A reality badge is a badge used by police officers when investigating in a Snapshot. These badges instantly convince dupes that they are fake, allowing the investigating officers to go about their business. To anyone real, it just looks like a normal badge.[1]


Reality badges work by showing a dupe their entire life in a single instant. This instantly convinces them that they are fake.[2] Reactions to being shown the reality badge vary based on the individual and can range from breaking down crying to becoming a homicidal maniac.[3]
