* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Steven has a habit of doing this to Lapis Lazuli when he wants to surprise her with a present. As she's twice as tall as he is, she helps him out by blindfolding herself with her (translucent) wings. It's as adorable as it is silly.

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Lois Lane and her photographer are black-hooded when going to interview a rebel leader. [[spoiler:Turns out the photographer is a CIA agent carrying a TrackingDevice. And later when Lois is kidnapped by Lex Luthor's men, they make no attempt at this trope, ferrying her by helicopter directly to the Lexcorp building, as the plan is that Superman will turn up and save her anyway.]]

* A LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek told the story of a young woman married to a mafia man. While he was in hiding, she would drive to a local restaurant where she would be met by his associates and blindfolded before being driven to his secret location. The explanation for this was "if you don't know where you're going, you can't tell anyone", namely the cops looking to interrogate her in order to find out where her husband was.

* ''Discworld/NightWatch'' has the History Monks blindfold Vimes to bring him to his temple so they can explain just [[TimeTravel what happened to him.]] [[spoiler:Vimes gets around it by "reading" the street through his feet, since he is so familiar with the city that he can tell the difference between the different types of paving, which lets him find his way back to the temple.]] [[GenreSavvy Lu-Tze]] actually bets that this would happen.

-->'''Sherlock Holmes:''' As to where I am, I was, admittedly, lost for a moment, between Charing Cross and Holborn, but I was saved by the bread shop on Saffron Hill. The only baker to use a certain French glaze on their loaves - a Brittany sage. After that, the carriage forked left, then right, and then the tell-tale bump at the Fleet Conduit. And as to who you are, that took every ounce of my not-inconsiderable experience. The letters on your desk were addressed to a Sir Thomas Rotherham. Lord Chief Justice, that would be the official title. Who you * really* are is, of course, another matter entirely. Judging by the sacred ox on your ring, you're the secret head of the Temple of the Four Orders in whose headquarters we now sit, located on the northwest corner of St. James Square, I think. As to the mystery, the only mystery is why you bothered to blindfold me at all.

* At the end of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Anna leads a blind-folded Kristoff through the streets of Arendelle to show him a surprise. She accidentally leads him into a pole along the way.
* Minion in ''{{WesternAnimation/Megamind}}'' kidnaps Roxanne with KnockoutGas, then puts a bag over her head when she starts to wake up, so she won't know where she is. Since this [[SeenItAll isn't the first time this has happened]], she's more concerned with Megamind failing to wash the bag between kidnappings than with actually being kidnapped.
