* Yamaki in ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' only has his sunglasses off for about a minute of his total screentime, if that, and is often literally wearing them at night (or indoors in a darkened room). They also function as SinisterShades, even though he retains them [[spoiler:after changing his mind and allying with the Tamers]].

* ComicBook/SpiderMan's enemy Comicbook/DoctorOctopus. (In the mini-seres ''Spider-Man/Dr. Octopus Negative Exposure'', he tells a photographer that there's a reason for this: the accident that bonded his tentacles to him also made his eyes very sensitive to light. [[spoiler: In the final issue of the mini-series, the photographer uses this knowledge to help Spider-Man defeat him. After the villain's glasses are knocked off, he aims a camera with a flash directly in his face, which blinds him long enough for the hero to clock him.]]

* In the swedish comic ''Hälge'' we have [[BloodKnight Uffe]]. This trope gets discussed, deconstructed and lampshaded in one strip where we see him walk into trees and other stuff in the middle of the night. Apparently he wears them all the time cause he doesn't want people to see that he has friendly baby blue eyes.

*''WebVideo/ResidentEvilAbridged'': Wesker is a literal example, as he's never seen without his shades, even in the dead of night. A fact which [[SarcasticDevotee his subordinate, Chris]], snarks about twice.

* Maciek from ''Ashes and Diamonds''; his character in TheFilmOfTheBook is one of the iconic examples of this trope, arguably one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s. Unlike many later examples, he has an in-story reason for it: his eyesight was damaged fighting for LaResistance in the [[WorldWarII Warsaw Uprising]].

Added DiffLines:

* Umibozu from ''Manga/CityHunter''. His first appearances in the manga occasionally showed him without sunglasses, but he later started wearing them all the time, even when disguised as a statue. Being almost blind, and later becoming completely blind, it doesn't affect him in the slightest, just adding to his scariness.

* In William Gibson's [[Literature/SprawlTrilogy Sprawl]] stories, Molly Kolodny (aka Molly Millions, Sally Shears, etc.) in ''Literature/{{Neuromancer}}'', ''Literature/MonaLisaOverdrive'', and the short story "Johnny Mnemonic" never takes her mirrorshades off because they're actually lenses implanted into her eye sockets. When Case sees through her eyes, he notes with surprise that they don't dampen the light.
