** As is to be expected from this game, it's ''hilarious''. Since you start in front of the quest-giver when the "Find the captain" game starts, it's also not unknown for players to rush through the dialogue, accidentally choose "Yes" when they're asked to confirm their choice for the captain, and win without realizing ''what the hell they did''.

* Hilariously inverted in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', where, upon meeting a normal monkey, the GenreSavvy Goku instantly assumed him to be the legendary King Kai, and spent a while fooling around with him before the real Kai - who himself could easily qualify for this trope under different circumstances, what with how he looks and acts - shows up.

* When Bruce Banner goes looking for the Panchen Lama in ''Ultimate {{Wolverine}} vs. [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]]'', he is greeted at the monastery doors by a wizened old man who assures him that the Lama is inside and offers him hot cocoa. Banner shows a GenreSavvy flash by assuming the old man is the Panchen Lama, calling it "one of those Yoda things"... but [[AvertedTrope nope]]. He's talking to Steve, who makes hot cocoa.

* Creator/KevinSmith once attended a picket line of ''{{Dogma}}'' as a picketer. A reporter covering the event ''almost'' figured him out, but Smith introduced himself using his friend, Bryan Johnson's name (who was standing right next to him).

* Carrie-Anne Moss once purchased a [[Film/TheMatrix Trinity]] action figure, explaining to the clerk that it was a gift for her husband. The clerk asked if her husband didn't perhaps have a bit of a crush on Trinity, to which Moss replied, "I hope so!"

* Used to comic effect in the pilot episode of ''TheWestWing''. Sam is told he'll be meeting with "Leo's daughter's fourth-grade class" to tell them a little bit about the history of the White House. When he meets with the class in the Roosevelt Room, he gives them a fake, fanciful history because he doesn't know anything about the White House. The class's teacher takes him outside the room and berates him. He responds by telling her his and the administration's travails (including that he "accidentally slept with a prostitute"), and asks her to tell him which of the students is Leo's daughter so he can see that she gets personal attention. The teacher reveals that ''she herself'' is Mallory, Leo [=McGarry's=] daughter, to which Sam responds, "Well, this is bad on so many levels."

** Also, Queen Amidala traveled with a host of decoys for security purposes, it seems. What makes her an example of the trope is that she's always disguised as one of her own attendants, as opposed to moving completely behind the scenes. Qui-Gon knows handmaiden Padme is the queen, and takes every opportunity to rile her up when mentioning how the queen will approve of his choices.

Not to be confused with ConfrontingYourImposter. Or with BecauseImJonesy, which is sort of an inverse of this trope.
