* ''They Call Me Bruce'' (1982). Bruce is being chased by gangsters, so he hides in a dress shop disguised as a dummy. The gangsters are not idiots, though, so one of them stabs each dummy. As he's about to stab Bruce, the shop owner shrieks, distracting their attention so Bruce can change his position in the line.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', the Tanooki costume has the power of temporarily turning into a statue, which monsters will just walk past.
* Mario gets disguised in this manner (with a full-body gold paint job) to infiltrate Nimbus Castle in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''. It works perfectly, except that there's a minigame involved: an irritated Dodo marches in and takes out his frustration on the statues, and you have to jump his beak. Jump too early, or get hit by the beak, and he catches you. If you succeed, you get a special item, but still drop your disguise after a couple guards take out their frustration on you with spears.
* In a few rooms in ''VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach'', Peach must copy the pose of the statues as the wall opens its eyes, or else the wall will eat her.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "It's About Time", Twilight Sparkle sneaks into the Canterlot Archives with Pinkie Pie and Spike ([[ItMakesSenseInContext for reasons that made perfect sense at the time]]). At one point, Twilight disguises herself as a statue to avoid an approaching guard, and encourages Pinkie Pie and Spike to do the same. Hilariously enough, it seems to work. However, this is later subverted, as the guard apparently ''did'' notice Twilight, and he just wrote off the behavior as another of Twilight's odd character tics. And Twilight wasn't doing anything wrong (she was ''allowed'' in both the Royal Garden and the Archives), so she had no reason to hide from the guard anyway.

* A Creator/ChuckJones-era ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoon is set in a department store where Jerry hides on a shelf of lookalike toy mice. Tom picks up one at a time and pulls its tail. We hear "Ma-ma!...Ma-ma!...Ma-ma!...YEEEOWCH!"

* The first episode of ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego?'' Zack and Ivy try to hide from Carmen's henchmen in an art museum. They try to hide by posing as statues. The henchmen recognize them right away and capture the two. Ivy berates Zack for such a stupid plan.

* Aeviters and Cantors do this in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX''. There are a few [[GlamourFailure problems with their disguises]], though: Disguised Cantors keep moving their heads with a loud clacking sound. And while the Aeviters' disguises ''would'' have been perfect... if not for the fact that there are ''no'' non-Aeviter statues in the game.
