It does not end well for you if you get hired and the company finds out you stole a piece in your portfolio and/or do not have the skills to do the job. And if all your stuff is of similar quality except the badass piece that looks nothing like any of your other work, they might ask if you have other work like that. People most definitely do steal stuff for their portfolio though, just like people lie on their resumes.


Also, 'here, look at this list of projects I worked on/created myself" is how plenty of coders get hired. Or you might be asked questions about how something works, or what you'd do if you encountered a type of problem, which is like a portfolio of what you know. At the end of the day, it's the same intent, it's just that there's different ways of demonstrating that you have the required skills.
