*** However in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4 and VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker both allow Snake and Big Boss to fire their guns with either their left or right hands, which in the case of Big Boss would allow him to look down the scope/iron sight with his left eye. Such ambidextrous shooting however is never displayed by Big Boss in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater, his eye patch must really have power if he can see through it even when it is on.

** Furthermore, in ''[[MetalGearSolid4 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots]]'', Solid Snake is given the Solid Eye device, an advanced monocular display mounted in an eyepatch. Combat advantage? Definitely. Looks cool? Possibly enough to balance out the Dick Van Dyke moustache. In any case, it makes him look almost exactly like his father.

* UsefulNotes/DateMasamune lost an eye as a youth and had to wear an eyepatch. It didn't hinder him much, as he went on to defeat Japan's prominent strategists of the time. Legend says that he ripped it out himself when it was rendered useless by smallpox (though this is highly unlikely given that he was a young child when he contracted the illness). It earned him the nickname of One-Eyed Dragon; though it started off as a comment on his reckless nature, it later in his life became a term of respect. He is almost always portrayed with an eyepatch in fictional appearances, even though there's no record of him wearing one in real life.

* Jan Žižka had already lost an eye, either in battle or due to a childhood accident depending on the source, by the time he became the leader of the Czech rebel faction in the Hussite Wars. He soon lost the other one as well but continued to lead his troops into battle personally despite being ''completely blind''. As is fitting for a man of his stature, he is the subject of the world's tallest equestrian statue in Prague.

* The Pirate Captain from ''MikeLuAndOg'' has ''two'' eyepatches (as well as two wooden legs). This doesn't seem to slow him down much, although he's not very badass because he and his men are always being defeated by a bunch of kids.

* Subverted in the Disney series ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' during the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' spoof school for magic (where everyone must wear a bathrobe over their clothes and a pair of glasses just like Harry's to accessorize the bathrobes) the rude upperclassman who acts as Justin's rival wears an Eyepatch over a functioning eye, not to make himself better but just to get out of wearing the dorky glasses.

* Ana from ''Videogame/{{Overwatch}}'' was a crack sniper who had her right eye-- a cybernetic one which gave her six times normal vision-- shot out by a rival sniper via ''ScopeSnipe''. She now chooses to wear an eyepatch despite the availability of medical options to replace the missing eye as she has come to terms with who she is now.
