* PlayedForLaughts in ''Manga/PleaseTellMeGalkoChan''. Chapter 10/ the ''Is it true that there's a psychological test that evaluates how you have sex?'' skit in episode 5 depends on this trope. The boys and the viewers knows how to interpret the girls' answer to an seemingly innocent question as their sexual practice preferences, but the girls never know about that fact.

* From the very beginning of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' the audience is aware that Hayate is the Master of the Book of Darkness. This is used as a joke in episode 6 when Nanoha and Yunno discuss what type of person the master might be, Nanoha even wonders if it's someone their age (which Yuuno dismisses). She then receives a text from Suzuka, who want's to introduce her to Hayate.

As far as the kid in question is concerned, she's the daughter of the people who raised her. The people who conceived her are another matter.
* ''Fanfic/BetterOffNotKnowing'' opens with a twelve-year-old schoolgirl reading a newspaper article about the events of the Book 3 finale. While the narrative gradually [[TheReveal reveals]] to the ''reader'' that the girl is [[spoiler:the daughter of the now-incarcerated ArcVillain [[UnholyMatrimony and]] the now-deceased [[TheBrute Brute]]]], she herself is [[HappilyAdopted blithely unaware]].

* When Lulu and Wakka join Zuke's pilgrimage in ''Webcomic/{{Guardian}}'', they console themselves with the knowledge that Yuna will be safe and sound on Besaid. Naturally, Sin attacks there while they're having a fairly quiet journey.

* TamoraPierce uses a very gentle, but rather sad, type of dramatic irony in ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall''. The heroine, Keladry, develops a crush on her best friend Neal, that he remains totally oblivious to her. ''He'' develops a crush on a noble lady... and anxiously asks Kel if she approves of the lady in question, since he values her opinion as a friend.[[note]]His feelings for the lady in question go nowhere, and Kel discovers quite to her surprise that she's outgrown her feelings for him in the next book. They remain best friends, and he marries her closest friend from the Yamani Islands, so it all ends happily.[[/note]]

** Another one: Jarl Laila Law-Giver ''ensures you'' that her associate, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Maven Black-Briar,]] is cracking down on the {{Thieves Guild}}'s presence in Riften. It doesn't take you three seconds of playing the Thieves' Guild questline for you to realize that Maven is the single biggest sponsor of the Thieves' Guild's activities.

** Case 3 of ''Investigations 2'' takes this up even further, you get to play as Gregory Edgeworth during his last case, going up against Manfred von Karma. By now, most players will know [[spoiler: [[DoomedByCanon just how this ends...]]]] It's made all the worst by the fact Gregory realizes von Karma is a monster the moment he meets him, [[spoiler: she just doesn't realize how much...]] Similar to the 4th game's example above, the final deduction you have to make in the past segment is one the player ''knows'' will have horrible consequences, but the game won't continue until you present it. In case it wasn't obvious by now, it's [[spoiler: "von Karma forged the autopsy report."]] And since von Karma still has his perfect record by the time of 1-4, you know Gregory won't be able to get the defendant cleared, and that the real killer will get away with it. [[spoiler: Fortunately, Miles manages to resolve everything when the case is re-opened in the present day.]]

* In the ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Hammered", JerkAss assistant district attorney Sonya Paxton works a case involving a man suffering from alcoholism who, in an alcohol-induced psychosis, beats a woman he met at a bar to death. Throughout the case, Paxton argues that alcoholism is not a disease and that the defendant couldn't use alcoholism to justify the crime. One major screw-up that nearly costs her the case later, it turns out Paxton is quite the HardDrinkingPartyGirl herself: the following day, Paxton arrives to court late, having been in a fender-bender, and drunk enough to register .082 on a breathalyzer, thus losing the case due to a mistrial and destroying her career in the process.
