* Subverted in ''[[Literature/KenzieAndGennaro Darkness Take My Hand]]''; after taunting them for a while, a SerialKiller calls Patrick and mentions how handsome he looks at the moment. Patrick immediately asks the killer to tell him what he's wearing, and when the killer dodges the question Patrick immediately calls his bluff and taunts him for just making guesses, which immediately drives him into a fury. Played with, however, in that while being caught out in this way shows the killer is a narcissist on an ego trip rather than an infallible mastermind, he is still ''extremely'' dangerous.

* In ''Series/{{Psych}}'', Detective Juliet O'Hara receives a call from Shawn Spencer. He makes a comment that tips her off to the fact that he can see her. Somewhat subverted. See YouCanSeeMe?

** In yet another episode, Joey reveals that to pass the time he sometimes calls Chandler at work pretending to be a stalker. "She" claims that she can see Chandler, backing it up by describing his outfit (which, naturally, Joey would have seen while Chandler was getting ready in the morning).

* In ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'', Simon makes a phone call to the FBI car after the Wall Street subway station bombing. Despite Cobb making a stern order to the others to not tell Simon where they are, when Simon talks and gives them his bomb threat, he asks them who is in the van with them, and comments about Andy Cross and Phil Jarvis, the two federal agents in the van, and Jarvis's habit of fidgeting with his glasses. Once we see the emergency vehicles move out, we see that Simon is standing on the rooftop right nearby, watching them.

* As a spoof of ''Scream'', the killer in ''Film/ScaryMovie'' plays and subverts this. After making the threatening phone call, he claims that he can see the hot blonde he'd calling. He's actually reading a porn magazine. It gets worse when he issues the threat, "I want to see what your insides look like!". Her response? Telling him to turn to page 54 of the same magazine.

** In the episode "In The Woods", as Lily speaks to SerialKiller George Marks, he snarks about happy Jefferies seemed upon leaving a realtor's office (he had just discovered some very incriminating evidence), thus revealing that he's been observing the team's investigation.

* ''Film/{{Speed}}'' has an interesting example: everyone assumes the villain is watching the drama unfold via the news stations, who have naturally put all their helicopters on the scene for the story. They assume that when they drive onto an airfield, he will be unable to follow them (airfields are restricted airspaces, so the news helicopters can't follow them there). But when he refers to the woman driving the bus as "the Wildcat" in reference to the jacket she's wearing, the hero realizes the villain must have a camera somewhere ''inside the bus'' as well, which complicates things.

* A favourite MindScrew tactic of MackBolan. TheMafia would hear Bolan was in town and start mobbing up to take him out, only for the boss or TheDragon to get a phone call [[TheHunterBecomesTheHunted from the man he was supposedly hunting]]. In the middle of the conversation Bolan would reveal [[OhCrap he's actually watching them through the sights of a high-powered sniper rifle]]. Usually this conversation would be terminated by Bolan shooting the receiver out of his hand or some other display of marksmanship, rather than actually killing the man he was talking to, as he knew it would rattle the mafioso's {{mooks}} to show he was so confident he could kill their boss any time he wanted to.
