* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', King Edgar takes charge of a band of thieves under the rather transparent anagram "Gerad." Celes claims it can't be anyone but Edgar when he refers to her as "My lady," though the fact that [[PaletteSwap "Gerad's" clothes are just brown versions of Edgar's royal blues]] didn't exactly help to keep his identity secret either.

** Defied during [[spoiler:the fourth Ninja World War arc]]. Chouji proposes something to this effect to make sure that they aren't being impersonated by white Zetsus, but Shikamaru says that the clones have been able to fool the ninjas with this method, as "Sometimes a lucky guess ends up being right." Only Naruto has a foolproof way of telling the real onesfrom the fakes.

* In ''Literature/TheElenium'' trilogy by Creator/DavidEddings, Sparhawk and other members of the Pandion order of knights have a long-standing code to identify themselves to one another. When traveling in disguise, Sparhawk sends a messenger to the home of a brother Pandion with the message that he "has brought his little mother for a visit." ''Little mother'' is the Pandions' TermOfEndearment for Sephrenia, their tutor in magic. (She happens to be present for the dispatch, and is surprised to learn of the code in her honor.)

* On ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls,'' as [[SeekerArchetype Dipper]] and his friends are about to go into a secret bunker they discovered, he tells them that they have to keep whatever they find a secret; [[GoodBadGirl Wendy]] responds by making a zipping motion on her lips. Later, when they come across a {{Shapeshifting}} monster, it takes Wendy's form and the two wrestle on the ground. Dipper yells for the real Wendy to give him a sign that it's her; one of them winks, but the other makes the zipping motion.

* In ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', the reprogrammed T-800 identifies itself as sent by the future John Connor to help by saying "come with me if you want to live," the first thing Kyle Reese said to Sarah Connor.
** The same exact scene plays out in ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines.''
** And the first episode of ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles''.
*** It's interesting that neither the T-1000 nor the T-X referred to a target by their first and last names, which is how machines in the series usually address people. They might have a brief glitch and do this, so it is a possibility that it could be explored if they do make another Terminator film.
