* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': In the sixth episode of season 1, Kilgrave is playing Texas Hold 'Em against some men implied to be gangsters, reacts to a useless hand with an "ugh" face and visibly pulls back. One of his opponents says that he should work on the poker face. However, it turns out he's not planning to win [[MindRape fairly]].

* ''Manga/YuuutsuKunToSuccubusSan'': Eru the angel is unable to maintain her expression in any way during a game of Old Maid with Sakuma. Sakuma, being a demon, is much more proficient than Eru. However, while her Poker ''Face'' is excellent, her Poker ''Wings'' leave much to be desired, as Eru's attempts to pick a card elicit either dead silence or frantic flapping.


* In an episode of ''Series/{{Joey}}'', Joey is playing poker with Alex, and thoroughly losing; he wonders what he's doing wrong. Then he draws three new cards, and his eyes go big and he gasps before pressing his mouth into a line and trying to act nonchalant.
-->'''Joey:''' Alright, well, I guess I'll raise.
-->'''Alex:''' I fold.
-->'''Joey:''' It's like you can read my mind!

* In the Crime Syndicate of America's first [[CrisisCrossover appearance]], they capture the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica and force the ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica to battle them on Earth-2. After the Syndicate's defeat, the League discuss what to do with them. The looks of horror on the villains' faces when it's suggested they be imprisoned on Earth-1/Earth-2, coupled with the smug smirks they display when it is suggested they be left on their homeoworld Earth-3, make it easy for the JLA to realise something's wrong (which is revealed to be that the JSA's prison has been rigged to destroy Earths 1 and 2 if it is tampered with). The CSA lose their chance at having the last laugh, all because none of them can keep their emotions hidden.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': PlayedForLaughs in "Take My Wife"; While playing poker with his friends, Peter sees that he has a good hand. Not only does he smile widely, he also pulls a rope that summons a mini-parade and lowers a banner reading "Great Cards!" When asked if he has any good cards, Peter unconvincingly claims that he doesn't.

* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Ranma is revealed to be this during the Gambling King Arc. When playing Old Maid, Ranma will get excited when his opposition is about to take the Joker, while looking sad when they pick another card. Ranma is later humorously put through TrainingFromHell to help him get a poker face, only to fail spectacularly, but injured his face so much that it became bandaged up and rendered impossible for anyone to tell his emotions.

Ranma is later humorously put through TrainingFromHell to help him get a poker face, only to fail spectacularly, but injured his face so much that it became bandaged up and rendered impossible for anyone to tell his emotions. Unfortunately for the Gambling King, he also suffers from this -- it takes [[OnlySaneMan Nabiki]] to point it out, but sure enough, once Ranma sees that the Gambling King makes a face better described as "ecstatic" whenever his opponent is about to pick the Joker, the game becomes much easier.


* ''Anime/LoveLive'': Umi tries to be cool, but is very easily flustered. In one scene she tries playing Old Maid, and when another character hovers over each of the two cards she's holding, her expressions are so hilariously exaggerated that there's no doubt at all which card is which.
