Esposito tackles the first person he sees with said backpack, but it's full of tissue paper. Then they see that almost everyone in the area has one. It turns out the kidnapper had posted online about a flash mob, enticing unwitting strangers to create the needle stack.

* In ''UltimaUnderworld II'' there's a room with a single Corp rune among a whole pile of Kal runes. All runes on the floor use the same sprite, but Kal and Corp are virtually indistinguishable anyway.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls2'' uses this as a boss fight gimmick. The Royal Rat Vanguard is a rat with a mohawk and a good deal more health than most rats, which would make for a rather underwhelming boss if the battle didn't take place in a dark room packed ''full'' of rats. The fight ends up being less about the usual display of skill and more a desperate attempt to survive a pack of angry rodents long enough to find the one critter that will make all the others leave once dead.
