* Harry Card in ''Literature/{{Below}}'' is the real father of Ed Finch's son, and his affair with Finch's wife Maddie has been going on for years since. Because Harry and Finch are still lifelong best friends, and everyone is intimidated by [[TheDragon Finch]], everyone assumes Finch himself is the only one in the dark and no one wants to be the person to tell him.

* In ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'', Rarity is into all manner of kinky, {{BDSM}} stuff, and she does a terrible job of hiding it. She keeps accidentally bringing it up in casual conversations, then tries to cover it up--as if everyone hadn't already figured it out from the ''last'' twenty times she let it slip.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': the eponymous SuperheroSchool, Whateley Academy, is one. While the existence of ''a'' ParanormalInstitute for teaching mutants is public knowledge of a sort, or at least the subject of rumors - they even advertise products created by some of the students under the brand name 'Paranormal Academy', though apparently most people think that's just a marketing gimmick - few people know for certain if it is real, and only a handful actually know the name and location. Most major superheroes and supervillains - even those who didn't attend Whateley themselves - do know about it, as do the Syndicate (who are a major backer), the Mutant Commission Office, and most national and state/provincial governments. Many major metropolitan police departments have someone who is at least familiar enough with the school to know who to contact when a newly manifested mutant shows up, too.

* All the proper columnists in ''Magazine/PrivateEye'' write under pseudonyms. Sometimes this is because their work (or possibly even safety) would be genuinely hindered if people knew who they were. Other times it's just because it's traditional. This sometimes leads to oddities like the "Medicineballs" column, which is written under the pseudonym "M.D." ... except that anyone who cares is well aware that it's by Dr Phil Hammond of ''Trust Me, I'm a Doctor'' and ''28 Minutes to Save the NHS''.

** In a sense, the new (created circa 2017) board /trash/. It's not on the top list and is designed a a dumping ground for everything that the other boards can't have ''including /b/'' (including furries and extreme kinks) nor want to have (such as "generals", threads devoted to a general topic). This board is not intended for people under 18 to go to at all.

* Creator/SamAndMickey's stop-motion Franchise/{{Barbie}} comedies have Barbie try to pass off hers and Ken's illegitimate daughters as her "little sisters", but it seems rare for someone not to recognize Barbie as the girls' actual mother. It doesn't help that the "little sisters" often don't try to keep the secret.

** On the same token, much of the nobility of Westeros seems to be aware, or at the very least ''suspicious,'' that Queen Cersei is having an affair with her twin brother, and that her children are illegitimate bastards. However, few are actually willing to directly challenge Cersei on this matter because of her political allies. Ned Stark learns this [[DoomedMoralVictor the hard way.]] However, as of "A Man Without Honour" in the second season, even Jaime and Cersei have given up denying it.

Only Tywin, their lord father, [[SelectiveObliviousness refuses to acknowledge the truth even to himself]] since it would mean that his whole legacy is built on a lie.
