* ''WesternAnimation/MightyMax'': One of [[RunningGag Virgil's summons to Max]] involves a video tape delivered to Max's home. [[TheSmartGuy Virgil]] correctly responds to Max's queries and reminds Max that this is a recording when Max wonders if it's a live broadcast. Almost all of Virgil's messages have traces of this.

* ''ComicBook/{{Nemesis}}'' takes this to absolutely ludicrous degrees at the end of the comic, albeit in letter format instead of recorded videos, where [[spoiler: the main protagonist receives a letter from a mysterious individual congratulating him for defeating the titular supervillain, revealing that he is from a group of rich and bored indiviuals who get their kicks off by becoming murderous psychopaths.]] The kicker? The message was written 10 years ago and somehow managed to predict several other events that took place in the comic.

A character is playing a message recorded for them by someone else. Through precognition, [[TimeyWimeyBall weirdness induced by time travel]], or really good prediction of what the viewer will say, the recording appears to respond to what the character says or does in reaction to what is being played.

** In the end of R2, he pulls the same trick on [[spoiler:Schneizel]], who is a much harder opponent to fool. He even notices Lelouch's tactic briefly, saying "Lelouch, now you're talking in circles..." but doesn't catch on in time to prevent Lelouch from sneaking up behind him. In the original Japanese, this trope is pushed to the limit, as Lelouch predicts ''exactly'' what the other party will say and at one point manages to interrupt him at ''exactly'' the right time. Even given the fact that [[spoiler:Schneizel is Lelouch's brother, who he knows quite well, whereas Mao was a total stranger]] this was quite an accomplishment. [[TranslationCorrection The dub makes Lelouch's side of the conversation more vague, so he doesn't seem so eerily prescient.]]

* Lelouch from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' does this at least three times.
** In season 1 Stage 3, he does it to Kallen while she's in the shower, by geassing his maid to call the phone in the bathroom and play a simple recorded message from Zero. Kallen isn't too bright, and doesn't suspect a thing.
** In season 1 Stage 15, he does it over a video conference to Mao, to get Mao to think he was far away so he wouldn't hear Lelouch's thoughts as he approached. Lelouch interrupted Mao a lot and generally ignored their answers, simply pushing his line. He also remained silent for too long, causing Mao to ask, "Cat got your tongue?" before he resumed the pre-recorded message.
