* In ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' there's the A.I. called Two, who himself is a ProjectedMan. Being able to choose his own appearance, he has at more than one occasion done impersonations in order to deceive others. One of those times he pretended to be his own artificial holographic twin.

* ''Film/TotalRecall2012'' has one used to disguise a persons head, shame about the reliability.

* Technically this is actually Mirage's full special ability in ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', though in practice he almost invariably ends up using it to camouflage himself into {{invisibility}}.

* Technically this is actually Mirage's full special ability in ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', though in practice he almost invariably ends up using it to camouflage himself into {{invisibility}}. He did use the disguise ability at least once, in conjunction with Windcharger's MagnetismManipulation, to allow several non-combining Autobots to impersonate [[CombiningMecha Menasor]]. It [[CurbStompBattle didn't hold up for long]] against the real deal, but it did confuse [[BigBad Megatron]] long enough for his new superweapon to blow up in his face.

Added DiffLines:

*Ringo wears a holoprojector in the Tipaan arc of ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' because he has to disguise himself as a G'heddi'onian, so he needs to lighten his skin and give himself a more appropriate face. (He also wears a voice changer.) Later in the same arc, Paul and John briefly wear cloaks that make them look like Svenjaya so they can travel into the Svenjaya tunnels without being stopped. It's explicitly noted that the cloaks make them look like existing Svenjaya who are laid up—the community is small enough to notice strangers among them—and their guide has to quickly explain to another tribesmember why a sick individual is suddenly walking around.

* ''VideoGame/TheCrystalKey'' has a small holographic projector, complete with an attached camera to create new disguises. You have to short it out in one puzzle to uncover a secret passage, and you can take the projector with you, later in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/DrakeMaijstral'' series by Walter Jon Williams has a couple of examples:
** The darksuit used by allowed burglars when on the job is described as projecting a holographic "cloud of darkness". Very effective at night; not so much during the day.
** In ''Literature/TheCrownJewels'', the "Ronnie Romper" suits worn by Amalia Jensen's kidnappers are holographic. They make the two appear to be the same height, even though they're not, and move with their bodies, but don't allow for facial expressions--the fixed smile is mentioned as creeping people out.

* In Creator/MCAHogarth's ''Literature/ParadoxUniverse'' the Alliance has two versions. The "domino" is just a hologram and popular at parties, while "roquelaures" are exclusive to Fleet Intelligence and use a [[HardLight solidigraph]] that can be touched and alters the user's apparent mass and voice.

* ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}: Cataclysm'' introduces [[SpacePirate Turanic Raider]] gunships with this ability, which the player's faction reverse-engineer and fit to Mimic suicide-ships. It's useful for a few campaign objectives but human opponents in multiplayer are less easily fooled than the AI even without the specific tech to counter it.
