* Duke attempts this in ''Machinim/DukeNukemForeverquest''. It doesn't fool anyone, largely because the bush is an obvious cardboard cutout, and because Duke's ramrod-stiff pose means he's largely visible anyway.

* ''Film/{{Red}}''. Frank Moses has to go to retired FemmeFatale Victoria to get patched up. The others are convinced she might shoot him instead, but she's quite friendly once she realises Frank isn't there to shoot him. She tells Frank to lie down so she can look at his injury, "And tell Marvin to stand down before he gets hurt." Cue zoom in to Marvin badly dressed as a bush out the window behind her.

* ''The King's Rifle'' by Biyi Bandele. One of the West African soldiers leans against a tree and gets a nasty shock when it runs off only to get blown up in a minefield. He spends the rest of the book in a state of paranoia, including shooting at his own shadow because he's convinced that if Japanese soldiers can become trees, they can also disguise themselves as shadows.

* 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.
