* As the page quote indicates, the WWII comedy ''Film/AllTheQueensMen'' (allegedly BasedOnATrueStory) completely destroys any possibility of seeming authentic because the actors (including EddieIzzard) make absolutely no attempt to be believable as women.

* ''BarneyMiller'' - the detectives were assigned to disguise themselves in drag to catch criminals - Dietrich took to the job with good humor, but never realized he just looked like a big guy in a dress.

* There is a Myth/{{Norse|Mythology}} story in which Thor must disguise himself as Freya in order to trick the giants and get his hammer back (and yes, [[FreudWasRight the hammer stands in for exactly what you think it does]]). The giants, who are apparently not all that familiar with human(oid) sexual dimorphism, fall for every one of Loki's excuses about why "Freya" looks so haggard, has such a big appetite and can eat an entire cow, has a ''beard'' and can drink so much mead in a single gulp.

* The Buffalo Brothers in ''Literature/{{Relativity}}'' are a pair of StupidCrooks. At one point, they need to get a message to the heroes, but they don't want to get caught, so they disguise themselves as old ladies. The disguises weren't very good, and probably wouldn't have worked anyway, but the fact that one of the brothers had a beard just made it beyond obvious.

* In ''Manga/DontenNiWarau'' Tenka disguises himself as a woman so he can spy on Chutaro. Since it's played for laughs it looks just way over the top and nobody's buying the disguise, anyway.

* 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.]]
