** In one episode, a man who'd been suffering for years was so desperate for a diagnosis that he ''took the clinic hostage at gunpoint'' to force House to diagnose him. In the end, the key to his diagnosis was [[spoiler:mentioning that he'd once been to Florida. He'd repeatedly claimed that he'd never been to the tropics, not realizing that Florida counted.]]

* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness'':
** In Act III, Rason confesses that the [[RestrainingBolt Holy Lock]] was never actually made with the express intent to keep a ghoul in check, let alone one as powerful as Tsukune's, but he doesn't actually make this known to the group until ''after'' Tsukune has broken ''six'' links on the lock. To be fair, the other angels had repeatedly ensured him that the lock was indestructible either way, but still.
** In Act IV, Apoch and Astreal were well aware that Apoch's LaserBlade could penetrate Jovian and Jacqueline's force fields, but don't think to mention it to the rest of the gang until the very minute they've split up to save Moka from Hokuto as well as take on Jovian and Jacqueline, and Apoch isn't with either group that's actually fighting Jovian and Jacqueline. While Apoch has the excuse of having been explicitly told by Dark ''not'' to say another word about Jovian and Jacqueline's attack, and obediently doing so because she's Dark's YesMan, Astreal just offhandedly mentions it while the others are bemoaning the fact that nothing they do can break said force fields.

* The crucial clue that HerculePoirot needs to solve the mystery is usually something like this. It's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in TheABCMurders, when he summons the families of all of the victims precisely for the purpose of talking about the trivial things surrounding the murders, in hopes that there will be some small detail that connects all of them. [[spoiler: There is, but it turns out to be a RedHerring.]]

* ''VideoGame/Persona4'': Yukiko's knowledge that [[spoiler:Adachi]] was at the inn spending a lot of time with Ms. Yamano just before she died is the first non-circumstantial piece of evidence the group has towards finding out his identity as the true Killer, but she doesn't make this known unless the player casts suspicion on [[spoiler:Adachi]] in the first place... ''at the very end of the game''.



* In ''Webcomic/{{Galaxion}}'' Patty gets bitten by an alien bug. The team worries a bit, but soon lets it go in favour of more pressing concerns, but the fever she develops after a while is actually plot-important. (And how!)

* In ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'', Michael is the only member of a group trying to prevent [[AIIsACrapshoot The Oracle]] from gaining control who is not from the BadFuture in which it has done so. He also knows that British Intelligence created something called the Echelon Plug-in (he was given a copy of it). Two problems. First, he's the group's ButtMonkey, so nobody else tells him anything, which means he has no idea what the Oracle is, never mind that it exists. Second, he's the group's ButtMonkey, so nobody listens to him, nobody else knows what The Echelon Plug-in is, never mind that it exists. [[spoiler:When they ''finally'' tell Michael about Oracle, Michael makes a comparison of the two programs and the others realize that the Oracle and Echelon Plug-in are ''one and the same''. In other words, the Oracle already exists in Michael's time, which explains a ''lot''.]]

* In ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'', Michael knows that British Intelligence created something called the Echelon Plug-in; he was given a copy of it. Unfortunately, Michael is generally treated like a ButtMonkey and has been so locked out of the loop that he doesn't know what the Oracle is or that it even exists. Of the group trying to prevent the Oracle from gaining control, Michael is the only person who is not from the future, but nobody else listens to him, so they don't know about the existence of the Echelon Plug-in.
