* The ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' had Berry try to make Bloo hers by disguising herself as a rich kid named [[FunWithHomophones Barry]]. Her disguise was actually convincing up until her masquerade was exposed.

* Catherine Martel from ''Series/TwinPeaks'' does this after the fire burns down the mills. Disguised as a Japanese business man. In fact the actor Piper Laurie had to come on set disguised in order to keep the plot twist a secret and she managed to fool a couple of the other actors; including her on-screen husband.

* A funny/creepy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAQCG2T_6b0 chewing gum commercial]] which spoofs the soap opera formula, when an old man reveals to his son that he's really his mother in disguise. Then, the son peels off his mask to reveal that he's just a puppeteer dummy.

* Played straight then parodied in ''Series/LeCoeurASesRaisons''. When Brad reveals that he used one to pass as Lewis to spy on his wife Becky, she reveals that she ''wasn't'' Becky. She proceeds to tear off her mask to show that she was... Becky. Brock even tells her that is was a very bad choice for a mask.
--> Becky: "It's all that was left at the store."

* Parodied in a ''ComicBook/{{MAD}}'' story that is supposedly teaching readers how to make a parody comic. At the end, the two main characters (Brutus and Marc Anthony, as this was supposed to be a ''Theather/JuliusCaesar'' parody) start unmasking themselves to reveal they're someone else, and it goes over and over with the two guys removing thousands of masks. The narrator comments that "Unmasking scenes are great to end a story. Everyone takes off their masks and reveal that the bad guy is not really a bad guy and the good guy s not really a good guy... also, I'm not the real narrator and this is not ''[=MAD=]''...", with the last panel showing the narrator unmask himself to reveal he was Creator/MarilynMonroe all along, and also unmasks the panel revealing a ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse'' comic underneath.

** Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' episode "Buddy Building." At one point on their mission, Goofy and Max bump into each other, and then Goofy tugs off his rubber mask to reveal Pete. But then he [[MultiLayerFacade pulls off that mask]] to reveal Giblet the Clown, and [[OverlyLongGag under that is]] a [[AttractiveBentGender cute female dogface person]], and then "she" pulls that mask off to reveal Goofy once again, who somehow is able to [[BodyHorror take off his own face]], but Max isn't amused.
** It's even in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'', out of all places, in the episode "Never Give a Gummi an Even Break"; first Cubbi Gummi scares Grammi with an orc mask as a prank, and then an elf named Carney disguises himself as a Gummi Bear as a sideshow exhibit wearing a [[ExpressiveMask particularly convincing rubber mask]] that manages to fool Grammi and take him in. But once she figures out the trick, she allows Carney to capture them for the sideshow, where an accident causes Grammi's mask to fall off and reveal a human woman underneath (that looks suspiciously like [[ActorAllusion her voice actress June Foray]]), but once the coast is clear and the Gummis are safe, Grammi [[MultiLayerFacade removes the old woman mask to reveal her true self]] once again.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' has done this quite a bit as well, such as the means of [[spoiler: The Collector's toon disguise]] in "Gone Bonkers", a duck suit that Lucky reluctantly wears to go undercover in "The Cheap Sheep Sweep," a ghost playing the MirrorRoutine on Bonkers in "When the Spirit Moves You" (similar to the ''Scooby-Doo'' example above) and others.

** Spoofed in "Business Guy" when Quagmire is [[MarijuanaIsLSD high on weed and he hallucinates]] a rabbit sitting next to him in his airplane cockpit. The "rabbit" pulls off his latex mask to reveal another Quagmire, and they both briefly freak out. The real Quagmire thinks there may be a rabbit head under his human skin, but ends up [[BodyHorror tearing off his scalp]].

** It's also done in the U.S. Acres episode "Rooster Revenge," where a male pig that seems to be an {{Expy}} or Orson is revealed to be [[spoiler:Lanolin in a rubber mask]].

* In ''Film/TheMasterOfDisguise'', the mask device is used (sometimes even parodied) for several of the disguises in this film. Such examples include Fabrizzio Disguisey (portrayed by James Brolin) masquerading as Bo Derek, Michael Johnson, Wrestling/JesseVentura, and Music/JessicaSimpson. For these disguises, the CastAsAMask technique is used, and only the unmaskings of Bo Derek and Jessica Simpson are depicted on screen, while Fabrizzio in his Michael Johnson disguise lifts up the Constitution scroll to cover his body out of frame, and among moving it back down he goes from black to his true Caucasian identity, and Jesse Ventura is only seen tugging on his cheeks as we cut away to a close-up of the villain as we hear the mask stretching offscreen. Similarly, Grandpa Disguisey disguises himself at one part as a smaller female maid, done via the "actor switch" technique and an off-screen unmasking, and Pistachio Disguises (portrayed by DanaCarvey) wears various disguises, the majority of them played by Carvey himself under different makeup/prosthetics, yet the only disguise we see him unmasking onscreen is when the villain manages to see through Pistachio's disguise of one of his henchmen (where the actor-switch trick was employed yet again).

* ''Film/TheAssociate'' is a semi-combination of the previous two examples. WhoopiGoldberg dresses as [[SweetPollyOliver an elderly white man]] to get ahead in business. Her latex mask fools everyone perfectly.
