* The shield dome used by the aliens in ''Film/{{Battleship}}'' can be seen from the outside, especially since it cuts through the clouds. However, a naval fighter jet still ends up slamming into it moments after it goes up.

** In "The Road not Taken", Mitchell walks into a lab, where Carter is experimenting on Merlin's device and smacks his head onto an invisible shield. Carter tries to warm him but doesn't manage it in time. She points out that she put up a sign outside the lab, only for Mitchell to take that sign from her desk, indicating she forgot to actually put it up. The shield is invisible, except when Mitchell walks into it or when it engages/disengages.

* In Brother Blood's second appearance on ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', the force-field around his tidal wave-generator is invisible until Cyborg walks into it. During their fight, Blood pins Cyborg against it, shocking him painfully.

* This is pointed out in Seanbaby's review of ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' as Superman's ''other'' weakness.
-->Besides kryptonite, Superman's main weakness was forcefields. He HATED forcefields. There are episodes made up entirely of Superman ramming himself headfirst into a forcefield over and over.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' had this as a recurring problem for the team, particularly Superman, to the point where it seemed like his secondary weakness.

** ''Film/ThorRagnarok'': When Thor tries to leave the Hulk's abode, despite the latter's warning that he's going nowhere, he walks straight into a invisible force field that blocks the hallway. The force field flashes with red intricate motifs similar to those of the rest of the room, and gives Thor a shock strong enough to stun the Asgardian.

* Played straight in the opening to ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. The force-field around Baron Strucker's base isn't visible until Iron Man flies headlong into it.

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWho2012CSTheSnowmen The Snowmen]]", the forcefield created by Jenny glows red whenever the Ice Governess slams into it.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'': Several varieties of forcefields appear in the series, with various visual effects revealing their presence. Most of them are indeed invisible unless touched, but the results of a contact are quite variable.
** In "Upgrades", the Goa'uld forcefields inside a ship in construction glow blue and looks somewhat like frost on windows when touched -- or when going through at SuperSpeed thanks to the Atoniek armbands.
** In "Deadman Switch", Daniel Jackson walks nose-first into a red-glowing forcefield, put in place by Aris Boch to capture SG-1. Later in the episode, Teal'c is encased in a smaller version of the same field used as a detention device, and "knocks" on it to show the audience it's there.
** In "Windows of Opportunity", a forcefield surrounding Malakai and the Ancient control device doesn't just glow when hit: a mere contact propels Teal'c backwards and knocks him out. When the team tests the field again by throwing a stone at it, it shoots back with the speed of a bullet.
** In "The Other Guys", SG-1 is imprisoned in a forcefield that glows bright white on contact -- as well as giving a serious shock when touched, if O'Neill's reaction is anything to go by.

* Combined with NotUsingTheZedWord in ''Film/IndependenceDay''. As soon as the first wave of missiles splashes uselessly against the alien ships' force fields, Will Smith's character yells out "they must have some kind of protective shield over the hull!" However, [[GenreSavvy everyone immediately knows what that means and casually calls them shields afterward]].
