There are other, more practical reasons for this trope, of course; it is, after all, not a bad idea to remove your glasses before doing things where they might fly off or get broken, and preventing unwanted reflections from the lenses becomes troublesome during [[MartialArtsMovie martial arts]]. And then there's the fact that keeping any easily shattered material near your eyes during a fight is a [[EyeScream really bad idea]] (which is probably where the taboo against hitting a guy with glasses on came from). And naturally, you might want to remove your glasses to fire your EyeBeams.

* Kenji, the protagonist's best friend and comic relief guy from ''KatawaShoujo'' wears extremely thick round glasses (he's literally BlindWithoutThem the game takes place in a school for the disabled). He's a crazy, filthy, foul-mouthed shut-in who spends most of his time ranting about conspiracy theories and mooching off his friends for pizza money but the one time he takes off his glasses (in a CG!), he instantly transforms into a sad looking {{Bishonen}}, his wacky {{Leitmotif}} is replaced with a beautiful music piece and he tells a tragic story from his childhood... and then he puts his glasses back on, and the magic is broken. Complete with a RecordScratch.

* ''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.

* Parodied in an episode of JonTron, as he doesn't normally wear glasses. Thus, they appear and are removed for only that shot.
