* ''Fanfic/WhatTheyWouldntDo'', a ''Daredevil'' fanfic based off the [[Series/Daredevil2015 Netflix series]], deconstructs Matt Murdock's lie detector ability by showing that it can be thrown off when the changes in a person's heart rate from being frightened are not that different from when they're lying.


Added DiffLines:

* Matt Murdock in ''Series/Daredevil2015'', like in the comics, can tell when someone's lying based on their heartrate. We see it in the very first episode, where he realizes Karen is innocent of the murder she's been framed for based on her heart rate. When Foggy finds out the truth about Matt, he's pissed off and sees this ability of Matt's as a blatant invasion of privacy.

Added DiffLines:

* The spider-priests from ''Literature/TheDaggerAndTheCoin'' have this ability, as well as on the flip-side a CompellingVoice that causes anyone who listens to them to believe their words are true. However, this is ultimately deconstructed, because the spider-priests ability doesn't actually detect ''truth'', just ''certainty''; you can utter falsehoods to one of the priests all you want and so long as you ''believe'' it to be true, the priests' powers won't detect it. Furthermore, they're not immune to their own Compelling Voices, and so over time come to believe their own opinions represent objective truth. If you say something that goes against a spider-priest's beliefs, but genuinely believe it to be the truth, they'll be psychologically unable to reconcile the situation and will fly into [[BerserkButton an irrational berserk rage]].

Added DiffLines:

* At one point in ''Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'', Geralt claims to be able to know when someone is lying to him by the pace of their heartbeat, although it's left vague as to whether he's telling the truth (Witchers ''do'' possess SuperSenses as a result of their mutations) or if he's just trying to psyche the guy who just lied to him out.

** Force Sensitives have some insight on the emotional states of the people to whom they are speaking. They can feel when someone flinches or has an emotional reaction, even when those are carefully hidden. However, they have more trouble when the person they're speaking to is of an unfamiliar alien species, and it's ''very'' hard to tell if someone with a massive degree of self-control is lying. This is used the most in [[OutboundFlight Survivor's Quest]], during the GambitPileup in the first third of the book, when everyone is hiding something.

* In ''The Little Ships'', Literature/AlexisCarew encounters a Hanoverese intelligence officer who sees through both of her cover stories immediately just from his own experience as a professional liar. He first spots her as a New Londoner because of her accent, then reads the emotion in her voice to see through her lie about why she sought out the culturally French Hanoverese Lieutenant Delaine Theibaud, even approving of her attempt to make the lie seem convincing by including elements of truth in it.[[note]]To wit, she ''did'' join the Navy because of an inheritance issue with her grandfather's estate, but her grandfather agrees with her and wants to change the law so she can inherit, and she ''did'' [[AMatchMadeInStockholm fall in love with Delaine while held as a prisoner of war]], but came looking for him for military reasons.[[/note]]

* "Fanfic/BrotherOnBrotherDaughterOnMother": Rachel Connor, an illegal human Augment, can tell whether someone is lying with her enhanced senses. Ironically, she herself is terrible at lying: fellow MACO Alicia Gantumur doesn't believe her for a minute when she lies to cover up being an Augment, and [[spoiler:Reshek Taryn says Connor's future self was rejected for the TimeTravel mission because Taryn cleans her out every time they play poker]].

One aspect that goes alongside requirements for the mundane, non-[[AppliedPhlebotinum Phlebotinous]] LieDetector polygraph, is that there are certain elements that need to be in place for a person to register the normal signs of a lie. One being a baseline observation of the individuals behavior, someone who is naturally jittery means slight twitches don't really mean anything. Another is a threat of punishment, if you're not worried about consequences then you're either not afraid of the truth or you have nothing to lose.
