'''[[DontTryThisAtHome It is not recommended you try this in]] RealLife, particularly if you are being questioned by police.''' The world can be more GenreSavvy than TV seems to think; in some cases, the authorities in question are ''contractually obligated'' to take anything you say at face value and act accordingly.

* In the second chapter of ''VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3'', Miu Iruma takes a jab at [[spoiler:Tsumugi Shirogane's plain appearance and personality, saying that her glasses are the only thing that make her noticeable. Tsumugi replies that in actuality, her glasses are the only thing concealing her true form, and those who witness it pay a terrible price. Her "true form" is indeed as horrific as she implies, since she's the mastermind and LoonyFan who orchestrated the entire killing game.]]

* In the Literature/NeroWolfe short story "The Cop Killer", Inspector Cramer barges into Wolfe's brownstone and demands information on a couple of suspected murderers who were seen coming to consult with Wolfe. Wolfe and Archie casually admit that yes, the two did come there, and in fact are still there nice and cosy in the kitchens. Thing is, they actually ''are'' there, but since Cramer's so used to being screwed around by Wolfe's various machinations and Archie's pranks he assumes they're just messing with him for their own purposes and storms off again.

* In NormMacdonald's 2017 standup special ''Hitler's Dog, Gossip, and Trickery'', Norm describes a scenario in which a wife confronts her husband about the fact that he's been making eyes at her sister, and her husband responds with a sarcastic confession that grows more and more outlandish.
-->'''Husband:''' Hey, the only reason I married you is to fuck your sister, right?"
-->'''Wife:''' No, I shouldn't have brought it up.
-->'''Husband:''' No! Why wouldn't you bring it up? I mean, you're the victim in this whole thing. I remember at the vows, I kept thinking, "I am going to seduce every member of my wife's family. Regardless of gender."
