* The [=PKE=] Meter and [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual Ecto Goggles]] in the modern ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' video games have this feature. The more thoroughly you scan a ghost, cursed artifact, spectral emanation, or any other from an assortment of supernatural entities, the more gameplay hints and quirky trivia you will discover in the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Tobin's Spirit Guide]].

* In ''Fanfic/TheDarkSideOfTheMirrorVerse'', [[MirrorUniverse Mirror!Starlight Glimmer]] has a spell that allows her to scan another pony's Cutie Mark. Combined with a SherlockScan, she's able to tell what the ponies doing that's stifling their true potential and what they're truly capable of. While she ''does'' use this on a thug she's fighting, she mainly uses it to be TheMentor to help others unlock their true potential.

See also RoboCam, where a shot is filmed from a robot's point of view, often used when the robot performs an Enemy Scan.

Scan. Also compare SherlockScan, where the information isn't hidden but is so subtle and obscure that interpreting it requires a special mindset.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', you can perform the "Check" command on every enemy, which at least gives you their attack and defense stats. This is frequently followed by a subtle hint on how to deal with them, or merely a humorous comment.

* ''VideoGame/AncientDomainsOfMystery'' has stethoscopes, which can be used on enemies to measure various stats. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Doesn't work on undead and constructs, because they're not alive.]]
