* Valerie of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' started to notice odd things about Danny shortly after becoming TheHunter ("Where's he running to all the time? Only guys I see running off like that have a job..."), but it never led anywhere (in [[TemporalParadox the real timeline]], anyway).

* Done straight in ''SupermanReturns'', apparently as a LampshadeHanging of ClarkKenting; Lois Lane and her fiance are discussing Superman, as Lois rattles off some of the hero's traits, including his height. Her fiance then looks at Clark, and asks Lois how tall she thinks he is. As they're looking thoughtfully at him, Clark "notices" them looking, gives a profoundly dorky wave, and they say "Nah..." and laugh.

* Taken to extremes for laughs in ''WordGirl''. Becky almost gets caught in several episodes--including one where her cape is actually sticking out from under her clothing (she's only able to throw off her friend by purposefully flubbing a "vocab bee") and another where a villain tricks her into flying in front of her family--then accidentally zaps away everyone's memory, including his own. Even her parents begin to put the pieces together, but the family pet intentionally distracts them just as they are about to have the epiphany.

* In the first episode of the second season of ''HannahMontana'', child prodigy Rico starts high school the same day as Miley & Co. and blackmails Miley into being his girlfriend by threatening to reveal her secret. Too bad it's the wrong secret...

Added DiffLines:

** When Miley does reveal herself as Hannah to the world, Rico nearly has a complete breakdown trying to figure out how he could never have put it together. After having some fun with him at first, Jackson cheers Rico up by having a gospel group sing about all the other smart people who couldn't see through the act.

* Mamori in ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'', generally one of the smartest characters in the series, is only able to imagine that Sena and Eyeshield ''don't like each other'' when she realizes that they're never around at the same time. And when "Eyeshield" accidentally calls her "Mamori-nee", appropriate since the two have been friends since childhood, Mamori of course thinks that Sena must have ''told'' him to call her that. Apparently, she's so used to thinking of Sena as an unathletic, unassertive pushover, she only found out after Sena removed his helmet in front of her.

* MutekiKanbanMusume, being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, presents a variation: Kankuro fervently believes that he is Mikiís WorthyOpponent, but to Miki (and everyone else) he is only the UnknownRival:
--> '''Kankuro''' Ė Talking while a PhotoMontage of him being {{CurbStompBattle}}d by a smiling Miki: ''But everytime, my attacks have failed just barely. Everytime, Iíve lost just by a hairís breadth, [[VerbalTic nya!]]''
* Tsukiumi from {{Sekirei}} unknowingly lives with her [[PaperThinDisguise masked rival]] for months without cluing in. When she first meets him as Kagari, she comments that he "looks familiar", but fails to put the obvious together. She eventually puts two and two together, after [[spoiler: Kagari attempts to kill Minato with a fireball]] ......but only after she realizes there's only ''one'' Sekirei with fire-powers, and Musubi states that she once saw a masked man that looked like Kagari from behind.

* CyranoDeBergerac: The LovesMyAlterEgo variety. Cyrano initiates ASimplePlan: he will be PlayingCyrano to Christian so he can woo Roxane, hiding from [[UnwittingPawn Christian and Roxane]] the fact that Cyrano also is in love with Roxane, whom he believes will never reciprocate his feelings. Roxane and Cyrano justify the trope, and Christian averts it.

* Played with in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Newly released from Arkham, Harley Quinn is [[VillainsOutShopping out shopping]] when she runs into Bruce Wayne. She stops him, then covers the top half of his face, saying, "I recognize [[LanternJawOfJustice that chin]]..." and then declares, "I knew it! You're Bruce Wayne, boy billionaire!"

What's worse is that her two pet hyenas ''recognize Bruce as Batman'' and react with obvious hostility, yet Harley is ''still confused.''

* Comic book subversion: In ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'', Kenny figures out who the titular hero is early in the comic's run, and though he tries to shake the trail by actively ''ignoring'' his SpiderSense, it's shown much later that Kenny's still sure. In fact, when he calls Peter on it, he assumed that everybody knew and it was an ElephantInTheRoom.
* Comic Book Subversion: In the SilverAge ''GreenLantern'', Thomas Kalmaku figures out that Hal Jordan is Green Lantern pretty darn quickly - by seeing similarities in how they punch, no less. He even asks Hal to give him a [[LaserGuidedAmnesia mind wipe to make him forget that fact]]. Hal, interestingly, does ''not'' oblige.

* ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'': Akane Tendo with regards to P-chan's true identity. Several other characters fall victim to it as well, including one who actually ''sees the transformation of two individuals he views as separate'', but in that case it is heavily [[LampshadeHanging mocked by the rest of the cast]].
