* 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.

* The first ''Film/CountYorga'' ends with with Micheal warding off his vamprizied friend Erica and her fellow vampire bride with a cross and forces them back downstairs with Donna behind him. The camera does a close up of Erica's face as she looks on Donna before the camera lingers on her as she has a blank expression. [[spoiler: Not long after Michael chases the two vampires off, Donna sprouts her fangs and attacks him.]]

* 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.

* Pretty much any close-up of Joe Pantoliano, in any movie or television show he appears in, is a Traitor Shot unless it's from ''Film/TheFugitive'', its sequel ''Film/USMarshals'', or ''The Handler'', the only three times in his career he ever plays good guys.

* In the VideoGame/{{Mario}} fangame ''VideoGame/MarioTheMusicBox'', look for anything out of the ordinary to spot the traitor, including GlamourFailure, hidden eyes, {{psychotic smirk}}s and/or slasher smiles, and ScaryShinyGlasses.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'', after the game informs the player there's someone who sold them out in [[HowWeGotHere the flashbacks]], it's revealed who it is after Sae Niijima leaves the interrogation room. [[spoiler:Goro Akechi says he's down there to question the Protagonist, but as Sae walks past, he chuckles and says "Foolish woman," with his in-game portrait looking very menacing.]]

* One could argue some of Palpatines scenes ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'' come of as this. It's treason, then?

** ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'': During Qui-Gon's funeral, Mace Windu confirms that Darth Maul was a Sith. Yoda states that "Always two there are: a master and an apprentice," and Mace wonders which one Maul was. The camera then [[AnswerCut cuts and focuses]] directly on Chancellor Palpatine. Given that this was a ''prequel'' for one of the most popular and financially successful movies ''ever'' (and also that the actor playing Palpatine was the same actor who'd played him in ''ReturnOfTheJedi''), this was not so much "a reveal the hidden traitor" shot as a "fanservice for everyone on the planet, who already knows ''exactly'' who the traitor is" shot.
