* ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt'': In one episode, the treasure of the week is a pot of gold and Dastardly and Muttley force two leprechauns to reveal its location. Needing shovels to pick it up, the villains tie a handkerchief to a nearby tree and make the leprechauns promise they won't remove it. When Dastardly and Muttley return with shovels, they find several trees with one identical handkerchief each.
* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': In [[Recap/WanderOverYonderS2E8TheBattleRoyale "The Battle Royale"]], Wander gets Sourdough the Evil Sandwich out of the way by dropping several other sandwiches on him so it'll take a long time for his servants to find him.

A variation on HiddenInPlainSight. DoppelgangerSpin is this tactic applied to battle. For hiding ''people'', the equivalents are LostInACrowd, IAmSpartacus or the use of multiple {{Body Double}}s. ShellGame is when a stack of needles is made while a witness watches. PixelHunt is the video game equivalent. SerialKillingsSpecificTarget is when the 'needle' that's being hidden is a specific murder amongst what appears to be the work of a serial killer.

** Harry is initially concerned that Voldemort has done this with his horcruxes, possibly using old tin cans or a boot and making them nearly impossible to find. Dumbledore points out Voldemort's need to be special wouldn't allow him to put them in anything other than valuable, unique objects.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Steven and the Stevens", the legendary glass of time is hidden in an underwater temple filled with dozens of fake timeglasses. Grabing the wrong one causes the windows to vanish, transforming the temple into a DrowningPit. Implied to be a SecretTestofCharacter, as the device is shown to have enormous TimeCrash-inducing potential even in the hands of good-natured Steven. Dozens of alternate Stevens get killed through TemporalParadox -- and each one may have taken an ''[[ExpendableAlternateUniverse entire timeline]]'' with them. [[RewardingInactivity The only winning move was not to play.]]

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' had Scrooge McDuck mark the entrance to a leprechaun's hidden passageway with a handkerchief tied to a branch and he forbade the leprechaun from messing with it. So the leprechaun marked all of the surrounding trees in the same way, instead.

* In ''ReturnToOz'', there's a scene where Dorothy had to rescue the Scarecrow (and her friends who'd previously failed the test), who'd been turned into an ornament- in a large room filled with various ornaments. And if she picked the wrong one three times, ''she'd'' get turned into an ornament too. The clue was [[spoiler:the correct objects were all green]].
