* The BadGuyBar scene in ''Film/ThreeAmigos'' is this. A German arms dealer comes in, shoots a man for making fun of him, and warns the bar that some of his friends are due to arrive soon. The titular amigos (really just actors) soon enter the bar and are mistaken for the dangerous Germans, even after doing a song-and-dance routine to try to "cheer everyone up" since they're all deathly afraid of being killed. After the amigos leave, the real Germans come in, get made fun of, and open fire on several patrons.

A German arms dealer comes in, shoots a man for making fun of him, and warns the bar that some of his even-more-dangerous friends are due to arrive soon. The titular amigos (really just actors) Amigos soon enter the bar and are mistaken for the dangerous Germans, Germans because the original German had said that the bar would most definitely know the others, and the garish costumes of the Amigos certainly stand out. They even after doing do a song-and-dance routine to try to "cheer everyone up" since they're all deathly afraid of being killed. After the amigos leave, the real Germans come in, get made fun of, and open fire on several patrons.

*** In the Missing Adventure book ''The Empire of Glass'', the First Doctor is mistaken for a visiting Cardinal when visiting Venice. ''Conversely'', the Cardinal himself is mistaken for the Doctor and escorted by the aliens who initially called the Doctor to chair a galactic disarmament treaty. The Cardinal manages a surprisingly good performance (he thought he had been called to Heaven to mediate in a civil war between angels), enough that the event's organizer lets him keep on chairing the treaty.
