This situation can be part of a {{Spot|TheImposter}} or BluffTheImpostor scene. See also ConfrontingYourImposter, which is going one step further: an impostor meets the very person he's masquerading as. If it actually works, consider SeamlessSpontaneousLie.

* In ''Webcomic/TerrorIsland'', Stephen makes up the name "Ned Q. Sorcerer, D.D.S." on the spot when attempting to crash a class reunion at Center of the Earth University. The ''real'' Mr. Sorcerer shows up a few strips later (but is catapulted away.) Stephen must later do a presentation in front of all the university alumni entitled "Ned Q. Sorcerer answers trivia questions about his life." He attributes the real Ned showing up to bilocation.

Ironically, this actually convinces the previously-skeptical audience that Stephen really ''is'' Ned, since apparently bilocating and accusing one's self of being a fake is a very Ned Q. Sorcerer-esque thing to do.

* Donald Westlake's unlucky criminal John Dortmunder once, under pressure, claimed his name was "John Diddums," and then started to use it as a regular alias. Whenever people asked about the name that sounds like babytalk, he'd tell them, "It's Welsh," and they'd be embarrassed for questioning it. And then he ran into a British gentleman who remarked, "I know a Diddums family near Caernarvon. Might you be a relative?"

** Dharma makes Greg do this in another episode, pretending to be a southerner in a golf accessory store asking for a "[[FunetikAksent Naan Aaron]]". Unfortunately there is a man FROM Memphis a few feet away from them, who turns out to be the newly appointed local judge. He's quickly shown to have an ''extreme'' dislike for people mocking his accent, forcing Dharma and Greg to participate in a [[SnowballingLie increasingly more and more elaborate charade]] leading up to being introduced to Vice-President Al Gore with all of the Finkelsteins and Montgomery-Burns family members dressed up as southern stereotypes.
