* ''WesternAnimation/Rugrats'': Tommy and his friends can never comprehend whenever Angelica is being sarcastic. Ironically, Angelica herself falls into this trope when she overhears [[DepravedKidsShowHost Miss Carol]] state that the real catchphrase of the show is "[[CurseCutShort she thinks they're all little]]--" (''SoundEffectBleep'') and Angelica thinks it's sincere. This leads to a [[InnocentSwearing quite disastrous turn of events]].

** In at least one episode, this is inverted: Sheldon takes something as sarcastic when it isn't. I suppose this can be TruthInTelevision to some extent if you can't recognize sarcasm and you're used to looking for it everywhere.

* In ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' Kaiba is still his usual sarcastic self, yet when he IS sarcastic, no one cares or are just too dumb.
** Yami Yugi just seems to IGNORE the sarcasm from others, look at this exchange:
-->'''Yami:''' Reeeally, you mean he came up with the idea of making fun of a Japanese cartoon on the Internet? How innovative. Genius, even.
-->'''Yugi:''' You know, sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.
-->'''Yami:''' Well, you'd know all about that.
-->'''Yugi:''' What?
-->'''Yami:''' Being lowest I mean.
-->'''Yugi:''' Okayó
-->'''Yami:''' Because you're so short and all.
-->'''Yugi:''' Yeah, good one.
-->'''Yami:''' Thank you.
-->'''Yugi:''' I was being sarcastic.
-->'''Yami:''' I still accept the compliment.

* In ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'', Lance falls into this sometimes. A good example from the first episode:
-->'''Lance:''' ''(referring to Kieth's motorcycle)'' Can't this thing go any faster?
-->'''Kieth:''' [[DeadpanSnarker We could toss some non-essential weight.]]
-->'''Lance:''' Oh, right! {{Beat}} ...Okay, that was an insult. I get it.
** And later in the first season:
--->'''Lance:''' Hey, does Allura ever talk about me when I'm out of the room?
--->'''Hunk:''' Oh, yeah, all the time.
--->'''Lance:''' ''(excitedly)'' Really?

* Due to lacking an ability to demonstrate tone, it's a poor idea to try to be sarcastic on the Internet. There are stories of people getting banned from several online communities for sarcastically stating something that's against the Terms of Use, the most famous incidents involving "I am twelve and what is this?" when you need to be 13 or over to make an account. This was the original reason PoesLaw was formulated, and a frequent source of examples.
