* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has used this multiple times. The first and most shocking being when the teaser featured a woman being tied up and tortured by a sadistic captor, the police storm the place only to reveal... it's Dean! [[spoiler: Turns out it wasn't, they were tracking a shapeshifter who assumed Dean's form.]]

[[spoiler: Turns out it wasn't, they were tracking a shapeshifter who assumed Dean's form. Another shapeshifter version happens in "Slash Fiction", where the brothers are shown robbing a bank, herding the staff into a safe and machine-gunning them to death. Turns out it's a plot to frame Sam and Dean.]]

** In the ''Voyager'' episode "Worst Case Scenario", the Maquis stage a mutiny and Torres joins them, but it turns out to be a holodeck simulation; Tuvok set up the simulation to counter a possible rebellion from the Maquis crew that had joined Voyager's crew, but the two crews integrated so well that he decided not to finish the simulation.
** In "Living Witness", the episode starts with Janeway declaring that "violence is the Starfleet way", and Voyager participating in an alien civil war, oppressively putting down a rebel faction. This turns out to be a simulation created by a museum curator many years in the future, painting Voyager's crew in a negative light. When a back-up of the holographic Doctor is discovered, the Doctor helps the curator sort out what really happened.
*** A simple clue besides the crew being out of character in the intro? During the battle, all their systems hold and they break through everything thrown at them with ease.

*** Later followed with ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'', where the two generations of Riders are seemingly killing each other over their differing philosophies and for the right to battle the Badan Empire. [[spoiler:Initially, the in-fighting turns out to be for the exact same reason as in ''Super Hero Taisen'' (just replace "a pocket dimension" with "[[Series/KamenRiderGaim the Helheim Forest]]") but after the villains are defeated, the Showa Riders (who prioritize defeating evil first) reveal that their beef with the Heisei Riders is legitimate, since they feel that the Heisei kids' are "soft" for prioritizing the protection of civilians and blame their emotional attachment to their dead friends for allowing Badan to return as an ArmyOfTheDead.]]

** In the first cover of the storyline ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'', Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} smashes the Bottle City of Kandor, apparently killing seven million of Kryptonians. In context she is destroying a fake to prove her cousin that Krypton never was real. WHY? Because Superman is having a nervous breakdown, and the Kandorians convince Kara that the best way to solve her cousin's mental issues is lying to him and making him believe his life is a lie. Bizarre ideas of therapy aside, this confirms that when it comes to super-dickery, no one beats the Last Children of Krypton.

Bizarre So it was not Kara who was being an asshole. It was Superman and Supergirl's entire race who were being assholes to both cousins through their bizarre ideas of therapy aside, this confirms that when it comes to super-dickery, no one beats the Last Children of Krypton.therapy.

* At the end of one episode of ''Anime/JojosBizarreAdventure: Stardust Crusaders'', Hermit's Purple tells Joseph that Kakyoin is a traitor working for Dio, followed by a shot of Kakyoin staring menacingly at Jojo. In the next episode, it turns out that this Kakyoin was actually the VillainOfTheWeek's Stand, Yellow Temperance, disguised as Kakyoin.

* Website/{{Superdickery}} derives most of its humor by posting a lot of these moments out of context, resulting in Superman coming off as a casual mass-murderer and [[KickTheDog dog kicker]].
