* The Masquerade in ''{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin'' certainly qualifies. In this case, they even have different robes to indicate which leader commands them, though they will all take orders from the Joker.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ConanTheBarbarian novel ''Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon'', the cult of Asura is portrayed as this. While they are secretive, Conan refused to persecute them without actual crimes, and they assist him in regaining his throne. And do not, in the course of the novel, show any sign that the accusations are anything but MaliciousSlander.

* JackieChan stumbles onto one in the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' episode "The Chan That Knew Too Much". Much of the humor in that episode comes from their deciding HeKnowsTooMuch.

* A rare heroic example from ''Webcomic/TheSanityCircus'': The Nameless Organisation is concerned with tracking down, monitoring and keeping a lid on [[EldritchAbomination the Scarecrows]], but they do with maximum secrecy and all information is strictly limited. They're even called 'The Nameless Organisation', after all.

** Also, this trope is being invoked in-universe: the trappings of the Circle hide the fact that they aren't a secret society at all. They're actually the ghosts of a fallen civilization using their rituals to possess the bodies of both innocent victims and recruits. They act like a secret society both to get a greater pool of bodies to incarnate into and to look like a different kind of threat to law enforcement and the government. The masks and robes ensure their low-level recruits don't notice the replacements.
