** ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'' likewise does it with the antagonist Blood Stalk, since his identity is a mystery even to his own ([[DragonWithAnAgenda supposed]]) allies and is a major point of speculation for the first quarter of the series. It's even acknowledged in-universe that he uses a voice changer to hide his identity; [[spoiler:since Build interacts with him on a daily basis in their civilian identities]], it's perfectly understandable.

** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'': The MonsterOfTheWeek (a vampire) is believed to be Daphne's mom. She even has the same VA, Creator/KathSoucie. From the same series, the Crybaby Clown, voiced by Creator/MarkHamill, is really [[spoiler: Baylor Hotner voiced by Matt Lanter.]] More than any previous series, ''Mystery Incorporated'' usually casts different actors as the disguised villains, as the series is more arc-based than previous ones and some identities ''need'' to be hidden to keep up the suspense. One exception is when the villains, both in and out of disguise, have the ''incredibly'' distinct voices of James Hong and Creator/GeorgeTakei.

** A prime example comes in ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'', where both [[MysteriousBenefactor the White Wizard]] and [[BigBad Wiseman]] were played by voice actors (the latter by Creator/ToshioFurukawa) for most of the series in order to hide their true identities. After their respective [[TheReveal reveals]], the actors who played their civilian identities took over the roles. [[spoiler:Or rather "actor", singular, since they're both identities used by Sou Fueki.]] Plus, given the series, AWizardDidIt could be seen as a perfectly valid explanation for the change.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', set in the same universe as ''The Flash'', uses the same dubbing trick in Season Five, casting Creator/MichaelDorn to provide the voice of Prometheus, who is actually [[spoiler: apparent ally Adrian Chase, birth name Simon Morrison, played by Josh Segarra]].
