* The whole damn point of [[spoiler:Eine, AKA Katarina's]] subplot (Which is the entire Gaiden chapter linup) in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem]]''. She was forced by her sister to [[spoiler:Disguise herself as a new recruit in the Altean Army and assassinate Marth.]] The party is dumbfounded by the revelation, but [[spoiler:Eine]] seems to genuinely mourn her actions. At the end of the subplot, she leaves her true identity behind to become her alias, serving Marth tirelessly to atone for her actions.

** Nami as well. She had only intended to use Luffy for all he was worth before leaving. But the longer she stayed with them, the more she grew to like being part of the Straw Hats (especially compared to her experiences with Arlong). Eventually, she betrayed them and cheerfully took off with Going Merry, but once she was on her own, she broke down and cried. When the Straw Hats eventually follow her, she is visibly upset while trying to keep them out of a fight she thought they couldn't win. Like with Robin earlier, Luffy continues to think of Nami as part of his crew and confronts Arlong for her sake. The final nail in this was when Luffy told Nami to watch [[NiceHat his signature straw hat]], simultaneously a sign of his trust in her and a sign he was [[LetsGetDangerous about to kick some serious butt]]. By this time she is too shaken with emotion to even move, ultimately coming to the realization she ''wants'' to be a Straw Hat, leading to her ultimate decision to leave with them after Luffy defeats Arlong.

*** Note that she still tried to deny, right up to the breaking point. The Straw Hats were already in the middle of The Government's stronghold (Luffy himself had personally wrecked over 1000 rank and file soldiers, RoaringRampageOfRevenge style. But then, he's Luffy. He's either in IdiotHero mode or Roaring Rampage of Insert Emotion Here). So Robin STILL tries to talk them out of it. Luffy insists that they're going to rescue her anyway, and then she can leave the Straw Hat Pirates if she wants. And then, just to prove he's dead serious and that Robin's enemy is his as well, he has Sogeking burn the World Government flag, ''essentially declaring war on the world!'' And then... TearJerker ensues. Robin's tears, specifically, in a moment of NotSoStoic. Also, Pirate on Elite Assassin Team action.

Added DiffLines:

* Invoked as part of the Jedi's master plan in the first KnightsOfTheOldRepublic: upon capturing [[spoiler: Darth Revan, conqueror of almost half of the known galaxy]] they force him into a 'mask' of sorts and send him off to do good deeds for the republic as [[spoiler: the player character]] in hopes that the the character he's been made to play will become his true face. Depending on how the game proceeds this either goes very well or goes [[GoneHorriblyRight much, much too well]], since the mask can end up becoming [[spoiler: a much more vicious and effective sith lord than the original Revan ever was]].

** In ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' [[spoiler:Sergeant Jackrum. Not only has she been in disguise long enough to make a detailed account of most of the other females hiding in the ranks of the army, she also has evaded her service papers discharging her from the army for years. As the war ends, she admits to Polly that she doesn't want to return home to just be an old biddy. Polly suggests that she keep the mask and return home as a respected retired sergeant instead.]]

TheMole or the ConMan takes on a fake identity in order to gain something: information, money, a safe place. As time progresses, he grows to love his new identity and the way people treat him. His new friends prove reliable and he is struck by the contrast. He might even fall in love with another person whom he is explicitly supposed to be taking advantage of. Either way, he wants to remain in his new identity forever.
