* 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]]."

* At the end of ''Film/HotelTransylvania'', the monsters that have been in hiding from humans for centuries finally reveal themselves at what just so happens to be a festival populated by monster-loving nerds, who all immediately cheer in celebration at finding out monsters actually exist. By the [[Film/HotelTransylvania2 second film]], the entire world has come to acknowledge and accept monsters, even thinking of them as celebrities.

* A road project in Iceland was stopped because it could destroy the habitat of elves. In a survey conducted by the University of Iceland in 2007, 5% of Icelanders claim to have seen these beings and 55% say they are either convinced of their existence or consider them very likely

* In the ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' fanfic, ''Fanfic/WithThisRing'', despite the fact that places like Atlantis and heroes like Doctor Fate were around, very few people believed in magic. Then Klarion became responsible for hundreds of thousands of death and they couldn't ignore it. Then Orange Lantern reveals to the world that the afterlife and gods are very real in an interview with Cat Grant, citing how Teth Adom was resurrected from the dead and given his power. This is notable after Wonder Woman (made from Olympian Gods) had been around for ages and a literal HellOnEarth scenario.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has slowly become this after "Society of the Blind Eye", as the titular society is no longer acting as a MemoryWipingCrew; In "Northwest Mansion Mystery", Dipper's encounter with a giant bat makes newspaper front pages, leading him to be hired by Pacifica to exorcise a ghost. The final episode hints that [[spoiler: after Bill Cipher is destroyed and Weirdmageddon stopped]], the citizens have learned to integrate the abnormal into their daily lives; Farmer Sprott is seen chasing eyeball bats out of his barn, ("Git outta there, you ornery critters!") and zombies slowly rise from their graves outside the Valentino funeral home, which Robbie's parents take in stride, even casually asking Robbie to "Fetch us the sawed-off shotgun".

* ''Fanfic/OldManHenderson'': In the final session, the cultists have given up completely on the masquerade, and start a magic-fueled, abomination-riddled, zombie-raising civil turf war right on the streets. It's explicitly mentioned the military and police start flipping their shit "due to all the blatant WIZARDRY going on", and have hell trying to keep it all under control.
