** Film/{{Thor}}'s (and subsequently the Destroyer's) appearance on Earth in New Mexico confirms to SHIELD, and certain civilians, that aliens exist. This sparks the need for SHIELD to pursue higher forms of weapon technology to combat extraterrestrial threats. To that end, they hijack [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger leftover Tesseract-powered HYDRA weapons from World War II]] and are in the process of reverse-engineering them when Loki shows up. While the rest of the world knew about bits of the weird stuff already, they get a rude awakening to the scale of it when [[Film/TheAvengers2012 New York hosts an alien invasion]].

** This becomes a running theme of "Phase Two" of the MCU. Everybody knows who the Avengers are, that aliens exist, and that the Norse Gods live on a {{Magitek}} city floating in space.

* In ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'' it is increasingly fraying and by the time of ''The Annihilation Score'' it has become public knowledge that people are appearing with superpowers, though it's still kept secret ''why'' this is happening.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' deals with the fallout of the unmasking that occurred in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. The show reveals that the Avengers and their supporting characters are not the only superhumans in the world, and that ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} has a massive index of every known human with paranormal abilities. In the episode "Girl in the Flower Dress", it's also shown that S.H.I.E.L.D. actively suppresses this information to prevent the public from panicking. After the events of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', [[spoiler:all of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s secrets, including the Index, are now available to the public]], meaning the world is now aware that the Avengers aren't an isolated example.
** 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.

* This is standard operating procedure for most comic book universes, including the Franchise/DCUniverse and Franchise/MarvelUniverse. Sometimes there are "Year One" type of stories that take place before everybody accepts that a man can fly or that there are mutants, but those are the exception.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': By ''Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince'', the {{Masquerade}} might not be broken, but it is starting to crack. Giants are roaming up and down the countryside, Death Eaters are terrorizing Muggles more openly, and Muggles can even sense the spike in Dementor levels. The Ministry of Magic has its hand more than full running around modifying memories.

* For practitioners of Wicca, this is exactly what happened in real life when the Wicca movement became public in Britain around the 50s thanks to Gerald Gardner and later it became a popular religion in the Western world. It must be taken into account that, for Wiccans, magic does exist as a real thing in the universe as the existence of some magical beings like Elementals.
