* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Pinkie Pie combines this disguise with a pair of groucho glasses and [[ItMakesSenseInContext a bale of hay]] to disguise herself in ''Party Of One''. It fails to make her inconspicuous ''or'' hide her identity at all because [[WeirdnessCoupon she is]] [[CloudCuckooLander Pinkie Pie]].

** In "The Times, They Are A-Changeling", Spike wears a trenchcoat, a hat, and dark sunglasses to avoid getting swamped by fans when he visits the Crystal Empire. When Twilight points out that it isn't a very good disguise, Spike adds a bright red afro wig to the ensemble. And the disguise actually works! Initially, the streets are deserted, so Spike decides he doesn't need the disguise anymore--and as soon as he takes it off, his fans appear out of nowhere to swarm around him.



* In the original ''WesternAnimation//TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' cartoon, the Turtles originally used trenchcoats and human masks as disguises when they went above ground, but as the series went on they began being treated more like standard superheroes and walked around openly.

* Heroic example in the first chapter of ''MuhyoAndRoji'', Roji (who also thinks [[MobileShrubbery mobile pottery]] is an effective stealth tactic) wears a trenchcoat and he and Muhyo wear sunglasses while staking out a client in order to locate the ghost of one of her dead friends. Muhyo notices that they "stick out like sore thumbs."

** Ferrite, also a fanfiction creation, is a cursed human from the Silver Millennium who keeps being reincarnated throughout history until he finally meets up with the Sailors in ''Anime/SailorMoon.'' His former Guardian powers change into a trenchcoat with infinite pockets, the ability to throw yellow roses from the trenchcoat similar to Tuxedo Mask, and he uses an ancient blunderbuss that can kill with one shot. Ferrite's alter ego calls himself Trenchcoat Mask in the modern day.

* Even ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' used this trope once, in Marvel's licensed series. To evade pursuers, the [[BrattyHalfPint Kenny]] of this series dresses the temporarily-shrunken Godzilla in a hat and trenchcoat. Admittedly, it only works for about two minutes, at night, but it was enough to fool two criminals, who attempt to mug Godzilla (yeah, that goes about as well as you'd expect.)[[note]]''Godzilla, King of the Monsters'' #19 (1978)[[/note]]
