* ''ComicBook/ScoobyDooTeamUp'': Daphne starts suspecting the superheroes known as [[WesternAnimation/TheImpossibles the Impossibles]] and the singing trio Impossibles are the same people but Fred dismisses her theory because "those would be the '''worst''' secret identities ever".

* Prince Elias during the [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic Universe]] arc "Secret Freedom" goes by the codename "King" while working with the Secret Freedom Fighters. Geoffrey St. John even lampshades it when he discovers his true identity.
-->'''Geoffrey''': Agent "King", huh? Going for "so obvious it's overlooked?"

* Exploiting this trope is one way you can get into {{ComicBook/Doctor Doom}}'s good books. Examples:
** Doom once gave Luke Cage a false commission as part of a bigger gambit, then skipped town before Cage got his fee. So Cage convinces the Thing to loan him one of the FF's vehicles, flies to Latveria, teams up with a group of insurgents, ''storms Castle Doom'', beats up a bunch of guards... and politely requests his $200 fee. Doom bursts into laughter, pays, and asks Cage if he'd consider working for him again.
** Doom treats villain Arcade like a court jester; he's apparently decided that Arcade is amusing enough not to be punished for addressing him as "Doc" or "Vic".

* In ''ComicBook/{{Sandman}}'', Hob Gadling amazes his friends by insisting that mortality is for chumps and he intends to live forever by simply refusing to die. The ballsiness of the InsaneTrollLogic amuses Morpheus enough that he convinces his older sister, [[TheGrimReaper Death]], to make Hob TheAgeless, and arranges to [[PalsWithJesus meet Hob for drinks]] once a century.

* Once in a while ComicBook/TexWiller and his pards have pulled this. Such as the time they needed to go in a town controlled by a gang of criminals who was preparing an ambush just for them... So they went there with a ''stagecoach'', disguised as a Mexican who didn't understand English (Tex), a preacher (Carson, who ''does'' look the part with the right clothes), a businessman (Tiger Jack. A Navajo Indian), and a ''woman'' (Kit Willer, Tex' son), and when the criminals stopped the coach the only reason they were discovered was that one of them tried to kiss Kit (the sheer surrealness of the situation still left the criminals too stunned to stop them).
** Once in a while it's them who fall victim to this. Such as the time Tex' archenemy Mefisto needed help with his overturned coach... And when Tex passed by, ''he asked him for help'' (Tex did not expect Mefisto to do such a thing and failed to check his disguise).

** Neither Diabolik was the one pulling the most outrageous plan, that was Ginko. In "Mocking Diabolik" Ginko needed to escort ten ancient golden statues to the police station for safekeeping while the museum prepared a Diabolik-proof room to expose them, without Diabolik getting them. And Diabolik was spying on him, and he had no idea where the bug was (and, in another example of this trope, Diabolik had bugged ''the last round of Ginko's gun'') So, what did he do? First, he and his men [[spoiler: planted fake hints to indicate a certain mob boss was interested to those statues, then they stole ''those Diabolik's gadgets that had been confiscated after past heists, and '''used them to steal the statues'''.'' After which Ginko 'discovered' the fake hints and started putting pressure on the mob boss, getting Diabolik to surveil him while the Diabolik-proof room was completed and the statues exposed]]. As you can see, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the title of that story was quite justified]].

* One of the reasons nobody can tell that Paperinik is actually DonaldDuck [[ClarkKenting in spite of the only camouflage being a]] DominoMask is that Paperinik is a well-known MasterOfDisguise who has disguised himself as ''Donald Duck'' on multiple occasions.
** A variant of the above is the second story where he faced a villain called ''the'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Master of Disguise]]. In revenge for being unmasked at the end of the first story, the Master of Disguise captured Paperinik, unmasked him on live television... And then, ''two other Paperiniks entered the room and took off the masks, revealing themselves as Gladstone and Fethry, as Donald asked them before before being captured''. End result: the villain got distracted long enough for Donald to free himself and lead his cousins into delivering a righteous beat-up, and everyone was convinced it was a bait from the actual Paperinik who enjoyed the show on TV from his lair.

* ''[[ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard Loki: Agent of Asgard]]'': In issue 1, surrounded by the Avengers and looking decidedly guilty of ''something'', Loki takes his only remaining option. He tells them the absolute truth as to why he's there, namely that he's working for the All-Mother as part of a secret plan to protect Asgard.

** Eva had been arrested, and between the prison being in a swamp with a train as the only way in or out and [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Ginko]]'s surveillance, he had no idea how to break her out before she was sentenced to death and executed. So, what did he do? First, he ''kidnapped a top model'' leaving a wounded witness to make everyone think he had dumped Eva with the goal of getting Ginko to drop the surveillance or, at least, pity judge and jury into giving her a lesser sentence. As Ginko [[ProperlyParanoid still kept up the surveillance]] but Eva had been sentenced to thirty years of jail, Diabolik went for his plan B: distract away Ginko while he caused a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhoid_fever typhoid fever]] outbreak'' in the prison (Eva had recently been inoculated so she was immune) to force the evacuation, knowing that they would put the healthy prisoners in the back and reserved the forward side (that jerked less), and thus Eva would be safe when he ''derailed the train''.
