* ''Film/CitizenKane'', sure everyone knows the ending, but the point of the film is that nobody InUniverse will learn. The mystery of Rosebud is something entirely private and special to Charles Foster Kane and something he never shared with anybody. When he died, he took that with him. It will remain a RiddleForTheAges. Thompson hangs a {{Lampshade}} on it at the end: --> '''Thompson''': Mr. Kane was a man who got everything he wanted and then lost it. Maybe Rosebud was something he couldn't get, or something he lost. Anyway, it wouldn't have explained anything... I don't think any word can explain a man's life. No, I guess Rosebud is just a... piece in a jigsaw puzzle... a missing piece.

* ''Franchise/{[Halo}}'': The story of ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'', being [[GaidenGame a mere aside]] to the fantastic adventures of the Master Chief. ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' shares this to some extent with Noble Team's role, though [[AllThereInTheManual bonus materials]] indicate that their heroics became famous after the war, to the point where the public even built a statue to honor them.

** However, [[WordOfGod the developers have stated in the artbook]] that the entire game is framed as an in-universe documentary show, implying that an incomplete and fragmented version of the main cast's story eventually becomes public knowledge, with Squad 422 finally being recognized for their heroic deeds.

* The StarTrekVanguard series concerns itself with this (focusing on a highly classified Starfleet operation in the Taurus Reach), particularly given that one of its characters, Tim Pennington, is a journalist trying to get the facts made public. One of the books in StarTrekTheLostEra demonstrates that a century after Project Vanguard the existence of the ScaryDogmaticAliens at the heart of it all is common knowledge in the Federation, at least on the level of "they were here", but much of what the characters did in the Taurus Reach remains unacknowledged. The ''Literature/StarTrekTyphonPact'' novel ''Paths of Disharmony'' features classified records of Project Vanguard as an essential part of its plot, confirming that although some of the events are widely known (the Tholians won't let the memories die, for one thing), much of the true picture is deeply buried beyond the reach of anyone but the highest members of the Federation government and Starfleet Command. The final page of the Vanguard series finale, ''Storming Heaven'', pretty much confirms that this trope is the major theme of the series.

* Played with in ''Manga/{{YuGiOh}}'', as in Ancient Egypt Atem could only defeat Zorc and Bakura by sealing his soul in the Puzzle, killing all three in the process and using his own name as a seal on the ancient power. This gives him VictoryGuidedAmnesia, and the villains aid his quest to regain his memories as they want to get his name and take his power to resummon the evil god. However, part of the seal was that Atem erased himself from history, so in the original Japanese no-one knows that he saved the world. The tournaments he wins while in Yugi's body also get credited wholly to Yugi, since no-one but Yugi's friends know of his existence.

* The entirety of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesIII''. Ordinary Gallians will never know of Squad 422's deeds, the unholy alliance between [[spoiler:Cardinal Borgia and Carl Isler]], and how the world is spared from the devastation by [[spoiler:an ancient Valkyric superweapon]]. To make it worse, Kurt and co are still considered bad people by the society. [[FinalFantasyTactics Hm, I wonder why that sounds familiar...]]
