Along the way, he repeatedly encounters an old woman who requests his help carrying her things up the mountain, which he refuses because he's in a hurry. When he arrives, it turns out [[BadassGrandma she is The True Master]], but there's no implication that she concealed her identity on purpose. [[YouDidntAsk Robin just never thought to ask.]]

* In ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'', a pagan poet just released from Purgatory introduces himself by explaining how the wisdom of Creator/{{Virgil}} (especially in ''Literature/TheAeneid'') allowed him to appreciate the newly-emerged UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} and convert in secret. TheProtagonist can't stop himself from smiling at this to the poet's confusion; this confusion allows Dante to reveal that the ghost guiding him through the afterlife is "that same Virgil from whom [he] derived the power to sing of men and of the gods."
