* ''MuramasaTheDemonBlade'' by Creator/{{Vanillaware}} has the protagonists appear to give these glances periodically whenever they run for a period of time, [[SubvertedTrope but this can be interpreted]] as them looking out for enemies, who pop up out of nowhere when encountered (barring the locations where they're already in place on the map). More to the point, in an odd fashion, the [[GagBoobs extremely busty]] [[{{Kitsune}} Kongiku]] randomly gives an Aside Glance and sways her body ([[{{Gainaxing}} which also jiggles her breasts]]) for no apparent reason whenever she's idle.

* Franchise/{{Superman}}. Through much of the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]], he would end a story by giving the reader a wink, usually when one of his supporting cast made a clueless remark about his SecretIdentity.
** ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'' would be the last time he does it. At least for the pre-''Man of Steel'' version.

The trope has its roots in the "aside", a trope from the European dramatic tradition that had characters making one-line comments to one another which are unheard by the other characters. Originally this was used to undercut dramatic tension but was turned around over time to allow for serious usage, in plays such as ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''. Characters also began to make remarks to the audience or to themselves rather than to other characters. This was modified into the silent glance, which was used in stage comedy routines and subsequently found its way into the films of ''Creator/LaurelAndHardy'' and other movie comedians, thus making it OlderThanTelevision at least. The speaking version still exists, too, in various contexts, including comics; see AsideComment. Compare FourthWallPsych and MeaningfulLook.
