* Being a murder mystery, VideoGame/Persona4 naturally has one such moment. However, it's the ''player'' who has to initiate it, fitting in with the theme of "Reaching out to the Truth". At a critical moment in the case, the player is given a [[AsYouKnow review of the facts]] (several times), and then a list of names. You get 3 tries and there, is only one right answer. Fail, and the case goes cold, leading to the [[MultipleEndings Bad End]]. But if you get it right, and Protagonist will say the name out loud, leading to the team figuring out who The Killer might be.

** And the toilet and the bed aren't the only times when people are in this state of mind. There are others, like going to the fridge for a snack, and such is the inspiration for our very own [[TropesOfLegend trope titles]] FridgeLogic and FridgeBrilliance. The idea is that when you're realizing how [[FridgeBrilliance insightful]] something really is, or how [[FridgeLogic it doesn't make quite as much sense as it should]], either way it often comes in a Eureka Moment a few hours or minutes after the fact.

* In ''Film/{{Beaches}}'', there's Bette Midler's satirical song about the - apocryphal - inventor "Otto Titsling", who supposedly invented the brassiere:
-->Otto Titsling, inventor and kraut, had nothing to get very worked up about.
-->His inventions were failures, his future seemed bleak. [[DrowningMySorrows He fled to the opera at least twice a week.]]
-->One night at the opera he saw an Aida [[GagBoobs who's tits were so big they would often impede her.]]
-->Bug-eyed he watched her fall into the pit, done in by the weight of those terrible tits.

-->Oh, my god! There she blows! Aerodynamically this bitch was a mess!
-->Otto eyeballed the diva lying comatose amongst the reeds, and he suddenly felt the fire of inspiration flood his soul.
-->He knew what he had to do! He ran back to his workshop where he futzed and futzed and futzed.

-->[[DiscussedTrope For Otto Titsling had found his quest:]] to lift and mold the female breast;
-->To point the small ones to the sky; to keep the big ones high and dry!

* In ''The Dry'' by Jane Harper, this is how Aaron Falk cracks the case of whether a PaterFamilicide was real or a murder staged by someone else. In a casual conversation about a customer with gambling problems, TheBartender mentions that while gamblers always look for loopholes and strategies, it all comes down to backing the right horse. Back in his hotel room, Aaron realizes that all his theories so far have been built on one fatal assumption - [[spoiler: that whoever killed the family would have a grudge against the father, his old friend. It never occurred to him that his friend's wife might have been the real target.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' "Code of Hero", an early human picks up the makeshift hammer Dinobot made with a stick and a stone. He is at first surprised when he uses the hammer to easily split open a coconut. Then the same giant snake that consumed another early human at the beginning of the episode lunges at him. He instinctively kills the snake with the hammer. He then holds the hammer aloft and yells in triumph as he realizes what tools like the hammer can do.
