A character arrives at a security checkpoint where he has to verify his identity in order to gain entrance. He takes out his ID card, runs it through the scanner and is surprised to find that it is being denied. The receptionist then tells him that he is already checked in. This can only mean one thing: An impostor is on the loose! Curiously, the guards never seem to [[BecauseImJonesy suspect the second person/group of being the true impostor]].

* A variant is used in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''. Link is shocked to discover that a room at the Stock Pot Inn has already been reserved for him. Turns out there's a Goron also named Link[[note]][[HelloInsertNameHere or whatever you named the hero]][[/note]] who made the reservation. You just happened to arrive before he did. Steal his room at your peril, [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential 'cause you can find him outside shivering in the cold later if do]]. Remember that this is the festival season, and all the hotels were booked solid a long time ago.
** The Goron doesn't get angry if you steal his room, though: if you do so, his VerbalTic makes him say his name as "Link-goro!". The receptionist doesn't understand him and sends him away saying there's no reservation under that name.

* In ''Film/BlackKnight'', MartinLawrence's character Jamal is a FishOutOfTemporalWater who hasn't yet realized he's in Medieval England. He assumes that the castle is a rival theme park and, when asked by the guards where he's from, replies that he's from Florence and Normandie (an intersection in South Central). They immediately assume he's the messenger from the Duke of Normandy whom they have been expecting. After figuring out that he really is in the past, Jamal continues the ruse to avoid being beheaded. Then the real messenger arrives a few days later, and Jamal is discovered in bed with the princess. Not only is his ruse exposed, but his tryst costs the king his alliance with the Duke of Normandy, who was expected to marry the princess (who must be a virgin, of course, although Jamal claims that she already wasn't).

Added DiffLines:

* The first time the ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' crew pretend to be FBI agents, they resolve the situation (and have the mark arrested) before finding out that the real Feds are on the way. To avoid this trope, they quickly tell the cops that their associates are about to arrive and take off. The real agents are a little confused but decide to play along and accept the glory.
