A common consequence of SpotTheThread. Compare AGlitchInTheMatrix, in which the illusion isn't necessarily destroyed. See also ShapeshifterGuiltTrip. A {{Glamour}} is often dispelled this way, causing GlamourFailure.

* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', you do a rather physical form of this: the oni demon Ongyo-Ki summons three illusory copies of himself to fight. Sock the right one and all three copies will be reduced to dust. [[spoiler: The catch is that if you attempt to use any move that hits more than one of the oni, ''it will fail and it will count as a missed attack''. Given a missed attack means a loss of two Press Turns, he can easily destroy you unless you know how to suss out the real one.]]

* In ''NanohaAs'', the Book of Darkness traps Fate inside a LotusEaterMachine but Fate soon realizes [[StoicWoobie that this reality is way too good for her]] and shatters it. In process, it is revealed that she had a special illusion-breaking spell [[CrazyPrepared ready for just such occasion]].

to:

* ''[[Manga/{{Saiyuki}} Saiyuki Reload]]'' combines this with a non-lethal case of HoistByHisOwnPetard. Sanzo, Gojyo and Hakkai are hypnotized by Zakuro, a demon illusionist recruited to get rid of them. Even though the three are ''aware'' that they're merely trapped in an illusion, Zakuro's powers are strong enough to [[YourMindMakesItReal manipulate their senses]] anyway, countering any attempt to break out. When part of Kougaiji's group catches up with them, Dokugakuji [[BigBrotherInstinct proceeds to rescue Gojyo]] by knocking him out. Sanzo and Hakkai decide that this is not an option for them, as being unconscious would only leave them defenseless, but Zakuro's next illusion makes them appear submerged in water and unable to breathe. [[spoiler:Hakkai "drowns" and faints, but for Sanzo, who was found in a river as a baby, the illusion triggers a memory of his master and father figure, Koumyou, which proves enough to make him immune to Zakuro's tricks.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Sanzo:''' "Wrong choice of image. What I saw was... ''light''."]]
