* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* A complex variant in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'': Doctor Manhattan can "remember" events happening in his future. It's immensely confusing for others to be told by him that "we will go to X, and there you will tell me about Y", and later, when the other casually mentions Y, Manhattan is startled, because they've just reached the point in time when he learns about this. You Just Told Me indeed.

* In Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': When [[spoiler:Kaworu]] shows up, he gives away [[HumanoidAbomination his true nature]] to Shinji by [[spoiler:referring to humanity as "Lilim".]]

* In IronManArmoredAdventures, Pepper has a hunch that Tony Stark is Iron Man, so she confronts him about it and he casually asks how she figured it out. You just told me. Though in his defense she did give him some good reasons that he believed she already knew, she was practically just confirming it by this point.

* ''{{Doug}}'': A [[JerkAss douchebag]] student named Willy claims his teacher is incompetent and tries to get her fired. In front of an assembly, Doug asks Willy questions about classic novels, [[ObfuscatingStupidity mangling the details along the way]]. Willy smugly corrects Doug at every turn...but Doug points out that he and Willy learned all of that stuff in the teacher's class, so she has to be decent at her job. Willy has no choice but to drop his suit.

** Subverted in the original script, in which Kimble does ''not'' look up when Gerard calls to him, even though other people in the stairway do. He does, however, freeze in place for a moment (no doubt stopping himself from [[ReflexiveResponse reacting]] to the sound of his name), before continuing down the stairs at a visibly faster pace than before. The deliberate lack of response tips Gerard off just the same.
