To whoever is asking the question, a more appropriate answer would probably be either a no, or maybe a maybe, or in some cases [[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder no answer at all]]. Instead, however, it's answered with a [[TitleDrop Blunt Yes]], or whatever else would be equivalent to "yes" in its own context (for example, if Alice asks "Have you no shame?" Bob saying "No" or "None!" would count). Normally followed by Alice's dumbfounded or dejected acceptance of Bob's answer.

Maybe this reflects on differences between the asker and the answerer in terms of views toward the subject they are discussing. Maybe it implies that the answerer has a very blunt personality, such as that of a DeadpanSnarker, for instance. Sometimes it could mean both, and by its very nature often does.

Often a subtrope of RhetoricalQuestionBlunder. Compare with InsultBackfire, since it is often caused by similar things. Often associated with BrutalHonesty. See also FlatWhat and LittleNo. Compare MathematiciansAnswer.

TruthInTelevision, of course, especially in online discussions, given the sheer diversity of opinions, and in turn, higher rate at which what one would consider an inappropriate response, another considers quite fitting.

** When Asuka suggests that Rei would kill herself if ordered to do so, she says yes.
** In a more comedic example, when Misato asks if Shinji considers her a slob, Shinji cheerfully says "That and lazy!"
* In ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', when Miura argues with Mashiro and Takagi over whether they should go into gag manga; Miura believes that if they have no serious stories in mind, they should just do as their editor says.
-->'''Mashiro''': We can change up our style and genre, but I still don't think humor is the best way to utilize Takagi's skills.
-->'''Miura''': ...!! Are you telling me that I'm wrong?
-->''BeatPanel''
-->'''Mashiro and Takagi''': Yes.
** In a similar case, Kosugi asks Nanamine if he thinks he's no good as an editor, and Nanamine says "Not in the slightest."
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** In the ''Naruto'' pilot, there is an interesting example, in which the blunt yes is ''in agreement with'' the speaker with the question. The eponymous character tells Kuroda about his mission, in which he's unable to return to his village of youkai until he makes a friend. When he remarks that it's a "dumb training exercise," with a smile on his face, Kuroda tells him "Yeah... really dumb," then tells him the only one he can trust is himself, surprising him.
** In the Viz translation of Kakashi Gaiden, during an argument over whether to break from the mission to save Rin, Obito asks Kakashi if he thinks emotion is nothing but a useless burden, and after a long pause, Kakashi says he does. Obito then decides to save Rin on his own and Kakashi asks Obito if he knows what happens to those who break the rules. Obito, who, unbeknownst to Kakashi, has learned about Sakumo's abandoning a mission to save his comrades, says "I do, and that's why the White Fang was a true hero."

-->'''Ryoko''': The more the distance between Nagato-san and Kyon-kun closes, the more it feels like they're moving further from me. And it's just... I hate it. It's lonely. I know, I know. I'm not protecting anyone. It's pure jealousy.
-->'''Haruhi''':''(places a hand on Ryoko's shoulder)'' Ryoko... ''(with a smile)'' Yeah, that's really dumb!
* In ''Manga/{{Saki Achiga-Hen}}'', this exchange between Izumi Nijou and Hiroko "[=FunaQ=]" Funakubo happens after Izumi loses badly in the semi-finals, and Hiroko mentions all the strong first-years who have come by..

Kurotsuchi momentarily responds as if he said no before realizing the actual answer.

-->'''Koizumi''': Sure, sure. You're just trying to say that you're not the culprit, aren't you?
-->'''Kuzuryuu''': Obviously. It's you lot who started this mutual killing business... it's got nothing to do with me...

** Nale gets two in rapid succession in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0913.html Strip 913]], when he says that he would rather have dealt with Malack by himself, and standing by his statement that he is his own man and wants nothing from [[spoiler:his father]].

* Oh, UsefulNotes/JoeBiden. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHdSahEsIC4#t=30s You classy man.]]
* UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln pulled this one off once. While meeting with "commissioners" sent by the Confederacy in the late states of [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar the war]], he explained in detail his basic approach to the war: the South was not permitted to secede in the first place. That led to this:
--> '''Commissioner''': You mean that we are rebels according to your view and we are all guilty of treason and liable to be hanged!
--> '''Lincoln''': Yes, that is so.
* In a 2008 [=TED=] talk about cell-phones and cool time-saving tips-and-tricks on how to get the most out of them, New York Times tech columnist David Pogue recounts being on the receiving end of an especially egregious one of these [[http://www.ted.com/talks/david_pogue_on_cool_phone_tricks.html#780000 here]] (time stamp 13m15s to skip to the relevant part, the specific example is about a minute further in, text of that part below).
--> '''Pogue''': So last year I went to Milan, Italy, and I got to speak to an audience of cellular executives from 200 countries around the world. And I said as a joke -- [[TemptingFate as a joke]], I said, "I did the math. Verizon has 70 million customers. If you check your voicemail twice a day, that's 100 million dollars a year. [[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder I bet you guys are doing this just to run up our airtime, aren't you]]?" No chuckle, they're like this (he nods, straight-faced).
