* According to Creator/ElliotSMaggin's pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}} novel ''Literature/LastSonOfKrypton'', supergenius SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor actually maintains [[InventedIndividual dozens of identities]] as artists, scientists, and other highbrow society positions. He does it partly to influence affairs in those fields, partly as a source of income, but mostly to keep from being ''bored''.

-->'''Sam''': "''[[AtrociousAlias Inviso-bill]]''? You need an agent." * The show ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunningham9thGradeNinja'' centers around the Norrisville ninja who is in fact Randy Cunningham. He keeps his identity a secret to stay save from his enemies. He only told his best friend Howard Weinerman about his secret identity, though several others have come to know it.

* Bruce Banner is the Comicbook/IncredibleHulk, which starts off as a secret but ends up as public knowledge in most continuities, in part because it's kind of a hard secret to keep under wraps. Ditto for his cousin Jennifer Walters, AKA [[SheHulk She-Hulk]], albeit for somewhat different reasons. (Most of the time, She-Hulk is in control of whether she appears as Walters or She-Hulk; for a while, she appeared as She-Hulk pretty much all of the time, and once became locked in that form (a development that didn't bother her in the least).)

** ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' rarely bothers with Secret Identities except when the Rangers are still in school such as [[Series/KousokuSentaiTurboranger Turboranger]] or [[Series/DenjiSentaiMegaranger Megaranger]], and this is solely to prevent alienating them from their peers at school [[Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger Boukenger]] plays this straight (in early episode a least) and [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Goseiger]] plays this straight as well with The V cinema special revolving around their Identities becoming public knowledge. Otherwise the teams are either military sponsored with the members belonging to the military ([[Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger Goranger]], [[Series/JAKQDengekitai JAKQ]], [[Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman Changeman]], [[Series/HikariSentaiMaskman Maskman]], [[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger Ohranger]], etc), the teams abandon their civilian lives after becoming Rangers and live and operate solely out of the team's base ([[Series/ChoudenshiBioman Bioman]] & [[Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman Liveman]]), or the teams are not from Earth and have no civilian lives at all, and operate out of their bases ([[Series/ChoushinseiFlashman Flashman]], [[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Zyuranger]] & [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman Gingaman]]).

* ''SavageDragon'' doesn't even remember his real name so his legal name is really Dragon. Obviously, even if he wanted to keep his identity a secret, it's a bit hard since he's a big green man with a fin on his head.

While [[KeepingSecretsSucks trying to protect that secret]], the superhero is often placed in the worst kind of situations that threaten to expose it. For instance, there is the BruceWayneHeldHostage scenario. In more mundane moments, the superhero often has to quickly come up with a SecretIdentityChangeTrick in order to get out of sight. He may have to cut off most relationships to prevent this necessity. ''Especially'' [[TheMasqueradeWillKillYourDatingLife romantic relationships.]]
