** An object like that would probably float and/or repell anything. It probably (thankfully) only exists as a thought experiment since it violates various core laws of the universe as we understand it at least, but to quote Seamus Zelazny Harper from ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' in regards to negative atomic mass: "That's like a planet with a negative number of moons." Only, in his universe, that stuff actually exists and it's suitably terrifying.

** There was an interesting experiment where 25 women (the necessary genetic deviations cannot occur in men, sadly) were tested on their vision; the experiment showed them white rings on a screen, and one ring had UV-light added. Eventually, all but one of the women got things wrong, while the remaining woman was told she actually could see beyond the normal visual spectrum. Imagine her trying to describe what she generally sees.

** Psykers, particularly human astropaths and navigators, are psychically-gifted individuals whose job it is to try and comprehend the true form of the Warp in order to steer ships through it (navigators) or pass messages through it (astropaths). It is an imperfect science at best - navigators fly as much on instinct and gut feelings as any actual dictates of their training and astropaths have a notoriously difficult job because incoming messages are less "transmission of the actual message" and more "indistinct thoughts and feelings that must be correctly interpreted to mean something vaguely close to what the sender was trying to say".[[/folder]]

Making the job harder is the fact that the Warp doesn't have linear time, either, so a message from across the galaxy can be 5 minutes old or 5 thousand years, or even come from the future.

* This happens somewhat frequently in WelcomeToNightvale. The Shadowy figures and the dog park itself are the most common examples, and the most notable one being "This" from "This just in" which is some sort of bizarre alien life form that Cecil completely fails to describe.

* In ''[[ComicBook/ConanTheBarbarian Conan the Slayer]]'' had the main protagonist and his companions encountering a trio of monstrous brothers whose physical appearance varied from each person's point of view. To Conan, they looked like normal humans of unusual size while one companion saw them as troll-like creatures, another one as tentacled humanoid beings resembling Davy Jones and a third one viewed them as demonic skeletons on fire.

** In "Through the Gates of the Silver Key", Yog-Sothoth explicates a major implicit premise behind the whole CthulhuMythos: practically everything we experience goes under this trope, including three-dimensional space, change and time, and the individuality of what we ordinarily think of as different creatures. Ramsey Campbell's "The Render Of Veils" exploits this variation of the trope to ''very'' disturbing effect.

** Additionally whenever Goku and Vegeta transform into Super Saiyan Blue during ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' their ki becomes undetectable to all other Z-Fighters. Their ki suddenly disappearing is repeatedly used as an indication that they're fighting somewhere as Blue and something must be up.

* While a living being can easily look upon the "Dark Matter" entity from the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series, ''analyzing'' it is something else. [[spoiler:Star Dream, the ultra-advanced supercomputer developed by the Haltmann Works Company in ''Planet Robobot'', recreates the Blade version of Dark Matter last seen in ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2''... not because it would be the ideal opponent, but because it is literally all that the supercomputer, something on par with ''[[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Galactic Nova]]'', is capable of replicating. Apparently, even the mightiest digital minds in existence have a very hard time comprehending a being made of pure evil.]]

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'', Beerus and Whis' ''ki'' is so alien that it cannot be perceived by non-divine beings. After Goku and Vegeta unlock the Super Saiyan God transformation, it's suggested that they are slowly learning how to sense it, even when not in god-form themselves.
