* CoolOldGuy Joseph Joestar is forced to rely on this in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' Part 3. After [[spoiler: being killed by [[BigBad Dio Brando]] and having his blood drained by the vampire, he undergoes an emergency blood transfusion to try to bring him back to life]]. Upon awakening and seeing [[spoiler:Dio's corpse]], his first thought is to play a joke on his grandson, Jotaro, and pretend to be possessed by [[spoiler:the vengeful spirit of Dio]]. Jotaro is ready to punch his face in, but Joseph narrowly avoids being killed a second time by answering questions from Jotaro, such as "Who starred in the 1981 remake of Tarzan?" (Bo Derek) and "Who sang 'Eat It?'" (Music/WeirdAlYankovic). As Jotaro puts it, "Only you would know such stupid things."

** And in ''Comicbook/SpiderManTheCloneConspiracy'', Spidey is pretty blasé about fighting a clone of [[spoiler: Dr Octopus]]; after all, that's not even the first clone of a dead villain he's faced that day. Even when [[spoiler: Octavius calls him "Dr Parker"]], he just figures the Jackal told him. Then [[spoiler: Ock uses the phrase "the superior Spider-Man", which only the actual dead Dr Octopus (or a relatively recent BrainUploading thereof) would know about]].

* When the infamous Unabomber Manifesto was published, David Kaczynski was surprised to find it contained the phrase "You can't eat your cake and have it, too" as opposed to the usual idiom "You can't have your cake and eat it too". David had only ever heard that alternate phrasing used by his own mother and his brother Ted. This coupled with the similar themes to an essay Ted wrote in college led David to report his findings to the FBI, ultimately leading to Ted Kaczynski's arrest for the Unabomber crimes.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8793565/chapters/20159878 How the Light Gets In]]'' Laurel is suddenly and inexplicably resurrected. While Dean, Oliver, and Sara all quickly decide it really is her, Felicity insists they test her somehow. She initially decides to do it by offering [[RecoveredAddict Laurel]] a glass of wine, only for Sara to flip out insisting with the trauma she's been through, that's unacceptably cruel. Dean eventually settles on this:
-->'''Dean:''' Laur, imagine it's the Superbowl. The Seahawks are playing. We're throwing our annual party.
-->'''Laurel:''' 'We throw amazing Superbowl parties.
-->'''Dean:''' Everything's going great. And then I tell you I'm rooting for the other team. What do you do next?
-->'''Laurel:''' ''(disgusted)'' [[SeriousBusiness I immediately file for divorce.]]
-->'''Dean:''' That's my girl.

** In "Thin Ice," the Doctor isn't sure if a particular nobleman in 1814 London is actually an alien in disguise. The mystery is quickly solved, however, when said nobleman is shocked to see Bill (who is black) in his house and demands "that thing" leave. Both the Doctor and Bill immediately agree that an alien wouldn't care about skin color; [[HumansAreBastards that level of knee-jerk racism is exclusively human]].
