* 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]]

* Discussed in ''[[ASeriesofUnfortunateEvents Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography]]''.

* 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
