* VandalSavage, from TheDCU, was [[AncientEgypt Cheops]], UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar, UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler, and UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}}. At least that's his story. Every so often there'll be a {{retcon}} in which another immortal will say he's making half of it up.

* Flint, from the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Requiem For Methuselah," claims to have been Music/JohannesBrahms, Creator/WilliamShakespeare, Creator/LeonardoDaVinci, Myth/{{Merlin}}, Lazarus, UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, [[Characters/BooksOfKings King Solomon]], and Methuselah, among others, in addition to "a hundred other names that you do not know". His birth name was Akharin, a Sumerian soldier. In the (presumably non-canonical) Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes crossover comic series published by IDW, Flint also turns out to be the Trek universe doppleganger of the immortal DC Comics villain Vandal Savage (see Comics, above).

* ComicBook/TheEternals of MarvelComics have been everything from kings to [[GodGuise Gods]]. One even goes by the name [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]] (he also performed one of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Hercules' Labors]], having been mistaken for the man himself, along with {{Samson}} and Atlas at other times). Their [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute hideously deformed]] enemies the Deviants have been the inspiration for various mythical monsters and demons.

* A weird case in an episode of ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', which takes place in modern day with the cast and crew of the ''Hercules'' show. The star of the show, Kevin Sorbo, turns out to be secretly Hercules himself, still alive, and occasionally comments on the show's plot being different from what he remembers. So, it's Hercules pretending to be Kevin Sorbo pretending to be Hercules.

** Oliver Haddo from W. Somerset Maugham's ''The Magician'' is established to have had multiple identities; sometimes he faked his death and took on a new name, other times he outright possessed people. In all, he's been Karswell Trelawney (a double reference to M.R. James' ''Casting the Runes'' and Anthony Powell’s ''A Dance to the Music of Time''), Hjalmar Poelzig from Universal's ''The Black Cat'', Mocata from Creator/DennisWheatley's ''The Devil Rides Out'', Adrian Marcato from ''Film/RosemarysBaby'', Kosmo Gallion from ''Series/TheAvengers'', Charles Felton from Robert Irwin’s ''Satan Wants Me'' and finally [[spoiler:[[Series/HarryPotter Lord Voldemort]]]]. The linking factor is that most of these characetrs were based on Creator/AleisterCrowley.

* Dean Cain appeared on a season 7 episode of ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' as Doctor Curtis Knox, an immortal who had been, among other people, UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte and UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper. Who is very likely Vandal Savage mentioned above under Comic Books. For added fun, Knox is dealt with by the ComicBook/MartianManhunter who's played by Phil Morris, the same guy who voiced Savage in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' animated series. [[spoiler:Which, in a very roundabout way, makes him TheDanza.]]
