** Phoenix in fact questions Mia's motive for being so secretive about the outcome on one occasion. In the second case of ''Justice For All'', she tells him that if he can't answer her questions, he won't stand a chance against Franziska in court.
** Ema Skye uses the phrase directly in the 4th game, regarding [[spoiler:Phoenix's loss of his badge.]]

** Miles Edgeworth tells Phoenix in ''Justice for All'' that he has to decide for himself what being an attorney means. It's suggested that he doesn't tell Phoenix what he considers to be the right answer -- to reveal the truth -- because Maya is being held hostage to force Phoenix to get an acquittal for his very-much-guilty client.

-->And I knew that she could tell me anything I wanted to know (life, death, past, future) even though it was already there, in her smile, the answer to all questions, the before-Christmas smile of someone with a secret too wonderful to let slip, just yet: well, you’ll just have to wait and see, won’t you?

Often characters who really shouldn't have any motives to [[PoorCommunicationKills keep this information secret]] from the character do this. It may be merely to pad out the season, or if the person is TheChooserOfTheOne it may be a test to see if the character is in fact worthy of the title of chosen one. Though they frequently claim that making the hero work through things by himself is a necessary learning experience, it may be just because [[LovesSecrecy they enjoy keeping him in the dark]].

* ''Everybody'' in Robert Jordan's ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime''. If the good guys didn't universally have a habit of not sharing information with each other (along with [[{{Jerkass}} other]] [[WouldntHitAGirl tragic]] [[StrawFeminist flaws]]), the series really would have been a trilogy.
** Of course, this is intentional, as one of the major themes of the series is the problems caused by poor communication and unwillingness to talk
*** The series is often compared with ASongOfIceAndFire. Both could be deconstructions of the typical fantasy "a dark power is rising" by detailing how ''difficult'' it really is to just get all of these different nations and people in charge to put aside their differences and band together against evil.

** It can help people understand a concept more than if they were just told about it. By asking them questions, they can theorize and you can find out what they already know and what they need to be taught. It's also effective politically, if done well, in that the person you're doing this to will think ''they'' came up with ''your'' idea. And [[GladIThoughtOfIt people will always accept things more easily if it's "their" idea]].
