** Well, he's not lying. His ''sanity'' is still up for debate.
* ''TalesOfTheGoldMonkey'': Bon Chance Louie is another Bellisario incarnation of this trope.
* ''TopGear'': "...some say, during a driving test, he failed his examiner for screaming. And that he knows precisely two facts about ducks, and both are wrong." Enter, The Stig. Note that the Stig himself never provides the boasts. (As [[BadassDriver The Stig]] is TheVoiceless, he never provides ANY dialogue.)

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1867 SCP-1867 ("A Gentleman")]], AKA Lord Theodore Thomas Blackwood. He will always try to turn any conversation into one about his adventures, which are largely impossible. However, he also provided evidence, in the form of a collection of undiscovered life and technology being kept at a property belonging to one "Lord Blackwood". It's still questionable if he really did any of it, or even if he is the real Lord Blackwood, because SCP-1867 is a telepathic sea slug. Not that ''he's'' aware of that, of course. Don't try to tell him, though. He'll just think you're drunk.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2620 SCP-2620 ("Ambassador from the Mole People")]]. SCP-2620 tells bizarre stories about gigantic underground caverns and the civilizations that live in them. His stories repeatedly contradict each other and despite extensive investigation the Foundation hasn't been able to find any evidence at all to support them.

Don't confuse this with people who inflict injury on themselves to get attention, which is [[MunchausenSyndrome Munchausen's Syndrome]], or when someone inflicts injury on someone or something else to get attention, which is [[MunchausensByProxy Münchhausen's Syndrome by Proxy]].

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Safari O'Toole, Mrs. Davis's friend in the episode of the same name, pretends to be a gentleman explorer. In spite of his tall tales, he's a likeable character who only mades up his stories so he could impress Mrs. Davis.

* Captain Hap Shaughnessy from ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'' would make the baron pale in comparison and seem downright believable. No matter what mundane a task or hum drum a story you have, he always "remembers" how he used to be involved in it "back in the (decade)", and his stories will inevitably involve dozens of famous political or sports figures who he shamed with his masterful skill, usually scoring twelve touchdowns at once in the Super Bowl where he saved the whole universe from invasions from time traveling vikings, or so his massive sacks of lies go.
