* In ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', it borders on a RunningGag that the lead character always wears goggles. It started with [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Tai]], then [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Davis]] actually started wearing Taichi's original goggles. ''Then'' [[Anime/DigimonTamers Takato]] wears them because he watched a different version of Digimon on television. Then there's [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Takuya]], [[Anime/DigimonXrosWars Taiki]], [[Anime/DigimonXrosWarsTheYoungHuntersLeapingThroughTime Tagiru]], Tsurugi in ''Next'', and Hikaru in ''D-Cyber''. Strangely, [[OlderThanTheyThink the very first guy to wear goggles]] (another guy named Taichi in ''[[NoExportForYou V-Tamer 01]]'') actually got them as a gift from a pilot and [[UnbuiltTrope used them for that very purpose.]] In several instances, the characters do actually use them. The problem is that nobody else seems to ever be bothered by whatever condition prompts the current goggle boy to wear them.

** Although you never SEE her wear them, in the Webcomic series her face is covered in soot and ash, except for the goggle marks around her eyes. So conceivably, they actually DO do something.

* ComicBook/{{Hellboy}} does not wear goggles.

Even Guillermo del Toro, the director of [[Film/{{Hellboy}} the movies]], thought they were goggles.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has an accessory known as beer goggles. The enchantment is "They do Nothing!"
** Ironically, said enchantment allows them to be pulverized into twinkly powder (as opposed to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin useless powder]]). Which means that the fact that they do nothing means they do something. But if they do something, they can't do nothing. But if they don't do nothing, then they can't do that something...

* ''None'' of the many goggles in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' have a stat bonus other than armor class, and they're both harder to find replacement components and no better as armor than glasses that do have stat bonuses.
** In addition, some of the costumes and headgear in the game feature goggles. This means that if a player wants he can have one pair on a helmet, one pair around his neck (as part of the costume) and at the same time wearing a pair.

* Rikku from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' wears a pair of goggles in her swimwear. When she takes it off, there's ''another'' pair of goggles underneath. She never wears these. Which is particularly baffling as she is of a race of people who can stay underwater apparently indefinitely and none of them ever put on any goggles when doing so.
