* In a notable episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' Mrs.Puff is deemed incompetent and fired. She is replaced with a driving instructor that is determined to teach SpongeBob to drive via [[TrainingFromHell very Unorthodox methods.]] He first makes him crawl the course blindfolded, then walk the course blindfolded and drive the course blindfolded. When the moment of truth arrives he removes the blindfold and instructs SpongeBob to drive only to discover that in lieu of turning him into an expert driver he has turned blindness into a DisabilitySuperpower for SpongeBob. He can drive perfectly while blindfolded but not at all otherwise. He's arguably worse at driving with sight now than he was when Mrs. Puff was his teacher.

* ''{{Redwall}}'' is fond of this trope. [[MeaningfulName Cregga Rose Eyes]] from ''The Long Patrol'' and ''Taggerung'', as well as Simeon from ''Mariel of Redwall'' are both blind, yet can maneuver about the Abbey and know who's at their door. Possibly justified because they're animals, and therefore their senses of smell and hearing would possibly be better than a humans' anyway. Brian Jacques introduced these characters to pay homage to the students of a school for the blind that he used to visit when he would make deliveries to them during his days as a truck driver. He would tell stories to the children every time he'd come by their school, which eventually led to him becoming an author. For what it's worth, during a Q&A session he states that Simon and Cregga's almost supernatural abilities with their senses were lifted almost directly from things he observed the blind students accomplishing.

* ''Film/{{Zatoichi}}: The Blind Swordsman'' [[spoiler:slightly subverted in that the title character isn't actually blind; he just keeps his eyes closed so that the people he fights will not regard him as a threat, and to maintain a bit of challenge.]]

* In the alternate future of the Marvel universe, presented in ''EarthX,'' Bruce Banner and the Hulk are split into separate beings. Bruce reverts to a young boy who rides about on the ape-like Hulk's back. Bruce is blind but can see from the Hulk's eyes which presumeably allows him to see into the astral realms (seeing people in astral forms is one of the Hulk's little known powers).

* Tiresias the blind prophet (pictured above) makes this OlderThanFeudalism. How he ''got'' that way is an interesting story (in a nutshell, Zeus and Hera experimented on him to settle a bet; they made him live as a woman for several years, and then asked him his opinion on whether a man or a woman enjoyed sex more. Tiresias sided with Zeus (claiming that women did, actually), so Hera cursed him with blindness, but Zeus consoled him by giving him prophecy.)
