* In ''Literature/WitchBank'' by Creator/CatherineJinks, the protagonist's main magical ability for most of the book is to make people not notice her. It's connected to her low self-esteem; during the climax of the book she finds herself struggling to keep it working because her self-image has improved to the point that she now considers herself somebody worth paying attention to.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/HorusHeresy'', Corvus can make himself unnoticeable to living beings, so that they completely ignore his presence even when searching for him. While it doesn't work on electronic systems such as automatic sentries, people manning such equipment dismiss him as a sensor glitch even when they're miles away.

** Used to [[PlayedForDrama terrifying effect]] with the Silents, who you forget you encountered as soon as you are no longer looking at them. They were originally created as religious confessors, so people could confess their sins and then forget having done that, only feeling unburdened.

* In Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''[[Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark Retaliation]]'', Klaus Siebel (actually, a shapeshifting alien) uses a [[SpaceElves Lo'ona Aeo]] device to put a HumanAlien under a hypnotic trance. When his human friend Paul asks why he can't see the device, Klaus explains that he's using his PsychicPowers to selectively block Paul's vision to exclude the device. Otherwise, he'd be in a trance as well.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'' fanfics, this is often given as a Geass power. It doesn't show up as one in the series, but it fits the rules for how they work (they only affect the mind). It is most often given to Suzaku - since the manifestation of an individual's Geass is based on what they would wish for, and Suzaku [[DeathSeeker would want to disappear]], it fits him.

** Also introduced is the "SEP Field" of ''Literature/LifeTheUniverseAndEverything'', which makes things invisible very practically and effectively by causing people to believe that whatever is inside the field is Somebody Else's Problem. The novel [[DolledUpInstallment started life]] as a spec script for ''Series/DoctorWho''; the SEP Field is a [[{{Pun}} transparent]] {{Expy}} for that franchise's Perception Filter.
