* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'', When Master Yo has to retrieve a powerful weapon, he keeps it a secret from Yin and Yang and pretends that he's taking them to an amusement park so that the Night Master would follow them and be thrown off the trail. At the end of the adventure, when the two correctly guess that Yo used them as bait, he offers them a dollar bill to not tell anyone he deliberately endangered children.

It hardly ever works. If they're lucky, though, [[RageAgainstTheMentor the hero won't hate them too much]] when it finally comes out.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Since he wasn't involved in the horrific events of the Eclipse and Guts never spoke of what happened, Rickert had no idea that Griffith had ascended to become a member of the Godhand and had betrayed the entire Band of the Hawk, or that he [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raped Casca to insanity]] and [[ForcedToWatch made Guts watch]]. Thus, when he's reunited with Griffith, reborn into the physical world, on the Hill of Swords, Rickert is initially happy to see him and greets him as an old friend... and then Guts shows up, attacks Griffith in a rage, and tells Rickert what really happened.



* In the ''Manga/ElfenLied'' fic ''FanFic/FamilySticksTogether'', it's stated that Alex's father, [[SuperSoldier Zale]], was deliberately kept away from the prisoners and test subjects in the Diclonius Research Institute so he would believe Kakuzawa's lies that the Diclonii were nothing but savage monsters and killers, with his only contact with the girls being to contain an escapee. He eventually ''did'' discover the truth and [[DefectorFromDecadence turned on the institute]].

* In ''LightNovel/AmagiBrilliantPark'' Seiya is doing almost all he can to help revive the eponymous theme park from near ruin, but it's not until the last few episodes that he finally learns how important it is [[spoiler:since without the park, Latifa will quickly die of a curse.]] When he finally finds out, he begins trying even harder and is clearly desperate, which upsets some other characters until they learn he's finally in on the secret. Failure to tell him until that late almost cost everyone dearly, too, since it forced him to undergo last minute adjustments rather than space out the workload, nearly resulting in the park closing. Thing is, there wasn't really a good reason for them not to tell him in the first place except maybe early on when it could have made him less inclined to help.

* Read enough CthulhuMythos fiction, and you'll be forced to conclude that educated upper-crust Anglo-Saxons are the ''only'' people on Earth who don't have a clue that monsters lurk all around them: ''everybody'' else, from classical civilizations to backwater native tribes to superstitious blue-collar laborers, knows what's going on.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': As revealed in Volume 4, members of the [[WesternTerrorists White Fang]] are able to roam about Blake's hometown of Menagerie freely, because the inhabitants seemingly don't know that the White Fang, led by Adam Taurus, played an instrumental role in the invasion of Vale and the destruction of Beacon Academy, with Blake's parents only finding out when Blake and Sun inform them as such when White Fang representatives of another leader, Sienna Khan, come to visit her father. Said representatives are able to avoid suspicion by claiming that the group led by Adam is a rogue splinter faction and they're trying to apprehend him, which is a lie.

** This seems to be a common theme in ''Star Wars''; see ''{{VideoGame/Knights of the Old Republic}}'' for an even more extreme example - accompanied by an ironic lampshade hanging if [[spoiler:the amnesiac Darth Revan]] tells Carth "you were ''born'' out of the loop."
