*** It should be noted that they eventually ''did'' catch on the fact that there was a ghost in their room, at which point the usually antics involving a ghost hunt in most other anime occured. Of course, this being Mahora, the ghost hunting included actual ''[[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Proton packs]]''...

** WordOfGod says that Yugi's appearance doesn't actually change, the difference in art represents how the Pharaoh has more presence than Yugi. The only person who ever thought they different people was blindfolded at the time, and only heard their voices. Oddly enough, the Paradox Brothers ''do'' react to Yugi's transformation, but never say anything other than gasping and wondering what he was doing.

Comments about the hair are rare, and only tend to turn up in the English dub, which sometimes lampshades the odd hair and height difference. It makes sense no-one would mention the hair, since most Yu-Gi-Oh! characters [[AnimeHair don't have room to talk.]]

* In ''Manga/AnatoliaStory'', while Yuri's appearance ''is'' commented on (namely that she's short, pale, and has dark hair), one would think a Japanese woman from modern times showing up in a Bronze Age society in the Middle East would garner a ''little'' more notice. Doubly so since the manga has Yuri drawn as looking distinctively different from the other people of Anatolia, most of whom are considerably taller than her and have lighter hair.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', people are pretty shocked to discover that Piccolo, a man with green skin and antennae, is an alien. Piccolo himself is shocked to discover this. The same thing happens when they find out that Goku (who used to have a tail and would transform into a giant ape in the full moon) is an alien. Granted, given the [[PettingZooPeople kinds of things walking around]] on Earth in this series that are native to the planet and clearly not human, Goku and Piccolo don't stand out all that much.

** Zigzag when Goku was a child. Some
people did freakout when they realized Goku had a monkey tail. Most of the time, however, people didn't seem to care or just note it as an unusual quirk.

Also, Piccolo was widely believed to be a type of demon, which is somewhat common in the Dragon World. His father even called himself the Demon King. With Goku, his friends are not particularly shock that he's an alien. They are shock that he was a vicious alien sent to kill everyone.

* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', there is Mion Sonozaki, who never leaves the house without her gun, which is highly visibly placed in her highly visible shoulder holster. No one ever seems to notice or to care. Possibly justified by the fact that she's a MafiaPrincess (and well-known as such in the tightly-knit village.)
** Also everyone knows it's not actually a real gun but an Airsoft.

No one ever seems to notice or to care. Her gun was so unnoticable that the remakes of the visual novel scrapped it because it didn't do anything.

** Absolutely nobody notices or makes mention of Hanyuu's horns.

** Absolutely nobody notices or makes mention of Hanyuu's horns. Miyo actually does once in the visual novels though [[spoiler:and in the past Hanyuu having horns was a reason she was ostracized.]]



** In the anime, Team Rocket's Meowth is one of the very few Pokemon to be able to talk. A few people find it strange, but most don't.

A Parting Of The Ways!" where a Pokemon hunter captures him to try and make a fortune of of him due to his odd ability to speak.

*** Happens again in a Unova episode.
*** Heatran must be pseudo-legendary in anime-verse, kinda awesome but not even on the level of befriending an Articuno.



** During the Sinnoh League, a ''Heatran'' is seen in the background several times as a trainer's Pokémon. Nobody even mentions it. One would think that it would be a big deal, considering Tobias has at least two legendaries.

* In ''MahouTsukaiNiTaisetsuNaKotoNatsuNoSora'', Sora uses her magical powers to prevent a truck from crashing from an overpass onto the subway station underneath. This gets ''some'' response, causing Sora to become embarrassed, but after some questioning by the police she continues her trip as if nothing had happened. Sure, [[MundaneFantastic magic is fairly common]] in the world depicted, but it should still be a big deal if someone uses it to save numerous lives and it would likely get a lot of media attention.

* In the [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Ghost in the Shell]] anime, The major's outfit is only mentioned once, only because she had no choice but to change out of it and into something even more revealing. Her hair and eyes are never mentioned [[AllThereInTheManual (because it's explained that her visual appearance is that of a popular mass-production cyborg model from a few years back.)]]

* ''[[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan Dokuro-chan]]'' parodies this relentlessly. People sometimes laconically comment about the results of her actions as if it were normal and she had nothing to do with it, but mostly they [[ObfuscatingStupidity don't even notice]]. On the other hand, they ''do'' pay attention to the minutiae of Sakura-kun's behavior the exact moment it becomes embarrassing. They'll notice Sakura fantasizing about Dokuro-chan, but they won't notice her ''[[{{Gorn}} tearing him in half]] and then resurrecting him'' right in front of them.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist's'' Alphonse Elric seems to both subvert yet fit this trope. He's a giant seven-foot suit of armor who regularly walks the streets with his older brother, but nobody seems to notice or care. Occasionally somebody will ask him about why he "wears" that armor, though, and it's used to comedic effect when someone mistakes him for the Fullmetal Alchemist (who is actually his brother) due to the armor. Otherwise, passers-by pay him no notice.

* In the ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' anime, [[CreepyChild Maria's]] facial distortions and creepy laughter go uncommented on by the others. This is in sharp contrast to the original sound novels and the manga, where people ''do'' notice and are understandably creeped out.

* ''Manga/SetoNoHanayome''. Things like a submarine smashing through the floor of a gymnasium, a KillSat blowing up a section of the school, or the school being turned into a war zone over a rivalry usually elicit mind surprise at best. Given the [[GagSeries nature of the series]], one would think this is normal...except that [[TheMasquerade hiding the existence of mermaids]] is the idea that drives the whole plot. Even though the mermaids would be one of the less weird things that occurs.
