* This is the ''modus operandi'' of Vlad and Kiera in the ''{{Dragaera}}'' novel ''Orca''. They basically spend the whole book going around in various disguises talking to the conspirators, pretending to know more than they do (which is nothing} until they get a reaction, and then put all the pieces together.
** In ''Iorich'', the Empress thanks Vlad for his help in exposing a conspiracy in the East (detailed in the previous novel, ''Jhegaala''). Vlad asks her how she knew he was the one who sent those anonymous letters, and the Empress replies that she didn't, until now.

** Or if [[spoiler:he really had impersonated Phoenix in the first trial, and would therefore know the description of all the evidence gathered at that point. However, if he'd confessed to impersonating a defense attorney in a case for which he was a suspect, it's basically still confessing to the murder anyway.]]
*** Unlikely, as [[spoiler: the poison bottle was never entered into evidence in the ''second'' case because of concerns regarding it. It's even less likely it would have been entered into the first one, where the fake Phoenix was ''trying'' to lose.]]
* Used in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]. Heather, a small time thief, confronts Yeardley, a general working on Duke Ludveck's orders, about his attempts to get the townspeople of Crimea to revolt against Elincia.

* In ''Anime/SailorMoon R'', Esmeraude launches a plan to infect people with dark energy using a flu virus. Minako and Chibiusa go to the pharmacy to pick up medicine for the Tsukinos, and coincidentally encounter Esmeraude, who seizes the opportunity to try and kidnap Chibiusa while she's at it. Minako/Sailor Venus comes to the rescue, prompting the following exchange:
-> '''Esmeraude:''' I see! You somehow used your power to locate our Dark Henge site.
-> '''Sailor Venus:''' Sure did!
-> '''Esmeraude:''' Damn! So, to be clear, you're saying you knew about our plan to make the entire city sick by spreading medicine laced with dark power from this hospital base?
-> '''Sailor Venus:''' Yeah! It was so obvious!
-> '''Chibiusa:''' Wow, Venus will say anything based on the situation.

* In ''{{Daria}}'', a DreamSequence that parodies ''MurderSheWrote'' has Daria investigating the murder of Kevin, that she's been framed for. She says that she coated her locker (where the murder weapon was planted) with a clear paint that changes color over time, and the hands of whoever was in her locker would be turning pink any minute. Three suspects check their hands, then she says she made the whole thing up since only the guilty party would look.

* How Cake Girl in ''Webcomic.{{Gloomverse}}'' [[http://gloomverse.smackjeeves.com/comics/1804848/the-magic-show-part-2-page-5/ figures out the origin of Harold's partial-invisibility]].



* A Russian proverbial story tells about a guy who spots a pickpocket in the market. Nobody else sees it, though, so the quickwitted fellow points in the thief's general direction and shouts: "That ''thief's'' hat is on fire!" [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments The crook instinctively grabs his headgear...]]
* Very similarly, in a Serbian folk tale, St. Sava (the man that established the Serbian Orthodox Church) was asked to use his wisdom to find a thief in a crowd. He replied with "Oh, that's easy. It's the guy with the bee on his hat!" pointing out into the crowd's general direction. Of course, the guy waves his hand to chase off the (nonexistant) bee, and gets caught.

** Alternatively, an old trick amongst pickpockets working in groups is to have one person turn to a friend and (loudly) proclaim "Somebody stole my wallet!" The marks nearby instantly will pat their own wallets, broadcasting the location of their valuables.
