** More generally, the [[ColorCodedWizardry colored auras]] that show up around unicorns horns or levitated objects are purely for the benefit of the audience. Some fans forget that the characters are incapable of seeing them.

** "A Royal Problem" Has Princess Celestia swap cutie marks with Princess Luna. Despite a prior episode showing the black patches were part of Luna's natural coloration as opposed to her mark, the black is swapped along with the white moon cutie mark for no clear reason save
that the characters are incapable of seeing them.it would be blend into Celestia's white coat otherwise.

* In the second season pilot of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Discord corrupts Twilight Sparkle's friends one by one. When the ponies turn into jerks, they also become sepia-toned and later turn gray. Spike and Pinkie Pie are the only ones to note the color change, and both characters are among the only ones to have openly broken the fourth wall before.

* When Darth Vader's mask is cracked to reveal his eye in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', he has a visible eyebrow identical to Anakin's. While this contradicts other depictions that show his eyebrows were permanently singed off, as they were digitally edited out in the updated cut of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' by the time ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' was released, here it serves the dual purpose of better defining his character model and [[spoiler:clearly indicating his identity to Ahsoka]].

* SeeWater\\
The camera (and audience) can see clearly underwater; therefore, so can the characters.

* In the 2010 version of ''TrueGrit'', the speed of sound issue is noticibly averted. When Rooster Cogburn fires a rifle as a signal from across a valley, we see a plume of smoke shoot silently out of the gun, followed seconds later by the distant crack.

** Many of the other powers in ''Heroes'' take this to an almost absurd degree. Peter and Ted's hands glow when they are emitting radiation. Elle's electricity is in the form of blue sparks. Sylar's lie-detection skill is indicated with a shake of the camera (and usually his saying "You're lying!" directly aferwards).

* A ''LawAndOrder'' episode had the detective miss a dead body directly in their line of sight until the camera could see it.

** It goes further than that - WordOfGod is that Shinigami-vision, when transferred to a human, creates ''no'' visible differences in the human's eyes. So all those scenes where people who've made the eye trade suddenly have GlowingEyesOfDoom? That's for the audience's benefit only.

* In a feminine-hygiene ad, some blindfolded women try to identify the rhinoceros standing between them. Their guesses are all inanimate objects, based entirely on the shape of its body parts that are seen on screen ("It's a rope", "It's a pillar", etc). None of them notice that it smells like a big freakin' animal, that it's warm to the touch, or that ''it's moving'' slightly.
** A case of Rule of Perception meets CompletelyMissingThePoint, as in the original parable that inspired this scenario (which involves an elephant), the blind investigators ''know'' it's an elephant, and are asked what the animal is ''like'', not what it is.

* In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' and ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', NoEndorHolocaust appears to be in play during the battles in Manhattan and Sokovia, respectively. ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' averts that trope with footage from those battles and others showing that, yes, innocent people had died during those battles and the Avengers had not noticed due to dealing with Loki's Dark World army and Ultron.
