* In the final book of the Literature/InheritanceCycle, Inheritance, during Eragon's sparring match training against Arya , Eragon gets the idea to distract Arya during the pre-duel positioning so that she focuses on him, and doesn't notice he's putting his back to the sun. It works well enough to get in a first attack, but then Arya holds him off long enough to regain her vision, and she starts to win the spar.

* Averted in ''Film/AndStarringPanchoVillaAsHimself'', in which General Pancho Villa has [[WarForFunAndProfit made a deal with Hollywood allowing them to film his battles]]. When attacking the fortress at Torreon, Villa originally intends to attack with the sun behind his troops, so the Federal defenders will be firing into the rising sun. But the primitive cameras of the day need more light, so his troops charge towards the sun and get massacred by the Federals who can see them clearly.
