* The ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''. The first one used sunglasses to hide his damaged eye (he only wore sunglasses after it was damaged). The second one was entirely RuleOfCool. Being a {{Cyborg}} definitely helps with the vision problems normally associated with this trope.

* ''Film/SchoolForScoundrels'' has BillyBobThornton's "{{sensei|forscoundrels}}" have his loser students do as part of their "training" - wear sunglasses all the time, day or night, inside and outside. Eventually, the main character gives up once he realizes that his mentor is full of crap and tells his friends (who keep doing that) that they look stupid.

* In ''Literature/AConfederacyOfDunces'', Burma Jones is always wearing sunglasses. It's implied that they hide his bloodshot eyes, due to being perpetually stoned.

* Kazuhira Miller from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' wears his aviator sunglasses every day, even during a thunderstorm. In addition, Miller wore them in VideoGame/MetalGear2's rereleases, and in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid (although that was actually Liquid Snake disguised as Miller). In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', during the night, when Snake reaches Kaz after he's been tortured and amputated, Snake hands Kaz his sunglasses, which he then proceeds to wear.

* Rei-kun of ''KodomoNoOmocha'' wears his sunglasses wherever he goes to show his devotion to Sana-chan, who picked him up off the street when he was homeless and made him her manager. She thinks it's cool, therefore that's what he wears.

* Wesker in ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series, but from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'' onward, he has a reason.[[note]]Who in their right mind would walk around exposing their cat-like eyes in public, anyway?[[/note]] Perhaps the most ridiculous use is when [[spoiler:flashbacks and pictures shows him wearing them in the lab]]. Granted labs do require some form of eye protection but it is still disconcerting when even before he injects his virus, he chooses to wear shades in a foggy nighttime forest and rather dark mansion.

* {{Trope Namer|s}} Corey Hart wears his sunglasses at night, so he can, keep track of the visions in his eyes. Later subverted: he started avoiding being seen wearing sunglasses under any conditions, because he wanted to be known for more than that one song (seemingly the only song of his anyone outside his native Canada knows).
