to:

* ''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.

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.
