* Light of ''Manga/DeathNote'' gets these a lot, even though it's kind of a given that he's a mass murderer who doesn't really care about anything except his own success.

* Light of ''Manga/DeathNote'' gets these a lot, even though it's kind of a given that he's a mass murderer who doesn't really care about anything except his own success. His most famous one is when his MemoryGambit succeeds "exactly as planned".

* The Team Fortress 2 comic originally sets it up so that it looks like the Medic is a traitor, by making the last thing that a dying Sniper sees is the Medic grinning psychotically down at him. Turns out, however, the Medic was simply happy to see him again; his default "happy" smile ''is'' a SlasherSmile.

*''Film/MissionImpossibleIII'': Film critic [[http://www.davidbordwell.net/essays/anatomy.php David Bordwell describes the moment as follows]]:
-->"The familiar double-bluff of spy films locks in. [[spoiler:Musgrave, not Brassel]], is the mole. You could argue that this twist was planted [...] when [[spoiler:Musgrave turned away from Brassel]] and stared gravely offscreen as the camera lingered on him—the classic shot of a Suspect."

* ''Film/{{Anthropoid}}:'' After Reinhard Heydrich has been assassinated in Prague, the Germans offer a large sum of money and immunity from prosecution to anyone with information. One of the Resistance cell is in the crowd looking at the poster, and the camera zooms in on their face. Guess who talks?

* Parodied in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/StrokerAndHoop'', where the EvilTwin who has taken Hoop's place slips into this mode for a second.. but does it where the other protagonists can easily see him, and they immediately call him out on it and, in a refreshing display of GenreSavvy, turn around back to the prison just to be sure.

* In Franchise/ArchieComics' ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' tie-in storyline, Mayor Bullyani, the man in charge of the city, had a malicious Traitor Shot expression in literally every other panel in which he appeared (even when the main characters should have been able to see his villainous expression-not so much on the subtlety there, guy). [[SubvertedTrope Strangely]], nothing ever came of it and he betrayed no one.
** Fiona gets one in Issue #160 after the cast fight off Bean and Bark when they attack Sonic's birthday, getting shifty eyed when she holds down Bean at one point. The fact the duo suddenly retreats also throws in suspicion.
