* Princess Peach of the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' franchise has likely SeenItAll after all her years of being kidnapped and dragged across a surreal fantasy world, so she usually has an excuse for being largely unfazed by whatever she encounters. But ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' nonetheless has an egregious example of this with [[spoiler:her lack of reaction to the Ruined Dragon in the post-game. Here we have an [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever enormous]] and [[NonStandardCharacterDesign unusually realistic-looking]] dragon implied to have [[BeastOfTheApocalypse destroyed the Ruined Kingdom]] in which it is fought. Yet when she and Tiara are found next to the too-exhausted-from-battle-to-move creature, she comments on the Ruined Kingdom being a [[{{Understatement}} "fixer upper"]] but says absolutely nothing about the dragon itself.

* In the original [=PS1=] ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil1'' Barry will a one point walk into a room after Jill has just killed a giant snake, and its melting remains are still a smear on the floor and ask "Jill, have you found anything interesting?"
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' has some fun with this as Leon is no stranger to monsters, B.O.W.s, or Umbrella-style shenanigans. When faced with the massive transformed Salazar (think CombatTentacles and ManEatingPlant blended together with a giant skeleton) he only calmly remarks that after this fight there will be one less monster in the world. When he knows the island is going to be destroyed via SelfDestructSequence, he takes it in stride unlike poor Ashley:

* ** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'': In scenario Claire B, Claire and Sherry go past [[spoiler:Chief Irons]], who is HalfTheManHeUsedToBe. While Claire has seen this before, Sherry should be terrifed (they also have to descend the very manhole where he came from and spilled all of his blood).

** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' DLC gets you Javik, the sole survivor of a race thought to be dead fifty thousand years ago, and who are generally worshipped at near god levels (actual god levels by one race). Other than one cut scene, nobody outside of your party tends to notice him. Of course, Shepard is well-known throughout the Galaxy for [[MagneticHero attracting]] these [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits types of people]], so it's implied that people have become a little desensetised to the sight of a strange alien in their team;

*** However, a Hanar ''will'' recognize him and go all [[Film/WaynesWorld "I am not worthy!"]] on him. Later, a few Citadel civilians will approach Jaavik with awe, so it could just be that Shepard and Jaavik are too intimidating to be approachable.

A couple of other characters seem to assume that Javik is a drell that has undergone extensive cosmetic surgery.

*** The game does tend to imply that player Warlocks are something of an exception, although asking a guard where the Warlock trainers are will result in them commenting that they're keeping their eye on you. This is backed up when you notice that in Alliance cities, the Warlock trainers tend to look like they're hiding out somewhere, like in Stormwind where they're hanging out in the basement of an inconspicuous tavern, or in Ironforge where about six or seven of them are stuffed into a little, inconspicuous house. This is mostly true for the Horde as well; only in Undercity and Silvermoon do Warlocks practice openly.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI''; anytime you climb up a wall in plain sight, people will comment on it. Some might say that the game also plays the trope straight with respect to the arsenal Altair carries around with him, but it wasn't all that remarkable for someone to go armed in the 12th-century holy land, even if Altair does carry several more blades than are strictly necessary.
** People still assume TheGuardsMustBeCrazy when the aforementioned clearly and visibly heavily-armed Altair can pretend to be a monk and get away with it.
** Listening to people's comments when they notice Altair or Ezio climbing a wall shows that, while some think it's really strange, others assume you're just ''exercising''.
** It gets even more ridiculous in ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]]'', when Ezio (in ancient armor and armed to the teeth no less) can pull any civilian off a horse to steal it from them, usually running over them and several other pedestrians in the process, without nearby guards even batting an eyelash. But if you tear down a wanted poster within sight of the guards, oh boy...
** The games in the series also feature the LeapOfFaith - jumping off tall buildings or other high places in a very stylish manner and landing in hidings spots like carts of hay, without anyone ever paying attention to the fact that ''a man just fell from the sky and landed in a pile of hay''. Best explained by the RuleOfCool.

** By roughly the 1600s (around the timeframe of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag''), the typical assassin's uniform of white hooded robes ''should'' considered pretty strange. By the ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'', it would look ridiculous, considering that the general design is by that time 700 years old. In reality, nobody ever comments on it, except for assassins and Templars, who both recognize it as the uniform of the former (now, an ancient, secret guild of assassins having identical, easily identifiable uniforms should raise some questions, but of course it doesn't).

This is why the Frye siblings don't wear the hood and robes all the time and why some of Edward's outfits don't even include them.
