* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' every mask you can wear. Somehow people believe you are a female, a fishman or a large earth man because of it. No one seems to be able to notice you are 1/4 the size of any of them.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', you can buy homemade monster disguise masks from a special merchant obsessed with monsters. They mostly look like button-eyed sockpuppets, but they're still enough to fool members of the species that each mask matches.

** In fact, it's a bit of a RunningGag amongst the Tales Fandom - one of the DVD extras featured scenes in skit format wherein Judas is onscreen, only for Stahn to come over and say "Hi Leon", and Leon pointed out he wasn't Leon but Judas.

* In ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', the game is about Sonic meeting with himself from the Genesis/Mega Drive era, originally Sonic was shorter, had shorter legs, black eyes and was pudgy, but in the 1998 game Sonic Adventure, he was redesigned being taller and having longer legs, green eyes and was more slim, all other characters had similar changes, and while Sonic and everyone else talks all the time, Classic Sonic in this game is silent, both versions of Sonic keep appearing all the time, but all of Sonic's friends don't seem to notice much difference between the two, even both Sonics don't notice when they both look at each other through a glass and think they're looking at a mirror.

* ''VideoGame/SNKGalsFighters'' has "Miss X", who is essentially the {{Badass}} Iori Yagami in a sailor uniform and a bandit's mask. Predictably, no one in the rest of the all-female cast falls for it, and all of them point it out immediately. Also falls under CreepyCrossdresser and RuleSixtyThree. [[LaserGuidedKarma This bits him in the ass in Yuki's ending where he becomes a girl.]]

*** On an unrealated note, Mario can also use the W Badge to "disguise" himself as Wario, or use both the W Badge and L Badge at the same time to "disguise" himself as Waluigi. Neither effect has any practical use (there's no quest that requires either). In fact, you can only get the W Badge from Charlieton ([[MeaningfulName note the name]]), a merchant who sells a mixed bag of items (most are overpriced junk, but he does have a few useful things).

** Downplayed at first in ''Sun and Moon'', the Masked Royal is a masked wrestler-slash-Pokemon trainer who you encounter first at the Battle Dome on Royal Avenue. The way he looks, you would absolutely not mistake him for Professor Kukui... at least, until he opens his mouth. One of the dialogue options during this first encounter is "Professor?", just to lampshade how absurd this is after the fact.

** RED Soldier also routinely sneaks into Gray Mann's base wearing [[http://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/thumb/f/f8/The_Tin_Soldier.png/198px-The_Tin_Soldier.png a "robot" halloween costume]] consisting of a cardboard box, two shoeboxes, and some dryer hoses. He doesn't even bother swapping his bright RED army fatigues for Grey ones. Hilariously, [[NotSoAboveItAll Gray himself]] doesn't notice the badly-disguised human either.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': After your Protagonist [[FakingTheDead fakes his death]] partway through the story to save himself from murder attempts by TheConspiracy, he hides his identity while out in public by... [[InTheHood wearing a hoodie]]. That doesn't even cover the front of his face.

* The disguise used by ''FreddyPharkasFrontierPharmacist'' in the last act consists of a change of clothes, a neckerchief (which is actually worn around the neck), and a silver ear. Nobody realizes that the man with the silver ear is actually the one-eared pharmacist, up until the BigBad captures him and removes the fake ear.
