* The heroine of ''Film/SleepingWithTheEnemy'' is supposedly hydrophobic, due to almost drowning when she was a child. So her abusive husband has no reason to doubt that she drowned after falling overboard during a late night sailing trip. It turns out she'd secretly been taking swimming lessons and seized the opportunity to escape from him.

* After the destruction of his eidetic memory chip and medical retirement from [[SecretPolice ImpSec]] in ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Memory]]'', Simon Illyan makes a point of playing up the damage done to his mind when it seems useful or convenient.

* ''Literature/Alex Rider'': The main character has been kidnapped and several agencies are looking for him. The bad guys need to get him through an airport without arousing suspicion.
