* Inverted in ''Videogame/YookaLaylee.'' In the [[CasinoPark Cashino]], the talking slot machines have races and other contests you can do for coins. They stress that the games aren't rigged in any way, clearly invoking this trope... except that they ''truly'' aren't rigged. Difficult, perhaps, but completely on level.

* In the fifth case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Trials and Tribulations'', the player ([[spoiler:who has been trained to look for suspiciously specific denials in this context after what happened in the previous game]]) may notice something strange about this exchange:
-->'''[[spoiler:Edgeworth]]:''' "Were you the one who killed [[spoiler:Elise Deauxnim?]]"
-->[[spoiler:'''Iris:''' "... No. I'm not the one who took her life.]]"
** As it turns out, [[spoiler:Iris framed herself to cover for the real killer.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Done extremely blatantly in the emails [[BigBad Bowser Jr]] sends to Beep-O and the party in ''VideoGame/MarioPlusRabbidsKingdomBattle'' when he [[ForgedMessage hacks the latter's email account.]] Indeed, not only does he say such obvious stuff as "Just take the totally non-spooky path leading from the gate that just opened and everything will work out just fine and you won't be killed." but he also tries to explain his evil laughter in much the same way: "Also, when I wrote 'muhahahaha' the second time I meant, er... 'You guys are really cool and I like you a lot and definitely don't wish you any harm'." Even the person who's email was hacked lampshades just how blatantly how out of character the messages were and comments how "You noticed it was hacked, right?"

Added DiffLines:

* One of the loading screens in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' reads "You are still a good person". Considering that this starts popping up after [[spoiler:Walker and by extension the player has unwittingly slaughtered forty civilians (including women and children) due to a misunderstanding]], this is a surprisingly TearJerker example.

** A more serious version happens in Mass Effect 1 when Garrus is talking about the Dr. Saleon case. Apparently, they had suspected Dr. Saleon of black-market organ trading, and brought in one of his employees for interrogation, who among other things was "very convinced that he still had his liver". There is no indication that the status of the employee's own organs was ever brought up beforehand.
