[[BiggerStick and an army]]).

* ''Literature/TheEmperorsNewClothes''. No one points out that the Emperor is in fact naked until a small child points it out (since the clothing is supposedly invisible to people incompetent at their job). However, it is more of an example of a Wise Fool than it is this trope.
