* In ''[[Film/OceansEleven Ocean's Thirteen]]'', this trope is employed as part of an attempt to ruin Bank's new casino. They sneak into a prestigious reviewer's room while he's out and do all sorts of nasty things to the room, placing bedbugs in the bed, dirtying things, and feeding noxious gases into the vents.

*In a benign example, in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' the anti-contract faction among the Svenjaya contact John and Paul by having one of them (who really is a hotel porter) go up to their hotel room with a welcome basket of fruit. Paul wonders if the porter is planning to wreak havoc once he gets into the room, but decides “he can handle havoc” and lets the fellow in.

** This scene was parodied in ''AustinPowers''. Fails when Oddjob-parody Random Task's shoe-throwing is shown to be a completely ineffective means of fighting.

* ''Literature/CiaphasCain'': In the short story ''The Little Things'', a gang of kidnappers has targeted a young noblewoman and plans to get their hands on her by substituting for the room service waiters. Unfortunately for them, the "noblewoman" was one of Inquisitor Vail's undercover identities, and that room service order was for a romantic dinner between her and Cain. [[{{Understatement}} It didn't go well for them.]]

* ''Film/{{Commando}}''. Matrix has just killed Sully and is searching his room when BadAss villain Cooke arrives outside. Cindy answers the door with her shirt open and a coy smile, claiming she's "Room service" (implying she's an escort). Cooke is suspicious and makes her stand back from the door, but still misses Matrix hiding behind it.

* During a DiscoveryChannel documentary on ([[TheThemeParkVersion actual]]) {{ninja}}, some individuals where asked to act as bodyguards and "protect" a target (prevent his cap from being taken off) and were told that the attacker would strike like a ninja of antiquity would. He disguises as a set maintenance personnel to get through the bodyguards. [[spoiler: Though at first they're reluctant to let him in, but he succeeds in the end]].
* In ''ILoveLucy'', Lucy does this several times on their trip to Hollywood to get close to celebrities.
