* "Plateau Eyes" is the name of a mutation/psychic power in Creator/LarryNiven's ''Known Space'' setting. It keeps people from noticing/remembering you, and is explained as causing the muscles in someone else's eyes to contract, narrowing the pupil. When people are really interested in something their pupils get larger; the Plateau Eyes phenomenon inverts this twice: the widening is postulated to be the ''cause'' rather than the effect (or at least some kind of feedback loop), so naturally narrowing the pupils would make whatever the person is looking at seem singularly uninteresting. The first character known to have it (in ''Literature/AGiftFromEarth'') has been doing it subconsciously his entire life, often to his frustration (he'll be hitting it off with a woman, get nervous because he starts to think he might ''finally'' get to have sex, and then she stops talking to him and wanders away distractedly).

* ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' takes this to extremes -- the girls' joint Transformation Sequence is a sound and light show on a par with an industrial accident in a fireworks factory, and no one but their current opponent ever notices it -- or their equally pyrotechnic attacks.
** The attacks are usually unseen because people faint or disappear when the bad guys arrive. The transformation itself is actually instant.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' explains that there are spells to prevent normal people from noticing magic and related phenomena. Normal people can still see magic, but they are predisposed to accept alternate explanations for it. This becomes a major plot point in an early-mid arc where someone wants to invert the spells, ''forcing'' people to believe in magic.
* In the anime (and part of the manga) ''{{Manga/Gantz}}'', during the "games" the main characters and their quarry are literally Invisible To Normals, though they still cause lots of inexplicable blood stains and property damage.
* ''Anime/MaiHiME'' mildly subverts this trope. While Yukino's power (usually) hides the various supernatural battles from the eyes of the normals, the collateral damage from those battles -- often quite significant in scope -- remains afterwards, to the concern and puzzlement of many.
** And in a further subversion, the damage gets bad enough that the normal students draw the conclusion that the Fuka-academy is too dangerous. Mai's non-hime friends are shown leaving and urge Mai to come along. The campus shuts down late in the series, soon after [[spoiler:Mai's UnstoppableRage over Takumi's death]] overloads Yukino's attempts to conceal the battle, but it reopens after the final battle, in time for the senior class to graduate.
** The Hime Star is invisible to virtually all non-Hime. Natsuki's mother tells her to never tell anyone that she can see it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'':
** Summoners and vessels above a certain level gain a variant of this. A normal person can still see them just fine, but if the summoner or vessel leaves their field of vision, they lose all memories of them. It's speculated that this is because an uninitiated mind is unable to properly comprehend the supernatural. However, when the normal person sees the summoner or vessel again, they regain all memories of them.
** When a summoner and vessel actually summon, they gain another level of this. Electronic sensors, such as cameras and microphones, can no longer detect them.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'' GeniusLoci/FriendlyGhost Oreg invokes this. He can hide himself from everyone but his current master (the one who wears a ring that is given from father to firstborn son on the death of the father), but shows himself to Ciarra, the mute daughter of the house, presumably because she won't be able to tell anyone about him. That he is fond of her may have something to do with it, too. He is able to show himself to everyone else if he wants to, as shown later when he and Ward pretend that he's one of the many bastard sons of Ward's father.
