* The title character of ''{{Supreme}}'', [[ClarkKenting aka Ethan Crane]], due to his powers, ages very slowly, and, despite being born in 1920, [[OlderThanTheyLook looks to be in his mid-to-late thirties]]. When he met the universe's now elderly {{Expy}} of Lana Lang [[spoiler: inhabited by the spirit of the ComicBook/LexLuthor {{Expy}}]], in the late 90s, she briefly recognises him as her old friend Ethan Crane, but then assumes he must be Ethan Crane's son since Ethan couldn't possibly look the same as he did decades ago. For the rest of the series he goes by the name "Ethan Crane Jr.", [[ThrowItIn posing as his own son]]. It's helped by the fact that Supreme, and therefore "Ethan Crane Sr." disappeared into space in the late 60s, and only returned over twenty years later. Although we later learn he never bothered to make up a name for his mother.

* ''{{Magellan}}'' has the case of elderly superhero [[spoiler:Gola Beh]] pulling this after [[spoiler:being exposed to a forced FountainOfYouth. She pretends to be a grand-niece named Olga Beh]]. * ''{{VampireCheerleaders}}'': The bakertown cheerleaders. Since they're the eternally-young type, with each readmission to the school they pass themselves off as the "previous generation's daughters", claiming that they're from a long line of expert cheerleaders when in fact they've had over fifty years of cheerleading experience. [[DrunkenMaster It shows]].

* Mick St. John tries this trick in an episode of ''{{Moonlight}}'', although he is actually pretty young by vampire standards (only 90). The only reason he does this is because a criminal he helped put away decades before (and revealed his GameFace to) has been released on parole and is out for revenge (having brushed up on his vampire lore in prison). When Beth mentions that Mick's name came up in relation to the criminal, Mick claims it was his late father, Mick St. John, Sr. Later on, Beth interviews a retired blind cop who personally knew Mick back in the day (and still does, as Mick still visits him) and mentions Mick's "late father". The cop is confused, as the Mick he knows is alive and well... and never had children. By next episode, though, this is no longer necessary, as Beth knows the truth.
