* ''VisualNovel/MonsterProm'': In a school full of monsters, everybody acts very casually to the weirdness around them, which includes The Slayer trying to kill all of them as well as an Interdimensional prince opening portals at random to push everyone into his dimensions and try to get one of the students as lover.

** And then there's ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', where Link can transform (screaming in agony in the process) into a Deku, a Goron and a Zora, soar from one place to another by growing wings & teleporting and alter the flow of time in front of anyone and ''no one'' notices.

This is used for a gag when infiltrating the Deku Palace. When Link encounters the captive monkey, the latter notes that a particular song is require to enter Woodfall Temple, but that Link will need a louder instrument than the Ocarina of Time for the song to work. Link then transforms into a Deku with the big pipes right there and asks for the song again, only for the monkey to ask who he is. Link does a FaceFault in response.

* The player character of ''VideoGame/EmilyWantsToPlay 2'' appears completely oblivious to the weirdness around them, based on the internal monologue. Just had a CreepyDoll standing inexplicably in the middle of your living room turn its head to look at you, Exorcist-style? "I can go to work now!"

* Handwaved in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2''. For a good part of the game, there's a big bounty on Pyra, and she's very easily recognized by the bright green crystal in her chest. However events in Uraya show the party's reputation as combatants is increasing in step with the knowledge of the bounty so most people just aren't stupid enough to pick a fight, especially once Rex and Pyra become visibly affiliated with a well-regarded mercenary company. There are exceptions, represented as enemy Driver groups on the field.
** Later oddities can be excused by the fact you have a top-ranking military official with you, one that's a legend to her people and TheDreaded to her enemies.

* An especially {{egregious}} example, courtesy of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'': after beating the boss Blizzeta and before you can collect your Heart Container, Yeto (who's a 20-foot-tall hulking yeti and the boss's husband) bursts through the door to the boss room, and, with a ''loud'' roar, ''shoves'' Link out of the way to get at Yeta's fallen body -- which ordinarily rather observant ExpositionFairy sidekick Midna seems to take no notice of. Indeed, there's later a camera rotation around the couple, and from what we can see Midna's still floating in the exit portal, not even sparing a sideways glance at the two yetis, waiting for Link to get the heart piece and vamoose.

* ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'': Even though the series is set in an alternate Earth equivalent of 16th century Europe, no one finds it strange that [[{{tomboy}} Seong-Mina]] traverses the continent in a loose-fitting halter top that [[UnderBoobs makes it easy to see she's topless]] underneath it, and [[{{loincloth}} a loincloth]] that [[PantyShot flashes her panties]] with nearly every step. And that's excluding the fact she's got [[BoobsOfSteel a nice set]] and [[ShesGotLegs legs rivaling]] [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun Li's]] - which combines this trope with NotDistractedByTheSexy.

* ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'': Shirou's first scene has a brief monologue in which he reminisces about the Fifth Holy Grail War's end, how the Servants are gone, and Fuyuki's starting to return to normalcy. And then he meets [[HotWitch Caster]]... so he bids her a good night, and goes on his own way without further comment.

* In the [=PS2=] game ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', Amaterasu is in the form of a wolf for the entirety of the game. Most people see Amaterasu merely as a wolf, but some spiritually sensitive individuals (such as a particular little girl) can see her colorful markings and hovering holy weapons. But even then, most of the population finds nothing odd about a white wolf wandering the city, buying items from shops, and offering rides on magically created lily pads to passersby. This is partly {{handwave}}d by the town's shrine implying white wolves are seen as special, but a few especially thick peasants think she's just a strange dog.
** Doing miracles right before them - unless scripted to be something relevant - usually does nothing more than make the person look at it in confusion or get scared for a second and then forget all about it. A tree that just shoots out of the ground before you? Water that flies across the street? You getting set on fire? Nothing unusual about that.

* In the ''FatalFrame'' series, characters will often have an opinion on furniture and foliage, but refuse to comment at all about things like trussed-up corpses lying on the floor, apparitions in the kitchen, or dolls with heads that move and hair that grows. They also rarely show any surprise or disbelief when they learn that ghosts exist.

** The first StarOcean has this as well. The two Earth humans in your party don't really notice anything strange, but it can be explained by them having found and seen a lot of different planets with different types of [[HumanAliens people]]. They pretty casually explain to the heroes that they don't have tails, and nobody on the human Star ship seems to notice that THEY do, but it still might be due to there being a wide variety of people with traits like that.
