* An IncrediblyObviousBug being used to [[InfractionDistraction distract]] attention from another far less obtrusive bug.

** In the ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'' duology (also by Zahn), mercenary/bodyguard Shada Dukal wears incredibly obvious ornamental needles in her hair...except they're not actually ornamental at all; most are highly lethal throwing darts and at least one is a recording device/transmitter. But the first person she goes up against in the story is another mercenary who was ''trained by Shada'' and knows all of her tricks, forcing Shada at gunpoint to turn it off so that she can't call for backup.

* The {{Literal Surveillance Bug}}s used by Dr. Gero in ''Manga/DragonBall'' that were able to monitor several character for years without being detected, once pointed out, was clearly visible even at a distance and also made a beeping sound.

Listening devices and "hidden" cameras that are large and obvious, often with a big red or green light on them. Sometimes they get hidden in ventilation grates in such a way that the light they emit can be seen by anyone walking by. And sometimes they're right out in the open, apparently unnoticed by people who really ought to know better.

* In the ''LoadingReadyRun'' skit "The Wire", a mob boss checks the mole for a wire, but having confirmed there's nothing attached to his chest is then oblivious to the woman standing in plain view holding a boom mic in front of him, the guy with a mounted video camera pointed at him, and quickly accepts the need to have a studio light shone on him as it being a bit dark inside. After learning by phone that there's a mole, he refers to "undetectable listening devices".

** Also the cameras in ''SystemShock 2'' that inspired them. Gigantic green light that turns yellow, then red, when they see you, and goes out when the camera is destroyed. These cameras are also massive, which makes even less sense considering the different setting.

* In "Murdoch Air", James Pendricks finds a microphone hidden in his lab, that's about the size of an alarm clock. Of course this is justified by the time period, since even for spy tools miniaturization had yet long way to go.
