* Kakashi in ''FanFic/FromHisExcerpts'' by Phoenyxx. Kakashi speaks fluent English, but hides it from the professors, resulting in little gems like these:
-> "Squid…Like…No magic."
-> Oh. Professor Flitwick chuckled lightly, "I believe the correct term is squib."
->"Yes, squid. It is what I say."

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7973137/4/Take-No-Umbridge-I-As-Umbridge-Sees-it Take No Umbridge]]'', Trelawny's "side-show fortune teller" mannerisms aren't just an act, but one required to ace the Divination practical.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Time-traveller Shinji goes out of his way to act ''completely'' inept in his first combat simulation (and does such a good job of it that the staff nicknamed him "Godzilla''), then asks for a week of training combat training so he can have a more believable explanation for his piloting skills.

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Shinji pretended he was dumber and more ignorant than he was so nobody figured out what he is -a master manipulator with psychich powers- or what he really knows. Later Rei and Asuka make the same thing, advised by him.

* In ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', the four all pretend to be naïve, useless fools when they first start journeying with the Hunter, because they take a massive dislike to him the moment he enters the scene. Their intent is to gradually reveal their power as they travel so they can humiliate him. This turns out not to be the best idea they ever had.

** She is TheDitz in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]], but shows that she is actually pretty smart in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]], especially as it goes on and the burdens of leadership take their toll. Venus can be considered another case as well, since it is hinted that she speaks fluent English, a language that is just as hard for the Japanese to learn as their own language is for native English speakers. (They're in completely different language families, so have no common baselines).

* In the third arc of the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series, Beej notes privately to himself that he ''enjoys'' persuading others that he's incredibly dim, as it leads them to underestimate him. He's actually very intelligent, coming up with several clever ideas throughout the series, but he tries to keep it from everyone except those closest to him.



* Cordelia in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9663877/1/And-Another-Thing-I-Hate-About-You And Another Thing I Hate About You]]'' is only of the only people to notice Anya is doing this. As she puts it, Anya couldn't have interacted with humans for over a thousand years and trick them into making wishes if she really had NoSocialSkills. Anya admits she just likes [[{{Troll}} messing with the Scoobies]]

** Jean-Paul generally maintains a harmless CampGay demeanour. He's also capable of almost absently pulling a SherlockScan on someone he barely knows and when he gets angry, he gets cold, calm and all the GratuitousFrench disappears.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8315978/1/Escape Escape]]'' shows that the hospital staff looking after Murdock know full well his friends are breaking him out each time they do so. They simply allow it because Murdock's not a danger to others and being with his friends improves his moods. Of course, there's also the betting pool they have going on how he'll be broken out each time.

* A few fanfic authors like to play with the idea that Richard Moore is aware of what Conan is doing, or faking being asleep. Has a basis in the simple fact that being injected countless times with the same sleeping drug will eventually result in the body resisting it.
