* ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'': Bond impersonates a murdered Russian scientist in order to get close to Renard's nuclear operation. Not even Dr. Jones is fooled by the ruse. Not by his accent or anything though; after conversing in English she adresses him in Russian to test him, but Bond aces it. The scientist in question is too old for Bond to convincingly pass off as.

* Clay from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' is a Japanese man who got rich in America by finding oil, and apparently moved to Unova. Due to the art style and his persona, he comes off as an American born Southerner. He may, or may not, be playing the part of a Southerner; or possibly he became one when he moved.

* In the operetta ''Die Fledermaus'', several of the characters attend Prince Orlovsky's ball incognito as foreign noblemen and -women. Lindy Hume's English-language adaptation, first produced by Opera Australia in the 1990s, goes one better by revealing at the very end that Orlovsky himself is not really a foreign nobleman either.
