For sure. It's not uncommon for you to need two pragmas, e.g. flake8 and coverage, but it's pretty rare to need those *plus* mypy. It does happen though.
And while I agree it's better to fix the problem, there are lots of reasons why you can't. Multiple-version support in libraries is one common reason (e.g. this code path will never be taken in Python 2 and the alternative will never be taken in Python 3), bugs in the tools (false positives), etc.
