** In "Not What He Seems", among the MenInBlack's evidence against Stan is a report card, showing all A's except for a D in gym, which is deemed unlikely. [[spoiler: A hint that Stan is in fact impersonating his genius twin brother.]]

* In one of the ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'' novels, "End of the Circle," the planet Haydon IV turns into a [[TransformingMecha Giant]] [[HumongousMecha robot.]] On its hands are two massive tuning-fork like prongs. The Sentinal Alliance decides to attack the planet-bot and seems to be doing well, but the planet isn't taking much damage due to pin-point barrier systems and anti-air batteries. It seems normal, except for power buildup in the prongs. Suddenly, Exedore realizes that the two technologies (transformation and pin-point barriers) were both used in the original SDF-1, and that the tuning forks are near-exact copies of the ship's WaveMotionGun. He starts to call out a warning, but the guns fire, nearly destroying the fleet flagship utterly.

** In ''The Test'', Steven begs the Crystal Gems to make a challenge for him to go through. While he passes through Garnet's room, a wall of flame she set up starts and then retracts before he crosses it, giving viewers a few seconds to pick up that the tests were rigged to let him succeed before it becomes obvious to Steven.
** In ''Keystone Motel'', right before Sapphire and Ruby's argument about the events of the previous episode (''Cry For Help'') gets to the point where they de-fuse, Garnet gets twitchy and her hands start moving independently.

* In one ''Series/BurnNotice'' episode, Michael gets a phone call from Sam that another character was killed by a bomb attached to his front door, one second before he opens the door to his own house (which is also rigged to explode). This gives him just enough time to jump off his stairway (his front door is a dozen or so feet off the ground and he needs to climb a metal stairway to get there) and away from the explosion. He doesn't escape completely unscathed though; some of the fire manages to sing him, and he would have died impacting with the concrete ground if he hadn't hit his car first, which still had the effect of knocking him out and leaving him clearly disoriented and barely able to stand and walk without Sam's help when he wakes up.

Fiona herself observes the damage later and notes that if Michael had opened the door any wider he'd be in bitty pieces regardless.
