Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheGreatBritishBakeOff'': The contestants can act considerably different when the stress gets to them.
** Constantly chill Selasi often admits he's making it up as he goes along, plays with his ingredients and spends a lot of time joking with fellow competitors. In the series 7 semi-final he paces around frowning and actually admits he's worried.
** Engineer Andrew was famously exact in his baking, often drawing stencils and to-scale diagrams of his cakes, and even making an excel spreadsheet timetable for the series 7 finale. When he fills his Victoria Sandwich blind in the finale and mutters "screw measurements", it's clear that he's short on time.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Shadow", Blake tries to purchase the help of [[TheSyndicate Terra Nostra]] only to be captured instead. They force him to call Cally on the Liberator, so Blake tells her to send Zen across in the shuttle with the money (Zen is actually their MasterComputer and built into the spaceship). However this backfires because his captor assumes Blake came there by shuttle (he was teleported, but that's not a well-known technology) and therefore that's a CovertDistressCode. Blake has to bluff him into believing the Liberator has [[StarshipLuxurious more than one shuttle]]. It should be noted that the crew of the Liberator never do establish a CovertDistressCode, despite several occasions where they're coerced (or their voice is faked) to get someone to teleport up a BoardingParty.

* People battling depression tend to be listless, gloomy, unmotivated, or feeling other emotions that convey depression. Because depression is not something one can just get over by themselves in a day, it can look quite unusual for the affected person to suddenly display more positive feelings. For people who deal with handling people affected by depression, someone suddenly becoming happy (or at least more at ease) is a ''serious'' red flag indicating the person may be prepared to commit suicide since they've come to terms with it.

This is distinct from UsefulNotes/BipolarDisorder, where [[MoodWhiplash depression and happiness regularly switch places]].

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E12NightmareInSilver Nightmare in Silver]], the Cyberplanner [[HydePlayingJekyll impersonates the Doctor]] in an attempt to steal the planet-destroying bomb's remote detonator from Clara. When she asks him to tell her [[TrustPassword something only the Doctor knows]], he begins to charm her, telling her how funny and pretty she is, and how he's starting to like her "in a way that is more than just-", only to be interrupted by Clara smacking him across the face, which brings the Doctor's personality to the foreground again.

** Inverted when the 10th Doctor spouts phrases against clone Martha in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E4TheSontaranStratagem "The Sontaran Strategem"]], as in "Avanti!" instead of his usual "Allons-y!" and a few times during the episode he can be seen eyeing her as a result of this.

-->'''The Doctor:''' AH! Ow, ''ow'', yes! Ah, it's me! That really hurt! How did you know that was him?!\\
'''Clara:''' 'Cause even if that was true -- which it is obviously not -- I know you well enough to know that [[CannotSpitItOut you would rather die than say it]].

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': During the Tournament of Power, it appears as though [[spoiler:Frieza has turned on Universe 7 when he attacks Gohan. However, Gohan, who has fought Frieza in life-and-death battles in the past, immediately realizes that Frieza isn't being serious in his attacks, and decides to play along, pretending to be horrified at the betrayal as he's overwhelmed and beaten. This leads the Universe 6 fighter Frost to lower his guard, as he believes Frieza has turned to his side... only for Frieza to immediately knock Frost off the ring without even a fight, and then leave Gohan alone.]]

However, Gohan, who has fought Frieza in life-and-death battles in the past, immediately realizes that Frieza isn't being serious in his attacks, and decides which is very strange given Frieza's level of hatred for the heroes; if he really was fighting to play along, pretending kill, he'd be going all out. It turns out to be horrified at the betrayal as he's overwhelmed and beaten. This leads the Universe 6 fighter a charade to get Frost to lower his guard, as he believes Frieza has turned to his side... only for Frieza to immediately knock Frost off the ring without even a fight, and then leave Gohan alone.]]
