** Subverted at another point of time when the players discover [[spoiler: Alice's]] body. When Dio says that the victim was stabbed with a knife Phi asks how did he know it was a knife when all they can see is a handle. Dio points out that anyone would assume it's a knife seeing scene like that. [[spoiler: He knew about the knife because it was ''his'' knife, but he's not the killer.]]

[[spoiler:Although this makes sense, Phi was still right to be suspicious, since he knew about the knife because it was ''his'' knife, but knife. But he's not the killer.]]

* ''Film/WomanOnTheRun'': Only the killer, the detective, and Eleanor know that the murderer shot at Frank but missed because he was aiming at his shadow. Danny inadvertently gives this slight information away, tipping Eleanor off right away that he's the murderer.

* Paul Powell killed a teenage girl and raped and attempted to stab her sister, and was sentenced to death. There was insufficient evidence that Powell had attempted to rape Stacie Reed before killing her, so he could not be convicted of [[ThreeDegreesOfMurder Capital Murder]] and the [[AmericanCourts Supreme Court of Virginia]] reversed his death sentence. So Paul believed he no longer faced a death sentence [[ArtisticLicenseLaw because of Double Jeopardy]], and he [[WhatAnIdiot sent the prosecutor a taunting letter]] where he [[TooDumbToLive confessed, in detail,]] to attempting to rape Stacie before killing her. The letter [[HoistByHisOwnPetard was used by the Commonwealth to send him back to the electric chair]]. He was named an [[http://darwinawards.com/stupid/stupid2003-01.html At-Risk Survivor]] by the Website/DarwinAwards.

Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''Series/{{Cadfael}}'' has the titular monk use this to determine a suspect's ''innocence'' when he tells the man that his father was "cut down." The man denies ever drawing a blade against him, which provides one of the two pieces of evidence that Cadfael needs. The other is when he hands the fellow some monkshood oil as a refreshing drink to see if the man will recognize it; when he starts to raise it, Cadfael snatches it away and says that he's just proved himself innocent to the crime of ''poisoning'' his father.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': In "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS4E8FutureImperfect Future Imperfect]]", this is how Riker sees through the second fantasy world. In the first, he recognizes his dead "wife" as a fictional character, and the illusion is shattered. But he realizes he's still not in the real world when his cellmate refers to their captor as "Ambassador" Tomalak. Tomalak would be properly addressed as "Commander", and he was only called an ambassador in the previous illusion. Riker never mentioned this, so he deduces that his cellmate is the only real person in both illusions.

** In ''VideoGame/Persona4'', [[spoiler:Adachi]] reveals himself to be the killer by saying that he thought everyone was sure that "[[spoiler:Namatame]] put them in [the television]" no one but the murderer and the protagonists could have known that that was how the victims were killed. He had also cast suspicion on himself in an earlier instance when the protagonists [[spoiler:find a list of everyone that Namatame had put into the television: Adachi shows no surprise at the contents of the list despite the fact that it included people who were rescued before being murdered (and were therefore classed as mere "disappearances" that had no relation to the murders)]].

* Ed Exley from ''Film/LAConfidential'' likes doing a variant of this in his [[PerpSweating interrogations]]. In particular, he tends to say something about them being guilty as if it were a fact, and note that the person never protests or reacts as an innocent person would. For example, in his first interrogation he tells the perp "It's a shame you didn't pull this a few years ago when you were a minor, you being an adult makes it a gas chamber offense." Later, after he's done and is leaving the room, he stops to say, "You know Ray, I'm here talking about you getting the gas chamber, and you never asked me what this is about. You've got a big guilty sign on your forehead." The kicker though is that [[spoiler:the guys he's interrogating are guilty but not of the crime he's investigating.]]
-->"Vincennes mentioned a suspect he was hunting down. ''Rollo Tomasi?''"

[[spoiler: This is a subversion: The Monk wanted to lure Steven and Vicki into his base, and made the "mistake" on purpose]].
