* Averted in ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''. Not only is Velma [[BlindWithoutEm partially blind]] without her glasses, she also seems to lose some of her intelligence as well. One episode has her mistaken a skeleton as Shaggy and the dungeon she's in as a playroom.

A good way to mark your hero as an intellectual is to stick him on the far side of a pair of NerdGlasses. A good way to make your character as a badass is to kick some ass. We also all know that guys who wear glasses can never kick asses. It's contractually forbidden. Thus when an [[BadassBookworm intellectual is about to kick ass]], the first thing he has to do is take off his glasses. (See: Male version of FlungClothing) For an additional humourous/intellectual touch, the characters may be shown taking especial care to put their glasses away in their pocket or in some other safe place, before commencing the violence.

* In DuelOfAges, the [[AllThereInTheManual extended description]] of the Vigilante, comments that he has "the eyes of a shop teacher" hidden behind his thick glasses. When he confronts the crackheads who led to the death of a young boy in his neighborhood, he takes off the glasses and they notice his eyes "were no longer the eys of a shop teacher."

* The first ''Film/MortalKombat'' has a variant. Johnny Cage shows up to fight Goro and is wearing sone CoolShades for the occasion. Goro takes them off and smashes them. Johnny snarks, ''"Those were $500 sunglasses,'' '''[[PrecisionFStrike asshole]]'''" and proceeds to outmaneuver Goro, starting with a GroinAttack. The game creators were amused enough to make that incident canon.

* Sweet, pacifistic nun Yumiko Takagi of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' always wears glasses. Her alternate personality Yumie, a psychotic [[TheBerserker berserker]] assassin for the Iscariot Order, never wears glasses. It is uncertain whether donning or removing the glasses triggers the personality change or if doing so is just the first act taken after the change takes place, but once Yumie is unleashed, it doesn't end well for those in her direct vicinity]].

* 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.
