Poor Goku even gets to lampshade the trope, saying his nose is so sensitive that he ''can't'' stand even a bit of Bacterian's stench.

* ''Comicbook/{{PS238}}'' has a child with the power of noticing patterns; it's so strong that he actually falls under PrescienceIsPredictable, able to figure out what has and will happen with uncanny accuracy. While he can interact with the other students for short periods, he spends most of his time studying in a private room with blank walls to keep from being overwhelmed.

* After Noa in ''Fanfic/HardBeingPure'' fully mutates, her sight becomes so good that she can see individual bacteria, along with otherwise imperceptible irregularities in nearly everything around her. It's to the point that she can't open her eyes for more than a second, otherwise she gets too much information and becomes unresponsive.

*John in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' is given extremely sharp hearing, which presents a problem for him whenever he's in a city; even the nearly deserted Ta'akan makes it impossible for him to sleep. Luckily he learns to tune it so he doesn't get overwhelmed.

to:

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' hints at this rather cleverly when heroine Agatha loses the locket that has been keeping her Spark (and emotions) suppressed, with the color scheme going from a muted near black and white to garish full-color gradients, and then finally setting into a more balanced palette. The [[Literature/AgathaHAndTheAirshipCity novelization]], lacking pictures, makes this transition more explicit.

*Attempted on John during the ambush at Hermit's Rock in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' after the attempt to put him to sleep failed. The two guys attacking him hit him with a sonic stunner. While this is painful and disabling, a cry of anguish from George in the forest nearby rouses him to stagger between the trees, and the stunner is thus blocked.
**Quite likely, [[MakingASplash having his water field up]] when they zapped him helped blunt some of the stunner's effects as well.

** A GadgeteerGenius Alpha weaponized this trope by macgyvering a strobing and sonic overload device from office electronics to escape from custody. Fortunately Rachel reacted quickly enough to funnel her sight and hearing into taste, leaving her well enough to immediately start tracking her.



* In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}},'' the move Extrasensory inflicts damage on the target by ''forcing them to experience a sensation they don't have.'' For example: forcing a Pokémon without a nose, like Magnezone, to experience the sense of smell.

* Rachel is prone to this in ''{{Alphas}}''. Her ability to drastically increase one sense at the cost of diminishing the others kicks in unexpectedly, causing her to avoid sex, keep things obsessively clean, and insist on preparing food herself so she'll have control over everything that's gone into it.

Her ability to drastically increase one sense at the cost of diminishing the others kicks in unexpectedly, causing her to avoid sex, keep things obsessively clean, and insist on preparing food herself so she'll have control over everything that's gone into it. The CantHaveSexEver element caused her significant angst, but she finally did get over it with a sympathetic boyfriend - the implication was that it was less a case of physical inability to bear the sensations than a fear of letting herself become so utterly helpless with someone that she didn't trust absolutely.
