* In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', it turns out the whole party knew who TheMole was all along, and what looks like you falling into their trap was actually them falling into ''yours''.

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', [[LovableLibby Quinn]] spent four-and-a-half seasons pretending that [[TheSnarkKnight Daria]] was anything but [[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry her sister]], especially to her friends in the Fashion Club. When she finally admits that she and Daria are sisters, [[WithFriendsLikeThese Sandi]], who presumably didn't know, tries making a big deal about it, only for [[TokenGoodTeammate Stacy]] and [[AsianAirhead Tiffany]] to reveal they already knew, but simply never said anything. When you think about it, it actually makes a lot of sense that they would already know--[[CallBack Daria had revealed to pretty much everyone in the first episode that she and Quinn are sisters.]]

** Most of the villain lairs, which are obviously intended to be secret and untraceable by the villains themselves but are easily found by a ten year old boy, Global Justice and/or pretty much anyone the plot wants to know. Particularly notable with Dementor and Drakken, who really push the "secret lair" schtick. In one memorable case, Drakken's lair was found no problem by ''his mother''. Like everything, {{Lampshaded}} - this time by Motor Ed.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' deals with the housemates doing a role-playing exercise to help Xandir tell his parents he is gay. They (pretending to be his parents) initially simply exclaim "Duh!" when he tells them, but he accuses them of not taking it seriously. Thus, the rest of the episode is an extended fantasy in which the characters all take on roles and act out an elaborate story of what might happen when he really tells them, involving running away, prostitution and eventual murder. At the end of the episode he finally comes out to his parents... who simply exclaim "Duh!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', when Peggy finds out about Nancy's years-long affair with John Redcorn, she confesses this discovery to Hank. Hank's more distressed that this is news to Peggy than over the revelation itself. Peggy, in turn, is horrified that everybody seemed to know except her. (The only people who didn't know were Peggy, Dale, and "Dale's" son, Joseph).

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}},'' the team recruits disabled teenagers from the long-term ward of a local hospital. One girl, Collette, had always told everybody that she was hurt in a skiing accident but would be healed up shortly; when she finally admits that her condition is congenital (meaning that morphing [[HealingFactor won't heal it]]), her fellow patients say that they'd already gleaned that from her medical chart.

* It takes several books before Tavi in the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' finds out that his "aunt" Isana is [[FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo actually his mother]], and his father was Gaius Septimus: he's the heir to the throne. Ambassador Varg is a WolfMan who could tell this by smell as soon as he met him. Besides, Tavi could pretend to be haughty and imperious very well.

** Nami asked her sister Nojiko to keep her efforts to buy back their village from the pirate Arlong a secret even after Genzo had banished her from the village for joining Arlong pirates under the mistaken belief that she only wanted to get rich. It turned out that Genzo was unwilling to believe that Nami would join the pirates even with temptations like that, especially after Arlong had killed her mother. He and the other villagers eventually managed to get Nojiko to tell them but decided to keep it a secret from Nami so she could leave them if she wasn't able to complete her goal.
** The citizens of Dressrosa knew all along that the fairies are actually dwarves, and that [[spoiler: Kyros and Rebecca are father and daughter]]. They pretended not to know to protect their secrets, out of respect. [[spoiler: They also know that Luffy didn't really kidnap Rebecca at the end of the arc, but pretend not to so they can run after Luffy and his allies, thus preventing Fujitora from killing them.]]

That delusion lasted up until she met Azi, who put it together in literal minutes of showing up. And to her further annoyance, [[EveryoneCanSeeIt every other Sister already knew as well.]]

* ''Literature/DannyTheChampionOfTheWorld'': After Danny's father is injured during a poaching excursion, Danny wonders what story he is going to tell the doctor. It turns out that the doctor, and pretty much every other authority figure in their village (including the police officer and TheVicar), knows that people are poaching Victor Hazell's pheasants and is either turning a blind eye or having a go at it themselves.
