Thus, Shinji always missed the constant hints dropped by Asuka (to be fair, he was clueless and oblivious but her hints might have been clearer), involuntarily making her feeling more worthless and getting her angrier.

* Subverted in ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry''. Hikari thinks that Shinji is oblivious to all hints dropped by Asuka, but hes only pretending to not see them because [[SecretRelationship no one can know that he and Asuka got together]].

* Alex of ''Webcomic/CaptainSNES'' discovers, to his dismay, that everyone around him is varying degrees of Oblivious to Hints when he tries to get them to leave so he can deal with the [[VideoGame/{{Lufia}} Sinastrals]] without posing a risk to anyone else. [[Anime/SailorMoon Molly]] is the most oblivious, to the point of standing there confused when Alex passes her a note telling her to run. And Boogerman ultimately figures out the message, but instead of ''doing'' what Alex wants, he simply announces, loudly, to everyone present (including the Sinistrals) what the message is and patting himself on the back for figuring it out.
