** In the seventh season, it's shown that leviathans have BlackBlood. This trope is implemented when Frank and Dean have a small confrontation in which Dean cuts his arm to show Frank his blood (though he had to talk Frank out of [[ComedicSociopathy shotgunning off Dean's foot instead). Frank does the same at Dean's insistence.

* Used as a mechanic in ''VideoGame/TheThing2002''. Blood test kits consist of a syringe pistol that draws a blood sample, and then adds a chemical that reacts to it by producing heat. If the blood cooks and turns brown, they're a person. If the syringe breaks, they're a monster. However, the test isn't foolproof for story reasons.

* In the {{Deryni}} novels, there's a [[FantasticDrug drug called ''merasha'']] that causes an immediate and violent reaction in Deryni but has no significant effect on "normal" people; during the persecutions, it was used as a way of uncovering secret Deryni. One application is specifically mentioned in the short story "The Priesting of Arilan": whenever a new priest was ordained, the communion wine at the Ordination Mass was spiked with the drug to make sure no Deryni got into the Church.

* In his account of the making of a Navy Seal, ''Damn Few'', Rorke Denver recounts the night his Seal unit went for a beer to find a guy sitting at the bar who was claiming to be a SEAL. his dress, attitude, demeanor and presentation were subtly wrong and a long-suffering waitress tipped them off that "Billy" used his Seal status to scare people. The least threatening real Seal was sent to quiz the suspicious Billy about where he'd been, who he'd trained with and what his combat specialties were. He failed on every test. When Billy went to the men's room, the largest and hardest Seal followed him in. A little discussion ensued and Billy ended up running for his life, stripped of his fake badges - which later ended up pinned to the real Seals' mess-room wall with a combat knife.
