** Every so often, you'll see a random object pixellate and flicker, like a hologram whose red layer is momentarily misaligned. This glitching is accompanied by a slight buzzing sound, which is particularly jarring in contrast to the usually calm background music. [[spoiler:A square of ground doing this continuously is key to finding a secret room]]. Sometimes it gets bad enough that Elohim comes in and fixes it, before saying something like "Excess Data Purged".

'''Kryten:''' I think this proves, without a shadow of doubt, that this is ''not'' reality!

* This is a game mechanic in ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheDiabolicalBox''. You can take photographs of areas and find small discrepancies between the picture and the area in front of you. [[spoiler:These discrepancies are evidence that you're having a gas-addled hallucination.]]

** This trope gets parodied in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E7AmysChoice "Amy's Choice"]], where the Doctor and his companions are attacked by the mysterious "Dream Lord", who only has control over dreams. The TARDIS team are forced between two realities (Leadworth, where Amy is pregnant and they're being attacked by Killer Old People, or a broken TARDIS where they're dying of hypothermia). The Doctor urges them to try and work out which reality "doesn't ring true". Rory then points out that he's currently in a time-machine with a bow-tie wearing alien, so that might not work very well. [[spoiler: Played straight in the end, though. Once they've correctly chosen the TARDIS as the "reality", the Dream Lord turns the ship back on, saving the characters. Except that the Dream Lord has no physical body, so the Doctor realizes [[TakeAThirdOption they were]] ''[[TakeAThirdOption both]]'' [[TakeAThirdOption dreams]].]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' episode "Frontier", Xana's evil plan involves trapping Ulrich, Odd, and Yumi in a part of Lyoko that resembles reality, hoping to catch them completely off-guard when he actually strikes. However, it seems even Xana can become fatigued while maintaining this illusion, as Yumi notices her parents acting erratically, and then notices her teacher repeat a sentence several times like a jammed record would. Eventually all three start to catch on, leading Xana to, for the first time, confront them personally.
