* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'', Lumpus, trying to get proof that Lazlo, Raj and Clam were behind pranks pulled on him, convinced Lazlo to prank 'the big moose' while he was asleep. A sequence then showed Lumpus sleeping while the Jelly Scouts were sneaking into a room, ending with Lazlo spraying an obscured figure with antlers with shaving cream. It then {{Smash Cut}}s to a scene where Lumpus's face is obscured and all the campers are freaking over how disgusting it looks. Then in a hilarious RevealShot, it's shown that his face is still the same (meaning that all the campers find him [[TheGrotesque naturally hideous]]). Turns out that Lazlo thought Lumpus meant [[LiteralMinded the big moose head in the cafeteria]], and he and the others 'pranked' it [[CleansUpNicely by giving it a shave and haircut]].

* Used in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Sasuke learns that [[AloofBigBrother Itachi]] and Kisame are searching for Naruto in a nearby town, so he dashes off to warn him. He knows that he is traveling with Jiraiya, so he asks every hotel owner he comes across whether they have seen a blonde kid with a tall white-haired man until he finally gets a positive response. He goes up to the room and knocks on the door. The scene cuts to Naruto inside his room hearing the knock while meditating. The scene switches back and forth a couple more times, with Sasuke knocking with increasing urgency until Naruto gets fed up and stands to answer the door. Finally, the door opens for Sasuke revealing . . . a completely unrelated blonde child and white-haired old man. Immediately after, Naruto opens the door to reveal Itachi.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Storks}}'': It initially looks like Junior got the baby safely to her new family despite sabotage from Hunter, but the home he's visiting turns out to be [[spoiler: a trap set by Hunter,]] and the family is actually getting a visit from a very stiff-capped inspector about their recent "home renovations" needing to be taken down.
* ''WesternAnimation/DougsFirstMovie'' uses this when government agents are sent to capture Herman, the Lucky Duck Lake Monster, who is hiding out at Doug's house as Doug and his friend Skeeter are returning to said house. Adding to this, Porkchop and Herman hear someone at the door. However, it turns out that it was Doug and Skeeter at the door; the agents are actually at the wrong house and come across the nerd group Roger had hired to build a robot. Part of the humor of this bit is that one shot features the agents leaping out of a black truck, then cuts to Skeeter commenting on an unusual truck parked in front of Doug's home that has no other importance to the plot for a perfect effect.

However, she ends up getting caught in a snare, and the moving bush that the search party has spotted contains someone else entirely.

* While it is not a camera trick, this is the entire story told by the song "Silhouettes", where the guy is complaining how he can see his girlfriend in silhouette through the shade in her living room, dancing with another man, until he gets so disgusted he bangs on the door, only to discover two different people open the door, and he's ''on the wrong block''!
** This is an aversion of an idea previously (and later) used by other songs called "Two Silhouettes" in which the other silhouette ''is'' another man.

* Not exactly "far apart", [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0402.html but this]] ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' strip plays with people's expectations.
* This is a frequent source of comedy in ''Webcomic/DorkTower''. One story begins with Gilly and Matt each preparing for a blind date. We then see them at a table talking, and seeing how they share lots of common interests and hobbies. The final panel shows that they are actually sitting at two different tables, each talking to someone else who think their hobbies are weird.

Fire Nation troops walk around menacingly as they sleep, the troops then knock on a door... which is opened by Haru, a friendly kid they met earlier in the episode.
