* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has an unsettling example in the ''Dragonborn'' expansion. [[spoiler:The Daedric Prince Hermaeus Mora, who appears as a mass of tentacles with an eye in the middle, is the BiggerBad of the story.]] When interacting with the Dragonborn, the eye moves around - not as the character moves, but as the camera does, so that he's always looking at the camera. That's right: he's not interested in the hollow avatar standing before him - ''he's interested in '''you'''''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', the Chaos Bringer [[BiggerBad Unicron]] makes an EarlyBirdCameo. He doesn't do much, but he's staring straight at you. Sweet dreams.

* This is a huge factor of why the Creator/{{Viacom}} "V of Doom" closing logo is so infamous (and [[NightmareFuel frightening)]]. Aside from having to deal with the logo's ominous soundtrack and dodgy camera work (at least for the majority of its ten-year run of 1976-1986, before they switched to videotaped versions), the large, oddly-fonted "V" itself would slowly or quickly approach the camera and advance on the viewer like an oncoming train only for the screen to [[SmashCut cut to black]] at the last moment.

** Most writers have this particular fear...they just don't always talk about it. For a similar example, see the case of Music/DavidBowie's Thin White Duke character under Music below.

* The cover of the first issue of ''ComicBook/SensationalSheHulk'' had She-Hulk threaten to tear up the reader's ''Franchise/XMen'' comics if they didn't buy her comic. [[BookEnds The final issue of the series]] would [[BrickJoke call back to this]] by having the cover depict She-Hulk demanding the reader give her their ''X-Men'' comics now.

** In the reboot, a meta example could be interpreted by the librarian in the scene where Ben reads about the town history. If you interpret that she's looking at Ben, it's just a creepy moment. If you think she's looking at the audience, it's goddamn terrifying.
