* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_Throat_(Watergate) "Deep Throat"]] was the a name given to the informant who provided information to ''Washington Post'' reporters to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein during the Watergate Scandal. His identity was a secret known only to them that they swore they would not reveal until his death, and for years, news agencies and other organizations could only propose theories as to who he was and what his motivation was. It wasn't until 2005 that Deep Throat was revealed to be FBI Associate Director Mark Felt, who came forward on his own.

* Zer0 from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}''. What's his real name? What is he doing on Pandora? What does he look like? [[AmbiguouslyHuman Is he even human]], or is he an alien or a robot? Nobody really knows. ''Not even'' [[HypercompetentSidekick Jack's subordinates]] really know. And if the devs have any say in it, nobody ever will.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'', the Dark Angels Space Marines are served by the indigenous population of The Rock, the Watchers In The Dark. They are covered head to toe in robes, and have never let anyone see what's underneath. Ever. Games Workshop's official models for them don't have heads, just hollow hoods. Librarians can't probe them because they resist all psychic powers and forms of Warp contact. Are they aliens? Undead spirits of the Fallen forced to serve penance? The latter is unlikely, considering that people of Caliban have encounters with them before the Fallen are even conceived of, but otherwise... they're the only ones with answers, and they literally ain't talking.

* The White Shadow from ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. He's an unnamed government agent who is only ever seen by Huey Freeman (a paranoid conspiracy theorist), who gave him the nickname of "White Shadow" in the first place. The White Shadow talks to Huey, but as he's supposed to be a secret agent after all, we know nothing about his background. Huey even wonders whether the Shadow is actually a real person, or just a paranoid delusion.

** The U.L. Paper Contact from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' is an even better example: not only does he never give out his name but when Niko asks if he's worried that Niko will get caught and lead the authorities to him, the Contact claims that they're inside a building with hundreds of people matching his description and that by the time Niko rats him out to the cops, they will find an empty office "leased to a man who died in the final years of Vietnam" and a non existent phone number.

** The show also has the EnsembleDarkHorse Red-X. Originally, the Red-X persona was used by Robin to go undercover in (failed) a bid to find out Slade's real identity, but the high-tech, highly weaponized suit was later stolen from Titan's Tower by an unknown thief who uses it to commit high-end burglaries. Throughout the show, the team encounters him all of ''twice'' and they never find out who he is, or how he was able to steal the suit. WordOfGod is mum on subject, but the most common theory (though by [[EpilepticTrees no-means the only]]) is that he is really Jason Todd.
--> '''Raven:''' Face it. Red-X could be anyone. Anyone smart enough to find the suit, and dumb enough to take it for a joy ride.
