* The Changelings in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' are actually a race of almost liquid amoeba that [[ShapeChanger can change their shape]] to about anything. While the changeling in the main cast can only rudimentarily mimic humanoid features, more skilled ones can impersonate any person and even fooled close friends for years.

** Despite being primarily Lupin's shtick, the other characters are perfectly capable of pulling this off, even well enough to fool each other. One Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket episode's villain turned out to be Fujiko all along, and in another, Zenigata managed to get the jump on Lupin ([[DogPileOfDoom literally]]) by disguising as ''Fujiko''.

* 1980s British impressionist Phil Cool was famous for his ability to actually contort his face to look like his famous subjects, without using any make-up (he could switch from target to target in real-time on TV, in close-up).

* Robbie Rotten from the children's show ''Series/LazyTown'' qualifies. Although his disguises are [[PaperThinDisguise obvious to the audience]], he regularly manages to fool the denizens of Lazy Town with his disguises on a OncePerEpisode basis. He even [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngk3Urrpa8k sings about it]].

** The new series Master manages this due to TheNthDoctor. Nobody realizes [[spoiler:Professor Yana is him]], and he later regenerates into [[spoiler:Mr. Saxon, a mystery figure who's been hovering at the edge of things all season. He then travels a year back in time to ''become'' said Mr. Saxon.]] As usual, there's a SignificantAnagram: [[spoiler:Mister Saxon = Master No. Six.]] However, ThePowersThatBe have said that was wholly unintentional, and that when a character's title is [[spoiler:simply "Mr.," it's easier to make a Master anagram than avoid one. However, Saxon really is the sixth form of the Master: there's Delgado, zombie, Ainley, US film, Prof. Yana, and now Mr. Saxon. Assuming you count both actors playing the zombie as one incarnation, and don't count Gordon Tipple from the start of the film. Or the twelve incarnations before Delgado we never saw.]]

* In the old Basil Rathbone[=/=]Nigel Bruce ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'' film series, Rathbone was nearly impossible to identify most of the time, other times his nose gave him away. Also, just scroll down a little to the literature section for more info.

* TheLoneRanger put on fairly good disguises not too infrequently, since all he really had to do was remove his mask and add a beard or something - and the beard was more to keep the ''audience'' from seeing his true face, since if he were to ever show himself just plain maskless to other characters on the show, only Tonto would ever know who he was.
