* Early on in ''BaldursGate'' you meet an unassuming "[[NominalImportance Old Man]]" in some very obvious bright red wizard getup. This being an RPG set in the Forgotten Realms and the old man's penchant for CrypticConversation, you should have no trouble figuring out that it's an Elminster cameo. Don't worry if you do, though -- Elminster and Drizzt have cameos throughout the entire series (when it's clear who they are). Another of Elminster's cameos has him taking the pseudonym "Terminsel" during Jaheira's personal quest. She figures it out quickly enough.

* There is a story about the Prince of Wales, the future Edward VII - a hotel in Swanage, Dorset (England) claims that he spent time travelling incognito without a retinue and arrived at the hotel only to find it full. They managed to find him a couch to sleep on - and he never let on that he was the son of Queen Victoria. That was, of course, in the days before even illustrated newspapers could print photographs of anyone, including the royal family.

* Shi Ryuuki from ''SaiunkokuMonogatari'' does this a lot. Not that he always succeeds; Shuurei saw through his disguise immediately when they first met (he was using the name of someone she had met not ten minutes ago, among other things). He does manage to pull it off at other times, though - at least once so well that when he reveals his identity, his subjects don't initially ''believe'' him.
