* This is also how some stories people do not see Clark Kent is ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'', especially Lex Luthor. Not only because Kent is too clumsy and mild mannered, but because they believe there's no way Superman, a PhysicalGod with pretty much every superpwoer in known to man, would ever choose to live as someone so mundane. [[ClarkKenting The glasses are really just a prop.]]

* In ''Film/IRememberMama'', Mama wants to see her 8-year old daughter Dagmar but hospital policy won't allow it then. So Mama comes in during a different shift where no one will recognize her, goes to the mop closet, gets a bucket of water and a brush, bends down on hands and knees, and simply scrubs her way down the hall to the ward where Dagmar is staying, while the nurses who see a bent-over woman scrubbing presume she's the charwoman.

** Demonstrated by a modern practitioner (an American) on a documentary on the subject. He was supposed to get close to another man and snatch the cap off his head (indicating he'd succeeded in getting close enough to assassinate him), the target being in a room with guards and monitoring equipment. In order to do so he dressed as a member of the TV crew and puttered around, "fixing" cameras and microphones, and generally being ignored because the guards were aware everything was being filmed for a TV show, even though no one was supposed to have access. After a few hours, he talked himself into the room; the guards and target were oblivious until he lunged for the cap.

* ''Film/TheTerminal'': Gupta fled India after he stabbed a cop who kept extorting him, and chooses to work as a janitor. As he puts it, "As long as I keep my head down, and my floor clean, they have no reason to deport me, they have no reason to notice a man like me." Losing his job is a major BerserkButton for him.

* In the 1980s Franchise/JamesBond RPG, it's [[PointBuildSystem more expensive]] to build an average-looking character than a good-looking one, partly for game balance (blending into the crowd is [[InvokedTrope a very useful tactic for a spy]]) and partly to encourage players to go along with the larger-than-life genre.

* Sidereal ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' occasionally [[MasterofDisguise cast themselves]] as forgettable extras, such as a town drunk or local guardsman, and even gain massive bonuses for doing so. [[AncientConspiracy And yet it is through these disguises]] that they essentially [[TheManBehindtheMan rule Creation from behind the scenes]].

* Lampshaded in ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', when Pilar outlines why she and Monsterrat are the best choices to aid imprisoned Melodía.
-->"And that's the thing: you know how people overlook children and servants?"\\
Montse nodded. It was like asking if she knew what ''breathing'' was.
