** This trope is outright exploited by the Founders in ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'': One reveals himself to [[TheCaptain Sisko]] to gleefuly reveal that there are only three Founder infiltrators on the ''entire'' planet Earth, center of TheFederation, and look what they've accomplished! [[spoiler: In fear of the possibility of Founder infiltrators amongst them, Earth declares martial law, and a series of events nearly leads to an outright military coup of the civilian government, and two Starfleet ships [[FriendOrFoe firing on each other]].]]

* ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' and its parent, ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' have the Zentraedi, a race of giants who later reveal they can "micronize" to become our size. They send a team of spies into the SDF-1, which backfires horribly for their PlanetOfHats culture.

** ''{{Transformers}}'' in general is clearly in the same spirit. While most Transformers disguise themselves as vehicles rather than people,, the principle is the same... Any car on the road or plane in the sky could be a robot in disguise. One of them could be in your driveway ''right now''. And that's just the rank and file; it's been shown that they've branched out and there are Transformers who are capable of becoming all sorts of things you might have ''insude'' the house as well, like a camera, a microscope, a wristwatch, or a computer not terribly different from the one you're looking at right now. That monitor you're staring into? It could be ''staring back''.

* ''[[VideoGame/TheThing The Thing 2002]]'' has this as a gameplay mechanic. By using a syringe and a chemical that reacts to blood by releasing heat, you can test your party members for infection. If the syringe changes from red to brown, they're A-O-K, but if the syringe breaks, fry him, he's an alien, and mutating into a beastie as we speak.

* This has always been the approach of the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Skrulls]], the antagonistic alien race found in MarvelComics, but most of all in the SecretInvasion CrisisCrossover.
