* ''Franchise/DragonBall'' ** Throughout his childhood and some of his adult life, Goku had no clue that he transformed into a giant ape during a full moon, which caused the death of his grandfather. He doesn't learn the truth until he fights Vegeta and sees him transform and he's not happy with his friends for locking him out. ** Frieza and his men still have no clue who Future Trunks is even by the time of ''Resurration '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'', Frieze meets present Trunks, but fail to realize that this Trunks isn't the same one who killed him and doesn't understand why he's a child.

* Shinji Ikari, the main character in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', is for the most part is very unaware of the shady going-ons behind the scenes of Nerv, despite the fact that he has a very important post inside the organisation as a HumongousMecha pilot. His friend, Kensuke, is quite shocked to learn this fact, as he finds out that Shinji can neither confirm or refute any of the rumors he hears through his own sources in the organisation, as Shinji honestly knows next to nothing.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Persona}}/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' crossover ''FanFic/PuellaArcanaSomniatorMadoka'', Homura is the one who knows next to nothing about what goes on with Madoka, who holds a [[SummonMagic different type of power called Persona]], made a different contract with the Velvet Room, and is traversing through a strange world in her dreams. [[spoiler:Considering what goes on in the anime, this is very ironic.]]

* In her introductory book, Princess Ida from PiersAnthony's ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' series was constantly trying to find out what her magical talent is, only to have everyone who knew tell her it would be counterproductive for her to know at that point. It turns out that her talent is the Idea, where whatever she thinks of will come true ''as long as the idea originates with someone who doesn't know what her talent is''. As soon as she found that out, she stopped being able to grant her own wishes.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'', nobody bothers to tell Flash Sentry what is really going on or that the human Twilight Sparkle is not the same person as Princess Twilight Sparkle. As a result, he spends most of his screen time confused and heartbroken when the human Twilight avoids him.

* In ''MoulinRouge'', the theatre cast hide Satine's imminent death from tuberculosis so she can clinch a deal with the Duke. This one is notable in that even ''Satine herself'' has this hidden from her (she knows she's sick, but not how bad it is) until Zidler suddenly tells her at literally ''the'' most inopportune moment.
