Usually used as comic relief, thinly veiled disguises are so bad at hiding the identity of someone that even a blind man could see through them. Often used by the bad guy, this disguise usually consists of a fake beard, moustache or a mask. What makes thinly veiled disguises so silly and dumb is that everybody except you, the player, believes in them. A popular modern example is Team Fortress 2's Spy class. When the Spy is disguised, members of the other team see him as a perfect duplicate of whatever class he has disguised himself as. Members of the Spy's team can see that his disguises are actually incredibly flimsy, consisting entirely of a paper mask over his face with a picture of the head of the chosen class drawn on it.
