* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Klara first came to the Runaways' attention when they stopped a fire in a factory where she happened to be working. Afraid that they were one of the two gangs that were hunting for people with superpowers, she fled the scene via a hole in the back of the factory, rather than going out through the front with the other children who'd been caught in the fire. Had she gone through the front with the rest, nobody would have paid attention to her, but her attempts to hide attracted Karolina's attention, leading her to discover Klara's horrible home life.

* ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'' is all about averting this trope. Rather than being KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade, anyone who finds out about {{Eldritch Abomination}}s is conscripted into the Laundry's bloated bureaucracy. If you start killing off your own citizens because [[YouKnowTooMuch they know too much]], sooner or later something will go wrong and the associated publicity will cost more than just giving them a public service job.

* This was often used in ''Series/{{Quincy}} M.E.'' but the episode "Visitors in Paradise" was a real standout example, where Quincy was convinced that the death was exactly what was claimed until the bad guys started trying to run him out of town and made him go back over everything in greater detail.

** A similar aversion occurred with ''Film/DrStrangelove'', as the model B-52 bomber was ''so'' accurate that the military initially wanted it altered, until someone pointed out that doing so would run afoul of this trope.

** When Light realizes L has tapped his room, Light executes an extremely elaborate plan to look innocent with L as his witness. Light appearing perfectly innocent while criminals he should have no way of learning about die, but relatively minor criminals compared to Kira's usual targets, only seems to make L more suspicious.
