* Barry Allen does this in a classic Silver Age ''[[Franchise/TheFlash Flash]]'' comic. ([[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Flash_Vol_1_133 This one]], if you're curious.) When Iris wonders aloud about the timing of Barry's absences, he just casually tells her she's right: "One and one still makes one! [[CassandraTruth I'm the Flash]]!" Naturally, this flippant claim convinces Iris he's ''not''.

* At one point in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', when [[spoiler:the Gate Key is stolen by reptites]], Azala asks the party what the purpose of said device is. You can either refuse to talk, or you can tell her ''exactly'' what it is. If you do the latter, she won't believe you, noting that [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough no one would actually talk so easily if the device did what you said it did]], and the story proceeds as though you refused to talk (since, from Azala's perspective, that's basically what you did).

* In an issue of ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'', white Martians start controlling the minds of people in an attempt to ruin the lives of the Justice League. They force Dick Grayson to cut the Bat-Rope while Batman is dangling from it, send an angry mob after Jimmy Olsen, etc. One of their tricks is to briefly take control of Lois Lane while she and Clark are at the Daily Planet, and have her rip open Clark's suit and expose him as {{Superman}}. Immediately afterward she comes to her senses and tries to fix it via this trope. With Clark's super-speedy help she is able to make it look like a prank by ripping open an intern's suit as well, revealing that he suddenly has a Franchise/{{Batman}} shirt underneath. However, when she attempts to continue the gag by ripping open her own shirt and exposing herself as Franchise/WonderWoman Clark isn't fast enough and she ends up just... exposing herself.

* In ''Film/TheFugitive'', Dr. Richard Kimble has shaved off his beard and disguised himself as a doctor at a local hospital when a state trooper asks him if he's seen someone with Kimble's description, he says "Every time I look in the mirror, pal--except the beard, of course." Sounds risky, but it might have been more suspicious if he didn't acknowledge it.
