* Invisibility in the ''Literature/LordDarcy'' stories works not by literally making people or objects transparent, but by magically re-directing observers' gaze away from its subject. This means that people who know about this effect and are on the alert for it can sense that something they're not seeing is nearby, based on where they're ''not'' looking.

* Blindside of the DCU's ComicBook/RelativeHeroes has the ability to turn invisible and is descended from the Golden Age hero the Invisible Hood who had the same powers.

** Wallflower's [[DeflectorShields force field]] uses the light-warping approach. ''She'' can still 'see' from inside the field (using a sensory power she wasn't even aware she had until it was pointed out to her), but others do find themselves in total darkness.

Added DiffLines:

* Many ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' monsters have this ability, but a few use this as their defining power.
** Neronga of the original ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' goes by the BossSubtitles "Transparency Monster". Its invisibility powers are gained from the creature's [[ShockAndAwe manipulation of electricity]], thus it must consume electricity in vast amounts in order to remain invisible for long periods.
** ''Series/UltraSeven'''s first episode was "The Invisible Invader", whose title enemy was the alien invader Kuuru (sometimes [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Cool]]). However, Kuuru wasn't able to become invisible himself, rather it was his spaceship that gave Ultra Garrison such a hard time. Later on, a race of aliens called the Shadow had this as their own ability, which they used to carry out their invasion plan without being seen.
** The ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'' episode "The Giant Invisible Monster from Outer Space" gives us ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin in the form a grotesque elephant-like creature named Sartan.
** One opponent of Series/UltramanLeo was the alien Vibe, so-called because his power was that he could vibrate his own body at such speeds that he could not be seen with the naked eye.
** The ''Series/UltramanNexus'' monster [[RockMonster Golgolem]] was able to perform a variation of this. It didn't truly turn invisible, but was able to phase in and out of reality for the same effect, meaning it could still be detected, but it couldn't be hit by attacks.
** The mosquito-like Bugdalas of ''Series/UltramanMax'' used this ability to sneak around DASH's base and drain the life force of prey without being spotted, despite growing to monstrous heights in a matter of hours.

* In the 70's when Comicbook/PhantomLady joined the Comicbook/FreedomFighters, she gained this power. She also took on a role very similar to Susan Richards in the Fantastic Four.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', [[InvisibleStreaker Tooru]] [[GenkiGirl Hagakure]] has this as her power, [[RunningGag which leads to]] [[NakedPeopleAreFunny her spending most of her time in the nude]] [[FullFrontalAssault when she's fighting]].

It's been shown her quirk/superpowers aren't limited to just being invisible all the time; she has also been shown to be able to [[LightEmUp refract and intensify light]] after some TrainingFromHell in a class trip.

** In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' Batman is assumed to have adapted it, as the Beyond suit can turn invisible. In one episode, Terry makes a remark to himself about it's more dubious potential.

* One story in Tove Jansson's ''[[TheMoomins Tales from the Moomin Valley]]'', "The Invisible Child", features Ninni, a girl who "was frightened in the wrong way" by the woman who took care of her, causing her to turn invisible. As she stays with the Moomins and regains her self-esteem, she gradually becomes visible again.

* Kobushi, or as she calls herself, Blackfist, from ''Manga/TokyoESP'' has this as her main power once the glowing fish entered her. Notably, her invisibility powers allow her to also make whatever she's carrying - such as clothes, weapons, a pair of shades - invisible with her, allowing her to wear clothing at her leisure. It's the perfect power for her, considering her love of boxing and how no one sees her attacks coming.
