* A recurring element of ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' lore is Matches Malone, a cover identity Batman assumes occasionally. It consists of Bruce Wayne with a fake mustache, a plaid suit, and a match in his teeth. It's generally proven effective - sometimes lampshaded, sometimes not.

* Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}}'s daughter Rose Wilson (aka Ravager) is an Asian girl with silver hair, a look that isn't exactly common. Comicbook/{{Robin}} points out the absurdity of her using a costumed identity despite allowing her distinctive hair to be clearly seen.

** In [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks older]] Batman comics, TheJoker and the Penguin would sometimes go out in public "disguised" by nothing but a pair of LennonSpecs. It's a toss-up as to whether it's this trope or everyone was just too shit-scared to call the cops anyways.

* Subverted in Creator/DonRosa's story "The Last Lord of El Dorado", in which Flintheart Glomgold follows Scrooge and his nephews with a series of incredibly obvious disguises (including a female waitress and a nun - Glomgold's beard made things even more obvious). When he reveals himself, however, Scrooge [[GenreSavvy mocks him and tells him that he'd known all along it was him]]. (Donald was fooled, though.)

The costume looked identical to his normal Captain America costume except for darker colors and a slightly different chest-insignia. He even threw a shield around which was also had a slight color-change.

The costume would later be worn by the [=USAgent=].
