** May have been used in older seasons, possibly more than once. The psychic paper has a very similar effect, even down to not working on the strong minded (ie. Shakespeare); for the first few seasons of the New Series it seemed to be used every other episode. When the Doctor tries to use the paper to make a kid believe he (the Doctor) is a responsible adult, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the paper breaks. Because it could not tell such a big lie.]]

* During the raid on Eternia Central Command in ''VideoGame/BravelySecond'', the party finds itself coming upon a group of guards on patrol. Tiz, who had just woken up, attempts this on the guards to get them to go away. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments It works.]]

* The ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'' novelization portrays this from the perspective of the tricked, a guard at Senate. The guard rationalizes his letting the Jedi in by thinking that since the Senate is so secure the Jedi couldn't possibly escape or cause trouble and they're being so reasonable about it that he doesn't want to come off as an unreasonable fellow himself by trying to arrest them just now when it can be done later.

** In ''Literature/StarWarsKenobi'', Ben attempts the trick twice against Sand People to avert imminent violence and convince them to release captives. It works the first time against a young warrior, but completely fails to affect their leader A'Yark, forcing Ben to try and reason with her.

** In S 12, Ep 8, Gibbs is talking to a "suspect" who didn't do anything wrong. Tony comes in, ready to take their detainee back to Fairfax but Gibbs says no. So tony makes a ShoutOut.

Note that this trope is named after a scene from ''Franchise/StarWars'', which is frequently parodied. Usually, a blockhead with no special powers is detained by the police, he waves his hand in Obi-Wan style, and the police reacts with something like "[[FlatWhat What?]] [[RealityEnsues Shoot to kill]]!". That is '''NOT''' an example of this trope, that just a ShoutOut to Star Wars. Help to prevent TropeDecay.
