Just to twist the knife further, the winner didn't even enter the contest and is genuinely confused about winning.

** Same thing happens in ''All-Star Batman'' #11, where the Penguin and his cohorts chide Batman for his supposedly subpar Bruce Wayne "disguise."

* Happens on ''Series/RupaulsDragRace'' in the Season 9 premier, which featured Music/LadyGaga as the guest judge. She walked in with the other queens as they made their grand entrance, causing them to think she was just a really good CelebrityImpersonator (as one queen remarked, "I see who the Derrick Berry[[note]]A renown Music/BritneySpears impersonator who was a contestant in the previous season[[/note]] of the season is"). For added laughs, Gaga even appeared in the ConfessionCam in boy-drag as "Ronnie". Needless to say, when she revealed herself to be the real thing, the queens ''completely lost their shit''.

* Creator/MarilynMonroe was walking down the street with an interviewer. No one was noticing her, and the reporter was confused by this. She then said, "Want to see ''her''?". She changed the way she walked and gestured, and suddenly people started noticing her. This makes sense since body language and posture can make a huge difference in perception.

* In ''Gwenpool Holiday Special: Merry Mixup'', Main/{{Deadpool}} stumbles upon a Halloween "Deadpool Costume Contest" full of pretend-Deadpools of varying believability. Predictably, he's mistaken for a poor impersonator. The contest is also hosted by Main/SquirrelGirl, who's deliberately pretending to be dressed up as herself, and there's a guy dressed up as Leather Boy (the guy who killed Squirrel Girl's first sidekick, Monkey Joe) only to turn out to be the real deal (and attending so he can off her current sidekick, Tippy Toe, because he's frankly completely crazy). She's convinced that Deadpool's the real deal after he saves Tippy Toe, but since it wouldn't be fair to the impersonators who put in actual effort in their costumes, she gives him a "Minimum Effort" participation badge as reward instead.
