[[folder:Card Games]]
* The card game ''TabletopGame/NinjaBurger'' includes the "Not a Ninja" T-Shirt which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin and gives a bonus to the disguise skill.
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': House Dimir does not exist. Of course the Guildpact relies on ten guilds of all possible mana combinations, but the blue black one is just a myth. That tenth symbol on the wall showing all the guilds? Artist's license. Duskmantle, House of Secrets? Never built, don't know what you're talking about. Those mysterious spirits that the Boros legion fought last week? I don't remember that, and you don't either.

[[folder:Oral Tradition]]
* This is not the origin of the non-Chinese proverb "no three-hundred taels of silver beneath this ground":
-->Some guy digs a hole behind his house and put all his life's savings in it. Not feeling particularly secure, he scribbles a message on the wall: "''No three-hundred taels of silver beneath this ground''". His neighbor Wang gets the message, harvests the ground -- and then wrote: "''This is not stolen by your neighbor Wang''".
* There is a Latin phrase that says "Excusatio non petita, accusatio manifesta". Which means "explanation non asked, guilt exposed".

[[folder:Print Media]]
* Issue 278 of ''Magazine/DoctorWhoAdventures'' is A5 size, rather than the usual A4. The Letter From The Doctor explains that this is totally intentional and nothing to do with him mucking about with the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E8LetsKillHitler Teselecta]]'s miniturisation ray. And on a totally unrelated note, he himself appears to be shrunk, so send help and a tiny fez.

Sometimes, this is used [[InvokedTrope more deliberately]], such as when the speaker is [[CouldSayItBut trying to give out information that they shouldn't but doesn't want to be too obvious about it]] (OrSoIHeard may follow). A {{Trickster}} type may also use it as the misdirecting component of a BatmanGambit, an InfractionDistraction, or KansasCityShuffle; by making an oddly specific denial that is actually ''true'', the mark may be led to believe that the denial is false. (For example: the mark is told that there ''aren't'' [[Discworld/InterestingTimes 2,300,009 invisible vampire ghosts]]--so the mark believes there ''are'', when in fact there are ''no'' invisible vampire ghosts at all.) In rare cases, the speaker may be telling the truth and have no intent to deceive, but it just [[ThatCameOutWrong comes out wrong]].
