* In the Literature/FatherBrown story "The Vampire of the Village", TheVicar of a small English village turns out to be a criminal imposter. Father Brown quickly rumbles him because [[ChurchOfSaintGenericus he doesn't know much about Church of England doctrine]] and displays characteristics of several incompatible church factions at the same time.

* In ''The Counterfeit Traitor'', a woman is tricked into betraying herself by a Gestapo agent who pretends to be a priest taking confessions. This was based on true incidents and the woman in real life (as in the movie) was shot by a firing squad. The confessional incident might be in the movie only.
* In ''Film/FinalJustice'', the bad guy dresses up as a monk and hides in a church, but his cover doesn't last long after he tries to brush off a hysterical woman in the confession booth with "sure, sure, whatever you want." So the cop after him is able to spot him, leading to a painfully long chase scene with the hero pursuing the villain in a monk outfit through the streets of Malta, followed by a painfully long chase scene with the hero pursuing the villain in a monk outfit in boats.

* Flintheart Glomgold dressed up as a nun in Creator/DonRosa's ''The Last Lord of Eldorado''. [[RuleOfFunny Humorously]], despite ''having a beard'', he was only discovered when he got into a fight, because the real nuns learned better style than that [[AllMonksKnowKungFu in their judo classes]]. (Scrooge himself, being GenreSavvy, wasn't fooled for an instant, though.)

* Literature/EnolaHolmes Subverted because she's not ''bad'', per se, but Enola [[MasterOfDisguise disguises herself]] as a nun to wander the streets of London's worst neighborhoods at night, giving food and clothing to the poor, without fear of being caught by the police - or her brothers.

* ''Film/CharliesAngels: Full Throttle'' has the Angels disguised as nuns. And that's the sound of Theology flying out the window.
* At the end of the first ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movie, Jack Sparrow is [[LongList having his crimes announced]] just before he is about to be hanged. These include "impersonating [[TheVicar a cleric of the Church of England]]", provoking a smile of amused reminiscence from Jack.
