* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and its spin-offs, Saber uses her Noble Phantasm Invisible Air to use wind magic to bend light and make her sword invisible. This helps catch her opponents off guard as they normally cannot tell how long her sword is, and conceals the sword's identity. She has to drop the invisibility to use her sword's true power.

** The series generally has this available in two flavors: The [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Invisibility]] effect and the Chameleon effect. This Invisibility effect makes the player character completely invisible for a set duration, but the effect ends as soon as the player performs an action other than simply moving. (Interacting with an object, attacking, casting a spell, etc.) The Chameleon effect offers a percentage of partial invisibility, making it harder for [=NPCs=] to detect the PC. The effect also does not end if the PC performs an action. Unlike Invisibility, Chameleon can be made a permanent effect via enchantments, and getting permanent 100% Chameleon--which makes the player fully invisible--is considered a GameBreaker.

(Both in the sense that it makes the game ludicrously easy, and in the sense that, if the effect cannot be "turned off", it breaks the game by making impossible to advance since you won't be able to interact with [=NPCs=].)

** The [[RingOfPower Ring of Khajiiti]], a legendary Daedric artifact associated with the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] [[ManipulativeBastard Mephala]], grants the wearer invisibility along with [[SuperSpeed enhanced speed]] and [[StealthExpert silent movement]]. It is said that the Ring was [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu stolen off the arm of Mephala]] by the legendary [[CatFolk Khajiiti]] ImpossibleThief, Rajhin, who used its powers to take his thievery skills UpToEleven.

** A variation occurs when encountering [[{{Morlocks}} Falmer]]. Because they are completely blind and rely on sound to hear, having the Muffle enchantment on your gear or the Muffle spell makes it possible to walk straight in front of them without being "seen" at all.

* ''The ball'' can turn invisible in ''[[BackyardSports Backyard Baseball]]'' via a powerup.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has the power pool set "Invisibilty" which has Stealth, Invisibilty and Grant Invisibilty. The first slows you down and is only ''partial'' invisibility, and the second keeps you from attacking.

* When ''{{Alphas}}'' delved into the idea of invisibility they focused on the notion of "blind spots". Their invisible girl can trick the eyes into thinking there's no one there. One of the side effects is that when she's caught and can't move, she remains perfectly visible.
* A one shot villain in an early episode of ''Series/LoisAndClark'', "I'm Looking Through You", had an invisibility suit. Lois maintained ArbitrarySkepticism throughout, until the evidence is so stacked against her she has to move the goalposts:

See VisibleInvisibility to show way producers use to achieve this effects. For when the clothes/armor/equipment are the ones who provide invisibility, see InvisibilityCloak. When everything ''except'' the clothes/armor/equipment is invisible, see InvisibleStreaker. AstralProjection frequently renders the projected invisible.

* The half-unreal Void Walker demons in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' have abilities that let them phase out of reality and become more or less permanently invisible, making them notoriously difficult to catch for anyone who isn't one of the few character classes with ScarilyCompetentTracker abilities. The only thing that can top them is the underrated WhiteMagic Advocate angel, who can anoint ''everyone'' around them with invisibility potions to cloak a whole army.

* The ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'' book ''Let's Get Invisible'' has the protagonist and his friend find a mirror on his attic which can turn them invisible. However, if they use it for too long they get sucked into the mirror, and their reflections come out to take their place. (Yeah, kind of a weird setup there.)
* One ''Ghosts of Literature/FearStreet'' book has the protagonist and his friend accidentally summon a girl with magic powers, who grants them twelve hours of invisibility to prove that she's legit. They spend a good chunk of it playing pranks on some of the nastier kids from school.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has two flavors. The [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Invisibility]] spell effect makes the player invisible for a short period of time, and breaks as soon as the player performs an action other than moving. The Chameleon effect offers partial invisibility, making it harder for people to detect the character, and does not break on performing an action. Unlike the former it can be had as a permanent effect via enchantments, and getting permanent 100% Chameleon--which makes the player fully invisible--is considered a GameBreaker.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', one of the Agent of Nocturnal abilities granted to Nightingales, is the ability to turn completely invisible for two minutes every day.
** A variation occurs when encountering Falmer. Because they are completely blind and rely on sound to hear, with the Muffle enchantment on your gear and the Muffle spell, it's possible to walk straight in front of them without being "seen" at all.

There are also vampire bloodlines who have the ability to ''see'' invisible enemies as an inherent trait.
