* ''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.

** 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.

A subtrope of BizarreAlienBiology. Frequently correlated with EyelessFace. Contrast BlindfoldedVision, in which someone denied their normal eyesight relies on other sensory modes, or SuperSenses, when normal human senses are enhanced. For a different sort of alien feeling, see InhumanEmotion.

Added DiffLines:

* The desman, an aquatic relative of moles, is unique among mammals in being able to smell things underwater. It blows bubbles against the surface of objects it wants to sniff, snares the now-scented bubbles with its webbed feet, and breathes them back in through its highly-flexible short trunk.

Added DiffLines:

* The Sandlings of ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' have some sort of "sand sense", and can apparently talk to it, although whether it's low-tech civillization's way of describing echolocation or something more bizarre remains to be seen.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' the long dead Lunans are believed to have seen through echolocation. The Jovians can smell certain dangerous gas pockets, an important ability on Jupiter.

* Compared to many other animals, humans are almost entirely lacking any sense of smell. While dogs can smell about 100 times better than humans, the sense of smell of bears is over 2,000 times as good, which allows them to detect and find dead animals from tens of miles away.

* In ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}'' the monsters are capable of sensing [[spoiler: the distortions in reality caused by Patterson tech]].
