* ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'' plays with this: [[AC:Death]] winds up filling in for the actor playing him in a play. People normally don't see him because of the WeirdnessCensor, but now they're ''expecting'' to see Death... and he gets stage fright.

** Done intentionally by the wizards in ''Discworld/MovingPictures''. Senior wizards can't be seen attending popular entertainment, so they need a disguise. And what better disguise than someone who's disguised as a wizard, because obviously that's not a disguise a ''real'' wizard would use. They even have false false beards (you take two bits of wire, stick them in your sideburns and hook them over your ears). Inevitably, the point arrives when they need to convince someone they're actually senior wizards, and can't.

** On two occasions, [=SpongeBob=] is being kicked out of some place: the first time it was a tough-guy club and the second time it was a slumber party. Each of these times, someone who looks a lot like [=SpongeBob=] shows up. In the first instance, the bouncer tries to pull off [=SpongeBob=]'s wig (the preceding scene suggested [=SpongeBob=] to get a new haircut) which looks like black greaser hair, only to see the real [=SpongeBob=] show up in a blatantly obvious rainbow wig, and let the Mistaken for an Imposter person inside. In the second, it is a girl who wants to go to Pearl's party, but is kicked out because the partygoers are annoyed with [=SpongeBob=]. She runs off crying, and SpongeBob comments, "Whoever that was, [[HypocriticalHumor she was uuugly!]]"
