* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. The Complainer of the group, Sokka, is also TheSmartGuy. Of course, Sokka is also The ButtMonkey, so it is played straight on occasion. Basically, if the thing being discussed is [[SingleIssueWonk a trivial matter]], Sokka will almost always be wrong, often for comedic effect. If it's something plot-relevant, [[ProperlyParanoid he's almost always right]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNddW2xmZp8 An old Oscar Meyer commercial]] starts with a group of children singing the old "I wish I were an Oscar Meyer wiener" song. Then it shows a boy singing his own version, informing the world at large just how glad he is that he is not an Oscar Meyer wiener, and therefore will not be eaten. He trails off as all the other children turn to glare at him, and then he joins them singing it the right way. [[SarcasmMode Not creepy at all]].

Added DiffLines:

* This is part of why ''Series/TheWestWing'' got rid of the character Mandy at the end of the first season. She was supposed to bring pragmatism to the senior staff's idealistic views by arguing for the option that was easier to sell to the public. However, she would often be arguing for something objectively worse--e.g. staying with the Supreme Court nominee with an Ivy League background rather than the SelfMadeMan who actually agreed with Bartlet's views, because the former would be easier to sell. Inevitably, she would be overruled and the staff would take the moral high road.

* Similar to Wheeler below Stan from AmericanDad is always considered an abusive jerkass no matter the situation even when the Aesop is completely flip flopped with another character doing the exact same thing Stan will still be presented as in the wrong.

* ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'' depicts an extreme example of a system that [[EnforcedTrope believes in this trope]]. Anyone who even ''thinks'' different than the government is treated as a criminal in the eyes of the state and is dealt with accordingly. He is also Obviously wrong and insane, even if is thougt is something as self-evident as 2+2=4.

* A pretty frustrating example happens with ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' with Cho Chang. Late in the book, Cho's friend, Marietta Edgecomb, [[spoiler: attempts to rat out Dumbledore's Army to Umbridge]]. This causes her to have almost permanent boils in a pattern to read SNEAK on her face.

* ''Film/ChristmasWithTheKranks'' involves the Kranks being pressured into expensively celebrating Christmas by the ''entire neighborhood''. Every house on their block is apparently supposed to have Frosty on the roof and soon protesters are demanding that they "Free Frosty!" At the end, their daughter decides to come home for Christmas so they and the neighbors can deck the house out in record time for a big, fluffy ending celebrating the joys of absolute conformity.
