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.)

* This is a plot point in ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'' when a "holo-ship" (essentially a warp-driven holodeck) is shown to be prone to glitching. This becomes a ChekhovsGun when the holo-ship is used to fool the BigBad--the glitching reveals the nature of the trick.

* In ''Series/COntinuum'', the only malfunction of the holographic therapist is that he can walk through walls.

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong''. Similar to the tactic used by Lex Luther from the Superman sequel mentioned above, one of Jake's enemies, a dragon who once belonged to the Dragon Council but made a {{Face Heel Turn}} to aid the [[BigBad Dark Dragon]], used this as part of her powers common to all dragons by creating a magical doppleganger capable of fooling the guards while she escaped out of her prison cell, until the spell was broken by Jake's former new animal companion, [[ManiacMonkeys Bananas]] (who also joined and became Chang's new companion out of cowardice).

** ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''. After his Star Destroyer is hit by an asteroid, a captain's hologram fizzles before cutting out.

** Played straight in the episode "Killing Time". Events transpire such that Gooshie has to use the Imaging Chamber to talk to both Al and Sam. For Sam, both the visual and audio is distorted heavily, while Al can't see him at all and gets only audio. Justified in that the technology is specifically made for Al and Sam to communicate across time. For anyone else it's very difficult to get working right.

Added DiffLines:

* Several examples on ''Series/BabylonFive'', particularly a hologram of Londo Molari in one episode which appears slightly blueish and blurry. In this case, as it is a pre-recorded message, and Londo paces quite a bit, the hologram ends up walking through another character, facing the wrong direction (at one point, you can see the message's recipient smirking as Londo just barely manages to miss pointing accusingly at him.) [[spoiler: Londo's hologram does manage to end the message facing Lord Refa and bidding him farewell, before the message ends and the gathered group of Narn witnesses beat Refa to death.]]
