* ''Franchise/StarCraft'': the Zerg Queen's Ensnare ability shoots a big gob of mucus in an area, slowing down everything caught in it. As a happy side effect, it also reveals invisible units (or rather the person-shaped glob of zerg snot just standing there). The defiler's Plague and several other abilities have a similar effect. In ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'' abilities such as the infestor's Fungal Scourge mimic this effect.

* There's quite a few sources of invisibility in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' - from magic to chameleonic aliens to hyper-advanced powered armor - as well as ways to get around them. In game terms, as long as you can draw an unobstructed line from attacker to defender you can still declare the attack, you just suffer an accuracy penalty (Invisibility spell, Deathleaper's special camouflage) or the target gets a "cover save" (anything else). Flamethrowers ignore the "cover save" variant, and the Tau faction's laser-guidance "Markerlight" system can be used to light up less-than-visible foes.
** In the novel ''Fire Caste'', the Tau's advanced invisible "Stealth Suits" are rendered as the distortion effect to bionic eyes.

** ''VideoGame/DungeonCrawl'' also has Rings of See Invisible, and also adds the less gramatically suspect Scroll of Fog that enables you to see "a strange disturbance" where the invisible enemy is.

* In ''ResidentEvilRevelations2'' during Claire's episode 3, there is a trap room full of lasers in a factory, activated by crossing a cautionary floor bar. These will kill someone when focused on for 2 seconds, but someone coincidentally created a set of footprints that cause the lasers to ignore people that walk over them. However, these footprints are invisible to the naked eye and they are revealed by shining a flashlight onto them.

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'': They can plainly see the Klingon Bird of Prey, but they are too badly damaged to muster enough firepower to penetrate the enemy's DeflectorShields. So they exploit a design flaw in the Klingon ship and ''force it to cloak''. Remember that in ''Franchise/StarTrek'', cloaked ships are unable to use shields or weapons. As soon as the Bird of Prey starts cloaking, ''Enterprise'' hammers the crap out of it.

* Griffin's invisibility in ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' was pretty easy to defeat. Mina Murray famously revealed him at the girls' school in Edmonton by throwing a bucket of whitewash onto him. Also, Mr. Hyde had some kind of "thermal imaging" with which he could see Griffin (Kevin O'Neill's art mimics a thermal camera). This property of Hyde's proves to be Griffin's undoing in the second volume.

** There's also an inversion here: The One Ring made the wearer invisible, and the Ringwraiths daytime vision was poor -- but as spirit creatures, they could see the wearer of the ring ''clearly''.
