** Though apparently, in the case of British intelligence services at least, the only reason that they haven't moved is that they haven't found anywhere that's both large enough and anonymous enough to suit their purposes. Which is very believable, since [=MI5=] didn't officially exist until 1989, GCHQ and [=MI6=] until 1994, and none of them came out of the shadows by choice.

* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' character Alice Jones has her backpack as an Ostentatious Secret. What's inside? [[spoiler:The ''severed head'' of Guy Rapide, her almost-boyfriend.]] Not so much her wanting everybody to know about it than it being extremely obvious that she's keeping something in her pack.

* A meta-example for ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' is whatever Titania whispers to Fox at the end of "The Gathering." Creator GregWeisman [[WordOfGod has said]] that he wants to keep it secret in case he ever gets to make the series again and use it, but admits that it's [[AntiClimax not as great as people are probably hoping]].

* In general, intelligence agencies seems to have a bit of a fetish for prominent architecture. The CIA has the George Bush Center, the NSA has that sinister black monolith at Fort Mead, MI6 has 85 Vauxhall Cross, GCHQ has that doughnut-shaped building in Cheltenham, the NKVD and KGB has the Lubyanka Building in Moscow. All together, it does project a vague "come at me, bro" attitude to their enemies.

The CIA has the George Bush Center, the NSA has that sinister black monolith at Fort Mead, Meade (Which is engraved with a variety of messages encrypted by different methods. One of the messages is only known by ''two'' people, the man who invented the algorithm and the man who chose the message to encrypt and engraved it on the monolith), MI6 has 85 Vauxhall Cross, GCHQ has that doughnut-shaped building in Cheltenham, the NKVD and KGB has the Lubyanka Building in Moscow.

* This is apparently one of [[NorseMythology Odin's]] powers. As Creator/NeilGaiman put it in ''Literature/AmericanGods'': "And I know an 18th charm & that charm I can tell to no man, for a secret that nobody knows but you is the most powerful thing of all."
