* When Izuku's quirk first manifests in ''Fanfic/WaitingIsWorthIt'' (everything in the park not bolted down lifting several feet off of the ground) it is briefly mistaken for a villain attack by random park-goers.

* In ''Film/MeetTheParents'', after all the crap he has dealt with throughout the film, snaps at a flight attendant who told him he had to check his bag because it was too large to fit in the overhead storage unit because part of the reason things had gone sour for him was due to the airline losing his bag earlier. When the attendant insists, he goes on to grasp his bag and insist there isn't a bomb in it, which of course frightens the attendant and all the passengers, leading to him getting forcibly removed from the plane. The only reason he avoids getting arrested is because the father of his girlfriend, who had been the cause of his misery for most of the film, finally decided to lighten up and bail him out.

* An episode of ''Series/{{Wings}}'' had a few of the guys taking the plane for a trip only to end up landing in the middle of a cornfield. At one point Antonio (played by Lebanese-American Tony Shalhoub, though the character is Italian) goes exploring the field to look for help and comes back with the farmer behind him... with his hands raised while a shotgun is pointed at him.

* ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance''; during an arc where Riff had to move to Alaska for a job, the rest of the gang sees him off at the airport where he makes some comments regarding more violent activities. Torg chases after him desperately trying to dissuade him, but all TSA hears is Torg ranting about "blowing them up". His internment is short, as his Viking heritage set off their "Caucasian Meter", and by his account his trip to Guantanamo Bay was more akin to a vacation.

** Another episode had two detectives invoke this trope intentionally on a pair of uncooperative Iranian nationals who refuse to cooperate with an investigation ([[DiplomaticImpunity they happen to work for the Embassy]] and can't be forced to answer questions or charged for impeding). The police resort to basically planting a camera filled with what would appear to be photos scouting a target for a terrorist attack in NYC. The District Attorney is not amused when he has to deal with the fallout from the State Department over the matter, but he and the police officers involved never face any lasting consequences over the incident.

* ''Series/TheJeffersons'': When Lionel is turned down for a loan, George goes to the bank to cosign without Lionel's knowledge, only for Louise to walk into the bank to do the same. George hides behind a pillar, then goes to the counter and opens his briefcase to hide his face. When the teller asks if he was making a deposit, he says he's not there to put money ''into'' the bank, she thinks he's a bank robber and screams not to shoot while dumping wads of cash into his briefcase, which prompts the security guard to hold George at gunpoint.
