* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** News of Ned Stark's death spreads across Westeros over the course of the next episode, with characters in the North, the Riverlands, and at the Wall reacting to it.
** Justified when Stannis Baratheon publishes the illegitimacy of Cersei's children ''very'' widely and it catches by WordOfMouth. By Season 4, it's spread across the Narrow Sea to Braavos and Meereen.
** Since Daenerys has been living with the nomadic Dothraki and wandering the Red Waste, she learns Westeros has plunged into a SuccessionCrisis only after arriving at the port of Qarth. Later, when she's settled in the major port at Meereen, she receives news much faster.
** Arya and the Hound spend most of Season 4 out of the loop as they cross the Riverlands, hiding out as fugitives, and learn far later than the other cast, that Joffrey is dead.
** Played straight in Season 6, where in the first two episodes, implied to take place mere days after Stannis' defeat at Winterfell, news of his downfall and defeat spreads far and wide, all the way to the Iron Islands.

** It probably doesn't get any straighter then this: you cannot sell stolen goods at all. Even if the store is on the ''other plane of existance'' from the crime scene you'll stll receive an "I don't receive stolen goods" reply. Such level of awareness makes you suspect a case of HiveMind. Or a remarkably efficient law enforcement system with instant and widespread notification about crimes...
* Mostly averted throughout the ''{{Geneforge}}'' series: the general population doesn't know what you've done unless it directly affects their own lives. Characters with an organization that can provide them intelligence know more about you if you've done anything significant to their own organization, but even they can't know everything. It's very possible to work for all factions at the same time, at least up to a PointOfNoReturn.

*Much to the chagrin of the four in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', who discover that they've become famous less than two days after they return to C'hou. Specifically, the librarian Nangre tells George that she overheard two separate groups discussing the “Awesome Foursome” in the library, which meant that the topic had to be widespread already. The four can't figure out how the news is being transmitted.

* Averted multiple times in the ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'' series. After Jak defeats the Metal Head leader at the end of ''JakIIRenegade'', no one in Spargus City knows who he is when he arrives there. And after he saves the world at the end of ''VideoGame/Jak3Wastelander'', people in Kras City only know him for his racing exploits.
