This is a StockPhrase said, often by the OnlySaneMan or DeadpanSnarker, when they've just heard about the [[WhatAnIdiot stupid]] or outlandish ZanyScheme. In some cases, it is not even a scheme that they are snarking at, but the [[SurroundedByIdiots sheer idiocy of their world]]. Compare MyGodYouAreSerious, which may follow it if said OnlySaneMan actually believed that the person in question was kidding. See also IsThisAJoke.

It may also be a reaction to something bad happening, making it somewhere between OhCrap and ThisIsGonnaSuck. Conversely, it may be a reaction to the characters being challenged by a ridiculously weak opponent... possibly leading to a reveal that the opponent [[TookALevelInBadass isn't so weak after all]].

TruthInTelevision, naturally.


[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
%%* ''Manga/GetBackers'' episode "The Animal Transformation of the Beastmaster"
* [[MetaGuy Chisame Hasegawa]] tends to utter this in some form or other in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''.
* Kyon from ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'', at least in the dub.
* Anytime you hear the phrase "Joudan ja nai wa yo!" screamed (in Manga/RanmaOneHalf, particularly by Akane) is basically this, as it literally translates into you "You've got to be kidding (or joking with) me!"
* During the Tachicomatic Days section of episode 3 of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', the Tachicoma utters this when it looks up to see a huge tank about to land on it.
* Ryuuji in the Festival Arc of ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'', when [[spoiler: he finds out Taiga's father won't be coming to see her in any of the school's activities.]]
* ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'': the titular character and Sasuke say this in a filler episode when they see Kakashi is wearing a mask even on hot spring.
* Crocodile from ''Manga/OnePiece'' uses this phrase after witnessing Luffy's idea to fight him, which included him swallowing a barrel of water to protect it, since water canceled out his NighInvulnerability of being able to turn into sand to evade attacks.
** Then there's a more comical example in the Skypiea arc. Faced with a choice of four doors, Luffy says after they've entered that it may be like a game; pick the right door, you get a prize, and pick the wrong one..."then you fall off the island". Usopp panics, as the island they're on is 10,000 meters in the air, and Sanji dismisses it as absurd. Then they reach the end of the tunnel...and find that while the other three paths go straight forward, theirs plunges straight down, out of sight beneath clouds. Amidst the [[WildTake Wild Takes]], Usopp says this line.
** Another comical example from the Enies Lobby arc. When the Straw Hats and Franky manage to make it to the heart of the bad guys' lair to rescue their kidnapped friend, one of their adversaries, Fukuro, shows up to inform them that their friend is wearing Sea Prism Stone handcuffs, which are not only unbreakable but serve as a PowerNullifier for her. The only way to remove them was with the key, which he shows them. Then literally everyone has this reaction when he informs them that his key might not be the right one.
* Faye in ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' yells this at the end of her backstory when she learns [[spoiler:the doctor she had started to fall for has saddled her with a massive debt in addition to her huge health care bill]].
* ''Anime/SonicX'': In the episode "An Enemy in Need," this is Amy's reaction to Knuckles when he, having [[GullibleLemmings once again been tricked into believing Eggman will change his ways]], saves Eggman from her:
-->'''Amy''': Knuckles, you have ''got'' to be kidding me! How many more times are you gonna fall for Eggman's tricks?!

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'': In ''[[Comicbook/LegionOfSuperHeroes Legion of Three Worlds]]'', this is Comicbook/{{Superboy}}-Prime's reaction upon discovering the 31st Century's Superman Museum.
* In the third issue of ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInThe8thGrade'', ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} uses a meteor rock to try to gain new powers, but most of them are hilariously useless.
-->'''Supergirl:''' You gotta... be kidding. The power to overcook waffles...? How is that even a power?
* In Franchise/{{Superman}}/Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story ''Comicbook/WarWorld'', Superman has this reaction when Mongul--who is blackmailing him into retrieving an artifact--reveals where the Crystal Key is:
-->'''Mongul:''' Why, of course — It is hidden on the fifth planet from the sun of the star-system Cygnus! Are you at all familiar with the system?\\
'''Superman:''' Mongul, you've got to be kidding! The fourth planet from the sun in that system is New Mars — the home of my former Justice League buddy, J'onn J'onzz!\\
'''Mongul:''' (grinning) Yes... I know.\\
'''Superman:''' (thinking) Yeah... I'll just bet you do!
* People have often said this about Comicbook/ThePunisher. He himself has said it only twice in Creator/GarthEnnis' run in ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'':
** In "In The Beginning", Frank has to fight Pittsy the mob enforcer for over a dozen pages. The nutcase manages to blow off one of Frank's ribs, then attempts to tear a lung out through the hole. Frank retaliates by throwing him out a fifth-story window onto a metal picket fence. Then jumping out after him and ''{{Goomba Stomp}}ing'' him, driving three fence spokes three inches through his torso. Two pages later, Pittsy not only manages to tear the fence loose, '''but goes looking for Frank with it sticking out of him.'''
--->'''Frank Castle''': ''You have to be fucking kidding me.''\\
(Gives Pittsy a BoomHeadshot. With a shotgun. At arm's reach.)\\
''Next step's a reflex action. So's the next one. Got to be.''\\
(GrossUpCloseUp of Pittsy's shotgunned face)
*** Pittsy of course dies, but the reader doesn't get to see if Frank had to shoot him '''''again.''''' [[spoiler:Actually, Frank states two pages earlier that he's down to three shots. One is used on a mook forced to provide cover for the arc's BigBad, and the second on Pittsy's face. The third was used for... [[KilledOffForReal other purposes]].]]
** In "The Long, Cold Dark", after Frank had captured his nemesis [[ScaryBlackMan Barracuda]], shot, beaten and electrocuted him[[labelnote:*]] His balls, specifically, wired to a car battery. For over an hour. Well, Barracuda ''did'' kidnap and threaten Castle's infant daughter hoping to piss him off enough to put up a good fight - BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, ''indeed''.[[/labelnote]] and left him wrapped in iron chains in the boot of his truck while he attended to other matters. It's all too much for 'Cuda, who just snaps, [[BreakingTheBonds breaks the chains through sheer strength]] and barrels out.
---> '''The Punisher''': ''"You have got to be fucking kidding me."''\\
(Barracuda arms himself)\\
''...was the thought that came to mind.''

-->'''[[spoiler:James Gordon]] Batman:''' I'm Batman.\\
''(long {{Beat}})''\\
'''Damian:''' You have got to be kidding me.
* In Marvel's "Exiles: Day of Now and Then", Blink says this when Sabertooth shows her Weapon X's version of the Timebreakers' Timebroker's hologram: a beauty of woman.
* In ''ComicBook/BlackMagick'' #9, Alex shares the results of her scrying spell with Rowan. When Rowan sees that the ashes from the ritual formed Aira's sigil, she immediately blames them for what's going on, but Alex counters that the spell actually revealed Aira ''isn't'' involved, which Rowan angrily refuses to accept. All the events of the past week catch up to her and she breaks down before Alex can finish explaining, with Alex then convincing the mentally and physically exhausted Rowan to hit the hay.

** Miss Valentine has this reaction when Luffy uses Moonwalk to follow her into the air, she floating with her Kilo-Kilo Fruit powers.

* John Crichton on ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', more than once. Not always very sensibly either: once he says "Aeryn, honey, you have got to be kidding me" on the discovery that she objects to serious drug abuse. And no, he wasn't [[SarcasmMode being sarcastic]].
* ''Series/{{The Office|US}}'': Kevin reacts this way to Jim's declaration that he's single and Pam saying that they're "good friends" at the start of season 4. [[spoiler: He's right.]]
* On ''Series/MonsterGarage'', a variation ("You've gotta be kidding me!") was used almost OnceAnEpisode by The Big Schwag during the final challenge.
* ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' has this in episode 16, "Just Like Me", from Black Ranger Will after SixthRanger Tyzonn shows up dressed like him.
* Dillon from ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' reacts this way when he opens up a refrigerator, revealing a cannon primed and ready to blast him--just so [[CrazyAwesome Dr. K]] can ''prove a point''. [[TheDragon Tenaya 7]] also reacts this way [[IronicEcho later in the episode]] when the same fridge cannon is about to blast her and end her AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs. A later episode also has Tenaya utter the line when she sees the ridiculous-looking Nozzle-Bot that [[BigBad Venjix]] created.
* A contestant on ''Series/Wipeout2008'' asked another how he was the final 4 on the Sweeper when he had injured his knee in the prior round. Said player is [[MadeOfIron Yoshi Sudarso]], [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Blue Dino Charge Ranger...]]
* ''Series/WireInTheBlood'' (TV special): Dr. Tony Hill literally says this when set up and busted for possession of cocaine in his car (after he has pried around too much for the Texas locals). Unusually, ''everyone else'', including the cops, also acknowledges how ridiculous the charge is, but they go through with the drop-charges-if-you-buzz-off-now spiel nevertheless.
* ''Series/BurnNotice'', 5x10, when a duped bad guy sees Michael, out of cover and alive.
* Uttered several times by Tom Servo in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', usually when witnessing a spectacular SpecialEffectFailure.
** Crow lays a big one on Servo when the latter claims Film/MrBNatural is male, and that everyone should follow "his" lifestyle. Crow later says it when TV's Frank will be an "impartial" judge in a contest between the SOL and Forrester.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''
** Plenty of occasions throughout the show. Done for RuleOfThrees in "My Heart Will Go On".
** This is Lilith's reaction to the prophet [[SpecialPersonNormalName Chuck]].
* Elliot Stabler of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' sometimes reacts this way to the weird cases he deals with, such as the woman who got hammered despite not drinking a drop. (She took the alcohol up her...[[{{Squick}} you know...]])
* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Seeing Red", Buffy says this when Warren escapes from her with a jet pack.
* A common reaction by the contestants when a sabotage is revealed in ''Series/CutthroatKitchen''. It's also been done by Alton or judges in response to a dish.
* ''Series/Supergirl2015'':
** In episode [[Recap/Supergirl2015S2E7TheDarkestPlace "The Darkest Place"]], this is Alex's reaction to finding out that [[Comicbook/JimmyOlsen James]] is secretly the Guardian, National City's newest costumed crimefighter.
** In [[Recap/Supergirl2015S1E1Pilot the pilot episode]], ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} makes her debut attempting to save a fallen plane. When she sees that the plane is about to hit a bridge, she shouts, "Oh come on!"
* On ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', [[TheCasanova Tony]] gets this look whenever he has his eyes on the GirlOfTheWeek, only to find out that she has her eyes on [[NerdsAreSexy McGee]]. Or [[SilverFox Gibbs]].

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* The normal reaction that the reigning World Champion will have when the music plays of the current holder of the Money in the Bank briefcase. [[Wrestling/JohnCena For the most part]], [[Wrestling/TheUndertaker this]] [[Wrestling/{{Edge}} will]] [[Wrestling/JeffHardy lead]] [[Wrestling/ChrisJericho to]] [[Wrestling/ReyMysterio the]] [[Wrestling/RandyOrton championship]] [[Wrestling/CMPunk changing]] [[Wrestling/TheBigShow hands]] [[Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio without]] [[Wrestling/DanielBryan much]] warning.
* This was the reaction at the 2014 '''''Wrestling/RoyalRumble''''' those in the ring had when Los Matadores arrived thinking it was one of them only to learn it was [[PintsizedPowerhouse El Torito]], much to the dismay of the [[Wrestling/{{Fandango}} guy who got eliminated]], even the announcers had this response.
* This is also the reaction whenever a wrestler performs a signature move of another wrestler, especially when they think they can copycat Wrestling/TheUndertaker. [[Wreslting/TheRock You]] [[Wrestling/RandyOrton know]] [[Wrestling/CMPunk who]] [[Wrestling/{{Edge}} are]] [[Wrestling/TripleH talking]] about.
* There were two matches that involved Wrestling/TheBigShow where the ring actually broke while getting superplexed, first in 2003 by Wrestling/BrockLesnar and in 2011 with Wrestling/MarkHenry. Wrestling/{{Tazz}} let out his [[OhCrap expression]] with his choice words..
--> '''Tazz''': [[PrecisionFStrike Holy (BLEEP)]].
* The reaction of Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin, Wrestling/OwenHart, and [[Wrestling/DaveyBoySmith the British Bulldog]] to Wrestling/MickFoley's debut as Dude Love.
* Announcers often say this during awesome high-risk spots. Don West was a frequent offender.

* As noted, sports announcers will use "You have got to be kidding me" or permutations of it during pivotal moments in an event. But the announcers of the New Orleans-Minnesota game on January 14, 2018 had opposing emotions when Vikings QB Case Keenum's 63-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs with ten seconds left in the game sent the Vikings to the NFC Championship. The Vikings announcers (KFAN) were yelling "Are you kidding me?!" in delirious jubilation while the Saints announcer (WWL) delivered the same line with stressed disillusionment.

* A recurring phrase in [[TheBible the Letter to the Romans]] that Paul answers a few rhetorical questions with translates literally as "Let it not be", but in connotation means something more like "Are you INSANE!?"

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}} Bites'', the text for Were-Muskrats is "+4 vs. Werewolves, who cannot BELIEVE this...".

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Blood}} 2: The Chosen'':
--> '''Telemarketer:''' Uhm, good morning, afternoon, evening, Mister Cal-Eeb. I'm with a market research firm and we're doing a survey on computer games, [[BlatantLies this call is not an attempt to sell you anything]]. First question: [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall are you currently or have you ever been a character in a computer game?]]\\
'''Caleb:''' You've gotta be kidding.
** Caleb utters the line again at the beginning of the second chapter, when Gideon once again crashes the subway train Caleb was riding on into another one.
* ''VideoGame/{{inFAMOUS}}'' has Cole say this when he gets a load of Sasha.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames'': "How about a kiss, for luck?"
* ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'': This is the reaction [=GLaDOS=] has when you drop one of her cores into an incinerator.
-->'''[=GLaDOS=]:''' You are kidding me. Did you just stuff that Aperture Science [[BuffySpeak Thing We Don't Know What It Does]] into an Aperture Science Emergency Intelligence Incinerator?
* ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'':
** When you try to start the core transfer at the end of "The Escape", [=GLaDOS=] incredulously remarks "Core Transfer? Oh, you are kidding me."
** [[spoiler: Wheatley]] has this to say during the final boss battle, after you manage to survive [[spoiler: the booby-trap he placed on the "Stalemate Resolution Button"]]: "What, [[WhyWontYouDie are you still alive]]? [[ThisCannotBe You are joking! You have got to be kidding me!]]"
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': Lightning summoning Odin for the first time cues the following quote just before he tries to bisect [[TagAlongKid Hope]]. Bonus points for snarking her sudden role as the BadlyBatteredBabysitter after they were separated from Sazh and Vanille prior to the summoning.
--> ''This cannot be happening.''
* Variations happen twice in ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. First, when Gaz hears that TheSquad's extraction point has just become compromised and they have to fight through a virtual army downhill to the secondary one ''before the chopper leaves without them'', he lets out the anguished: "Oh, he's gotta be taking the piss!" A few levels later, Price, Soap, and Griggs fight their way to the final bunker door [[RaceAgainstTheClock under extreme time pressure]] and the door begins to open veeeeerryyyy slooowlyyy. Griggs: "Oh, you gotta be shittin' me!" Cue [[DeadpanSnarker snarks]] from Price and Gaz on the comms. In ''Black Ops'' Hudson says the quote verbatim when told the only way to escape a pursing Spetznaz hit-squad that wants him, his partner and their prisoner dead is to jump off the roof of the building they're all standing on.
* In the very beginning of ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'' the main heroine Jade finds out that the power company cut off power feed to her house for nonpayment. Oh, yeah, she finds it out ''when the defensive force field over her house dies in the middle of an alien invasion''. Jade is apparently a very polite and temperate girl so the worst she has to say over the situation is YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe.
* Shepard utters this exact line in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'''s Overlord DLC when the huge satellite dish they just disabled starts collapsing. While they're still standing on it.
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', the Reapers are going to ground, wiping the floor with their [[WaveMotionGun giant laser beams]].
--->'''Garrus:''' Did we just get shot at by a Reaper?!\\
'''James:''' (as the party runs ''towards'' it) You've ''got'' to be kidding!
* The ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' series uses this at least once per scene. Often said by rogueish protagonist Nathan Drake as he suddenly finds himself face-to-face with a tank, or a helicopter, or a slimy zombie-like thing, or a dude with a humongous gun. Or even just another wall that must be scaled.
* Zidane of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' says this almost word-for-word when the Armodullahan appears out of nowhere in an enclosed space. To his credit, he does start running ''before'' saying the line.
* In the [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater MGS3]] Secret Theater Video, Metal Gear Sigint, Naked Snake ([[spoiler: aka Big Boss]]) says it at the end after [[spoiler: Sigint gets the Big Boss rank from President Lyndon B. Johnson]].
* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', Raiden says this exact phrase right before the final boss powers up. Odds are the player will say the same thing at this scene.
* Speaking of ''Metal Gear'', Snake has a habit of being utterly blindsided by his mission control's wackier information regarding the other fighters in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': The [[BrattyHalfPint Scout]] on the losing team sometimes says this.
* Travis Touchdown in ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'': "Ya gotta be shittin' me!"
* Kyle Katarn in ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Jedi Knight]]'', when he sees just how far he's got to jump to get to his goal. The player probably had a similar reaction: it is a ''long'' way over a ''hell'' of a drop.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}} 3'', after blowing up an oil rig and jumping to safety, the resulting wave towers over him, and he simply quips "...really?"
* Both AWACS Thunderhead and one of the allied tanks in ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'' have this reaction in the "Desert Lightning" mission, after the enemy manages to sneak a ''battleship'' into the river near their fallen airfield.
* [[{{Tsundere}} Sheena Fujibayashi]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' is very fond of this line when she gets flustered, such as if Lloyd catches her playing with children and Luin and comments how cute this makes her look.
** It's also what she'll say if an enemy lands a [[CriticalHit critical blow]] on her in battle.
** She gets an epic one in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' after deftly avoiding a trap... only to land squarely on another one.
* Mr. Sandman's Title Defense in ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' Wii upon seeing Little Mac has taken not only his title, but also his fans.
* In the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance UpdatedRerelease of ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER|1}}'', when Teddy, Ninten and Ana hear a robot monster approaching, Teddy says, "You've got to be kidding me!", and a HopelessBossFight ensues.

-->'''Ryuto''': Wait, someone else is with him.\\
'''Chou-Chou''': Oh, you're right. (pauses, then says in disbelief) You're crappin' me!
* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' this is Junpei's reaction to TheReveal that [[spoiler: during the whole Nonary Game they were ''not'' on a ship but inside Building Q]].
* In ''Rose Riddle: The Fairy Tale Detective'' this is Rose's reaction to Prince Charming's statement that he flew to her on the wings of love and is willing to marry her that very minute.

* This is Ginger's reaction in ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' when [[spoiler:Linda Knight]] shows up as her "training partner".

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* The phrase is stated by Charlie in WebAnimation/CharlieTheUnicorn 2, when he finds out the journey to save the world from 1000 years of darkness was actually a trap to steal his television.
* The ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'' version of ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'' has Moriarty utter this phrase when Film/IronMan [[ItMakesSenseInContext shoots a tank missile at him]]. Made funnier if you've seen their version of [[SelfReferentialHumor Iron Man]]. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poDaiYKJFlo here]].
--->'''Iron Man:''' Tank missile!
--->'''Moriarty:''' You've got to be kidding me.
--->''[[StuffBlowingUp *Balcony explodes*]]''.
* Yami in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' in episode 30, "Sore", when his opponent appears to be none other than [[Franchise/{{Saw}} Jigsaw]].
** Not to mention when Yugi realizes that Jaden challenged him to a rap battle, and he accepted it.
** Or Yami's reaction in the pilot when he sees Kaiba's holographic duel arena. "Okay, seriously, you've got to be [BEEP]ing kidding me. Who wastes all that money on something like that?"
* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', the Emperor reacts this way to many things. Most notably:
** Blood Angels' and Necrons' alliance:
-->'''''[[AC:The Blood Angels and Necrons did WHAT?]]'''''
** The sheer disbelief at seeing his Custodes' current state of (un)dress uniform makes him spend several minutes just dumbstruck from the sheer shock.
-->'''''[[AC:Holy shit. What in the name of Terra on fucking rollerskates is this? [...] This shit is so surreal. Am I on drugs?]]'''''
* Done by Washington in ''[[Machinima/RedVsBlue Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction]]'' after he discovers that even the BigBad's computer pronounces "E.M.P." as "ehmp".
** It has become the closest thing he has to a catchphrase, always uttered when something extremely stupid happens to or around him. [[SurroundedByIdiots Which is a lot.]]
** After the Reds and Tucker spend an entire episode [[CurbStompBattle getting their asses handed to them]] by Tex, Simmons finally gets a clear shot at her with a heat-seeking missile, only for her to ''outrun the thing'' and use some teleporters to start running back at them with the missile in tow. This causes Tucker, the only one who held his cool for the entire "fight", to finally lose it.
-->'''Tucker:''' [[OhCrap Are you FUCKING kidding me? RUN!]]
** Felix does this when he hears of a man who calls himself "Sharkface".
-->'''Felix''': What is he, a Batman villain?
* Everyone's reaction in WebVideo/SuburbanKnights when it was revealed that Malachite's Hand is [[spoiler: in the same field that they started in at the beginning of the special.]]
-->''(Film Brain recieves a piece of paper telling him exactly where the [[{{MacGuffin}} Gauntlet]] is. At the same time, Seude is showing Critic exactly where the Gauntlet is.)''
-->'''Film Brain:''' ''(looking at the paper, furious)'' Oh, you have--
-->'''Nostalgia Chick:''' ''([[TwoScenesOneDialogue with the Critic]])'' --got to be--
-->'''Todd:''' ''(reading over Film Brain's shoulder)'' --FUCKING--
-->'''Nostalgia Critic:''' --KIDDING ME! ''[[spoiler: IT'S RIGHT BACK WHERE WE STARTED?!]]''
* "[[LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!]] [[BigOMG OH MY GOD!]] [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} After all 30 of my Ultra Balls failed]], a ''Poke Ball'' caught [[OlympusMons it!]]"
** {{LetsPlay/Chorocojo}} had a similar reaction after finally managing to catch a Weezing in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Crystal]]'', wasting a ton of Great Balls on it before finally catching it with a ''Lure Ball'' of all things. A member of the IRC chat he was in came to the conclusion that [[Main/InsaneTrollLogic Weezing is a fish.]]
* In ''WebVideo/TheMercuryMen'', words to this effect are said by Edward on several occasions.
* This classic in ''WebAnimation/ADayInDraculasLife'' when Ricther is revived:
-->'''Dracula:''' "Are you fucking kidding me? ''Are you fucking kidding me?!'' This is a load of '''''Bullshit!'''''"
* [[WebVideo/JoJosBizarreAdventureAbridged This.]]
--> '''Dio:''' ""Why can't I move? Wh... why can't I- No, no, (sees Jotaro walking out the fire) nononoNONO! MOTHERF**KER!!! (Jotaro stops in front of him) NO! NO! NO! NO! BULLS**T! BULLS**T! BULLS**T! Okay, calm down, Dio. Calm down. Calm down, Dio...calm down. If I, Dio, don't move, then he won't realize that [[TemptingFate I, Dio, am not in front-]]"

--> '''Dio:''' "'''OH MY GOD!'''"
--> '''Jotaro:''' "Time Continues."
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** Jaune screams, "Are you kidding me!?" when Neptune uses the same failed pickup line that he once used on Weiss and it works.
** And again in season 3: After fighting off a squadron of Paladin mechs and barely surviving, the Hunters turn to see a newer, stronger, faster Paladin prepare to bare down on them. The team's only response? Sun quoting the trope.
** Torchwick said "You CANNOT be serious" in the same episode when he found out that person who landed on his ship is Ruby[[labelnote:Note]]who until this point met him four times and each time she ended up making complete mess of his plans[[/labelnote]].
* In ''DanganRonpaAbridgedThing'', this is [[spoiler: Leon Kuwata's]] word-for-word reaction when he is to be [[spoiler: executed by pitching machine.]]
* In ''WebVideo/TenLittleRoosters'', twice in episode 3:
** Ryan says this when Miles counters Ryan's assertion that he's wearing a dress (he's wearing Lindsay's [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Ruby Rose]] cosplay outfit) as a "combat skirt", referencing the show itself.
** Burnie says this when [[spoiler:Chris just refuses to ''die'', allowing the killer to pretty much get away.]]

--> '''WebVideo/IHateEverything''' ''(reacting to the narrator in the Peter Pan Phoenix game)'': You have got to be shitting me!
--> ''Later during a dance scene when Peter falls into the house...''
--> '''I Hate Everything:''' Are you actually shitting me? Caddy, what the fuck is going on?!
--> '''Caddicarus:''' I don't know, man. Don't ask me.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In the pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' Sam is trapped by a ghost in a pile of meat. She utters this line when Tucker arrives with a knife and fork, assuring he'll free her in no time.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': In "Little Ed Blue", Edd is hilariously incredulous when he discovers the cause of Ed's outburst of bad temper was [[RampageFromANail a small rock getting caught in his shoe]].
-->'''Edd:''' A ''pebble''?! Ed's bad mood was all because he had a ''pebble'' in his shoe?!
* This is Tak's verbatim reaction in ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' when Zim, instead of figuring out that she's a rival Irken who's out to prove herself a better invader than him, concludes that her mistreatment of him over the past several days meant they were ''dating'', and so triumphantly "breaks up" with her.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Aang overcomes a Fire Nation vessel with some difficulty... then says this exact phrase on seeing the ENTIRE FLEET behind it!
* Jackie, in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', frequently.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|2003}}'' 2003 cartoon episode "Scion of the Shredder", Raph has tired himself out fighting a few Foot Soldiers while escaping on an elevator. Then, just when he's catching his breath, more Foot Soldiers show up. His response? "You've gotta be kidding me."
** This isn't the only moment he drops this - he says it quite often when he runs into trouble. For example, he even dropped it at least once in the ''Fast Forward'' episode "Home Invasion" when a machine that brushes his teeth and puts shaving cream on his face came to life where he thought he could get the privacy to read a newspaper.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
** "Friendship is Magic, Part 2" has Nightmare Moon utter [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSxD7ANFONM "You're kidding. You're kidding, right?"]] when Twilight gives the [[FurryReminder do-you-want-a-piece-of-me ground kick]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Beware the Grey Ghost", Bruce Wayne realizes that a series of bombings are copied from the Grey Ghost show he enjoyed as a kid.

-->'''Carl:''' You have got to be fricking kidding me.
* The ever-snarky Rattrap from ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' lets one out when the youngster Nightscream transforms right after Optimus Primal has reformatted him into a Technorganic body, whereas it took Rattrap several episodes to master transformation. Or, he could just be referring to Nightscream's [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/File:Nightscreambm.jpg infamously weird and ugly robot mode]].

** Professor Utonium says this in "The Powerpuff Girls' Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever" when the girls drag him into playing Bubbles for their little game.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "Legends", Flash is fighting a supervillain in a RetroUniverse. Just when it looks like he's won, he sees a [[BusFullOfInnocents bus full of nuns]] on a collision course with a TNT truck.

-->'''Apu''': Oh, you have got to be kidding, sir. First you think of an idea that has already been done, and then you give it a title that nobody could possibly like. Didn't you think this through? [...] bestseller list for eighteen months! Every magazine cover had it [...] popular movies of all time, sir! What were you thinking? ({{Beat}}) I mean thank you, come again.
* In season 1's finale of ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', Sonic says this at one point.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Notably, the unofficial catchphrase for UsefulNotes/WildWeasel crews was "YGBSM", for "You Gotta Be Shittin' Me". To clarify, the Wild Weasels were Vietnam-era USAF fighter aircraft whose job was to act as bait for North Vietnamese air defenses, in hopes of [[HighSpeedMissileDodge drawing their fire]], [[DodgeTheBullet evading it]], and then [[DeathFromAbove destroying the antiair site]]. The phrase was supposedly coined as
-->"...the [[ThisIsGonnaSuck natural response]] of an educated man, a veteran [[GuyInBack EWO]] on B-52s and the like, upon learning that he was to fly back seat to a self-absorbed fighter pilot while acting as flypaper for enemy [=SAMs=]."
