* In the Anime/DigimonFrontier fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7733322/1/Mistaken Mistaken]]'', Kouji discovers his twin brother Kouichi has what looks like blood caked on his wrist [[BigBrotherInstinct and promptly starts freaking out with worry]]. Later he discovers, to his mixed relief and embarrassment, that it was just paint from Kouichi painting sets for the drama club; Kouichi does admit that the paint that caused Kouji's original FreakOut was for an extremely bloody murder scene and that it was formulated to look the exact color of real blood so Kouji's jump of logic wasn't completely unjustified.
** ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7729886/1/A-Little-Teary-Eyed A Little Teary Eyed]]'', by the same author, has Kouichi answering the door in tears, to Kouji's clear worry, but has him then start teasing his brother after he reveals he was chopping onions.

** In another episode, Maris is out of town and Niles and Frasier commandeer her beach house to host a swanky party. After an incident with a dead seal causes the neighbour to call the police, thinking she saw Niles stabbing Maris (he was actually stabbing the seal's corpse to help it sink.) Frasier insists there is no foul play, just as the cops draw back a curtain to see a soaking wet and half-crazed Niles wiping blood from a kitchen knife.

* In ''DragonBallSuper'', Gohan gets roped into being a stuntman in a Great Saiyaman movie[[note]]Note that aside from Mr. Satan, nobody involved with the film realizes that Gohan '''is''' the Great Saiyaman[[/note]], and Videl pisses off the star Barry Kahn by not fawning over him when he tries to impress her. In revenge, he tries to make it look like Gohan is having an affair with the film's leading lady, who Barry blackmailed into helping him. When Barry shows up with photos of Gohan leaving the actress's apartment (and getting a thank-you kiss for helping her memorize her lines), Gohan starts to say something like this...but Videl just tears up the photos and reveals that she ''instantly'' saw through the trick; she knows Gohan well enough to realize he'd never cheat, and she calls Barry pathetic for trying to destroy their marriage just because she didn't stroke his ego.

* In ''Literature/TheYearOfTheRat'', one of the heroes (a notorious ChivalrousPervert) is spotted through a window of a brothel, pinning a half-naked woman to her bed, his hands on her breasts. The heroine immediately jumps to the conclusion that is obviously right. Only it isn't: the guy was in the process of questioning a hired assassin, and moreover, her masquerade as a prostitute hadn't fooled him for a single moment.

* ''Film/StrokerAce'': The morning following a romantic evening, Lugs finds Pembrook crying at the hotel. The only word she gets out is Stroker's name, so Lugs tracks down Stroker and busts him in the face, believing that Stroker had sex with her. Neither one of them gets the chance to explain that Pembrook passed out from the champagne and Stroker didn't have the heart to take advantage of her like that.

* Invoked by a Canadian broadcaster promoting audio described programming for the vision impaired; the ad starts off blurry, looking like something, but then the scene is revealed to be something else, with the justification that without described video, someone vision impaired wouldn't know the scene was the other thing (i.e. sounding like a woman giving birth in a hospital, but actually a couple unsuccessfully trying to cram a sofa into an elevator)

** Subversion at a different part of the trope later on. After {{Ultimatum}} Spidey stops Mysterio from robbing a gold reserve, but when the police arrive, it's just him. He starts off with "Wait, this is not what it looks like!", but they hear him out, and ''believe him''.
