* In ''Film/StrokerAce'', Doc poses as a representative of the Miller Brewing Company and meets with Clyde Torkle to convince him that Miller will buy Torkle's franchise so long as he fires Stroker. Torkle is taken due to Doc's acting courses making him sound legit and never having been contacted by Miller before.

* The Dark Brotherhood quest chain in ''{{Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' requires you to murder and impersonate The Gourmet, Tamriel's greatest - and most secretive - chef, in order to get close to your ultimate target, [[spoiler:the emperor]]. It helps that no one actually knows what The Gourmet looks like (with the exception of the one guy you interrogated for The Gourmet's location, and subsequently killed to cover your tracks), so you can look and dress and act like anything you want.
