Oh Reed, that sex was wonderful. Was it, hehe— [morphs] Surprise! I was really a Skrull all along, baby! This can be justified in cases where Bob and Alice have never slept together before, but if Bob and Alice are married it strains the audience's Willing Suspension of Disbelief he can't tell the difference between Carol and his wife of five years?
Historically, it was commonly used the other way round: Carol, as the wife that Bob rejected, took the place of Alice, who was desperate to escape Bob's wooing.
Nowadays it's achieved by shapeshifting or some other device by which Carol could plausibly fool Bob into believing that she is Alice. This is one of The Oldest Tricks in the Book and a common origin story for mythological heroes often with a god playing the role of Carol. As a general rule, the farther back you go in time, the more likely it is that the person you're sleeping with isn't who you think they are, though it's seen something of a revival in Soap Operas usually with the added justification that the person being fooled is drunk.
For once, the Law of Inverse Fertility is inverted: If it's Dan impersonating Bob, expect Alice to notice "Bob" has grown a few inches , especially if it's a parody. For cases when Bob suspects something, see Not Right in the Bed. A rather twisted case of Spot the Imposter in both cases.
Basically, a sub-category for Black Comedy Rape. Compare with Bride and Switch and Double Standard: If Bob knows who he's with, but it becomes apparent he's imagining it's someone else, you're looking at Wrong Name Outburst. Not to be confused with a Trick Bed.

In a late chapter of Blood Alone , Higure ties up and gags Misaki and then pretends to be her in order to get Kuroe to make love to him. Thankfully, Koroe isn't into little kids, so the rape attempt fails regardless..
Hinata very nearly pulls this one on Shoei, by pretending to be his girlfriend Mio in Desire Climax.

Ballads In the Child Ballad "Gil Brenton", the heroine sends her maid to her wedding bed to hide that she is not a virgin and is pregnant. The groom discovers this. His mother investigates and discovers that the bride was in fact a woman the groom had dallied with earlier, and so informs her son without actually adding "You idiot.
At one point, Xavin tried appearing as Nico because she thought that this was what Karolina really wanted and that it would help Karolina deal with her emotions. It did not work; Karolina thought it was "some kind of sick test". Xavin, not being from around here, is somewhat baffled. Lemurian supervillainess Lyra tricked Namor into sleeping with her by disguising herself as Susan Richards. In Fantastic Four , a Skrull secret agent named Lyja the Lazerfist fooled Johnny into first sleeping with and later marrying her by posing as the Thing's ex-girlfriend, Alicia Masters.
The marriage lasted years. Also from Marvel, Hercules , as part of a Zany Scheme involving him pretending to be Thor, ended up sleeping with the queen of the Dark Elves. However, it's clear that Alflyse had sex with him because she was incredibly attracted to him and his macho mannerisms, rather than because he was posing as Thor.
It's also not entirely clear whether or not she already knew he wasn't Thor and was just playing along—she certainly doesn't seem at all upset when the truth comes out, and happily sleeps with him again. One of his enemies, the Chameleon, impersonated Spidey and slept with his roommate. Somewhat unusual in that this is being played up as an inconvenience to Peter , and very unusual in that a very vocal segment of the fanbase has been loudly angry about that being an unacceptable use of a Spider-Man comic.
In a different Spidey comic written well before this, the Chameleon attempted to do this to Mary Jane as in the above case he was disguised as Peter , only to be defied. When he kisses her, she realizes it isn't him with an extra spewing of information Peter should have known to be false to make sure , and then proceeded to beat him senseless with a baseball bat. She felt something was off because Peter wasn't himself plus they were no longer together and Doc Oc gave up his attempts.
He tried again later with another woman, Anna Maria, who had no clue about anything. When Peter got back his body and let her in on everything, she was quite stunned by what had gone on. The second Kraven the Hunter, Alyosha, had slept with Calypso—and only told her he wasn't Sergei while mocking her in the afterglow. This was a large factor in them subsequently breaking up.

Typhoid Mary pulls this on Deadpool by disguising herself as Siryn. He does not take it well. In X-Factor , Multiple Man awakens one morning to find that one of his dupes got out accidentally and has been, uhm, enjoying himself. Later, Siryn and M separately tell him how wonderful the night before was, indicating that he slept with one while the dupe got with the other, pretending to be him.
It later turns out they both slept with dupes, and that a dupe managed to get Siryn pregnant. Sort of a borderline example; no one was tricking anyone else. Jamie and his dupes tend to get confused about who did what, since they're born with all his memories, and when he reabsorbs them, he remembers what they did as if he himself did it.
That hadn't even been the first time Siryn had slept with a duplicate of Jamie without realizing it. Seeing how mad she had gotten when he told her what had happened, the first time around, it's kind of frustrating that she fell for the exact same "trick" a second time. Mystique does this a lot, usually For the Evulz: She created a new identity in X-Men as a student known as Foxx, in order to seduce Gambit and break him and Rogue up.
Later, when Gambit realizes who she is, she tries to seduce him again by taking Rogue's form and telling him that it wouldn't be cheating if they had sex while she appeared as Rogue. Mystique is fond of this trope. In a Nightcrawler backstory, Mystique shapeshifts into a frigid maid to sleep with the driver and convinces him to sneak into the castle later that night and asks him to wake her up with sex He's fired, the maid is mentally scarred, and Raven thinks it's all hilarious.
Another occasion had Mystique testing out her newly upgraded powers by seducing Wolverine in the form of his ninja ex Yukio. On a battlefield while surrounded by dead ninja.

He posed as Rogue to invite Gambit over for a G-Rated Sex encounter, but when Gambit stumbled on the real, sleeping Rogue, as Morph intended he didn't get any farther than stealing a kiss before all chaos literally broke loose. Anton Arcane, Swamp Thing 's primary nemesis, famously did this to Abby, his own niece, by possessing the body of her husband.
That isn't even the worst thing he's done to her. In the second issue of the relaunch of Voodoo , the title female character shapeshifts into the male partner of Agent Fallon, whom Fallon is sleeping with and who Voodoo has just killed. Voodoo then goes back to Fallon's hotel room and sleeps with her, before the truth comes out the next morning.
Though it is never described as 'rape,' and Fallon is more angry over the death of her lover, in issue 8, when Voodoo tries to claim that they shared a legitimate emotional connection, Fallon is quick to point out that she does not love Voodoo at all, and that was simply the bond that she had with her lover. Voodoo admits that, yes, it was meaningless. She then kills Fallon. Cilla disguises herself as his student to have sex with Blade , but he doesn't do the deed willingly and there were other forces involved.

Sadly, CrossGen tanked, canceled, and was bought out by Disney before the results of this planned or unplanned came to light, and neither character returns in the new series. A variation occurs in Bill Willingham 's Elementals comic. In the end, she simply reveals herself on a nice quiet outing and leaves Morningstar emotionally devastated enough to almost drive her to suicide, as well as embarrassingly pregnant with some kind of shapeshifting offspring.
Though, in both an Early-Bird Cameo and a subversion , an earlier issue set thousands of years in the future shows Morningstar and the shapeshifter in a committed, lesbian relationship by that point. Empowered has a few examples. The ultimate example, where Ninjette, when she was still with her ninja clan, took an infiltration mission than included consummating another ninja's marriage In-universe she's considered the ultimate Master of Disguise for this, but she mentions at one point that she's not exactly proud of it.
Also of note, Ninjette spends 3 pages in an imagine spot impersonating Emp in bed with Thugboy.
