* Used in [[{{Vocaloid}} The Story of Evil]] when[[spoiler: [[MeaningfulName Rillianne]], who was a [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen terrible ruler]] switches places with her servant and [[TwinSwitch twin brother]], Allen. A bit unusual in that this is not the beginning of the plot, but rather the dramatic climax of it and that Allen himself organizes the whole thing to save her from an uprizing. Under the Princess' guise he gets captured and promptly [[OffWithHisHead decapitated]] while the Princess successfully escapes. In a later song Rillianne is shown being burdened with regrets over his death, though, and in the finale she becomes a lowly nun in a monastery.]]

* The trope is named for a Mark Twain novel in which StreetUrchin Tom Canty gets mixed up with Prince Edward VI of England.
** An element that rarely get used in other works is that both try to come clean and get it reversed. Of course, even at the crowning ceremony no-one takes the pretender seriously that he isn't really the prince until the real one shows up.
