* The Progenitors in ''VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'' can sense and manipulate a variety of fields, including electromagnetism. They communicate through "altering," too. While humans generate patterns of sounds, progenitors alter existing background noise and it's how they alter those sounds that determines meaning.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', [[Characters/SecretSix King Shark]] has an enhanced version of a shark's electrosense, which works even on land, although the only person he's shown being able to track this way is Barry, who tends to give off a lot of electricity when running. So Barry might look like a giant flare to King Shark, even at a distance and inside a dwelling. During their climactic battle, Barry creates an electric maelstrom in the water that confuses King Shark's senses and then zaps him with lightning bolts until he's stunned.

* ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'': dragons have some form of magic-based sense that works akin to echolocation - their roars resonate through the ethereal, letting them detect their prey.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Windrunners like Kaladin have an ill-defined ability to sense wind currents, which is a passive ability separate from the more active Surges. Not only does this aid them in their NotQuiteFlight, but it allows them to predict the flow of battle in ways other people cannot match. In [[Literature/WordsOfRadiance the second book]], [[spoiler:this almost gets Kaladin killed in his first fight with Szeth. He lets his windsense guide his strikes, only to be taken completely off guard when Szeth easily counters his move. This implies that the Windrunner Honorblade that Szeth is using grants this same ability--or maybe Szeth is just ''that'' good]].

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'''s Kryptonian senses don't care for puny laws of physics. She has at least half-dozen of kinds of super-vision (telescopic, microscopic, X-Ray...) as well as super-hearing.
** In ''Comicbook/SupergirlRebirth'', Kara hears what is happening on Earth in real time while she is standing on the surface of the Sun. And she uses her microscopic vision on Lar-On to observe his genes and determine that his genetic makeup has been completely mangled by Red-K poisoning.
--->'''Supergirl:''' I can see his genes.

Added DiffLines:

** One novel includes scenes from the perspective of a thranx ''larva'', who is baffled by the concepts of color vision and scent: senses that don't develop in thranx until adulthood and thus, seem like this trope to him.
