Compare YouKnowWhoSaidThat, where the anonymous example of some value turns out to be a historical figure. Also compare IHaveThisFriend, ActuallyIAmHim, and LetMeTellYouAStory. For when the entire story turns out to have been one of these, see NarratorAllAlong. If the main character does this, it's NostalgicNarrator.

* In ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'' Stick tells a story about how a child began fighting the [[spoiler: Hand]], killing them until they were driven out and this act of defiance was the origin of his organization, the Chaste. Matt assumes Stick is talking about himself and sarcastically compliments him on keeping himself at the center. What the audience sees of the Chaste indicates Stick isn't its leader, suggesting this assumption may well be wrong.

**At Frank Castle's trial, Colonel Schoonover testifies as a character witness, and tells a story about a stupid officer who got Castle's squad into an ambush, that caused said idiot officer to lose his arm. When Reyes claims no one can really know what happened if they weren't there, Schoonover says he ''was'' that idiot officer, completely undercutting Reyes' argument.

* Played with in an episode of ''HeyArnold'' when Arnold is complaining about Helga. Grandpa Phil tells Arnold about a little girl named Gertie in his class that was horrible to him and spent the school year making him miserable. At the end of the episode Arnold's Grandma states that she was that very girl - though Arnold doesn't hear it. Which leads to some FridgeLogic when you realize that Arnold probably knows his grandmother's name, and so he should've have made the connection that Gertie was his grandma, especially since it's a really uncommon name.

* In ''VideoGame/Grand Theft Auto V'', Trevor tells Wade his life story during the drive to Los Santos. The characters are obviously him and Michael, to the point that Trevor almost uses their real names before stopping himself midway (he uses "Trisha" for himself and "Michele" for Michael). Fortunately for him, Wade isn't smart enough to catch on, even when he loses his temper and starts using their real names.
