* It's possible in Franchise/TheElderScrolls to enchant a piece of clothing or jewelry with the chameleon effect, making it hard for [=NPCs=] to detect the wearer. This goes to GameBreaker levels in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' if you enchant multiple pieces of equipment with Chameleon for a total of 100% or more; enemies cannot interact with you in any way unless you let them, allowing you steal from or assassinate whoever you want with total impunity, "Ring of Gyges"-style.

* In Walter Jon Williams' ''Literature/DrakeMaijstral'' series, the darksuit, which is the preferred working ware for Allowed Burglars, has a wide variety of steath technologies built into it. However, as the name suggests, it's mainly useful at night. A blurry cloud of holographic darkness entering a window in broad daylight is likely to attract attention.

* During the Hunter exams of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' a minor character (a ninja) captures a giant pig by putting a rock under a camouflage cloak to get it to run into.
* Subverted in ''Last Fantasy'', where the invisible armor is invisible, and not the one wearing it. Needless to say, the armor is lost very quickly.
* Otto's Stealth Jacket in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', which works more like RealLife stealth technology, rendering the user invisible to regular search magic and technology. However, as [[TheMedic Shamal]] demonstrated with [[RingOfPower Klarwind's]] more advanced sensors, it's far from infallible.
* Kaede from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' gets one of these as her magical artifact. Its different from most of the other examples on the page in that rather than making the person merely invisible, it consumes them and ''then'' turns invisible. Inside is [[BiggerOnTheInside an entire house]]. Also [[spoiler: Natsumi's artifact makes her and anyone holding her hand completely unnoticeable.]]

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': The Anti-Barrier, or the system the Keronians use to become invisible to anyone other than a select few, like the Hinatas.
** It's explained that very curious people (like the mangakas in the deadline arc, and the Hinatas early on) can see straight through it, but then it says this is how Natsumi and Fuyuki saw the Sergeant to begin with... yet Keroro had forgotten about the anti-barrier at that point. Someone slipped, or maybe Keroro's just a moron. (Hint: The latter.)

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'':
** There is technology that allows assassins to cloak themselves completely, although they're still visible on infrared.
** Judge Dredd once ran into a Franchise/{{Predator}} who was hunting for Judges in Mega-City One, which frequently used its invisibility tech to escape.
** In one story someone digs up a highly advanced weaponized wristband from the future, one of the features allowing the wearer to become invisible even to infrared.

* In the RTS game {{Achron}}, every single unit has active camouflage which is the justification for FogOfWar (because, [[FridgeBrilliance who is really that near-sighted?]]). If you get close enough to enemy units, you can see them. Nigh-perfect cloaking also exists in the game and units who have that ability activated can only be seen if a unit with the ability "Detector" is nearby.
* VideoGame/{{Quake}} had the Ring of Shadows, which rendered the player invisible for a short period except for his eyes.
