* In the ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'' duology, Moff Disra comes up with a plan to make it appear as if [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] is still alive in order to run TheRemnant from behind the scenes. To this end, he, a ConMan named Flim (disguised as Thrawn), and a former Imperial Guardsman named Grodin Tierce present Flim as Thrawn, who manages to fool pretty much anyone he meets thanks to preparation and his skills as a grifter. In fact, Tierce gambles on one of the officers to secretly take a DNA sample from "Thrawn" in order to verify his identity from the official source. Apparently, Disra and Tierce have already replaced the official sample with Flim's (strangely enough, no one thinks to do a genetic analysis to see if the sample is Chiss, since Flim is human), so they aren't worried. Except it turns out that there is another genetic repository located in the Uncharted Space, hidden away by Thrawn.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', when Zoom has invaded Earth 1's Central City with an army of criminal meta-humans from Earth 2, Cisco and Caitlin try to trick the army's leader Black Siren (Laurel Lance's double) by pretending to be their villainous doubles ([[spoiler:both already dead by that point]]) Reverb and Killer Frost, respectively. This appears to work, at first, then Black Siren tosses a random object at Reverb, and he catches it. Black Siren explains that the people of Earth 2 have the opposite dominant hand from Earth 1, and "Reverb" has caught the object with the wrong hand. Cue the OhCrap from Cisco and Caitlin.

This is the first and last time this is referenced or mentioned, especially with the addition of multiple alternate Earths, where this distinction wouldn't make sense. Averted with the Black Siren herself, who is freed by Prometheus in a later ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' episode and successfully impersonates the Earth 1's Laurel. While Felicity has suspicions, there's nothing about "Laurel" that gives her away. It's not until she remembers that S.T.A.R. Labs has the Black Siren in the Pipeline that she realizes who the impostor is, at which point the Siren attacks, glad to be finally rid of the masquerade.

* In ''Film/TheMasterOfDisguise'' during the climax, Devlin caught Pistachio in disguise as a henchman because he was still wearing part of his previous "Cherry Pie Man" disguise. That and he knows the henchman is not married.

That and he knows the henchman is not married. Earlier, he almost manages to fool Devlin's {{Mook}}s by pretending to be a [[Film/{{Jaws}} Quint]]-like fisherman, but then they notice that his arms are extremely hairy, just like the man they were just chasing.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', when the masked men take on Nanoha and Fate’s identities, parts of their barrier jackets are not the correct color. This is likely because [[spoiler:cats, and by extension {{Cat Girl}}s, are colorblind]]. Not that it really matters, since the person they were trying to fool had never seen Nanoha or Fate in their barrier jackets.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. Crowley has two of his demons shapeshifting as Sam and Dean Winchester to get information from Kevin Tran. Kevin tumbles to the ruse because the demons are too nice to him, which Crowley can only find ironic.

** A currently manga-only story (as the anime hasn't caught up to it yet) features the culprit being unmasked because A) he responds to a phrase that sounds like a person's name to someone who speaks standard Japanese like the Osakan Heiji and Kazuha and B) when given oversalted ramen, echoes Heiji and Kazuha's sentiments that it's "overspiced" (in Osaka-ben, you only really use the word "salty" to describe salt water and in food, call salt a spice).

** During World War 2, there was the "unfakeble" Soviet documents, any attempt of the Germans to pass forged documents ended up been exposured. What is surprising is that fake recognize even ordinary soldiers. Only after a long time it became a well-known secret. Paper clips on documents in the Soviet Union was made of ordinary steel (and in war they were rusty), and the Germans making clips for documents(including the forgery of Soviet documents)have used stainless steel. That is unmistakably noticed even a simple soldier
