** D.J. was trying to take a beer can away from two boys at a school dance when her uncle Jesse catches her in the hallway and wrongfully accuses her, until the two boys who were drinking confess to Jesse and he apologizes to D.J. Slightly different in the respect that D.J. did get to tell her side of the story, but even after answering every one of Jesse's questions, he still didn't believe her and didn't even consider the possibility she was telling the truth.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' pretty much lives on this trope, with Akane barging in with fist flying and Ranma ([[NoSocialSkills social retard that he is]]) usually too tongue-tied to do more than stammer out a "[[ICanExplain Let me explain]]" before [[MegatonPunch going sub-orbital]]. Maybe one time out of ten is the incident that draws Akane's ire actually Ranma's fault. (Although, to be fair, there's much less of that in the manga)
** It's even {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d at one point, where Akane asks why didn't Ranma just explain what was going on, and Ranma replies, "Have you ever listened to anything I say before you pummel me?"
* Happens in the latter part of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' when the Black Knights, having heard some convincing {{half truth}}s about their leader Zero from Schneizel, decide to betray him by luring him into an execution squad. Kallen, who has been sent to retrieve him and has been commiserating with him on the way, calls the situation one-sided, before her comrades tell her to get out of the way or else be shot under suspicion of being under Lelouch's geass. At this point, it's completely obvious that the Black Knights are completely set on executing their leader, not to mention that [[ManipulativeBastard Schneizel]], who always [[XanatosGambit has a backup plan]], is behind it, so Lelouch decides to lie to everyone that he used them, [[BreakHerHeartToSaveHer Kallen included, in order to have her spared]].
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Alphonse suspects Edward gave him FakeMemories of his life, and accuses him of not telling him. The events of consequence vary by adaptation; in the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]], before Ed can get in a word Alphonse runs off, leading Ed for an episode long hunt for him before he can finally ask his real question, whether or not he hated him for what happened to him. The manga and anime adaptation mercifully averted all of this by having Winry stop Alphonse and [[WhatTheHellHero call him out on not realizing how worried sick his brother had been every night in bed over him]].

* In the Sadie Hawkins dance episode of ''AsToldByGinger'', Darren thinks Ginger is jealous because Courtney invited him to the dance while Ginger is going solo (Ginger's actually trying to tell him that Courtney meant to invite his older brother Will).
* Played and Lampshaded in the ''TaleSpin'' episode "It Came From Beneath The Sea Duck" when Rebecca is berating Kit for taking Molly out of the house (for a number of convoluted reasons in reality). Baloo is actually GenreSavvy enough to suggest letting Kit explain what happened, only for Rebecca to shush him as well.

* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'': After the events of the [[{{Technopath}} Iron Queen's]] occupation of New Mobotropolis, which briefly resulted in NICOLE being hijacked and forced to help trap citizens in their home, Mina, hoping to spread awareness regarding possible problems with NICOLE being compromised again, uses her status as an IdolSinger to her advantage to start spreading such messages with her music. It's only after her first song is sent that she discovers from Sonic and Sally that NICOLE had actually broken free from the Iron Queen's control, but was working undercover to protect as many people as she could, which Mina was not aware of beforehand. This, combined with a HatePlague generated by Ixis Naugus, eventually results in NICOLE being banished from the city, something Mina never intended.

* The first ''{{Shrek}}'' movie pulled off a two-sided version of this. Shrek half-overhears a conversation between Fiona and Donkey, but misses the most significant part: that Fiona turns into an ogre at night. The next day Shrek and Fiona both assume that Shrek heard the whole conversation and each jump to a false conclusion.
** The ''Shrek'' conversation is skillfully crafted to become two separate scenes based on whether or not you know the piece of information; of course, the audience is aware of it at the time.
