* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. An accidental version in "Powerplay". A soldier notices the latches on the hatch to an inspection channel in the floor are raised instead of flush with the hatch. However that's because our heroes were leaving the channel, not entering it.

* The ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' movie ''ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything'' opens with the BigBad taking over the ship the Prince and Princess are on. A Mook goes into the cabin to find the princess, sees a green cylinder that looks suspiciously like a leek's foot, draws the curtain away, and... it's a vase. He leaves, and the princess and her butler come out from the trapdoor.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', Sid looks around his room for Woody and sees an upside-down milk crate where Woody was hiding. He lifts up the crate, expecting to see Woody... but sees nothing, because Woody was {{Ceiling Cling}}ing onto the milk crate. In a deleted scene, Sid would have found Woody hiding under the milk crate at an earlier point in the movie, which is why it seemed like the obvious hiding spot when Sid was looking for Woody this time.

* In the Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Discworld/{{Lords and Ladies}}'', Magrat gets the drop on an elf by tricking it into thinking she's hiding in the garderobe (for those not in the know, it's a sort of medieval lavatory) when she's really hiding under the bed. She kicks him down the garderobe while he's distracted. It's unknown whether this would be fatal to the elf, but you can certainly bet it wasn't pleasant.

* In the climax of BlueVelvet, [[spoiler: Jeffrey remembers that BigBad Frank has a police radio, so while using one he found to alert the actual police, he lies about where he's hiding. Frank falls for it, which gives Jeffrey time to grab a dead man's gun, which he uses when Frank uncovers his actual hiding place.]]

* In ''TheSting'', Johnny Hooker escapes from a hitman by having the diner waitress go into the bathroom and open the window. He has the hitman chase him into the bathroom and then hides in the bathroom stall with the waitress sitting on his lap (so the hitman can see her shoes under the door). It doesn't help him, because he runs out of the front door of the diner and in the same direction that the hitman had gone. [[spoiler: He escapes because the waitress was another assassin and didn't want the hitman to take the target she was setting up. She shoots the hitman and lets Hooker escape, so she can set up a better opportunity to kill him.]]

* In ''Series/TheATeam'', Col. Decker is chasing the A-Team into a sporting goods store and loses them. Decker then sees a manniquin completely covered with winter gear and, well aware of how Hannibal Smith is a MasterOfDisguise, suspiciously walks around it. Meanwhile, the camera keeps on the manniquin as if to suggest it is Hannibal hiding in plain sight. Suddenly, Decker tackles it, only to learn that ''it is'' only a mannequin and the A-Team was really hiding in a nearby tent.
