* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': After a battle that had quite dire consequences, Reynir uses TalkingInYourDreams to check on senior mage Onni, who helped long-distance during the battle, and is also the older brother to the person who got hit with the battle's consequences the hardest. For that very reason, everyone has agreed to let Onni's younger sister Tuuri tell her the news herself over the radio in the real world once Onni recovers from his PowerStrainBlackout, which basically left him in ConvenientComa. As one can expect, the first thing Onni asks Reynir is how his family members are doing and HesitationEqualsDishonesty kicks in when Reynir tries to claim that everyone in the crew is fine. When Onni asks what Reynir is hiding from him, Reynir tells Onni that he's worried about the comparatively minor consequences the battle had for another member of the crew that is not related to Onni, about whom Onni only cares in terms of their capacity to protect Tuuri and Reynir.

* This trope occurs accidentally in ''Film/LittleMissSunshine''. A cop stops the family�s VW bus and Richard is horrifically nervous about the fact that [[spoiler: [[ItMakesSenseInContext Grandpa�s dead body]]]] is hidden in the trunk. Due to his nervous demeanor, the cop quickly realizes that something is amiss and immediately opens the trunk to investigate... only for Grandpa�s porn magazines to tip out and fall to the ground. The cop picks them up, chuckles, and tells Richard that he�s not going to bust him, then takes off and leaves everyone in peace, having completely missed [[spoiler: the sheet-wrapped corpse]] that the porno had been sitting on.

* At one point in the ''Fanfic/InfiniteLoops'', Naruto convinced his entire graduating class except Sasuke and Sakura to treat the academy like a deep cover mission and hide their skills. Shikamaru is somewhat lax in maintaining his cover because "If he's caught over something minor, people tend to stop looking."

** Similarly in ''Film/{{Blow}}'', when George is going through customs, he willingly opens the suitcase with the hidden compartment full of drugs, causing the guards to demand the other bag, which turns out to be full of women's underwear.
