* In the first chapter of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', Keiichi stayed home from school because he was starting to get suspicious of some classmates. Two of the girls from his school showed up that night to bring him some food and tell him they hoped he was feeling better. While eating the food, he choked on a sewing needle baked into a pastry. After having a talk with the police, the half-eaten snack containing the needle was nowhere to be found. Its unexplained disappearance would be creepier if it weren't the sort of thing his parents could've reasonably thrown out with the garbage. The hypodermic syringe is another, slightly creepier case in this arc, although at that point, of course, no-one was left to actually say ItWasHereISwear. This trope is arguably subverted in both cases since [[spoiler: the sewing needle and hypodermic syringe actually ''were'' paranoid delusions]].

** This problem, used as a comedic device, continually plagues Candace; whatever amazing and bizarre thing Phineas and Ferb are doing that time, there's no sign of it by the time Candace tries to show Mom. She shows flashes of GenreSavvy regarding it, but she still tries anyway. This happening OncePerEpisode is the premise of the whole showe. Phineas and Ferb's creations must [[ContrivedCoincidence have Plot Armor in reverse or something]]. Candace [[spoiler:and sometimes Phineas and Ferb]] tries extremely hard to show Mom what Phineas and Ferb did, but the creations are always completely destroyed. Candace even "discovered" a nonexistent sensor that was buried in the family driveway and triggered a creation's invisibility.

* In ''Film/AllThroughTheNight'', Humphrey Bogart's character escapes from the headquarters of a gang of Nazi saboteurs during WW2. When he attempts to lead the police (who are skeptical of his story, as he's a mobster himself) back to the lair, it's been tidied up and all the swastikas, Hilter portraits, etc., have been removed.

* Used in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Obama Wins!" when Kyle leads the police to Cartman's bedroom only to find that the swing state election ballots that Cartman had stolen were gone. YouHaveToBelieveMe ensues.* In the ''ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'' debut episode "What A Night For A Knight," Shaggy and Scooby notice a missing spot on a museum wall. When they gather the others and bring them to the scene, the empty spot had been filled. "It was a minute ago," Shaggy pleads.

* A few times in ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear''. In the first book, people keep [[VerticalKidnapping disappearing]], even their footprints. This happens to some thugs chasing Tash, and her uncle tells her she just ''dreamed'' there were thugs and ran out of the house. During the second, whenever Zak tries to tell people about the zombies there's no longer any evidence. In the fourth book Zak comes across the BigBad experimenting on people, and he's taken back to the place and told that it's an IKnowWhatYouFear hologram machine. Later books have Zak, Tash, and their uncle all trusting each other enough, and made GenreSavvy enough, to take these claims seriously, and this element phases out.
