In some universes, ignoring the antics of the main characters goes beyond the BystanderSyndrome. It seems that with your average person, their attention span is wholly taken up with the gray mundanity of their everyday lives. They simply ''refuse'' to see anything too strange.

*The ''Series/Supergirl'' episode "Myriad" sees Cat Grant make it all the way to her office without noticing everyone in the city has been mind controlled by Non. Though this could simply be a symptom of her epic level of self-absorption.

* In Creator/StephenKing's ''Series/{{IT}}'' miniseries, despite the fact that Derry has had far, ''far'' more child deaths, arsons, psychotic breaks, and industrial accidents than is healthy for a small town, no one notices it's out of the ordinary because It does something to the townspeople. It gets to the point where the characters wonder if It has become part of Derry, or if Derry's just always been an extension of It. Given that, in the book at least, [[spoiler: It's destruction is immediately followed by Derry falling apart (literally!)]], the latter seems more likely.

Compare and overlap UnusuallyUninterestingSight, where something blatantly looks out of place to the viewer, but nobody notices (or cares to notice.)

* PlayedForLaughs in the ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' episode "[[Recap/LittlestPetShop2012S4E5LittlestPetShopOfHorrors Littlest Pet Shop of Horrors]]": The shop receives a guest, a vampire bat named Vlad. Vlad openly does stereotypical vampire-like things, like attempting to bite the other characters' necks, lacking a reflection, repulsion by crosses and garlic, sleeping in a coffin, and getting burned by sunlight. Only Russell catches on that he's a vampire, but [[CassandraTruth everyone else refuses to believe him]] (under the idea that Vlad never said he was a vampire), forcing Russell to fight Vlad on his own while being hindered by his friends.

* ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' (a novella of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): The people of Yeddaw outright ignore a miracle happenning in the middle of their town, despite being exceptionally good at spotting street urchins and lawbreakers. Lift snarks that they must be doing so on purpose.

* Agent "!" of the Brotherhood of Dada (antagonists of the ''DoomPatrol'') has the specific power that he "comes as no surprise", i.e. nobody finds his appearance or presence particularly unexpected or notable, and tend to ignore him. Given that he's dressed in a suit of exclamation marks and his chest is a gilded cage with a small airplane in it, this is quite an accomplishment.

** This is then reversed in ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', where the teen protagonists have never heard of Rangers before and are amazed by an alien invasion, despite two decades of both. Darn kids never pay any attention to current events.

** This is then reversed in ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', where the teen protagonists have never heard of Rangers before and are amazed by an alien invasion, despite two decades of both. Darn kids never pay any attention to current events. Though with how that series repeatedly pushed the continuity reset button, for all we know they just IGNORED all of that.
This list shows the last 10 events of 199. Show all.
