* In [[https://archiveofourown.org/works/9408584/chapters/21299345 Chapter 16]] of the ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' fanfic ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/9408584/chapters/21299126 Starlight Starbright]]'', when Jerry is speaking to his AI GLADIS:
-->"Do you feel ill Jerry?" GLADIS asked.\\
"In a manner of speaking." Jerry replied.\\
"Should I summon a physician?"\\
"It's not that kind of illness, GLADIS." Jerry replied softly.\\
"I do not understand."\\
"That's not surprising." Jerry shrugged. "It's a feeling... a feeling of guilt. I drove the girls to leave... I could have simply lied to Sam, told her she was wrong about me, and let it stand at that. Why couldn't I?" He sighed. "I just couldn't lie to her... not to her. She's like the daughter I never had... and can never have."\\
"There are medications and procedures to allow you to procreate if you so desire, even at your advanced age." GLADIS said helpfully.\\
Jerry chuckled. "That's not why I won't have a child... it's because of my life."

* Wiki/TVTropes: Most trope names are confusing for many reasons and might get different interpretations (usually literal ones) from readers. This is partly why the IThoughtItMeant page exist.

* An equal parts hilarious and adorable example exists in Nia from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', who exhibits literal-mindedness in several situations: Once she rejects the prospect of marriage because she doesn't get how two people could be physically merged, and her voicemail has her saying "I can't use the phone right now" before feeling the need to clarify that she ''can'' use the phone, just that she's not in reach of it at the moment.
