* Many eyeglasses have a frame that narrows the wearer's field of vision, either by outright blocking it, or by the simple fact that outside-lenses portion of the field of vision is blurry given the need to wear glasses in the first place.

* In ''Film/TheVagabond'', Creator/CharlieChaplin is perched in plain sight in a tree branch that's maybe nine feet off the ground. He knocks out five mooks with a club, leaving a little pile of unconscious bad guys. No one ever looks up.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SesameStreet'': In the "Cookie Disco" song, Cookie Monster becomes unhappy that he can't find any more cookies to eat, though there is one laying on the wall in front of him, easily within his view. Though this is probably more likely a mistake than intentional.

* While we're at it, this is what makes the Barnacles so [[NightmareFuel/HalfLife terrifying]] in the ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' games -- you're walking along all casual-like, and all of a sudden you're being yanked up towards the ceiling...

Valve in fact mentioned in commentaries that the Barnacles were specifically made for this purpose: get the player to look up and check the ceilings. Suffice to say that players of ''Half-Life'' learned to do that ''very'' quickly.

Added DiffLines:

* There was a Wrestling/{{WCW}} event where Elix Skipper was talking about how he was going to beat Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} while Goldberg was standing direct behind him and turning in near perfect motion with Skipper so that he continued to be oblivious of Goldberg's presence. The problem here was that as he was turning, Skipper should have been able to see Goldberg on the jumbo tron.

* Lampshaded a bit in ''Film/TheFisherKing'' when Jeff Bridges character is scaling a castle wall in New York City (makes slightly more sense in context), he remarks that he is glad no one in the city ever looks up.

* ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' has a giant Predator spaceship pass by overhead without the guards seeing anything. It helps that the ship somehow moves without making a sound, but those must be the worst guards ever.

Added DiffLines:

* Several solutions to puzzles in ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}'' involve having to climb up through a raised vent or broken ceiling. However, many people, especially when being chased by one or more homicidal maniacs, often are too busy trying not to die to look up a lot of the time, making many of these sections extremely frustrating to first-time players.
