* In the ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5564056/chapters/12831706 Glaze]]'' (sequel to ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5362856/chapters/12384923 Obsession]]''), Alya figures out from a few clues that Adrien and Chat Noir are one and the same, and her immediate reaction is to call him a lying cheating asshole for kissing Ladybug behind Marinette's back. It takes her a minute (and Marinette walking in, hearing her accusation and addressing Adrien as Chat) to realise that Marinette ''is'' Ladybug.

* A retroactive variant comes up in the backstory of ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} Paladin of Souls]]''. The cover story of espionage and bribery used to explain Chancellor Arvol dy Lutez's death in the dungeons of the royal castle some 16 years back was fairly transparent if one thought it through, so many (including the Chancellor's son) concluded that he had seduced the King's young wife.

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.

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.]]

* Surprisingly, ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' featured an instance of this in one episode -- May's father Norman and the local Nurse Joy were actually setting up a fireworks display celebrating Norman and Caroline's anniversary. The English dub censored the plot bymaking it seem like Caroline and Norman were fighting instead of doubts of fidelity being implied.

* Shi from ''Manga/WanderingSon'' mistakes [[CoolBigSis Yuki]] for cheating with one of the protagonists, Takatsuki, in his first appearance; she's touching him rather suggestively on the face. The creepy part is that, though Yuki would never harm Takatsuki, she is in her mid-twenties at youngest, and Takatsuki was only eleven... And a [[{{Transsexual}} girl who feels that he's actually more like a boy]], though neither Shi nor Yuki knew that (though Yuki seemed to have guessed).

* ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' revolves around this. A [[EnfantTerrible little girl]] accuses her two teachers of [[MistakenForGay having an affair]] in order to avoid going to school. It ruins their social lives, ruins their teaching careers, and [[spoiler:Karen's fiancee leaves her due to doubts]]. The 1933 film adaptation ''These Three'' changed it into accusations Joe was cheating with Martha, though the 1960 remake keeps the original plot.

* One Franchise/{{Archie|Comics}} story had Archie's mother borrow his jacket and accidentally leave a tube of lipstick in the pocket. Betty and Veronica later borrow Archie's jacket and find the lipstick. They think that Archie is seeing another girl because the lipstick isn't either of their brands, and angrily confront the baffled Archie. Betty and Veronica both dump Archie, but then they realize that this will just make him go after the girl they think he's seeing now. They both come back and smooch Archie to show that they're better than the competition. The story ends with Archie's mother realizing what she did and apologizing if she caused him any trouble, but a love-dizzy Archie just tells her to cause as much of it as she wants.
