* During the physical exam episode of ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'', Tamaki disguises himself as Haruhi, so nobody finds out he's really a she. His disguise consists of...putting on a wig. Everyone see's through it immediately.

* ''Anime/SamuraiPizzaCats'' plays it even more straight than Sailor Moon. The Cats in question go through an overly long and elaborate transformation sequence where the only things that are changed are some pieces of their street getup with something more combat capable. Made all the worst in that their departures after their change are publicly broadcast from the pizza place that has a giant gun that shoots them out and the fact that they still call each other by their full names in combat. Yet no one in the series clues in unless they're a part of the "secret" conspiracy. Granted it's an over the top parody but not a single person catches on that the Speedy Cerviche fired from the giant gun and the Speedy Cerviche that runs around delivering pizzas from the same place are the same.

* [[Manga/PokemonAdventures Pokémon Adventures]] has Looker do this late in the Black and White arc, donning a pair of glasses with a fake nose while claiming to be named "Lou Karr" ("Handa Samuro" in the Japanese version) as he participates in the Unova League.

** In one episode Serena disguises herself as Ash because a one shot character of the day is demanding a challenge when Ash is feverish and won't go away. The disguise consists entirely of wearing his clothes and attempting to hide Serena's hair under his hat (which works, but mostly because of her newer shorter hairstyle, the early season Serena could never have pulled this off). It still somehow fools the character of the day, even though he'd literally been talking to Serena a minute prior so he failed to recognize the same girl who left and came back a minute later in different clothing, and even Team Rocket is initially fooled, but they eventually figure it out. Clemont and Bonnie however, instantly can tell it's her, although she quickly gets them to keep up the ruse. To be fair though, a big part of the disguise is simply the demure Serena pulling off a pretty spot on impression of Ash's louder dynamic personality.

** Subverted in another episode where Team Rocket decides to ''help'' the protagonists. They don their usual style of disguise, help them and then go on their merry way believing they fooled them...then Misty says goodbye by shouting "Thanks, Team Rocket!" Ironically, [[EarlyInstalmentWeirdness that was their first attempt]]. Ironically they were disguised fairly well there.

* Koro-sensei from ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'', being a giant octopus-like super creature, dons a fake nose, wig and gloves (and also changes his skin color) to pass off as a human. It works.

** In ''Stardust Crusaders'', [[MonsterOfTheWeek STAND-user of the week]] Rubber Soul uses his STAND YELLOW TEMPERANCE to disguise himself as Kakyoin and infiltrate the main cast. Unfortunately, while YELLOW TEMPERANCE lets him look the part, he does a horrible job playing it. Among other things, he takes a cherry from Jotaro's ice cream [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext and rolls it around on his tongue seductively]], something that Jotaro (and the viewers) know [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness is completely out-of-character for Kakyoin]]. At least until the real Kakyoin [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments does the exact same thing]] after reuniting with Jotaro.
