* If you ever played an online video game, you've been one whenever you experienced lag - a lot of people won't believe you if you say "Sorry I lagged" or "Anyone else get a bunch of lag?". This is especially bad if you experienced clientside lag - which a lot of people assume is an excuse for poor performance.

* Rintaro Okabe from VisualNovel/Steins;Gate is a Main/Chuunibyou who tends to get caught up in his fantasies, so whenever he does say the truth, people tend to think it's another one of his fantasies and react accordingly.

** Doubly subverted in the Citadel DLC, where the Archives, after identifying Shepard (and potentially Kaidan or Ashley) as a Spectre, reveal the Council believed them about the Reapers, but blamed the geth to preserve the status quo.

Though it is also possible that these records were updated after the Reapers had launched a full scale invasion and thus there was obviously evidence.

added example. source for Mnemon's death given on discussion page and in edit reason of Age of Bronze

* ''ComicBook/AgeOfBronze'': As another rendition of the Trope Namer, Cassandra's predictions are generally not believed. In this incarnation's case, she is mentally unstable and likely suffering ongoing emotional trauma from being raped as a child. Many of her predictions are rendered in riddles only clear after the fact, and several apply to distant events, such as Achilles' slaying of Mnemon, making it impossible for the Trojans to verify.

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]] * ''Manga/{{Kotoura-san}}'' has a very strange case which is partly caused by ValuesDissonance. Japanese has the tendency to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatemae hide their thoughts as socially appropriate]] by lying. Haruka is a {{telepath|y}} who [[PowerIncontinence couldn't turn it off nor could she distinguish between thought and speech]], and, what's worse, InnocentlyInsensitive. As a result, she was called a ''compulsive liar'' for blurting out what others were thinking. If not for her grandfather's protection she may actually have sent to the [[spoiler:psychiatric ward]] already, as her mother, up to this day, still thinks she is severely delusional.

* In the ''Literature/DresdenFiles'' novels, this trope is a supernatural medical condition known as "Cassandra's Tears". The cure is fairly straightforward: If someone actually believes the prophecy and acts on it, the condition will go away. However, the condition is also very easy to fake and is a semi-common hook in paranormal confidence games, so people tend to be wary of attempting to cure it.

The TropeNamer is the [[ClassicalMythology mythical seer Cassandra]], who was cursed by the god Apollo to give prophecies which were always true but never believed, thus making this trope OlderThanFeudalism.
