A DeadHorseTrope, given the large number of GenreSavvy characters [[LampshadeHanging who point out]] that whistling for no apparent reason is a surefire method to give yourself away. [[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] the {{wolf whistle}}. An OhCrapSmile is an alternative in this kind of situation.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', accounts of Doctor Strange's duel with Grindelwald, which lasted for days, levelled Berlin, and stripped the latter of his demon super-charging, [[BroughtDownToBadass reducing him]] from PhysicalGod to his normal PersonOfMassDestruction levels, leaving him for Dumbledore to face, all culminate with his having 'walked away whistling'. At first, this is believed to simply be a piece of embellishment, to boost Strange's reputation... then it's established that he really ''did'' walk away whistling. Considering his personality, this is less than surprising.
** Wanda lists a number of Strange's - her former teacher - mildly irritating traits; specifically, that he's a fount of 'knowledge, enigmatic and irritating pronouncements, and pop-culture references.' Harry Dresden, her apprentice and boyfriend, who has been justly accused of all three, starts whistling innocently in the background. Wanda notices this and adds, "don't worry, it's charming on you, darling."

* The action film ''Murder At 1600'' tries to play this trope straight, with a disguised Wesley Snipes trying to infiltrate the White House disguised as a janitor. It fails, and he ends up captured.
