* In the three-part premiere of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Superman initially saved people and flew away without an explanation, becoming known as a mysterious "angel" until (like the ''The Man Of Steel'' example above) he had to save a plane in full public view. Martha Kent convinced him that he ought to go public rather than try to hide, lest people think that he was anything like [[Franchise/{{Batman}} "that nut in Gotham City"]].

** The original Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} was this for a while. Since she was not supposed to reveal her existence to the world until her hero training was concluded, she secretly patrolled the small town of Midvale at night, trying not to get caught while she stopped crimes and saved people. Midvale locals rumored that they were protected by a "guardian angel".
** In the original ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' story, Kara is not supposed to reveal her existence to the world until her hero training is done, so she decides to patrol Midvale secretly at night, trying not to get caught while she stops crimes and saves people.

--->'''Supergirl:''' Maybe I can still do super-deeds for worthy people without being seen, like a sort of guardian angel!"

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', a mysterious masked man shows up to protect, err, the "[[AntiVillain villains". From Nanoha. [[spoiler:He wasn't actually a man either, or even a single person. He was a pair of shapeshifting twin catgirls. But that's a detail.]]

* Mickey Mouse (Yes, ''the'' Mickey Mouse) serves this role during certain boss fights in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''. Get killed during certain encounters and you have the option of having King Mickey rescue you. (He is far more BadAss than you'd expect any Disney character to be.) Now, obviously Sora, Donald, and Goofy would recognize the King when they see him (He's kind of hard to miss, even with the ridiculous BlackCloak), but he always seems to teleport away immediately after rescuing Sora, so it's never made quite clear if Sora is aware the King is following him around. His rescues are more of a gameplay mechanic rather than an actual element of the plot.

** Post-Crisis Supergirl also did this once. In the ''DC Universe Holiday Special 2008: A Day Without Sirens'', a "Day Without Sirens" is proposed right before Christmas. Commissioner Gordon believes such an initiative is doomed to failure. The criminals of Gotham would never heed such a calling. However, the day proceeds without police sirens. [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pScx8BN4h3s/SU-kKYaVUmI/AAAAAAAACGc/LKdSPl0ht34/s1600-h/holiday-09.jpg It turns out that]] Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}/Oracle teamed up with Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and both girls handled covertly all emergency calls during that day. Supergirl ended up completely exhausted, though, making clear she cannot keep it up forever.
--->'''Oracle:''' Just rest easy knowing you did something special today.\\
'''Supergirl:''' You really think so? Do you think this one day is going to make a difference?\\
'''Oracle:''' I know so. Never discount the healing power of a little hope, Kara.

* Angel in season 1 of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. The first time he and Buffy meet, he doesn't even say tell her his name and just says he's a "friend". His story slowly gets unravelled, and by early season 2 he is less mysterious and Buffy's [[BattleCouple boyfriend]], not protector. By the time he gets his own series, he's a BadAss hero.
