* In the original ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' OVA, Leon [=McNichol=], the CowboyCop crossing paths with the Knight Sabers when he's not playing CasanovaWannabe for Priss, becomes her Secret Secret Keeper in the sixth episode when it's revealed he saw her face when the visor of her [[PoweredArmor hardsuit]] broke during the climactic battle of the previous episode. He never directly reveals his knowledge, but does give Priss a cryptic warning after they both survive an encounter with the BigBad of the arc.



* Touka Aizuki of ''Manga/SukiXSuki'' can turn invisible to everyone except her crush Ryoutaro. Despite the fact that Touka's main use of her power is hovering close to him and embracing invisibility's PowerPerversionPotential, Ryoutaro's kept quiet to spare her the embarrassment of knowing he's witnessed everything she's done or said while invisible.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'': ''[[AllInTheManual Covenant of Primus]]'' reveals that Alpha Trion [[spoiler:was aware that Orion Pax was the reincarnation of "Thirteen," the last of the thirteen original Primes, long before he regained his memories and retook his original name: Optimus Prime. That being said, after regaining his PastLifeMemories there is no indication that Optimus was aware that Alpha Trion knew who he was, though considering that in this continuity, Alpha Trion is ''also'' a member of the Thirteen (which is why he knew who Orion Pax was), it's entirely possible he suspected as much.]]

%%* 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.
