->'''Gambol:''' You think you can steal from us and just walk away?!\\
'''The Joker:''' Yeah.
-->-- ''Film/TheDarkKnight''

To whoever is asking the question, a more appropriate answer would probably be either a "no", a "maybe", or in some cases [[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder no answer at all]]. Instead, however, it's answered with a 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.

May overlap with AtLeastIAdmitIt or ICanLiveWithThat.

Often a subtrope of RhetoricalQuestionBlunder, such as DoesThatSoundLikeFunToYou May be used as an ArmorPiercingResponse. 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.

!! Examples:

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** Shinji reacts to Misato's questions like this after being returned to NERV Headquarters in Episode four.
** 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?\\
'''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.
** A back-to-back double example: 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."
* In ''Manga/TheDisappearanceOfNagatoYukiChan'', Ryoko talks with Haruhi about Yuki and Kyon growing closer, and what it means for her, as Yuki's best friend and also friends with Kyon. After this exchange, Haruhi tells Ryoko that her friendships with Yuki and Kyon should be strong enough to withstand their having a fight.
-->'''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/SakiAchigaHen'', 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..
-->'''[=FunaQ=]:''' This year brought some amazing first-years like that, too, but… do you really rank yourself among them, Izumi?\\
'''Izumi:''' That's what I keep telling myself.
** In a much earlier scene, which takes place when Nodoka and her friends Shizuno and Ako are in elementary school.
--->'''Nodoka:''' ''(struggling to keep up)'' Shizu, Ako…! ''gulp'' You're going too fast… There's no need for running. Why sprint away all of a sudden? Are you kids?\\
'''Shizuno:''' YES, WE ARE!
** In ''Manga/SakiShinohayuDawnOfAge'', a blunt "no" happens when Kanna recruits her friends to form a mahjong club and defeat Hayari Mizuhara, who won the local tournament, defeating Kanna.
--->'''Kyouka:''' Are we supposed to beat [Hayari], too?\\
'''Kanna:''' [[BrutalHonesty Nah. You're just here to be my sparring partners]].\\
'''Kyouka:''' [[LampshadeHanging Can't you at least try to show some tact]]?
** The earliest case is in ''Manga/{{Saki}}'' between Saki and Koromo during the Nagano Qualifier Captains' match. Koromo is in the lead but Saki has begun a winning streak that allowed her to acquire enough points to make a comeback win possible.
--> '''Koromo''': Kiyosumi, do you think you can pull off a comeback?\\
'''Saki''': [[BadassBoast Yes, I'm going to win.]]
* In ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' Captain Hitsugaya is asked by Captain Kurotsuchi whether he ''really'' believes that Kurotsuchi's technicians monitoring the Precipice world could have made a mistake, and responds with a simple yes. Kurotsuchi momentarily responds as if he said no before realizing the actual answer.
* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Tashigi says this after saying that she believes Zoro is assuming she's weaker because she's a woman.
-->'''Zoro:''' What do you think I am, some kind of joke?\\
'''Tashigi:''' Yes.
** An inverted version happens later in Dressrosa, when one of the dwarves is giving Zoro directions (after having personally experienced [[NoSenseOfDirection how bad he is about that sort of thing]]).
--->'''Wicca:''' We're gonna turn left soon. Left is the side that you don't have your swords.\\
'''Zoro:''' You don't even trust me with "right" and "left"?!\\
'''Wicca:''' Not at all!
* In ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', the newly revived tankery club's first order of business is to search for tanks. When [[StudentCouncilPresident Anzu]] is asked if she doesn't know where they are, she cheerfully says that no, she does not know.
* In ''Anime/GundamBuildFightersTry'', Yuuma cheers up Fumina by suggesting that one day, her Gunpla building skills can be just as good as [[Anime/GundamBuildFighters Sei Iori's]]. When Sekai asks if that'll happen with him, Yuuma gives him a quick, blunt "No, never."
* In ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', Ushiro has a conversation late in the series with Kanji's father.
-->'''Kanji's father:''' [Kanji] was so much like his mother. He blamed me for [[DrivenToSuicide her death]], didn't he?\\
'''Ushiro:''' Yes.
* In ''Anime/YuYuHakusho'', Kurama has the life of a demon (who threatened his mother) completely in his hands. The demon begs, ending with this exchange:
-->'''Roto:''' You believe in mercy, don't you?\\
'''Kurama:''' No, I don't. (''kills him'')
* In ''FairyTail'', after [[spoiler:Gray ends his infiltration of the Avatar cult to stop them from "purifying" a town by killing everyone there]], one of his former colleagues asks him WasItAllALie. His response?
-->"Of course it was, you idiot! You think I could ever be buddy-buddy with murderers like you?"
** In Chapter 516, Igneel gives this answer when asked by [[spoiler:Natsu about whether his Dragon Seed and Demon Seed merging]] is fatal.
-->'''Igneel:''' Yes. You will die.
* ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife''
** After the siblings defeat Kurami, she remains convinced that they, like her, used magic to cheat by colluding with another race.
--->'''Kurami:''' You're not going to tell me that Imanity beat elf magic unaided, are you?\\
'''Sora:''' Sure I am. It's the truth.
** Later on, the siblings recruit Kurami and her elf friend, Feel for their plan to challenge the Warbeasts. Stephanie is honestly surprised that Feel, an elf noble whose family has served in the government for generations [[spoiler:and keeps Kurami's family as slaves]] would risk a great deal to [[spoiler:free the slaves]] and doesn't seem bothered by helping the enemy.
-->'''Stephanie:''' Are you okay with this, Fil-san? Helping us could lead to the destruction of Elven Garde.\\
'''Feel:''' I'm okay with anything as long as Kurami doesn't get hurt. I honestly don't care in the slightest about my family, and even thought it would be faster if the whole country would just up and vanish. ''(giggles)''
** Kurami approaches Sora, and points out that since all of his and Shiro's previous victories have been by the skin of their teeth, Kurami thinks they can only succeed against the Eastern Union if their plan goes flawlessly. Sora can't promise that, but points out that his teamwork with Shiro enables them to win all the time because they can cover for the other if they make a mistake.
--->'''Kurami:''' Can you really be sure you won't make a single mistake?\\
'''Sora:''' Not really.
* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'':
** The morality of a God of Destruction is easily summed up by this exchange between Beerus and Goku:
--->'''Goku:''' Are billions of lives just playthings for your amusement?\\
'''Beerus:''' Yes. I ''am'' a god. What is more important, one backwater planet or a battle between gods? It's not even a question.
** After receiving numerous warnings from Beerus and the Supreme Kais to behave himself and not make [[TopGod Zen'O]] angry, Goku asks them if he really looks like that rude of a person. Everyone present immediately replies "Yes, you do" in unison.
* ''Manga/BloomIntoYou'':
** Touko has spent her entire life trying to emulate her late older sister, Mio. When she learns from one of Mio's old classmates that [[spoiler:Mio wasn't anything close to being the honor student other people thought she was]], she's deeply shaken and discusses it with Yuu.
-->'''Yuu''': Do you have to be someone else?
-->'''Touko''': Of course. What's the point of being who I am now?
** Later on, Yuu asks her friend Koyomi [[spoiler:to change the ending of the play that they're working on, since she realizes Touko sees the parallels between herself and the protagonist, and Yuu wants Touko to be able to be herself, rather than imitate someone else]]. Touko's best friend, Sayaka asks why Yuu did this, at which point Yuu explains herself, resulting in the following exchange. [[spoiler:Possibly unbeknownst to Yuu, Sayaka actually agrees with her desire to change Touko]].
-->'''Yuu''': In the end, this is just me being selfish.
-->'''Sayaka''': ...You're right. It's selfish.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''Comicbook/{{Bone}}'':
-->'''[[MrViceGuy Phoney Bone]]''': So a couple a' shady business deals went sour… is that any reason to run the most beloved Bone in Boneville out of town on a rail?\\
'''[[OnlySaneMan Fone Bone]]''': Yes.
* In ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'', it's fairly common for people to ask whether a dead "unsaved" person has gone to hell, or whether they themselves will go to hell, and the answer is yes. The following is an exchange between star baseball player Frank Stone and his gardener Oscar after Frank learns that he's dying of cancer; keep in mind that Oscar got in trouble for mentioning his religion around Frank before.
-->'''Frank Stone:''' I know you'll tell me the truth. Am I going to Hell?\\
'''Oscar:''' Yes, but you don't have to.
* [[ComicBook/NewGods Big Barda]], in one ''ComicBook/BoosterGold'' comic:
-->'''Barda:''' What is everyone making such a fuss about? It's just a dragon!\\
'''Booster:''' "Just"? What? You think you can just stroll up to it and punch it in the mouth?\\
'''Barda:''' Yes.
* As shown by the current page image, Scrooge [=McDuck=] tells his old friend President Teddy Roosevelt that he refuses to sell his mountain despite it being in the way of the Panama Canal's way in Chapter 10 B: ''The Sharpie of the Culebra Cut'' of ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck''. He also knows Scrooge well enough that he really shouldn't have been surprised by the answer.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* In ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'', at the end of the "Mortal Karnage" arc, Jason tells his mother that he's come to realize that video games are only a waste of his childhood, as a ploy to convince her that he's mature enough to have the Mortal Karnage cartridge back.

'''Andy:''' Oh yes, I can.

'''Natsu:''' Yes, that weak mage only hides behind her spirits and always complains about her rent, so we should teach her a lesson on how a weak mage should act with her superi-([[BewareTheNiceOnes Wendy]] [[TalkToTheFist slaps him]]).
* In ''Fanfic/TheStalkingZukoSeries'', Katara talks with [[NobleBigot Pakku]] about his (and the Northern Water Tribe's) opposition to interracial marriages, something he thinks the South should adopt. Katara obvious opposes this, since she's secretly going out with Zuko, and her brother is in a relationship with Suki.
-->'''Katara''': Are you saying that their love doesn't count just because the two people involved are from different nations?
-->'''Pakku''': Of course it doesn't count! It is merely lust that is allowed to run rampant.

'''Shinri:''' Is there anything to live for?\\
'''Shizuru:''' Natsuki wouldn't forgive me if I died. So I will live. I'm not asking your permission.\\

'''Shizuru:''' Yes. Because Natsuki loves me.
* ''Fanfic/OneYear''
** Subverted when [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Yu]] asks his old friend Kaoru, who's finally achieved his goal of getting onto the basketball team but has to work hard to keep his spot, whether it's worth the effort. Kaoru's response, "It can be," is significantly less confident than Yu had expected.
** Played straight when Kaoru, having done poorly on the first midterms and is in danger of being dropped from the team, asks if grades are really all that important. Kenji, who's one of the top students in his grade and ([[{{Foil}} unlike Kaoru]], believes you can accomplish almost anything if you try hard enough), says that grades are important, since you're a student first and an athlete second.

'''Heimdall:''' Good. (Leaves, so they can open the gate themselves.)

'''Bill:''' Yeah. I mean, a place that take a little note from my hand from LA on Monday, to give it to my sister in New Jersey on Wednesday, for 42 cents? Well let me be the first to say that I would be THRILLED if America's healthcare system was anywhere near as functional as the post office.

* An interview on ''Series/TheLateShowWithDavidLetterman'' led to some really amusing inversions; Creator/JohnnyDepp was on the show to promote ''Film/PublicEnemies'' and when asked how he thought the film came out, he admitted he hadn't watched it.

'''Depp:''' Not remotely, no.\\
'''Letterman:''' Is that right?\\
'''Depp:''' Truly. Honestly.\\
