* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', [[spoiler:you seem to rescue Flynn at Tsukiji Konganji]], but they turn out to be Shesha, who has not only grown very strong after being defeated several times but can assume human forms and not just his trademark snake forms.

* ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse'': Agent 57 (a pun on Heinz's "57 varieties") was originally this, before later becoming a shapeshifter. We never saw his true form, but his son Agent 58 appears in the remake and is a mimic octopus.

*** For a time, the Chameleon also used a holographic belt that could instantly create an image of whoever he wanted to pose as.
*** Chameleon is also astounding in able to imitate someone. When he posed as Tigra, Avengers Academy member Finesse (who prides herself on knowing a person through their fighting moves) is in denial Chameleon could duplicate Tigra's micro-expressions enough to fool her.
-->'''Chameleon''': Well...that's why I'm a professional.

* ComicBook/{{Mystique}}, ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' - she's a shapeshifter, and is quite comfortable as either a man or a woman. On the other hand, she has more difficulty maintaining a shape that is different in mass than herself. For example, when she spent a few years pretending to be a Governor's wife, using the name Mallory Brickman, part of her disguise was that she was about twice her normal weight. Since she was going to have to maintain this image for a very long time, she gained weight, to bring her own mass up to the same amount as "Mallory".
* The Chameleon from ''{{Spider-Man}}''. Mysterio has also pulled this off, as part of his MasterOfIllusion schtick.
* Franchise/{{Batman}}
** And his foe Clayface is a shapeshifter. He has fought a number of other masters of disguise over his career, such as False Face, Chimera and Jane Doe.
** ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} would certainly qualify, as she often employs elaborate disguises for her heists. In a pinch she's also [[MuggedForDisguise been known to appropriate the outfits of unfortunate victims]].
** Both TheJoker and HarleyQuinn are extremely good with disguises and impersonations as well.

* ''Franchise/MarvelUniverse'':
** ComicBook/{{Elektra}} sometimes wears disguises to get close to her target.
** Mr. Fantastic, of the ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'', has infrequently used his stretching powers to assume a different face.
** ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' villain, The Chameleon. He wears exquisitely made latex masks, is a skilled mimic, and his own mask is equipped with voice changer software.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has the Baroque Works agent Mr. 2 Bon Clay, who can shapeshift into anyone he's touched, going by undetected. Really useful when you're working for an evil mastermind who intends to ravage a country with civil war: just impersonate the king and frame him! The Straw Hats manage to find a counter to his power: drawing X's on their arms and hiding them in bandages to serve as both a mark of friendship and a means of identification.
