*** According to the novelization it's literally true, and she died from internal damage caused by the choke; the robots that gave the "lost the will to live" explanation are just terrible doctors.

** In ''Fanfic/BlackSky'', Dumbledore uses Veritaserum to make Sirius confess where Rose Potter is, only for Sirius to answer that Rose Potter doesn't exist. Sure, "Rose Potter" was the name Lily's daughter whould have kept if the Potter had lived, but since they're dead, there is no Rose Potter, only Dorea Black who is ''Sirius's'' daughter.

* The Check text for the final boss of the [[KillEmAll Genocide run]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', [[spoiler:Sans, describes him as "the easiest enemy" who can only deal 1 point of damage and has 1 HP. While this is literally true, it greatly understates the problems his boss fight entails. For the former, Sans' attacks hit every frame (thereby bypassing MercyInvincibility), meaning that he hits for 1 damage ''thirty times per second'', and apply a poison effect that causes your health to tick down constantly. For the latter, Sans is the only foe in the game who ''[[NonchalantDodge dodges your attacks]]''.]]

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNMml0zFrEE Slight water damage[=/=]NEW UPHOLSTERY!!!]] [[spoiler: The car's going through a flood (the footage is from Hurricane Katrina).]]

* In ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', Flynn Rider's opening narration includes the phrase "This is the story of how I died." He then hurriedly adds that the audience shouldn't worry because it's actually a very fun story and it isn't really even about him, thus leading you to understand that he was pulling your leg. [[spoiler:Except he wasn't. He ''does'' die, in point of fact. [[DisneyDeath He just doesn't stay dead.]]]] like the ''Rango'' example above it could be taken metaphorically. [[spoiler:Flynn Rider dies. But Eugene lives on.]]
