* ''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.

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.

* Dazzlers are a form of optical jammers used by a number of armies which operate by blasting incoming missiles with laser light in order to confuse the on-board sensors, rather than shooting it down with expensive anti-missile munitions.
