** [[{{Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS7E24AllGoodThings}} The final episode]] [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]] every aspect of the trope, with Picard traveling through 3 time periods. The present crew believe him outright. The future crew has doubts, since future!Picard is suffering from a brain disorder known to cause delusions, but he calls in some favors and they go along [[TrueCompanions out of a sort of familial duty]]. And in the past, having "just" arrived on the ''Enterprise'', he simply opts to not tell them at all and just starts barking out orders.

* ''{{ComicBook/Sabretooth}}'' has this with ''{{ComicBook/Deadpool}}'' in his 2016 solo series. Deadpool's memory is not good -to say the least. He doesn't remember killing his parents and mistakenly believes Creed did it. Creed decides to carry the burden -he felt guilty that he watched Wade kill his parents, but didn't stop him. Even when he thinks Wade is about to kill him, he only says that Wade has to trust him & that it's not what--, but Wade cuts him off to reveal he learned the truth.

*** He spends most of the fifth trying to convince the world Voldemort was back. Though it didn't help that the Ministry For Magic was deliberately working to discredit him.

* Mulder of ''Series/TheXFiles'' has a bad habit of this; when trying to enlist outside aid in dealing with a case (local police, FBI higher-ups, etc.) he makes sure to tell them ''exactly'' what he thinks is going on, no matter how insane, as opposed to sticking to the parts they're likely to believe.

He usually doesn't rant and rave, but the fact that he talks about these things like they're perfectly reasonable and the person he's talking to is just a close-minded idiot doesn't help his credibility.

* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', Jason Nesmith tries to tell his co-stars that the odd-looking fans at the convention were really aliens: "They were termites... or dalmatians!" They don't believe him at first, even when a couple of the Thermians (shapeshifted into humans) arrive.

Aside from the general ranting associated with this trope, he's also unshaven and disheveled, with alcohol on his breath, and the people he's trying to convince were already pissed at him for apparently blowing them off.

* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' shortly after the Gatewatch arrives on Amonkhet they see a person fleeing the guards and shouting to onlookers that everything they believe is a lie. Later on, after the narration switches to her perspective, Samut is kicking herself for thinking yelling in the street would accomplish anything. Although she has trouble convincing even her closest friend rationally - the lie they live is too immense to be easily put aside.

* In ''VideoGame/KathyRain'', the titular PlayerCharacter is caught red-handed by the local Sheriff after she has broken into [[spoiler:Father Isaac]]'s office and is rooting through his private stuff. The player can choose to have Kathy rattle off a frantic explanation about how she is actually trying to prove that [[spoiler:Isaac]] is behind [[spoiler:the kidnapping of Kathy's friend, Eileen]]. Alternatively, the player can outright {{Subvert|ed Trope}} the trope by choosing a more GenreSavvy response:

* In ''AVeryPotterSequel'', when Harry asks the guard how to get to platform nine and three quarters, the guard insists that it doesn't exist. Harry uses the trope nearly by name, and starts talking about his Hogwarts letter. When the guard starts to walk off, he yells, "Sir! Listen, please! A bird gave it to me!"
** Invoked from the flip side as well when the guard says that ''hundreds'' of kids have asked him the same question that day, and he refuses to believe it exists or there's anything worth looking into.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': {{Invoked|Trope}} by the antagonists in [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS6E4Orders "Orders"]]. [[spoiler:Fives, who has found out that all the clone troopers have mysterious chips in their brains, is drugged with a compound that increases his aggression and paranoia, so when he tries to tell others, like Anakin and Rex, about the chips, he's incapable of expressing himself coherently. It's revealed in the SequelSeries, however, that Rex ''did'' listen, however, and that he and a few others had their chips removed as a result.]]
