* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', in the words of Miles Vorkosigan: "When two Imperial Auditors say they didn't see something, it can become remarkably invisible."

* In ''Literature/{{Komarr}}'', Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan holds a truth-serum interrogation of someone he suspects is holding out on him about what she knows of a terrorist plot. After the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', interrogation, which establishes that she'd deduced the plot from the outside but wasn't personally involved, she asks how much trouble she's in, and he tells her none: in the words final analysis, she's given the investigation more help than hindrance, and making an issue of Miles Vorkosigan: her reluctance to come forward will do more harm than good. Outside of his confidential report to the Emperor, there won't even be any official record that she was a suspect. "When two Imperial Auditors say they didn't see something, it can become remarkably invisible."

* In the third chapter of ''[[FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse The Glass Kingdom]]'', the Zaldian StateSec march into a crowded restaurant and arrest Trixie and Lyra (who are both protected by DiplomaticImmunity). The next paragraph explains why they were willing to do that in full view of everypony.
--> The remaining Guarsai officer turned and looked at the other ponies in the restaurant. He didnít say anything Ė and he didnít need to. This matter was not to be discussed. The arrest of two foreign nationals was not to be mentioned. There had been no abrogation of the Treaty of Valet díÉcurie. The two Equestrians and three Guarsai members had never been here. These things were simply understood by the remaining ponies Ė loyal Zaldians all. Actions such as these ensured that.

* In the ''ComicBook/XWingSeries'' novels; ''Wraith Squadron'', ''Iron Fist'' and ''Solo Command'' Warlord Zsinj concocted a plan to brainwash dozens of New Republic citizens into unwittingly carrying out terrorist attacks throughout the galaxy. Fortunately the New Republic acquired a complete list of the sleeper agents and their targets and the plots were thwarted. At each incident a New Republic Intelligence agent assisted in halting the attacks but officially there were never any intelligence agents present at any of the events and every sleeper agent was foiled by ordinary citizens.
