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.]]
