* In ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', [=NegaDuck=] once dresses up as Darkwing to fool SHUSH. Then he runs into the real Darkwing in the presence of others, but confuses them by anticipating and copying his reactions and words exactly in real time... until the original suggests there's something cute around, triggering an immediate AxCrazy BerserkButton reaction from his EvilTwin.

** Subverted in another episode where Darkwing infiltrates a prison after purposely being arrested wearing a rather lame disguise. At first, the four villains seem to see through it, but then Bushroot figures the real DW would be calling him "stupid names" like "Melon Head", so it can't be him. (Ironically, Bushroot is likely the most lucid of the four.)

* Invoked in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' sequel short ''The Quest for the Six Dofus Eliatropes''. Yugo accused his brother Adamai of being a shapeshifter in disguise when the latter, convinced by Madame Shroud's words that to use them [[spoiler:to rescue Sadlygrove, who had realised his power as the mortal incarnation of the god Iop, from dying at Ogrest's hands]] would result in the destruction of the world, refused to hand over one of the Dofus eggs to the former. Adamai was offended at the notion, and confirmed his identity by telling Yugo about the birthday gift they'd gotten for Alibert (Yugo's adoptive father), and about how Az (Yugo's pet Tofu and life-long friend) had recently begotten chicks.

* In an issue of Creator/KurtBusiek's ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'', the Avengers were thought to be a group of impostors. [[Comicbook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]] was able to prove they were the real deal by reminding a guard of a casual threat she'd made to him years earlier, something an impostor couldn't possibly have known.

* A variation in ''[[Literature/{{Dragaera}} The Paths of the Dead]]'': Tazendra (now a Lavode) is standing guard at Dzur Mountain when Piro and Kytraan arrive to see Sethra Lavode. Being [[BloodKnight Tazendra]], she's ready to just jump down and attack them, but when she hears Piro use the exclamation "Cha!" she recognizes it not as Piro's CatchPhrase, but as his ''father's'', and she's happy to escort her old friend's son in.
