* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick's'' Sangwaan wears a blindfold at all times. Her job is to act as Azure City's EnemyDetectingRadar by way of [[TrueSight True Seeing]], providing detailed intelligence on incoming enemy forces, and detecting invisibility. [[spoiler:Sadly, she is too slow to use her power to see [[BigBad Xykon]]'s DracoLich until he was right in front of her, and so is killed by being thrown off into the distance.]]

* ''SamuraiJack'' does this, when Jack is nearly killed by three blind archers with superhuman accuracy guarding a wish-granting well. Cue flashback to Jack as a young man learning to fight a group of monks based on hearing alone. After blindfolding himself and spending a minute or two listening to the forest, he's ready to 'fight on their level'.

* ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} of the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' has edged into this on occasion, usually after losing his [[PowerLimiter visor]] in circumstances where [[PowerIncontinence "blast everything in sight"]] is not a viable option. Notable examples include the occasion when he beat up six men with his eyes shut... while counting every step he took so he could find his way back to his fallen glasses, and his first confrontation with Cassandra Nova.
