* In Creator/DavidMamet's ''Theatre/GlengarryGlenRoss'', this is how the thief reveals himself. [[spoiler:Levene calls Williamson out on lying about cashing Lingk's check. But the only way Levene could have known that is if he was the thief, since the previous night was the one night in Williamson's entire life that he forgot to cash the checks at the bank.]]

* During the first big plot twist of ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', [[spoiler: Lynx had just switched bodies with Serge and was about to kill his old body with Serge in it. He told Kid that he was going to do it to avenge Lucca for her, but then Kid just realized: while she did tell Serge that Lynx had taken away Lucca from her, not once did she say her name! Of course, this revelation comes too late...]] Needless to say, it seemed like a bad choice of words for Lynx.

* In the Literature/FatherBrown short story "The Green Man", the victim is an Admiral who is found dead in a pond close to his home, on the evening when he was expected to return home from a longer sea voyage. Upon being told that the Admiral is drowned, the murderer asks: [[spoiler: "Where was he found?" which tips off Father Brown.]] Note that Father Brown is older than radio. If the Admiral had drowned at any time during the voyage, his family would probably not have found out until his ship came back to England. [[spoiler: Unless you know that he drowned in the pond, the reasonable thing would have been to assume that the body was lost at sea.]] Father Brown bites his tongue at the actual tip-off, but this trope comes into play in the big reveal at the end.

* As noted, police actually do rely on this as part of real life interrogation techniques. However, over-reliance on this technique has caused a significant number of false confessions and erroneous arrests. Police will either feed the suspect information he didn't know before and he'll repeat it back, and they'll use that to browbeat a confession out of him, or the suspect will make inferences that make it seem like he knows more about the crime than he really does. This has caused police in some countries to abandon the technique entirely.
