* An episode of ''Series/{{Lassie}}'' revolves around Timmy entering Lassie in a dog show, the judges see her name and mistake her for a near identical champion showdog named "King's Royal Lassie", and give Timmy the royal treatment. When he discovers why later in the episode, he tells the truth. Luckily, because of Timmy's honesty and because Lassie proved to be a remarkable dog anyway, no one was too upset.

-> '''Roy''': I'm so confused. I try to figure out where that king guy is from, and now they think I'm the king of someplace else.

* The BadGuyBar scene in ''Film/ThreeAmigos'' is this. A German arms dealer comes in, shoots a man for making fun of him, and warns the bar that some of his friends are due to arrive soon. The titular amigos (really just actors) soon enter the bar and are mistaken for the dangerous Germans, even after doing a song-and-dance routine to try to "cheer everyone up" since they're all deathly afraid of being killed. After the amigos leave, the real Germans come in, get made fun of, and open fire on several patrons.

After the amigos leave, the real Germans come in, get made fun of, and open fire on several patrons.
