* Parodied with the GenreSavvy Megane Kakeru ([[PunnyName whose name is a Japanese pun]] on "to wear glasses") in ''InazumaEleven''. He uses this trope seemingly attempting to look BadAss, but fails miserably at it. It doesn't help that he's a short, skinny kid. Nor does the fact that he's been known to cry over someone else stealing his role as CombatCommentator.

* {{Subverted|Trope}} in ''Manga/TheLawOfUeki'' by Kobayashi, who is often arguably scarier (and more BadAss) when you ''can'' see through his glasses. When the Scary Shiny Glasses effect disappears, you know something big is either about to go down, or just did. The subversion is made even stronger by the fact that he's actually quite [[NiceGuy friendly and easy to get along with]] (unless your name is [[ButtMonkey Inumaru]], of course).

** When Jack Spang in ''Literature/DiamondsAreForever'' personally goes to collect the final batch of smuggled diamonds from the dentist in Africa at night, narration notes how moonlight causes this effect on his flying goggles.
** The title villain of ''Literature/ColonelSun'' is depicted with these in the second cover for the book. His other lense reflects light, whereas the other shows a reflection of Bond.
