* Trixie and Spud, from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong''. In the episode where they find out about Jake's dragon powers, Jake's grandfather gives him a potion that will erase their memories and [[ResetButton put everything back the way it was]] to maintain the {{Masquerade}} around the magical world. In a subversion of StatusQuoIsGod (and possibly as a "screw you" to ''JuniperLee'', which had a reset after her friends found out), he pours it out in a potted plant rather than dose their drinks, and they continue to help him in both forms.

** Prior to TheReveal in Chapter 14, Soundbite was the only one who knew that Cross knew a lot more than he was letting on, but even he didn't know everything; it seems that somehow his knowledge from the Internet doesn't extend to ''One Piece'' itself.
** Post-Reveal, the crew keeps his secret; the only outsiders to learn the truth about Cross thus far are Vivi's family and Ace.
** Zoro and Nami also serve as this; whenever there's sensitive information that needs to be handled properly, Cross shares it only with the first and second mate… and Soundbite, of course.
***
In ''Fanfic/TravelsOfTheTrifecta'', there Chapter 24, as part of penance towards Vivi, Cross agrees to let her in on it as well.
** In Chapter 28, Cross writes down all of his relevant knowledge for the Skypiea arc, knowing that he won't be able to speak freely while Eneru is around. He asks Robin to help him out, because she's the one with experience in being discreet when one slip-up could mean death, because her powers will help him write faster...and because she'd just peek at his notes anyway.
