* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': When they return to the past, Shinji wants to tell Misato everything, but Asuka argues that she'll not believe them or she'll believe them but she'll get too worried or cautious, so they keep their time-travelling status from her for a while.
-->"What about Misato?" he carefully tried again eventually. "We could tell her at least."\\
But Asuka shook her head before he even finished formulating his idea. "She already cares more for us than it's good for someone in her position," she mumbled. "If she were to know what we're going to endure in the upcoming fights, she might try to find some way to keep us out of them or at least somewhat safe, which would most likely just make them end up for the worse."

* In the ''Manga/LoveHina'' fanfic ''Fanfic/ForHisOwnSake'' this trope is deconstructed brutally. Since Keitaro being maintained ignorant about [[spoiler:the identity of his 'promise' girl]] was the thin tread that kept the plot of the original series going and, in this fic, the hope that the ResetButton could be pressed at some moment, the minute he gets in the loop about the spoilered point is the moment when he definitely decides to step away from the situation ASAP, and specially, from the specific people who locked him out knowingly on the first place. What makes it worse is that the person who got him in the loop was the same one who benefited the most of him being locked out, and only confessed in the misguided belief that once he knew the truth he would feel thankful (instead of feeling absolutely betrayed as RealityEnsues.)

** Speaking of Vice Presidents, immediately after the JFK assassination, security agents surrounded Lyndon Johnson and rushed him to a secret room in the hospital, fearing that someone might attempt to kill him too. The effect of this was that virtually every member of the presidential staff in Dallas knew that JFK was dead, and thus that Johnson was now President, before Johnson himself did.
