* IN ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperman'', crooks found a doppleganger for Superman, who they used to smear his name by robbing people dressed in the suit. The only difference is that when the crook spoke, his normal accent was a Brooklyn "deese, do'se, and d'ems," like the gangster he was, instead of Superman's perfect mid-Western American accent.

* One American man saw a televised report of a dangerous criminal who just happened to look a lot like himself. [[GenreSavvy Wanting to avoid this trope]], he went to the police himself to explain that he was ''not'' the criminal at large. After confirming his identity, the police thanked him for clearing any potential confusion... then ran a background check on him on a whim, to find that [[StupidCrooks he was wanted for other, unrelated crimes, and arrested him anyway]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/MiretteInvestigates'', there is an episode about two lookalikes of Mirette, one of them being the BigBad (with his dog!) under an exact disguise who robs stores and bullies people including children. The real Mirette encounters her evil doppelgänger in the Louvre and changed the latter's hairstyle; shortly after, the villain throws the Mona Lisa painting (saved by the other Mirettes), runs away and emerges with the dog from the disguise prior to their escape.

* An episode of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' had Josh be repeatedly mistaken for a wanted criminal after playing one in a dramatization on TV, whose name was the "Theater Thug". This results in him getting beaten up and arrested repeatedly, to the point where he's in the same theater AS THE ACTUAL THEATER THUG and is beaten up and arrested while the real guy makes off with the theater's money. To make it even more of a MiscarriageOfJustice, he was being ''attacked'' by the Theater Thug before [[PoliceAreUseless the police come over and arrest him!]]
