* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. At the start of Season 6, Tyrion and Varys do this to gauge the mood on the streets of Meereen (basically starvation, anger, rebellion and religious fanaticism = not good). [[MasterOfDisguise Varys]] has to point out that Tyrion is still strutting about like a noble, so he's not fooling anyone.

* The twist at the end of the SherlockHolmes movie ''Pursuit To Algiers'' is that Holmes has disguised the about-to-be-crowned-king prince as a ship's deckhand and a cop as the prince to throw the prince's enemies off the trail. [[WeWouldHaveToldYouBut He doesn't tell Watson]] because he fears that Watson would give it away by treating the "deckhand" with the sort of respect he would normally show royalty.

* When we first meet Aragorn, the rightful king, in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', he's a ranger named Strider. We don't find out his true identity for quite some time. Tolkien himself didn't know at first: in the first drafts he was considering making the character a Hobbit {{badass}} who had had adventures with Gandalf and been captured and tortured in Mordor.
