* In the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' novel ''The Sword and the Dagger'', it's revealed that Hanse Davion, the First Prince of the Federated Suns, has been replaced with an imposter because the imposter can't pilot Hanse's personal Battlemaster, since the neurohelmet a mechwarrior wears to give their mech balance has to be carefully calibrated to the mechwarrior's brainwave pattern.

** Another instance, related to the same event- in ''Your Mother and Mine'', Garnet tells Steven the Crystal Gems' side of the story in a silhouetted flashback. Flashback!Rose Quartz wields her sword in her right hand, while the real Rose Quartz wielded her sword in her left hand, keeping her right hand for her shield (which Flashback!Rose didn't have). [[spoiler: This is because Flashback!Rose was actually the right-handed Pearl in disguise.]]

He never asked whether or not she'd been online with that messenger service that night before apologising for "missing" her online... and the messenger service has an "invisible" mode.

* Discussed in ''Literature/TheEmperorsSoul'' by Wan [=ShaiLu=], a Master Forger whose work requires her to be a polymath with an [[AwesomenessByAnalysis exacting eye for detail]]. When she learns that the Emperor is brain-dead and a government faction is trying to hide that fact, her first instruction is that someone regularly fill the Imperial chamber pot, because servants would notice that sort of thing.

* In the Search and Rescue CreepyPasta series, the protagonist hears a crying child, and goes to investigate. He then notices something wrong: the "crying" is the same sound over and over again, like a song on repeat. He wisely nopes out of there.
