* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': When Asuka finally came clean to Shinji about being ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' she said she would like that he was her confidant. He replied he would also like to be more than a friend because he likes her. Asuka admitted she liked him back and they kissed.

* As seen in the page quote, this is [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''Film/IronMan1''. Averted in the actual story, however.

Tony of course goes on to avert it spectacularly, because no SecretIdentity could survive contact with his ego.

* Astrid in the film of ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon''. Not directly after the reveal, but halfway back to town Toothless grabs her and she's forced to take a flight with Hiccup and Toothless. By the end of that flight she's definitely showing a great deal of affection for Hiccup, including a peck on the cheek. Quite the turnaround from contempt/anger/hatred/jealousy.

* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanDoomsday'' has Superman and Lois Lane in an explicit romantic relationship, yet he still hasn't told her he's Clark Kent. In a twist on the usual dynamic, she ''knows'' who he really is, she just wants him to actually admit it to her out loud, viewing it as the last step between the two of them having a fully committed relationship. When he does so at the end of the film, she embraces him with an affectionate kiss and reminds him to give his mother a call.

* ''NotAnotherTeenMovie'' used this near the end when a girl reveals her wish for a guy to take a dump on her chest. His response is one of shock, disgust and disbelief...that no one has ever taken a dump on her chest.

* ''{{Dragaera}}'': This is essentially how Vlad Taltos got to know Cawti. After learning who she was on their second meeting (their first meeting being an attempt on his life by Cawti), he climbed directly into her bed.

[[AC: Live Action]]
* ''{{Smallville}}'': Lois was already attracted to Clark (and also already knew of his SecretIdentity), but when he finally tells her he's the Blur she runs up to him and lays a big slobbering kiss on him.
* ''{{Friends}}'': In "The One With The Prom Video," Ross had gotten ready to step in when it seemed like her prom date was going to stand her up. The date arrives at the last minute, disappointing Ross. Rachel sees this for the first time on a video played in the present day and, deeply moved, rushes over to Ross and kisses him passionately, beginning their romance in earnest.

* ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' has a variant for the GayOption. Play female, and Juhani may become attracted to you. Then, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Revan (you)]] were her rescuer and inspiration for picking up a lightsaber in the first place, as well as [[spoiler: an infamous Sith Lord who very nearly toppled the Republic]]. Her quiet crush becomes much more obvious.
* You can do this in ''JadeEmpire'' if you want to romance Silk Fox. You can start flirting with her immediately after she tacitly reveals that she's [[spoiler: the [[RebelliousPrincess Emperor's daughter]]]] in addition to being a kunoichi-esque vigilante. Bear in mind that she tried to kill you during your first meeting.

** Franchise/{{Batman}}, Franchise/{{Superman}}, and {{Spider-Man}}
*** SpiderMan is actually kind of a subversion. When the reveal happened with Mary Jane, it was MJ revealing she actually knew already, not Peter telling her, and it wasn't what sparked them getting together (they had already dated in the past). Being able to open about it did bring them closer and they did get back together shortly after that, but it wasn't like Peter being Spider-Man was the thing she loved most (if anything she'd rather just had Peter without having to worry about him getting killed).
*** UltimateSpiderMan is also a subversion as well. Mary Jane was the first person Peter told and when he revealed it to her privately, she was under the impression that Peter was going to kiss her and ask her out. So the secret did not prompt the romance as there was already a lot of romantic tension between them. Throughout the series, she made it known that she also wishes that Peter would stop being Spider-man so much so they can have normal teen-aged lives and broke up with him several times because of Spider-man. If anything, being Spider-man is the one thing Mary Jane feels like she has to tolerate from Peter because she feels like he could die at any moment. [[spoiler: And she was right.]]
