* In the ''StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "Duet", Cardassian file clerk Aamin Marritza impersonates Cardassian occupation work camp administrator Gul Darhe'el who is himself "impersonating" Marritza. His plan is to be captured by the Bajorans, to have the latter part of the facade exposed, and to be executed as Darhe'el [[TheAtoner to force the Cardassian regime to face the truth about its war crimes]].

* At Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s The Bash in 2009, Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr fought against Wrestling/ChrisJericho in a [[HumiliatingWager Mask vs Title]] match. Rey losing would mean that he'd have to surrender the right to wear his mask. During the match, Jericho tried to remove Rey's mask to leave him open to a finisher (the loss of a mask [[WeaksauceWeakness is considered shameful]] to a MaskedLuchador), only for Rey to have been GenreSavvy and wear an extra mask underneath, allowing him to win the Intercontinental Championship.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Tarquin disguises himself as Thog by wearing a face-concealing helmet and copying Thog's style of HulkSpeak. Roy quickly figures out that he isn't fighting Thog and [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0852.html yanks the helmet off]] to see who's underneath... only to reveal that Tarquin is ''also'' wearing a purple balaclava with "Nope!" written across the forehead. Ironically, the complexity of the facade pretty much confirms their genre-savy suspicion that it was Tarquin after all.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos'', [[spoiler: Melvin Voyager, the escaped convict from Central Prison, reveals that he is actually Ashleigh Crichton, the long-lost brother of movie protagonist Julia Crichton. Except that he actually isn't; he is Julia and Ashleigh's family's old bodyguard Atlas, with Ashleigh's face grafted over his own as part of his BatmanGambit.]]

** 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]].
