* Attempted by Edmond in the 2002 film ''Film/TheCountOfMonteCristo'' (based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas) after his time in prison when he meets his old employer. He leans in close and pushes the hair from his face, but the old man does not recognize him. Apparently, the years had changed him a little too much.
** The original novel, at least, justifies this by mentioning all the ways Dantes has changed during his imprisonment, including losing a lot of weight and his skin going pale white due to lack of sunlight (he was previously a sailor and therefore would have been quite tanned originally).
*** Played straight, however, when Edmond reveals his identity to the various targets of his revenge plot. [[OhCrap His victims don't take it well.]]

* Reversed and parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', in the episode [[TheSimpsonsS9E17LisaTheSimpsons "Lisa the Simpsons"]], in which Jasper attempts to [[HumanPopsicle freeze himself]] in the Kwik-E-Mart freezer, in a bit to behold the wonders of the future. He defrosts and reanimates within a few days of his hibernation, and, assuming that he had indeed been frozen for many years, gazes in amazement around him. Upon encountering Apu, Jasper laments to him that "time has ravaged [Apu's] once youthful looks".

* Played for laughs in ''Film/{{Sabrina}}'' when the title character returns from two years in [[GayParee Paris]] and is met at the train by her lifelong crush, over whom she tried to [[DrivenToSuicide kill herself previously.]] He doesn't recognize her for a ''long'' time because she's [[SheCleansUpNicely gotten so elegant and lovely]] over there.

* ''Film/{{Deewaar}}'': When Daavar and Vijay meet for the second time, Daavar doesn't recognize Vijay. In fairness to Daavar, Vijay has aged from a young boy to a grown man by this point. It is also ''not'' a ForgottenFirstMeeting; when Vijay reveals how they met, Daavar knows what Vijay is referring to.

* A very unusual example: in Andrzej Sapkowski's [[TheWitcher Witcher]] Cycle: Emhyr var Emereis, [[EvilOverlord Emperor of Nilfgaard]] and one of the main antagonists from the second book onwards, turns out to have been [[spoiler: Duny, a fairly likable cursed prince whom Geralt, the main character, helped during one of the early stories. What's more, Duny didn't seek revenge at all; rather, he just happened to be the exiled prince of [[TheEmpire Nilfgaard]] rather than a more innocuous kingdom, not to mention enough of a {{Magnificent Bastard}} to reclaim his throne and launch an EvilPlan to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over]]/[[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans save the world]].]] Not too long after the Reveal (Geralt actually somehow recognising him when they finally meet face to face), the Emperor [[spoiler:pretty much abandons his pursuit of the heroes and also signs peace with the Northern Kingdoms, ceasing to be an antagonist (it's not nearly as absurd or anticlimactic as it sounds, mind you)]].

* Pops up a bit in ''WesternAnimation/TheBreadwinner.'' Idrees recognizes Nurallah, though can't put a name to the face. Idrees himself acts like he's doing this though Nurallah recognized him right away. [[SweetPollyOliver Shauzia]] pulls a rare cheerful example of this when she recognizes Parvana also disguising herself as a boy.
