** The Engineer has goggles, which do nothing gameplay-related. However, the way he looks without googles is so freaky to some that it ascended to MemeticMutation as the "Staregineer".
** The Medic received a pair of mad scientist goggles as a hat option called "Ze Goggles" and with the description "[[AscendedMeme Nothing]]".

The most popular fanmod that removes said googles is looks so freaky to some that it ascended to MemeticMutation as the "Staregineer".
** The Medic received a pair of mad scientist goggles (resembling the strange device Egon wore in ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' as a hat option hat; they're called "Ze Goggles" and with the description "[[AscendedMeme Nothing]]".



** Theoretically, goggles/hats/wigs/doo-rags do do something, in a subtle manner: They distinguish newbies/Free-To-Play players (who don't have/can't get hats) from experienced players, help distinguish strangers from friends, and show what other games the player owns if they have a buy-in bonus.

** In the early design stages, the titular character was also supposed to wear a pair of useless goggles. However, the artist found goggles too hard to draw, and so replaced it with a headband after the first few issues. Attention is called to it, as one of Naruto's mentors notes he's wearing the goggles as a replacement for the {{hachimaki}} actual ninja wear; it's taken as a sign of his immaturity. In the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original one-shot]], the goggles weren't useless; he wears them when riding his motorcycle. The goggles in the first few chapters of the series proper were a holdover from that one-shot.

* ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'': A lot of mechanics and warcasters appear in both figures and art wearing goggles of various types. While they generally have no rule-mechanical effect, a pair of solid protective goggles are an eminently sensible accessory for people who spend a lot of time around experimental steam engines and high explosives,

* Subverted with Kidou from ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven''. [[spoiler:In the third season Kageyama explains through a flashback that he gave him his goggles to concentrate on the field, because they narrow his vision, allowing him to predict where the ball will land at all times]]. He also keeps the goggles because they're his trademark. Dylan, on the other hand, wears goggles with no explanation, while Amagi from the sequel wears his goggles ''on his chin''.

** The PlayerCharacter gets an outfit of their own known as the "Scion Adventurer's Outfit" which boasts the same aetheric-detecting goggles the rest of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn use, but they are a decoration, thus fit into this trope. This goes the same for the Mogstation-purchased outfits based on the other Scions.

** Well, every lead character aside from [[Anime/DigimonSavers Masaru]], but that's probably because he's too manly for them. However, [[Anime/DigimonXrosWars fans prefer goggles]]. Note that Masaru doesn't look like Elementary / Junior High school student, [[YoungerThanTheyLook despite he is in the latter]].
