* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]'', [[spoiler: Kishou Arima]] turns out to be a downplayed version of this trope. He's secretly either going or already blind in his right eye, but manages to conceal this from all but the most observant enemies. Other than a slowing in his movements and a slight favoring of that side when fighting, he seems to have compensated enough to remain a nigh-unstoppable killing machine.

* In ''ComicBook/OldManLogan'', an elderly Hawkeye has lost his sight. However, as long as he can hear his target, his aim is just as deadly as ever.

** Pathfinder invokes this trope with the Swordmaster's Blindfold, which blinds the wearer to everything beyond weapon's reach, but does nice things for critical hits.
* In LegendOfTheFiveRings, Phoenix Champion Shiba Tsukimi is blinded by the sunlight off her opponent's blade in a duel toward the end of a war between her clan and the Scorpion. However, her connection to the Soul of Shiba and, possibly more importantly, to the Void allows her to see without seeing. As a result, she's still a powerful fighter and skilled duelist.
* Eltharion the Grim from Warhammer was briefly (c. 2001-2006) changed from his usual "grim Griffon-riding High Elf hero" persona and turned into a blind sword master (after Malekith, the Witch King of the Dark Elves, had his eyes put out as punishment for his unprecedented success in leading armies against Dark Elf cities). His original stylings were eventually reinstated, however, and the blinding incident retconned out of existence.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has the legendary Hawkeye Gough, one of Gwyn's Four Knights who shot down countless dragons with a bow and arrow (it helps that he's a giant as big as a house and his bow is as big as he is). When you meet him in ''[[DownloadableContent Artorias of the Abyss]]'', he has gone blind and [[RetiredBadass now spends his days making wood carvings]], but is still a good enough shot that he can snipe the dragon Kalameet out of the sky on his first attempt, incapacitating him enough so that you can finally have a ([[BonusBoss somewhat]]) fair fight with him.

* ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} has two options when he loses his [[SunglassesAtNight glasses]]: Keep his eyes open and [[EyeBeams kill]] [[PowerIncontinence everything in sight]], or keep them shut and ''beat the living hell out of his opponents'' while counting his footsteps so he can find his way back to where his glasses landed.
