* Victor Suvorov, a former Soviet GRU agent, says that among the first rules they were taught was - no sunshades, no raised collars, no hands in the pockets. After all, why should they look like spies if they are not spies but Soviet Intelligence Agents?

** Magnesite the alien/youma, a fanfiction creation of one of Beryl's generals from the first Sailor Moon season, becomes so enamored of HumphreyBogart movies that when he is imprisoned he keeps reviewing them in his mind to avoid [[FateWorseThanDeath death by boredom]]. The result several hundred years later is a person who uncontrollably acts like the Bogey, spending his (unlife) trying to bring private detective work and noir to sparkling-white Crystal Tokyo. His trenchcoat is his trademark, something all the Senshi know.

* In the children's mystery "Who's Got Gertie? And How Can We Get Her Back?", two twelve-year-old "detectives" are following a suspect, but as she already knows who one of them is, they need a disguise. A trench coat, sunglasses and an ugly hat are pressed into service, although since it's July, the trench coat was not the best choice.

* The CartoonNetwork music video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofvXa_TWrc8 "Always On the Run"]] began with a group of animated shadowy figures in trenchcoats and fedoras attempting to sneak out of the [[RogerRabbitEffect live-action]] Cartoon Network building. The fangirls spot one of them having a familiar red butt sticking out of the bottom of his coat and begin screaming, for it's actually [[WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel I.R. Baboon]] in the disguise, and the 'toons (also including WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo, [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Double-D]] and [[WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog Eustace]]) ditch their disguises and run as the chase begins

* The WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon "Baby Buggy Bunny" begins with a tall dark stranger dressed this way robbing the Last National Bank. We then learn that it's actually the midget gangster Ant Hill Harry (a.k.a. Baby-Face Finster), disguised on stilts with boots, a long trenchcoat, fedora hat and a black eye mask to hide his face. He swiftly changes from this disguise to a baby in a buggy, which manages to fool the police due to his small stature and baby-like face.
** The bank robbery scene was recycled in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' TV special "The Bugs Bunny Mystery Special," but instead of really being Baby-Face Finster, in the end it's revealed to be [[spoiler:WesternAnimation/PorkyPig, the Hitchcock-esque host of the special, in the same disguise, as he needed to "get the story going."]]



* 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.
