* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' loves to use the viewer's expectations from previous Yugioh series against them. For example, the WarriorTherapist trope shows up a lot in previous series through duels, usually at the DarkestHour when the opponent is about to crush them and has just revealed his/her tragic backstory. When Yuya reaches this moment, [[spoiler: he doesn't have a way out and the duel has been so brutal that he winds up discovering his SuperPoweredEvilSide]], accidentally enforcing his opponents views and destroying any chance at redemption or friendship. Furthermore Yuzu, Gongenzaka and Reiji repeatedly subvert viewer expectations about their characters based on previous characters with similar roles and traits, [[WellIntentionedExtremist especially Reiji]].

* ''Manga/CrossGame'': A beautiful girl is attacked by three delinquents. But lo, a hero arrives! With but three mighty punches he decks the villains, saving the girl. Noticing her injured hand he gentlemanly offers to provide medical treatment at his conveniently nearby home...\\
\\
Wait a minute... we've seen this hero before. Gasp! He was part of the gang of delinquents -- it's an InvokedTrope! Oh dear, what will happen to the beautiful innocent girl now? Will our onlooking heroine warn her in time?!\\
\\
Wait... what is the beautiful innocent victim doing now? She's got her cell phone out! She's calling the police! "That was extortion they tried to commit -- the police need to know about it." The "delinquents" flee, revealing the truth.\\
\\
An InvokedTrope that then got [[SubvertedTrope subverted]].

* The Literature/GreenSkyTrilogy does this for FalseUtopia. Sure, the Kindar society is a beautiful, peaceful PerfectlyPacifistSociety that's built on a Big Lie (the exile of dissenters who became the Erdlings) and has serious issues with narcotic abuse and fading psionic skills...but when the whole thing was exposed due to the High Priestess's BatmanGambit, the Erdlings turn out to be ''almost'' as pacifistic as the Kindar, people adjust to the reality in a relatively calm manner, and most make an effort to integrate the societies. By the end of the tie-in game, the society is well on its way to ditch the "false" label entirely.

* This YouTube comment: "An airplane was about to crash. There were 4 passengers on board, but only 3 parachutes. The 1st passenger said "I am Stephen Curry, the best NBA basketball player. The Warriors and my millions of fans need me, and I can't afford to die." So he took the 1st pack and left the plane. The 2nd passenger, Donald Trump, said, "I am the newly-elected US President, and I am the smartest President in American history, so my people don't want me to die." He took the 2nd pack and jumped out of the plane. The 3rd passenger, the Pope, said to the 4th passenger, a 10 year old schoolboy, "My son, I am old and don't have many years left, you have more years ahead so I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute." The little boy said, "That's okay, Your Holiness, there's a parachute left for you. America 's smartest President took my schoolbag.""

* In ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'', Sydney fumbles for her glasses, talking as if she were BlindWithoutEm. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1290 She then takes out the overconfident bad guy and exclaims, "Trope subverted!" before explaining that no one's that blind -- well, yes, some people are, but they don't get to be cops.]]

* ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'' ''seems'' to have an example of PerspectiveReversal at first glance. Sully is generally much more progressive than most of the other men in town about almost every issue: ethnical minorities, women's rights, controversial books in the new town library, the theory of evolution, homosexuality... But when it comes to the railway and other building projects, Sully is the one fighting "progress" and the other men are supporting it. Sully has good reasons to dislike that kind of "progress" though, because he knows how this would affect the local Cheyennes, all the animals in the nearby forest and the nature scenes. Which would have been a radical viewpoint in the 1860s/1870s. The other men on the other hand will only want to make a quick profit, and will not care too much about if other values could be lost. So it means that Sully ''still'' is the progressive one and the other men the more conservative ones.
