* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'':
** Theo's story at the beginning about the Dragon from Mars is a pure flight of imagination, but the Other's lab [[spoiler:actually IS in the Heterodynes' basement and, if the novel's prologue adaption is accurate, the Other's base of operations is extra-terrestrial as well!]] Also, in this story [[spoiler:Klaus got wasped. And soon enough this also happens.]]

** Near the climax of the Sturmhalten arc, Agatha sets off a giant holographic message. It is meant to tell everyone that [[spoiler:Lucrezia]] was The Other, but selective editing by The Other or Tarvek made it appear to name [[spoiler:Baron Wulfenbach]] instead. [[spoiler:Which may have been shooting themselves in the foot, as by the end of the arc Baron Wulfenbach has been wasped and is under The Other's control]].

* In ''Literature/TheStarsAreColdToys'', after discovering a race of HumanAliens (something thought to be impossible), a coalition of Weak races (including representatives from humanity, although acting without government approval) sends a ManchurianAgent, altered to look like a dead alien pilot and his memories suppressed. After arriving to the race's homeworld, the pilot's friends are shocked when he doesn't recognize them. After some testing, which is also meant to reveal any infiltration attempts by a hostile race, his (false) identity is confirmed, although they determine that he has completely lost all his memories. A few days later, he and "his" friends discuss sending in agents to infiltrate humanity, which one of them claims to be extremely easy due to the race's similar appearance. He then excitedly points out that an easy way to disguise any oddities is with amnesia. Everyone then falls silent, realizing what they have just suggested, but they then dismiss it.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', in order to get rid of Mr. Herriman so they can have a party, Bloo used the old prank call where he asks "Is your refrigerator running?" and amazingly, it works; Herriman runs off to chase it. However, as it turns out Herriman didn't do this because he was gullible; his refrigerator ''has'' been known to run off (it, like a lot of furniture in the house, is an imaginary friend) and it did so this time too. He only finds out about the party after he's done scolding it.
