Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BuBumLaStradaVersoCasa'': Jack always wears a pair of pilot goggles, but they are more for the show than anything else. In episode 23 he briefly uses them as protection during a blizzard, but the other characters (who don't have goggles or any other form of eye protection) don't seem bothered by the snow either.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}''
** Played straight by Ruckus, who has forehead goggles and never puts them on.
** Averted by Barik and Pip. They have forehead goggles at champion select, but put the goggles over their eyes when the action starts. On a similar note, Fernando also puts his helmet's visor down.

* Many blind people wear sunglasses. Depending on the cause of the blindness, this is often so other people can't see their eyes, for reasons ranging from self-consciousness about not being able to control the direction they're "looking," to not wishing to alarm or distract people. Some blind people have perfectly normal and functional eyes, but just can't receive the signals. To avoid actually damaging their eyes from the sun, they wear sunglasses.

** The Medic received a pair of mad scientist goggles as a hat option in one update. Their description consists of just one word: ''"[[AscendedMeme Nothing]]"''

** Funnily enough, Baird ''does'' wear his goggles properly as part of his 'Mechanic Baird' multiplayer skin. They still don't do anything, but at least it makes sense now.
** Also, Dom has a gigantic Ka-Bar-esque knife strapped to his chest. Guess when he actually pulls it out?

[[spoiler:The knife at least gets some use in ''Gears of War 3'': Dom lends it to Marcus who needs it to help move a rusty lever. He dies before he can get it back, but Marcus holds onto it and uses it to kill Queen Myrrah]].

** Drew also mentioned that his on-screen glasses served a useful purpose as a decoy - he was rarely recognized on the street without them.

* In the recent ''masterpiece'' by F. Bondarchuk ''[[Creator/StrugatskyBrothers Inhabited island]]'' the gear of an alien guardsman includes fa-abulous pink (!) ski goggles. They almost never put them on, even during shooting practice, obstacle courses (with fire barriers) and actual combat raids against insurgents.
* In ''Film/AlienVsPredator'''s director's commentary, the director said that originally only one character was to wear goggles on his head. The other cast members thought it looked cool, so they all wore goggles on their head... which meant they had to be fogged up so they wouldn't reflect the cameras.

* In ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', you can personalize your Spartan with various different helmets, shoulder pieces, etc. Despite many of them having obvious bonuses (extra armor, grenades, etc.) all the changes are cosmetic.
