* ''{{Webcomic/Erfworld}}'''s Parson seems to understand that taking RefugeInAudacity is the best way to skirt the rules. Uncroaking a dormant volcano is so audacious that it shouldn't be possible, and nobody has even considered trying it before, which means when Parson pulls it off successfully, it catches everyone so far off guard that he turns the tide of a war.

* In TrueMagic, one character is repeatedly mistaken for a "gentleman of the evening."
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' absolutely ''revels'' in this trope.
** In one of the earliest examples, vigilante paleontologists discover living dinosaurs, so they dress as gunslinger banditos while riding velociraptors, thus preventing the authorities from doing anything about them because they refuse to believe the reports.
* Schlock in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' escaped punishment for spying on his commanding officers from the air vents by [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20060906.html being utterly shameless about it]] and exploiting the fact there AintNoRule.
** Tagon [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2001-06-09 shot]] all of his employer's attorney drones, then followed it up with:
-->'''Tagon''': Get as mad as you want, you're going to have a hard time suing me.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Haley passionately complains of the injustice of suspecting her of theft because she is a rogue -- [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0008.html while she is holding the thing she stole]].
** Redcloak in strips [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0832.html 832]] and [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0833.html 833]] basically gets away with [[spoiler: killing Tsukiko]] by being totally up front about it.

* Zexion is into this in ''AnsemRetort''; his stint as governor of Pennsylvania has been marked by, among other things, emails to tell everyone "I'm stealing your tax dollars and there ain't jack you can do!", looking after American interests abroad by chanting "AMERICA! FUCK YEAH!", and leaving an android version of himself sitting on TV shouting random phrases like "Fuck Tibet!" Similarly, his good friend Axel has his entire life and most of his hobbies, such as claiming that he couldn't be responsible for some murders because he was busy murdering some other people at the time.
* Buwaro and Kieri of ''SlightlyDamned'' at one point decide to [[http://www.sdamned.com/2008/01/01112008/ drop their disguises and walk around Riverside City as the angel and demon that they are.]] This ends up being a ''more'' effective way of blending in with the Medians than what they had going: (most) everyone refused to believe an angel and a demon would willingly hang out with each other, so they assumed they were a couple of kids wearing elaborate costumes for some publicity stunt. Hey, it beats being mistaken for a pimp and prostitute.
