* ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'' has this happen in Episode 14: Yuna is trying to get Tarou to eat healthily and asks him what he normally eats. Although he whispers the answer in her ear, his dialogue is still just about audible, before Yuna repeats what he said out loud. It is easy to miss, so it doubles as RepeatingSoTheAudienceCanHear if you didn't catch it the first time.
-->'''Tarou:''' (whispering) I like to eat ketchup and candy.\\
'''Yuna:''' What!? You can't get big and strong on a diet of candy and ketchup!

* Like the above TF2 example, ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' will occasionally have the announcer, Athena, announce that there is only so much time left (a minute, 30 seconds, or 10 seconds) - only to have another character say something to the same effect, but with a bit more flavor. It can also happen if the enemy team has a sniper (Widowmaker or Hanzo - Ana doesn't trigger the voicelines), turret (only Torbjorn, as Symmetra has too many turrets to be constantly announcing each one), or a shield generator or teleporter. Unfortunately, if not taken care of, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhYdh4DDH1Y it can be taken to]] CaptainObvious lengths.

Often done by TheWatson. Compare RepeatingSoTheAudienceCanHear, for when we ''can't'' hear the other side of the conversation, and ParrotExpowhat, where the exposition is so shocking, {{sesquipedalian|Loquaciousness}}, or obscure that the other party can't repeat it.
