* ''Series/{{Powerless 2017}}'': Everyone in Charm City is completely used to the fallout of superpowered fights. When the train gets derailed they complain they're going to be late for work, when the snack cart gets vaporized they go to the vending machine, and when an alarm goes off they idly try to identify it by sound.
-->'''Ron:''' Which alarm is that? Zombie virus?\\
'''Wendy:''' Alien invasion?\\
'''Jackie:''' Giant spider robots from another dimension where the Nazis won?\\
'''Teddy:''' No, that one goes eeyoo-eeyoo-awdub-awdub...\\
'''Wendy:''' Ah, yeah.

* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': Jessica makes no real attempt to hide her powers, as simply not making a big deal of them is enough to get most people to ignore the idea of a "gifted" living among them rather than being a public figure like the big green guy or the flagwaver. It helps that her powers are not particularly flashy. She even points out to one guy she's delivering a summons to (by lifting up the back end of his car with her hands) that people tend to ignore things they can't explain.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'': In "Errand of Mercy", the Organians don't react at all to Kirk and Spock beaming down in plain sight. They actually remark on how odd this is, but are too preoccupied with the immediate crisis to pursue the matter. The Organians' indifference is explained when it turns out that they are SufficientlyAdvancedAliens for whom transporters are about as impressive as sharpened rocks.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' and ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' both share in this trope. Characters are often shown on missions through the Stargate openly carrying weapons at the ready into both cities as well as villages where none of the inhabitants are doing so.
** I've seen every episode of both series and I can't remember a single one where this is in any way challenged by local authorities nor causing the civilian populace to flee from their presence.
*** To be fair, most of the missions have them interacting with pre-industrial civilizations where the locals would have no idea what their firearms actually are.
*** The Genii have guns, and yet they were ok with armed guests until their bunker was discovered.
*** Also, in the Pegasus Galaxy, gate travel is more or less routine for many planets, so they would've undoubtedly encoutnered firearms, which were independently invented by several civilizations (Genii and Satedans, to name just two). There are also the Travelers who trade with several worlds and carry energy weapons that look like regular large revolvers.
*** SG:1 gets challenged on having weapons pretty frequently, however, a simple "We're not here to hurt anyone" or "We're explorers" is all it takes to calm people down.
*** Subverted in one episode when the Stargate is being stored in a museum on a planet with a similar level of technology to Earth. They were immediately identified as terrorists and the authorities were called to deal with the 'hostage negotiations'.

* The Reapers in ''DeadLikeMe'' often carry on conversations with the newly deceased and can calmly walk away from the scene of death without anyone noticing that it's a little bit strange. Reapers are only partly InvisibleToNormals, the rest is probably just a WeirdnessCensor.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/AngieTribeca,'' nobody notices or cares that Detective Hoffman is a German Shepherd.
** Or that Angie is a woman, for that matter... except for Geils - when he brings this up, Angie treats this like a dark secret that he's using as a blackmail threat.

* In ''YoungDracula'', the Brannaghs don't seem at all fazed when the Count fires a flaming arrow with a letter attached to it into their garden table (while they are seated eating lunch at it).
* In one episode of ''BoyMeetsWorld'', Eric gets a job on the SelfParody ShowWithinAShow "Kid Gets Acquainted With the Universe", where he meets the show's actors who are played by the other cast members of ''Boy Meets World'', and yet he doesn't seem to notice that they look just like Cory, Shawn, Topanga and Jack.

* Something of a meta-example from ''Series/{{Merlin}}''. The show is filmed in the real French castle of Pierrefonds, which features a bizarre stone statue of a pelican with exposed breasts on the balustrade of the castle's exterior staircase. Often it appears in the background of certain shots, but so far none of the characters have commented on it.
