* In Timothy W. Long's ''Literature/AtTheBehestOfTheDead'', not only has the supernatural been reviled, the necromancer main character, Phineas, is the one who made it happen. He is the sole entity responsible, and is held as such by the rest of his kind.

* The ''Series/DetectiveInspectorChen'' series is set at some point after the creatures of Myth/ChineseMythology became public knowledge. There is official communication between the mundane government and the CelestialBureaucracy, which even leads to a StrangeCopInAStrangeLand plot where the strange cop is an enforcer from Hell.

**ElGoonishShive is a weird case; the big secret was [[spoiler:according to the MIB head who admitted its existence on live TV]] never that magic existed. The secret that everyone was (and still are) taking so much trouble to conceal was that magic is ''easy.'' EGS has a very forgiving and intuitive magic system, with spells reflecting the person that aquires them under most circumstances...meaning that the real monsters usually get the most destructive and powerful spells. [[spoiler:It's gotten to the point that The AnthropomorphicPersonification of Magic Itself is planning to change the rules.]]

** An example occurs within the series: until they were forced into the open, no one (except possibly a few high-ranking HYDRA leaders) had any idea about the existence of the Inhumans thinking the odd one they ran across was simply some random superpowered human. Following the events of Season 2, knowledge of Inhumans and that aliens were involved with them is widespread (if not completely understood) around the world.

** For much of ''Anime/TransformersArmada'', the characters felt it necessary to conceal the Transformers from humans (for some reason). However, in the sequel series, ''TransformersEnergon'', the Transformers' existence has been revealed to the people of Earth and the two races now live in harmony.

* {{Literature/Vampirocracy}}: The world had TheMasquerade until the vampires decided that humanity definitely needed to be supervised, and conquered the world, ripping the mask to shreds.

* The gay rights movement could be considered a downplayed example. People knew that homosexuality existed, but society at large was pretty ignorant about the topic. Moreover, members of sexual minorities tended to stay in the closet to avoid bigotry and persecution, meaning other people were unaware of just how many gay people there actually were. The common societal perception was that all gay people were creepy perverts and sexual predators, so many straight people assumed they'd never met a gay person even though they probably had. But after the gay rights movement entered the public eye, the {{masquerade}} was {{broken|Masquerade}} and people became more aware of the gay community. Later on, the transgender rights movement was a more extreme example of this trope. People several decades ago didn't necessarily know what ''transgender'' and ''transsexual'' even meant, but nowadays transgender topics are all over the news (although there's still plenty of ignorance about the trans community).

* While the actual unmasking happened during [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} the movie]], ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' took place in a world where ghosts, demons and ancient gods have all been proven real and are common knowledge. Things haven't actually changed much: when faced with a supernatural problem at the start of an episode, civilians typically throw up their hands and say "[[BystanderSyndrome call the Ghostbusters, let them deal with it]]."
