* Sasuke did this in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' by giving his teammates a long and complicated password that the real Naruto would never be able to remember. They get separated soon after, and when they next see Naruto, he gives the correct password, and Sasuke correctly assumes this Naruto is an impostor using illusion magic who had been eavesdropping earlier.

* The Finnish military bought equipment from the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Finns knew that their hotel rooms would be obviously bugged so while discussing in "private" they would mention X as absolutely definitely maximum agreeable price for a given item and like clockwork the next day Soviet negotiators would ask X+Y which would then be haggled to X.

* In ''Astonishing Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', Cyclops is aware that the enemy is probably listening to the team's conversation, so he signals Emma Frost to link the team telepathically. He then lays out his plan via the link, while the team has a verbal conversation designed to lure the enemy into a trap. It's particularly effective because the ''readers'' aren't aware of the second conversation until the scene is [[OnceMoreWithClarity revisited]] in the next issue.
