* Conspicuously averted in ''Literature/TheNakedSun''. Elijah was surprised to find out he was talking to a hologram because the Earth holograms did have HologramProjectionImperfection. (The planet he was on was still settled by humans; This wasn't an alien technology thing.)

** Through Emergency Program One and Security Protocol 712, shimmering holograms of the Ninth, Tenth, and Twelfth Doctors appear and waver throughout their projection. Oddly enough, holograms from the TARDIS in "Let's Kill Hitler" are perfect, opaque replications.

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsForcesOfCorruption''. In the opening sequence, the holograms of Jabba the Hutt and Urai Fen both flicker while Tyber Zann is talking to them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''StarTrekDiscovery'' features a variety of holographic projections used for long-distance communication, allowing two people to share the room and walk around each other during a discussion. The holograms are still transparent and have a digital grainy quality, with various distortions presumably caused by interference. [[spoiler: When USS ''Europa'' is rammed by a Klingon warship, Admiral Anderson's hologram starts skipping and spazzing before [[DisconnectedByDeath being cut off suddenly]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* Zig-zagged, but mostly averted in ''Videogame/EliteDangerous''. Ship HUD elements are holographic in nature, and are relatively low resolution but perfectly readable. The Multicrew feature introduced in the ExpansionPack uses telepresence; rather than physically entering another player's ship, you are holographically represented. Aside from the first few seconds as the ship renders the hologram with steadily increasing complexity, they are perfect and almost totally indiscernible from the flesh-and-blood pilot.

* Averted pretty hard in ''[[spoiler:VisualNovel/{{Ever17}}]]'' with the character [[spoiler:Sora]]. It's a point of pride for the company whose technology it is, as well as the character, who is extremely self-conscious about what few limitations it does have, in order to maintain the illusion of reality. It's also a major plot point and the subject of a [[TheReveal reveal]], despite the fact visitors are told about it up front.

Many holograms falling under this trope are completely blue, perhaps a result of the famous ''ANewHope'' example below.

* The ''Literature/RedDwarf'' novels are typically as much of an aversion as the TV series in the aversion examples above. In ''Better Than Life'', however, Rimmer's hologrammatic image exhibited problems on one occasion. Severe time dilation caused by a black hole resulted in drastically different flows of time between where he was projected and where the computer that simulated him was located. As a result, he would flash, lose colour and even go two dimensional. The novel also mentioned in passing glitches that had happened in the past such as transparency, turning a shade of blue and even having his legs separating from his body and wandering aimlessly [[RuleOfFunny which completely violates the established principle on which he is projected]]. The last one is a MythologyGag to the episode "Queeg", which also had him acquire the personalities of other crewmembers (including Lister and, for some reason, the Cat. When the Cat's personality was added to the hologram files is not explained.)
