** In the manga, Gein--TheDragon to Enishi Yukishiro, the final BigBad--proves to be a Master of Disguise as well. [[spoiler:He was disguised as his own puppet, Iwanbou, in order to spy on Kenshin from within Shishio's group--and Shishio, himself a GenreSavvy villain who's always on his guard with most other people, never gave ''any'' indication that he knows of Iwanbou's true nature]].

* Discussed on ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' as Sherlock openly notes that even the best latex masks and wigs have limitations, that just looking like a person isn't enough to stand up to close observation.

* Discussed on ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' as Sherlock openly notes that even the best latex masks and wigs have limitations, that just looking like a person isn't enough to stand up to close observation.observation when the posture, the behaviour or even just the voice don't match. It's possible to not look like oneself, but next to impossible to look like a specific other person to their friends. [[spoiler:That's why the murderer of the week impersonated a certain elderly woman at night having a seizure seen through a dirty window, neatly obscuring or explaining away any discrepancies.]]

* In ''VideoGame/PokemonHeartGoldAndSoulSilver'', Petrel ''desperately'' wishes he was this (he keeps make-up in his belt for just such a purpose), but the two times he disguises himself (As Giovanni in Team Rocket's hideout and as the Director in the Radio Tower) are completely pointless, and his [[PaperThinDisguise disguise fails to fool the player anyway]]. Amusingly enough, the player's disguise works perfectly, until your Rival comes along...

* Parodied in the ''SpyFox'' games, where Fox only has to put on the {{Mook}} uniform to get past the real ones. However, he still needs to go into more depth in order to get past advanced security.

* Arfoire of HyperdimensionNeptuniaReBirth1 has the power to "Copy," being the [[MoeAnthropomorphism Anthromorphism]] of Digital Piracy. Due to that, she can copy others' appearances, general mannerisms, and abilities. [[spoiler: She uses it to take Blanc's place as Lady White Heart of Lowee.]]

* Decoy Octopus from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' is quite possibly the most detail-obsessed MasterOfDisguise ever, being able to flawlessly mimic a person's speech and mannerisms, and either ingesting or injecting himself with the '''blood''' of the person he's imitating. But he's unable to fool [[spoiler: The FOXDIE pathogen]], which kills him.

* In ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'' there is a MasterOfDisguise card, which shows a hot female Blood Elf... but it's actually a male Tauren. They don't call him MasterOfDisguise for nothing.

* Assassin and terrorist Carlos the Jackal, so much so that he got his nickname from a fictional MasterOfDisguise and ''became'' a fictionalized nemesis for [[Literature/TheBourneSeries Jason Bourne]]; see ''Literature/TheDayOfTheJackal'', above.

* Artemus Gordon in ''Film/WildWildWest''. He can become President Grant, a fur trapper or a rather ugly woman. (He isn't perfect, however. His Grant disguise didn't fool West because he was drinking from a Harvard shot glass, and West knew that the real Grant went to West Point.)

Added DiffLines:

**Continues in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. One example: George takes the form of Folse Tarmi to get past some robots, and worries that his accent will trip him up. Luckily he doesn't need to speak to them.
