** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'': {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d, then {{Subverted|Trope}} later on -- as quoted above, the movie boasted a musical montage of Mystery Inc. [[GenreSavvy getting bored with solving "Scooby-Doo" Hoaxes]]. Then they investigate an island populated by zombies, ghosts, and monsters, [[GenreShift who all turn out to be]] ''[[GenreShift real]]''. Still considered one of the franchise's highest points, it's notable for being the first real subversion of the trope in the series, with "This time, the monsters are real" being its tagline.

** The Live-Action ''Film/ScoobyDoo'': Subversion: Had real demon-monsters and a mystic talisman that gave the villain the power to [[FromNobodyToNightmare turn into a mutated, ginormous version of herself]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext to enslave the Earth]]. The group had become GenreSavvy enough to realize that there were no real monsters and that the culprits were just ordinary people in costumes, but turn out to be WrongGenreSavvy.

** ''Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost'': Subversion -- the entire town pulls a ScoobyDooHoax for the opposite reason: to attract tourists. The real supernatural threat is actually working ''with the gang'' to investigate the fake one!

* Webcomic/KateBeaton's comics have, in a couple of recent strips, featuring some "Mystery Solving Teens", which parody the entire trope. Having been enlightened to a mystery in the area, they go off and smoke for a while, then AssPull a name or group who was pulling the ScoobyDooHoax for the benefit of the person begging their help.

[[spoiler:He's holding weird sex parties and wants the kids to stay away, but doesn't realize that the mystery only attracts children]]. Ironically enough, [[spoiler:the ''real'' ghost on the island just wants people to stop having sex on his island]].

** In one of the ''Batman'' issues, the multiple Man-Bats running around turn out to be normal criminals who were disguising themselves to take advantage of the fear caused by the real Man-Bat, who was also at large.
** In ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' issue, a billionaire named Flint Pumice pretends to be the Phantom of the Operock to force the opera house's owners to sell it because he needs the land for a new mall. He's implied to be the first crooked real estate developer ever since Wilma comments she never heard of anything like this before.
** A developer in the ''WesternAnimation/TopCat'' issue says dressing up as a ghost is the first thing they teach at realtor school. Ironically, neither of the two developers in that story pull the trick. The first two ghosts are Top Cat's gang trying to keep Officer Dibble to catch Top Cat gambling and the other ghost is Officer Dibble using a ScarecrowSolution to prevent the developers from [[CommunityThreateningConstruction destroying a suburb]].
