* Andrea from ''Literature/{{Legion}}'' believes she's a hallucination because she's crazy. The fact that she actually ''is'' a hallucination has nothing to do with it.

Example belongs in Entertainingly Wrong, and is already there.
** In ComicBook/BatmanRIP, Batman deduces that The Joker was leaving him a hint that whatever the Black Glove Society was up to, that the colors red and black together would be a sign of danger. The Joker had no such intention, however, as he later admits he was deliberately leaving him riddles with no answer.

* In the episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob|SquarePants}}'' where he loses his name tag, [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick are trying to retrace [=SpongeBob=]'s steps that led up to him losing his nametag. Spongebob says he put an apple on Mr. Krabs's desk, then two guys threw him in the dumpster. Patrick says the nametag must be in the apple and that they should go to Mr. Krabbs's desk to find it. Spongebob says Mr. Krabs would have thrown the apple away by now and suggests checking the dumpster for the nametag. When they get there, they discover Spongebob is wearing his shirt backward and that he's had his nametag on the whole time. They had been wrong about the nametag being in the apple, but they did find it in the dumpster (because that's where they were when they found it).

*WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged The one place the Major forbids being destroyed is the Holocaust Museum because he doesn't want anyone to deny "what we did that day" . Considering how much a BloodKnight he is and how almost every character in the series enjoy the crimes and violence they commit, this is more like a badge of pride while also a ironic EvenEvilHasStandards.

** [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Later in the series]], Sera - essentially a street punk turned would-be revolutionary, whose sense of humour tends to top out at "juvenile" - manages to correctly guess that the prophet Andraste had ginger hair. She does so by misconstruing the burning eye on Cassandra's Seeker armour as "Andraste's hairy eyeball" and forming conclusions based on that. -->'''Sera:''' Well, there you go then.\\ '''Cassandra:''' No. No, there we don't go.

** The bad air (or miasma) theory of disease led to attempts to stave off disease by burning incense. This proved very effective against diseases spread by mosquitoes.

** The bad air (or miasma) theory of disease led to attempts to stave off disease by burning incense. This proved very effective against diseases spread by mosquitoes. The main concept of miasma theory (that disease is caused by unpleasant smells generated by corpses) is one big example of this trope - the smell itself is not the cause of disease, but rather a byproduct of the bacteria attracted to the decaying tissue.

* ''FanFic/AnAlternateKeitaroUrashima'': After Motoko loses to Keitaro in a duel and subsequently suffers a major HumiliationConga, Naru has NoSympathy for her and believes that she deserves it. While Naru says so for [[ItsAllAboutMe purely petty reasons]] (namely being forced to apologize to Keitaro for attacking him over [[MistakenForCheating her own mistake]]), she ''is'' right that Motoko deserves it, in that it was Motoko's own actions that led to said HumiliationConga since she repeatedly ignored warnings to stay away from Keitaro and threatened him with her sword right in front of a cop. Furthermore, it's stated that Motoko has done similar things in the past, and Keitaro is the first one to ever press charges.

* In Disney's ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', the leader of the soldiers sings, "Did they send me daughters, when I asked for sons?" He had no way of knowing Mulan was a girl at the time. His song was meant to be question the abilities of the men.

Adding another wrinkle
** An example in ''Investigations 2'' that comes off as shocking in hindsight, one of SmallNameBigEgo Yumihiko Ichiyanagi's early arguements actually turns out to be a case of this. [[spoiler: Manousuke Naito is found dead in prison, so Yumihiko has Souta Sarushiro arrested simply because he happened to be Naito's friend, then comes up with a flimsy reasoning involving a chess board he sent to the prison as a gift containing a chisel in a secret compartment. Eveyone both in-universe and out laughs this off at the time, however, it is revealed ''much'' later that Souta is the true BigBad of the game, and while he didn't personally murder Naito, he did [[TheChessmaster manipulate events with the explicit intention of him ending up dead]], ''and'' his motive for doing so did indeed involve their friendship. (More specifically, Souta believed Naito had betrayed that friendship due to an event Naito himself doesn't even remember)]]
