** Shows up as part of the plot for ''Discworld/Jingo'' too. When an assassination attempt on the Klatchan ambassador seems to point to Klatch as the culprit, Commander Vimes is quick to point out the ease with which the evidence could be a frame up. He spends most of the book thinking his primary suspect is in league with rogue Ankh-Morpork elements to start a war with Klatch, only [[spoiler: to find out from 71-hour Achmed that the flimsy evidence had been specifically planted to make him think that due to his own predisposition to distrust his own countrymen.]]

* The [[BigBad White Queen]] in ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' pulls this on the main character Kyousuke. At one point, she disguises herself as a person he was planning on teaming up with, seemingly to disrupt his strategy to kill her. [[spoiler:Kyousuke sees through this disguise, avoids her surprise attack, and successfully kills her... then she shows up again, and reveals that it was all part of the plan. She actually wanted him to succeed in defeating her (and managed to survive through unknown means), because in doing so, he would unleash an even greater monster into the world. This would force him to work together with her, which is what she really wanted. Additionally, the real purpose of the disguise was to get him used to working with her]].

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'': Beastboy attempts to remove Robin's mask, only to find more and more masks underneath it. In a couple days time, the whole tower is filled with masks. [[spoiler:And then his actual face turns out to be a mask too.]]

* Part of the way [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deniable_encryption deniable encryption]] schemes work is that it's mathematically impossible to determine how many layers are in the facade. This plus an InfractionDistraction means that at any point you can insist you've given up all the passwords and there'd be no easy way to prove otherwise. You could store a PornStash in the top layer, {{squick}}ier and questionably-legal porn in the second, and military state secrets in the third.
