In its most extreme form, this trope borders on NoExceptYes. Can also be considered a LogicalFallacy.

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' parodies [[UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt FDR]]'s " Only thing we have to fear is fear itself" speech in a RunningGag where he has to regularly amend actual phobias in [[DerailedForDetails at audience inquiry]] until he has a LongList ending with fear itself.

* On ''{{Daria}}'' after a confidence building assignment by Mr. O'Neill has backfired rather spectacularly, Daria uncharacteristically tries to cheer him up.

* In the second season of ''Series/{{Galavant}}'', it's revealed that while King Richard spent the entire first season away from his kingdom in order to conquer another one, the local people (sick of the history of Richard's family being selfish and incompetent tyrants) have turned the country into a proto-democracy. However the list of people not allowed to vote (including women, the poor, the lame, lepers, redheads, anyone accused of witchcraft, bastards, gays, ethnic or religious minorities, etc.) is revealed to be so long that it turns into this. For an extra cherry on top at the end of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCvtvfxmiXQ their song]] TheHero Galavant takes a moment to parody the FairForItsDay trope by noting that by the standards of [[TheHighMiddleAges the Middle Ages]] this is still ''very'' progressive.

* Inverted on ''YesMinister'', when Hacker is arguing that high ranking civil servants don't need to receive special honours and knighthoods for doing a job they're already paid for. Humphrey states that civil servants work for a relatively modest wage and deserve the added incentive, prompting Hacker to counter that Humphrey makes more than him. Humphrey then tries to amend it to "relatively modest wage"
