* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'', titular character Jake has to get a legendary magical chalice that unfortunately was mistaken by the {{Muggles}} as an ordinary trophy. Cue a battle between two dragons on stage, and while there is one more GenreSavvy character who realises what's actually going on, he's dismissed by the principal on the belief that the dragons and fire are just pyrotechnics.
** [[spoiler: Although it was revealed that the principal was actually a mermaid, so it was possible she knew and (obviously) didn't want to say anything.]]

* ''Literature/LightThickens'' by Creator/NgaioMarsh is centred around a production of ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}''. A gruesome murder takes place at the end of one of the performances, and has to be covered up this way. It is mentioned later that those of the audience who noticed just thought that [[spoiler:the head was an "awfully good dummy".]]
--> The blood drips onto Seyton’s upturned face. And being well-trained professional actors, they respond, with stricken faces and shaking lips, "Hail, King of Scotland!" The curtain falls.

* The final episode of ''Manga/CatsEye'' revolves around a play about a female thief, with a famous actress portraying the victim. The sisters use the play as an opportunity to drug the actress and replace her valuable diamond with a fake, which goes completely unnoticed because of the show's subject matter. The cops only realize a robbery has occurred after the play is over and the girls have made off with the diamond.

* In the [[TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness]] crossover game ''Midnight Circus,'' the eponymous Carnival is surrounded by a {{Glamour}} Veil designed to hide the [[CircusOfFear true nature of the circus]] from its audience, usually by ensuring that anything unusual or disturbing is dismissed as part of the show. For example, [[MonsterClown Koba's Progressive Klown Show]] usually ends with a spy from a rival clown troupe being discovered, then chased down and eaten by Koba's enslaved werebear - all dismissed as special effects by the Glamour-baffled audience. If the player characters attempt to rescue the spy, the Glamour Veil just weaves them into the show, complete with comedy pratfalls and sad trombone music; the audience buys ''all of it,'' even when Koba's bodyguards open fire on the players with handguns and flamethrowers.

** In the [[VideoGame/Hitman2016 new episodic game]] the tutorial missions are re-enactments of past assassinations performed by ICA staff in a simulated environment. So snapping people's necks, shooting people in the head, murdering someone with an inflatable raft... no-one will bat an eye! [[SubvertedTrope ...up until a point]]. The actors will break character if Agent 47 [[spoiler: 'kills' Jasper Knight with an Ejection Seat malfunction]]. One even calls Agent 47 a 'Crazy Bastard'.

* Ian Curtis of Music/JoyDivision suffered from epilepsy and would frequently have tonic-clonic seizures on stage. These were mistaken for his stage moves by the audience, as Curtis was known for herky-jerky movements on stage.

* In ''VisualNovel/StarCrossedMyth'', the planetarium where the PlayerCharacter works puts on an event for the [[{{Tanabata}} Star Festival]] When a group of fabulously handsome, strangely-dressed men approach the protagonist and one of them makes it rain stardust, onlookers take it as a performance being staged for the event - even the protagonist's coworker Hiyori, who as an employee of the planetarium should know that no such thing was planned.

* During a wrestling show in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', the manager of such uses some Egyptian artifact to turn himself into a humanoid Jackel. Kim, Ron, as well as two of the league's top wrestlers, Steel Toe and Pain King, work together to fight him. All the while the audience is none the wiser. In fact two of the audience members comment on the "special effects" at first but then dismiss the whole thing as "fake".

* The climactic scene in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Shakespeare Code" takes place at the end of a performance of Shakespeare's play "Love's Labours Won", the ending of which was written by the evil aliens to call the rest of their race to take over the world. After the villains are defeated, the audience stands up and applauds. Martha assumes that they think it was all special effects.

** In an unusual variation, Martin knew in advance it would happen, and had the outdoor filming scheduled accordingly.
** In the episode "Bounty", an attempted assassination of Carter appears to be part of a demonstration of the technology she and Dr. Lee bring to a trade show.
*** Probably helped by the fact that they were demonstrating hologram technology. Looks like their original plan was to have "Carter" walk on stage and then wow the audience when she turned out to be a hologram generated from backstage. The sniper fell for it too of course and fired on the hologram which promptly disappeared. Cue the real Carter coming out from backstage holding a working laser gun which she uses to stun the sniper. The audience applauds and it's not hard to see why they would believe it to be part of the demonstration.
