* In an interestingly meta example from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', even deities can apparently make this mistake. At one point, on a quest to destroy a powerful artifact of the [[DemonsLordsAndArchdevils Daedric Prince]] Vaermina, your NPC companion is in the middle of the ritual to banish it when a woman's otherworldly voice whispers in your head that he's tricking you and that you should kill him before he uses the artifact against you. Since there are at least two female Daedra who can be classified as good or at least non-evil and you might not have heard them yet, an unaware player might be fooled into following these orders (and thus losing a potential ally for the rest of the game)...had she not then added, "[[ThirdPersonPerson Vaermina]] commands you!"

*While the four are usually pretty good about not revealing information to outsiders in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', the disguised George and Ringo get so comfortable with the Six Step Combo that Ringo accidentally reveals that they're much older than they look, and George accidentally reveals that his guitar is not the one-of-a-kind prototype that he claimed it was. [[spoiler: Luckily, the Six Steppers already knew they were frauds and didn't care.]]
