bandage? Does that even make sense? Why has no one pointed that out?''

* In earlier series of ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'', Starbuck had a largish dressing on her back whenever she was seen with her shoulders bare. This was never remarked upon, although she'd usually been involved in sufficient rough-housing that you could infer she'd grazed herself. (The real purpose was to cover Katee Sackhoff's tattoo of a cross, which was inappropriate in BSG's pantheistic society. In later series it was covered with a fake tattoo of a stepped pyramid. Or sometimes they didn't bother.)

* In the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' series, Detective Gumshoe has been wearing a bandage in the same spot on his left cheek for at least seven years. It's almost-but-not-quite {{lampshaded}} in ''[[AceAttorneyInvestigations Investigations]]'', when he asks, "Do I have something on my face or something?" to which the response is, "Well, actually..." The whole dialogue seems to be drawing attention to his Pointless Band-Aid, and then the punchline ends up being "haha, it's your face" or something equally ignoring it.

Added DiffLines:

* Sayo Samonji from ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu'' has little white bandages on his face and knee. If he is heavily injured, the cheek bandage is replaced by a large bleeding cut. Aizen Kunitoshi has a more traditional and less period-appropriate bandaid across his nose, which is a permanent part of his character design.

** We find out it has a reason to be there, even if it is currently pointless: [[spoiler:it was originally applied to his chin after a car crash he suffered 30 years earlier. The SanitySlippage he was undergoing at the time caused him to forget it was there until the above quote, meaning his beard grew out from under it.]]
** [[FreezeFrameBonus Early on in Sock Opera, if you have quick eyes you can see that even his laptop has one]]
