* ''EverythingOrNothing'': The Nano Suit can make James Bond invisible, but leaves behind a vague outline. Later on in the game, Nano Guards have the same ability, but they can be defeated with EMP Grenades or Thermal Imaging. There is also a part in one level in which you can shoot an invisible guard ''without locking on'' with a Sleeper Dart-equipped Q-Spider.

* The [[StealthyMook flanker]] zombies in ''VideoGame/{{Unturned}}'' poof out into a transparent purple silhouette when alerted, and prefer attacking from the side or from behind, [[MeaningfulName as their name suggests]]. They're surprisingly hard to spot in the dark, let alone fight off.



* When [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Danny]] and other ghosts are invisible, they are either inked with a blackline with an airbrushed glow effect and filled in with slight white (their eyes are drawn normally even when they're invisible to make it easier for the viewer to spot them); slightly transparent; or invisible to everyone and the viewers.

* In ''VideoGame/{{StarCraft|I}}'' and ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'', if you ''can't'' "see" a cloaked unit they appear as a vague distortion. Units will not attack the cloaked units unless there's a [[SeeTheInvisible detector]] present, but a ''player'' might notice the distortion and use [[HerdHittingAttack area of effect]] abilities to try to take out the cloaked unit.

* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Fear, Itself", Xander turns invisible and unheard, playing on his fears of being ignored by his now college-going friends. Of course, the audience can see and hear him just fine. In "Gone" however Blinvibl!Buffy is invisible to the audience as well. Buffy has fun showing off via talking skulls and baseball eyes.

Of course, the audience can see and hear him just fine. This has the bonus effect of meaning viewers wont know he's invisible for sometime.

to:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Sundered}}'', the mini-boss Arlie Waylon has a cloaking device that renders him invisible when he’s not actively attacking Eshe. Unfortunately for him, his body—which becomes a mostly transparent silhouette while cloaked—is still visible to the player.

* In the episode "Mad Dogs and Aliens" of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', Kim gets a stealth upgrade for her battle suit, which uses the distortion effect. However, it should be pointed out that when she actually sneaks into Drakken's lair she's completely invisible until she makes her appearance behind [[HarmlessVillain Doctor Drakken]]. It's zig-zagged between completely invisible and a distortion, depending on what's going on. Of course, it's stealth ability is only shown in [[OneSceneWonder one episode]].

* Enemy cloaked units in ''Franchise/StarCraft'' have a slight distortion: it's ''very'' difficult to make out a Dark Templar who looks like a smoke trail. And even if you can see where he is, you can't shoot at him anyway. Once you know where the unit is though, you can move a detector there. However, note that the ''attacks'' of a cloaked unit remain perfectly visible, which is a bit of a giveaway to a human player. Said human player will probably drop a Psionic Storm, [=ComSat=] Sweep, or Ensnare on the offending units. This especially gives away the location of the aforementioned Dark Templar, who only has a melee attack. The Ghost's attack is ''very'' hard to spot though, as it only gives off a small muzzle flash.

* A player's own cloaked units in ''Franchise/StarCraft''. And an enemy's cloaked units once they're within range of a unit with the Detector property, such as the Terran Missile Turret or the Protoss Observer.

* ''PeeWeesPlayhouse'': Pee-Wee made himself invisible as part of a magic act. He was able to play pranks on his friends for a while, but the novelty wore off very quickly. [[OhCrap He then found out that his magic kit didn't have the necessary spell to make him visible again...]]
