* Iroquois Pliskin in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' is so ''obviously'' Snake in a different uniform with his hair down that it's [[TheUntwist genuinely shocking]] when he turns out to be Snake in a different uniform with his hair down. WordOfGod is that HideoKojima kept pressuring them to make the disguise more and more transparent, the idea being to take advantage of paranoid gamers expecting his [[GambitPileup twisty]] plots to be more twisty than they actually are.
** Exactly the opposite and a great example of this trope occurs in ''Metal Gear Solid 3'' with [[spoiler: EVA/Tatyana]]. Combed back hair, glasses, and a different set of clothes shouldn't really fool anyone, but instead of relying entirely on it, [[spoiler:she]] also changes [[spoiler:her]] body posture and movement and [[spoiler:her]] entire way of acting.
** [[spoiler:Liquid's disguising himself as Master Miller]] retroactively is this, as not only did he mimick [[spoiler:Miller]] in both [[spoiler:appearance and in voice]], he also changed his [[spoiler:overall demeanor]] to be more similar to how [[spoiler:Miller]] would act. Originally, it was closer to PaperThinDisguise, but the rereleases of the MSX ''VideoGame/MetalGear2'' redid the design for [[spoiler:Miller]] to match his "appearance" in Metal Gear Solid, and his appearance in ''[[VieoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker Peace Walker]]'', ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidGroundZeroes Ground Zeroes]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Phantom Pain]]'' was based on his Metal Gear Solid appearance.

* In ''Film/MaryPoppins'', Creator/DickVanDyke played two roles -- Bert the chimney sweep and Dawes Sr. the banker -- with two totally different costumes and accents. Many people are surprised to find out that Van Dyke also played Dawes Sr., especially since Bert's Cockney accent is infamously inaccurate while Dawes Sr.'s upper-class accent is a lot more convincing.

* ''Series/{{Bones}}'' occasionally does under-cover assignments, which Brennan seems to throw herself into enthusiastically. Notably, in "Double Trouble in the Panhandle" they investigated the death of a pair of conjoined twins at a circus by posing as a knife-throwing act called [[RockyAndBullwinkle Boris and Natasha]].
