* In Literature/NineteenEightyFour the names of the Ministries (Ministry of Truth, Ministry of Love, Ministry of Plenty, Ministry of Peace) can be perfectly true from The Party's point of view, rather than ironic. Minitru doesn't falsify or lie, it corrects the past to show the new truth, which having been corrected has now always been the truth; Minipax maintains ''internal'' peace by continually waging ''external'' war; the goal of Miniluv is for everyone to love Big Brother and The Party; and Miniplenty is in control of Oceania's economy, which appears to actually be very strong but is directed almost solely towards creating weapons and large public gestures which do not actually improve the lives of the population but keep their minds occupied.

* Garry King from ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'' almost entirely speaks in this and Insane Troll Logic. He often makes plans in the loosest and most roundabout way, so that he never ''technically'' breaks them, and it's a RunningGag that he's "never wrong". Not "always right", "never wrong". It's futile to argue with the man sober, let alone drunk.

** Rumplestiltskin telling Regina that magic cannot revive her lost love. It's "technically" true, considering that both magic AND science are needed to revive the dead, even if they CameBackWrong

Less commonly, it is used in the wake of a {{Retcon}}, in an effort to smooth over the inconsistencies introduced by said retcon. In the [[TropeNamer original example]] shown at the top of the page, the line from the third movie practically {{Hand Wave}}s the fact that the line from the first movie was originally intended to be describing two different people, [[LyingCreator despite any of]] Lucas' [[WordOfGod belated claims to the contrary]].

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10724053/1/Code-Geass-The-Prepared-Rebellion-V2 Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion]]'', Lelouch (as Zero) claims on live TV that he killed Prince Clovis, when it was actually C.C. However, it was only thanks to him that she was able to get her revenge, so he considers it to be at least partially true.

* The ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' story "Fall from Grace" was about the death of Matt Murdock. A doppelganger assumed the identity of Matt Murdock, and died. So from a certain point of view, Matt Murdock died. You see?

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fic [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5362856/chapters/12384923 Obsession]], Marinette talks to her classmates about her developing secret relationship with Chat Noir by claiming that she's been looking after a stray cat that's been hanging around her roof and occasionally comes inside for pats. Adrien ([[SecretIdentity Chat Noir himself]]) is listening in on the conversation, and both he and Marinette have rather hilarious reactions to Juleka suggesting that she get him neutered.
