** Voltaire comes to the correct conclusion that there [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2462 are more seers than just the two he knows about.]] (warning: spoilers). However, his reasons are a little bit off. [[spoiler:Magic just underwent a small change, meaning that someone must have talked it out of making a large change. Voltaire assumes that Arthur wouldn't want to make such an argument, and that [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2275 Tedd was in no shape emotionally]] to do so, meaning that some unknown third seer must have been present to do the talking. There are other seers. [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2455 About a thousand of them, in fact.]] However, the only other seer who spoke with The Will of Magic was [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2451 a kid named Van]] who didn't really do much. In reality, [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2460 Tedd was the one]] who convinced magic not to change.]]

* Jedi Master Sinube in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8594589/10/The-Unsuspecting-side-of-the-Force The Unsuspecting side of the Force]]'' comes to the entirely correct conclusion that Literature/HarryPotter is from the future. Since he knows nothing of the current time period, he can't be from the present, and due to his ability to violate thermodynamics with ease and being able to fly far better than someone from a more primitive civilization should, he can't be from the past. In reality, Harry is from the future but his civilization is far more primitive than the galactic standard. He can do what he can due to magic and for piloting, it's a combination of his experience on a broom and a LOT of advice from HK-47.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda:'' Avitus Rix doesn't believes his mentor, Saren Arterius (yes, ''that'' Saren) went rogue and attacked the Citadel of his own free will, but believes it was because something happened to Saren that made him go mad, since Avitus doesn't known about [[BrainwashedAndCrazy indoctrination]].

* During the ''WebOriginal/GameGrumps'' review of ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' on ''UsefulNotes/NintendoWii'' they remark that the developers can't be accused of racism because they, as a Japanese team, put in the [[SelfDeprecation self-deprecating]] Piston Hondo. They're right that such an accusation would hold little merit, but it's because of ''[[CanadaEh Bear Hugger]]'' as the game (Just the Wii version specifically) was made by Canadian developers Next Level Gaming Inc. In fact, they went out of their way to pick Bear Hugger as the ''only'' character to return from Super Punch Out.

Contrast with HowDidYouKnowIDidnt, where someone bluffs another based on a claim which they don't know happens to be correct.

* In the ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' fic ''FanFic/ShadowOfTheDragon'', Renji is able to tell right away that Sakura ''isn't'' the one sleeping around with everyone, and assumes it's Reiko's spirit [[DemonicPossession possessing]] Sakura. While he's right that it's not Sakura, he's wrong about the cause: Sakura's attacker actually used SympatheticMagic to transform Reiko into a corporeal {{doppelganger}} of Sakura as part of his campaign against her. Syaoran and the others decide to just go with his assumption to protect Sakura's secret.

* In the 17th century, there was a practice of publishing new discoveries with the letters scrambled, giving the writer time to get confirmation. Galileo sent two such letters to Johannes Kepler (one announcing his discovery that Saturn had rings and the other that Venus had phases like the moon). Kepler tried to decode these and came up with totally different sentences, one claiming that Mars had two moons, and the other claiming that Jupiter had a moving red spot. Both of those claims were absolutely right, but there was no way to know that for at least another century.

*''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', in ''Nightshifter'', a shapeshifter is murdering people during robberies. Ronald Reznick, who worked at the bank, sees the eye flare in security footage and assumes that the robber isn't human, coming to the conclusion that it is a mandroid cyborg. Dean tells him that while it isn't completely human, it ain't a cyborg. Ronald, however, is so relieved to hear that he wasn't going crazy so he laughs.
-->'''Dean:''' What are you, nuts?\\
'''Ronald:''' That's just it. I'm not nuts. I mean, I was so scared that I was losing my marbles. But this is real! I mean, I, I, I was right! Except for the Mandroid thing. Thank you.

While Euclase is correct in that [[spoiler:Phos is trying to convince others to travel to the Moon]], Euclase surmises that the suspicious behavior is because Phos is an impostor. In reality, Phos [[spoiler: had undergone a FaceHeelTurn upon learning the truth about their origins and Adamant Sensei]].
