* 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.]]

* Olga from ''Webcomic/SisterClaire'' believed her relationship with fellow nun, Jackson, was a well guarded secret. 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.]]
-->'''Jackson:''' That cat has been out of the bag a '''''long''''' time.



%% Well yeah. Then they moved it to the Dugway Proving Ground...

* ''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.

** The best part? Barla Von doesn't know who the Shadow Broker really is, but at that point in the series he's about the ''only'' one. Liara's identity is not only know to Shepard, it's known to the Normandy crew, Cerberus, Admiral Hackett (and presumably Alliance command and their Council allies), the geth, the krogan, the quarians, the ''Reapers''...

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. This was a bit of FridgeBrilliance as Tavi acted like a lord several books before either the reader or himself knew that he was. Ambassador Varg just figured he must have a reason and [[YouDidntAsk didn't say anything about it]]. Tavi's reaction is a bit nonplussed.

* In a ''WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}}'' fancomic by [[Webcomic/SabrinaOnline Eric Schwartz]], Clawhauser catches Nick and Judy together in a station house broom closet . When Judy begs Clawhauser to keep the secret, Clawhauser dismisses her with "Who would I tell?" Turns out, both Nick and Judy had been putting out pheromones broadcasting their mutual interest. Everyone in the station with a sensitive enough nose already knew about them. Then, as if to put a bow on how much of a not-secret their relationship was, Chief Bogo makes the scene and tells Nick and Judy that if they were going to carry on their relationship, keep it out of the station.
