* ''Literature/HiveMind'' has a version that only sort of works: when [[BigBrotherIsWatching telepaths patrolling for budding criminals]] are near, people traditionally chant times tables loudly. The telepath patrols are almost never real, so this doesn't do much one way or another for actually hiding thoughts, but it's incredibly distracting. The main character, a real telepath, hates it.

* According to the ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', the Belcerabons of Kakrafoon Kappa were inflicted with telepathy as a ScrewYouElves because everyone couldn't stand their enlightened isolation and the implied smug sense of superiority. Now in order to prevent themselves broadcasting every slightest thought to anyone within a five-mile radius, "they have to talk loudly and continuously about the weather, their little aches and pains, the match this afternoon, and what a noisy place Kakrafoon has suddenly become." Or they can just host a Disaster Area rock concert and go deaf.

* Happens by pure accident in ''Manga/FlameOfRecca'' when Domon's opponent (who was wearing a rather {{Stripperific}} outfit because of the heat, not because she was an exhibitionist) suffers a wardrobe malfunction and all Domon can think is "BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS". This freaks her out big time.

* In an issue of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'', Ultron was thwarted when he attempted to read a disguised Hank Pym's mind when The Wasp hypnotized him so that his subconscious would be filled with the phrase "thou shalt not kill". The concept was so foreign and confusing the the killer robot that it managed to stun him into a sort of VillainousBSOD.

** Earlier, in ''ComicBook/NewXMen'' #130, a soldier warns Xavier that all he'll see if he tries to read his mind is "re-runs of the adult channel". Xavier learns the hard way that he's ''not joking''. Apparently, learning to put up Psychic Static is part of that military's training.

* The Ordo Dracul from ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' have developed a technique where this is done automatically, straddling the line between PsychicStatic and PsychicBlockDefense. The vampire splits his consciousness in two, and any attempt to intrude upon his thoughts is redirected into one half of his mind, which is playing a constant, closed loop of thought, which can be anything from circular internal monologues to memorised statistics to "disturbingly elaborate [[{{Gorn}} dismemberment visualisations]]", or even something as simple as a constantly repeated mantra -- such as "Fuck you, you can't read my mind".

** Subverted in the Halloween episode which features Bart having telepathy. Homer attempts to kill Bart but, instead of blocking Bart's abilities, Homer ''thinks about'' blocking his thoughts (and bashing his head in with a chair) but doing this before he ''actually does what he's thinking.'' Thus, broadcasting to Bart his intentions. Guaranteeing FailureIsTheOnlyOption.

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'s mind has been stated as being too chaotic to read. His rival/friend/[[HeterosexualLifePartners heterosexual life partner]] Cable once burned off overcharged psychic powers by going into Deadpool's mind, because the effort would wear him out.

** ComicBook/{{Rogue}} of the X-Men was originally stated to have automatic Psychic Static created by Carol Danvers' absorbed psyche, making her mind impossible for even Professor X to read. This apparently fell by the wayside even before Carol's psyche was removed from Rogue's mind.

Under some writers, his passive empathy secondary mutation acted as literal psychic static that rendered him invisible to psychics.
