* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction'', Phantom attempts to manipulate several characters during Act 1 by creating illusory versions of other characters. However, Jin sees through a false Ragna because [[ArchEnemy he was unusually calm]], and Rachel spots another one because he was too polite to her. Tsubaki also notices that a fake Kagura is being strangely formal.



* In ''Webcomic/InOurShadow'' a lab rat tries and bait a raccoon squadron into a trap by pretending to be a wounded raccoon officer herself, using her telepathic enhancements to get details like the squadron name and rank of a legitimate sergeant right. However, the raccoon colonel sees through it immediately because she claims to have an escaped a situation [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat that would definitely have been fatal]], her offhand reference to a raccoon sport used an outdated name and the sergeant she claimed to be doesn't know him well enough to be able to recognise him by his voice through a megaphone.

* Narrowly subverted at the end of ''Film/TheLastJedi''. [[spoiler:When Luke sends an AstralProjection of himself to aid the Resistance on Crait, he has his doppelganger wield the blue Skywalker lightsaber - a detail which would have given him away to Kylo Ren, who had accidentally destroyed that weapon along with Rey at the end of the film's second act. However, Kylo did not notice this at all, likely because his rage towards Luke got in the way of his rational thinking - [[BatmanGambit and this is exactly what Luke wanted]], exploiting Kylo's rage to buy the Resistance enough time to escape Crait. Luke presumably used a projection of his blue lightsaber just to troll Kylo, knowing he would recognize that detail only ''after'' Luke's ploy was exposed.]]
