* In ''Film/TheAddamsFamily'', the main villain Debbie Jellinsky professes her love for Fester Addams through BlatantLies about her past (like saying she is a virgin while revealing her cleavage provokingly) and compliments about his sexiness, but Fester is too slow on the uptake to understand most of it until she just tells him she loves him.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', [=GLaDOS=] attempts to [[spoiler: kill Wheatley with a LogicBomb ("This...sentence...is...false!")[[note]]donthinkaboutitdonthinkaboutitdonthinkaboutit[[/note]]. Wheatley, however, is too obtuse to recognize it as a paradox ("Uh...true. I'll go true. Well, that was easy"). In comparison, the frankenturrets, ''Wheatley's own creations'', a combination of turret guns and '''boxes''', seize up upon hearing the same statement, and they're not supposed to even be fully sentient.]]

* Disney/SongOfTheSouth: Brer Rabbit uses reverse psychology (also known as BriarPatching) to trick [[BigBad Brer Fox]] into increasingly [[CruelAndUnusualDeath elaborate]] murder [[FlayingAlive methods]] until he decides to do what Brer Rabbit wants him to. Brer Bear is against it and wishes to just "knock his head clean off''. While Brer Bear ist too dumb to even realise what the Rabbit tries to do, his simple thinking also makes him immune to the trick, while the [[StupidEvil Fox]] who is far from the sharpest tool himself falls into it.

* In ''BaldursGate II: Shadows of Amn'', your party encounters a con man who [[LandmarkSale attempts to sell him a planar sphere that's just materialized spontaneously in the Slums]]. While the dialogue varies between [=NPCs=], Minsc has one of the best: he declines because [[ConsultingMisterPuppet according to Boo]] (his pet ''miniature giant space hamster''), the sphere is not a good buy, because -- get this -- it's too big to fit in even [[TheBigGuy Minsc's]] pocket.

* Subverted in ''TheTenthKingdom''. The village idiot repeatedly mentions that the dog Prince reminds him of someone, implying that he can sense the dog is actually the shape-shifted prince. Later when Tony asks him, it turns out he was thinking of a dog he knew when he was a kid, completely unrelated to the prince.
