* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The characters wear these once every few episodes for a variety of reasons. It's usually Kaeloo and Mr. Cat, but others have done it too.

* Gonta Gokuhara from ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' sports a pair of glasses, despite the fact that his eyesight is a positively superhuman 20/0.625, and is good enough to see [[spoiler: the microscopic Nanokuma cameras flying around the facility]]. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as Gonta desires to become a civilized gentleman, and he likely considers glasses to add to that image.

Added DiffLines:

* In one chapter of ''Manga/SquidGirl'', the titular protagonist becomes convinced that wearing glasses automatically makes one smarter, since SmartPeopleWearGlasses, and wears a pair of fake glasses to improve her intelligence. It doesn't work, as expected; though as Sanae can attest, [[{{Meganekko}} it does make her look cuter than usual]].

** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'': [[TheGlassesComeOff As shown]] in the last episodes, Quattro doesn't need her glasses. She just has them to help keep up her [[BitchInSheepsClothing façade]] of [[{{Kawaiiko}} innocent cuteness]].

* UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump memorably accused former Texas governor Rick Perry of this during the 2016 US presidential primary elections. Trump would then go on to win the presidency and appoint Perry as Secretary of Energy (traditionally considered one of the most intellectually demanding Cabinet posts and previously held by PhD holding scientists).

* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', both Ami (Sailor Mercury) and Mamoru (Tuxedo Mask) have been shown wearing "reading glasses" on occasion. Neither of them actually ''need'' them. Mamrou, however does have the excuse that they are (initially) part of his disguise, as he was already operating as Tuxedo Mask at the start of the series.

** When he first grabs a pair in the anime he punches out the lenses in them so he can actually see as they originally belonged to someone else presumably his father, who does need them.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'''s Conan Edogawa has big round glasses for the aesthetic affect of ''looking less like himself''; he's been [[FountainOfYouth de-aged]] into a child and is living day-to-day with a {{Childhood Friend|s}} whom he does not want to recognize him, and Shinichi never wore glasses. He's ClarkKenting, but he doesn't have the luxury of changing back and forth at will. They also make him look cuter, which he exploits. He also gets some cool features built into them as time passes, chiefly that they contain the monitor system for his little electronic trackers. And yeah, I don't know how he gets his eyes to focus that close-up either.
