* A bug caused this in ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'' for a while. Early in the game, Claptrap attempts to open a door to somewhere at least somewhat warm and sheltered, and fails, leading to a brief monologue about how much it'll hurt when bullymongs take everyone apart. Occasionally, it was known to open just fine, at which point Claptrap would launch into his we're-all-going-to-die monologue anyway.

** Our heroes are [[HilaritySues sued]] after accidentally destroying a Gate holding back the SealedEvilInACan. Fortunately, they manage to get a "not guilty" verdict, though it's clear [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0284.html they weren't expecting it]]. Amusingly, while the rest of the cast does manage to take "yes" for an answer once they get over the DoubleTake, Haley Starshine, temporarily cursed to be TheUnintelligible, launches into a detailed rant about why they should have been found guilty under any sane legal code.

* Done surprisingly seriously in ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' when Emperor Grumm put Piggy in a WithUsOrAgainstUs situation by forcing him to go into a pit of suffering for a day before giving his decision. Piggy tried to avoid it by immediately declaring he sided with Grumm, but Grumm ''still'' demanded he go into the pit under threat of being disintegrated.

* In ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'', the Éowyn scene is parodied as the players (especially Aragorn) are more than happy to welcome her to the party, but the DM [[{{Railroading}} insists otherwise]]. He eventually just retcons the scene by explaining that Éowyn was just some crazy chick. [[spoiler:She later shows up in the FinalBattle, to the confusion of many.]]

* In a ''NewsRadio'' episode, Matthew asks Dave if he's being fired, and after Dave says no, Matthew doesn't hear it that way. As he begins to leave, he realizes his mistake and asks, "Were you just going to let me leave?" Dave nods mischievously, having fully expected him to not listen (he is the Spaz, after all).
