Perhaps you need to smuggle some recognizable people into a base, or smuggle some friends out of a hostile situation. Perhaps the two of you have just been caught by your enemies, and are trying a bluff. Time for the TrojanPrisoner trick.

-->'''Guard:''' (Raises his weapon, pointing it at Preed) You're lying! He's not a slave and you're not traders. He doesn't carry himself like a slave! Look at the way he stands... probably ex-military. Akrennian traders always threaten before they ask a favor, it's tradition. (to Stith) And YOUR robes are made out of bedspreads!\\

In the other version, the fake guard is someone the enemy thinks is on their side, e.g TheMole, [[HeelFaceTurn a reformed villain]], or a LoveableRogue. They swagger into the enemy camp, show off their captive, then surreptitiously help them escape, while doing a little espionage on the side. The fake guard doesn't always bother telling the hero the plan in advance either; the act is much more convincing [[EnforcedMethodActing if the hero thinks it's real.]]
