* The animated ''PunkyBrewster'' episode "Pretty Ugly" had Glomer turning Margaux's face into a glomley face (a glomley is a leprechaun helper in Glomer's world) just before attending an important upscale party. Punky has to impersonate Margaux until her face returns to normal, but Margaux finds out. Eventually, Margaux's face returns to normal, which she doesn't know yet (she's on the verge of wringing Punky's neck), and when Avery Bigelow--the kid who invited Margaux--enters, Margaux tearfully entreats "Don't look at me! I'm ugly!" Punky holds a shiny pan to Margaux so she can see she is back to normal.

Not to be confused with the remarkably similar, defensive stock phrase said when everyone in the room labels a character as the most likely culprit of some misdeed of which he's not (entirely) guilty by leveling him an accusing stare -- "Don't look at '''me!'''" rather than "Don't '''look''' at me!" -- which is... [[NotMeThisTime another trope entirely]]. Nor is it to be confused with the also similar stock phrase where the characters are trying to figure out an explanation for a confusing or mysterious situation, and one who is GenreSavvy, believed to have special insight, or simply intelligent enough to figure such things out is looked to, only to respond this way. It should also not be confused with a situation where the characters are trying to [[GotVolunteered single out a patsy]] to undertake [[WhoWillBellTheCat an unpleasant but necessary task]], leading the victim to offer this response.

This even applies to photographs and video (but not drawings) that show its face, including one instance of a photograph where its face made up a grand total of ''4 pixels'' and had been in somebody's house for ''years'' without incident because nobody had looked at those ''exact'' 4 pixels before.
