** Future Trunks himself gets a fair bit of this during ''Super'', including not knowing that Goku had came back to life, that Android 18 and Krillin got married, or that Gohan had become a scholar and mostly retired from fighting. Present Trunks also never learned about his Future version until he returned, and initially thought that Future Trunks was his long-lost brother.

** Frieza and his men still have no clue who Future Trunks is even by the time of ''Resurrection 'F'''. When they arrived on Earth, they think he's either dead or retired to some backwater planet since they can't find him anywhere. In the retelling in ''Dragon Ball Super'', Frieza meets present Trunks, but fails to realize that this Trunks isn't the same one who killed him and doesn't understand why he's a child.

** And PlausibleDeniability. An intelligence agency carries out the intentions of their government but without explaining the fine detail of what they're up to (espionage is illegal, after all), so if something goes wrong the government can truthfully claim they didn't know about it.

** Also, Stella tries to defend her marriage to Wes as not just being about him getting a green card from a dying girl. But the fact she had no idea he lived for two years with another woman in London seriously weakens her case.

* The 2018 series ''Life Sentence'' has Stella learning that her supposedly terminal cancer is cured. While at first happy, Stella learns that her family, either to help her recovery or because they thought she was going to die, have long been keeping her in the dark on various things. Her father is broke and about to sell the house; her mother is now sleeping with another woman; her brother is basically a drug dealer; and her sister is having family issues. Stella has to handle this new knowledge affecting her life.
** A big example is when Stella decides to apply for a manager's job and can't find her high school diploma. It turns out that she never actually graduated and her parents forged the diploma she saw, making Stella realize how behind she is with adult life.

* When ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' begins, Laura has two aides, Bernice and Murphy, who are aware that Remington is just a shady guy stepping into the identity Laura created. After they both leave, the duo hire Mildred, who totally believes Steele is the brilliant investigator and Laura just his assistant. Thus, often, Mildred fails to relay messages from one to the other, figuring Steele doesn't need to know about the "underling" and that Laura isn't privy to Steele's work. They finally take her aside to lay it out.
-->'''Mildred''': So, Mr. Steele is the boss but Ms. Holt is the one actually in charge.
-->'''Steele''': Surely, Mildred, having worked for the federal government, this shouldn't be too hard a concept to grasp.
** In the third season, Mildred is heartbroken by nearly botching a case and ready to quit. To cheer her up, Steele finally tells her the truth so she knows the real deal.

* Played for laughs on ''Series/BrooklynNineNine''. To get close to mobster Sheamus Murphy, Jake and Charles decide to target the guy's nephew, Kyle. They figure to befriend him and use that insider knowledge to get some dirt on what Sheamus is up to. However, they soon discover a major flaw to the plan: Kyle is an absolute moron who's been deliberately kept out of the family business because Sheamus knows he can't trust this idiot with anything important.

* Done with secondary characters in ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'': Neville is the only one in Hermione's group of friends who didn't know about Maximilian actually being [[VoluntaryShapeshifting a Boggart]] rather than a human being. When he off-handedly learns it after a whole year of considering himself, Harry and Neville best friends, he... doesn't take it well.
