* The trope name comes from the famous (and genuinely moving) scene in ''Film/{{Spartacus}}''. The scene involves several Roman soldiers asking the slaves to identify Spartacus so they can crucify him, promising amnesty so long as they identify the rebel leader. Spartacus is about to speak, when suddenly slaves left and right begin claiming to be Spartacus. Eventually, they ''all'' say they're Spartacus, [[spoiler: so the Romans just crucify all of them except Spartacus and Antoninus, who they force to fight to the death (''then'' they crucify Spartacus after he wins).]]
