* ''Never'' try to keep a secret if you're an ''Webcomic/ItsWalky!'' character. The Head Alien will pull this trope on you every time.

* A rare good guy example is Charlie in the third season finale of ''{{Lost}}''. He uses the fact that [[ManipulativeBastard Ben lies a lot]] to mess with the heads of his captors.

* {{Inverted}} in ''Film/SkyBlue'': [[spoiler:When they were kids, Cade killed a guard and blamed Shua, which led to Shua being exiled from Ecoban. Shua himself has to get Cade to set the record straight.]]
* The most famous example is [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] [[LukeIAmYourFather telling Luke he's his father]] in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', contradicting [[YouKilledMyFather what]] Obi-Wan [[FromACertainPointOfView had told Luke]] in ''Film/ANewHope''.
* Magneto says this almost verbatim to Pyro in ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' ("Is that what they say?"), regarding him being "the bad guy". It wasn't a lie, so much as a point of view.

* ''Codename: KidsNextDoor'' actually uses these words exactly, with Father telling Numbuh 2 that contrary to what 2 had been told, 2's father always finished last in tubing.
* ''TheSimpsons'' uses this trope in one episode which had Marge initially being utterly terrified of flying in an airplane. During her time spent with a psychologist, it is eventually revealed that this fear all started when she was a young child. Her father told her all about the exciting job he had as an airline pilot, but one day she sneaks onto the plane where he's working and discovers, to her shock and dismay, that he is actually a mere flight attendant (or "steward", as they were called back in the day). The fact he had to wear the same uniform as the stewardesses didn't help.

** Dumbledore tells Harry at the end of the first book that his father, James Potter, once saved Snape's life. Not until the third book does he learn -- from Snape -- that [[spoiler: James's friend was responsible for Snape's life being in danger to begin with]]. He also left out the fact that, rather than just being enemies like Harry and Malfoy, James and his friends regularly bullied Snape -- despite being a Gryffindor, James seems to have been the Malfoy in this comparison.
