* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.

to:

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' being a game where cosmetic items only serves an aesthetic purpose, goggles aren't exempt from this.


Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, the Heavy has the War Goggles that does nothing but making him partially look like his VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic counterpart.

Added DiffLines:

* Brazilian food company Sadia has as its mascot [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-77-UMRQiQXo/VYCYvvGxb0I/AAAAAAABZRg/CWkU04sEYmc/s1600/sadia%2Bmascote.jpg Lequetreque]], a chicken wearing biker goggles.


* Koga the {{Jerkass}} NobleDemon of ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'' wears a sheathed sword that he never uses during battle. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d when he finally draws the thing to whack his way free of a demon's giant clutching hand. When [[ThoseTwoGuys his pair of loyal minions]] express surprise that he's never used the sword before, Koga admits [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments he doesn't even know how to fight with it]] -- he just took the sword off a corpse to carry [[RuleOfCool because he thought it would make him look cool]].

* ComicBook/{{Hellboy}} does not wear goggles. However, the fact that the filed-down horn stumps on his forehead were ''mistaken for goggles'' by many early fans goes to show how ubiquitous the "goggles as fashion accessory" idea is. Even Creator/GuillermoDelToro, the director of [[Film/{{Hellboy}} the movies]], thought they were goggles.

Added DiffLines:


[[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant This is not]] a command for [[Manga/{{Splatoon}} Goggles]] to do nothing, although [[IdiotHero some might prefer it that way]].

Added DiffLines:

%% ** You can buy a replica pair in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', and their description points out that [[LampshadeHanging "wearing them has no effect."]]


** In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik wears not only goggles that never leave the top of his head, but also spectacles. So he couldn't wear his goggles even if he wanted to. The only time he actually wears his goggles in one scene in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', where he dons them for dramatic purposes. Of course, they're back on top of his head in all of the scenes immediately following. Being the MadScientist he is, Robotnik probably uses them when welding his MechaMooks together... it's just that we never ''see'' him doing it.

to:

** There are goggle sprites in the original ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1''. See them [[http://info.sonicretro.org/Game_Secrets:Sonic_the_Hedgehog_%2816-bit%29 here]]. They were [[DummiedOut removed from the game]] before being programmed to do anything. It's speculated that they were intended to be SCUBA gear.

** Though set bonuses that change in-game stats have since been patched out of the game, goggles/hats/wigs/doo-rags still have a function: they distinguish newbies/Free-To-Play players (who don't have/can't get hats) from experienced players, help distinguish strangers from friends, and show what other games the player owns if they have a buy-in bonus.

Added DiffLines:

* Much like with the anime and manga, if you're a protagonist in a Franchise/{{Digimon}} game, odds are that you're wearing a pair of useless goggles.
** Keisuke manages to avert it however in ''VideoGame/DigimonStoryCyberSleuthHackersMemory'', as his goggles (though more of a visor really) are actually his Digivice, and he needs to put them on to log into [[CyberSpace Eden]]. He is shown with them on while using an item in battle.


* In ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', it borders on a RunningGag that the lead character always wears goggles. It started with [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Taichi/Tai]], then [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Daisuke/Davis]] actually started wearing Taichi's original goggles. ''Then'' [[Anime/DigimonTamers Takato]] wears them because he watched a different version of Digimon on television. Then there's [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Takuya]], [[Anime/DigimonXrosWars Taiki/Mikey]], [[Anime/DigimonXrosWarsTheYoungHuntersLeapingThroughTime Tagiru]], Tsurugi in ''Next'', and Hikaru in ''D-Cyber''. Strangely, [[OlderThanTheyThink the very first guy to wear goggles]] ([[NoExportForYou another guy named Taichi]] in ''[[Manga/DigimonVTamer01 V-Tamer 01]]'') actually got them as a gift from a pilot and [[UnbuiltTrope used them for that very purpose.]] In several instances, the characters do actually use them. The problem is that nobody else seems to ever be bothered by whatever condition prompts the current goggle boy to wear them.

** Well, every lead character aside from [[Anime/DigimonSavers Masaru]], but that's probably because he's too manly for them. However, [[Anime/DigimonXrosWars fans prefer goggles]]. Note that Masaru doesn't look like Elementary / Junior High school student, [[YoungerThanTheyLook despite the fact that he is the latter]].

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/WonderGirl Cassie Sandsmark originally wore aviation goggles to protect her eyes during flight and help disguise her identity, however she eventually started wearing the goggles as a hairband instead.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BoxxyQuestTheGatheringStorm'' gives us this FlavorText for the Steampunk Fedora item:
--> ''A needlessly expensive novelty hat with glued-on goggles, which do nothing.''


* The kiwi from ''WebAnimation/{{Kiwi}}'' dons a pair of pilot's goggles before jumping off the cliff. ''But he doesn't ever use them.''



* The kiwi from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kiwi}}'' dons a pair of pilots goggles before jumping off the cliff. ''But he doesn't ever use them.''
