* In the ''Literature/VillageTales'' novels, the Duke of Taunton, being a member of the Privy Council and a retired [[MajorlyAwesome major]] in the Intelligence Corps, is used to being one. Being left his RemittanceMan brother's CompromisingMemoirs, though, is specially vexing. And of course the Roman Catholic and C of E (sky-High, Anglo-Catholic) clergy in the District have heard more confessions than the Duke's cook has served hot dinners.

* In Literature/TheStormlightArchive, Teft and Lopen end up acting as Kaladin's Secret Keepers after Kaladin first discovers his magical abilities (though Teft actually knew about them before Kaladin even did) later the rest of Bridge 4 gets let in on it, though it was kind of necessary seeing as Kaladin demonstrated said abilities fairly spectacularly. Also Shallan and Jasnah are currently mutual Secret Keepers of their shared innate soulcasting powers, and Dalinar's sons and Navani are keeping the secret of Dalinar's visions.

* 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. Lelouch gains many more Secret Keepers as the second season progresses with the likes of Kallen and his own maid, Sayoko, but after the GrandFinale, only a handful of people in the world know that Zero [[spoiler: has been replaced by Suzaku Kururugi]].

** As stated above, the trope namer is the Fidelius Charm, a spell that makes one individual a literal Secret Keeper; as long as they keep the secret, it cannot be found out by anybody else. In addition, even if the Secret Keeper does tell someone the secret, that someone is unable to pass on the knowledge unless the original Secret Keeper dies, in which case they become the new Secret Keeper. This is most often used to conceal locations, and the house where Harry and his parents lived was guarded under the Charm so that [[BigBad Voldemort]] couldn't ever find them. They specifically chose [[spoiler:Peter Pettigrew]] because everyone would naturally assume [[spoiler:James Potter would select his brother-from-another-mother best friend, Sirius Black. Knowing that, the Potters decided, [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom at Sirius's suggestion]], to choose a less obvious Secret Keeper and Pettigrew became]] it. They just didn't know that Pettigrew [[spoiler: was a Death-Eater]].

* J.M. Straczynski was this to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_O%27Hare Michael O'Hare]]. O'Hare played the lead character on ''Series/BabylonFive'' but left after the first season. The reason is O'Hare was battling bouts of paranoid delusions, which both hurt his relationship with his castmembers, who weren't privy to this knowledge, and threatened to damage the show. After discussing things with [=JMS=], [=JMS=] wrote his character off in a way to allow for him to return when he was better and publicly gave false reports on why the character was written off. Even after the show ended in 1998, [=JMS=] continued to not reveal the secret until O'Hare's death in 2012, which kept with the man's wishes who wanted people to know the truth about his condition.

* In ''Fanfic/HopeForTheHeartless'' (which takes place shortly after the events of ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron''), [[ResurrectedForAJob the]] [[VillainProtagonist Horned]] [[OurLichesAreDifferent King]] imprisons a 14-year-old peasant girl named [[OriginalCharacter Avalina]] - who stumbles upon his castle during one stormy night - to retain his return a secret from Prydain. He threatens to kill her and her loved ones should she try to escape, but grants her request to say the proper farewells to her family. During her short stay with her mother and brother, she asks them to keep everything a secret to prevent mass panic from erupting due to the Horned King's resurrection. They eventually agree reluctantly, realising that they can't possibly do anything without potentially endangering Avalina's life.
** Months later (during that time [[LimaSyndrome the Horned King]] and [[MoralityPet Avalina]] have grown closer), the lich and the girl stumble by chance upon Taran the pig-keeper and Princess Eilonwy (who are Avalina's friends) while being outdoors. The vengeful lich almost kills them, but Avalina [[GoThroughMe manages]] to change his mind and they depart. Taran and Eilonwy tell of this encounter to [[TheMentor Dallben]]. After gaining a confirmation from [[WaifProphet Hen]] [[NonHumanSidekick Wen]] about Avalina's account of the events leading there, the trio decides to remain silent for the same reasons as Avalina's family.
