* In an episode of ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', John is trapped in a lab room. A hugely bright light is shined in his eyes for about half a minute, with his attempts to get away from it useless, and then, when the lights go almost completely dark, the afterimage of the light prevents him from seeing anything. Which is a problem when [[spoiler: the demon hound is apparently in the room with him, about to attack.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/XComEnemyUnknown'' and ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' have flashbang grenades available from the early game onwards. In both games being hit by a flashbang dramatically reduces the target's aim and mobility for a few turns. In ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' being disoriented by a flashbang also disables most special abilities such as a Sectoid's Mindspin.
