* In HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi, Mion does this in the Cotton Drifting Arc, when she claims to be her twin sister, Shion, a twin who never made an appearance in the previous arc, and who Rena and Satoko, some of Mion's best friends, don't know anything about. [[spoiler:The aforementioned is what Keiichi and the audience are led to believe, until shortly before the Cotton Drifting Festival, Shion tricks him into buying a doll that Mion had wanted him to give her from the toy store ''where Mion was working.'' Seeing the two twins side-by-side shows Keiichi - and by extension the audience - that Mion really does have an identical twin sister named Shion]].
