Blatant Lies / Video Games

Go To

  • Any of the dozens of games where the Enemy Chatter includes some variation of the phrase "I/we won't hurt you"; said phrase is often followed by, or sometimes even said while the character in question is attacking the player character.
  • Ace Attorney has a few examples where the a witness will tell a blatant lie. These are normally few and far between however, especially as the games go on, as most of the lies are actual well spun, and are only broken apart due to a piece of evidence that the protagonist happens to have found on the off change, and/or just reply on some logical and clever thinking.
    • An example of one of the few blatant lies, however, comes in the very first case of the first game. The witness claimed to have heard a television say the time when he found the body...only moments after the prosecution had gotten through saying there was a blackout in the building at this time. Then straight after, he claims that the murder weapon was a clock...even through it had been made blatantly clear during the trial that the murder weapon was a statue. Although, this "lie" doesn't mean what you might think it does.

    • In the third game, when Larry claims to have never seen a wallet that he himself had hand delivered to someone, Phoenix's response is simply: "LIAR!"
    • In the fifth game, one witness (a high school student) claimed to have a body double stand in for him in the mock trial, while he killed the victim. He's obviously lying in order to implicate himself and save his friend. Nobody bought it, not even the Judge. The prosecutor found it so ridiculous that he left in the middle of the trial to go on a walk.
  • Animal Kaiser boldly claims that every animal in the game exists in the real world. Uh huh, I'm listening — tell me where I can find the robotic shark, or robotic gorilla. Or purple lions, or alien space invader whales for that matter...
  • Hazama from BlazBlue says he isn't that good at fighting. It's not like he's lying or something... However, this is also subverted that if the situation demands (as in, not to reveal his grand plan), he'd lie anyway, as seen at trying to kill Makoto because she knows too much, but stated it as a 'disciplinary action' for not obeying orders.

  • The NPCs in Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. Often Mis-blamed on the English translation, but the characters were blatant liars in the Japanese original as well.
  • In Chrono Trigger, midway through the Sun Stone quest, you realize that someone in 1000 A.D. stole the Moon Stone before it could be fully charged with the sun's light. If you travel to Porre, the mayor will deny knowing anything about it, even though you can see his house glittering with the light of the nearly-charged Moon Stone on the world map. He becomes more honest and willing to part with it if you teach his ancestors about generosity.
  • Conker's Bad Fur Day: To get in to the Uga Buga chapter, Conker the Squirrel needs to get past two guards who are looking for a squirrel to capture and use as the fourth leg in a table. While one of them is taking a dump behind a rock, Conker tricks the other one by telling him that he's an elephant, and that the guard had the description of "elephant" and "squirrel" mixed up ("squirrels" being big and gray, "elephants" being short and with bushy tails). It works, and he's able to pass through.
  • Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair
    • Hiyoko tells several obvious lies in the second trial, claiming that she'd never visited the beach house, the crime scene, despite having gotten a letter from the victim asking her there, and her footprints being seen on the beach.
    • As a result of contracting the "despair disease," Nagito ends up telling quite a few obvious lies, such as that some of the dead students are still alive, that one of the dead students is actually the traitor, and that Hajime wants to eat Ibuki. Only Ibuki, who's become Super Gullible as a result of her own disease, believes him.
  • In Dark Souls, Patches the Hyena feeds you a lot of blatant lies over his hilariously transparent attempt to kill you and take your stuff.
  • Digimon World: Palmon is just a flower, as it keeps telling the player. After the third time, it's so insistent on this fact, it'll get up and attack them for not listening.
  • Dragon Age:
    • Near the end of the mage origin in Dragon Age: Origins, the player is asked if you took anything from a vault full of artifacts you just passed through. If you're a typical Kleptomaniac Hero, you'll probably have picked up a new staff in there... and you can deny taking anything while it's right there on your back. And if your persuasive skills are high enough, you'll be believed.
    • From Dragon Age: Inquisition, we have Dalish of the Bull's Chargers. She insists that she's an archer, even though she carries a Magic Staff on her back. Justified, since admitting she's a mage would be admitting that she's an apostate. That's a very bad thing for people to know even in good times (Inquisition is not set in good times).
    Dalish: Now, ser, you know I'm not a mage. That would make me an apostate.
    The Iron Bull: You carry a staff, Dalish.
    Dalish: It's a bow.
    Krem: A bow with a giant glowing crystal at the tip?
    Dalish: Yes. It's for aiming. Old elven trick. You wouldn't understand.
  • Dragon Quest:
    • Dragon Quest II: In Tantegel, you find that the king is missing. After obtaining a Gold Key, you can find him in a room above the local armoury, claiming to be a simple armourer, all while wearing full royal regalia. Upon beating the game, if you return to Tantegel, the king "reveals" his true identity and brags about how he had completely fooled you.
    • Dragon Quest IV: If you have Taloon appraise the Dancer's Clothes, during which description he will go out of his way to say he's not a crossdresser.
    • Dragon Quest VIII: If you visit the Mystical Spring near the end of the game, Medea will tell the Hero he's like a brother to her. This is after she told him she sees him as a man.
  • In Dwarf Fortress, if a vampire has infiltrated your fortress, it will occasionally accuse random citizens of its own crimes, in an attempt to throw you and the forces of Dwarven Justice off its trail. The game doesn't really have a good way of checking which citizens are plausible culprits, so an obviously-false accusation is occasionally the smoking gun for a player having trouble rooting out the bloodsucker. And this is after fixing the bug where they'd readily accuse babies and livestock.
  • The trailers for Earth Defense Force 4.1: Shadow of New Despair are presented as newscasts on the EDF's war against alien invaders, with the reporters trying to drum up support by spinning the EDF's setbacks as triumphs, such as promising new recruits instant enlistment, no aptitude tests required, to hide the fact that their numbers are dwindling too quickly in the face of the invaders' onslaught. At the end, one of the reporters suffers a nervous breakdown and admits that everything they've been saying about winning the war is a lie.
  • Lesteena claims that her father was a man of peace and that she will continue his ideals in Eien no Aselia. What did the man just do? Enslaved a couple children and used them to conquer the four neighboring empires overnight. For no apparent reason.
  • The Elder Scrolls:
    • Morrowind:
      • Tribunal deity Vivec admits that some of his sermons were false when confronted toward the end of the main quest. He is also known to tell a number of half-truths, lies of omission, and "Metaphorically True" type truths. His 36 Lessons provide examples of all of these.
      • M'aiq the Liar, the series' recurring Easter Egg Legacy Character, makes his first appearance in Morrowind. He really lives up to his sobriquet, as all but two of his conversation topics are outright blatant lies.
    • After the events of Oblivion, the Thalmor, a group of Altmeri religious extremists, took credit for ending the Oblivion Crisis within their homeland, garnering them enough political support to take over the Altmeri government and reestablish the ancient Aldmeri Dominion. Later, they took credit for restoring the moons to the sky which gained them great favor with the Khajiit, getting them to join the Dominion peacefully as vassals.
    • Bandits and other enemies in Skyrim will sometimes call out "I cannot best you!" or some other message of surrender when you get their health low enough. If you believe them and stop attacking, they will come after you again as soon as they recover a bit of health.
  • Ricky from the Fallout: New Vegas Add on "Honest Hearts" is this trope personified. First he'll claim that he's from Vault 22; if you've been there, you'll know that it's long since abandoned and overrun with hostile plant life. Then he'll make the claim he killed a Brotherhood of Steel Paladin by shooting him through the visor of his helmet with an 11mm SMG, despite the fact that power armor visors are bullet resistant and there is no such thing as an 11mm bullet. He'll also claim to encounter "deathjaws", evidently a more toothy version of the deadly deathclaw, and that he has a third testicle that glows in the dark. You can call him on all of these with the proper skills and perks, to which you can convince him to leave or carry some of your gear into the add on.
  • Final Fantasy:
    • Final Fantasy VI: Gestahl (at the banquet): "All I really want is peace!" The party and Returner leadership know he's plotting something, but don't see through his plans until Kefka (whom Gestahl had imprisoned for his crimes as a show of good faith) attacks the Espers in Thamasa, turning them to Magicite.
    • Also, this is the Hat of everyone in Zozo (except the merchant). Best exemplified by Dadaluma, who says, "Good day, gentle folks. Can I be of service? I hate fighting, so I'd better let you pass" immediately before attacking the party.
      • There's also a guy face down in the mud, who says that this is a wonderful town.
      • And from an NPC you meet right after entering Zozo: "Zozo? Never heard of it."
    • At the start of the game, Kefka, one of the three top generals of The Empire, comes to Figaro searching for Terra. He describes her as "a girl of no importance," and claims that she merely stole something of minor value. Edgar, who's met Terra by now, isn't fooled.
    • In the early hours of Final Fantasy XV, Noctis and his posse encounter a man who introduces himself as "a man of no consequence"... Suspicious enough in its own right and Noct and his friends immediately decide that they don't trust him. We later find out that this "man of no consequence" is actually Ardyn Izunia, Evil Chancellor of The Empire, the man behind the Magitek movement and resident Big Bad.
  • Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was hit pretty hard with this sort of thing on its Steam store page once it was actually released. The PC release supports Windows XP! Except it doesn'tnote . Split-screen for all modes on consoles! Except it's only for Guerrilla mode. In-game manual is easier than a paper one! Except you have to quit out of your game to look up anything in it. And so on.
  • In all GTA games: "Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental."
  • In Hard Time, when you end up in court, your character will give ridiculous stories about what really happened. Sometimes the judge believes you anyway.
  • Heart of the Woods
    • Geladura, a talking cat, keeps her ability to talk secret from Tara until Chapter 3. When she speaks in Tara's presence for the first time, Tara asks Morgan if her cat just talked, and Geladura says "No."
    • In the bad ending in which Morgan sacrifices herself to defeat Evelyn, Tara insists that she's fine, even when it's obvious that she's not.
  • In the 1st Degree has some moments of this occurring. A notable one is when you get Ruby to admit that she saw a gun in pre-trial interview, and then at the trial, she turns around and says that it wasn't a gun, but a pair of pliers. Don't panic. Just get her to read a love letter Zack wrote to her, and she will tearfully admit to lying and tell the truth about the gun.
  • In Katawa Shoujo, Hisao, in Lilly's route, goes on a vacation to Hokkaido with her and their mutual friend Hanako. He later tells Misha and Shizune that they merely studied and went sightseeing, when, in fact, he and Lilly also had a Relationship Upgrade and had sex twice. He even calls it a "blatant lie".
    • "I'm wearing grape scented cologne" as stated by Hisao to cover up spilling something in Shizune's act 3.
  • From Kid Icarus: Uprising, we have Hades, the true, Laughably Evil main antagonist. While all of the game's villains and bosses casually chat with Palutena and Pit during missions, he goes above and beyond lying while Palutena tries to give out advice to the point where when they call him out on it, he'll either insist that he's telling the truth or he'll admit it, but point out that they still have no clue what he's planning. It's a part of the reason why you don't even find out that he's the main force behind the events of the game, from resurrecting Medusa to causing a massive war over a fake MacGuffin.
  • King's Quest V: During the fortune teller cutscene, Mordack is trying to get Alexander to reveal how to turn Manannan back into a man. Alexander says he doesn't know (truthfully), but keeps insisting that he had turned Manannan into a cat unintentionally. These are Blatant Lies, since we know that Alexander both discovered a spell called "transform someone into a cat", knows that the spell had a permanent effect, and later even used a ruse to get Manannan to eat a cursed cookie containing the spell.
    • One part of the game requires you to trap an elf by tempting him with gems, after which the elf keeps the gems, but proclaims that elves never take without giving in return and hands Graham a pair of boots. If the player screws up and doesn't catch the elf, however, then he'll gladly run off with all your gems without giving you jack squat and render the game Unwinnable.
  • Kreia in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. Lampshaded by Kreia herself who warns you frequently not to trust her. Parodied with some of the HK-50s' statements, as they quite literally start the sentence by stating that they are insincere or that they are a fabrication.
  • Last Scenario opens with an In a World... text crawl that turns out to be completely false by the end of the game.
  • LEGO Dimensions: Benny the 1980-something Space Guy has never flown a spaceship through the Middle Zealand sign, especially not one he lovingly constructed with his own hands.
  • Little Busters!: At one point, Komari and Rin are trying to take care of a cat in Rin's locker without anyone finding out it's there. When it causes a clattering sound, everyone in the hallway turns to look and the player has three possible explanations Riki can give: 'we're just taking out the cleaning equipment', which is totally reasonable, 'that thing came out!' which doesn't really make sense, and 'this is my home!' just bizarre.
  • In Lords of the Realm 2, the Bishop has a tendency to do this, such as telling you his army is in your lands on a purely fact-finding mission. Then said army lays siege your castle.
  • Magium: Some dialogue choices involve doing this. For example, when Kate calls out Daren and Barry when they were whispering to discuss about whether or not she was a Banshee, you can choose to reply that you were finishing an earlier discussion. She won't believe you.
  • The Mario Party games have the "Give (insert obscenely huge number of stars or coins here)" roulette option that might appear whenever you land on a Bowser Space. Note that it is physically impossible to hold some of the selected amounts in most of the games due to various caps. When you land on it, Bowser either usually does nothing at all and flees the scene, or sometimes give you a much smaller amount of mini-stars in the games that have them.
  • Mass Effect gives us the following exchange: "Hey, Commander, I heard there were some interesting noises coming from the Synthetic Insights office. Would you happen to know anything about it?" "Who, me? I'm entirely innocent."
    • The Council's adamant refusal to acknowledge the existence of the Reapers.
      Sparatus: Ah yes, "Reapers". The immortal race of sentient starships allegedly waiting in dark space. We have already dismissed that claim.
    • From the second game:
      Asari: Wait. Did you hack your translator so you could control your kinetic language processing?
      Elcor: With a sincerity such that skepticism would be deeply insulting: No.
  • In Mega Man 11, one of Dr. Wily's Boss Banter lines is "Wily always wins!" Of course, this lie is obvious since Mega Man has so far already saved the world from him more than 11 times.
  • In Merge Tales when Dorothy and the Gingerbread Man first meet, he claims that cinnamon is actually a poison.
  • MOTHER series:
  • Neverwinter Nights 2; in one evil questline, the PC has the option to burn down a building using a torch. They will almost certainly be stopped by a guard for questioning. While still holding the torch and possibly having come right from lighting the building in full view of the guard, they can attempt to bluff "I don't even have a torch".
  • Hardware example: After the revelation of the Nintendo Switch, both Nintendo and Nvidia claims that the Tegra X1 in the Switch is customized to meet Nintendo's requirements. Tech Insights finally got hold of a sample of the CPU and tore it down for analysis in late March 2017... Only to find that it's in fact a stock Tegra X1 with Nintendo's branding on it.
  • An obvious example would be in Papers, Please: Some people may be heavier than indicated in their papers, giving you an option to scan them upon noticing this discrepancy, because the extra weight might be due to them carrying drugs or weapons. What does the main character say when starting the scan? "You have been selected for a random search."
  • In Persona 4, Chie, a Tomboy who loves eating meat but is embarrassed about that and her other tomboyish traits, lies and says that her favorite food is pudding when she ends up entered into the Miss Yasogami beauty pageant. Naturally, Yosuke calls her out on it.
    • Later on, Adachi, when asked about Saki Konishi, the girl who discovered the first murder victim's body, claims he only questioned her once or twice. In reality, he'd questioned her repeatedly before throwing her into a TV and causing her death, and the fact that he had done so for a witness with an alibi for the murder is one reason why the party suspects him.
  • The Dancing Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies is clearly based on pop musician Michael Jackson, although his description says "Any resemblance between Dancing Zombie and persons living or dead is purely coincidental."
    • Since his death, the Dancing Zombie is now a generic Disco Dan, with the same description.
    • The original help screen for the first game describes how you should sit around and not do anything, and you win when the zombies reach the house. It then immediately follows up with "-This help message is brought to you by the zombies"
  • In Pony Island:
    • During the second time you play the Game Within a Game, Lucifer adds several demon heads that orbit around the pony before inevitably killing it a few seconds later. On the Game Over screen, he says "MY GAME IS CHALLENGING BUT FAIR".
    • When the 1st version of 2D Pony Island refuses to load a new game, forcing the player to fix it, Satan is dejected arguing, it was going to work, because he tested it "a 1,000 times". Evidently, he did not.
  • Nearly all of GLaDOS's dialog in Portal, which makes sense, as she's a lying liar who lies about lying.
    • One of the promotional videos (about 4 seconds in) for Portal 2 shows that the phrase "Asbestos is harmless!" is a trademark of Aperture Science.
    • The Fact Core blurts out various completely ridiculous facts when you carry it, such as "Before the Wright Brothers invented the aeroplane, anyone who wanted to fly was required to eat two hundred pounds of helium."
  • In the Psychonauts level "The Milkman Conspiracy", a 50s-style Stepford Suburbia is swarming with G-Men in hilariously Paper-Thin Disguise who are obviously spying and snooping while pretending to engage in innocuous activities related to their disguises. They all wear giveaway black sunglasses, speak in Creepy Monotone, engage in Suspiciously Specific Denial, and often seem to have not idea how the job they are impersonating is performed. The self-proclaimed telephone repairman says:
    "I can listen to any phone conversations I wish, but do not do so out of my sense of professional responsibility."
  • The Quake III incarnation of the series' iconic Quad Damage powerup. It's called Quad Damage in the manual, the Arena Announcer calls it Quad Damage, the HUD displays the words 'Quad Damage', yet the item itself only allows the bearer to do triple damage (as even described in the manual)! I guess 'Tri-Damage' just isn't as catchy.
  • Rock Raiders: "Your Rock Raiders are very smart"
  • RuneScape has a quest called "One Small Favour." How bad could it be? *Snerk*
  • Everyone at Ted E. Bear's mafia-free playland and casino, in Sam & Max: Freelance Police ; Season 1, Episode 3. There is no confusing the place for anything but a mafia hideout with a lot of bear-head masks on the thugs, and yet, its workers will deny this every chance they get; often without even being asked, with dialogue such as "You'd never make it in the mafia... not that there's any mafia around here."
  • In Shinrai: Broken Beyond Despair, at the climax, everyone besides Raiko is erroneously convinced that Kamen is the culprit behind the murders, thus forcing Raiko to uncover the truth and convince everyone else what happened. After she succeeds, everyone apologizes to Kamen for doubting their friend. Everyone except Mika, who insists that she knew all along that the person in question was innocent, despite having joined the others in trying to pressure the accused into confessing.
  • So uh, a spaceship crashed in my yard.: When Mark asks ARIA if the "Dancing hula-hula dashboard ornament" is really necessary, the "Suuuurrrreeee." is printed out real slowly, to give the implication that she's lying. But it is still necessary to complete the game:
    Mark: Is [Dancing hula-hula dashboard ornament] really necessary?
    ARIA: Yes, it's uh... a gyroscope.
    Mark: Really?
    ARIA: Suuuurrrreeee.
  • In Spider-Man (PS4) after the arrest of The Kingpin, one of his lawyers claims on Twitter that he had nothing to do with the armed mooks defending his tower and shooting at the NYPD. One user calls him out on this by bringing up the fact that they had his name stitched on their body armor.
  • Splinter Cell:
    • The interrogation from Double Agent:
      Sam: What can you tell me about the meeting on the roof?
      Guard: Nothing!
      Sam: That has to be the worst lie I've ever heard.
    • Pandora Tomorrow also contains this gem in the first mission:
      Sam Fisher: Tell me what you know about your friends on the inside.
      Indonesian terrorist: I... I don't speak English.
      Sam Fisher: I'd bet your neck you do.
      Indonesian terrorist: Well... maybe I speak a little English.
      Indonesian terrorist: They're escorting a... Um, nothing.
      Sam Fisher: What? Escorting who?
      Indonesian terrorist: Nothing, I... I made a mistake!
  • In Syndicate (2012), after getting to the front of the train, Merit tells the controller's cabin that he's Aspari security and has dealt with the situation. The gullible guard opens the door and promptly takes a bullet to the face.
  • Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World and Emil's Mystic Arte. "This... is the final strike !" (slash !). And then he strikes the enemy again...
    • Not counting Ain Soph Aur. What a liar...
    • In the first game, Regal is asked what his relationship is to Presea. He says simply "There is none", but his tone makes it more than obvious that he's lying. The party members don't push him on it, though, apparently assuming his reasons are his own business.
    • Also in the first game, subverted with Lloyd's calling Noishe a dog. This is very clearly untrue: although Noishe is canine in shape, he's several times too large, and possessed of green fur and giant rodent ears. It's not a case of Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit", either, because there are perfectly ordinary dogs in the game, and a pair of villagers lampshading it early on in the game. It eventually turns out that this has a justification: Noishe is a protozoan, a legendary shapeshifting animal. However, Lloyd didn't know that (the fact that they're supposed to be extinct might have had something to do with it) and simply called him a dog because he didn't think he looked enough like a wolf to be one.
  • Jade Curtiss from Tales of the Abyss is a master of this. "No, no. I've been frail since birth... [fake cough]"
  • On the subject of the Tales Series, a common phrase out of everyone's mouth is "It's nothing!" It's. Never. Nothing. In Tales of Symphonia and Tales of the Abyss, at least, these "nothings" are liable to cause either complete character breakdowns or gut-punching plot twists and hours of subsequent remedial questing.
  • In the Team Fortress 2 comic Shadow Boxers, the Soldier states that he wouldn't lie to fellow Americans. Miss Pauling tries to inform him that most of his teammates aren't American (stating that, for example, Heavy is Russian and Medic is German), which Heavy interrupts with "Ha ha! Germany! Russia! Is big American joke on Soldier! Ohh, America, it is the place I am from. All the time." The Soldier is, fortunately, of dubious intelligence and sanity and so believes his team's poor-quality deceptions nonetheless. Additional material generally implies that the team has to claim to give leeway to Soldier's insane suggestions and plans while never actually doing so at all.
  • Tiny Heist: The Matchstick's description: "Probably completely safe to use."
  • Touhou:
    • Marisa is the most honest person in all of Gensokyo.
      Shiki: Yes, you are a little too comfortable with lying.
      Marisa: That isn't true. I haven't told a single lie since I was born.
    • She steals nearly everything that might interest her, but claims that she is only "borrowing" because she will return everything when she dies, as being a normal human most of them will outlive her. You could excuse that as just an unusual thought process, if not for the fact that she is also working on an elixir of immortality.
    • One can only conclude that her master, Mima, the black winged evil spirit, taught her well. Most of the time she can actually tell really convincing lies, but she seems to enjoy being a baldfaced liar so much she sometimes strides straight into this trope for the lulz.
      Luize: You don't look human...
      Mima: I am!
    • Kazami Yuuka spends the entirety of Phantasmagoria of Flower View telling absolutely pointless lies, even incriminating herself in crimes she had nothing to do with for apparently no other reason than to "tease" others.
    • Remilia Scarlet claims with a straight face to be a descendant of Vlad Tepes. Yes, that Vlad Tepes. Even the Word of God says she's a liar.
  • The ending of Trio the Punch informs you that "YOU FIGURED IT OUT". In fact, you'll be just as confused, if not moreso, as when you started the game.
  • In the Ty the Tasmanian Tiger level "Lyre, Lyre, Pants on Fire", Ty is led around by the aptly named Lenny the Lyrebird, who tells him to do certain things that will lead him into a trap. These lies include a couple subtle ones, and a few obvious ones. For example, Lenny tells Ty to jump over a ravine he cannot jump across, when the player can find a smaller ravine that Ty can jump across to the left.
  • Undertale:
    • Attempting to talk to a Vegetoid doesn't do you any good, because it only replies "Plants Can't Talk Dummy". Like most random monsters, Vegetoid actually talks every single round.
    • The description for the final boss of the No Mercy Run, Sans, says he has 1 ATK and 1 DEF, and is the easiest enemy. The first part is technically truenote , but the second part is DEFINITELY a lie.
  • The legendary "The Day Deathwing Came" questline in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Three NPCs tell their stories of how Deathwing flew over the Badlands and got curb stomped by the NPC in question. Face-punching, world-shrinking, and The Casanova orc with a flying motorbike ensue.
    • The presence of 'Safe' and 'Ultrasafe' engineering devices. The safest thing they can do is explode.
  • The first thing you'll read when you load up xkcd game Hoverboard is that the author created a "small game" to celebrate. Of course, it's anything but.
  • In Yo-Jin-Bo, this is a prominent feature of Yo and Sayori's confrontations with Nobumasa, who believes every word even when they're claiming that Sayori is Yo's mother or that they're escaping from a witch who lives in a Gingerbread House. Other couples lie as well, but their lies are at least believable.


How well does it match the trope?
