* ''Franchise/StarWars'': In ''Film/TheLastJedi'', Supreme Leader Snoke gets so caught up in [[spoiler:his successful capture of Rey that he fails to notice [[TheStarscream Kylo Ren]] using the Force to shift the lightsaber next to him, aiming it at his waist. He only realizes what's happening when Kylo uses the Force to switch the saber on, [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bisecting Snoke]].]] It really doesn't help that [[spoiler:Kylo is thinking in ExactWords; when Snoke reads his mind, all he sees is, essentially, "I'm going to stab my enemy with a lightsaber". Snoke fails to realize that the "enemy" in this case is ''him'', so he lets his guard down.]]

** ''Mechwarrior Online'' content creator [=TheB33F=] shows that, with a little bit of camo work and enough steel nerves to ''not move'' when someone can see you, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh269Va6ln0 you can hide a 20 ton Battlemech in plain sight]].

*** Averted after the fact when Sam asks why Danny did not react to the fight that broke out in front of him. Danny calmly replies that the fight did not involve him and thus was not worth reacting to.

** During their second duel, Crow doesn't notice Yuya screaming in pain and his sudden shift in behaviour and he believes that the latter tricked him. After a while, he does wonder what is going on with Yuya, but he doesn't realize that it is indeed the truth until [[spoiler:Sora]] points it out and when Crow sees Yuya's terrifying DeathGlare. The dark and sinister BattleAura surrounding Yuya and his D-Wheel might be excused, since [[InvisibleToMinors nobody seems to be able to see that]], apparently.

* In ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'', until they are informed of Kuro's existence, Illya's friends and Shirou prove utterly incapable of telling Illya and Kuro apart. Though they have the same face, Kuro has darker skin, paler hair, wears different clothes, and doesn't even try to copy Illya's mannerisms.

** In the opening sequence, he deduces that a solid concrete wall is a docking bay and attempts a "manual override" on it -- smashing your hotel-room sized pod into it until one breaks. Written on said wall is an arrow with the caption "Docking Bay 500M below."

Written on said wall is an arrow with the caption "Docking Bay 500M below."" Could be justified/subverted with the hints later on that he's afraid of heights, so it might have been less him failing the spot check and more him being reluctant to make the vertical trek.

** [[spoiler:Corvus Corax]] somehow doesn't notice the [[ActionBomb Greater Catachan]] [[KillerRabbit Barking Toad]] that's snuck onto his head to suckle on his ammonia-laded hair until one of the Catachan Jungle Fighters realizes it's there. [[StealthExpert Kayvaan Shrike]] both {{lampshades}} and berates himself incredulously for how he could have missed that. [[spoiler:Granted, they were all busy freaking out about Vulkan messing with the ''Lesser'' Catachan Barking Toad seconds before]], but they had more than enough time to figure it out.

* In some routes of ''VisualNovel/{{Nightshade}}'', Kuroyuki's failure to catch one is what kicks off the plot. [[spoiler: He was ordered to murder Hideyoshi Toyotami, but didn't realize that Enju was in the next room over when he did, and so Enju ends up being accused of the crime.]]
