* In French series Literature/TheSunKingsDoves, Henriette's femininity is revealed this way after she pretended to be a boy to become a privateer. Played with in that she is not exactly wounded: she just falls into the sea and almost drowns before being pulled back on deck, and her soaked shirt exposes her chest. Because she has earned the respect of those who might care, she faces no consequence, but has to keep pretending she's a man for the others.

* Happens in ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'' when Miguel gets a cut on his face during the game of ball. This very injury is what tips Tzekel-Kan off to the fact that Miguel and Tulio aren't gods, because "God's don't bleed."

* ''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.]]
