%%* * Early in Season 2 of ''Series/{{Galavant}}'', [[TheDitz Ditzy]] ManChild Richard does an offscreen trade and swaps a huge, famous gem for a dragon... or so he's told. He's actually traded the gem for a type of reptile known as a [[ExactWords bearded dragon]]. Throughout the season Richard continues to insist that Tad Cooper, as he named the creature, truly is a dragon, and gives it multiple attempts to do things like breathe fire, only for it to act like a normal lizard. The stinger for season 2 at the very end of {{Series/Galavant}}, [[spoiler: the shows that Tad Cooper really is a dragon.]]dragon, and shows Richard proudly feeding the grown dragon sheep.

* {{Zigzagged}} on ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''--first, [[ConspiracyTheorist Ronaldo]] has [[TheReptilians a ridiculously incorrect theory]] about the events in Beach City, only to learn that most of them were caused by the Crystal Gems--something which he and the rest of the town are FantasticallyIndifferent toward. However, then he twists them around into a conspiracy theory by declaring that "[[{{Shapeshifting}} polymorphic]] [[SiliconBasedLife sentient rocks]]" are trying to hollow out the Earth, under the command of the "Diamond Authority." As the series progresses, we find out that while the Crystal Gems are good guys, Ronaldo's theories are true for [[GalacticConqueror the rest of their species]]. Even the term "[[BigBadDuumvirate Diamond Authority]]" turns out to be accurate.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': In the Denmark segment of the JustBeforeTheEnd prologue, an established ConspiracyTheorist points out a few odd things about the PatientZero group for the Rash, such as the fact that nothing is known about them a week after their arrival, and suspects that there is an ApocalypticGagOrder about the disease's seriousness in place. In the Finland segment that happens a couple of days later, an official newscast announces that the Rash is actually deadly on top of its already-known fast-spreading nature, which means that the Danish ConspiracyTheorist's theory was actually spot-on.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' movie, there's a running gag where Dog explains several ridiculous theories detailing how they became separated from their parents, ranging from them being abducted by mole people to getting amnesia and consequentially believing they were country western singers. When they finally [[spoiler: find their adoptive parents, these wacky theories turn out to be true]].

In the ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' movie, "The Great Parent Mystery", there's a running gag where Dog explains several ridiculous theories detailing how they he and Cat became separated from their parents, ranging from them being abducted by mole people to getting amnesia and consequentially believing they were country western singers. When they finally [[spoiler: find their adoptive parents, these wacky theories turn out to be true]].true]].
** In "Meat Dog's Friends", it is revealed that Dog believes meat comes from meat trees planted by a man named Johnny Meatseed. Cat attempts to set Dog straight by showing him a video of animals being led into a slaughterhouse, which results in [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Dog becoming horrified that he had been eating food made from sentient creatures]] and eventually trying to eat his own brother after considering vegetables and rocks his friends on the basis that brothers are not friends. Fortunately, Johnny Meatseed turns out to be real and plants meat trees for Dog so he doesn't have to eat Cat or feel guilty about eating meat.

** In "Irrational Treasure", [[CuteAndPsycho Mabel]] is helping [[SeekerArchetype Dipper]] uncover a historical conspiracy to prove that she's not "silly" like [[TheLibby Pacifica]] said. However, throughout their quest she keeps unconsciously doing ridiculous things which help them solve the clues. Ultimately, it's revealed that the person who laid the clues [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike was just as big]] of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DanVs,'' whatever ridiculous thing that [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Dan]] says wronged him this week--the Wolf-Man, George Washington's ghost, etc.--will turn out to be real, and a good portion of his other weird theories ("the dentist [[spoiler:is a supervillain]]," etc.) will too. Heck, in "Elise's Parents" he was actually ''trying'' to lie but still turned out to be partly right.

* In episode 3 of ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', Nyarko wonders if Mahiro's {{Tsundere}} attitude and [[ImprobableWeaponUser skill with forks]] mark him as a descendant of the cursed deity hunter from the "[[CthulhuMythos forbidden black book]]". In episode 4 Mahiro's mother returns home and everyone (including Mahiro himself) learns that she's a part-time deity hunter who's also deadly with forks. When this is revealed even Nyarko is shocked, since by her own admission her earlier remark was just an off-the-cuff joke and not meant to be any serious speculation.

* In a meta example, the author of notorious ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'' correctly predicted in an author's note [[spoiler:that Harry is the last Horcrux and will have to die to defeat Voldemort in the last book.]] She's not the only person who guessed this one, but given Tara's extremely questionable grasp of the canon and tendency towards bizarre "plot" elements, this is actually rather impressive.

*People often make fun of conspiracy theorists who think the government is watching everyone, but revelations from leaked files about global surveillance programs show those conspiracy theorists are more right than many would like.

Moana's goes on the mission her grandmother encouraged her to go on - sailing across the ocean, returning the Heart stone to the BigBad who then transforms back into the BigGood it was before, finding new islands and sources of food, and when she returns back to her people, reminding them that they are voyagers at heart]].

Sometimes the guy's truly the OnlySaneMan whose condition is [[GoMadFromTheRevelation due to the frightening nature of the things he had uncovered]]. Sometimes, he IS mad but still got one thing right (he's usually smart enough to notice that this one is somehow different from his usual delusions), but people who already know him will just [[CryingWolf dismiss this as another lie]]. And occasionally, he's RightForTheWrongReasons (sometimes despite particularly bizarre InsaneTrollLogic).
