* Inverted in Creator/WilliamTenn's short "Lisbon Cubed": Alfred Smith's ''actual'' last name causes some alien spies to ''think'' he's the alien spy they were intending to meet, who had, of course, chosen the name Smith as a cover, and had previously occupied the same hotel room as Alfred.

* ''Film/MenInBlack'' got a lot of mileage out of advertising and promotional materials featuring [[Creator/TommyLeeJones Mr. Jones]] and [[Creator/WillSmith Mr. Smith]]. Within the film itself they go by the interchangeable names "White" and "Black."

* In ''Literature/TheFellowshipOfTheRing'', Frodo Baggins travels under the common hobbit name of "Mr. Underhill". It backfires when he reaches Bree and meets a group of hobbits ''actually'' named Underhill who, being genealogy buffs (a common interest among hobbits) ask him detailed questions about this supposed lineage to try and find out how their families are related.

* ''Two Fathers Justice'' (1985). The mercenary camp the two protagonists join calls all its trainees "Mr Smith" to preserve their anonymity. This comes in handy later on when they have to get past a guard who was also trained at the camp; they pointedly call him Mr Smith and pretend they were sent by his trainer to check security.
