* Subverted in ''Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada'' and it's ''{{Robotech}}: New Generation'' counterpart. Yellow, Ray and Mint are in Carnegie Hall hiding from an Inbit sentry when a cat runs by and stops the sentry believing the noise it heard was just a cat. Turns out the cat was actually a performance by a boy named George who appeared to help the heroes.

* Inverted in ''SnakesOnAPlane'', where the cat benefits the villains: the luggage inspection dogs detect the snakes, but the handlers think they're just barking at a hissing cat and move on. [[FridgeBrilliance Come to think of it,]] the bad guys may have planted that cat there for that purpose.

* Meowth plays this role in a Unova episode of ''Anime/{{Pokémon}}'', oddly by pretending he's not a cat, but a rare Umbreon. The trainers chasing him are disappointed when they discover he's not a rare pokemon, merely a ''talking Meowth''.

* The first episode of ''InnocentVenus'' has a cat serving as decoy. The hero was actually wearing an infrared invisibility cloak, making him immune to the enemy's heat detection camera.
