** Also applies to running about in Jedi robes with a blue lightsaber at the Sith Academy on Korriban[[note]]though that actually gets a passing explanation -- the Academy gets a steady influx of Jedi that have fallen to the Dark Side.[[/note]], and to running about with a lightsaber at all in the Jedi-hating settlement on Dantooine in the sequel - only ''one'' guy there will give a damn if he notices you carrying one.



* Subverted in VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII-2: Most [=NPCs=] do react to [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mog]], and they'll even come running and ''crowd around'' when you use some of his... weirder powers.
** Unless you use its power very close to a person, then the people will start to run away. Considering what we see what happens when you use it on the people in [[spoiler:the dream version of Noel's world]] is quite understandable...

to:

* Vanille's unusual clothing and accent in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' is an instant clue to the player that she's not like the other party recruits on the Purge train, who wear machine-made modern clothing and speak with a uniform accent. However, the other ''characters'' don't remark on it. Even when she demonstrates ignorance of basic Cocoon life, like who the Primarch is, they just assume she's a major ditz.

* One your way to the Rank 5 fight in ''NoMoreHeroes'', a trail of blood pools leads you to a dead body (which also leads you to a path to the same fight) and everybody just goes on with their business. Possibly justified, considering what kind of environment Santa Destroy is.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', when playing as a mage, you quickly learn two things regarding BloodMagic: It is supposedly inherently evil, making it an officially shunned practice, and seriously lacking in the subtlety department, as even the most simple of blood magics invokes OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank. Now become a blood mage and notice that even the biggest nay-sayers won't as much as react on your reckless display and blatant disregard for the dangers of such magic. Hell, you can even turn your resident WhiteMage, who spends most of her dialogues sternly lecturing you and other users about the inherent dangers of BloodMagic, into one and she will never comment on the hipocrisy!

** The guards in the Arl of Denerim's Estate will ''not'' accept the player character trying to speak to anyone of too high rank or stumbling into an awkward liaison between a guard and one of the servants. They will, however, be perfectly fine with an Arcane Warrior Warden strolling around while ''translucent'' thanks to Fade Shield.

* In the original PS1 VideoGame/ResidentEvil 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?"

Added DiffLines:

* In the beginning of ''VisualNovel/MyHaremHeavenIsYandereHell'', no one in Yuuya and Haruka's class thinks they should intervene or get a teacher when Haruka goes into a flying rage over Yuuya's "rejection". It's apparently a regular occurrence.

* Lampshaded in ''[[ShadowHearts Shadow Hearts: From the New World]]''. Relatively normal Johnny is generally surprised and unnerved by all the bizarre things everyone else seems to shrug off. When he meets a giant, anthropomorphic, talking cat who also happens to be a Chicago mob boss, it becomes too much. Mao, the cat, asks, "what's so unusual about a talking cat these days, anyway," but Johnny protests that it ''is'' unusual and looks to the party for confirmation. When they don't back him up, he finally comes to a different conclusion:

** Justified in that Miku (first and third game) and Mayu (second game) were born with sixth senses. Miku's brother also has it (but is promptly kidnapped) and Mayu's twin sister Mio has a weaker version.

Added DiffLines:

* Among more mundane threats like potholes and angry homeowners, ''VideoGame/{{Paperboy}}'' has TheGrimReaper, of all things, as a random hazard that pops up around funeral homes. As weird as it is to have '''Death itself''' just chilling on the curbside, it's no more dangerous to run into than a dog or breakdancer is.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMinishCap'', no one seems to mind that Link is running around with what looks like a talking legless mallard on his head while shrinking or growing after jumping onto things.

* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' is already pretty weird, though to the series' credit, most of the major characters recognize that some of their lords, peers, allies, and enemies can be a bit strange. However, not a single person actually seems to notice how absurd [[http://sengokubasara.wikia.com/wiki/Honda_Tadakatsu Honda Tadakatsu]] is even by the standards of the setting, being an individual who can be described as "a Warring States [[Franchise/MobileSuitGundam Gundam]]" without exaggeration. He has rocket boosters, a BackpackCannon, a giant rotary [[ThisIsADrill drill]] [[BladeOnAStick spear[[, and laser-armed [[AttackDrone automated attack drones]]. He only speaks in engine noises and is well over twelve feet tall. No one questions ''any'' of this.
