Note: Don't list them if there are, I just want to know if they exist.

I have noticed that there are several posts on meta asking for secret badges. This answer suggests they are being considered, but have they been implemented?

    If it's secret, why should we tell? – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard May 27 '15 at 10:45

    @ShadowWizard I'm asking if aliens exist, not where they are. – Mutantoe May 27 '15 at 10:47
  • lol, answer is the same: official answer will always be "no", but in reality, they might just exist. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard May 27 '15 at 10:48
  • @ShadowWizard This question should probably be directed towards Jon Skeet, since he has all the badges, whether they exist or not. – Mutantoe May 27 '15 at 11:16
  • Actually he might have the most amount of badges, but most of them are for answers - I'm sure others got way more distinct badges than him. :) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard May 27 '15 at 11:35
  • I have several secret badges. The problem is that if they are displayed in your badge count, then they are no longer secret. So only the users who have them can see them. Here's an example from my account – user1228 May 27 '15 at 14:32
  • @Won't, dammit, you just earned another secret badge for revealing your secret badge, didn't you? – jscs May 27 '15 at 18:21

  • There is a secret badge, but it has never been awarded. – Donald Duck Jul 13 '18 at 22:59

Since this feature request hasn't been implemented, and presumably they're still "thinking about it", I'd say the answer is no.

Further, I'd expect if there were, someone would have already been trumpeting about achieving it.

Since we've not seen that, I would take that as strong evidence of a lack. (If the badge is a secret and no one can get it, does it really exist?)
