For cases where there is a subject within the series that simply cannot be questioned, or else the whole premise will fall apart, it's a case of why they don't JustEatGilligan.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': During an officers' meeting, Chief Bogo announces that the first order of business is to "acknowledge the elephant in the room", and we're lead to believe he's referring to Judy, the first bunny officer on the force. [[BaitAndSwitch He's actually talking about an elephant officer in the room]]; it's her birthday.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ShamanBlues'', the spirits following Gardiasz seem to have this status. They never speak, Witkacy has no idea who they are and why they're following the lord of the afterlife, and the one time he asked, his relations with Gardiasz soured permanently.
