** Moist von Lipwig in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' evidently studied at the same college as Jim diGriz. [[note]]there are many, many, suspicious similarities between the two characters. Commentators have remarked that now they're married, all the ''slippery'' Moist and the rather ''spiky'' Adorah Belle need to round things off are twin sons.[[/note]]. Moist uses specatcles, unruly wigs, very obvious false moustaches, and nose-hair wigs to horrify his marks - so that all they can talk about afterwards when the Watch wants a description is all the ''hair'' coming out of his nose and ears...

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': One episode had Mr. Cat, in an effort to escape from Kaeloo, put on a very convincing disguise as Pretty and told her that he went the other way. [[DelayedReaction After he leaves]], Kaeloo realizes that it was him because of his voice.

* {{Exaggerated}} in ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey''. Why are the soldiers staring at an attractive woman in a swimsuit when they're supposed to be getting a demonstration in camouflage from Sgt. Snorkel? Because they ''are'' -- that ''is'' Sarge. No wonder they're staring. Note that we're talking about a rough man about three times the volume of such a slim woman.

* ''TheInvisibleMan'' has Griffon wearing dark glasses and heavy clothes for the first several chapters, concealing his ''lack'' of an appearance. May also be a StealthPun on the title, since a few characters get confused when he tells them he's "invisible."

Any superhero or villain with a full-face mask would be included here, (Harley Quinn's make-up counts -- how many people would recognize her without it and her trademark clothing and hairstyle?) but superheros with no mask (Franchise/{{Superman}}) or partial masks(Franchise/{{Batman}}, Robin, Green Arrow) would not.

* In ''CodeGeass'', Zero's outfit completely obscures his physical features; among many other things, one consequence of this is that everyone thinks he's Japanese. This also allows C.C. to take over his identity when he's out of action for a year. Among other times.
* The MysteriousProtector in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs''. What originally appeared to be a man hiding behind [[MaskPower a simple face mask]] [[DramaticUnmask turned out to be]] [[spoiler:a full body illusion disguising [[TreacherousAdvisor Gil Graham]]'s CatGirl {{familiar}}s]].

* ''{{Kinnikuman}}'' and it's sequel ''KinnikumanNisei'' often use this; Some villains don simple disguises that cover up everything, even spikes and horns (Monsieur Cheeks, a literal Butt-head, is first seen in a Kid Muscle disguise that completely obscures his unusually-shaped cranium).
