* TruthInTelevision. During the UsefulNotes/ColdWar the [[MoscowCentre KGB]] invented an X-ray device so powerful it could show the inside of a lock, enabling a safecracker to see the movement of the tumblers. Unfortunately the device emitted powerful bursts of radiation when being used -- KGB agents would joke that you could tell a veteran safecracker by his lack of teeth!

** In ''ComicBook/{{Bizarrogirl}}'', Kara uses her X-Ray vision to scan Gangbuster's hand, previously crushed by Bizarrogirl. Later she scans a big critter spawned by the [[PlanetEater godship]] to determine its bizarre alien physiology.
--->'''Supergirl:''' A quick scan with X-Ray vision reveals this thing doesn't even have a brain. It's operating on instinct only. An eating machine.

* Adverts in comics for X-Ray Specs. Okay, any boy stupid enough to part with money in the hope of seeing through girls' clothes deserves to be ripped off, but shouldn't enough people have "seen through" this con by now and let the sellers go out of business?

** Some apps for mobile phones feature the same thing, saying they'll convert the camera of your cellular in a X-Ray one. Same as per X-Ray goggles mentioned above.

(The idea that a software application could 'convert' a camera to an X-ray device is [[DontExplainTheJoke totally ludricrous]] to anyone who understands how software and X-rays actually work, of course.)

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', Kara uses her x-ray vision fairly often to scan her surroundings looking for missing allies, enemies or weapons.
-->Kara Zor-L stepped in, her footsteps echoing within the enclosed space. She began to use her X-ray vision on the structure, peering within its walls to see if she could detect the glowing, green, deadly mineral, or an enclosure of lead which would block her vision and probably indicate Kryptonite's presence.
* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/AVampireOfSteel'', Linda gets her first hint that Buffy Summers isn't a normal girl when she scans her handbag and sees her full anti-vampire weaponry.
-->But she felt it was time to breach etiquette and turn her X-ray vision on Buffy’s valise. Linda gave it a casual glance.\\
She couldn’t stop her eyes from widening when she did.\\
Buffy caught it. "Something wrong, Linda?"\\
Linda Danvers struggled to maintain her composure. "Oh, nothing. Nothing, Buffy. Just must’ve been some indigestion from dinner. You sure that you want me to leave you?"\\
[...]\\
"You, too." Linda went to the elevator and got in. She’d have to make a show of things, but there was no way she was leaving the area. Super-vision could help her keep track of Buffy Summers, even 108 stories up, even through stone and steel.\\
Anybody who carried wooden stakes, silver crucifixes, garlic, and a fifth of unusual water in her valise wasn’t an Outfit bagwoman. But she’d still bear watching.
* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/SupermanOf2499TheGreatConfrontation'', the main characters have this power, being of Kryptonian descent. Sometimes they find it inconvenient, though.
-->Stepping into the Common Room, Katherine spied no one. An ominous sign, she thought, but stilled her unease quickly. There was enough to fret over without inventing things, that was certain. She thought to peer about with her x-ray vision, but then reconsidered. More than once, as a young girl learning to use her burgeoning powers, she had found the results of such uninvited intrusion to be--well--highly embarrassing. One of the things that she and her invalid brother Zor could still yet smile and joke about was her inadvertent pubescent sight of his first urgent, fumbling kiss with an equally awkward partner. He kept bumping Marisa's nose and she kept giggling.
* In ''Fanfic/SupermanAndMan'', Chris tries to figure out how to use his X-Ray vision.
-->How did one use x-ray vision? Did you have to squint, or call out a secret word mentally?\\
Almost at the thought of it, he began seeing steel girders in frameworks, people in the rooms in front of him at various activities, a maid vacuuming a rug.
