-->'''Comic Book Guy:''' Of the four "Star" franchises, ''[[Franchise/StarWars Wars]]'', ''[[Franchise/StarTrek Trek]]'', ''[[Franchise/{{Stargate}} -gate]]'', and ''[[Series/StarSearch Search]]'', "-gate" is easily my third favorite.

* ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'': when Galinda tries to give Elphaba her unwanted hat in "Dancing Through Life", the best compliment she can give is "it's really, uh, sharp". For reference, it's the pointy black hat that later becomes a key component of Elphaba's outfit as the Wicked Witch of the West, so that's probably the best thing [[TastesLikeDiabetes Galinda]] could say about it.

* For a time, ''AttackOfTheShow'' ran promos of this sort, with generic blurbs from industry publications. "TV Guide raves: 'It's a [...] show.' See the show that Entertainment Weekly called 'on at 7 (6 central)'!"

* Creator/{{Seanbaby}}'s ''{{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}}'' page featured this, regarding Lex Luthor's dramatic introductions of the Legion of Doom. As most of the Legion of Doom are [[VillainousUnderdog pretty]] [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway unimpressive]], Seanbaby theorizes that, after running through the three Legion members with actual powers, he'd swiftly fall into this.

A character is called upon to say something positive about a subject or a person, but they can't think of ''anything'' nice to say that wouldn't be blatantly untrue. Rather than lying, they give some neutral statement that would make CaptainObvious proud, and dress it up like a compliment. Alternatively, the resident [[DeadpanSnarker smartass]] may deliberately quip this way in order to [[DamnedByFaintPraise damn with faint praise]].
