%% One quote per page, thanks. Additional entries can go on the Quotes tab.

An Unusually Uninteresting Sight is something that is blatantly unusual, yet nobody seems to take notice of it. It could be an odd costume, UnusualEars, an [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud external monologue]], a visible weapon, or an animal that only vaguely resembles a normal one (such as a [[FurryFandom blue wolf wearing armor]]). For some reason, none of the bystanders take notice or comment on it.

When done well, this can help to establish a slightly different reality. When done badly, it can become creepy or ridiculous, depending on the show. In some cases this is justified with [[InvisibleToNormals not being seen by mortals]] or for some reason, if it's a kid's show/book/comic/other, it's often stated that the weirdness [[InvisibleToAdults cannot be seen by adults or doubters]].

While unusual hair or eye colors won't be noticed, they may not actually ''be there'' in the first place -- see HairColors. When the Unusually Uninteresting Sight is ignored by apathetic folks in a [[TheCity metropolis]], then that's CityOfWeirdos. The simplest explanation is that people may have simply gotten used to the sight and accept it as normal.

Possibly an extension of the BystanderSyndrome or NoBigDeal, contrast with MundaneMadeAwesome and FauxHorrific. Occasionally justified with a WeirdnessCensor. Common in MagicRealism and MundaneFantastic. See also CityOfWeirdos, FantasticallyIndifferent, ElephantInTheLivingRoom, LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy, MetallicarSyndrome and NotDistractedByTheSexy.

[[folder:Music]]
* Several Inugami Circus Dan videos depict the members working in offices, sitting in cafes, meeting old friends and generally going about their business like ordinary people whilst wearing their trademark white and black facepaint. None of the extras notice, let alone comment on it. Particularly noticeable example from about 1:34 in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1zj9hP4BrE this video]]
* Parodied in a Music/MariahCarey video (Boy - I Need You). It takes place in Tokyo with several giant monsters and mechs running amok, and the locals just go about their business.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Almost invoked with a spell in TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}, ''aura of the unremarkable'', which works as a sort of enforced version of this. It allows the target to perform any number of strange actions - perfectly in view of the public - and not have anyone view it as abnormal. They see and remember the actions normally, but unless it directly threatens them, they are magically compelled to think that there's nothing wrong with the someone walking up and stabbing the queen in broad daylight.
