** Sten straightforwardly realizes that the dream (his fallen Qunari comrades still being alive) is too perfect to be real, although he does admit it's a good dream.

** "Won't Get Fooled Again": This time Crichton has wised up, and knows it's a hallucination, but the ladies bathroom trick doesn't work. He first realizes that Harvey, Scorpius's neural clone, isn't part of the illusion. Harvey alerts him to the fact that he is a prisoner of the Scarrans, whose intense body heat John can feel through the illusion. The hot flashes therefore function in this episode as "Matrix Glitches."

Oddly enough the oddities and out-of-place elements that usually make up this trope are still present (and get more extreme over time), but instead of glitches they're a deliberate attempt to break his sanity and the entire point of the simulation.

* The [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]] is ''Film/TheMatrix''. As Trinity explains, Deja Vu is caused by a glitch in the computer simulation, which usually signals that the programs running it have altered some fundamental law. In this case, [[spoiler: all the windows and doors have been filled in with bricks.]] For the Resistance, this is a ''bad'' thing as it means the system is aware of their presence, the [[ImplacableMan Agents]] are coming for them, and it's time to get the hell to an exit before they get killed.

* Played with in the pilot of ''Series/{{Alphas}}'': Hicks begins hearing random people telling him that "it's time to kill" and to "pull the trigger", but while he does think this is strange, he never suspects that he's brainwashed. The real purposes of these phrases is to show the viewers that his mind has been messed with.

** "Future Imperfect". Commander Riker is trapped inside a LotusEaterMachine. First the problems are small, but as he begins to realize more and more things are out of place, he is moved to the "real" world, but the setting has simply changed to a new illusion. It takes him not nearly as long to realize something's still off.

* In the world of ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'', you will often see things like walls and floors glitching, as well as hear static when that happens. Sometimes it gets bad enough that Elohim comes in and fixes it, before saying something like "Excess Data Purged".

** Every so often, you'll
see things a random object pixellate and flicker, like walls and floors glitching, as well as hear static when that happens. 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".Purged".
** One of the puzzles in the second world is built in the first world's theme. A few seconds after you enter, Elohim notices, and the objects are replaced by the correct ones.
