Added DiffLines:

** Happened several times in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'':
*** The Sinister Six unmasked him once. Fortunately, Peter's powers were on the fritz at the time, so they thought Peter was just pretending to be Spider-Man.
*** Eddie Brock found out the truth when the Venom symbiote bonded to him since Peter was the symbiote's previous host.
*** Peter intentionally unmasked himself in one episode to a [[spoiler:terminally ill]] little girl as a parting gift after she helped him.
*** After rescuing Mary Jane from yet another threat as Spider-Man, he couldn't hold himself back anymore and declared his love for her. Mary rejected him saying she was already in love with Peter Parker. After hearing this, Peter decided it was time to reveal the truth. She took it pretty well after the initial shock and they eventually got married. [[spoiler:Too bad she was actually a clone of the real Mary Jane. Even worse, one with CloningDegeneration...]]

* 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.

{{Superhero}}es often have a SecretIdentity which they conceal from the world, or perhaps just secretly engage in heroics. They do it for lots of reasons: maybe to keep themselves or their loved ones safe, and so they keep them willfully ignorant. But when you do that, you’re likely to run into some complications. Sooner or later, friends, family and dates are going to wonder why you keep running out on them. You’ll find yourself missing school and work, since crime doesn’t exactly let you keep regular hours. Eventually, you might found your [[BruceWayneHeldHostage civilian identity]] held captive, with no way for the 'hero' to show up. So it can be tough to keep that secret identity, well... secret.

* 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.
