* Mentioned in ''Film/TheSlipperAndTheRose'', but subverted. Cinderella never puts the slipper on after losing it; John sees her dancing with it, recognises her, and goes to tell Edward.

* Played with in, of all places, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', where [[FishPeople Zora]] females traditionally craft a set of armour for the one they wish to marry. The [[FantasticRacism prejudiced and arrogant]] elder, Muzu, refuses to accept the help of a Hylian like Link, or believe that he could've been important to his long dead, beloved student Mipha, and withholds his help. He has to accept the truth, though, when it's revealed the Zora armour Mipha made is a [[WackyMarriageProposal precise fit for Link and was clearly made for him]].

* This is subverted in the 1947 Russian version of ''Film/{{Cinderella|1947}}''. The prince's palace guard goes out, like in all versions of this story, looking for the match. But with Cinderella's (actually in this version, "Zolushka's") help, Anna the older sister manages to cram her foot into it. Eventually Anna is exposed as an impostor when she stumbles at court and the shoe pops off. Zolushka never does put the shoe on. She eventually proves who she is by producing the matching shoe.

* ''Series/TheElectricCompany1971'' spoofed the original scene in a sketch about suffixes; Cinderella's stepsister claims that she has a small foot, while the WickedStepmother boasts that she has a small''er'' one, and Cinderella declares her foot as the small'''est'''. After the prince's page finds the slipper to fit Cinderella, [[spoiler:they hand her a traffic ticket, with the prince explaining, "Your pumpkin is illegally parked outside the palace."]]

* ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'': Several episodes had [[ThoseTwoGuys Bulk and Skull]] trying to learn the identities of the Power Rangers. In one episode, Bulk took inspiration from "Literature/{{Cinderella}}" and decided to make imprints of the Rangers' boots. An opportunity presented itself when Lord Zedd's MonsterOfTheWeek in that episode had the Rangers battle illusions of past monsters at the beach. At the end of the episode, Bulk and Skull went to Ernie's juice bar with a cement block with imprints of all five Rangers' boots. One of the rangers turned the music on so the musicians would make Bulk drop the block. While he managed to keep holding the block despite the dancers, he was caught unprepared for Skull's congratulatory tap on the back.

* In Lawrence Block's ''The Burglar Who Studied Spinoza'' Ray Kirschmann presents a rubber glove with the palm cut out as evidence that Bernie was involved in the Colcannon burglary. Since the glove was actually lost by his partner-in-crime Carolyn, Bernie tries to divert suspicion by demonstrating that it doesn't fit his hand.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul [=:Jack=]'', Arima uses a lost shoe to narrow down his list of suspects to one person. [[spoiler: Minami is the only female TransferStudent at their school that wears that size]]. Lantern is shocked that he figured it out from such a minor thing.

* Played with in ''WebComic/GirlGenius'' in the Cinderella side story [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090107 here]]. Tarvek proposes using a lost shot to find Cinderella/Agatha. Gil points out the obvious problems with this leading Tarvek to propose increasingly detailed filters (unmarried, age, hair color etc.) to narrow it down culminating with him pulling out a portrait of her. As Gil then points out if they have a portrait they [[StatingTheSimpleSolution don't actually need the shoe]].

* Used in Creator/MercedesLackey's remake of ''Cinderella'', ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Phoenix and Ashes]]''. Cinderella's wicked stepmother chopped off her pinky finger in the first chapter, so when she leaves her gloves behind at the masquerade ball, there's no question about who they belong to (and it was irrelevant anyway, since the LoveInterest knew full well exactly who he'd been dancing with). Doesn't stop her wicked stepsister from trying, though, and coming out to the hero to claim her gloves still loopy from the painkillers.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', Scrooge had a dream in which he was 'Scroogerella', and was competing against his evil step-siblings the Beagle Boys for the heart of Princess Goldie. At the end of the ball Scrooge ended up leaving behind his gold top hat, which Goldie tried to use to find him. Though in this case there were numerous people who would be able to wear the hat... if it wasn't for the fact that it violently assaulted anyone who tried to put it on other than Scrooge, regardless of hat size.
