Up for Grabs. (nee But He Sounds Handsome) Needs a Better Title. Character A, while in disguise or otherwise not recognisable as Character A, uses the opportunity to compliment himself, usually with some formulation of the words "No, I have no idea who this Mr Character A is, but he sounds really handsome" (but that's not the important bit). It's been YKTTW'd about eleventy billion times (I think I remember one of them being "Superman Compliments Clark Kent" or something), but bugger me if it's ever been launched. Disguise Trope.
