** Since Batman didn't want Tim Drake revealing his identity even to other heroes, he sometimes told them that his name was "Alvin Draper." Amusingly, his best friend Comicbook/{{Superboy}} immediately dismissed it, on the grounds that [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude no one with that name would willingly go by it]]; he'd have introduced himself as "Al" or "Vinnie" instead.

* In the ''Company Z'' novels by JTEdson, Alvin Fog uses 'Rapido Clint' as his alias whenever he poses as a criminal. His partner Mark Scrapton would use 'Commanche Blood'. These two verge of being full-blown 'go-to identities'.

* Classic ''{{Traveller}}'', ''The Journal of the Traveller's Aid Society'' #16. Jon "Fast Johnny" [=McRae=] is a highly skilled and daring interstellar con artist. One of his favorite aliases is Commodore Laruskaa Korkoran of the Imperial Navy. He has gone to great effort to make it a solid identity that can't be easily exposed.

* The ''{{Suikoden}}'' series has the recurring alias of Scholtheim Reinbach III/IV. Made much funnier when one of the games actually features the real Scholtheim Reinback III.
* In ''PlanescapeTorment'', The Nameless One has the option of using the moniker Adahn when talking to people. And thanks to [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve the nature of the Planes]], if you convince enough people that there's a guy named Adahn wandering around out there, [[RealityIsOutToLunch you can meet him in a bar]].

* Literature/TheStainlessSteelRat, in his criminal days, had a constructed identity complete with false fingerprints, pads that changed the shape of his face, and so on, which he would adopt before beginning any con (and [[MultilayerFacade keep up underneath any other alias required for the con]]), so that the police would spend their time looking for that person instead of the real him.
* By the time Literature/TheBelgariad starts, Silk has already established the personae "Ambar of Kotu" and "Radek of Boktor". It's indicated that those are his two favorite go-to identities, though he has others.

* On ''WhiteCollar'', Neal Caffrey uses Nick Halden as a regular alias when playing cons. Probably because he knows the FBI already knows about that identity; he's had others, but he'd prefer not to give up all his secrets.
