* Inverted in ''TheSwordOfTruth'': Jennsen (and any of the 'pristinely ungifted') can see the real thing underneath the illusion because she's [[AntiMagic unable to see or be affected by magic at all,]] rather than having some magical ability that allows her to break an illusion like many of the other examples.

* ''[[Film/{{Hellboy}} Hellboy II: The Golden Army]]:'' Krauss provides the BPRD with special goggles capable of seeing through magical glamour; the BPRD uses them to find trolls disguised as humans. As a ContinuityNod to the first film, when Hellboy himself is seen through these goggles, he's shown with longer horns and a fiery crown--accoutrements of the Prince Of Hell role that Hellboy has been rebelling against.

** LeagueOfLegends has invisible wards, traps and champions which can only be revealed by [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin True Sight]]. This can be provided by certain wards, trinkets, defensive towers and (until the Season 4 updates) Oracle's Elixir would give the champion using it a true sight radius.

* In ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'', the Reveal Invisible spell is needed at several points to progress the plot. The description does warn though that it should not be used recklessly, lest the caster GoMadFromTheRevelation from seeing ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow.

to:

* The Aeroprism in ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarI'', ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarII'' and ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIV'' allows the party to "see that which cannot be seen". In all three games, it must be obtained late in the game to access certain hidden dungeons.
* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate2'' has the AD&D version, which tends to be the go-to spell to eliminate invisibility and illusionary defenses once the party is high enough in level to cast it. It was intended to be in part 1 as well (it is mentioned in the file spell.ids), but got dummied out, probably because in a vanilla game, clerics and especially wizards are unlikely to get high enough in level to actually use it.

* The [[SeeThruSpecs Lens of Truth]] in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' let you see invisible objects and creatures, see through walls that were normally opaque but weren't really there, and also see the contents of chests without opening them (thus avoiding booby traps, and wasting money, ammo, etc. when you can't carry anymore.) It returns in ''MajorasMask,'' and ''LinksAwakening'' had something similar in the form of the magnifying glass.
