** Kay and Cameron are following a thief to a subway station, Kay saying it's just them. Cameron points out how the janitor seems to be avoiding actually sweeping trash; a teenager is clearly a guy in his 30s who's not really playing a handheld game; a "homeless" woman has a brand-new manicure; and a woman in a fancy suit is pushing a cheap stroller. He can't quite figure why a suited man is staring at them until Kay states it's her ex-boyfriend and they've walked into a CIA sting.

--->'''Jeremy:''' Oh, it's quite obvious from the rings adorning your fingers. Large diamonds of that size are mined in South Africa. And the unique round brilliant-cut of those diamonds is possible only with [[SecretArt the latest polisher devloped by the Woodley Company]]. [...] Thus, if among the guests at Earl Phantomhive's dinner party, there is one individual wearing such rare rings, he is most likely to be president of the Woodley Company... you, Mister Woodley.

** Reconstructed in ''VisualNovel/DaiGyakutenSaibanNaruhodouRyuunosukeNoBouken'', where Sherlock Holmes scans the crime scenes, but is somewhat off the mark with the details. It's up to the main character to fix his mistakes and get to the correct deduction. Iris Watson, on the other hand, does a much better job at it.

** Tyrion Lannister:
*** In Season 2, he correctly figures out Lancel is sleeping with Cersei due to some choice phrasing Lancel uses and because he smells of lavender oil, Cersei's favourite scent.
*** When talking with Cersei in Season 7, he's quickly able to deduce she's pregnant by the way she touches her belly and because when he pours some wine, Cersei doesn't reach for it.
