* This trope was used as the punchline for a commercial for Hansaplast condoms where a young boy did things like get a tattoo, drive a car, and take a chainsaw to his chair at school, claiming each time that his mother said he could do it. At the end of the commercial, he stands outside his parents' bedroom and asks if he can put the cat in the washing machine. We then hear is mother repeatedly saying "Yes" in an orgasmic way, revealing that the boy only assumed his mother gave him the okay for his actions because he didn't understand that his mother was only saying "Yes" as a reaction to having pleasurable sex.

* The character of Rivka ben-Divorah in the ''{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal. Introduced as a girl of perfect doll-like beauty and innocent mien, she grows into one of the most lethal Assassins to graduate from the school. [[note]]She is explicitly described in notes to the stories as looking, at age twelve, like Nathalie Portman's character Mathilde in ''Film/{{Leon}}[[/note]] As her teachers discovered early, a look of cherubic innocence can be incredibly misleading. Her ability to stand there and look innocent whilst various School Bullies are stretched off to the School Infirmary was considered to be a most effective Assassin strategy and she was marked down as having great promise.

* 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".
