** Flourite, one of the Off-Colors (Homeworld gems who are persecuted because they don't fall into line), doesn't think that Rose Quartz existed. [[spoiler: And while Rose Quartz ''gems'' did indeed exist, the Rose Quartz everyone is thinking of did ''not''. Pink Diamond, who shapeshifted herself into that form and pretended to be a Rose Quartz, was the actual leader of the Crystal Gems.]]

* Early in Bioware's ''Videogame/MassEffect1'' we get Manuel, a quack on Eden Prime that raves incomprehensibly about an end of the world scenario and is treated as insane by his companion. WAY later on in the game the team learns that his doomsday rants are more accurate than you originally thought. The accuracy of his rambling has lead [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation some fans to theorize]] that Manuel might have ''also'' glimpsed the Prothean beacon's message and his mind was destroyed, as Liara suggested might happen to someone who, unlike Shepard, lacked the extraordinary willpower to handle it.

* In the new Literature/{{Foundation}} trilogy novel ''Literature/FoundationInChaos'', one of the characters references a lunatic fringe group which committed suicide when told by creatures inhabiting the defense platforms of the impending end of Trantor. When you read the earlier novel, you find the creatures indeed said this and they were right -- the Galatic Empire is collapsing and Trantor lies in ruins in later Foundation novels.

* In Creator/JanetEvanovich's "Seven Up", bounty hunter heroine Literature/StephaniePlum is initially skeptical toward Mooner's worries about his friend Dougie (and a roast from the freezer) disappearing, and later doubts his claim that his assailant was an elderly lady, since Mooner is notorious as a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and a {{stoner}}, who's lately taken to running around costumed as a superhero. Of course, it turns out he was actually telling the truth.

* In the "Twin Beaks" episode of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', [[TheDitz Launchpad]] obtains a magic log and begins cryptic clues about the situation to Darkwing (a ShoutOut to ''Series/TwinPeaks'', though nothing else in the episode is). Launchpad's weird insights make sense in the end, though; [[spoiler: the log is [[PlantPerson Bushroot]], who really ''has'' been whispering hints to him]].

* Used constantly in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''. The most ridiculous explanation given will "always" be the right one. This is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Robin, who complains he's tired of being WrongGenreSavvy and goes with the ridiculousness.

* Throughout the ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'' series the protagonists will be ''bombarded'' with conspiracy theory, parapsychology, obscure philosophy, and occultism. A few characters in particular (like June and Lotus in ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'') will unload long explanations that sound like utter nonsense at the drop of a hat. Their actual InUniverse accuracy rate is about 75% -- and even when one of their theories is completely wrong it still hints at the truth.
