* Deliberately [[InvokedTrope invoked]] in ''ComicBook/{{Concrete}}''. The government sets out to so thoroughly inundate the public mind with Concrete's existence that he becomes this in order to allow him to live a relatively normal life. It works.

* Happens all the time in ''ComicBook/MorningGlories'' where major {{Wham Line}}s and {{Wham Shot}}s are dropped nearly every issue, yet people rarely react unless it directly affects them.
** As an example, Zoe in issue #7 [[spoiler:admits that she killed her teacher and forced her friend to help her clean the body]]. While her audience is sympathetic to how traumatic it must be for her, they do not seem to find the event itself as disturbing or crazy.

* Played with in ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''. Nobody in this otherwise carefully realistic neighborhood seems to find it at all odd that a beagle should be riding atop his doghouse dressed as a WWI Flying Ace, among many other things. They do however look askance at Peppermint Patty for believing he's 'a funny-looking kid with a big nose'. (Occasionally [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when they ''do'' find his behaviour odd - just in passing - then continue on their merry way. It's possible the kids just figure he has doggy ADHD.)

* In the ''ComicBook/DarkHorseMonsters'' story "Mike and Viv Go to Vegas!", a bickering married couple [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin on their way to Las Vegas]] suddenly find themselves transported through time to the Cretaceous Period. Their forward momentum is halted when Viv, who is driving, hits a ''Triceratops''. Neither she nor her husband seem to care about it ''or'' the ''Velociraptors'' and other dinosaurs who immediately begin feasting on its carcass, even though they have a front seat of the animals through their windshield. Instead, they content themselves with arguing over whose fault it is that they haven't gotten to Vegas yet. It takes the sudden appears of two ''Tyrannosaurs'' to finally make them react in any meaningful way, but even then, after their initial shock at the sight of two huge predators, Mike and Viv immediately return to arguing and ignoring everything around them.

* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' and ''NinjaHighSchool'' exist in a shared universe where weirdness tends to be... concentrated. In Quagmire and the Digger's home towns, werecheetahs, aliens, magic, and other such phenomena get brushed off as completely normal. A police officer reacting in shock is normally brushed off as 'heh, newbies'. Being more circumspect is required more elsewhere in the world, not everyone's as blase about nonhumans and powers as those in the WeirdnessMagnet towns, but even elsewhere a flying car tends to not be as big a deal as you'd expect.

* A gag in ''Los Ladrones de Coches'' has [[MortadeloYFilemon Mortadelo]] leaning on a wall and watching bored how several persons who look like thugs carry away automobile parts [[spoiler:he was tasked with guarding the car of the ''Súper'' against thieves, and since they did not steal it Mortadelo did nothing. Later we see the car reduced to just a bare bodywork, those thieves having stripped it of everything. A chase of Mortadelo by both Filemón and el Súper, and a few vignettes, later ''even the bodywork has been stolen'']]

* In ''ComicBook/PsychoMan'' God grants the main character Kevin superpowers in order to jumpstart the human race. Whenever Kevin uses his powers, no one thinks it's odd in the slightest, much to the frustration of Linkara. Kevin smashes a brick wall with his bare hands? A cop tries to arrest him for destroying public property. Kevin flies around to impress a girl? She calls him a freak and runs away. Kevin flies off after having a fight with his parents? His mom wonders how he's doing that, but his dad dismisses it as one of his 'tricks'.
