* One episode of ''Seres/{{Combat}}'', "Odyssey", has Sgt. Saunders pretending to a shellshocked German soldier named "Corporal Ernst Keller." Everyone buys the act, except for two characters: one is a particularly observant and highly decorated German orderly (the other is a German lieutenant later on). In an apparently intentional allusion to Polyphemus from ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', the orderly wears an eyepatch and does his best to "sniff out" Germans who are feigning their injuries, and Saunders has to continually outwit him.

* Warbow in ''CrystarCrystalWarrior''. He lost his eye fighting a wizard and had to be changed to crystal to save his life. The process couldn't restore his eye and he notes that his lack of depth perception makes aiming his bow a bit more difficult.

* In ''[[Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical A Very Potter Sequel]]'', the Death Eater Yaxley is inexplicably given one.



* ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' did a segment exploring the story that a pirate captains wore an unnecessary eyepatch so that they could go above and below decks without losing their night-vision, as the eye covered would already be dark-acclimated. Their tests showed that switching an eyepatch from one eye to the other in a darkened room made navigating an obstacle course significantly easier.

* Paul Smith of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' has an eyepatch, having lost one eye after a freak barbecue accident (no, seriously). He is shown to be a more than competent fighter, being (as of the end of the 2007 school year) the second best fighter in the school and certainly something of a {{Badass}}.

* [[RetiredBadass Sarge]] in ''AgentsOfCracked'' has one of these, although it's probably only for looks since it [[RunningGag keeps switching eyes]].

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has Lorenz ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia first and third games]]), Haar ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius ninth and tenth games]]) and Basilio ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening thirteenth game]]). Nailah (tenth game) and Malice ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia third and twelfth games]]) use various strips of cloth. Interestingly enough, there have been no bad guys with an eyepatch.

* In the ''SpinCity'' episode "Grand Illusion", bumbling press secretary Paul Lassiter (Richard Kind) is forced to wear an eyepatch for several days because of an accident with his new toaster. Almost immediately, it starts taking effect: Women start finding him attractive, he's able to hold his own with the people who insult him, he makes sure the press have no questions at all, and is even able to order his boss around a little. At the end of the episode, he decides he doesn't need the eyepatch in order to be confident, and pitches it. Needless to say, it doesn't go as planned, and he ends up trying to find it again.

* Sylvester in ''Literature/{{Twig}} loses an eye to the Baron Richmond, and sports an eyepatch until he gets it replaced. When he runs into the Baron again, though, he puts the eyepatch back on to disguise that [[EyeScream he's filled his eye with massive amounts of poison so he can squirt it at people as a one-use weapon.]]

* Jerry Ahern (aka Axel Kilgore) wrote an ActionAdventure series ''They Call Me The Mercenary''. The title character Hank Frost wore an eyepatch, and a RunningGag involved him providing a different [[TallTales and highly implausible]] explanation every time someone asked how he lost his eye.
