* The "Wossamatta U" story arc in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfRockyAndBullwinkleAndFriend'' (which involved Bullwinkle becoming a star football player for the eponymous school and saving them from financial ruin) climaxed in Boris and Fearless Leader amassing a football team compromised of dangerous and big burly criminals and hooligans in order to take down the undefeated Wossamatta football team. In order to make things more humiliating in Wossamatta's supposedly impending defeat, Boris and Fearless Leader have their team do this. The disguises are terrible; mustaches and beard stubble are visible through the men's disguises, yet no one except Rocky catches on immediately (and thus allow the "girls" to get away with a lot of goals thanks to the team [[WouldntHitAGirl not wanting to hit a girl]] alongside other dirty tactics) until Rocky points this out to them.

* Done for absurdity in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' with Hildebrand Manderville during the 2.3 side storyline. [[spoiler:Hildebrand disguised himself as the bride who's described as the "most beautiful in the land" to lure out the thief. Everyone is fooled apart from the player character and another inspector who the player is with (surprisingly so as it is very obviously a decidedly masculine character wearing a dress) until the veil comes off. While the effort failed the distraction was enough for the other inspector to identify the target in question who was magically (and more effectively) disguised as the groom.]]

* A number of the ''Franchise/CarryOn'' films involve Creator/SidJames or Creator/BernardBresslaw (or another similarly unmistakeably masculine cast member) wearing a dress, and the authority figure they're trying to evade falling instantly for him, despite the fact that he's clearly Sid James or Bernard Bresslaw wearing a dress. (The fact that the authority figure was frequently Creator/KennethWilliams may add [[TransparentCloset a bit of subtext to this]].)

* This is a running gag with a background DropInCharacter on ''Series/GoodEats''.
* The "Pepper Pots" of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' are ''very'' obviously men playing the role of middle-aged or elderly women.

** Also in ''Discworld/TheTruth'', when the mountainous brain-damaged villain Mr. Tulip is disguised as a nun. It actually works until he starts swearing; as Sacharissa says, she's known genuinely female nuns who looked just as bad, if not worse.

* It's quite common for modern productions of ''{{Theatre/Iolanthe}}'' to have The Fairy Queen played by a man in quite obvious drag, playing off the DoubleEntendre of the word "Fairy".
