Related to RashomonStyle, except that instead of someone else's version of events clashing, it's the cold, unvarnished truth. Unlike UnreliableNarrator, we're led to believe that the visuals tell us what really happened. Unless there's a MindScrew going on.

* ''Webcomic/BasicInstructions'' has some (inverted) elements of this: The voiceover is usually sound advice, but the illustrations often show said advice [[ComicallyMissingThePoint misapplied as badly as possible]].

* In a {{Marvel}} UK ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformers Transformers Generation 1]]'' story, Octane tells Ratbat about how he bravely stood up to the vast Autobot onslaught only to be pushed back by overwhelming numbers. The images show him running like a coward from just two Autobots.

* ''Film/{{Beowulf 2007}}'': Beowulf claims a bunch of sea monsters attacked him during the race with Breca. We ''do'' see him fighting said sea monsters, but when he claims another sea monster dragged him down under the water, it's actually a beautiful mermaid that he ends up "plunging his blade into."

* Season 2 of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had Adam West tell the story of Miles Musket, the settler who allegedly founded Quahog with the help of a magic talking clam. West states that Musket was thrown overboard for "speaking his mind", while the flashback shows that Musket was an incredibly grating blabbermouth who the other settlers threw overboard just to preserve their own sanity.

* One ''Future Shocks'' strip had a man in a bar telling his life story to a stranger. The teller told of how he was a loving husband and father whose family were abducted by a warlord, and so he took revenge by entering the warlord's services as a blacksmith and making shoddy weapons, then running off on the eve of a major battle. The panels show that he was actually a cruel miser whose wife ran away, taking her kids with her. He beat his son to death, and the weapons he made were of substandard quality due to incompetence rather than design. The strip ends with him lying in an alley in a pool of blood, the stranger standing over him with a knife.
* The first strip in ''The Grievous Journey of Ichabod Azrael (and the Dead Left in His Wake)'' uses this is bit. The narrator says he heard that Ichabod's introduction to killing was when he killed 20 horsemen, but we see him killing one man in a duel. Later, the narrator relates a story about how Ichabod had a secret love who was able to calm his insane rage and dismisses it as nonsense, but the images show that that's exactly the case.

* Trivial and mildly amusing instance in ''[[FlashForward2009 Flash Forward]]'': Wedeck (the [=FBI=] boss) claims his vision of the future had him in a meeting (at 10pm?), while the visual was an overhead shot of him sitting in a restroom stall, pants down, reading the newspaper (apparently the sports section, from later dialogue). He later confessed the real story to Benford, adding that he'd emerged from his blackout to find another agent drowning in the urinal and in need of resuscitation (which Wedeck found embarrassing to admit having done).
