* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', it looks like the crooked Long Feng is going to get away with his crimes when Aang remembers that Appa bit him and blows his robe over his head, revealing a sky-bison-tooth-shaped scar which proves Long Feng complicit in Appa's kidnapping.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has several examples. Because {{Synchronization}} causes injuries inflicted on Stands to (usually) reflect to their Stand Users, this can be a way to reveal a hidden enemy.
** In ''Manga/StardustCrusaders'', Polnareff manages to stab The Hanged Man, causing its Stand User to scream out in pain. The heroes follow the sound and find a man with a similar wound bleeding out on the ground. [[spoiler:This is actually the villain exploiting the trope, as shown when the Stand User reveals himself from a safer position and explains that he attacked an innocent bystander to provide a distraction.]]
** Early in ''Manga/DiamondIsUnbreakable'', when Josuke traps Aqua Necklace [[spoiler:for the second time]], he rapidly spins it around and notices its Stand User go flying out of their hiding place in a nearby tree.
** A little later in ''Diamond is Unbreakable'', Josuke encounters Surface, a Stand in the form of a marionette that mimics the appearance of someone who touches it -- in this case Josuke himself. During the fight, Josuke severs one of the mimic's hands, and later warns Jotaro that they can tell the two Josukes apart by that injury. [[spoiler:Ultimately it never comes up, as Surface is defeated without Jotaro ever noticing its attack.]]

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' - Videl points out that the facial scratches Gohan was trying to explain away were pretty much identical to the ones she saw Saiyaman receive when trying to wrangle an escaped dinosaur. She uses this info to blackmail Gohan into teaching her how to fly (She does ask if that's something that can be taught, to her credit).

** In A's, Signum declines to take a bath with the others, and after Hayate is out of the room, Zafira correctly guesses that Fate managed to cut through Signum's armor. Signum wanted to prevent Hayate from finding out that they were collecting Linker Cores to save her, as they know that she does not approve of their doing so.

* This is sort of borderline, but in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Strikers'', late in the season, protagonist Subaru fights some combat cyborgs who are kidnapping her big sister Ginga. She fails to save her and is seriously injured, which is when we see that [[spoiler: she is a combat cyborg too.]]
