* ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'': Throughout the movie, Jafar exploits MurderByInaction, knowing that while the [[OurGeniesAreDifferent genie]] rules [[ThouShaltNotKill prevent him from directly killing anyone]], there's [[LoopholeAbuse nothing stopping him from setting up proxies and indirect assassination attempts where he technically doesn't lay a finger on Aladdin]].

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': [[TheChessmaster Aizen]] once exploited HiddenDisdainReveal. When he revealed he was EvilAllAlong, his Captain, Shinji, freely admits he always knew that Aizen was a bad guy and he never liked him, and had in fact only chosen Aizen as his lieutenant to keep an eye on him. In response, Aizen smugly reveals that that's exactly what he was counting on when he replaced himself with a doppelganger months ago; since Shinji never liked Aizen or got to know him, he was unable to see any strange behavior after the switch, so he never caught on to it.

* On a similar note, a series of Discover Card commercials with the slogan "We treat you like you'd treat you" have featured someone phoning a Discover customer-service center, and speaking to a service person who's played by the same actor as themselves. Once this pattern because well-established, they released one in which the service person is ''not'' a metaphor for service-quality, but the caller's actual twin sister.
