** UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud famously defined and contextualized this concept as the "three humiliations" to human self-esteem:
--> ''"Humanity has in the course of time had to endure from the hands of science two great outrages upon its naive self-love. The first was when it realized that our earth was not the center of the universe, but only a tiny speck in a world-system of a magnitude hardly conceivable...The second was when biological research robbed man of his peculiar privilege of having been specially created, and relegated him to a descent from the animal world...accomplished in our own time upon the instigation of Charles Darwin, Wallace, and their predecessors, and not without the most violent opposition from their contemporaries. But man's craving for grandiosity is now suffering the third and most bitter blow from present-day psychological research which is endeavoring to prove to the ego of each one of us [[GoMadFromTheRevelation that he is not even master in his own house]], but that he must remain content with the veriest scraps of information about what is going on unconsciously in his own mind. We psycho-analysts were neither the first nor the only ones to propose to mankind that they should look inward; but it appears to be our lot to advocate it most insistently and to support it by empirical evidence which touches every man closely."''

* In the ''Fanfic/AftermathOfTheGames'' universe, one of the major subplots is the human world eventually getting wise to the existence of magic and Equestria itself. The various magical battles that have taken place have been written off as fancy special effects, but Sunset realizes that people will put 2 and 2 together, and so they must prepare a controlled first contact. [[spoiler: With the Humane 7 starting to gain magical powers of their own, and a criminal syndicate gaining interest in magic itself, the window of controlled first contact only gets smaller and smaller by the day]].

By ''TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', the Autobots are subjects of news coverage, [[spoiler: Sentinel Prime]] is able to contact the UN to order them to [[spoiler: kick the Autobots off Earth]], and Simmons debates with Creator/BillOReilly on whether or not the US should support the Autobots (poll results show that the US would feel safer without them).
* ''Film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction'' has the government outright ''murdering'' Transformers and making their own.

** And contrary to popular believe, Darwin wasn't the first. The idea that humans and animals were biologically related was already postulated in Ancient Greece, China and by Islamic philosophers like Al-Jahiz and Ibn Khardun, also there are scientists who predated Darwin developing the concept of evolution as in the modern sense like Lamark and Bonet. Darwin did discover the process of natural selection and made the most coherent --at that point-- scientific framework on how evolution worked. In this case the unmasking was gradual with Darwin playing the role of the big reveal.

* In ''FanFic/{{Sluagh}}'', the Masquerade is already seriously cracking in Ireland, where wizards are openly working for the militias. And this is the ultimate goal of Diabhal Dubh, who wants to take over Ireland by building up a united muggle and magical army.
* The ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' crossover fic ''Fanfic/BloodAndRevolution'' is about youkai and vampires (which most of the main characters have become). The masquerade is shattered in the 1940s [[{{WorldWarII}} for some reason]].
* Some fanfics for ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' imagine what would happen if the the world at large learned the truth about the Nations. Usually, [[HumansAreBastards it doesn't go very well for them]].
* 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.
* The Fanfic/HogwartsExposedTimeline, a ''Harry Potter'' fanfic/alternate history on Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom, revolves around the Statute of Secrecy being irreparably breached and the Wizarding world deciding to cut their losses and come forward to the non-magical world, and the repercussions of this such magic now being allowed to influence Muggle society while the majority of witches and wizards are exposed to electronics and the like for the first time.

** This is Pandora's [[InvokedTrope long-term goal]], which she starts by [[spoiler:appearing on the evening news in her CreepyChild form]]. She then proceeds to [[spoiler:empower random people with magic]], so as to cause as much chaos as possible in a way the {{Masquerade}} cannot cover up. While the former only brings weirdness hunters to town, the latter is proving effective, especially when the superheroes started showing up to save people. [[spoiler:In fact, it was so effective that the head of the local MIB office essentially ''gave up'', admitting on live television that it was all real]]. Her reasons for doing all this are simple: Her son, [[spoiler:Raven]], is an elf, a half-immortal who is not allowed to interfere in situations that do not directly involve magic. Therefore, she is creating a world where ''everything'' directly involves magic. That, and [[PrescienceIsPredictable she's bored]].

** It turns out that neither of these have any chance of working. [[spoiler:Magic itself is intelligent and wants to be used--but not by ''everyone''. If too many people learn how to obtain magic, magic will change the way that it works for humans to render all that moot. Pandora's plan got close enough to working that magic came within a hair's breadth of changing things, but did send an avatar to inform Pandora ([[ComplexityAddiction in the most convoluted way possible]]) of what was going on. Pandora agreed to fix things, but not before yelling about "no good cheating magic" and insisting that Tedd had the right idea]].
