* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', despite anyone being capable of reading the Dragon-Language inscriptions on Word Walls, the Nordic denizens of Skyrim have puzzled for millennia over what their true function was. It's implied that only the Dragonborn is capable of percieving the hidden [[LanguageOfMagic Words of Power]] written upon them.

* ''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.

* ''VampireTheMasquerade'' and ''VampireTheRequiem'' present the Obfuscate Discipline to vampires. Those with this ability can use it to conceal the presence of themselves or perhaps other things from the minds of mortals. The catch is that this is strictly a mental discipline, meaning nonliving eyes like cameras, beings with strong mental power, or beings gifted with SuperSenses (like those with the Auspex Discipline) can see through the concealment.

* In ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'', people who aren't hosts to the undead or undead themselves can't see or hear Jedao, which means that once Cheris leaves the facility where the black cradle is kept, she's the only person who can communicate with him (though he can hear and see everyone).

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', regular people can't hear or talk to spirits, and even wizards - except for two very unusual ones - are incapable of actually seeing them. Though obviously, if a table stood up and started dancing, they'd notice.



* Throughout the seasons of ''Series/FraggleRock'' Gobo spends a lot of time ducking out of sight from the resident human, Doc... only to discover in the penultimate episode that under normal circumstances humans can't see Fraggles anyway, so he needn't have bothered. To add insult to injury, this is also the one episode where Gobo actually ''needs'' Doc to see him, so he has to work out how to make himself visible to the human. The "YoucanSeeMe?" event happens in the last few minutes of the episode.
