* In ''TheFlash'', during the "Death of Iris Allen" story arc, Barry discovered that the supposed murderer, Clive Yorkin, may ''not'' in fact have been responsible for Iris's death, and so he did some crime scene investigating, including examination of security camera footage. Turns out it was [[EvilCounterpart Professor Zoom]] who killed Iris at super-speed while going fast enough to be virtually invisible to recording security cameras and thus frame Yorkin for the deed. (Then it turned out Iris was NotQuiteDead.)

* During the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode "Flash and Substance," [[TheFlash Wally West]] is seen in his crime scene lab running tests on a bloodstained shoe, which was cleaned off with dish-washing soap. He informs his supervisor that his investigations have revealed that the soap is the same type as the brand that was found in the murder victim's kitchen.

* ''Series/AdamTwelve'': Along with his uncanny ability to focus, one of the strongest traits of Officer Reed. He recalls license plates while carrying on normal conversations with beat partner Malloy, can spot ringers posing as hostages, recalls memos about serial numbers attached to stolen goods ... on the list goes. At the slightest glance of trouble, Reed immediately alerts others and investigates.

* Plays a role in Detective Spooner's murder investigation in ''Film/IRobot''.

* Plays a role in Detective Spooner's murder investigation in ''Film/IRobot''. The murder at first appears to be a suicide; a man throwing himself through a closed window. Spooner notices the security mesh, and finds he's unable to break it by smacking it with a chair(and later it's revealed [[spoiler:he has a prosthetic arm strong enough to punch through ''pre-stressed concrete'']]), meaning an elderly man like the victim would have no hope of doing it, and a robot was likely the culprit. Turns out [[spoiler: it was ''assisted'' suicide - the robot threw him out the window on his request]].

* In ''Film/SleepyHollow'', this is Ichabod Crane's preferred method of solving the mysterious murders in the titular village. He uses revolutionary (for the time period) methods of investigation, including autopsies of dead bodies, and [[HollywoodAtheist scoffs]] at the supernatural explanations the residents come up with (due to his own HarmfulToMinors childhood memories of his SinisterMinister father). [[spoiler:The supernatural explanations turn out to be true.]]

* This is one of [[TheQuestion The Question's]] most well-known traits. Next to his [[ObfuscatingStupidity wild and crazy conspiracy theories]], of course.

* Used by [[ActionFashionista Rarity]] during an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' [[ClearTheirName to clear Rainbow Dash's name of a alleged crime]]. Justified in that since Rarity is a fashion designer by trade, she's developed an eye for noticing even the smallest details.

* The ''RetrievalArtist'' series of sci-fi detective novels has Noelle [=DeRicci=], a detective with the Armstrong lunar police force, whose ability at deciphering crime scenes compares favorably with that of any TV CSI. Pity that she's often the OnlySaneWoman on the scene.

The trope name comes from the 1993-94 PC game series ''VideoGame/EagleEyeMysteries'', a detective-themed EdutainmentGame series; in particular, the second game had a feature where the glowing boxes that usually denoted witnesses or clues could be turned off, forcing the player to be that much more observant of the scenery in looking for clues. The series itself also required the player to select the best clues that told the facts, proved or disproved witness statements, and generally painted a plausible picture of what happened and why.
