* ''Fanfic/WaitingIsWorthIt'': When Izuku accidentally losing full control of his quirk in the Tournament Arc, gravity is cancelled out in the entire stadium. This brings up various concerns, as not only did everyone in the stadium witness first hand Izuku's raw power, but by extension the rest of the world through broadcasting. This is seen as a problem, as Izuku's mother, All Might, [=UA=] and by extension the entire Japanese government has been trying to keep Izuku's power a secret for fear of any villain wanting to use his powers despite having grown up to defend himself. At best, he would be seen as nothing more than an asset like all other celebrities, at worst other governments would see him as a weapon of mass destruction.

* 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-''ComicBook/SecretInvasion'' New Avengers.

* Scarecrow reveals Batman's identity as Bruce Wayne in the climax of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', though he's less interested in Batman's identity, and more interested in making all of Gotham experience true fear, by [[HopeCrusher destroying their symbol of hope.]] Once the cowl comes off, Scarecrow's reaction is along the lines of "Bruce Wayne? [[DidntSeeThatComing Well, that's not who I expected.]]"

* Years ago, Ms. Might of the ''WhateleyUniverse'' had her husband killed, her children terrorized, and her house destroyed when an old enemy learned her secret identity. Now that she's Lady Astarte and the headmistress of Whateley Academy, she's a real stickler on the 'secret identity' and 'no threatening students' families' rules.

A frequent plot point in the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse are the lengths to which Paperinik (DonaldDuck's superhero/antihero alter ego) goes to protect his secret identity. Sometimes he fails, at which point whoever found out his identity [[LaserGuidedAmnesia is fed a memory-erasing candy]].

* Happens frequently in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fanfiction. Usually between the two heroes (who have a MutualMasquerade in canon) but occasionally with their respective friends or families. There are also a few notable public reveal stories, such as ''Fanfic/SpotsOff''.

** He actually revealed his identity to Gyro in the second story. That's where the candies come from: Gyro, not trusting himself with the secret, revealed the memory-erasing candies' existance and took one. Since then, whenever the situation forced Paperinik to reveal his identity Gyro would take one of the candies as soon he didn't need to know anymore-or, as revealed in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', every time he found out on his own.
** Mickey actually knows, having deduced it. [[SecretSecretKeeper He never told anyone, not even to Donald]].
** A few characters in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' know and, for various reasons, cannot have their memories of it erased. This actually showed why Paperinik is so protective of his identity: a BadFuture had the time-travelling criminal the Gryphon frame him as a terrorist and expose his identity, ruining his life and forcing his family and loved ones to leave Duckburg in shame.

** A ''DisneyAdventures'' comic featured a villain who became TheDreaded among superheroes because of his knack at unmasking them. All of his victims retired in shame. When he targets Darkwing, however, Gosalyn reminds them all why they became heroes in the first place, and they team up to take him down.
