Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{TOT}}'': When Mark first meets Maximus Slade, Slade very dryly tells him he's a werewolf who's come to eat his friends. After Slade kills two people in front of him, Mark realizes that he wasn't lying at all.


* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Lelouch tells Euphemia about his Geass ability being able to force anyone he uses it on to do absolutely anything he tells them to. [[spoiler:As an example, he jokingly tells her that if he orders her to kill all Japanese people, she would have to do it. Prior to this incident, he was able to use his Geass ability at will, but during this conversation he loses the ability to control it, and it stays on permanently. Which means the sarcastic order he gave her [[OhCrap became an absolute one]], and she went out to immediately order the slaughter of innocent Japanese people who she had been trying to help]].

* In ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'', after noticing odd behavior from [[VampireMonarch Princess Mina Tepes]] in the month since a fearsome attack on her domain, [[spoiler:Akira Regendorf asks if she is hiding anything from him and is told "I'm not really Mina, I'm an impostor... I traded places with the real Mina, and sent her off into the darkness. She is gone now and will never come back." Even as Akira chides the UndeadChild before him for [[EvilTwin her]] tasteless joke, the ''actual'' Mina Tepes is hiding in a New York alleyway having escaped Duke Rozemann]].

* In an issue of ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'', white Martians start controlling the minds of people in an attempt to ruin the lives of the Justice League. They force [[ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]] to cut the Bat-Rope while Batman is dangling from it, send an angry mob after Jimmy Olsen, etc. One of their tricks is to briefly take control of Lois Lane while she and Clark are at the Daily Planet, and have her rip open Clark's suit and expose him as Franchise/{{Superman}}. Immediately afterward she comes to her senses and tries to fix it via this trope. With Clark's super-speedy help she is able to make it look like a prank by ripping open an intern's suit as well, revealing that he suddenly has a Franchise/{{Batman}} shirt underneath. However, when she attempts to continue the gag by ripping open her own shirt and exposing herself as Franchise/WonderWoman Clark isn't fast enough and she ends up just... [[ClothingDamage exposing]] [[{{Fanservice}} herself]].

** In another issue, Mary Jane's Aunt Anna confronts her with the evidence that Peter is constantly sneaking off at all hours and meeting with strange people, so obviously he's having an affair. MJ sarcastically explains that the real reason he does that stuff is because he's Spider-Man.

** A police department shrink strongly suspects that Jake Gallows is the Punisher (spoiler: he is) and barges into his home for a surprise visit/inspection/psych evaluation. When she starts questioning him Jake confesses that he's the Punisher, and he has a bunch of criminals locked up in his basement, and he's just been down there beating one of them half to death for kicks. He even offers to show her the Punisher costume he keeps in the bedroom. Of course she brushes all this off as misplaced anger over the death of his family. Little did she know that ''every word of it was true''.
** Subverted later when he feels attracted to her and feels bad for lying to her, so he actually confeses to being The Punisher. She doesn't believe him at first, and thinks he's being sarcastic like the first time. He then proceeds to prove it.
* ''ComicBook/{{Hitman}}'': Tommy Monaghan and his friend Nat the Hat are moving boxes of ammunition into his apartment when a neighbor asks what's in them. He tells her that they're full of guns and ammo, because he's a hitman, and he also has telepathy and x-ray vision. All true, but so absurd she doesn't believe him, and they end up dating. Some time later, a hit goes bad and he turns up on her doorstep shot up and covered in blood... She does not take this well.

I'm here to kill him before that happens because I'm a time traveler from the future. A future where you [Yoruichi] are a cat, and Kisuke Urahara owns a Candy-Shop." Shusui and Yoruichi find this story hilarious. [[spoiler:Even Aizen, who's eavesdropping, thinks Ichigo is crazy]].

* In ''Film/TheMule'', Earl's ex-wife asks him how he has managed to come into so much money. At first he jokes that he's been working as a gigolo, then says he's a bounty hunter, then tells her that he's a drug mule for a cartel and has hundreds of kilos in his truck outside. His ex-wife interprets this to mean that he doesn't want to tell her the source of his money and gives up on asking him.

-->'''Richelieu:''' Ah, yes. That is usually the first. Let me see if I remember it correctly. While the English attack from without, the wicked Cardinal undermines from within, forging a secret alliance with Buckingham and placing himself on the throne. But really, Your Majesty, why stop there? I have heard much more festive variations. I make oaths with pagan gods, seduce the queen in her own chamber, teach pigs to dance and horses to fly, and keep the moon carefully hidden within the folds of my robe. Have I forgotten anything?

* In ''Film/LiarLiar'', Jim Carrey is cursed to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth (at least as he perceives it) for a whole day, and unable to lie by omission or even remain silent. Naturally, he is asked what he really thinks of his bosses right in front of them. He gets out of the situation by taking it so far over the top that everyone thinks he's roasting them. He also attempts to trick the judge into adjourning for the day by beating himself up and then giving the judge a description of who did it (i.e. a desperate man). It almost works, until the judge asks him if he's able to continue. He's forced to say yes.

* ''Film/WhereEaglesDare''. Smith tells Schaffer the reason he's late is because he found a beautiful blonde woman lying in the snow. Said woman is an intelligence agent who parachuted in after the commando team and is secretly working with Smith.
* ''Film/ThePost'': As Bagdikian is bringing the Pentagon Papers on his flight back to D.C., the stewardess sees him trying to put a seatbelt on one of the boxes he has, and notes it must be precious cargo. Bagdikian responds, "It's just government secrets," which she laughs at.
* ''Film/AssaultOnWallStreet'': After Jim begins assassinating bankers and stock brokers for their role in the financial crash, he meets up with his old police and security guard pals in their diner hang-out. When he brings up the recent killings, he sarcastically admits that he's the one behind it, but they take it as a joke. Still, it raises obvious doubts if one pays attention to their unnerved facial expressions.

* Used in ''X-change Alternative''. When the protagonist's parents are on the phone and questioning him about why his voice sounds so odd, the player can choose to either lie or just admit his situation. The latter results in him snapping and explaining how a bizarre drug turned him into a girl, laughing insanely all the while and making no attempt to hide his lighter voice. Not only do they assume it's some elaborate joke, it's also the only way to deflect their suspicion.

* Basic premise of the Comet, the tabloid newspaper for which our MainCharacters work in ''Webcomic/ScandalSheet'' As Detweiler, the editor-in-chief, puts it, "We operate on two principles. First, that the most artistic way to lie is to tell the truth so unconvincingly that people are sure you are lying, and second, the best place to hide a needle isn't a haystack -- it's a [[NeedleInANeedleStack big pile of other needles]]." As it turns out, [[spoiler: the Comet actually employs a sasquatch named Phil and regularly gets information from a vampire named Samantha. They consider it their role in life to protect the rare and endangered supernatural beings of the Earth from being discovered and exploited by others. As such, most of the stories in the paper are made-up crap, but some of them are true -- no journalist with any self-respect at all will pursue them, though, since it's well-known that once it's been in the Comet, it can't possibly be correct.]]
