* In one storyline of ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'', the villain (mentally disturbed former Titan Jericho) can [[GrandTheftMe jump into people's bodies]], and was last seen occupying ComicBook/{{Cyborg}}, so to draw out another hero (the Vigilante) who is also looking for him, Cyborg pretends to still be possessed and fights his teammates... only to get the robot half of his head shot out for his trouble when the Vigilante shows up. Sometimes this works ''too'' well...

* In the ''Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant'' novel ''Kingdom of the Wicked'', Valkyrie impersonates [[spoiler:her AntiChrist EvilCounterpart Darquesse]]. In a subversion, she acts her heart out and does a decent job, probably because the stakes are insanely higher than usual with this trope - [[spoiler:Darquesse is a [[PhysicalGod Physical Goddess]] who can survive ''beheadings'', and she is trying to bluff Mevolent, another PhysicalGod who can and has fought her to a standstill. Eventually, Mevolent sees through her, just in time for a handy Teleporter to get Val the hell out of there.]]
