* In Civil War II, Captain Marvel and Gamora discuss keeping Thanos prisoner on Earth, and some random dude [[SocialMediaBeforeReason films it on his cell phone and shares it]]. Somehow, Anihilus intercepts that (despite being some galaxies away), and starts to make related plans with the Brood queen.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/SDGundamForce'', clips from past episodes are used as in-universe footage of those events. No explanation is made of this. The Zako Soldiers are the biggest offenders, as they had clips from episodes where there were nowhere to be found.

* ''Film/OtherHalves'': It's pretty lucky there were surveillance cameras in the ''locker room'', or Elle might not have figured out who ThePeepingTom was.

** Surveillance was used in a much worse fashion in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''. Incriminating speeches made by the villains were sometimes replayed using ''[[TheyJustDidntCare the same shot that was used earlier in the movie, surveillance-free!]]''

* ''ComicBook/NewAvengers2015:'' The Maker infects the team with nanocameras when they first run into some his super-science experiments. Since they breed, he becomes able to spy on the team any time he wishes (except when they're on the toilet. He has minions for ''that''). [[spoiler:Then it gets turned on its head when Roberto reveals AIM had known all along thanks to POD's powers.]]

** The issues of surveillance, both by security and by other students, crops up often, most importantly in "The Riddle of Sappho" where an attempt to frame Pejuta by using the school's ID system against her backfires - due to the killers using a hidden camera to further blackmail her into silence about her alibi, but not securing the transmission well enough to prevent an unrelated student from hacking it.
** In "Diamonds are a Vamp's Best Friend", the Spy Kidz eventually push their own compulsive electronic monitoring of the Bad Seeds and others (including teachers) too far, and nearly lose their club's standing because of it.

* In keeping with his theme of knowing everything Metron of the Comicbook/NewGods has been shown to have a corridor full of "datalinks" (which are really just TV screens) showing information from all across the universe. Even Highfather is shocked by the things he sees Metron is able to spy on.
