* In ''TheLastBattle'', Dwarves are in paradise eating a feast, but they believe they are in a hut eating slops. This does at least have a mystical explanation, as it is caused by Aslan's power, and is part of Lewis' AuthorTract on how atheists could have God and Heaven right in front of them but be unable to see it.

** The Doctor, who despises war and killing and hates himself for hurting innocent people, cannot believe that Clara's ex-soldier boyfriend Mr. Pink is anything but a BloodKnight who glories in death and destruction. Mr. Pink, now a middle-school teacher [[NotSoDifferent who also despises war and killing and hates himself for hurting innocent people]], upon learning The Doctor is a Time ''Lord'' cannot believe that an officer ("an ''aristocrat!''" at that) is anything but an UpperClassTwit GloryHound who doesn't care about "lower people" getting hurt. In the end they agree that Clara loves them both and that's all that really matters (The Doctor also settles on referring to Pink as a muscle-headed PE teacher (Pink teaches math) which is probably an upgrade from heartless killer soldier).

* A regular feature of ''Series/DoctorWho''. The Doctor arrives in a situation, announces that what's going on is nothing like what the local authority figure believes, and is immediately worked into the authority figure's theory as being part of the problem. However, the Doctor has been known to suffer from tunnel vision himself, for instance in "The Monster of Peladon", where he finds it hard to believe the Ice Warriors aren't the baddies.

* ComicBook/DoctorDoom simply cannot get it out of his head that Reed Richards was responsible for the accident that disfigured him. Being something of an egomaniac, he naturally assumes Richards thinks like him, and occasionally designs traps that would be impossible for Doom to escape... and that Richards just strolls out of.
* Lex Luthor once discovered evidence that Clark Kent is {{ComicBook/Superman}}... and promptly dismissed it, because why would a PhysicalGod use such a humble personality? A lot of his rage can be put down to Superman not acting the way Luthor would act with all that power, and it drives Luthor nuts.
* Hugo Strange projects his many, ''many'' neuroses onto {{ComicBook/Batman}}, certain that he only fights crime because he gets off on beating weaker people (Strange being a short, glasses-wearing psychiatrist who occasionally dresses as Batman).



[[AC:Jokes]]
* A woman suspects her husband is cheating on her. She takes advice from her friends, who tell her to look for AffairHair. When her husband comes home and she can't find, she's horrified and disgusted- her husband is cheating on her with a ''bald'' woman!




to:

* Literature/SherlockHolmes believes guesswork leads to this, refusing to discuss a case before he has all available data. He often has multiple theories before finding that out, going on what the newspapers say, but these are inevitably discarded before the end.




to:

** Redcloak believes O-Chul is hiding the location of the gate from him despite multiple torture sessions and every coercive spell he can think of. The fact that O-Chul ''doesn't know'' (the first five guardians of the Gates swore not to look for the gates' locations precisely in case this happened) isn't about to stop him.

[[AC:Fan Fiction]]
* ''Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse:'' The Element Bearers are utterly incapable of seeing Corona (also known as [[spoiler:Celestia]]) as anything but an arrogant, cruel, greedy monster who'd kill them all given half a chance. This backfires when they're [[EnemyMine forced to work together]], and the six of them think backstabbing the PhysicalGod who's agreed to work with them is a better idea than stopping the necromancer who's trying to become immortal. In fairness though, they're part of a culture that's been fed a thousand years worth of stories about how evil she is, and when they first she kidnapped some of their loved ones, on account of being completely insane. But even after she's cooled down somewhat, they still refuse to think she's not pure evil

* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'' Ryuko comes to believe that StudentCouncilPresident Satsuki Kiryuin was responsible for her father's death before the start of the series, since Satsuki claims to have knowledge about why it happened. She becomes so fixated on this that her flashbacks from when she barely saw the killer fleeing the scene start to shift so the figure resembles Satsuki, meaning that when [[spoiler:the ''real'' killer reveals herself it comes as quite a shock to her.]]
