* Played for laughs in ''Film/{{Freaked}}'', where everything under the roof makes some sort of loud noise, but it all goes unnoticed... ''right'' until someone knocks over a plastic cup.

* Subverted in ''Magicians of Literature/{{Gor}}'': Tarl throws a stone and the guy he's trying to draw away from his position turns towards him - he's GenreSavvy too.
* In Literature/TheAmityIncident this happens a few times to Shanice - she accidentally speaks while trying to sketch [[spoiler: T'reka]], and at one point forgets to tuck her bright red hair into the otherwise [[WallpaperCamouflage ridiculously effective]] gilly suit.

In a situation where a character not unlike the TechnicolorNinja is trying to sneak around unnoticed, their attempt at stealth will suddenly be threatened by them stepping on a dry twig, [[SneezeOfDoom sneezing]], knocking something over, setting off an alarm, blowing their cover, or otherwise alerting others to their presence. If no one notices, they might be okay - in the worst case, they might be captured, or have to face the enemy in a full-blown battle. Either way, heads will turn suddenly.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' in the mission Uprising, after you have just taken out a few Brutes and met with some more Elites, several drop pods crash into the ground giving the Arbiter reinforcements, one of your more Genre savvy comrades remarks, "So much for a stealthy advance".

* In ''VideoGame/CodeNameSTEAM'', if any agents get noticed by the aliens, they'll inform the others that they've been spotted. John Henry even says the trope name at times.
