** In 1981's ''Superman'' #362 and #365-366, a flashback to Clark's early days at Metropolis University show he operated in secret as Superboy, to avoid anyone noticing Clark and Superboy both moving from Smallville to Metropolis. During this time, the whole country's abuzz and wondering what city Superboy had moved to. One scene even shows gamblers in UsefulNotes/LasVegas taking bets on which city the Boy of Steel had picked. The cities guessed at included Metropolis, [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Gotham City]], [[BigApplesauce New York]] (future home of the ComicBook/TeenTitans), UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC (future pre-Crisis home of Franchise/WonderWoman), UsefulNotes/{{Boston}}, UsefulNotes/{{Miami}}, UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} (future home of a short-lived version of the ComicBook/JusticeLeague), UsefulNotes/NewOrleans, and UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}. Oddly, other than Metropolis and Gotham, none of the other fictional DCU cities were guessed at by anyone. Adding to the hype, each city claimed they'd found (false) "proof" of Superboy secretly doing super-feats there. The ex-Smallville Sensation finally comes out in the open, thanks in part to then-reporter Perry White deducing the Boy of Steel was in Metropolis.

* The titular character in the song "Camouflage" by Stan Ridgway (also covered by Music/{{Sabaton}} on their album ''The Last Stand''). The song is sung from the viewpoint of a young P.F.C. (Private first class) of the [[SemperFi United States Marine Corps]] during the UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar. On a search and destroy mission he is separated from his patrol. Alone in the jungle, he fears for his life when, unexpectedly, a "big marine" comes to his rescue introducing himself as "Camouflage". The two fight together through the course of a night making their way back to base, during which the PFC notices that Camouflage is unaffected by bullets and is capable of superhuman feats. Camouflage leaves after leading the PFC to the edge of his camp. [[spoiler:On his return, the PFC is informed that Camouflage has been on his death bed for the past week and died the previous night, his last wish being "to save a young marine".]]

* In a rather odd variation, odder for being in one of the [[{{Gorn}} bloodiest]] and [[MindScrew mindscrewy]] {{Seinen}} out there, Ran and Ichise ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}'' are this from each other. Ran, resident MysteriousWaif, is the more traditional version, distant and mysterious, appearing to guide or help Ichise out suddenly at pivotal and critical moments, before fading away into the background, remaining almost anonymous until at least halfway through the anime. Ichise, on the other hand, is [[TheStoic dark and quiet]] {{Determinator}} who tends to show up mysteriously at the right moments through more sheer luck than anything else (while all of Ran's appearances are intentional, as far as we know).
