* {{Series/Frisky Dingo}}: Stan and Simon insist on wearing Nun outfits for a ZanyScheme just so they could call it "[[OverlyPreparedGag operation bad habit]]". Killface is not amused.

* 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.

* ''Series/Father Ted''. Craggy Island can be viewed as a leper colony for the Irish Catholic Church's bad bargains. Father Ted Crilly is posted there for theft and embezzlement. Father Dougal because of the incident with the nuns at Blackrock. And Father Jack for being... Father Jack. Periodically other priests with personality issues join them. And their bullying, lecherous, supervisor, Bishop Brennan, is not much holier either.

* Donald J. Sobol (best known as the creator of ''EncyclopediaBrown'') wrote a ''[[Literature/TwoMinuteMysteries short story]] that ended up featuring one of these as the solution. A detective is in a small cafe drinking coffee when a bank robbery occurs, and three people--a fireman, a limo driver, and a nun--come running in to escape the havoc. They all order different drinks, with the nun asking for a cup of coffee; after the hubbub ends, the three leave the cafe. The detective asks for a second cup of coffee, prompting the waiter to give him "the mug without a lipstick stain." The gumshoe quickly determines that nuns aren't allowed to wear lipstick, and realizes that the "nun" was actually an accomplice to the robbery.
