* Also by Creator/DeanKoontz, Literature/OddThomas sees a lot of things that are usually invisible. This is mostly a case of ISeeDeadPeople, but ''Deeply Odd'' has the Rhinestone Cowboy [[spoiler: and the rest of his cult]] who is normal person hidden by some dark magic. This is revealed when he threatens Odd with a gun in a busy grocery store. Odd assumes he's bluffing, as no reasonable person would draw attention to himself like that. Then he starts shooting, and all anyone else sees are his shots hitting a product display.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''{{Website/STRANGERS}}'', the titular creatures can only be seen and physically interacted with by "sensitives". Sensitivity is an innate ability that cannot be learned, but onlike other examples of this tropes, it has no genetical component and cannot be passed through generations. Additionally, for some reason ethnic, sexual and religious minorities in a local area display more sensitives than the average.

* ''Webcomic/PennyBlackfeather'' has, as of yet, Nathaniel and [[TheFairFolk snow spirits]]. Some characters also have WeirdnessCensor strong enough to explain EldritchAbominations as skin disease.

* David Eddings' ''TheElenium'' and ''TheTamuli'' actually show three different ways to achieve the trope, each by a different supernatural force. Styric Child-Goddess Aphrael can cast a spell that makes people ignore her and anyone else with her. The Delphae Xanetia can alter the light around her, causing it to "wrap" around and pass her. And the the Troll-Gods somehow come up with a weird third way. In essence, they jump from one frozen moment to the next. To someone within, it looks like the world is going at something like 1 frame per second, with all the jerkiness that implies. Meanwhile, the rest of reality never gets to see the people inside because the instant they're visible is vanishingly small. Interestingly, due to the differing magics involved, method #3 seems to interfere with method #2 (someone in the skipping invisibility will see Xanetia with a multicolor glow).

* ''TheBartimaeusTrilogy'' by Jonathon Stroud takes place in an [[TheUnmasquedWorld Unmasqued World]], but this trope still applies somewhat: demons can change their forms and often do, though their true selves can be seen on "higher planes." Demons can see on multiple planes to recognize each other; magicians can use special contact lenses to see on a few and are thus harder (but not impossible) to trick.
* In ''KingdomKeepers'', the Overtakers can't be seen by anyone other than [[FiveManBand the DHIs]] at first. They eventually can be seen as [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve more people believe in them]].

* In ''TwilightEyes'' by DeanKoontz, creatures called Goblins can only be seen in their true forms by humans with some psychic ability (the "Twilight Eyes" of the title). The main character has unusual purple eyes that make him able to see them. Another character has an amber third eye in his forehead with the same ability. The protagonist's love interest can also see their true form and see the future, though there doesn't seem to be any [[RedRightHand visual quirk]] to indicate it.

* In "The Children's Room", from the vintage anthology scifi series ''Tales Of Tomorrow'', only people with the right intellect-enhancing mutation can notice the titular room's presence in the library, or make sense of the writing in the books it contains.

* The MINDs from ''VideoGame/MindZero'' appear as either monsters - either as the summoned monsters or mad monsters - or weapons used by Minders. Taken a step further, Minders can't hear MINDs unless it's their own.
