** In a flashback, Sergeant Major Gross claims to have showed Faye to the gates and left, adding that he's a busy man. In reality, he was slacking off at the riverbank at the time, and [[spoiler:Grisha]] realizes that Gross [[WouldHurtAChild fed Faye to his dogs]].

Added DiffLines:

** Another fun instance of Izaya's blatant lies is during the Dufufufu!! OVA story, when he talks to the false Shizuo. He walks up to him, pretends not to know Shizuo at all, calls himself 'Tsukumoya Shinichi', asks if he can pay the false Shizuo to give him information, and spends pretty much the rest of his screen time spouting any random crap he can come up with.


** Grimmjow defies Aizen's orders and secretly travels to the human world in an attempt to confront Ichigo and find out how strong he is in combat. Their fight ends when Tousen arrives to drag Grimmjow back to Aizen for punishment. The next time Ichigo and Grimmjow meet, Grimmjow is missing an arm. Aizen's punishment was to permit Tousen to destroy Grimmjow's arm, demoting him from the ranks of the Espada in the process. When Ichigo asks Grimmjow what happened to his arm, Grimmjow retorts that he cut it off himself because he doesn't need two arms to beat Ichigo. Ichigo doesn't seem fooled by that answer but politely goes along with it.

* In ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', Junji "Katari" Karita falsely claims to be a Zearth pilot, offering to prove it by doing a victory dance after the next battle ([[DidntThinkThisThrough most likely assuming that the real pilots would play along]] and not realizing that [[spoiler:some battles take place in other universes]]) and vaguely saying that he "was chosen" to pilot, in contrast to the somewhat elaborate cover story the authorities came up for the protagonists. Of course, while the story isn't very believable, it has the advantage of coming out first, thus thwarting the attempt to release a story on the real pilots. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for Katari, some people who want revenge against the Zearth pilots believe him, and one of them ends up shooting him dead]].

** After Kana gets a call from Tanaka, who gives her an update on the search for Ushiro's mother, Ushiro himself comes in and asks who called. Kana, not wanting Ushiro to find out, lies and says that it's their mutual friend Kanji. Ushiro [[BigBrotherBully hits Kana]] and tells her not to lie about it.



** Earlier, in ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers StrikerS]]'', Fate told Nanoha that [[spoiler: Vivio was okay, after she was kidnapped by [[MadScientist Jail Scaglietti]]]] in an attempt to comfort her. [[spoiler: The next scene showed us [[StrappedToAnOperatingTable just]] [[ColdBloodedTorture how]] [[IWantMyMommy wrong]] [[WouldHurtAChild she]] [[NightmareFuel was]].]]

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Endou has an almost hilariously flimsy pretext for asking for money from Shino, saying that they did karaoke for too long (20 minutes after school let out), and don't have enough money for the train (they have passes), so they need 10,000 yen (Roughly $100). Shino sees through it, but it doesn't do her much good.

** [[ArcVillain Quinella]], Administrator and ruler of the human realm of the Underworld, swears on the Goddess Stacia that she'll let Prime Senator Chudelkin do whatever he wants with her for one night if he deals with the heroes. The reason why this is an obvious lie is because Quinella doesn't believe in Stacia, so her words mean nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* Shinobu and Kazama from ''Manga/NinjaShinobuSanNoJunjou'' when they claim they are not ninja's, despite clear evidence to the contrary, such as throwing shurikens and kunai's, performing acrobatic feats and other ninja-like stuff.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' plays this for drama. Lelouch is a ''great'' actor and orator, but when put on the spot his lies are downright '''terrible'''. Unfortunately for him, no one ever calls him out on them and they sometimes even ''buy'' them because he's that good at manipulative people. [[spoiler: This even includes lying that he just used the Black Knights ForTheEvulz...while they are about to shoot him and Kallen down, driving Kallen away. He immediately slips and asks her to "live" once Kallen is out of the firing zone.]]


* In ''Manga/{{Working}}'', Aoi claim that she have nowhere to go because her home burned and she [[EasyAmnesia lost her memory]], which is blatant enough as it is, but became doubly so when she show that she brought her luggage with her. She ask Takanashi his age and say she is the same, and at fisrt does'nt answer when called Yamada showing that it is not her real name. Takanashi is'nt fooled and know that she obviousely ran away from home, but Popura and Otoo a buy it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/DeliciousInDungeon'' has Marcille telling the others that she is "the picture of good health" after being exposed to the scream of a mandrake. Both her eyes are pointed in opposite directions.

Added DiffLines:

* In volume 6 of ''LightNovel/OverLord2012'', during the raid of the Eight Fingers' hideout, Sebas {{no sell}}s the ultimate attack from one of their strongest fighters and then kills him in turn with a single strike. He remarks to his companions that he was just "a little bit stronger" which no one buys for even a second.


** Kakashi always makes up ridiculous excuses for his lateness, such as being "lost on the path of life". No one ever believes him, and the truth is that he simply loses track of time while standing by his friend's grave.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Eren Yeager]] tricks Falco into introducing him to Reiner by claiming to be Reiner's old friend. Too late, Falco realizes what's wrong with the story he heard- if Reiner had met his "old friend" more than four years ago, he did so [[spoiler:while infiltrating the Island of Paradis]], thus meaning that [[spoiler:Eren]] is actually an enemy- something he should have noticed in advance.

* In ''Manga/GugureKokkuriSan'': Yamamoto is a [[TheGreys grey alien]] who doesn't even bother with disguising himself, but claim that he is [[HughMann a human]]. No one except Kokkuri seem to find anything weird with him.
-->'''Yamamoto:''' Yamamoto is an Earthling. ''(touches Kokkuri's finger with his own)'' E! T!
-->'''Kokkuri:''' ''Earthlings don't call themselves Earthlings!''



* Manga/{{Nichijou}} means "My ordinary life" in Japanese, but there's also robots created by small girls, salmon falling from the sky, girls that pull weapons out of thin air, and dogs that bite people so hard that they fire their lazers.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhVrains'': In episode #38, when Dr. Kogami—his father—asked him if he found out Playmaker's identity, Revolver said no. [[spoiler:Cue the flashback of Revolver seeing Yusaku in the footage taken from Baira's apartment and him [[SlasherSmile slasher-smiling]] at the sight.]]

** Shinji first appears seeking to recruit Ichigo to join the ranks of the Visored, which he leaves. Ichigo refuses, so Shinji enrols in Ichigo's school class to continue the pressure. Upon meeting his new classmates, he is inappropriately forward with Orhime, enveloping her in a bear hug. When Orihime later tracks Ichigo to the Visored's hidden training ground to pass on an important message from Captain-Commander Yamamoto, the group is absolutely baffled as to who she is. Shinji turns away and in a dejected mood states that she's his first love. Lisa crossly dismisses him, complaining that he describes every cute girl he's ever met as his first love.
