* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', Maria doesn't seem to grasp that [[AbusiveParents Rosa is abusing her]] and instead believes that her mother's beatings are caused by the "bad witch" that sometimes possesses mommy. She also thinks that she's the result of something akin to a [[{{Jesus}} virgin birth]] as a result of her mother claiming that she has no father. [[spoiler:Her father walked out on Rosa when Rosa was still pregnant with Maria]]. This is zigzagged a little though, as it also becomes apparent in light of later installations that she also believes that [[spoiler:her mom has been slipping away with a boyfriend]] when she had claimed to either be working extremely long hours or trying to take some time to unwind, granted that this occurs with the help of some speculation from a social worker. In fact, [[spoiler:Rosa actually was working extra-long hours in order to pay off Maria's father's debt in a bid to get him to come back home and be a proper father to Maria]].

* In ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', Florence has her moments of this. For instance, she thinks people behave better around her after she explains that she is a wolf, not a dog, because many more people have been injured by dogs than by wolves. Later on, she has a momentary miscommunication when a human scientist underestimates how bad something is when she calls it "mosquito dangerous", before she points out that mosquitoes still kill thousands of people a year when large predators like sharks, etc barely kill a hundred. It seems to be caused by her being [[UpliftedAnimal a naturally predatory animal uplifted to human-level sapience]] ; she doesn't quite get some human emotions because she doesn't have the distant prey animal instincts that humans do, so all she can do is base her understanding off of logic and her own predatory instincts. Her "egghead" type personality doesn't help, though.

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' has a grown-up example in "Luanne Gets Lucky", where Lucky tells the story of how his grandfather found the perfect walnut tree stump. Lucky talks about how it happened while "Grandpappy" was at a church picnic, while the actual flashback shows that he was trying to escape from prison and ended up getting killed by the guards. Since Lucky isn't the type of person to lie about this sort of thing, it's more likely that he's just repeating the cover-up story told to him by the rest of his family.

** Hilariously subverted in one episode where Kenneth delivers some "funny-shaped balloons" to Tracy and Jack only to mutter to himself "I know those were condoms".

* The Creator/GarthEnnis comic ''Rover Red Charlie'' depicts TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt via some kind of ZombieApocalypse through the eyes of three ordinary house dogs who don't quite understand what's going on, just that their 'feeders' have started hurting themselves for some reason and are no longer around to take care of them.

* The infamous murder of Rachel Nickell, committed in front of her two-year-old son. The police were confused by the piece of paper stuck to her forehead, until they realized the little boy had put it there because it was [[TearJerker the closest he could find to a Band-Aid]]...
