* A variation on an episode of ''Series/TheBlacklist.'' Liz confronts Raymond with Florina Campo, the leader of an anti-slavery organization. Red reveals to Liz that Florina is in fact the head of the biggest slavery ring on the planet using her cover to take out the competition. Liz (who idolizes Florina) doesn't believe it. However, when Florina calls Raymond by his first name, Liz realizes only someone who's a major criminal could be so familiar with Reddington. Red lampshades it with "ooooh, that was a mistake."

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', when Sapphire first meets Steven (as far as Steven knows), she calls him by name before he gives it. Steven actually [[FailedASpotCheck does not appear to notice]], but to an attentive viewer, this is a FiveSecondForeshadowing of the fact that [[spoiler:Sapphire is actually half of Garnet.]]

* In the original Japanese script of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', the [[PlayerCharacter Avatar]] knows Chrom's name the moment they first meet, even though they're suffering from amnesia and initially can't remember their ''[[HelloInsertNameHere own]]'' name. Chrom's lieutenant [[CrutchCharacter Frederick]] finds this very suspicious.
** In the English translation, the Avatar has already heard Chrom's name by this point. Oddly, [[DubInducedPlotHole Frederick acts the same way]] despite the trope no longer being in effect.

Instead of being suspicious and asking "How do you know my name?", Chrom instead remarks that since the Avatar has already heard knows his name, it will speed up the introductions. Frederick instead focuses more on the fact that the Avatar claims not to remember anything except Chrom's name by this point. Oddly, [[DubInducedPlotHole Frederick acts and the same way]] despite the trope no longer being in effect.fact that they claim to not remember how they know him.

A subtrope of SayingTooMuch. Compare INeverSaidItWasPoison, where a suspect incriminates himself by revealing confidential evidence only the person involved in the crime would know, and SpottingTheThread, where the spy is an impostor imitating someone Alice knows, instead of acting as a new person. The InvertedTrope is YouJustToldMe, when responding to her real name is what reveals Alice's true identity.
