* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has a whole category for people with these powers called Strangers. One particularly terrifying example is Nice Guy: whose power makes everyone think that he's a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin nice]], [[TheNondescript if rather boring]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin guy]] who obviously isn't doing anything wrong. Even when he's in the middle of disemboweling someone.

* ''TheLaundrySeries'' has a glamour as a spell any mildly-skilled sorcerer can cast. They're ranked on a scale of one to five, with one being "cover up minor imperfections," three being "make a humanoid entity look perfectly human," and five being "instill outright worship." At one point, Bob buys an [=iPhone=] and silently curses to himself that someone at Apple must be casting class five glamours over them.
* In Tom Holt's J.W. Wells books, there is an entire department in J.W. Wells and Co. devoted to glamour. It is run by the [[TheFairFolk The Fey]] and their biggest, highest-paying clients are celebrities and politicians who are looking for more publicity. The Fey and their part-human descendants are particularly good at "effective magic" which affects the viewer's mind and perceptions, while other types of magical beings prefer "practical magic", which changes the physical structure of things.

Added DiffLines:

* A number of ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fics justify the series' use of ClarkKenting by suggesting that there's a glamour preventing people from recognising Miraculous holders under their masks or otherwise identifying them from circumstantial evidence. One example is ''Fanfic/PowersOfInvisibility'', which eventually reveals that [[spoiler:Juleka is immune to the glamour due to the same senses that make her ideal for the Turtle Miraculous]].
