* In Baynard Kendrick's novel "Death Knell" the killer sets up a death trap knowing that a writer likes to work on the balcony of his apartment and that his dog is terrified of the bells of a church nearby. [[spoiler: He puts a gun pointed at the writer's chair and the triggering mechanism in a place the dog runs to hide. The bells ring, the dog hides and the gun goes off - all while the killer has an alibi.]]

Though if you're paying attention to the ''opening'' montage, [[FridgeBrilliance it may not be as surprising]].

* One that's really only known in Japan is the culprit in the old mystery game ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Portopia_Serial_Murder_Case The Portopia Serial Murder Case]]'' (although some may have heard about its ShoutOut in ''Manga/HaruhiChan''). The culprit is the one you'd least suspect, because not only is he your assistant, he's also (since the main character is an unseen HeroicMime) ''the guy executing the player's commands and speaking for the main character''. The revelation was so out of left field that the phrase "Yasu is the culprit" is something of a [[MemeticMutation minor Japanese meme]] for this sort of trope.

** This series loves this trope so much that "Kiseki Paranoia" became a thing. In Trails of Cold Steel, [[spoiler: Crow is C and Misty/Vita is an Anguis of the Ouroboros.]]

* The lesser-known ''Anime/LilyCAT.'' takes all of the tropes from the movie ''{{Film/Alien}}'' and puts them in a blender. There's even a cat on board the ship, and a secret android working to bring back the murderous alien at the expense of the crew. The catch... is that the cat ''is'' the android.
