Disguises are a vital tool required by Irken Invaders so that their true identities are not exposed to the inhabitants of the planet they are assigned to conquer.

They are each given a special piece of cutting-edge technology from which they can choose a disguise based on what the inhabitants of their assigned planet consider "normal". However, almost all Irkens choose awful disguises, despite having a handful of excellent options to choose from. Like their Irken masters, SIR Units also require disguises; most creatures would become suspicious if they caught sight of Irken technology on their planet, since most beings in the Invader Zim universe are, consequently, aware of the Irken race's mission of galactic conquest.

Zim's Disguises

Main article: Zim's Disguises

Zim first disguised himself as a human boy, and attended Skool, where he hoped to learn about Earth's weaknesses. Zim's human child disguise consists of two contact lenses to make his eyes appear human, and a black wig to cover his antennae. He manages to pass himself off as a human by claiming to have a skin condition.

He also has other disguises seen through the course of the series, such as an old man disguise, a Santa suit, an Easter Platypus costume, a fat woman suit, a bear suit, a "Baby Inspector" uniform, a rarely-used "Human" suit, and a clown disguise that he used only once in Nubs of Doom.

GIR's Disguises

Dog Disguise

Girdog

GIR's dog disguise

GIR's main disguise is a light green dog suit, with a vertical stitch stretching down the face, a square red tongue, an oversized zipper, and black paws. The suit can also be put and taken off like a hoodie. However, he acts nothing like a dog, walking on two legs and even speaking in front of humans.

However, because almost all humans are oblivious to these hints, they do not notice that GIR is not a real dog. On the contrary, his disguise, and its inherent cuteness, seems to gain the positive attention of teenage girls, as seen in Attack of the Saucer Morons.

Human Boy Disguise

GIR's child disguise in The Most Horrible X-mas Ever

GIR also has a little brother disguise, which was only used in Door to Door and The Most Horrible X-Mas Ever. It is poorly made, the head being noticeably large with several patches and stiches. Unlike GIR's dog suit, it shows GIR's real eyes, which are seen through the suit's mouth.

Elf Disguise

During the Most Horrible X-Mas Ever, GIR donned an Elf suit for a few moments, wearing a green Santa hat, elf ears, a vertically striped suit and a vest over his regular dog suit.

Invader Flobee's Disguise

Invader Flobee in his "rock people" disguise

Invader Flobee, assigned to an unnamed planet of stupid-looking rock creatures, wore a terrible disguise with rocks strapped to his body. However, it still fooled the idiotic rock people.

Invader Slacks' Disguise

Invader Slacks, assigned to the planet Boodie Nen, home of the Large Nostril People, wore a disguise worse than Zim and Flobee's: a huge fake nose attached to his face.

Tak's Disguise

Tak's human disguise

Something of an anomaly among her Invader peers, Tak takes a different path when it comes to disguise; rather than a physical disguise, she used a hologram that is presumably projected from an implant in her right temple. It is almost completely perfect; the only problem is that it does not mask that she only has three fingers. Her disguise somewhat resembles Nny from JTHM

MiMi's Disguise

Mimi 1

MiMi's disguise

Tak's SIR Unit, MiMi, is disguised as a black cat with red eyes. The ears are gray and striped. She is also disguised using a hologram.

Unseen Disguises

There are many other Invaders whose disguises have not been seen.

Invader Tenn, assigned to the planet Meekrob, would have needed an excellent disguise, as the Meekrob are floating beings of pure energy, and sworn enemies of the Irken Empire.

Invader Skoodge, assigned to the planet Blorch, home of the Slaughtering Rat People, may have not have needed a disguise, as the rat people are probably not sapient, though they are extremely vicious creatures. Surprisingly, Skoodge not only conquered these hideous creatures, but was the first Invader to successfully conquer a planet during Operation Impending Doom II.

Invader Larb was assigned to the planet Vort, home of the Universe's Most Comfortable Couch. The Vortians are an extremely intelligent race of alien scientists, who created The Massive, and were once allies of the Irken Empire, until Zim created an energy absorbing blob that devoured Tallest Miyuki and later Tallest Spork on Vort Research Station 9. Because of the Vortians' intelligence, Larb and his SIR Unit would have needed a brilliant disguise like Tak's, or they would have seen through him.
