* ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'': Lightning Farron is described over the Yusnaan PA as a woman who "has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair rose-coloured hair]] and is carrying an [[{{BFS}} enormous weapon]]." This, in a game with enough 'women with rose coloured-hair' to be a serial killing's target group.

* ''Series/ThePunisher2017'': When Frank realizes that the man who just set off bombs across New York City is Lewis Wilson, a member of Curtis's support group, he tells David that the bomber is "Lewis and he drives a cab", asking him if he can find him in a database. David points out that this is not a lot to go on. Frank then gives additional details, such as his age range, ethnicity, and his status as an Army veteran, which David admits narrows it down.

* ''TabletopGames/{{GuessWho}}'' is the embodiment of this trope. Players start with a bunch of similar looking people and have to whittle down this list by getting additional information from the other player by asking identifying questions - such as, "Is your person bald?" "Does your person wear glasses?" "Does your person have freckles?"

* Happens a few times in ''Franchise/AceAttorney''. One such time is in the third case of ''Investigations'', where a witness can't recall any details apart from "they were two men". For the most part, descriptions of witnesses tend to fall onto one point, justified by the fact that these points ''are'' very unusual and eye-catching. For example, one case involves a witness claiming that the killer wore a "Nickel Samurai" outfit. A lot of testimonies also tend to have the witness' identification simply be some variation of: "That person was the defendant who's sitting over there."

One such time is in the third case of ''Investigations'', where a witness can't recall any details apart from "they were two men". [[spoiler:This was because she was sitting way too far away to be able to tell even the fact that the "two men" were wearing mascot costumes. In fact, it so happens she had even guessed at the two people being men (which turns out to be incorrect, as one of them was a woman), so in the end all her testimony boiled down to was that they were "two people".]] For the most part, descriptions of witnesses tend to fall onto one point, justified by the fact that these points ''are'' very unusual and eye-catching.

* On ''Series/{{Forever}}'' Abe thinks that someone stole a statue from his store so he has Henry do a SherlockScan to figure out who the thief was. Henry reluctantly takes a look but all he has to go on is a dust void on the table where the statue stood. From this he mockingly concludes that the suspect is someone tall enough and strong enough to pick up the statue without sliding it and thus disturbing the rest of the dust on teh table (ie most adults and teenagers in the world).

** The Man In The Tan Jacket, who is unremarkable and indescribable to anyone who sees him, outside of noting that he wears a tan jacket and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick carries a briefcase full of flies]]. He is "about five or six-foot something, probably with hair and normal human features."

Admittedly, this ''is'' Night Vale, where "[probably has] normal human features" excludes a fair chunk of residents and visitors.

* The pilot episode of ''Manga/TriGun'' has the insurance girls and several groups of bounty hunters looking for Vash the Stampede. Each of them is using a different description of Vash that is technically accurate, but is also vague enough that it also describes one of the bounty hunters. Confusion ensues.
