** The trope gets invoked in a ''nasty'' manner in a {{filler}} case. [[spoiler: A girl named Shouko Utakura finds her friend Sawanami dead and, due to his {{dying clue}}s, she realises that their common acquintance Mifune is the murderer. However, Shouko is Mifune's UnrequitedTragicMaiden and decides to keep this a secret... but commits the huge mistake of ''actually'' telling Mifune that she knew the truth, but wouldn't snitch. Mifune, who had killed Sawanami because he was involved in his girlfriend's death ''and'' now believes Shouko had something to do with it too, thought she would denounce him anyway ''and few days later he strangles her to death''.]]

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', C.C. is a Secret Keeper (and sometimes BodyDouble) for Lelouch. Euphemia is a SecretSecretKeeper, since not even Lelouch realizes that she figured out on her own that Lelouch was Zero.

On another level, Milly Ashford and Suzaku Kururugi are the only ones of Lelouch's friends who are aware of his and Nunally's royal heritage, since the former's family are the ones sheltering them and the latter lived with them during their initial exile.
