(Do We Have This One?? I thought we must. Some of what we're calling Suspiciously Specific Denial is more like "suspiciously vehement denial," or falls under both.)

A character denies (or affirms) something so emphatically that it becomes a clue that they're lying. Can be played for comedy or drama.

Compare Saying Too Much, Suspiciously Specific Denial, Blatant Lies, Implausible Deniability, You Are What You Hate.

Up for Grabs.
