* [[Manga/OnePunchMan King's]] standard excuse for not being somewhere is that he was fighting monsters/raiding monster lairs. [[spoiler:He's telling the truth, in a way - he's a hardcore video gamer, and said monsters/lairs were in an RPG.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' has a RunningGag where a character will ask Timmy where he got his wished-for stuff from and get the quick response "Internet". See also the page quote.
** In one episode, while trying to explain why he was suddenly rich, he tried both an inheritance claim, and the usual claim, before settling on "I inherited the Internet!".

** It finally breaks down when Timmy's Dad asks him where he got ''the Internet'' from, at which point Timmy is reduced to stammering.
*** In that particular episode, Timmy's parents were suspicious of him because he recently wished for a bunch of things that were reported stolen on the news. When Timmy tries to prove his innocence later, the usual excuse breaks down again because he hooked himself up to a lie detector and they asked where the lie detector came from. At the end of the episode, when Timmy is proven innocent, the usual excuse works again.

stammering. In that this particular episode, case, Timmy's parents were suspicious of him because he recently wished for a bunch of things that were reported stolen on the news. When Timmy tries to prove his innocence later, the usual excuse breaks down again because he hooked himself up to a lie detector and they asked where the lie detector came from. At the end of the episode, when Timmy is proven innocent, the usual excuse works again.

* In a yonkoma omake in ''Manga/TouhouSuzunaanForbiddenScrollery'', [[{{Lilliputians}} Shinmyoumaru Sukuna]] uses the excuse "It's an effect of the Miracle Mallet" to explain away any weird occurance. A believable enough explanation when inanimate objects begin to move of their own accord, not so very believable when there are tiny bite marks in Reimu's food and Shinmyoumaru's mouth is stuffed.
