* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'':
** In Episode 65, Kaeloo sees Mr. Cat disguised as Pretty and takes a while to realize that it was a disguise. She then looks around, finds the real Pretty, and tries to yank her face off thinking it's a disguise.
** In Episode 83, [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Stumpy]] waits for a long time for his girlfriend [[TheUnseen Ursula]] to show up to a party. When the party is halfway over, he wonders why she hasn't come yet, and gets the idea that maybe someone at the party is Ursula in disguise. He then decides that the imposter must be Pretty, so he tries to pull her face off, thinking it's a mask.

* ''VideoGame/NightTrap'': In [[OvershadowedByControversy the "controversial" bathroom scene]], when Lisa hears an auger in the shower, she thinks the auger is Megan in a "scary costume" and opens the shower door in an attempt to get it out; but when it starts coming for her, she gets an "OhCrap" look and tries to escape but is cornered by two more augers... and that could be the end of her if not for the floor trap near the shower that the auger is getting on (provided that you need a special code to activate the trap and save her in time).
** Inverted if you try to catch one of the "augers" on one occasion... [[spoiler:without even knowing that the "auger" is actually TokenBlack teammate Eddie in disguise.]]

** The episode, "Music Day" has a cartoon where Buster spends the majority of it spoiling a children's concert hosted by the Raffi Main/{{Expy}} Ruffee, while dressed in a diaper and a green bonnet. When Ruffee finally does reach his [[RageBreakingPoint breaking point]], he yells at who appears to be the disguised Buster, but when he picks him up, he's actually a human baby dressed in a nearly identical way. This [[OhCrap proves to be a big mistake]] when said human baby's oversized father [[PapaWolf scolds Ruffee for doing so, and later beats him up]].

* An episode of ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' has Heloise and Beezy fighting over who gets Jimmy as their houseguest. {{L|ouisCypher}}ucius comes to Heloise's house when she has Jimmy to go over something work related with her. She mistakes him for Beezy in disguise, and launches him into the sky. This is a case of ForgotAboutHisPowers, since Heloise would usually be smart enough to realize that [[TheBigGuy Beezy]] is too big to pose as [[TheNapoleon Lucius]]. To make this point clearer, Beezy disguises as Heloise later in the episode, and [[TheDitz Jimmy]] sees right through it.

* In the ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' episode "The Empty Hearse", an eccentric DVD-seller comes into John's surgery and John thinks he's actually Sherlock in disguise. He isn't, but the scene pays homage to a scene in the equivalent short story, where Holmes turns up at Watson's house disguised as an eccentric bookseller.
