* A variation in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' book ''Literature/DeathMasks'', where Harry appears on a talk-show talking about the supernatural. The guests are himself (A wizard), an "ectomancer" (Psychic who can communicate with the dead), a Roman Catholic priest from the Vatican talking about faith v. the supernatural, and a university professor who specializes in debunking claims of the supernatural. Harry only agreed to the show so that he could speak to the ectomancer, as the man would not otherwise meet with him for fear of being caught in the crossfire in the ongoing supernatural war. Harry soon discovers that the other two guests ''also'' appeared on the show in order to have inconspicuous meetings with him on business that is completely unrelated to the other people there. [[spoiler:Not only did they want to talk with him, but they were each also a different type of supernatural being. It is ultimately revealed that every single person on the "Is the supernatural real?" panel had a power or was a supernatural creature of some kind.]]

* A sub-series of Italian stories in the ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse has Goofy writing stories in various genres. Using himself as a protagonist and Mickey Mouse as his sidekick. The stories mostly make fun of various genres and their tropes. One of "his" stories from 2003 has the duo as undercover cops posing as prisoners. Their mission being to befriend a certain prisoner and learn his secrets. They soon find out that their superiors went a bit overboard with their planning. With the exception of the secretive prisoner, the prison population consists entirely of undercover cops.

** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DH6TBdN-lJc I, Despot]]'' is a one-man example, where an undercover journalist infiltrates a bloodthirsty reign of terror in {{Qurac}} ''as the dictator himself''.
