* This is what pings Lois Lane into realizing the Cyborg Superman isn't the real Superman in the "Reign Of The Supermen" arc of ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' - he casually mentions to Superboy that he wished he had better control of his powers when he was his age. Lois remembers that Superman didn't get his powers until he was an adult.

* In Season 16 of ''Webcomic/SurvivorFanCharacters'', one of the things that tips off the characters to the "Bonnie" who was voted out actually being an actress hired by the real (disguised) Bonnie to impersonate her is one of them recalling that he didn't see any tattoos on "Bonnie"'s back while she was swimming.

* In the ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' trilogy, [[ChestMonster Mimics]] can be told apart from real treasure chests by looking for a single small imperfection in the disguise. In ''1'' and ''3'', the chain hanging off the right side of the chest will curve backwards on real chests and forwards on Mimics; while in ''2'', real chests do not have visible locks on them, but Mimics do (which is really quite stupid on their part, since most people probably won't bother trying to open chests they think are locked).

** 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).

* In the first ''Anime/SailorMoon'' series, the Black Moon send out a monster disguised as Chibi-Usa's mother to try tricking and capturing her. Chibi-Usa at first falls for it and almost runs into the impersonator's arms, but stopped herself and said that the impostor forgot one detail: she called Chibi-Usa "Rabbit", aka the Black Moon's name for her. Her mom Queen Serenity refers to Chibi-Usa as "Small Lady" instead.

* 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 [[ColorBlindConfusion colorblind]]]]. Not that it really matters, since the person they were trying to fool had never seen Nanoha or Fate in their barrier jackets.

* In ''SaintsRowTheThird'', The Boss attempts to impersonate [[spoiler: Cyrus, the leader of STAG,]] but pretty much fails to act appropriately in any way. Given how poor the act is, it takes The Boss a surprisingly long time to get caught.

* 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.

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.
