* On the Israeli satire show ''M.K. 22'', when the resident undercover terrorist steals a time machine in an attempt to [[PeggySue prevent the Jewish settlement of Palestine]], only to [[NiceJobFixingItVillain create the circumstances that led to them doing that]]. One of his attempts involves trying to assassinate King Solomon, who is dosing off in front of the two women, by throwing an axe at him and accidentally slicing the baby in half instead. The women are entirely unfazed and praise Solomon's wisdom instead.

* Shows up in ''Series/LazyTown'', of all places. The episode "Who's Who?" features Robbie Rotten making a perfect robotic clone of Stephanie from a toy lookalike, and [[SpotTheImpostor the citizens of the town can't tell which is the real one.]] A dance-off is suggested, with Robbie, Mayor Meanswell, and Bessie Busybody as judges. The clone goes first and ends her routine with a stylish jump move; Stephanie then takes her turn with a similar routine, but doesn't do a jump. The judges think that the true Stephanie must be the first one, because her dancing was better, but Trixie realizes that only the ''real'' Stephanie would have enough self-confidence and faith in her friends' ability to know the truth to deliberately leave out a move she could easily do. This convinces Ms. Busybody and the Mayor, but not Robbie--thankfully, though, the clone turns back into its original toy form at that moment, so the question is settled. Stephanie still thanks Trixie for speaking up and figuring out her plan.

* Happens in a [[ShowWithinAShow theater performance]] in one of the JudgeDee novels: Two brothers are complaining that their brother's half of the inheritance is too large. The judge looks at both lists of bequests, and dramatically... hands each brother the other list.

When Grandpa returns, he is furious over Ben playing hooky when he should have been watching over the RV in his absence. He tears the card in half, giving one half to Ben and Billy.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' this trope inspired Reverend Lovejoy to come up with a solution when he and his wife were fighting with Homer and Marge over a mattress that somehow seems to invigorate the sex life of any couple that sleeps in it. Marge's only complaint was that Lovejoy cut the mattress diagonally, making it look like a grilled cheese sandwich.
* Susie Carmichael from ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' used this method in a ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' comic story where Tommy was arguing with Angelica over custody of his star ball.

* Parodied in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}!'' King Solomon gets presented with the two women claiming to be the mother, and he suggests (like in the original) cutting the baby in half. ''Both'' women react with disgust, declare they're not the mother, and leave, forcing Solomon to take ownership of the baby. To make it worse, neither of the two women claimed to be the mother in the first place; Solomon's guards just picked up two random women off the street.

* In ''N or M?'', one of Creator/AgathaChristie's Literature/TommyAndTuppence novels, a strange foreign woman has kidnapped an Englishwoman's daughter, and is pursued to the edge of a cliff. The foreigner is holding the kid tightly, but the Englishwoman takes the shot, killing her. Later it's discovered [[spoiler: the Englishwoman was a traitor spying for the Nazis, and the other woman was the girl's real mother. Tuppence realizes this as no mother would willingly endanger her ''own'' child like that.]]
