* In the ''Series/KCUndercover'' three-parter (or four-parter, depending on where you see it, as the hour-long first part was shown internationally as two half-hour instalments) "Double Crossed," K.C. has been kidnapped and substituted with a double as part of a revenge plan against Craig and The Organization. Marisa is the first to figure out her best friend's been replaced when K.C. actually likes the idea of going to a party; although she herself is snatched before she can do anything, the Coopers themselves find out when J.U.D.Y.-recorded surveillance footage reveals K.C. - a fervent vegetarian - eating meatballs. When the Coopers find K.C. and her double, the double tries to "prove" she's the real deal by relating a childhood story about K.C. However, that just proves she's the fake as the Coopers know the real K.C. was totally embarrassed by the incident and vowed she would never tell that story to anyone.

** In season 5, Hera takes over the body of a dead man, returning to visit his wife. At first, it seems the wife believes in it when Dyson comes in (having seen the man dead already) and pressing Hera on her true identity (although Dyson does at first think it's Zeus instead). The wife comes in to offer a bag of marshmellows which Hera starts downing. She/he then grabs the wife by the throat and boasts about killing her before Dyson's eyes...only for the wife to stab Hera with a shard of glass she'd pocketed before. "My husband hated marshmellows."

* ''WesternAnimation/TheArabianKnights'': In "The Spy," Zazum is accidentally separated from the Knights during a confrontation with Bakar's guards. A ShapeShifter in Bakar's army transforms into Zazum so as to infiltrate the Knights' home base. Unfortunately, he didn't learn the habits of "the real beast": when offered hay and an apple, he refuses both. Furthermore, when his tail is pulled, he doesn't bray and go into his tornado spin. Nida doesn't have this issue when she impersonates the changeling.
