* ''StrangeMagic'' plays with this - one of the first scenes is of a fairy princess catching man she was about to marry kissing another woman (''on their wedding day''), but another character later describes the situation as a "misunderstanding" - her charismatic ex convinced everyone, including her father, that either he didn't really cheat or it was a minor lapse in judgement and won't be repeated.

* A few episodes of ''Series/{{Family Matters}}'' fit this trope. The first was "The Stake-Out" when Estelle and Rachel fear Carl is cheating on Harriet with his female police partner, Vanessa. They come into the stateout, and from what they see, they suspect that he was doing it. They realize they were wrong, and that it was a stakeout indeed. "Tender Kisses" involves diaries of Harriet being read by Urkel, fearing she's cheating on him, only to find out that Harriet wrote a fake diary, to elicit a response from Carl, and to test his trust for Harriet.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': Helen finds [[AffairHair one of Mirage's hairs on Bob's suit]], then overhears the second half of their phone conversation before he suddenly leaves on a "business trip."

* Happens to Reef in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Stoked}}!'' episode "Sweet, Sweet Meat Cheat". Fin overhears Reef make a comment about cheating on Lo and assumes the worse. He is actually 'cheating' on the vegetarian diet she put him on by eating franks.
** During that same episode, Fin running around after Reef and trying to catch him in the act is, ironically, what makes Lo herself believe that Reef is cheating on her with Fin in the first place.

* The first episode of ''Anime/DeathParade'' has an... extremely complicated example of this trope. The series takes place in what is essentially purgatory and the premise revolves around an ArtificialHuman who must decide whether people get sent to an endless void or allowed to be reincarnated. The episode revolves around a newly wed husband and wife who died on their honeymoon. At first we're led to believe Machiko is a GoldDigger however a few moments later she explains to Takashi that he misunderstood everything. However [[spoiler:it turns out she really did cheat on him, however only once and she regretted it.]] ''Then'' it's revealed [[spoiler:that too was a lie. She never loved him and their unborn baby wasn't his.]] [[spoiler:Machiko]] gets sent to the Void for their actions [[spoiler:however the end of the episode implies she was actually lying ''about lying''. She hated seeing her husband blame himself for killing their child so she pretended it wasn't his in order to have him rest in peace.]] Decim recognizes his mistake however it's too late to fix, and [[spoiler:Machiko]] is cursed to [[AFateWorseThanDeath all of eternity falling in an endless abyss.]]]]

* Used in one of the ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad'' OAV's, ''Message in Rouge'' (And the manga story it was based on.) [[spoiler: Madoka has an HeroicBSOD and runs away from home when she believes her beloved dad is cheating on her also beloved mom, staying in the Kasuga apartment when Kyousuke is home alone. It turns out Mr. Ayukawa was checking on the well-being of a co-worker who had a bad eye, and Mrs. Ayukawa knew it all the time.]]
** Played much more for laughs in the OAV that introduced Akane. She mistakenly believes Kyousuke is cheating on Hikaru with Madoka, goes on to give his "other woman" a piece of her mind... and [[OneeSama is left starstruck]] by [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer her]].
* ''LightNovel/KyouKaraMaou'': Wolfram is always accusing Yuuri of cheating and Yuuri never is.
