* 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]].

* Deeply subverted in ''MagicalProjectS''. In the final episode, the panicked sidekick runs into the heroine's classroom and tells her she needs to transform into her superhero form right away. She's horrified to realize that her identity has been revealed in front of all her classmates...but they just shrug: "We've known it all along. After all, you and the costumed superhero look the same, have the same voice, the same personality, and almost the same name. We just didn't say anything because we figured it was supposed to be a secret."

* Subverted in [[{{WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong}} American Dragon: Jake Long]] with Professor Rottwood constantly trying to catch the dragon that he keeps seeing and no one else does, but never catches on to the fact that Jake is the dragon despite huge amounts of evidence. [[spoiler: At least until a certain episode in Season 2, when he tricks Jake into revealing he's a dragon and reveals that he's had his suspicions for some time.]]

But ultimately, because StatusQuoIsGod, they'll never figure it out, not because TheHero actively beefs up his {{Masquerade}} security or intentionally throws them off the trail, but because they choose never to pursue things further ("Nah, it couldn't be").

But ultimately, because StatusQuoIsGod, they'll never figure it out, not because TheHero actively beefs up his {{Masquerade}} security or intentionally throws them off the trail, but because they choose never to pursue things further let the subject drop and/or decide that the obvious conclusion just can't be true ("Nah, it couldn't be").

** Super Goof is obviously Goofy with long whool underwear, a blue towel as a cape, and his signature hat. It took a supercomputer to point out the obvious... And the Beagle Boys and O'Hara immediately deduced that the supercomputer was still damaged due Super Goof's sabotage early in the story, for anyone but Goofy could be Super Goof, and for anyone we mean even ''Captain Hook and Thinkerbell'' (Thinkerbell is mentioned by name by the Beagle Boys while they say this, while Hook was one of the names the sabotaged computer gave them). Super Goof was not amused by this.
*** Incidentally, some stories show that Mickey Mouse ''knows'' Super Goof's identity. The implication isn't that Mickey is a genious (as Goofy's nephew Gilbert, a known genious, had no suspicions before he found out by accident), just that he's the only one willing to give Goofy enough credit.
