* One of the units in ''VideoGame/{{Calculords}}'' is the SMC Flanker, a scout hiding behind a bush, wearing all green with branches sticking out of his headband. They're ''very'' mobile -- they have the Double Time ability, which means they advance twice as fast. The SMC Flanker is one of the only Push units with Double Time, maybe because the idea is that the enemy doesn't notice he's there.

Frequently the object will end up somewhere it has no right to be (e.g., a shrub may end up in the middle of a street). Sometimes the object will fall apart almost completely, leaving them with only a few twigs left, which they then either look at and toss away, or maybe continue to hide behind. Alternately, the disguise might [[GoneHorriblyRight work a little too well]] and get mistaken for the real thing, with humorous consequences (ie: a fake tree getting "marked" by a passing dog).

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghillie_suit Ghillie Suits]] let their wearer blend in with near any foliage in which they can take cover. Useful for snipers, hunters, and anyone looking for all-around stealth capability, they turn their wearers into Mobile Shrubbery incarnate. Their most ''literal'' forms are actual shrubbery taken from the area and incorporated into the Ghillie Suit's makeup.

* The ''Franchise/DarkSouls'' series has the Chameleon spell, which does basically this: your character is covered by an illusion which makes you look like a piece of scenery, until either the player attacks or is attacked themselves. A Chameleon'ed character can still move around without breaking the illusion, but this kind of gives away the disguise (trees, boxes, and the like typically do not move around on their own... even in Dark Souls).
