* The ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd Megazine'' had a story where a blind Mega-City One citizen stumbled upon Judge Fear sitting on a park bench but didn't notice that he was an alien ghoul and sat down next to him. They had a fairly pleasant conversation while the bodies of joggers, families, and Judges who got too close to Fear's deadly gaze kept piling up in front of them.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'':
** Judge Death successfully hid inside a Mega-City One apartment for several weeks because the old landlady was almost completely blind and deaf. He seemed to be a bit amused by her obliviousness and ignored her, but her other tenant wasn't so lucky.

* In Franchise/{{Batman}} vs Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'', an old blind tramp who looks a lot like Creator/StanLee advises the Hulk that maybe puny humans would stop trying to hurt him if he showed a little kindness. Hulk thinks he's right. [[spoiler:{{Subverted| trope}} when the tramp is actually a disguised Batman, who needs the Hulk to go with the Joker ([[{{it makes sense in context}} long story]]).]]

* ''Film/TheFaceBehindTheMask'', a '40s B-Movie starring PeterLorre, centers on a Hungarian immigrant who is horribly disfigured in a fire, and turns to a life of crime since nobody will hire him. He [[HeelFaceTurn changes his ways]] after falling in love with a blind girl he runs into on the street, but [[spoiler: she is killed by his former hired goons, who are envious of his new life]]. Needless to say, [[TakingYouWithMe he doesn't take this well.]]

* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'', Wulfric is a [[FaceOfAThug demonic-looking Blade who is nonetheless very friendly]]. One Heart-to-Heart scene can result in him guiding an elderly lady with poor eyesight back to her house, while the townspeople look on aghast; she, on the other hand, is quite happy to be helped by (what she assumes to be) such a strapping young man.

* In Creator/RobertSilverberg's short story "To See the Invisible Man" (which was also adapted as an episode of the '80s ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' revival), a man sentenced to a year of "societal" invisibility manages a brief conversation with a blind man, who ends up rejecting him just like everybody else. Though, in this case, the blind man could have been arrested for talking to him. That's the point of the sentence, after all (to the point that the "invisible" man was able to waltz into a women's spa and gawk at them, and they can't do anything about it).

* In 1980's ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "To See the Invisible Man", Mitchell Chaplin is punished by being given an implant that means others have to ignore him and act as if he was not there. The only person to treat him decently during his sentence is a blind man who cannot see the implant. The blind man is quite angry when he learns that Mitchell has tried to trick him into breaking the law by acknowledging his existence.

* Buu of ''Anime/DragonballZ'' meets a blind kid who didn't know his appearance. After realizing he wasn't frightened, Buu figured out the problem and used his magic to heal the boy's eyes. Afterwards the boy was very grateful, and still didn't find anything unusual about Buu's appearance because he had lived among anthropomorphic animals his entire life. Buu doesn't kill him, a hint that he isn't a bad guy. But it's practically confirmed that the evil Buu kills this kid later, since [[OmnicidalManiac he killed everybody on Earth]].

* Hanako Ikezawa from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' was left disfigured (but not horribly so) in an fire. Lilly, her best friend, is blind since birth. However it's actually reversed, as with her [[PhysicalScarsPsychologicalScars severe emotional scars to go along with her physical ones]], Hanako seems to be the only one who thinks that she's a monster [[spoiler:being shunned by the other kids at the orphanage where she grew up after the house fire that killed her parents and scarred her does that to a person]]. While not everyone is repulsed by her appearance, many of those who are not, such as Hisao, often act awkwardly while trying to avoid looking at her scars, and Hisao suspects that as that does not apply to Lilly, it was easier for her to befriend Hanako.
