* ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. Played for drama and laughs in "Coup by Clam", where John Crichton and [[FanDisservice Rigel]] dress as women in order to infiltrate a brothel. Crichton gets hit on by a government thug who, in an interesting subversion, [[HoYay already knows that he's a man dressed as a woman]] as he'd seen Crichton earlier.

"Different Destinations" had it go horribly wrong when Crichton tried to smuggle the captured General of an army out of the defender's camp (so he could negotiate a ceasefire) but get caught and the general dies before getting there; his army then finds the body dressed like one of the enemy's women and conclude it was a deliberate insult, scuttling any chance for peace.

** Played with much later: [[spoiler: [[MuggedForDisguise Kaitou knocks out and strips Sera]] to disguise himself as her, leaving her BoundAndGagged in her undies... but Sera is such a {{Bifauxnen}} and [[{{Pettanko}} so flatchested]] that ''he doesn't notice it's a girl''. (To be fair she ''is'' wearing boyish underwear and an undershirt at that moment. Sera was also caught in the men's washroom because the women's washroom was full.) Conan later explains everything, Kaitou is all "WTF?!" when told Sera's a girl... and cue to [[DynamicEntry a very pissed off Sera in her undies drop-kicking him in the head]].]]

** Invoked again in an episode of WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow where Bugs disguises himself as "Viola Bunny" his "sister" moving to Albania, all as a ploy to avoid going to a peach festival with Porky. Later subverted when he's detained at the Albanian airport for not having a matching passport.

* An episode of ''Series/ForensicFiles'' had detectives confused about the timeline of a victim's murder--her body was found in her backyard, but multiple witnesses swore that they saw her leaving for work. They eventually learned that her killer had planned the crime so far in advance that after killing her, he dressed in her clothes and donned a wig, thus enabling him to avoid detection and dupe her neighbors into thinking that they'd seen her.
