* ''Literature/MairelonTheMagician'': The Saltash Set can be used a focus to cast a spell which compels someone to tell the truth. It's mentioned that this is incredibly powerful and complex magic, and nobody is entirely sure how Saltash enchanted it. At the start of the series, Mairleon uses part of the set to cast a lesser version of the spell which merely reveals whether or not Kim is lying.

* Averted and played for comedy at the same time in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' after Kenshin first meets Misao. She's been hounding him for information as to Aoshi's whereabouts, but he's been cagey about it (because he knows Aoshi's Oniwabanshu members are dead), and after they've bonded a little, Misao offers Kenshin a biscuit after having previously refused to share any food with him. Kenshin accepts the biscuit...but then immediately suspects that Misao might've laced it with truth serum. Misao snaps, "Don't eat it, then!"

** This was also used decades early on [[spoiler: "Huey" Emmerich]] in the ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain The Phantom Pain]]''. [[spoiler: Problem is he managed to [[BelievingTheirOwnLies convince himself of his own lies]] so it's not very effective.]]

* Discussed in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'': after [[spoiler: Naomi]] is captured as a spy, Campbell mentions that the interrogation (already under a severe time constraint) isn't going well, and they don't have any sodium pentathol on the base. It's doubtful it would work on it's own, but the implication is that they're going to employed EnhancedInterrogationTechniques.

** And just as they were to be declassified, the said "intersting" mind-bending substances were discreetly experimented by [[KenKesey a handful]] [[TimothyLeary of individuals]], and spread through colleges, and... [[NewAgeRetroHippie you know]]..., and it led to telling ''"[[HigherUnderstandingThroughDrugs another]]"'' [[HigherUnderstandingThroughDrugs kind of truth]].
