* Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} has, over the course of over 50 years, had several unmaskings; whether it was the Green Goblin finding out his arch-enemy was his son's best friend, Aunt May finding a sleeping & battered Peter with his destroyed costume on the floor, and the various unmaskings to other heroes in the Marvel Universe, before culminating with him willingly unmasking himself as Peter Parker during the ''ComicBook/CivilWar''. And then [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay literally making a deal with the Devil, after revealing his identity gets his Aunt May shot, to erase his marriage from history in exchange for Aunt May's life & his secret identity]]. He has since unmasked ''again'' to the Fantastic Four, and the post-''SecretInvasion'' New Avengers.

* Parodied in ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons Comics/Radioactive Man'' crossover, "When Bongos Collide". The dim-witted Radioactive Man, whom Bart has materialized from his comic into the "real world", says in Barts hearing "...or my name isn't Claude Kane III!...Uh, which it ''isn't'', of course." Bart resists the urge to tell him he already knows his secret identity from the comics.

* Happened once a season in ''Anime/SailorMoon''. Except for the fourth, because all the main characters knew each other's identities at that point. Frankly, how ANYONE remains oblivious to thier identities when they maintain the same features and hairstyles owes Clark Kent's glasses a fiver...

* In the prequel comics of ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' had Superman reveal his identity to the world in front of the United Nations building as he begins his quest for "peace". He later attempts to reveal Batman's on TV, but when Bats stops that signal, he quickly goes to the one thing he apparently can't stop: Twitter.

Overall 'unmasking' someone is widely regarded as a bad move, breaking one of the unwritten rules that keeps supervillain/superhero conflicts on a manageable scale. As with Skitter and Empire 88 it makes the villains desperate and in the case of a hero can ruin their personal life.

* Happens in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' when [[spoiler:Coil]] leaks the civilian identities of every member of the Nazi supervillain group Empire 88 to the local media. This backfires ''spectacularly.'' Used again when [[spoiler: Dragon and Defiant attack supervillain Skitter in her civilian identity at a local public school.]]
