* As the above Amulet of Eternal Life, Xanatos, from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', discovered a cauldron which allowed a person to live "as long as the mountain stone". [[GenreSavvy He was smart enough to test it first]]. [[LiteralMetaphor Yup]], ''[[TakenForGranite stone]]''.

* Brenish ''lives'' here in ''Literature/{{Below}}'', and especially loves lies of omission. He repeatedly questions the authenticity of the treasure map he knows is fake, even well after it's fooled both Gareth and the Expert and [[DungeonCrawling the quest]] is underway. Whenever he finds a cache of items, he leaves something out but gives up the rest. (In one case he says the item he pocketed ''could have been'' destroyed and its pieces lost among the floor debris.) And his trade offer to Lila, while sincere and a fair deal, is embellished to stratospheric heights.
--> '''Brenish:''' The late spellbinder [[spoiler:Dexter the Unctuous]], a man of wide renown, bestowed upon me two talismans of great power.
** The lofty-sounding but insulting title is one the man would not have chosen for himself, but others would; his truly wide renown was for being [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk a slimeball]]; the meanings of "talismans" and "great power" are stretched paper-thin; the binder didn't make them; and Brenish got them from his corpse. He's also saying this to a mind reader.

** Gandalf himself does this a lot. For instance, "A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to." While this is true from the wizard's perspective, the people he's meeting may disagree.

Less commonly, it is used in the wake of a {{Retcon}}, in an effort to smooth over the inconsistencies introduced by said retcon. A particularly infamous example occurs in the '' Franchise/StarWars'' movies, where, "Darth Vader killed your father" was pronounced true "from a certain point of view" in [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi the third film]], even though in [[Film/ANewHope the first film]] the line clearly indicated that they were two different men. Nevertheless, [[Creator/GeorgeLucas George]] [[LyingCreator Lucas]] [[WordOfGod insists that the metaphorically-true meaning was always what he intended]].
