* Research labs sometimes do this - there could be a lab that works on a highly dangerous virus in your city, located in an old building decorated with little fanfare, [[ParanoiaFuel and you would never know.]]

* [[NightmareFuel The most successful serial killers tend to be amazingly talented at doing this]]. If you're curious about this (and have a strong stomach), go to Youtube and watch a video of somebody like Gacy or Dahmer being interviewed, and the most striking thing you'll notice about them is how dull and ordinary they seem, and how hard it would be to pick them out in a crowd.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', this is Ren's Semblance. With a little bit of concentration, he can make himself or someone else entirely invisible to the [[EmotionEater Grimm]], despite them being right out in the open and visible to normal people.

* The ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' HomeBase is Mount Justice, the former base of the Justice League until it was exposed to the world. [[RefugeInAudacity They gave the black ops team the base that everyone knows about.]] Since the team uses teleportation devices to enter and leave and Mount Justice has a self-contained power source, from the outside there's nothing to suggest it's been reactivated and thus it takes awhile before any villains find out.

Building a whole new base from scratch without anybody noticing would've been much harder to pull off.

** ''The Literature/{{Foundation}} Trilogy'' ends with the (First) Foundation hunting for the Second Foundation, and... you guessed it, it was right under their noses. (Although [[spoiler: not the way that they think]].)

* In the episode "Shiver and Shake, That Demon's a Snake" of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndScrappyDoo'', a key is found to a secret cache hidden inside a ship. It turns out the keyhole was out in the open all this time--it's part of the lock-shaped logo emblazoned on the side of the ship (how did nobody ever notice that the keyhole was hollow is left as an exercise to the reader.)

* Used in the ''{{Mistborn}}'' series. In the second book, the main characters trying to establish a stable, non-despotic government learn that it has been infiltrated by a shapeshifter. [[spoiler: TheMole finally turns out to be not the butler or TheBigGuy or anyone else the viewpoint characters considered, but the shapeshifter on ''their own'' team.]]

* In ''Fanfic/BlackSky'', George Weasley disappears from Hogwarts after his twin's petrification, and the staff and students wonder where did he go. Immediately following his vanishing, a new student came from nowhere, but everyone knows that George Weasley is a flamboyant prankster and a staunch Gryffindor and as much would never assume the persona of Jerry Prewett, the quiet Slytherin well-accepted by the Snake Pit. Everyone's wrong.
