** Likewise, at one point, Adam the young Anti-Christ is sent a massive Hellhound which takes the form of small yapping dog as a disguise. It grows to enjoy its new form and carefree life of catching sticks more than it ever enjoyed chewing up the souls of the damned and such. The presence of female dogs probably didn't hurt much.
*** Yes and no with the hellhound. While the dog definitely DID prefer Earth to hell in the end, the reason he took the smaller form wasn't as a disguise but because whatever the Antichrist named him, would define him and Adam chose the name 'Dog'. So he became the perfect embodiment of a dog, changing him from the very start.

* While everybody in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'' is trying to stay in-character, several of them do so with more...commitment than others. Creator/AllisonPregler claims that she should be useless in battle because of [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs her character choice]], PawDugan tries to [[Film/DungeonsAndDragons gather rage]] from everybody (including the trees), and WebVideo/{{Phelous}} seems to have gone right off the deep end. MarzGurl also seems to be joining the throng, what with speaking only in Japanese, scenting the air and biting the Critic on various portions of his anatomy.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Dalinar Kholin did this on purpose, with the [[CodeOfHonor Alethi Codes of War]]. As the Blackthorn, he was little better than a bloody cudgel in his brother's hand; with Gavilar's death, Dalinar realized he needed to be something else. He followed the Codes for long enough that it became as natural as breathing. Kaladin gets close to this truth when he wonders if his gesture at the end of the first book is just him pretending to be honorable. He decides that if you're willing to [[spoiler:''give up a [[ArtifactOfAttraction Shardblade]]'']] to "pretend" to be honorable, you're not really pretending any more.

* Cinder Fall in ''TheRWBYLoops'' zigzags this trope something fierce. Because of the way the time loops works, she decides to fake a friendly looping identity with which to socialize with the good guys whilst simultaneously indulging her villainous side in secret. The two identities both manage to grow stronger and cause more internal conflict [[spoiler:to the point where, with a little assistance from an outside force, they become [[SplitPersonality independent and unaware of each other.]] This does not end well.]]
