* At the live {{Vocaloid}} concerts, the band is real enough, but the lead "singer" is a projected image (and not really a singer at all).

* {{Buckethead}} is the persona of Brian Patrick Carroll, who is so socially awkward that he invented the character to hide his face and distance himself from his audience. People who know him, however, say that his behavior "in character" is basically just him being himself.

* In ''{{Pondus}}'', Pondus believes that a certain rock band truly lives the creed of "Drugs, Sex & Rock'n'Roll". In one strip, the band is shown working out and eating healthy food. Suddenly their manager come in and yell at them that the journalists will be there any minute. And thus, they quickly trash themselves down to look as if they have been partying and boozing up all night. Then the scene switches to Pondus and his wife watching the television. A journalist is (or probably rather is pretending to be) surprised that the band members manage to stay healthy with this lifestyle. The singer explains this with "It's rock'n'roll", baby. It becomes a lifestyle." and Pondus tries to get his wife to accept this message as gospel.

* The County Medical Examiners are two {{Carcass}}-loving physicians joined by a much older, avant-garde physician who play DeathMetal based on what they see in their field. After years of mystery, it was implied in 2012 that the whole band was simply a side-project of musician Matt Widener (ex-Exhumed/Cretin).

Compare "{{Kayfabe}}" from ProfessionalWrestling. One subtrope is RobotOrSpacemanAlterEgo. Contrast AnonymousBand, where the mucicians simply hide their identities, and FakeBand, where the band itself is fictional.

* Music/DirEnGrey's vocalist, Music/{{Kyo}}, presents a facade of being the personification of InsaneEqualsViolent onstage, even self-injuring for ''real'' on a level equivalent to Music/{{Mayhem}}'s Dead. In RealLife, however, he is reported to be shy, intelligent, and ''most definitely not'' suffering from extreme mental illness or violent.
