Contrast with SarcasticConfession and YouWouldntBelieveMeIfIToldYou, or InternalReveal when they believe the truth. A particularly cynical twist is when whoever wasn't listening concludes that CassandraDidIt when what she's saying comes true or to have someone finally believe them, only for their new proponent to find that its a ContagiousCassandraTruth. Can overlap with DontShootTheMessage if the truth is defended [[LogicalFallacies badly]], [[{{Jerkass}} jerkishly]], and/or tyranically.

Absolutely no-one believes Thor when he starts talking about AsgardAsgard
*** Captain America did not explain Bucky where did the nazis got the "Flash Gordon tech". He merely said that there were more sides fighting in the war than it would be ever known.
*** Initially, Bruce Banner refused to believe that the super soldier program got such a huge budget increase. Nick Fury explained then the political reasons for it.
*** When the Hulk problem started, Thor said that he would help if the budget for international aid was doubled. They took it as a snarky way of refusing to help. And suddenly, he shows up during the fight and saves Captain America: George Bush had just doubled the international aid budget.
*** Thor and Captain America want to know Tony Stark reason for being Iron Man. He simply dropped an atomic bomb: he has a brain tumor that is killing him, so he wants to do something for the world in the time he has left. And he said it without losing his demeanour, so Cap did not understand if this was for real or just some complex joke. It was for real.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/WesterosAnAmericanMusical'': Over the course of the play, Catelyn turns out to be right both about Theon's FaceHeelTurn and [[spoiler:Walder Frey not forgiving Robb for breaking his marriage pact]]. In both cases, her warnings weren't taken in account when she made them.

** Creator/JohnByrne had fun with this during his run. A computer programmer working for ComicBook/LexLuthor ran extensive data on both Superman and Clark Kent into the system, in order to find a perceived connection between them. When the computer responds, "Clark Kent Is Superman", Lex promptly fires the programmer, refusing to believe that someone with Superman's powers would be satisfied with a "normal" life.

* ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' has an odd variation, where the villain notices the truth ''herself'' but is too overconfident to accept it. After indulging in typical NothingCanStopUsNow EvilGloating, the Queen suddenly stops mid-EvilLaugh to ponder, "But wait! There ''may'' be an [[MagicAntidote antidote]]! Nothing must be overlooked!" Then she checks her book, and realizes there ''is'' one, but quickly dismisses it, saying, "[[TrueLovesKiss Love's first kiss]], bah! No fear of ''that''! The Dwarfs will think she's DEAD! She'll be ''{{buried alive}}''!" As we all know, it didn't turn out that way at all, and this flaw in her plan is exactly what saved Snow White.
* In ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', when [[spoiler:the Huns emerge from the snow,]] Mulan is the only one who sees it. She returns to the city to inform Shang of this, but he doesn't believe her because she had earlier lied and posed as a soldier. The ordinary folk refuse to listen because she's a woman. In a twist of fate, Shan Yu and his army show up at that exact moment and take the Emperor hostage right in front of everybody.
* In ''Disney/TheJungleBook2'', Shere Khan refuses to believe Kaa when the latter truthfully tells him he has no idea where Mowgli is.

* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'': Phil discovers Meg is working for Hades (albeit unwillingly). When he tries to warn Herc, he will have none of it, going to the point of hitting him in a blind rage, leading Phil to leave at Herc's darkest hour. [[spoiler: Hades ends up revealing Meg's involvement to Herc after taking his strength away. ''And boy'', does it have a more crushing effect on Herc than having his strength gone.]]

* ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'': Pacha tries to warn Kuzco that Yzma and Kronk are trying to kill him, but Kuzco blows him off, thinking they were there to take him home. He then falls out with Pacha, believing his claim to be a plan to save his hilltop from destruction, and then orders Pacha to go away. Kuzco makes his way to Yzma and Kronk, only to overhear them discussing that they are seeking to kill him and that the kingdom doesn't miss him. Kuzco realizes Pacha was right, but Pacha has left, and Kuzco hangs his head in despair.

* In ''WesternAnimation/IceAge2TheMeltdown'', Sid is kidnapped in his sleep by a tribe of mini-sloths who wish to sacrifice him to prevent the coming flood. When he stumbles back into camp the next morning, no one believes his story, insisting that he was just sleepwalking and dreamed the whole thing.

* ''ComicBook/TheRedTen'' has twisted mass-murdering villain Oxymoron telling long-time nemesis crimefighter Red that [[spoiler: her super-team, the Alliance, is made up of monsters with some responsible for crimes even worse than Oxymoron's.]] This sets Red to find the truth and Oxymoron lampshades how he knew all the way until the end, Red was hoping this was just some sort of plot by him rather than accept the reality.

In [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory2 the second one]] he insisted to Jessie and Stinky Pete that Andy didn't break him intentionally. And in [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 the third one]], he [[YouHaveToBelieveMe had difficulty]] telling the other toys that Andy really wanted to put them in the attic and not in the garbage.

* ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheTwelveDancingPrincesses'': When Rowena finds the princesses' dancing shoes worn out and asks what they did, she assumes they're lying to her when they tell her about the magical world they were visiting, and forces them to work as maids. She does not believe them until she eventually sees it herself.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', this tends to happen whenever Skitter and the Undersiders try to warn the heroes about a greater threat. Somewhat justified as circumstances lead the heroes to believe the Undersiders are just using disasters to gain power or are corrupting people in some way.
