ''anything'' but a witch. (Examples include claiming she's a [[{{Miko}} Shrine Maiden]], a {{Meido}} and a Burglar, [[KleptomaniacHero though that last one was,]] [[StickyFingers for all intents and purposes, true]].) Her crowning moment however was when the local Judge of the Dead confronted her about her habitual lying, warning her that her lies may up getting her sentenced to Hell.
