* On the cosmic end of the scale, ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} frequently does this in his throne room, gazing out at his dystopian kingdom. Case in point, [[http://comicsalliance.com/files/2013/04/darkseid02.jpg this]] one-page story from ''ComicBook/TheSupermanAdventures'':
-->'''Desaad:''' What do you think about when you see everything you have accomplished on Apokolips, great Darkseid? What monumental thoughts pass through your head?\\
'''Darkseid:''' It's not enough.

** When he isn't looking at you with his creepy, creepy eyes, The Illusive Man does this a lot. Can't blame him though, his view is awesome. He's looking out at a dying star, which has to be seen to be believed. He continues this habit in the third game, and is ''very'' annoyed when you're in his chair looking at the view.
** Anderson is also fond of staring out over the presidium, although in his case he's wearily leaning on his balcony railing rather than standing tall.

Usually intended to convey that the character is so badass he can't be bothered to look at his audience, this is sometimes used to indicate an internal conflict of some sort (depending on his facial expression). Also has the bonus of keeping his identity a secret, up until the ChairReveal or [[EmergingFromTheShadows Shadow Reveal]]
