A case where a slightly different, and usually weaker, argument is demolished, instead of one that has actually been put forward. Sometimes things that appear to be deliberate cases of StrawMan can be the result of an honest mistake or bad wording, and are soon cleared up. At other times, the StrawMan persists, possibly implying the people having the debate are starting from different underlying Axioms?.

... and then the BigBadWolf? came to the second piggie's pagan sacrifice.  And he said "Little pig, little pig let me come in!  If you don't then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll burn it all up!  Just like your brother's house, the WickerMan?.  And the little pig shot him."  --Vitenka
