* In Robert Sawyer's novel ''[=FlashForward=]'' (the basis for the [[Series/FlashForward2009 unsuccessful TV series]]), all video recording devices show only static for the entire two minutes and 37 seconds of the first blackout, when all of humanity is unconscious. Sawyer has said this is meant to be confirmation of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect_%28physics%29 observer effect]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Slender}}'', the game's BigBad, [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]], appears as a man with impossibly thin arms and legs, in a suit. The strange thing about him, however, is that his face is entirely white and nondescript. Looking at its face will cause the screen to start to fill up with static until you cannot see anything. After your screen fills with static, you will catch a few glimpses of a closeup of Slender Man, and you will experience [[BringMyBrownPants a bowel-cleansingly horrifying]] GameOver. This is actually a carryover from the WebOriginal videos in TheSlenderManMythos. An [[OminousVisualGlitch important sign]] that Slendy is somewhere nearby is that video equipment (and Slendy stories tend to be shown with a video camera as a FramingDevice) starts malfunctioning in a snowy kind of way.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', when [[DisappearedDad Clyde's]] CoolStarship, the Hestia, is slowly being taken over by the [[ArtifactOfDoom Book of Darkness]], half the screens in the HolographicTerminal of TheBridge showing the damaged areas of the ship are shown to be in static. Clive's transmission to Gil Graham also gets cut off in static as he salutes his friend.
