* 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.

* Referenced in the ''Literature/{{Temps}}'' story "Totally Trashed": When Lenora is arguing with her boyfriend about the amount of cat litter in his flat, she sarcastically asks if he thinks it clings to her throughout the day, only detaching when she visits him, or that she takes it round in bags and scatters it when he's not looking to feel more at home. She briefly considers suggesting in a similar tone that maybe she's got a paranormal ability to generate the stuff out of thin air (which she does), but decides that would be pushing her luck.
