*** Also from ''Going Postal''. People apparently keep going into the library of Unseen University (which contains every book that exists and many that don't) to ask questions like "Do you have a book I remember reading once? It had a red cover and it turned out they were twins".[[note]]If they receive an answer, it's probably "Oook."[[/note]]

* Subverted in ''Videogame/{{Fallout 4}}'' when you're describing the man who kidnapped your child and murdered your spouse to Nick Valentine. The only worthwhile descriptions you're able to give him is that he's a bald guy with a scar, which while seemingly a somewhat common description automatically leads him to him figuring out that you must be talking about Conrad Kellogg.

** The "red helicopter" report is in fact a glitch, stemming from the game's internal descriptors of the vehicle; despite the fact the Hunter is uniquely green, it is considered by the game to be 'red' because it is set by default to have the color code corresponding to red, thus why it is described by the police dispatch as a red helicopter. In fact, when crashing the vehicle into objects, red paint chip particles can be seen.

:: Other sources (of varying credibility) also state that the witnesses described him as wearing about 20 different kinds of hats (while still hatless, mind you), and having a clean-shaved PermaStubble, among other contradictions. Perhaps unsurprisingly, his murder remains unsolved.

* More than one news paper has published a police artist's sketch of a suspect wearing a full head ski mask, a blank oval shape with two eye holes.

--> By joining the different witnesses' statements, you can find the following: the murderer was a man, between 175-190 cm tall, who was wearing either a black coat or trenchcoat, and moved in a way that some described as clumsy, limping, "rolling", and others thought was smooth, and that was between 30 and 50 years old.

* We know next to nothing about the child murderer from ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys''. All we know is that he's male. The [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2 second game]] gives us some possible hints…but they still night not tell us the whole story. For one, he's somewhat taller than Freddy is. Second, he drives a purple car. Third, [[spoiler: he has a badge]]. And finally, [[spoiler: he seems ti be holding a phone-like object]].

-->'''Sora:''' ''(pulls at his own spikes)''

* ''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.

* ''Film/{{Cellular}}'' "He's the one on a cell phone." "EVERYONE'S on a cell phone."
* Played with in ''{{Taken}}''. When the daughter is being kidnapped, her father tells her specifically to scream identifying characteristics into her cell phone, so he can have something to work with when rescuing her. That doesn't really add much evidence to his searching though, and the real lead comes from when the kidnapper talks into the cell phone after kidnapping the daughter. She does manage to describe a tattoo the man has, which lets Brian identify the gang.

* ''Creator/MichaelMoore'' points out in his book ''Stupid White Men'' that every crime he ever hears about seems to be committed by an unidentified black man. This leads to Moore theorising that every reported crime in America is actually being committed by the same man.

* DoubleSubverted in ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris'' where a cookie truck is held up by a man leading a group of scouts. The driver gives a thorough description of the man in question right down to having a limp, however since he started off by saying that the guy was black the police didn't hear anything else.

** [[TheNarrator Cecil]] and [[EvilTwin Kevin's]] descriptions of each other are basically "this is a guy who looks like me only creepier". Without telling the audience what "looks like me" actually means. The only concrete things we get is that they are neither tall nor short, fat nor thin, and have at least two eyes; Kevin's being completely [[BlackEyesOfEvil black]].
