* in the 2009 ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' movie Holmes has his head covered and is taken to a secret location... however [[SherlockScan being Sherlock Holmes]] he easily reconstructs a turn-by-turn account of their route.

* ''Literature/CharlieWilsonsWar''. A Pakistani official is blindfolded when taken to the CIA's SpySchool. He takes offense, given that he's already running the CIA's proxy war in Afghanistan for them.

* ''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.

* In the books, ''ModestyBlaise'' occasionally gets the blindfold treatment - which doesn't help, as she seems to have an unerring sense of location.
