*** This is part of why the Ventrue are in charge of the Camiarilla; they have all the business and government influence necessary to handle this kind of problem.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''. Sari Sumdac quickly loses any say in how her father's company is run because there's no proof she legally exists. [[spoiler:Since she was born from a Cybertronian protoform and Issac's DNA, he had no way to claim her as his actual daughter, instead just raising her himself.]]



* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'', Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle were ponies sent to the human world in human forms. They were both able to join a high school without any documentation. This led many fans to 'conclude' Sunset pulled a KillAndReplace on her original human counterpart.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Pearl at one point mentions how she doesn't have a driver's license since she's an alien who's been on Earth for over 5,000 years. A throwaway line also makes explicit that [[InterspeciesRomance Greg and Rose]] never technically married, making Steven a HeroicBastard.

Historically this can be a justified trope. Prior to the twentieth century records tended to be sparse, difficult to retrieve, and even more difficult to verify. Without some overriding need justifying such efforts or a dissenting witness, identities and origins had to be taken at face value.

* Averted with in {{Continuum}}, a game about time travelers. Simply put, the Continuum (an organization of time travelers) ensures that time travelers moving far from home undergo extensive preparation. It's not just identification and documentation; they have to even practice the correct forms of speaking a language when they move up and down in time. Imagine you could travel time, and you had to ensure your speech pattern was period accurate to 1850 before you took a trip there. Fortunately, the Continuum actually trains its members and does the due diligence for such projects.

* Justified in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', where Rias reveals that not only is Kuoh Academy's office staffed almost entirely Devils themselves, they're horrifically outranked by herself and the StudentCouncilPresident - they can enroll, or employ, any immortals they like when they have an entire administration willing to fudge the appropriate paperwork. It's also shown that powerful devils can hypnotize humans into forgetting what they saw, or at least thinking it's so normal they never comment on it again. Except Issei's parents, who - apart from when his mother caught him [[NotWhatItLooksLike naked in bed with Rias]] - appear to be [[ParentalObliviousness weird-proof]].

* Averted in ''Manga/CityHunter''. Ryo is legally dead since he was three and the aircraft he was on with his parents crashed, and has returned to Japan as a stowaway on a ship. Because of this he doesn't legally exist, and can't hold a real job, administer his own money (Kaori does it for him), or marrying.
