** Played straight in the series 1 episode "Waiting for God". While Lister is freaked out to learn the Cats worshipped him as Cloister the Stupid, he allows the old, blind Cat Priest to believe that it's true, and that Cloister is pleased with his service.

* The Book of Darkness tried to do this on a global scale in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' when her [[EnemyWithout Defense Program]] started acting up because she believed that it was what Hayate desired (it wasn't). She planned on trapping everyone in a LotusEaterMachine before the EarthShatteringKaboom, but she only managed to get two people (Fate and Hayate) and both of them rejected it on the basis that it was nothing more than a dream.

* In AndreNorton's ''The Crystal Gryphon'', [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend Toross]] was mortally wounded rescuing Joisan from the Hounds of Alizon. She told him as he died that if she hadn't been engaged to someone else, she would've been glad to marry him. The truth is, she was fond of him, but "glad to marry him" was an exaggeration, despite Toross being [[ChickMagnet handsome, charming, etc]]. She just never really thought of him that way.

** In Season 4, the heroes capture the [[BigBad Big Bad]] Kuvira's fiancee, and threaten to keep him away from her forever if he can't convince her to withdraw her [[HumongousMecha Colossus]]. When contacted by radio, Kuvira tells him that she loves him, and that military victory isn't as important as their relationship. Presumably, this was meant to be the last thing he heard before [[ShootTheHostage he and the rest of the building he was in was vaporized by the Colossus' weaponry.]]
