* Completely averted with ThePowerpuffGirls. They have no secret identities and everyone knows where they live. They could have been de facto identities in the episode "Super Zeroes," where they assume the persona of their own pseudo-superheroes (Blossom as Liberty Belle, Bubbles as Harmony Bunny, and Buttercup as Mange).

** So far, along with Daredevil, ComicBook/SpiderMan is one of the only characters in the setting to work at keeping his identity a secret from the public, and Tony is (thus far) the only one to have traced it to nerdy high-schooler Peter Parker. Part of his reasoning is that he doesn't want his aunt May to be worried about him and "freak out". He's quick to web Tony's hand to his doorknob right in his own bedroom when the prospect of outting his exploits comes up. It's implied by the end of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' that it's still his secret to keep.

Then in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', he ends up being outed to his friend Ned, [[spoiler:the ''villain'', and finally Aunt May.]]

** Even [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Captain America]] doesn't have one. While the army kept the Super Soldier Program a secret for obvious reasons, Steve was making movies and doing USO tours. Sure, it was a cover, but Steve was still walking around without his mask backstage in full view of civilians. In fact, he was maskless in his first few adventures, going so far as to face the BigBad for the first time without hiding his identity. He worked closely with at least one civilian scientists and drafted soldiers who would be out of the army soon and returning to civilian life. By the time ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' rolls around, the entire public knows who he is thanks to an exhibit at the Smithsonian detailing his entire [=WW2=] career.

** ComicBook/{{Daredevil}} notably ''does'' have a SecretIdentity, perhaps the first example in the MCU.

* Secret identities are a big deal throughout the WhateleyUniverse. At the SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy, students use codenames, and for anything that might expose them (like printed campus security reports or the televised combat finals) they have to go by the codename and wear a costume. Way back when the headmistress was Ms. Might and her secret identity was blown, her husband was murdered and her kids were terrorized. She's tough on this rule
