* While it's up to the player to decide precisely how to react, this is conveyed pretty well in ''VideoGame/{{Nethergate}}'' when you find out just what's living in the caves you're investigating. It's subverted later on, though--facing an assault by hordes of ghosts, you shrug it off through sheer force of {{Badass}}.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheNightFlier'': Richard Dees is a tabloid reporter who has been searching for something supernatural all his life, and has become rather weary of all the cryptoid tales as a result. When he finally runs into a real vampire, the latter notes that meeting him is Richard's destiny, even if it were to kill him.

* The ill-fated trio featured in the "Kitchen" VHS tape in the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'' demo. They visit an old plantation house that was mysteriously abandoned in order to film an episode of their show. Their financier is the most skeptical, just treating the expedition as another day at the office until [[spoiler:they get separated from the host of the show and when they find him, he has been brutally killed by...something]].

* Present in quite a few works in TheSlenderManMythos: especially in later blogs, where people [[WrongGenreSavvy start assuming that Slendy's just an urban legend]], and his appearance in their lives is problematic. For particular examples, see ''Blog/SeekingTruth'' and ''WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID''.

This ends when he actually SEES the monster -- and finds that it is just as advertized, and worse. He sees the eerie, glowing intelligence in its eyes, smells the rotten meat on its breath, gets smacked around a bit, but survives, running back to safety to hide under the bed and refusing to come out because it's real ''it's real'' OH MY GOD ''IT'S REAL''... even though that's what everyone's been telling him up till now.

* Interestingly played with in ''Discworld/Pyramids''; the people of Djellibeybi believe deeply that the sun is pushed by a scarab beetle, the stars are painted on the body of the Goddess of the Night and so on. But you're not supposed to be able to actually ''see'' them, and when they do, the idea that all the things they've sincerely believed are actually ''true'' freaks them out.

-->Seeing, contrary to popular wisdom, isn't believing. It's where belief stops, because it isn't needed any more.

* ''Film/SleepyHollow'', natch. Not so much in the original legend, since in that version a) Ichabod believes the story, and b) it was a hoax.

* ''ScoobyDoo'' has seesawed on this point in more recent adaptations, showing Freddy pulling on a mask to no effect, and everyone then running away in fear.
** Also, see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCGGlQ_vKms the Scooby-Doo Project]], which is a parody of ''TheBlairWitchProject''
