** The beginning of case 4 in ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'' has both Apollo and Blackquill acting weird. Apollo is wearing an eyepatch for some reason, but insists that [[CatchPhrase he's fine]] and demands that the trial get started. [[spoiler:The victim in this case is Apollo's close childhood friend, and the defendant is an acquaintance who Apollo trusts wouldn't hurt a fly.]] Blackquill, who always wears shackles to court, usually breaks them when things start to get serious. In this case, he breaks them as soon as the trial begins. [[spoiler:He believes the defendant is the phantom, the one who committed the murder he took the fall for.]] The judge notices that there's something up with both of them.
** During Case 5 in ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'', an astute player will notice [[spoiler: Phoenix]] doesn't seem to be acting quite right. He won't even look at Apollo, the current player character, once he starts talking about the case, and he's acting unusually serious and evasive. [[spoiler: If you didn't figure out by then that something was up, Phoenix's desperation in court should be a clue. While Phoenix isn't a stranger to desperate floundering, the last time he was so desperate that he made wild claims, a kidnapped Maya's life was in danger]]. And that's just what happened this time, too.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/KellysHeroes'', Oddball ([[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} aptly named]]) is a tank commander and sort-of proto-Beatnik who goes on about "positive vibes" and sits down for cheese and wine in the middle of a battle when his tank breaks down. The only truly serious moment he has in the whole film is when he's explaining to Kelly just how badly outmatched his tank is against the [[TheDreaded Tiger tanks]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanReturnOfTheCapedCrusaders'', Batman is fairly happy and works with the police, fitting the 60's TV show that the movie's based on. When he's BrainwashedAndCrazy, he pulls off a StealthHiBye on the commissioner like most other versions of the character, making everyone present realize that something is wrong with him.

** Meta-example: When Yahtzee [[CausticCritic gives a game an even]] ''[[CausticCritic remotely]]'' [[CausticCritic positive review]], his fanbase explodes. Doubly so for ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'', which he ''can't think of any criticism of'', and heavily lampshades this.

** In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', when [[spoiler:the Enterprise is destroyed]], McCoy and Spock crash land on a nearby planet, and Spock is severely injured. As they walk off looking for help, Spock begins openly and honestly discussing his feelings becuase he believes he isn't going to make it and doesn't care about controlling his emotions anymore. The crowning moment is when Spock loudly and genuinely ''bursts out laughing'' at one of McCoy's jokes, and McCoy stares at him with mixed shock and horror.

** In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', Klavier is typically laid-back in court, even when Apollo pokes holes in his arguments, and enjoys using [[GratuitousForeignLanguage Gratuitous German]]. When Vera Misham's testimony indicates that [[spoiler:she was responsible for forging the page out of Magnifi's diary, which Klavier uncovered on a tip from his brother and got Phoenix disbarred]], Klavier is visibly shocked, and calls her "Ms. Misham" rather than "Fraulein" or other variants thereof.
*** Later, [[spoiler:when Kristoph is on the stand, Klavier becomes much more hardcore in his prosecuting, blocking most of Apollo's arguments. Trucy speculates that he wants to impress his big brother.]]

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'':
** A mild form happens in Chapter 3. Emil and Lalli sort of bond over their shared hatred of the bed belts in the night train that they are riding. Later in the night, Lalli hands Emil his belt and tangles himself in his own right before sudden movement of the train projects anyone not strapped to their bed (read: Emil) out of it.
** Sigrun may know when to back down from a fight, but she's also walked into troll nests and killed grosslings, considers a suicide mission to be a relaxing vacation, and through it all has been absolutely fearless. [[http://sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=483 So the first time she's shown to be downright terrified]], it's clear that the crew is in ''serious'' trouble.
** TurnedUpToEleven the first time we see ''[[TheStoic Lalli]]'' [[http://sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=627 look completely terrified]]. Remember, this is the guy who spends his nights scouting the troll-infested Silent World at night when the monsters are most active without batting an eyelash regressing to a state of panicked flailing.
