** Mal in "The Train Job": When Mal gets questioned about what he was doing on the train, he lies and says he was going there looking for work, saying that he heard a man in town had an opening. The questioning sheriff seems incredulous, as Mal didn't seem to know the situation on the ground. Specifically, that he didn't know the man he claimed had a job for him had killed himself several months back. Mal pauses for a second before asking "So... would his job be open?"

** Lyanna Mormont. As contrary as it may seem, her honesty and bluntness are actually even more effective coming from the mouth of a ten-year-old girl than they might be from an adult.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The premise of the TARDIS cloaking system works on the fact that most people, when presented with a large blue police box incongruously parked in the middle of a major tourist attraction or thoroughfare, will simply ignore it. When you land said blue box in the middle of the Oval Office, and then while having a small army of Secret Service agents train their guns on you, what do you do? You sit in the President's chair and start barking orders like you own the place. [[RunningGag And demand a Fez]].

** In the Pandorica Opens, the Doctor is confronted by a fleet of countless enemies of his closing in, with no plan or method of stopping them. His solution is to walk out in front of them all and 'admit' he has no plan whatsoever, and then daring them to attack him, reminding them all of what happened last time. Ultimately subverted [[spoiler: when it turned out they were all allied together to trap him]] but the fact that the Doctor even tried this, much less that it seemingly worked, qualifies.



** The Twelfth Doctor faces a dilemma in "The Witch's Familiar": he's a prisoner in the heart of the Dalek Empire. What's his escape plan? [[spoiler:Tipping Davros out of his wheelchair offscreen, hijacking it, rolling up to the Daleks' central chamber with a stolen gun and waiting for them to let "Davros" in. He then gets surrounded by Daleks, mocks them to their faces, gets shot about twenty times--''then'' reveals Davros made his chair immune to Dalek fire. Then he starts making demands.]] ''And it works''. Oh, and this is an episode after the time he brought a tank and electric guitar to an axe fight.

** Twelve promised to stay on Earth, guaring the vault, and orders Nardole to keep him to his word. When Nardole actually tries to stop him leaving, though, he deflects the criticism by fliping between pointing out that he's the one who gave the order in the first place, and *criticizing Nardole's attempts at enforcing it*.

** Played straight in "Emissary" when Kira claimed the station was heavily armed to scare away a Cardassian attack force. It worked, and the station turned out to be armed with sensor-deceiving illusions. Later inverted in "The Way of the Warrior" when a Klingon attack force is given [[CallBack the exact same]] warning, and the commanders assume that it's an attempt to intimidate them into leaving backed by more illusions. Unfortunately, they forgot that Sisko knows enough about Klingons to know you can't bluff one with a mere threat of violence. He's not bluffing. It goes POORLY for the Klingons.

** ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' has several of these. The straightest example would be the genetically enhanced "Jack Pack" escaping from their space age looney bin and traveling halfway across the galaxy to one of the most secure outposts in the quadrant in the middle of a war, simply by donning Starfleet uniforms, making one of their own an Admiral, and having him answer any and all questions with "That's a stupid question".

** Sansa calls Ramsay a bastard to his face. When he protests that King Tommen made him a true-born, Sansa coldly rebuffs it by calling Tommen another bastard.

* Walter White from ''Series/BreakingBad'' uses this trope as part of his cover. A milquetoast high school chemistry teacher with a DEA Agent as his brother-in-law secretly being a drug kingpin? One moment is when Hank, said DEA brother-in-law, is helping him move some stuff. One of the bags is extremely heavy, and Hank asks why. Walt says it's filled with half a million in cash, which it is. Hank laughs it off and moves onto another topic.
