* The monks in ''Manga/ShikabaneHime'' go to considerable lengths to hide the existence of Shikabane, apparently to prevent {{muggles}} being hurt in the crossfire.

* The biggest difference between the world of {{Creator/TCampbell}}'s ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'' and that of ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'', ''Webcomic/RipAndTeri'', and ''Cool Cat Studio'' is that the fantastic elements of the latter (only seen in ''Cool Cat Studio'') are still unknown to the general public. Occasionally, versions of characters from ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'' are seen in ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'', never having been caught up in the supernatural weirdness (Rikk is a still-awkward grad student, Di in a formal private school, Meighan a Hollywood talent scout), and [[ChurchMilitant Charlotte]] turns up in ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'' as a DarkMagicalGirl.

* In the first ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' film (in contrast with the original comicbooks) the existence of the supernatural is a carefully-guarded secret. As far as the public knows, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense does not exist, Hellboy is just an urban myth, and [[{{Ghostapo}} Hitler died in 1948]]. Then in the sequel, [[spoiler:[[TheUnmasquedWorld Hellboy goes public]].]]

cut duplicate example
* In Creator/LJagiLamplighter's ''Literature/RachelGriffin'', the Wise hide from the Unwary. It takes one of the protagonists to ask the obvious question: if the World of the Wise uses obscurations and Laser-Guided Amnesia to hide from the mundane world, what protects the same thing from happening to them? Motives are not deeply investigated; however, there are clues that the current state of affairs -- and history -- is being forcibly held in place by a more powerful group of beings, so it may just be that ''they'' want it that way.

Added DiffLines:
* ''Literature/EdenGreen'' has the parasite-enhanced main characters sneak around abandoned parts of their city to fight invading needle monsters, all while trying to stay under the radar of any government organizations that would love to capture them.

Crosswicking Heroes Of The Desk
Added DiffLines:
[[folder:Fan Works]] * The reason for the existence of SPEAR in the ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' fanfic ''FanFic/HeroesOfTheDesk''. The usual InUniverse justification for the masquerade is a CrypticBackgroundReference related to the Roman Empire, though [[BeenThereShapedHistory involvement by SPEAR-like agencies]] in the past has been mentioned in the context of feudalism, whaling, the Salem Witch Trials, and something related to the Catholic Church.

* Subverted in ''Film/{{Thor}}''. The Marvel Universe doesn't become fully [[TheUnmasquedWorld unmasqued]] until the battle of New York. So when the big guy goes around announcing to anyone who'll listen who he is and who's his daddy, everyone just assumes he's delusional. It's only under the arrival of compounding evidence--e.g. the Destroyer, Lady Sif and the warriors three, the bifrost, the self-propelled hammer, and the return of Thor's magical armor--force TheReveal.
