* The rules of ''TabletopGame/{{Clue}}'' make a distinction between a ''Suggestion'', in which a player is simply... [[ShapedLikeItself suggesting]] a theory and seeking evidence to the contrary, and an ''Accusation'', an all-or-nothing action after which the accusing player will either win the game[[labelnote:*]]if proven right[[/labelnote]] or be eliminated from play[[labelnote:*]]if their guess is wrong[[/labelnote]].



* The Scorpion Clan of ''TabletopGame/LegendOfTheFiveRings'' do not have ''ninja''. They have ''shinobi''. Only those jerks in the Spider Clan have ''ninja''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/FreedomToons'': In "Noah's Ark 2018" the Hipster in charge the ark claims that it's not an Ark but an "Authortarian Resistance Carrier", until Seamus points out that Islam has the Noah's ark narrative at which point she admits it's an ark.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the ''Radio/JohnFinnemoresSouvenirProgramme'' Train Driver/Train Manager skits has the driver winding up the train manager by concluding a passenger announcement with "And when I say train manager, as we all know, I basically mean ticket inspector." The train manager insists that he is ''not'' a ticket inspector.


* Due to Vexusdylan's original channel being inaccessible, ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'', from episode 3 onward, refers to the creator as 'Vexusdylan DA SECOND' (his current account name). This rule is usually enforced by [[PluckyComicRelief Andy]].


Compare/Contrast with SheIsNotMyGirlfriend (character insists a romance does not exist, sometimes an overlap when "friend" is substituted), DoNotCallMePaul (character has a name they ''do not'' wish to be known by), BlatantLies (character insists to make an affirmation that obviously isn't real), DontCallMeSir (character insists another not be formal), TheyCallMeMisterTibbs (character insists another uses a formal/informal title in conversation), and ItIsPronouncedTroPAY (character wishes to class up something by "pronouncing it poshly", overlaps if they ''insist'' on their pronunciation).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/BlackFriday'', Tom would like you to know that he doesn't suffer PTSD flashbacks; he remembers bad things ''vividly''. Also, Linda is ''not'' in charge of a {{cult}}, she's in charge of an exciting new religion!

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/DeadRingers:'' Jeremy Corbyn insists people did not quit the Labour Party because of his leadership (or lack thereof). It's just a string of "conscious unshufflings".

Added DiffLines:

** Both games' bestiaries continue to textually describe gnolls as being a "hyena-headed" race, suggesting a case of NonHumanHead. Despite that, both the accompanying illustrations and all adventures involving them always depict gnolls as being full FunnyAnimal (well, ''intimidating'' more than funny) hyenas.


* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: Character insists on a euphemism to cover up a negative reality.

* ''[[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoSpecialTheLastAdventure Big Finish Doctor Who Special The Last Adventure]]'': In ''The End of the Line'', Norman keeps telling people that he is a 'senior customer service manager'; not a 'conductor', a 'ticket collector', or any of the other titles people address him as.
