* ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' had a scene in a hospital where Otoya (dressed as an old woman) and Jiro (dressed as a doctor) are doing some recon despite the fact that they can't stand each other. They almost come to blows, but then some {{Muggles}} walk by and they fall into character, with Jiro asking "How are you doing, ma'am?" As soon as the civilians are out of sight, Jiro starts ''[[SuddenlyShouting shouting]]'' the same thing into Otoya's ear.

* Seen in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' episode "The Tower Is Tall But The Fall Is Short". Cameron and another Terminator have a FightScene that turns into an ElevatorActionSequence, and then into an UncomfortableElevatorMoment when the elevator stops for a family of civilians. The two Terminators stand there silently for the duration, covering up their wounds, and then go back to beating the [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars slag]] out of each other once they're alone again.
* Partial example. In {{Series/Merlin}}, nobody except Merlin and Gaius know about [[spoiler: Morgana's FaceHeelTurn]]. Merlin has to play nice and pretend to be overjoyed about [[spoiler:her]] being back, and [[spoiler:she]] has to continue the facade of friendship so as not to raise suspicion. That they keep this up for the better part of a ''year'' really says something about either their acting or everyone else's obliviousness.

* There's a CrowningMomentOfFunny for this trope in the ''{{Hellsing}}'' manga and OVA (Original Video Animation), where a meeting between Hellsing and the Catholics goes badly and Alucard and Anderson are about to throw down in an art museum, so Seras defuses the situation by pretending to be a guide and leading a group of elderly tourists into the room.
