* Glasses are a major visual motif in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', and the party uses them to see through a mysterious fog in an EldritchLocation that serve as a LiteralMetaphor for the game's main theme of finding the truth in a sea of lies. In the finale, the protagonist throws his away [[spoiler:before wrecking the true final boss with the power of truth to wipe away all of humanity's falsehoods - he's seen through the fog with his own eyes and doesn't need the glasses anymore]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': The protagonist loses his PurelyAestheticGlasses any time he enters the [[AdventureFriendlyWorld collective unconscious]] to fight [[TheHeartless Shadows]]. Particularly played up at the start of the game, where his glasses are knocked off by a guard {{Mook}} right before he awakens to his GuardianEntity, one of the eponymous Personas.

* This happens with Nagato Yuki in ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'', when her glasses fall off during the fight with Ryoko, and she never puts them on again [[spoiler:except in the AlternateUniverse]], [[ShipTease probably because Kyon said he liked her better without them]] in a CrowningMomentOfFunny.

*** Seldom demonstrated but awesome when it is: Cyke's visor, and shades as Scott Summers, are used to control the shape and strength of the blast even when he's actively using his powers. You don't fully understand until you see him take them off all the way and open his eyes fully. When that happens, "something" isn't gonna get broke - ''everything'' will get broke.

And if Juggernaut's trying to destroy a dam, you'll [[spoiler: actually push him back a little... but eventually get your ass kicked anyway. Still, it ''looked'' awesome.]]
