%%* Subverted with Candace from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''... sort of...



* Twist to the formula in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. Instead of a civilian keeping the superhero's secret, Artemis has her superhero teammate, Robin, keeping the fact that her immediate family is all supervillains and that she's not really related to hero Green Arrow secret. Artemis is actually terrified of what everyone will think of her if her secret comes out, so it's pretty cool of Robin that he's known all along but has trusted her completely from the beginning. He did, however, troll her by talking to her secret identity (which he knows) as his own secret identity (which ''she'' doesn't know) after she gets a mysterious scholarship from the Wayne Foundation and starts attending his high school.
--> '''Robin (taking a selfie with her in their school uniforms)''': We'll laugh about this someday.\\
''(Robin runs away immediately)''\\

** Red Arrow knows that she isn't who she claims to be, but has let her know this and says that though he doesn't trust her, he does trust Batman and Green Arrow (who obviously know everything, possibly so do the rest of the League) and won't tell the team.



** During a Justice League meeting, Franchise/WonderWoman comments that nobody knew about [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]'s [[OlderAlterEgo real age]], only for Franchise/{{Batman}} to announce that he did. Cap is visibly surprised by this. (WordOfGod says Batman knew everybody in the League's identity, even if they didn't volunteer the information.)

** Dick is supposed to keep his identity a secret from his friends, at Batman's insistence, but shared the truth with his best friend, Wally; as a result, Wally knows that Batman is Bruce Wayne, and playfully teases the information in "Image." Possibly {{Subverted}}; the tie-in comic shows Wally attending Dick's birthday party, so it's entirely possible that Bruce knows Wally's in on the secret.

**** Previously, in the story, Gordon and his partner, Sarah Essen questioned Bruce about his possibly being Batman. Clearly, the super wealthy guy who watched his parents get murdered and recently returned to town might be on any detectives short list.

* In ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'', Yuka Yamazaki, the love interest of red ranger Kai, starts the series as his crush before [[TwoPersonLoveTriangle getting her own crush on Magired]] a few episodes in. During TheMovie that takes place a little more than halfway through the series, she figures out that Kai and Magired are one and the same, but never admits it to him over the course of the rest of the show. She simply makes occasional vague jokes, turns on the flirting a bit more, and quietly prays for his safety in the more dangerous battles.

* Police Captain (later Superintendent) Aaron Brooks works very closely with Sara Wolff, because she runs a group home and any runaway or abused children tend to end up in her facility. He also works closely with the Dark Flame, because she's a superhero who specializes in rescuing children. It didn't take him long to figure out that they were the same person.

* In ''Literature/TheShatteredKingdoms'', Jachid and his mother have been keeping the source of Meiran's illness secret from her, but in reality, she has known it for a long time. She understood why they didn't ''want'' to tell her, but still expected them to eventually trust her enough to do so. They didn't, and she left. When they meet again, Meiran is unwilling to clue Jachid in on her plan, which confuses and upsets him he doesn't realise that its because she knows about his own lack of openness.

* It is [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes suggested]] (but never outright stated) that Creator/DCComics' two most prominent heroes have supporting characters who know, or strongly suspect, the hero's secret identity. It's implied that they know, and that the heroes ''know'' they know, but that no good would come from any of them actually speaking about it openly:
