TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness will often make heavy use of this trope -- it's evidently how they keep ThePlan up-to-date. Heroes or antagonists savvy to this will give them a PokeInTheThirdEye to escape detection.

* In VideoGame/AlphaProtocol you can buy maps of all of the various locations from a surveillance company, even those of extremely secure facilities. Including those which your highly powerful government agency can't get accurate data for.

* A character limit caused this to happen in the English versions of the first two generations of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' ''from a kind, loving mentor''. Whenever you tried to use an item improperly, the game would all of a sudden have Professor Oak speak to you, saying that this isn't the correct time to use that. ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' explained that Oak had set up a complex series of cameras across Kanto and Johto expressly for this purpose. By the time the games moved to a 32-bit system, there was more room for text, and thus they could explain that it was simply the character imagining what his mentor would say in that situation.

* ''Fanfic/SupperSmashBrosMishonhFromGod'' gives this to Sara, thanks to the villains holding the IdiotBall. Basically, the villains main hideout has security cameras in it, and the camera feed is conveniently located in the Smash Mansion for Sara to watch, and learn their plans.

Basically, the villains main hideout has security cameras in it, and the camera feed is conveniently located in the Smash Mansion for Sara to watch, and learn their plans. Later on, we see [[MissionControl Sara's ally Tiffany]] using the Home Depot website during an assault on one Home Depot store. The website apparently functions as a radar, since it's said to have a map of that particular store, as well as tracking the location of Sara, and showing which way the 'lesbans' are coming from.
