* This is toyed with in a storyline for ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' -- when the president is [[ShoutOut kidnapped]] [[BadDudes by ninjas]], Mike finds the ninjas obeying him without reason or rhyme, letting the president go without a fight. Later on, it's discovered that Mike's ''non''-alternate universe variant (as Mike came from an alternate universe with Mynd) is their real boss. [[YouHaveFailedMe Well, was.]]

* The Decepticon toy-only character Sky Shadow in the ''TransformersCybertron'' has the same body mold as the Autobot Jetfire, which allows him to impersonate Jetfire as a spy. However, he actually ''is'' Jetfire, [[DoubleAgent impersonating an impersonator]] in order to spy on the Decepticons. Confused yet?

* Tom Lincoln in ''Film/TheIsland'' isn't necessarily evil. He's just a rich playboy whose philandering ways have resulted in him having a few months left to live. But when his "insurance policy", i.e. his clone Lincoln Six Echo shows up at his home, he appears to be glad to find out about it. He then immediately calls the cloning company and tells them about the clone. Tom Lincoln tells Lincoln Six Echo he will take him to the media to reveal this fraud but it's really a trap. At the end of the trap Lincoln Six Echo (conveniently wearing Tom's clothes) manages to slip his bracelet on Tom's arm, resulting in the latter's death. He further continues to imitate Tom by adopting his Scottish accent after hearing is for about an hour. Laurent, a trained mercenary, fails to detect any deception, even though the clone slipped the bracelet on Tom's arm in while Laurent was looking at them. Only later, while performing an autopsy on Tom's body, the doctor realizes that the bracelet is on the wrong arm. Meanwhile, the clone has infiltrated the cloning company as Tom (supposedly there to make a new clone), still using a Scottish accent and behaving like a rich playboy. Oh, and he says "shite" at one point, even though Tom never said the word in his presence.

* This trope is retty much the entire plot of Series/{{Ringer}}, although Bridget doesn't know that Siobhan is still alive [[spoiler:until the last episode of the first season.]] Bridget gets away with it most of the time, although [[spoiler:if on the occasions she's had to go to the police they'd thought of ''just taking her fingerprints'' the game would have been up a lot sooner...]]

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'':
** In "Gorilla Warfare", the Earth 2 Harrison Wells puts on his Earth 1 counterpart's Reverse Flash costume in an attempt to pacify Grodd, as Reverse Flash was one of the only humans Grodd liked. It fails because he's too nice; Grodd points out Reverse Flash never politely asks for anything and instead takes it.
** In "Enter Zoom", Linda Park impersonates her Earth 2 counterpart, Doctor Light, in an attempt to lure Zoom into a trap. Unfortunately, her [[BadBadActing acting skills are horrible]]. It's a moot point because Zoom takes the bait anyway to prove he's much more powerful than Flash and beat the crap out of him.
