*** Once you pick up all of a Jinjo's color, the Minjos will still use that color. There's one Minjo in the last area, which doesn't have any Jinjos, by the way (this Minjo is guarding a switch that needs to be triggered to get to the third and final Klungo fight and the "Tower of Tragedy" quiz), and there's also one in a spaceship that will fly away and can no longer be accessed.

** Also, there is a character called Chester, who jumps out of chests, saying that he was first, and you have to buy the item instead of getting it free like in any other video game.

** ''Tooie'' also has the boss Mingy Jongo, the robotic [[BossSubtitles "Crafty Shaman Impersonator"]] who appears in one of the two skulls of the friendly shaman Mumbo Jumbo in the last major world (one of them's red, the other is blue, and their locations are randomized each game; both must be visited if one wants to obtain all the Jiggys since Mingy is a boss that has one of the world's Jiggys). Distinct from the original because he drops the genuine article's HulkSpeak. Must be seen to believed. Some methods you can tell the difference between the two include:

** ''Banjo-Tooie'' has fake Jinjos called Minjos that start appearing when you reach Witchyworld. They look exactly like the Jinjos, but they will try to attack you if you get near. To add to the confusion, they are often hidden in out-of-the-way places like the regular Jinjos. The way to tell them apart is A) you can shoot eggs such as freezing them, and if they do budge or get frozen, they're bullshit and are trying to lure you in (the eggs will pass through real Jinjos), B) Minjos will respawn in areas and can change color when you exit and reenter the room; the locations of the various Jinjo colors is randomized at the start of the game, but they won't change colors once you see them, C) Minjos will NEVER be in Jinjo spots that require a puzzle solved to obtain [[note]] You may find a Minjo in a hidden room in one of the corners or in the middle, but not in specific Jinjo spots such as behind a hot waterfall in a small cubby that requires a specific set of steps to reach (one example is in Grunty Industries; there's a Jinjo spot high in the tower that requires the climbing shoes and is behind a timed door; Jinjos in spots like that WILL be real)[[/note]], and D) Once you pick up all of a Jinjo's color, the Minjos will still use that color.

Mingy has retained this trait, but ''Mumbo hasn't.''(Mumbo IS asleep when you first see him in Mayahem Temple, but should otherwise be awake).]]

* ''[[VideoGame/Prey2017 Prey]]'''s [[TheGoomba most common enemy]], the Mimic (scientific name ''Typhon cacoplasmus''), is capable of transforming itself into a copy of a nearby item in order to ambush you when you get close. In addition to doing this dynamically, there are also a few notable scripted Mimic encounters:
** Your first encounter with [[StandardFPSGuns an actual gun]], the silenced pistol, is one you see lying next to a dead security guard on the other side of a door. The gun you can actually see, however, is a Mimic - the real one is out of sight behind the door frame.
** A Fabricator in the Psychotronics director's office has a useful item apparently jammed in it. It's a Mimic.
** In one of the larger Psychotronics labs, nearly every item has a note reading "Not a Mimic" on it. The rest, of course, are Mimics.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/MysticArk''. The Mimics are quite friendly [[spoiler: Despite being locked up in the basement of Kidsdom Mansion, even one of them will heal you if you talk to it.]]

* Inverted and played straight in ''VideoGame/MysticArk''. The Mimics are quite friendly [[spoiler: Despite being locked up in the basement of Kidsdom Mansion, even one of them will heal you if you talk to it.]]]] In the Giant's world there are Mimics but they don't disguise themselves, they are random enemies.

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries''. Justified somewhat by the fact that they give you All Divides, which are one of the games' most powerful items.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' features a variant of the Octorok that wears a fake chest on its head; the chest looks like all the other metals chests that can be yanked out of the ground using Magnesis, except the Octorok's chest is ''not'' magnetic. And wearing the Champion's Tunic will reveal the enemy's health meter.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has treasure coffers in Hullbreaker Isle that can transform into a Mimic which can do a lot of damage and inflict Poison on the party. You have no choice but the fight them since they drop stone tablets that are needed to open a door. Palace of the Dead also has Mimics that can randomly spawn when you try to open a coffer. They still hit hard, but they can also inflict Accursed Pox, which causes damage over time, reduces your strength, and disables your HP from regenerating naturally for ''10 minutes''. You can also get a minion version of the Mimic that is harmless and follows you around like other minions.

* The ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' trilogy, as you would expect, has Mimics hiding throughout the world. If you try to open a Mimic, it'll pull you inside its mouth and chew on you, most likely killing you in the process. An awakened Mimic is a powerful but slow enemy, and looks like the [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] with a chest on his head. There are a few ways to tell them apart: Mimics don't [[http://darksouls.wdfiles.com/local--files/enemies/mimic-fake-chest-large.jpg quite get the look right]], they occasionally have to open slightly to take a breath, and if they take damage in any way, they'll abandon the disguise and attack. This can be dangerous though: in later games, attacking a chest can destroy whatever's inside. Hitting the chest with a Lloyd's Talisman/Undead Hunter Cham will also put a Mimic to sleep, allowing you to reach in and take its treasure without it noticing.
