* OlderThanFeudalism: In ''Literature/TheBible'', after {{Jesus}} comes BackFromTheDead, not all of his disciples recognize him right away. On one occasion related by Luke, he walks and talks with two of them all the way from Jerusalem to Emmaus, and they don't realize who they are talking with until he prays before a meal -- apparently, the prayer was something only he would say. (Then, as soon as they recognize him, he disappears.)

* {{Nickelodeon}}'s original movie ''Rags'', a Cinderella-esque story, has the protagonist (a Cinderfella) meet with the music star (equivalent of princess) at a masquerade ball, and on his way out he tells her, "Be you." Later, when she seeks his help to track down the mystery singer Rags, right before the auditions start he repeats his earlier line, inadvertently revealing himself [[spoiler:and later saving himself from having his SecretIdentity and big break stolen by his evil stepfather and stepbrother.]]

* ''Series/IronFist2017'': When Danny Rand first returns to New York City after 15 years abroad in K'un L'un, he has to convince people of who he truly is since the world believes he died in the plane crash that killed his parents.
**When Danny approaches Jeri Hogarth, she tests his claim that he's Danny by quizzing him about her workspace from when she interned at Rand Enterprises:
-->'''Danny Rand:''' Look you remember me, right?\\
'''Jeri Hogarth:''' No.\\
'''Danny Rand:''' Come on! You were an intern in the legal department at my dad's office?\\
'''Jeri Hogarth:''' Where was my office?\\
'''Danny Rand:''' Um...you didn't have one. They put you in the copy room.\\
'''Jeri Hogarth:''' My desk?\\
'''Danny Rand:''' Uh, it was a folding table, with a file under one leg because the flooring--it was too uneven.
** Danny tries this out with the Meachums, but fails because he only gives them basic information that could be looked up online (in Joy's case) or are too stubborn to believe him (in Ward's). He later breaks through to Joy via a shared habit from their childhood regarding brown [=M&M=]'s, the only color they refused to eat.

* ''Fanfic/BringMeBackHome'' has a subversion: when Ladybug goes ice skating with Chat Noir, he gives her the same instruction that Adrien gave Marinette a few hours earlier: "Just step, step and glide." She picks up on it and asks if it's a common thing to say. He says it is, so she doesn't think any more of it.

* 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.
