** This was quite common in the 1960's, with freelancers working for DC Comics taking up assignments for the (at the time) less established Marvel and not wanting to potentially burn their bridge to DC. Among them, George Roussos inked early issues of ''Comics/FantasticFour'' as "George Bell", and ''Comics/{{Superman}}'' co-creator Jerry Siegel wrote a couple of issues as "Joe Carter"

* Daniel Handler has written some rather explicit novels under his own name, and ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' as LemonySnicket-- although the latter also involves an elaborate LiteraryAgentHypothesis played out to some degree both in the books and in RealLife (with Handler presented as Snicket's representative).

* Ruth Rendell wrote as Barbara Vine when intending to write fiction that was darker, more psychological, and less procedural. Unlike many of the other writers on this page, there was no intent to conceal her identity. The 'Barbara Vine' novels are a distinct genre in the Ruth Rendell oeuvre; they are generally narrated from a first person perspective, take place over a longer period of time than her regular novels and chart the adventures of a number of characters, and are much more languidly paced than the 'Rendell' novels. Putting 'writing as Barbara Vine' on a novel is essentially the same as putting 'An Inspector Wexford Novel' on them; it tells the reader exactly what to expect.

* Creator/{{Atari}}, in its early years, set up a second company called Kee Games in order to persuade more regional distributors to sign exclusive contracts, though Kee's output consisted largely of Atari games under alternate names. Atari also released ''VideoGame/SharkJaws'' under the one-time brand of Horror Games, perhaps to shield the company's good name from an amazingly shameless attempt to cash in on the box-office success of ''Film/{{Jaws}}''. Much later, when Atari split into two companies, Atari Games was forced to adopt the Tengen name for console and computer games because it was only allowed to use the Atari trademark for {{Arcade Game}}s.
