* At the conclusion of the College of Winterhold questline in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the Psijic Order monks decide that [[spoiler:Ancano's attempt to control the Eye of Magnus (nearly wiping Winterhold off the map in the process)]] is proof that world is not ready for the [[spoiler:Eye of Magnus]].

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/MenInBlack Men In Black The Series]]'' the above explanation is the reason {{MIB}} stores so much alien hardware, the public is just not ready for it. They even date each item down to the year for when the world 'will' be ready.

* ''Literature/TooLikeTheLightning'': Bridger has the ability to make inanimate objects real. ''Any'' inanimate objects. The adults of Bridger's bash' keep Bridger and what they can do very, very secret. Part of this is because Bridger is still a child, but they also want to map out their ability as much as possible before revealing it to the world. Not only is it exceptionally dangerous (there's nothing preventing Bridger from taking a vial that says "world-ending plague" and making it real), but they know people won't believe it even if they see it with their own eyes.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': When Dipper takes it upon himself to show the tourists of Gravity Falls some ''real'' magic, they end up traumatized.
** To be fair to those tourists, said ''real'' magic consisted of a massive [[MixAndMatchCritter Gremlobin]]. If you looked into its eyes - which the tourists did - you lived your ''worst'' nightmares. It was basically an EldritchAbomination.

* ''[[{{Tron20}} Tron 2.0]]'' implies this trope at the end. Laser technology that can open up a [[{{Cyberspace}} whole new dimension]]? An entire civilization of artificial life forms? Human "Users" becoming {{PhysicalGod}}s worshipped by those life forms? Unfortunately, [[AGodAmI Thorne]] and [[CorruptCorporateExecutive F-Con]] exploited all of it in the [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters worst way possible]], trying to enslave the Programs and have unlimited access to state secrets, global finance, and media to rule both worlds. Jet and Alan lock down the laser and the necessary algorithims to run it ''very'' tightly after they return to analog.

* This is the main reason for TheMasquerade in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. Chao decided to get proactive and force the mages out into the open. Negi never really does come up with a reason that proves it would be a bad thing, but still fights her because he reasons that if she really had a good justification, she would need not hide anything. Towards the end of the manga, Negi decides to work towards introducing the world to magic.
** ''Manga/UQHolder'' shows that Negi succeeded.

* This is the main premise of a short story called "Literature/TheSack", about an alien creature found on an asteroid, who can answer lots of questions on all kind of topics. As the creature remarks to a human guarding him, it knows that the humanity isn't ready for the answers, and that it's likely to wreak havoc (it's quite noticeable by the end - both researchers and politicians are asking The Sack instead of thinking, and in the latter case, it's ScryVsScry). However, it's the only thing that gives it some pleasure in his loneliness after ([[LastOfItsKind the rest of its race]] has been destroyed by meteoroids). Fortunately, [[spoiler:at the end of the story, The Sack is kidnapped by a group of criminals, and once these fall victim to GoldFever, the alien is LostForever]]

* In MarvelComics, billions of years ago, the Watchers tried an experiment. They gave a primitive race the secrets of atomic power, which was an elementary science to the Watchers, but would allow the aliens to make huge advances to their society. The first advance they made was to build an interplanetary fleet with atomic warheads and go invade other planets. This resulted in other aliens killing the first aliens off in self-defense. The Watchers' reaction was to go "oops" and put their AlienNonInterferenceClause into effect.
