* Gordon Frohman does this a few times in ''WebComic/{{Concerned}}'', though it's up for debate whether it's really dressing as the ''enemy'' considering [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter he absolutely loves the Combine]], but [[MinionWithAnFInEvil is so bad at helping them he may as well have been with the Resistance the whole time]].
** The first time is for part of "Bike Lane 17", where he meets up with another group of Combine who take him to the bridge outpost. He ends up giving away that he's not a real Combine when he's unable to pass through the force fields on the bridge[[note]]there was another minor instance where he gave it away during a trip in an APC, but [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading then they hit a load screen]] and forgot all about it[[/note]], and in the process of dumping the outfit, accidentally gets it stuck in the rotors of a gunship, which promptly crashes into the bridge and destroys everything.
** The second time is during the uprising after Gordon Freeman has returned, where Frohman's gotten tired of being shot at by the Combine, and decides the best way to avoid this is to dress as one of them. Of course, [[FriendOrFoe this just leads to the other rebels shooting him]] until he gives up and dresses as a medic, figuring that the rebels will appreciate his healing skills and the Combine won't shoot him in accordance with Subsection B of the resolutions of the Geneva International Conference. Of October. 1863. Neither part works out how he hopes, though, as [[ShootTheMedicFirst another Combine blasts in with a shotgun]] the instant he finishes his monologue, and [[DeadlyDoctor his insistence on performing surgery]] over just giving people medkits just gets even more Rebels killed.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSaboteur'', Sean is able to knock out a Nazi soldier and take their jacket. However he must only stealth kill to get the outfit as the blood would immediately give him away. Also it is noted in the How To part of the game that Sean reeks so much of booze and smokes that if he was to get to close to the Nazis for too long they will be able to spot him out. That, and he only ever takes the jacket and headgear, and leaves the pants and boots alone. While it's justified for a few reasons (There's usually too much risk to spend time putting on the full uniform and, in any case, the guy's likely soiled himself as he goes down - [[{{Squick}} Not pretty]].) it does result in him being out of uniform from the waist down. Also, for whatever reason, Sean also refuses to wear the armband as well.

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'':
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' features an enemy uniform that can be worn by Raiden. It averts the Universal Uniform trope, if only in the mildest way: the uniform is (allegedly) too big for Raiden, and if an actual guard touches him, it instantly falls off, mandating a tactical withdrawal.

** In ''MGS 3'', Snake is required to dress in scientist garb twice, once to infiltrate a warehouse for a rescue mission and the other to infiltrate a military base... for a rescue mission for the ''same person''. If one of the actual scientists sees you, they will stare at you for a while before sounding the alarm since they don't recognise you. Hence, turn away so the scientists can't see your face. It's anyone's guess how this works in the first place, since Snake doesn't look Russian at all, he's far from clean-shaven, and this works as normal while ''missing an eye'' (which, of course, isn't reflected on the ID badge).

** Meryl dresses as one of the guards in the first MGS.''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''. It works pretty well, considering that she even gets spotted at some point but is able to evade the guards just as well as the player could. It also means that the player has to keep an eye on the hip movements of the soldiers in that area while they're walking to find out which one is Meryl, because she has a distinctive way of walking.



* In the ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'' games, .47 will have to do this ''a lot'' to get close to his targets. Each available disguise has both advantages and disadvantages. For instance, if your target is some millionaire, dressing as a servant might get you close to him, but limit what you can carry or where you can go; dress as a guard, and you won't be stopped for having a weapon, but you might not be able to get close enough.



* Some missions in ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' games require dressing up as a German officer and displaying credentials to gain access to valuable targets like a submarine or rail gun. Someone always eventually sees through your disguise.
* Kinda parodied in ''Medal of Honor: Rising Sun'' where you have to steal one officer's uniform, and upon showing the pass for the officer on railroad station's door, looks at you for a moment and says: "Damn, that just must be other photo of you!" and opens the door for you.

** In ''[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Call Of Duty 4]]'', your squad briefly takes the uniforms of enemy soldiers to ambush a convoy. Griggs comments that "you look like a clown in that outfit."
** A major controversy erupted over a level in ''4'''s sequel, in which the player goes undercover as a terrorist, infiltrates the villain's group, and then helps (optionally, the player can choose not to) open fire on dozens of innocent civilians at a Russian airport. However, the villain appears to be too GenreSavvy, [[spoiler:abruptly killing the undercover player at the end of the mission, framing the US for the attack and prompting a Russian invasion of Washington DC.

** ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 Black Ops II]]'' follows suit in a fashion, where one level starts off with you taking control of a deep-cover agent within Cordis Die, shooting at Yemeni soldiers and being assisted by the same mercenaries you've been shooting for most of the rest of the game, until the halfway point where you switch perspective back to the usual protagonist. The finale also has Menendez attempt this, stealing a SEAL's uniform to try and escape, though he's discovered almost immediately when one of the [=SEALs=] with you notices a friendly body (which turns out to be booby-trapped) stripped of his uniform.

* In 1984, when Jesse Jackson was running for a spot on the Democratic ticket, he met with several farmers who he saw as potential supporters. The farmers all showed up dressed like the Ku Klux Klan, just so they could meet in peace (keep in mind that at the time many whites weren't yet prepared to support a black Presidential candidate).

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' contains a ring that allows a hostile Invader to assume the appearance of a friendly phantom. Inattentive hosts will let their guard down... and then get stabbed in the back (probably literally).

* Done in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' by Celia when she has to smuggle Belkar and Haley ([[spoiler: as well as Roy's corpse]]) out of Azure City. She disguises herself as a necromancer, calls Mr. Scruffy her evil cat familiar, and uses eyeliner to draw Xs over Belkar and Haley's eyes so that they look dead. She's almost found out when one of the guards calls her out on not being a necromancer, at which point Belkar "rises from the dead", kills the guard, and asks if anyone else wants to question his creature type. Surprisingly, it works.
** ''Far'' more common is the enemy disguising themselves as a hero. Sabine, being a shapeshifter, frequently disguises herself as guards or policemen. Nale spends a good part of ''War and XPs'' disguised as Elan (made easy given that they're identical twins), with Elan in jail on Nale's behalf. Zz'dtri disguises themselves as one of Tarquin's aides during the Order's time in the Empire of Blood (so that they can reveal themselves along with the rest of the Linear Guild). Lastly, in a bizarre case of Enemy Dressing as the Enemy, Tarquin disguises himself as Thog because he considers Thog to be too much of a loose cannon, but they can't let on that it's really Tarquin fighting them.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Link can obtain Bokoblin, Moblin, and Lizalfos Masks that allow him to move among those enemies without being attacked, since they will see Link as one of their own. It only works on one type at a time though: a Moblin will not be fooled by a Lizalfos Mask, etc. There is even a Lynel Mask, but the [[DemonicSpiders Lynels]] will see through the disguise given a minute or two and attack anyway.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' featured an enemy uniform that could be worn by Raiden. Konami deceptively hid his presence in the game by only showing him dressed in this disguise for the game's promotional materials, which may have had something to do with the [[TheScrappy incredible backlash]] against the character when he was revealed to be the main protagonist. It also averts the Universal Uniform trope, if only in the mildest way: the uniform is (allegedly) too big for Raiden, and if an actual guard touches him, it instantly falls off, mandating a tactical withdrawal.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', in turn, requires you to knock out a GRU officer and steal his uniform. The officer in question looks suspiciously like Raiden.
*** When playing in most of the uniforms, you can't do anything too weird (rolling around, beating up guards, etc.) or you'll be caught. As the GRU officer, you're explicitly allowed to do anything you want, because "Raikov's just like that". It's probably because no-one wants to tick off [[spoiler:the villain's boyfriend]].

Rebels, while seeing you in standard uniform, will warily move around you, even attacking you if you got too close. You had to build relationship with them by giving them items and attacking PMC troops. However, wearing their uniform will instantly give you their trust, which makes your life easier.
