* Possibly invoked in the trailer for ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'', which is narrated by Scarlett Johansson. The viewer might not realize who she's playing at first because she's simply narrating generically and ominously...but even if you didn't ''see'' who was talking, you'd know who it was the minute she said her last line, and it makes TheReveal of her character's identity all the more shocking.

* In ''DigimonWorld2'', at some point late in the game, a member of the Blood Knights, Commander Damien, disguises himself as a Black Sword cadet. Your character gets suspicious, and in an attempt to draw him out, calls out "Commander Damien, sir!". Damien, of course, responds, but not long before he realizes he just blew his cover.

* In ''ComicBook/WarlordOfMars'', Dejah Thoris' grandfather Tardos Mors is presumed dead after a rebellion in Mars' North Pole and is discovered alive inside a ruin in their own kingdom thousands of miles away from where he died. Any doubts that he is a impostor are quickly dashed when he reminisces about a pet that Dejah had as a child that had to be put down, something only Tardos and Dejah know about. [[spoiler: This turns out to be a subversion, as this "Tardos" is revealed to be a clone created by a telepathic entity that probed their memories and had him say that to gain their trust, while the real Tardos is really dead.]]

* Used as TheReveal in ''VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}''. A lot of people suspected that the real identity of [[FutureBadass Hakumen]] was that of [[AxCrazy psycho]] [[SissyVillain Jin Kisaragi]] through faint breadcrumbs, but the real kicker that clued in most people was in the second game, when he says a slightly less elaborate version of Hakumen's famous BadassCreed when fighting [[spoiler:Tsubaki Yayoi]] and at the same time [[spoiler:for the first time successfully resisting the effects of his Nox Nyctores through his will]]:

* In one early ''TheFlash'' story, this nearly gets Barry in trouble when, while in costume and conversing with a crime scene investigator, he gives the guy a wink that only Barry (as a police scientist) would give him whenever in agreement about something. Naturally, the other cop starts putting two and two together, but Barry manages to convince him by the end of the story that he and Flash are [[BlatantLies definitely not the same person]].
* During Stephanie Brown's run as [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2011}} Batgirl]], at one point Clayface forms into an exact copy of her to try to escape a bank robbery. After the two Batgirls shout the standard "Shoot her!" "No, shoot HER!", one Batgirl turns to the detective and declares. "Shoot me. I'll bleed." Detective Gage promptly shoots the other one because no one else would come up with such a stupid plan.

* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', [[spoiler: Barty Crouch Jr., who is disguised as Mad-Eye Moody]], nearly blows his cover when he performs a familiar facial tic (specifically [[ManiacTongue licking his lips]]) in front of his father. Technically he does blow his cover, it's just that the father [[HeKnowsTooMuch doesn't live long enough to spread the news]].
