* The murderer in one Literature/HerculePoirot story goes in disguise as her future victim to a family reunion. She'd practiced the victim's tics like leaning her head to oe side, but did so until it looked right in the ''mirror'', causing everyone else to feel there was something off that day, but had difficulty figuring out what and who.

* The murderer This proves to be a fatal flaw in one ''After the Funeral'', a Literature/HerculePoirot story goes in disguise as her future victim to a novel. When Richard Abernethie dies, his family reunion. She'd practiced gathers for the victim's tics like leaning funeral and reception, at which point Cora Lansquenet, a relative, remarks "But he ''was'' murdered, wasn't he?" The next day, Cora herself is found dead, prompting the police to think that she was killed [[HeKnowsTooMuch because she knew about the plot to murder Richard]]. Poirot himself begins investigating; all the while, Helen Abernethie is troubled by something that happened during the reception, but can't quite figure out what it is. [[spoiler: Both she and Poirot eventually realize the problem--Cora was known for twisting her head to oe side, but did so until it looked the right in when she asked probing questions, but at the ''mirror'', causing everyone else gathering, she tilted her neck to feel there was something off the ''left.'' It turns out that day, but had difficulty figuring out what the "Cora" at the funeral was really her housekeeper and who.murderer Mrs. Gilchrist; she was trying to create the false impression that Richard was murdered to throw suspicion off herself. Unfortunately, she practiced her Cora impression in a mirror, and thus inadvertently reversed all of her motions]].

Added DiffLines:

* In the first book of ''Literature/CodexAlera'', Fidelias figures out that a slave girl was really Lady Aquitainus Invidia because, even though she was shapeshifted via watercrafting, her body language was ''far'' more calm around Lord Aquitainus Attis than would be expected of an actual slave girl.

* Played with in ''Film/MenInBlack''. While the other MIB applicants shoot at targets that obviously look like aliens (who're actually just working out, sneezing, etc.), Will Smith's character shoots the lone 'civilian', an "...eight-year-old white girl, middle of the ghetto, bunch of monsters, this time of night with quantum physics books? She about to start some shit...". Because Will is the one who passes the test, he clearly grasps the purpose - how to tell [[DarkIsNotEvil an alien who isn't a criminal]] from one who is and has an imperfect disguise.
* The T-800 in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' calls John Connor's foster parents, and notices that the dog is barking wildly in the background. (It's been established earlier that dogs react this way to terminators.) He asks John what the dog's name is (Max), and then mimics John's voice, asking what's wrong with "Woofie". When John's foster mom doesn't correct him, the T-800 concludes that John's parents have been killed and impersonated.

* Though they're not impersonating one person in particular, the British spies in ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' are given away by the way they gesture to the bartender for three more drinks. A true German would have used his thumb, index and middle finger to denote three, while the Englishman uses his index, middle and ring finger.

** In "New Earth", Lady Cassandra (who speaks in a rather posh fashion) takes over Rose Tyler's body. Aware that she doesn't sound like Rose, she asks her assistant Chip how she should speak to the Doctor, to which he replies "Old Earth Cockney". {{Hilarity ensues}}. She's later outed because she is no worried about the victims.
