** Played with fantastically towards the grand finale, when Hawkeye expertly uses this to her advantage against Envy when they get split off during Mustang's RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
--->'''Hawkeye''': When it's just the two of us, the Colonel calls me by my first name.\\
'''Envy''': ''[changes back to his normal form]'' So the two of you have that kind of relation-\\
'''Hawkeye''': ILied. ''[shoots him]'' But it was very nice of you to fall for it, Envy.

* FBI turncoat Robert Hanssen was caught this way. After several US agents had been captured and executed by the Soviets, the Bureau knew they had a mole on their hands. No one suspected Hanssen, however; he was even tasked with finding the leaks for a time. Eventually a communique between Hanssen and his handlers was intercepted, but there was no way to tell who the mole was--until an agent recognized a racial slur the mole made as something only Hanssen would say.

* In ''FanFic/MidnightStarTheFrozenEmpire'', Chrysalis's secret that all changelings are actually her children is something that she has kept hidden for milennia. When Midnight Star reveals this fact to her after explaining her own past, it convinces Chrysalis she's telling the truth as her counterpart would have been extremely desperate to even think of telling it to a pony.

** Made even more amazing by the fact that Weird Al himself tweeted about the scene.


Added DiffLines:

* In the end of the first season of ''Anime/{{K}}'', the Silver King shows up [[spoiler: in the body of a high school boy]], and before he can worry about how to convince the others in the room that it's really him, the Gold King calls the phones in the room. When Kusanagi answers, the Gold King tells him, "There should be a man standing somewhere near you with a silly look on his face. Put him on the line, will you?" Sure enough, Kusanagi looks up and the Silver King is wearing that exact expression - after not having seen the Gold King for about ''seventy years'', it still holds true.
* In the second episode of ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'', Haruto has somehow [[BodySnatcher found himself in the body of]] a Dorssian spy (who we will later come to know as L-elf). After rescuing his friends, Haruto tells them it's really him. How does Kyuma decide to test this? Several rounds of rock-paper-scissors. Haruto loses all of them. "Alright, it's you."
