* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Part of what makes Mega-City One a dystopia is the constant surveillance by the Judges. While they do have the justification of needing to prevent genuine crime rather than just oppressing the people for the hell of it, the city is friggin' brimming with spy drones, public and covert cameras (if they wanted to monitor someone in more detail, they could easily, say, kidnap them, replace one of their eyes with a bionic implant, and then record everything they do) and other forms of SinisterSurveillance.

* Literature/TheBible has {{God}}, which makes this trope OlderThanFeudalism. Contrary to what people such as Adam, Eve, and Jonah have hoped at various times, ''nothing'' is out of sight of Heaven... according to modern interpretation. In the Old Testament, it's very clear that Yahweh is not very omniscient, with him finding out about the Original Sin being a quite hilarious instance.
