* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Season 1, Episode 3 has Iris ask how Barry doesn't gain weight, despite his BigEater tendencies (necessary to keep him from passing out due to his SuperSpeed enhancing his metabolism). As she doesn't know he's The Flash at this point, he merely replies that [[{{Understatement}} he's been jogging.]]

* ''FanFic/DeathIsForcedToTakeAVacation'': Fall Harvest tells Apple Bloom that he works in an office and his job involves analysis of the lifespans of certain species. This is accurate; he just doesn't tell her he's talking about the lifespans of sapient beings and not plants like it would seem from his previous comments.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', Master Xehanort warns Terra that his mentor Master Eraqus plans to kill his friend Ventus, sending Terra off on a rescue mission. And it's true, Master Xehanort was about to murder the young man before Terra intervened. What Xehanort left out was the motive. [[spoiler:Master Xehanort planned to use Ventus in a ritual of sorts to obtain the X-Blade and Kingdom Hearts. Master Eraqus, grief-stricken, felt he [[NecessaryEvil had to kill Ven]] to thwart Xehanort's plans. Terra's battle with Eraqus weakened the master enough for Xehanort to finish him off]].

** Here's a good one from ''VisualNovel/DanganronpaV3'': In order to try and goad the participants into killing each other, Monokuma sets a time limit, at the end of which "every student forced to participate in this killing game will die". Ultimate Detective Shuichi Saihara cottons on to a possible hidden meaning behind Monokuma's wording - if every student "forced to participate" will die, then any who ''volunteered'' to participate will be spared. As for how right Shuichi is, well... [[spoiler:''Everyone'' volunteered to participate, so perhaps the time limit was a bluff all along.]]

* 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.

** 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 ''Film/RogueOne'' (2016), [[spoiler:Leia receives the plans in a physical format. It also makes Vader's phrasing odd, since he was present at the time]].
