** A third is Grünfeld Bach's view of [=LaCroix=]. Bach considers [=LaCroix=] a storybook monster, and expects him to show up to slaughter his way through the Society of St. Leopold if he pushes hard enough. However, [=LaCroix=] is a very human character - a petty, egotistic schemer with an ego the size of a country and nothing to back it up, who happily cowers in his tower and sends his patsies out to do the heavy lifting.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', King Cailan establishes himself as a great admirer of the Grey Wardens, and expresses his eagerness to fight alongside them to defeat the darkspawn like in all the stories he has read. Unfortunately for Cailan, ''Dragon Age'' is [[BlackAndGrayMorality not that kind of fantasy]]. Anybody who has read ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' and is aware that it was a great influence in this game will dub King Cailan "[[spoiler:King Redshirt III]]" after hearing him speak for about 10 seconds.

* ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'': Warren acts like he's the DoggedNiceGuy protagonist of a RomanticComedy. Sorry kid, but you are TheSmartGuy in a MagicalRealism mystery series, and your doggedness is skirting ''very'' close to the "creep"-line.

** Yet another example would be the vampire hunter Grünfeld Bach's view of the vampire that killed his father and grandfather, Sebastian [=LaCroix=]. Bach's narration refers to [=LaCroix=] as the "Archfiend" and seems to believe that if he raises enough of a ruckus [=LaCroix=] will come out and battle him, bloodied fangs and talons against blessed swords. In real life, [=LaCroix=] is a petty, impotent schemer with delusions of competence who is more than willing to stay behind locked doors and throw mooks and patsies (i.e. you) at Bach.

* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' has a few cases where characters new to the supernatural side of things think the world they are in works by common horror tropes. Most notable would be one of the thin-bloods, who thinks a full blood transfusion or killing the head vampire can cure him from vampirism. [[{{Jerkass}} The player can milk his gullibility for all it is worth.]] Another example would be when you get a mission to keep the zombie population at a local graveyard under control for a bit.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has an example that borders on EntertaininglyWrong - the Stormcloaks initially believe that the dragon at Helgen is controlled by the Legion, while the Legion believe that the Stormcloaks woke up a dragon to aid them in the war. Both believe it's far too much of a coincidence that it showed up right as Ulfric was about to be executed. The Blades think the dragon was awakened by the Thalmor and meant to prolong the civil war by saving Ulfric's life, and the Thalmor believe it's the Blades stirring up the Dragons too for whatever reason. All of them are wrong. It showed up because of ''you,'' and none of the earthly conflicts had ''anything to do with it''. Delphine hangs a massive lampshade on this when she learns that the Thalmor are clueless as well, basically saying "ironic, isn't it? All the old enemies blame each other for something that has nothing to do with any of them."
