* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2''. Po and the Furious Five have to sneak past the wolf army patrolling Gongmen City. As a large clumsy panda, Po's "Stealth Mode" leaves much to be desired, so they steal a parade dragon costume. HilarityEnsues.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'': Deadshot tries to get the team across the Arkham courtyard while keeping a "low profile". First, Captain Boomerang shows off by throwing a boomerang ''past'' one of the guards and hitting him [[BoomerangComeback on the return arc]], which alerts him and gives him enough time to call for backup before he goes down. When the backup arrives, King Shark [[LeeroyJenkins charges right into them]].
-->'''Deadshot:''' So much for "low profile".

* Can be invoked by the player in any StealthBasedGame and you blow your cover by, for instance, tripping an alarm, forgetting to hide a body or just walking into a room full of guards. From there you either go guns blazing or enact a SaveScum.



* Really can happen in any StealthBasedGame. If a guard notices you, or you trigger an alarm, it's usually time to either SaveScum or go guns blazing.

** One of the few times this trope ''wasn't'' Luffy's fault was in Impel Down. Having snuck into the prison so he can rescue Ace, Luffy stayed out of sight and kept quiet. Unfortunately, by sheer concidence, Buggy the Clown was already launching his own attempt at a jailbreak and ended up blowing Luffy's cover.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'':
** Judy and Nick are investigating [[AbandonedHospital Cliffside Asylum]] hiding in the shadows while [[spoiler:Mayor Lionheart and a honey badger doctor discuss how to deal with the savage predators they are holding]]. Judy is recording the conversation on her phone. Then her parents call...
** Later, Nick and Judy sneak into a subway car full of vital evidence. Nick suggests taking a small brief case containing relevant evidence and leaving before the bad guys realize they're there. Unfortunately Judy [[FatalFlaw impulsively]] wants ''all'' of the evidence delivered to the police. So she hijacks the train car.

* In the ''Series/StarTrek'' episode "Balance of Terror" the ''Enterprise'' and the Romulan warbird are both attempting StealthInSpace until Mr. Spock accidentally activates a control, giving their position away. It doesn't help his case that Romulans turn out to be an off-shoot of the Vulcan race, so a bridge officer is instantly suspicious of his motives.

* ''EternalDarkness'' has an enemy example. In one chapter you are being stalked by an invisible "vampire". While you can make it visible by casting a simple spell, if you don't have time you can tell where it is when it knocks some things over (particularly in the basement when you destroy it's source of power and [[DeaderThanDead kill it for real]]).

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Power Ponies", Twilight Sparkle starts telling her friends a plan for how they can sneak into the supervillain the Mane-Iac's hideout. Rainbow Dash, who wasn't paying attention, suddenly charges up to the front entrance and starts yelling for the Mane-Iac to come out and fight. Annoyed, Twilight says, "So much for the element of surprise."

* A larger-scale example happens in the ''VideoGame/MassEffect''/''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' crossover ''FanFic/CyclesUponCycles''. Commander Shepard's ship, the ''Normandy'', is an Alliance (The alliance in question is between the races of ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'') ship meant to operate covertly in [[VideoGame/MassEffect Council]] space (there was a war and now neither side trusts the other) space. They proceed to quickly blow ''that'' out of the water before their first mission- they get warning of an attack on the planet of Eden Prime and then proceed to very publicly save the planet from said attack. Luckily, their act of heroism helps convince the Council to simply ''let'' them operate in their space.
