* 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 VirginBirth 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 ''BeingThere'', the mentally challenged Chance the Gardener goes through a lot of this. He understands that the Old Man (master of the house) has died, but doesn't realize that this means that the house is being closed and that he no longer has anyone to take care of him. He also does not realize, once he's met Eve Rand, that she and the other powerful people he encounters from that point on do not know what he actually is; they think he's a PuritySue of sorts, which has results ([[spoiler: among them, being put forward as a presidential candidate]]) that can be downright alarming to readers...well, not to [[Creator/PeterSellers every reader]]. In the movie version, this is taken further with the long sequence in which Chance walks out into the world outside the house for the first time -- and into the poorer neighborhoods of Washington, D.C.

* The animals (except [[DeadpanSnarker Benjamin]]) in ''AnimalFarm'' relate the pigs' growing corruption, including [[MoralEventHorizon selling Boxer to the glue factory and using the money to buy alcohol]], while guilelessly accepting the pigs' paper-thin justifications of their actions.

* Yuki Takeya, the protagonist of ''Manga/SchoolLive'', undergoes a FreakOut after the school becomes overrun by a ZombieApocalypse, and deludes herself into seeing everything as perfectly fine and happy, with her surviving club-members not having the heart to snap her out of her fantasy. [[spoiler:She does eventually wake up to what's actually happening by the end of the series.]]

* Inverted and PlayedForLaughs at the end of an early episode of ''BoyMeetsWorld''. Morgan ends up stranded on the kitchen counter while the rest of her family has an impromptu water fight in the backyard. She eventually dials 911, tells the operator that she's stuck and can't get down while her parents are fighting outside, then holds the phone toward the open door so the operator can hear all the hooting and hollering. When Feeny gets squirted after complaining that the water fight is drowning his flowers, Morgan adds, "They just shot the neighbor!"
