* A RunningGag in the last issue of the ''Comicbook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' "Breakdowns" storyline was a disillusioned Maxwell Lord being asked "Aren't you..." and replying "No, I just look like him" (or "[[ThatManIsDead I was"). When he decides the League still needs him after all, he hails a cab, and when the cabbie says "Hey, ain't you..." he replies "[[HesBack Damn right I am!]]"

* ''Film/{{Airplane}}'', the co-pilot is Roger Murdock (pro basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar). A kid recognizes him as Kareem, but he initially denies it until the kid repeats some insulting statements his father made about him. He then admit he ''is'' Kareem, and apparently has a second career as an airline pilot that he performs under a false identity.

* The Fnrrns in the ''Literature/{{Terra}}'' books don't have the concept of lying, which is why prior to ''Terra's World'' Lppb, who's learned a thing or two from humans, is able to get out of a conversation by saying he's not Lppb, he just looks like him. This comes back to bite him in a major way, when [[spoiler: the Fnrrn he's lied to figures it out, and uses the fact all other Fnrrns believe what people tell them to take over Mlml.]]

* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' has a more personal variant: the vampire player character is recognized by an old friend from their living days, and has to convince her she's mistaken in order to preserve the {{Masquerade}}. It's a sobering reminder of the life that's been stripped from them... unless the player character is a CrazyAwesome {{Cloudcuckoolander}} [[VampireVarietyPack Malkavian]], in which case they can convince her that they're actually her long-lost pet turtle instead.
