* George on ''{{Seinfeld}}'' is usually terrible at lying, but he does have one shining moment when he sneaks an IQ test to supposed genius Elaine to take for him, then has to explain the food stains she got on it by concocting an elaborate story about how he went out the window to get some snacks.

* In ''FanFic/TheDarknessSeries'' when [[Franchise/HarryPotter Harry]] is caught out in another lie he tells his "friends" that he had no choice but to lie and keep secrets from them because Dumbledore can read their thoughts and is probably controlling them. They all buy it, hook, line, and sinker.

* ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'' - The Producer (helped by Haruka) to Makoto when she's having a fit for being recognized as a Prince instead of a Princess.
* In ''AnatoliaStory'', [[GuileHero Yuri]], [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Kail]], and their TrueCompanions are generally good at coming up with cover stories on the fly, usually to explain what they're doing poking around in various city-states when they're preparing for some conquest.

* In ''Literature/{{Zeroes}}'', this is one of the applications of Scam's superpower, a Voice which says whatever it has to in order to get what he desires. It helps that the Voice has knowledge of all the relevant details and facts necessary to make the lie believable, even if it's information Scam himself has no way of knowing.

\n* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'':
** Garak lies so often and so convincingly that an [[AvertedTrope aversion]] is noteworthy enough to be [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]].
--->'''Odo:''' He's telling the truth, Captain. He doesn't know.
--->'''Sisko:''' What makes you so sure?
--->''' Odo:''' Because if he did know, he would even now be weaving an elaborate web of lies to conceal the truth.
** In another episode, Garak has Worf completely convinced until Garak chooses to expose the deception with a punchline.
--->'''Worf:''' Then why the elaborate deception?
--->'''Garak:''' Because [[JustifiedTrope lying is a skill like any other]], and if you want to maintain a level of excellence, you must practice constantly.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': When Joffrey questions how Margaery could still be a virgin when she was married to Renly, she hesitates for only a moment before referencing his sexuality as an excuse: Renly never seemed to want to have sex with her except for one night, when he suggested something that 'sounded very painful and could not possible result in children.' While it's true that Renly was gay, Margaery never minded and they were both perfectly kind to one another. But she pulled it off so well that she managed to not only convince Joffrey of her innocence but garner his sympathy as well.
** Of course, Joffrey being [[RoyalBrat Joffrey]], his sympathy [[NiceJobBreakingItHero causes him to make homosexuality illegal and punishable with execution]]. Cue [[OhCrap additional scrambling]] to keep Margaery's brother, Loras (who happened to be Renly's boyfriend) from Joffrey's clutches.

** ExactWords are used as often as possible in this as you can tell the lie by telling the truth. If someone speaking with a southern American accent says they were born in the capital of Georgia, most people are going to assume they mean Atlanta, not Tbilisi.
