** Subverted in "Momdark", where Mandark kidnaps Mom and disguises himself as her so that he can infiltrate Dexter's Lab and destroy it. But then [[AlliterativeFamily Dexter, Dee Dee and Dad]] keep asking her to do chores so much that Mandark doesn't have any time or energy to destroy Dexter's lab. Then the ''real'' Mom breaks free of her captivity and shows up home, confusing the family before Dad suggests keeping them ''both''.

* ''ComicStrip/DickTracy'' has former actor Harley Naiv disfigured and given a surgery that turns his face into a malleable shape that can allow him to look like anyone. Taking on the name "Putty Puss," Naiv often faces Tracy but his impersonations can be spotted.
** To get money, Putty Puss poses as Diet Smith (who's running for President) for a speech where he makes outlandish statements guaranteed to ruin his campaign. Tracy, however, is able to use his 2-way wrist computer to record "Diet's" voice and while Naiv does a great impression, it still doesn't match Diet's distinctive voice pattern.
** Putty Puss tries to pass himself off as Tracy but Sam Catchem is able to catch it with one simple fact: "It'll be a snowy day in July before Dick Tracy wears anything but a checkered tie."
** Another time, Tracy is able to prove it's him simply by waiting as Putty Puss can only hold his face together for an hour before it starts to "melt."

* Interestingly, ''Series/TheFamousJettJackson'' had one in TheMovie finale where Jett (the actor) met Silverstone (the character he plays) for real as well as an evil shapeshifter, resulting in the shapeshifter changing to match ''the two already-identical good guys'' and complicating the crap out of the bit. To explain, Jett has to guess which one is Silverstone while Silverstone is guessing which one is Jett and anyone who walks in the room is guessing which one is Jett, which one is Silverstone, and which one isn't.

Finally, Silverstone remembers what Miz Coretta told him about how she figured out he wasn't her great-grandson, which allows Jett and Silverstone to get the drop on the BigBad looking like them.

* At one point in [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Part 4]] of ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Okuyasu has to figure out between two people dressed as Speedwagon Foundation members which is an assassin trying to kill Joseph, who's in the same room, with his stand (while the two look nothing alike, Okuyasu had never seen the assassin before and only heard him talk through his stand, and thus doesn't know what he looks or sounds like.) When the assassin discreetly preps his stand to attack, Okuyasu quickly punches him out, and when asked how he knew, proclaims that [[DumbMuscle he's not that smart and was just going to punch out the other guy too.]]

* ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'':
** In [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Part 3]], the group is on a ship and knows there's an enemy Stand user aboard, but whoever it is hasn't shown themselves. Jotaro, who's just finished smoking a cigarette, claims he's figured out the tell: when a Stand user inhales smoke, a vein pops out on their nose. Reflexively, all the heroes put their hands to their nose to check... and so does the ship's captain. In fact Jotaro was lying, no such tell exists, but the captain had given himself away with that action.

** Other things that gave the infiltrators away were that the Germans would pack four men in a jeep and drive it with the black-out slits on the headlights. The well-equipped US troops drove one or two men per jeep, and being used to their side having air superiority didn't bother with the black-out covers.

* Heading to rescue Steve Trevor from shapeshifting Durlans, Wonder Woman and Captain Atom are pretty GenreSavvy knowing who they're dealing with. When they're separated, each is approached by a Durlan posing as the other but see through it fast. In Diana's case, she asks "Atom" if Captain Nate Adam was with Trevor, the Durlan confirming it...not knowing Nate ''is'' Captain Atom. In Atom's case, he's able to quickly see that "Diana's" lasso isn't glowing.
