* The protagonist's name in ''LayerCake'' goes unmentioned for the whole film. At the end, just before [[spoiler:he is shot dead on his front steps]], he addresses the camera directly and teases us with the possibility of mentioning it: "My name? To know that, you'd have to be as clever as me."

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', after you fall down a waterfall, a mysterious voice calls out to you in the darkness, and in very slow ScrollingText says "My name is..." just before the screen whites out completely.

* ''Series/ThePrisoner'' is rife with them, even aside from those "answered" in its infamous GainAxEnding. WordOfGod said that anything meaningful enough to answer has been, and everything else, like who ran the prison or the specifics of Number Six's resignation, are utterly unimportant.

* In the ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' novels, Bink's talent (immunity from magical harm) invokes this trope as part its power. Even if Bink himself tries to tell someone, his talent will intervene and cause an interruption (like a sudden dragon attack or a bout of sneezing). It also always invokes itself to protect him in the most indirect way possible. This is so that no enemy can figure out that a ''non''-magical weapon is the only way to harm him. Of course, Xanth being Xanth, virtually everything ''is'' magical in some way, so that would mean Bink's talent is a bit on the paranoid side. While Bink is supposedly vulnerable to non-magical attack, we never see one of those really harm him, either. I always figured that the "magical harm" qualification was another manifestation of his power to protect him from ''all'' harm, since people who knew about that wouldn't bother attacking him with magic, and would instead use mundane attacks, and they were even easier to protect him from. Except that one of the methods his talent used to protect him was to get him exiled from Xanth, where his talent would not work but where it would also be impossible for him to be harmed by magic. Then again, he didn't actually ''get'' exiled...

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'', we never get to hear El Chavo's real name, nor who he lives with in apartment number eight (most people think he lives in the patio barrel). He does get asked a few times, but whenever he's about to say it, another character enters the scene and interrupts him.

* Double-subverted at the very end of ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', when Doc finally removes his mask... offscreen. But then, the last few pages TimeSkip to a hospital, where a doctor who resembles him (same eye and eyebrow color) appears with gunk on his face. He cleans himself off, and his face is shown... and then he meets another doctor. The second guy just finished putting a nameplate on his door that says [[spoiler:"Patrick Goodrich"]] so it's undoubtedly Doc and, of course, we don't get to see what he looks like after all.

** In the civil war story arc of {{Image}} comics, Serpentor removes Cobra Commander's helmet only to reveal a balaclava underneath. He lampshades a bit by making fun of CC's paranoia issues. And then the [[spoiler:helmet explodes, killing Serpentor and proving that Cobra Commander is CrazyPrepared.]]

* In the second-to-last part of the Gooey Bomb story on ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'', Dedede suggests taking Meta Knight's mask off while he's asleep, to which he wakes up, and threatens them. They ignore this, and the camera shows the back of Meta Knight, stabbing the Gooey Bomb as Adeline looks at Meta Knight's face with an astonished look. In the Turnabout Kirby story, Meta Knight references the indecent and shows the judge the "scars" from it, although again the camera shows the back of him, although the judge looks very disgusted. However, Meta Knight without his mask has been seen clearly in many Kirby games, [[spoiler: looking exactly like Kirby's, but with a blue face and yellow eyes.]] although the look could be different in [=BitF=]'s case.
