* ''Series/StargateSG1'': In the episode "Threads", pretty much everything "Jim" says to Daniel before his true identity as [[spoiler:Anubis]] is revealed; he never actually lies, but words the truth in an incredibly misleading way to get to Daniel to trust him.
-->'''Daniel:''' Why are you talking to me?
-->'''"Jim":''' Oh, you mean because these other snobs won't even look at you? I'm different, like Oma.
-->'''Daniel:''' Really? 'Cause I kinda got the impression that you two don't quite see eye-to-eye.
-->'''"Jim":''' What, that little...? ''(laughs)'' Oh, that was nothing. We both operate somewhat outside the normal rules and regulations. Sometimes we disagree on how far outside we should go, that's all.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', the game tells you that the environment [[spoiler:in which the final boss is faced]] disables your SwordBeam. Which is correct, though one is still capable of lifting the Master Sword and channel a lightning bolt into it, effectively using a swordbeam-like attack.

* A common line often mentioned regarding a well known employee/manager/cast member/etc in any business suddenly disappearing from work and not showing up from that day forward is to issue a statement along the lines that the "staff member has left the company to pursue other business interests/jobs" and leave it at that. Often times, this is because the staff member in question was [[MortonsFork offered the option to resign with dignity or be fired and escorted off the premises over some screw up on their part]]. Alternatively, the staff member in question may have just issued the heads of management a [[TakeThisJobAndShoveIt spontaneous notice of resignation]], rather than reveal any potential ReasonYouSuckSpeech that was issued by the employee on their way out the door.

** In one of the first lines in the entire saga, an officer aboard the ''Tantive IV'' tells Vader that the ship did not intercept any transmissions of the stolen Death Star plans. Forty years later, we learn this to be technically true; in the final scene of ''RogueOne'' (2016), [[spoiler:Leia receives the plans in a physical format]].

* In ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'', someone asks Tatsuya if he's part of the Ten Master Clans. Tatsuya replies that he's not, which is 'true' because the Clans are both a political group ''and'' a biological one, and Tatsuya was essentially abandoned by his Clan a long time ago. So Tatsuya is, biologically, descended from the Clans (and he does mercenary work for them sometimes) but politically he has no part in their hierarchy.
