* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': It happened sometimes in the original series, but the ''ShinMazingerZero'' spin-off gave a particularly hilarious example. In a chapter Kouji and Minerva-X are together inside the cockpit. During the battle Mazinger moves a lot and Minerva lands on Kouji on a ''very awkward and embarrassing'' position (face-down and on top of Kouji, with her head hovering above his groin and Kouji's head stood between her legs). Sayaka -who had just arrived and destroyed three [[{{Robeast}} Mechanical Beasts]] in a fit of jealous rage- sees them, and they -after displaying tremendously comical OhCrap stares- try to explain it is not what it looks like, and Minerva was not human but she actually is a Super Robot created by TheProfessor Dr. Kabuto to be Mazinger-Z's BattleCouple. Sayaka's reaction was an incredulous FlatWhat before trying to kill them.

** Black Panther seems particularly prone to this trope. In an issue of ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' when he and {{Storm}} were subbing for Reed and Sue, Ben asked Ororo if her hair was weave. Taking offense, she invited him to lift her by her hair to show that it is indeed real. Cue T'Challa walking in on Ben holding his wife by the hair.

* In SteveMartin's ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther'', this trope occurs twice. The second time is a particularly funny scene where Detective Ponton walks into Clouseau's apartment and it appears that he is having sex with his secretary, Nicole. In reality, she was choking on an egg and he rushed to perform the Heimlich. What makes the scene particularly amusing is that the two of them don't think that Ponton took it the wrong way and have the following conversation, which piques Ponton's interest:

* One time, ComicBook/{{Superboy}} and ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} have an argument and brawl, only for [[WonderGirl Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandsmark)]] to walk in and assume Superboy is cheating on her and that the two are engaging in foreplay. She attacks Supergirl and loses, but the misunderstanding is cleared up. Cassie didn't even stop to consider that Superboy is the son/clone of Franchise/{{Superman}}, Supergirl's cousin.

* This happened several times in ''Manga/WanderingSon''. In an early chapter the protagonists sister walks in when he's undressing with a girl in his room, since he had been caught crossdressing by her. His sister then proceeds to think that he was doing something "dirty" and tells their mom. In a later chapter, set when the protagonist is a high school freshman, the sister catches him with his girlfriend and once again thinks he was doing something naughty. In reality his girlfriend was just massaging him and he got a RagingStiffie by accident.

* In ''Anime/CandyBoy'', there is a roll call just when Kanade and Yukino are fighting over control of a mobile phone, which makes them end up on the bed in a very suggestive position. After an awkward pause the student checking on them simply declares that the "shameless couple" is in and leaves.

* A darker variation happens in ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}''. At the end of the second episode (chapter eleven of the manga) [[spoiler:Jun appears to push Waku off the HumongousMecha everyone is standing on.]] Whether it was intentional or accidental isn't certain at the moment, [[spoiler:especially due to Jun's JerkAss nature so far and his "You're embarrassing us" line.]] Eventually we learn it would have happened no matter what. [[spoiler:The pilots die after they finish using the mecha. Waku died at that moment and fell due to that]].

* In the ''The New Adventures of the ComicBook/WonderTwins'' short [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsEkAK6zYYc Be Kind, Rewind]] the twins are at a video store when they spot Marvin and Wendy, now adults. They try to evade Marvin and end up going into the basement of the store, which is the pornographic section. Marvin notices them and follows them. As they're in the Adult section he gets the wrong idea that they are either incestuous or they watch porn together.

The titular character notices her beau Sully sneaking off with her friend Dorothy into Loren's store, with Dorothy closing the blinds and putting up the "Closed" sign. When in another instance she actually catches them coming downstairs from Dorothy's room, she flips out, only to have Dorothy reveal that she's been teaching Sully to dance in order to surprise Mike. ** Several seasons later, Jake notices his sweetheart Theresa sneaking off with local {{Jerkass}} Hank. When he confronts Hank and he refuses to reveal what's going on, Jake gets drunk and starts trashing the town. An angry Hank finally reveals that Theresa has been teaching him to read and that he didn't say anything because he felt it was no one else's business.
