* In the ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' novels, most mortals can't see most mythological things because of the Mist, which is apparently some sort of WeirdnessCensor. The Mist lets them see something more "normal" than the mythological reality; for example, a three foot long celestial bronze sword might be perceived as a shotgun, or the massive hellhound that just busted through a solid brick wall could look like a poodle. There are some mortals that can see through the Mist, but they are few and far between. The Mist can also be manipulated to make people think or see certain things. And Mount Olympus is accessed by a special elevator to the 600th floor of the Empire State Building - which makes some New Yorkers wonder how it can be HiddenInPlainSight at the cruising altitude of airplanes.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', there are plenty of things that are revealed to you only when you have enough [[ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Insight]]. However, having a high level of Insight also makes you more vulnerable to [[YourHeadAsplode frenzy]]. In fact, there are some instances where it's actually ''advantageous'' to go in with as little Insight as possible!

* In ''[[ComicBook/AthenaVoltaire Athena Voltaire and the Brotherhood of Shambalha]]'', Athena and Desmond both go into the temple of the Brotherhood of Shambalha, but only Athena sees anything there (and doesn't realise that Desmond ''isn't'' seeing anything she only finds out later). Exactly why this is isn't stated, but it's probably a choice of the Brotherhood.
