Sometimes, it's a detective or police character behaving as if they were corrupt, or a criminal. This will usually turn out to be the FakeDefector.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', "Man in the Mirror" has Fred find himself in a post-apocalyptic Crystal Cove accompanied by an older Daphne. Meanwhile in the present, Fred is acting distant and doesn't seem to know what he's doing, which raises suspicion from his friends. [[spoiler:It turns out that Brad and Judy took plastic surgery to impersonate Fred (the one with the gang) and Daphne (the one in the post-apocalypse) respectively in an attempt to steal the {{MacGuffin}} from our heroes.]]

* On the other end of the brain damage spectrum, it's possible to damage the part of your mind responsible for recognizing people. Not that you'd forget who they were, mind you. You'd know who your mother is, exactly what she looks like, but your mind just won't recognize the person who acts like and looks like your mother as actually being your mother. People with this type of brain damage believe that everyone they know [[InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers has been replaced with an imposter]]. All of a sudden, everyone else in the world is Not Themself.

* In ''Manga/{{Devilman}} Crybaby'', after Akira Fudo becomes Devilman for the first time, his personality changes from a meek, kind-hearted young man who cries at news of deaths, to a debonair, devil-may-care badass who watches porn in his school's AV room with the volume cranked up without a care in the world.

** Subverted in the episode "Armageddon Game" when representatives of an alien race try to murder O'Brien and Bashir and then edit surveillance footage to make it look as though they died in an accident while they hunt them down. Keiko is suspicious when she notices that the footage shows Miles drinking coffee late in the afternoon, something she says he never does. It turns out she just ''thought'' he didn't.
