* It is an iron law of [[Magazine/ForteanTimes Forteana]] that if anyone ever tries to take a photograph of a psychic or paranormal phenomenon, the resultant picture will be so fogged, out-of-focus, or suffer from camera shake, that it becomes ambiguous at best or practically worhless as evidence. Creator/AAPessimal Lampshades this in several stories. In ''All the Best Tunes?'', a ''Literature/GoodOmens'' fic to be found on [=AO3=], the angel Aziraphile and the demon Crowley (in New York music venue CGBG's in the middle 1970's) allow themselves to be photographed by a gushingly {{Yaoi}}-minded young photographer called Creator/RobertMaplethorpe, knowing the resultant pictures won't be worth a damn (or a blessing), ''however'' talented the photographer. In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5168754/1/Fishing-in-the-Streams-of-Time Fishing In The Streams of Time]]'', the Loch Ness Monster is also subjected to photographs. They don't come out well, either. In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6151465/1/Rag-Week Rag Week]]'', American billionaire cowboy Robert P. [=McCullouch=] tries to photograph a bridge which has mysteriously manifested in the Nevada desert, miles from any river. The photos fail, but he gets a good idea as to how to blow a few million dollars on a vanity project...

* A variation occurred in Creator/LarryHama's ''ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel'' with the Faceless Master, a member of the the Arashikage ninja clan whose face was always blurred in photographs. He accomplished this by quickly shaking his head just as the shutter clicked, to prevent a clear recording of his features.

* Early in ''GGundam'', Domon goes around flashing a torn picture of a man and asking if people have seen him. Shortly into the series, we learn that the man is his older brother Kyoji, and the missing part of the picture shows the rest of the Kasshu family, with an adolescent Domon sitting on Kyoji's shoulders. This isn't really a spoiler so much as an indication of Domon's current attitude towards his brother.
